The Road To A Friend's House

As I looked through some recently posted challenges (not that I've done any of the other ones I'd planned to do ...), I came across the current Paper Players' challenge:

CAS + washi tape? Perfect. This is what I made:

I decided to break open some of my washi tape collection that was new and still in the package. I found a pack of Recollections* (moment of silence) tape with these two patterns, and I immediately thought of my A Muse sentiment about the road to a friend's house. Even though I layered the white panel onto black before I mounted it onto the card front, there is A LOT of white space there. I might be itchy.

I couldn't decide if I liked the black tape better above or below the map-ish tape, so I didn't decide; I made one of each. Here's the other one:

Do you have a preference?

I still can't decide, but then I don't have to. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

*Recollections is now known as a Michael's store brand, but it used to be a H U G E scrapbooking store owned by Michael's. Wall-to-wall papers and embellishments to make your heart sing. They didn't have a lot of stamps, but I was in my paper collecting phase, and I kindof wished I could live there. It was second only to getting stranded in a book store in my world. Sadly, Michael's made the decision many years ago to close the Recollections stores. I might have wept. About that time, Michael's redid some of their stores to expand the scrapbook aisles. I like that some of the Recollections products are showing up at Michael's, but it's still not the same. :(

Products used: Recollections washi tape, A Muse sentiment, SU black card stock, and the following:


  1. I like the second one better, just because it has more color in the washi tape. That's the perfect sentiment for that design.


  2. I didn't know there were Recollection stores! This is what I learned today! I like the second card best because the road is closer to the sentiment and in my brain dead, post Easter entertaining state, it made more sense to have them close. :D

  3. I love that washi tape with that fabulous sentiment. I love that you chose to frame it with a little black to make it pop. I especially love the second one! So glad you shared this with the Paper Players this week


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
