So let's get started!  You should have arrived here from Annette's Blog!  If you are just starting out, please start out at the Pretty Little Studio Blog.
I have to admit I was a little nervous, because this was my first time working with the Pretty Little Studio Die Cuts, but once I got started, I fell in LOVE!!  And it was even more fun, mixing the Die Cuts with the Love My Tape Washi Tapes and Lace Tapes.  I created a layout, card, and tag with both products.

I used the LMT Washi Tape on my layout to create two pleated flowers.  I cut a 2 inch and 1.5 inch circle from cardstock, and then pleated the Washi Tape from the outside edge of the circle, to the center.  I finished it off by adding a wooden button to the center.
Supplies Used:  Patterned Paper:  Studio Calico & Dear Lizzy; Die Cuts:  Pretty Little Studio; Washi Tape:  Love My Tapes; Thickers:  American Crafts; Font:  Pacifico; Enamel Dots:  My Mind's Eye; Buttons:  Stampin' Up; Flair Button:  PandaEightDesigns; Wood Veneer:  Freckled Fawn; Chevron Mask:  Studio Calico; Baker's Twine:  Maya Road
For my card, I used one of the Lace Tapes and just pleated it across the center, to add a little bit of texture. 

Supplies Used:  Patterned Paper:  Dear Lizzy & American Crafts; Die Cuts:  Pretty Little Studio; Lace Tape:  Love My Tapes; Letter Stickers:  Jillibean Soup; Word Stamp:  Dear Lizzy; Baker's Twine:  The Twinery

I used the Pink Polka Dot Washi Tape on my tag, to create the little "tassel" at the top.  I adhered the Washi Tape to the front and backside of a strip of White cardstock.  Then I cut along the edge and folded the piece in half and a off center.

Supplies Used:  Patterned Paper:  Crate Paper; Die Cut:  Pretty Little Studio; Washi Tape:  Love My Tapes; Modeling Paste:  Liquitex; Mask:  The Crafter's Workshop; Wood Veneer:  Freckled Fawn; Color Shine:  Heidi Swapp; Doily:  Hobby Lobby; Other:  Shipping Tag & Twine
