Love My Tapes and a giveaway!!








{Reported by Ashley Harris}



Love My Tapes. Have you heard of them? Well if not, not to worry as you are about to hear plenty! They were a new exhibitor at CHA this summer and were one of the new companies I wanted to learn more about. Basically they have adhesive backed fabric rolls and fabric paper. They also have their own adhesive tape runners. Today I am going to feature the fabric tapes and fabric paper. Here we go!


Ease of use:
The fabric tapes were a cinch to use! So easy. Just peel off the backing and adhere where wanted. How hard is that? The fabric paper was a little more difficult, but if you work with it and have patience, it definitely pays off.


Construction/Durability:
This is one product that I am not going to worry about falling apart or falling off my page. The adhesive on the back is plenty tacky and will do well when put on my projects.


Usefulness:
I used these products for paper crafting, however, I believe that you would be able to use them on head bands, and other alterable projects.


Cost Effectiveness:
Compared to other fabric tapes on the market, and there aren't many, they are competitively priced if not a tad lower.


What I liked:
-I loved how versatile it is. You can wave it, pleat it, or just keep it flat.
-They have many cute patterns that can go with a lot of different patterned paper.


What I didn't like:
-The fabric paper was a little difficult to work with, but nothing that can't be overcome.


What I made:
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics OP White; Fabric Paper: Love My Tapes; Stamp: mama=love by Technique Tuesday; Ink: Black Dye ink by Stewart Superior; Flower: Prima; Pearl: Kaiser Craft; Ribbon: Misc



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Blossom; Patterned Paper: Canning Jar by October Afternoon; Flower: Maya Road; Fabric Tape: Love My Tapes; Ticket Stamp: Paper Trey Ink; Rub-on: Pebbles Inc; Pearl: Melissa Frances
