Twelve - tween birthday layout, with Love My Tapes

With all the washi tape love that's been going around lately, my Love My Tapes fabric and lace tapes have been feeling neglected, so I used a bunch of them for this page.

To create the background for my photos, I lined up several strips of the fabric tapes to get wider patterns.  You can either do this carefully and line up the pattern, but I kinda like the random look to emphasize they are separate pieces.

I alternated strips of the lace tape - I like the mix of textures and shades.

The brown polka dot pattern is from one of the self-adhesive fabric sheets - you want to grab one of these while they are still in the store - I love these.

The fabric and lace didn't need to be stitched in place, but these older letter stickers needed a little extra help, so I stitched right across them.  Why not?  :)

Supplies (Love My Tapes):
Fabric sheet - brown polka dot (FS022)
Fabric tapes- Sophie (FT003), Madison (FT005)
Lace tapes - 13mm beige (LT2002), 12mm brown (LT8024)

Other supplies:
PP, rub-ons - Basic Grey
flowers - Prima
letters - Rose Moka
buttons - Autumn Leaves
marker - Faber-Castell PITT pen
