I watched a video about how to make fabric tape and that looks pretty fun... now to find THAT type of tape around here and I can start playing (bought a awesome fabric remnant last night that will coordinate with my new cardstock)
Because it is a bit translucent, its appearance when it's on the roll is a bit deceiving. I at first thought the same thing- but liked the designs/patterns on it enough and bought them all. It looks just as pictured here, when you pull some off the roll and put it on something!
I bought some of the Target Happy Tape today! I was kinda underwhelmed at the store but bought it anyway. Bought one of each package but they were out of the pink/red. So I will go to the Fayetteville store tomorrow and maybe even WM to see if they have the Elmers.
I just used some on a mini album I am making for one of the girls at work and WOW! I am in love! Swoon!! This stuff is awesome! It gave my tags just the little "pop" they were needing. I am using Echo Park Little Girl paper and it matched.
I found them at our Target! Bought all three packages. Don't know when I'm gonna use them but I'll add them to my hoard.
I stopped by our Hobby Lobby and found the Tim Holtz Lost and Found stack on clearance, snapped that up and used my 40% off coupon on a Graphic 45 stack called Botanicabella. All in all a pretty good haul.
I JUST FOUND the ever-elusive Elmer's tape at da Wal-Marks! (Did your Grandparents call it 'The Wal-Marks?' )
My Mom called me up, asking for a ride to WM, to exchange a car battery. I used it as a chance to check out another WM for the *@&$ tape. Found it! I only bought one pack, tho- I only liked one package of it- another pack had one roll in the pack I liked, but I didn't want the other rolls. And since I'm up to my neck in tape now, I could live with just three more rolls max.
Thanks to my Step-Father rediscovering the working world in retirement and becoming a Wal-Mart door greeter (is this a new stage in life?) - I was able to get 15% off the tape. Actually, my Mom got the discount (I guess they don't question WHO it is wielding the employee card) cuz she bought the tape for me.
Kory -how does the tape compare to target and "normal" washi tape?
I had a friend that worked at walmart and I think she said spouses could use the discount and she was mad that her live in boyfriend could not... but she makes things up sometime just to complain, so I am not sure.

I havent unwrapped it and played with it, yet- it doesn't seem to be as colorful- but it's nice. I got the dark colored set. I guess that's why it's not as colorful, lol. I guess I'm trying to say it seems a bit more matte?
Have not found the elmer's at the 2 walmarts I've been in this week but I have seen the Up & Up Tape at all 4 Targets that are less than 10 mins from my house. Yes FOUR Targets....I'm in a Target Spawning area.
I'm another "who cares I like it & I'm going to use it" scrapper. I have stuff in my 43 yo baby book that have turned "vintaged" but still in great condition ie. held up to abuse, the pages are intact and no tearing/falling apart of photos & memorabilia
Isn't the important thing not having the non-acid free stuff not touching the photo? ..woah, too many nots...Um, I mean photos should only have acid free things touching them and it is more or less ok for things not acid free to be on the rest of the layout?
This thread has been deadly! Just took a trip through a site that offers about a zillion rollls of washi tape and ended up spending $40.00! Now, just have to figure out what the heck to do with all that tape!
Im sorry I didnt take a picture. I saw blacks, reds, pinks~that I can remember. Scallops, regular, damasks, thick and thin, solids. I think there were 3 in the pack. They had them in the middle isle by the Recollections wall decore.
I've just returned from searching M's for their Recollections Washi. But of course I went to my nearest M's, which is the suckiest at putting stock out- none to be seen!!! They did have the new giant-size Smashbooks- but none of the new Smash Tape- but they did have a hook up for the new Calendar-Tape. Of course the hook was empty.
I hate my nearest Ms!
I wish SB.com would get the new Smash tape in stock!
Kory, I went to 2 M's today and got some good clearance items. The first 1 was 10 miles away. Where I saw the new items. They have some new SEI and Recollections pads too. The 2nd 1 was about 14 miles away, they didnt have much and their clearance items were blah...They did NOT have those tapes I mentioned to you.
