As I may have mentioned before, I love bringing in new ideas and techniques into my scrapbook toolbox. It keeps the hobby fresh and interesting, and motivates me to scrap and use up my stash.
One of the best ways I’ve found to discover new techniques is to attend one of Lain Ehmann’s free monthly scrapinars. Each month Lain hosts a live, online scrapbooking class that focuses on a specific topic. The classes are free when they are live, but are made available for replay at a small fee about a week later.
A couple of my favorites are all about washi tape, and are taught by the marvelous Monica Bradford of Scrap Inspired. (In case you were wondering, all affiliate links!) The first class Washi Wahoo! was a great place to start exploring creative ways to use washi. The second class Washi Wahoo Too! goes even further, and explores ways to make your own washi!
If you have wondered what the big deal is about washi tape and don’t know why anyone would buy it, or if you’ve bought it because you loved how it looked but are completely flummoxed about how to use it, these classes are for you. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed by these classes. Plus Monica is super fun!
Just a quick warning. After watching these, you are going to want to buy lots and lots of washi! You can find lots of washi at Two Peas in a Bucket. Love their selection.
If you have used washi tape before, do you have a favorite? Do share!
