Welcome to another Fabulous Friday Challenge! Here at Frosted Designs, we try to encourage you to try new things and this challenge with be new to many of you! We would love to see Washi Tape on your cards, layouts and off the page projects! What is Washi Tape? It is decorative masking tape... that's all!! And you can make your own if you don't own any! One technique... get out a roll of tape, stamp a design on it or color it and you have your own Washi Tape!! Don't want to make your own? Well, that is not a problem either, many of the most popular manufacturers are now making their own Washi Tape that coordinates with their paper lines! My Little Shoebox is this week's sponsor and Carol designs for them as well as us! Look at what she created with their fabulous products....
Carol will be back Sunday with a tutorial to show you how she made her own Washi tape!
The rest of our design team has provided some amazing inspiration for you....
I grew up in my parent's garment factory, and was surrounded by beautiful fabrics, laces, ribbons, and buttons. My mommy used to make tiny dresses for my dolls out of leftover fabrics, and I would dress them with ribbons, and buttons.
My daddy loved to take pictures of my brothers, sister, and me, so my mommy was dedicated to keeping family photo albums. We would put the albums together with whatever material we could find in the factory.
Fast forward to 2001. When my loving husband, Cesar and I got married, I had designed our wedding invitations. Then I went to work designing our wedding albums. I arranged the cards, papers and embellishments to go with our photographs and wedding theme, and ended up incorporating a lot of fabric patterns and accessories in my design.
My wedding album was a big hit! When everybody started asking me who my designer was, I knew I had done something right. With encouragement from Cesar and my family I started "My Little Shoebox" in the spring of 2005.
My goal is to encourage people to take their precious photographs out of their "little shoeboxes" and turn their personal memories into creations that will endure for generations. The idea behind "My Little Shoebox" is to make scrapbooking simple, quick, uniquely personalized, and most importantly, beautiful.
Thank you for letting me share my vision with you. I sincerely hope you like it.
