It’s Wednesday and that means it’s Washi Wednesday!
I’ve got a quick little video tip to share with you today. I just really started getting into using my Traveler’s Notebook. Which Freckled Fawn TN is your favorite? Right now I am loving the sleek Pink Bows.
Some of the other designers have created some sketch inspiration for you so I’ll tack their lovely projects onto the end of my post.
The sketch shows a large heart covered in washi and I decided to take that idea and apply it to my title.
I cut out my letters on my Silhouette and then used the washi strips included in the February kit to cover them. It’s a super fun way to get an interesting look and use up some of the washi in your stash. 🙂
I also used some of the Love Journal cards and cut the orange florals from them. LOVE that floral motif. So pretty!
The little button stickers were the perfect finishing touch. I ended up threading them with a bit of crochet twine and popped them up. So cute!
You can see how it all came together in the video below.
Full disclosure, I thought I was doing the Washi Tape challenge, but I didn’t realize it had a sketch (hanging my head in shame), so I mention it in the video. Either way, I hope you’ll try something fun using your washi!
Doe here with a super fun challenge and sketch. Before we get to this week’s Sketch+ Challenge. It’s time to announce our winner from last week!
Big congrats to Kelly Sroka! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get your prize sent out.
Alright. Now’s the time to pull out that huge stash of washi tape; you know that plastic bin you have hidden in your bedroom closet. I know you all have some ;). This is a safe space, no judgement. It’s okay to be addicted to washi. I LOVE washi!! All the pattern options and the ease of using it. It’s perfection.
The challenge today is to use your washi to make a large shape that will work as your crafty background. You can do this on a layout, on a card, etc.
Step One : Pull out some coordinating washi rolls. You can coordinate by color or pattern. Then, on your layout, lightly trace a large shape (heart, star, square, etc).
Step Two : Use your washi rolls to fill in the shape you’ve traced. You can use scissors to cut the edges or even a credit card (see tutorial HERE). Or, to make it even easier, you can cut out the shape after you’ve finished and then just glue the shape onto a new layout.
Step Three : Add photos, embellishments, and journaling! I haven’t done my journaling yet because it’s TOP SECRET! And I didn’t want to photograph it hehe.
I loved seeing everyone’s creations who participated last week. And I can’t wait to see what you guys do with your washi tape this week! Project entries are due by Wednesday Feb 15th at 9PM MST. Check back Thursday for another fun challenge & to see who won!

In today’s video, I share how to make a fun Valentine card using the new washi book that is part of the February kits. This technique is super easy & could be used in a bunch of different ways. I hope this idea sparks some inspiration. Let’s get started!
For today’s Washi Wednesday, I searched pinterest for washi organization ideas and I really hit the motherload! There are so many wonderful ideas out there. Here are some of my favorite washi storage ideas:
