Use Your Stash Washi Tape Time

December's Use Your Stash Blog Hop theme is Washi Tape. There are only three this month, so all the hoppers are listed at the bottom so you can move right along.

My Washi tape has a great home in one of the Close To My Heart small organizers and as you see, I do have a collection beginning. There will be a few more washi tape dispensers in my future.

And with my need to organize, my organizer is labeled on the top for traveling in the Close To My Heart rolling cart and on the front panel (not shown) for easy location on my shelves.

With our new 2016 Everyday Life Planner (which has it's own coordinating washi tape), it just made sense to use some of my stash to get my life organized, or at least try.

After a bit of testing, I found the pink polka dot and the arrow washi tapes to look real good with the colors of the planner.

My favorite is the pink!!

Here is the beginning of my planning -- and it works great -- so get out your stash of washi tape and find a new project to show it some love!!

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 

The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
