Easter Layout with Love My Tapes

Today I am sharing another Easter layout!  I created this one for the Love My Tapes Design Team and it features the Happy Easter collection from Echo Park.

The 4 tapes I used on my project are *new* to the Love My Tapes Etsy shop:

I decided I wanted to use narrow strips of washi tape to accent this Easter egg border.  The first step was to pull out my ruler and craft knife and apply a piece of the hot pink striped tape to my cutting mat.  I made a point to just lightly adhere the tape so that it would be easy to remove.

I used the grid on the mat to help me cut straight thin strips which I peeled off and adhered in place.

I placed the finished piece across the center of the layout and then added the other elements.

In the upper left corner, I used a couple pieces of washi tape to create a banner under the title sticker.  I specifically chose the purple dot tape because it matches my daughter's dress.  The Echo Park Happy Easter paper I used did not have any purple in it at all and this is my favorite way to tie the photos to the layout.

The top center of the layout is occupied by a Project Life style pocket card.  I created a journaling card to tuck behind it because I tend to use a lot of hidden journaling.  I incorporated the same thin strips of hot pink striped washi I used on the Easter Egg strip.

I used a couple more strips of washi on the bottom corner of the page to anchor a small embellishment cluster:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
