It looks easy enough. I am making journaling spots for the first time for another swap, but the corners don't have to be rounded. I am going to get me a corner rounder this weekend, though. I will be going through all of my stamps to find ones that aren't holiday specific. I am pretty sure I have some general ones.

I'm pretty sure I got the arrow washi tape at Michaels a while ago.
The chipboard stamp I got from the Member of the Month swap. We pick a person to spoil each month. I was the winner in January so that was one of the gifts I got. I love them!!

FYI, everyone. Michael's has Washi tape on clearance for $1.99. The original price was $4.99. Beautiful colors! I used my washi for the first time for this swap and I really like it, so I will be using more of it.

There are different ways to use the washi? Sounds cool! Jessica, there will be a second package going out to you next week. There was something that I accidentally left out of the package. But don't worry, it won't affect you swapping the cards out.

I forgot to add that the washi tape (that is on clearance at Michael's)are DOUBLE rolls of Washi tape. So you get two beautiful rolls for $1.99!

Thanks everyone. I love the washi tape. I use it on my project life cards, use it on greeting cards, and use it on my scrapbook layouts. I have to put another tutorial together for our card club for washi tape, so when I do I'll post the pictures.

Congrats on the little one scrappy day!!

Artesha, I got your cards today! Love them ALL. Especially the one with the banner
