{washi} Bliss

Woo–hoo and happy Saturday! I couldn't be more excited to announce a new monthly feature I'll be writing for the DeNami Design blog. It's called… drum roll please…


Have you heard the news? DeNami Design is now carrying washi tape. You should definitely check out the collection. So many cute designs, right? I am hoping that with this feature I can inspire you to use washi tape in lots of fun and unique ways. Please plan to join me on the DeNami Design blog on the fourth Monday of every month. I'll give you a heads up here on My Little Slice of Bliss so you'll know it's time. You never know, I might even throw in a little giveaway right here so you'll want to stay tuned in. ;-)

How about a little washi tape inspiration right now? Here's a little ditty I made up for Christmas.


This couldn't have been simpler! I used DeNami's Polka Dot Background stamp, Whimsical Merry Christmas stamp, Versafine Satin Red ink, and Red/White Dots washi tape, all from the DeNami Design store. That sweet birdie tree is a premade dimensional sticker I picked up on clearance at A.C. Moore after Christmas last year. See how that simple strip of washi tape grounds the tree and sentiment?

I'm working on lots of inspiring ideas for ways to use washi tape in your papercrafting. My first official Ways With Washi post debuts on Monday, January 28. So be sure to check in then! In the meantime, we have a brand-new stamp release, with sneak peeks kicking off tomorrow. I'm so excited about all of the new stamps. You are going to love them!

Thanks for stopping by today for a little slice of {washi} bliss!
