inspiration monday....and an artsyville giveaway!


if you've ever received a goodie package from aimee over at artsyville, then you already know that delightful-giddy feeling you get from the moment you pull it from your mailbox.  so when her brand new washi tapes arrived, i was absolutely giggly-giddy, because not only has aimee picked such cute names for these sweet little gems, these are the colors of pure happiness!  and when it comes to washi projects, i say "let's play"!




idea #1:  how about taking a small cork square....
(this one is cut to 10"x10")





and jazzing it up with a piece of scrapbook paper and
some strips of "secret garden" washi tape!
now you've got a decorative canvas just waiting for some more artsy-goodies!





idea #2:
here's a little brown paper gift bag cutesyfied with aimee's "jolly town" washi tape.....
 tuck pizza delivery coupons and other fun stuff inside for your new neighbors!






idea #3: create a cute gift tag for someone special
using the "creative fire" washi tape and your favorite markers!






idea #4:
 here's a sweet little banner using the "happy trails" and "love charms" tape,
shipping tag remnants, chalk stamp pads, cotton string,  and micron pens.





and now my decorated cork square looks super happy, super colorful,
super playful, and super artsyvilled!






{idea #5:  of course, you probably knew i couldn't resist adding some more adhesive joy
to a page in my journal!  this "wild vine" tape makes the perfect roof for my little house,
and i somehow think that jane austen would love it, too!}

{supplies:  moleskine journal, derwent inktense pencils, pan pastel, pitt pens, 4B pencil,
artsyville wild vine washi tape}

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

now here's the best part.....aimee has generously offered to send one of you bloggy sweeties one roll of each design of her cute and colorful washi tapes!!  that's a total of six rolls of wonderful washis!!  woo hoo!!   all you have to do to receive aimee's washi tapes is leave a comment here on this post (just one per person, please!) by 10:00 p.m. EST on wednesday, september 18th.  one recipient will be chosen using the random generator, and i'll announce it here on my blog on thursday, september 19th!  please make sure your comment either links back to your blog, or you leave your e-mail so i can contact you if your name is chosen!  (this giveaway is open to all bloggy sweeties who are 18 years of age or older.)
