Washi Wednesday!


I kinda like the sound of that! 

AND I got crafty with my washi tape. I used my birthday money and got a typewriter. I gotta tell  you. I am a lazy scrapper. Getting out of my room, going to printer, lining up journaling, the printing, cutting..etc...BLEH! 

So I decided to invest in a typewriter that I just pull out, plug in and type my journaling right then and there and I loooove it. I find myself journaling MORE! So that is what I focused on with this layout. 

So first, I played with the washi design on a piece of white cardstock making sure it was lined up where my photo was going to be and then just typed away.  
All cardstock is Core'dinations Cardstock, Washi is a mix of some I found on ebay, Queen & Co. and My Mind's Eye. Letters are Heidi Swapp. I cut the tag from my Silhouette with some Kraft Core and used a Cocao Daisy stamp on it...love this wine stamp I got from there...I use it a lot :)

How cool that you got yourself a type writer. That's neat how you typed the journaling over the washi tape strips!

I love washi tape, and the look of the old typewriter print on top is so adorable. I will have to remember this idea.
