Washi, Washi, Washi: Foil Edition, Part 1

I’m aware that I’ve got a washi problem. As in, I don’t know if I have any self-control when it comes to those gleaming, adorable, printed-in-any-pattern-and-texture-you-can-imagine rolls…. I have Way. To. Many. And I don’t think I could part with a single one. Sad (pathetic, really), but true. I won’t even tell you how many I’ve got, let’s just say they have their own home in my desk area! ๐Ÿ™‚

And I of course have now discovered Foil Washi. How did I not know about this wonderful marvel before now?!?! So pretty! Shiny. And Sticky. And Functional. And Fun! So I’m now going to delight you with some photos of my new washi. (Links to Etsy seller is at the bottom of this post!)

Gorgeous Mint, Black & Silver…

To-Do List- Sandcastles & Seashells

Who doesn’t love Sandcastles in the Summer?! I found these great stickers, again by one of my favorite brands (Sticko) and felt inspired to do something a little different. I normally love color, but these sand-inspired stickers were really crying out for something more tame:

This washi tape I never really liked (I’ve since swapped it!) but it fit for this theme:

Applying my washi:

And then add those adorable sandcastles!

Sandcastles and Seashells. A more muted theme than I normally like, but I also like that it’s different.

To-Do List- Bear in a Balloon

I had some great Hot Air Balloon stickers with a little sparkle (and you know me!) that were begging for a new home- so they are the inspiration for this weeks list!

IMG_3402

Chose some paper and washi- I’m still trying to use up what I put on these silly pieces of cardboard… they didn’t work for me at all. So annoying!

IMG_3403

IMG_3404

This washi tape is one of my FAVORITES! Such a pretty mix of colors and the floral pattern really brightens things up. And look who’s along for the ride in the sticker at the bottom! Our little Bear friend… on ย beautiful balloon ride.

Happy Organizing.

To-Do List- Ladylike Bugs

So the stickers that inspired this weeks list are lady bugs….but not in the traditional “black & red” ladybug way. So I’ve deemed them Ladylike Bugs. Their colors are so much sweeter and girlier!

IMG_3260

Aren’t they soooo cute?! I chose washi and paper:

IMG_3261

Those adorable Ladies also called for some gold glitter tape!

So here they are, keeping each other company till they’re given a list.

Washi- Animal Prints

Todays washi show-and-tell is the traditional rice paper washi tape;
tearable, re-usable and slightly transparent.

I’m showing you my new Animal Print washi!

IMG_6942

They are awfully fun and I got them for a steal.
Don’t you think the red nails are matching these?! Lol.
The brand of tape is “Little B” and I found these in a random store in NYC. Sorry!
I have Zebra, Cheetah, Leopard and Snakeskin.

Here is a bit in my Filo…

IMG_6943

I thought the Cheetah kind of went with my Thanksgiving scheme… this was taken in November.

I’m sure these will be visited frequently in the New Year.

Washi- Paper Printables

In keeping with this little mini-series on Washi, another form that I use OFTEN is printing out cute things and then sticking them into my Filofax. While technically this isn’t “Washi” in the traditional sense, it’s still a decorative stick-in and a very cost effective way to get cute things you otherwise wouldn’t use. And you can create your own! I got these digital washi tapes from a free online download last month during Thanksgiving time:

IMG_6941

Of course, they’ve been cut out already in the this pic. I then lined them up on the table how I wanted them to look when pasted into my Filo:

IMG_6946

And then I stuck them in!

IMG_6948

Looking so cute- and you can do this with any print, any size, for any reason.

IMG_6947

Here is the other little guy with one of my Thanksgiving Snoopy stickers:

IMG_6949

You can layer two for this look! This is a new idea even to me, and I’m hoping to use it a lot more when I need a color or pattern that I don’t have in an “actual” washi tape.

Happy Washi-ing. ๐Ÿ™‚

So fun!
