Using Washi for Christmas!

Hey Hey Hey! It's Jillian from Paper à la Mode! I'm getting my Washi on this week for Christmas! 

I've had several of these little birdhouse ornaments I got from my local craft store laying around. I have painted them, papered them, embellished them, but never Washi'd them! Until now of course. Washi works great on chipboard!! Here's my project! It's in my fake tree right now, until we get our real one. I just can't get rid of that tree, it was my husband and I's first Christmas tree. We lived in Hawaii and real ones were expensive and didn't last long. So we decided for our stay there, we'd use an artificial tree. Now that we're in California, we get a real tree but I still put up this one. So the "Christmas Love" sentiment really does work in this situation. I love this little fake tree. <3

So my question to you is, how are you going to make your holidays brighter with Washi tape??

Washi Up Wednesday

Welcome Welcome Washi Up Wednesday!! Let me say I am soo super excited to part of this wonderful design team there these ladies are soo creative. There are soo many cute washi tapes. My theme today is using washi tape that has flowers on it. For my project today I made a Birthday card I dont ever have enought of those. My background paper is from My Minds Eye Miss Caroline 6x6 paper pad, then I tore off the first layer of a 4x4 from a box, then i used acrylic paint and painted the 4x4 square. I put some washi tape on chipboard and cut it out the border on the bottom of the card and the swirl using My Favorite Things dies. I then used my Gypsy to size up the flowers, they are cut from Cricut cart Flower Shoppe, they were cut on my Expression. I used the Martha Stewart leaf punch, and the birthday sentiment
I am soo happy the way this card turned out I will have to make a few more to have on hand. Be sure to drop in TSQ Royal shoppe and check out all her goodies she has. Thanks for stopping in and visiting,

Now make sure you join us in our Washi UP Challenge Flower Challenge
