Happy June, friends!  Can you believe how fast this year is flying?  So crazy!  To welcome what will sure be a beautiful summer month, I wanted to share this awesome new sponsor of mine with you all!  I’m definitely a regular shopper at Cute Tape and one glance and I’m sure you will be too.  Cute Tape has all your packaging and stationery needs covered, it’s a dream shop for handmade shop owners, I tell ya!  My favorites are the Japanese washi tapes with a variety of colors and designs, so perfect for closing up boxes or bags or just to use as decoration on packages.  Read on to learn more about Glenda (shop owner) and this wonderful shop!




1) Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you decided to start up shop?
What you are looking at is how it all started…basically a website. It wasn’t the products in it, it was a design. I’m actually a designer and I love design. I love to look at great design and at times when not working on client projects, I like to come up with my own stuff, since honestly client work can be a bit restricting…ok sometimes, it can be really restricting.
I just enjoy creating something just for myself. Once I had a design, I didn’t exactly have anything to sell. The site changed and evolved day to day of course and at one point I research about organic stuff and while researching, somehow stumbled upon Japanese Washi Tape and a whole world of cutely designed stationery.
The thing is, there were no planning, not much thoughts – I just started doing this and here we are. It fits into what I love – great design, colors, pattern, anything creative. I love meeting creative people through this and has been a pleasure…with the exception of shipping =P

2) What are your favorite color combinations?
I really like the bright colors in terms of washi tape…such as orange, yellow, greens. But if you are talking about in general, I’m
into modern – so black, white and grey.

3) What is your most popular shop item?
I can’t say one is more popular than another, since every customer seem to have different taste. I personally like the sweets edition – franc boise. They look like little pastries and every time I see them, I want to eat them up…or I wish I can eat them up!

4) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
I tend to go for coffee flavor or mango flavor when it comes to ice cream. Once in a while during summer, I’ll crave for a banana split because I like the way it’s all decorated!!

Sandy A La Mode Signature


  1. Love so much stuff I don’t know where to start! I’m loving the grid & binder paper & polka dot glassine bags for perfect gift giving!

  2. Ah! I got so excited when I saw this giveaway. I love cute tape. I don’t have a favorite product (because I love all of them) but I love any of the tapes they have especially the striped ones :)

  3. I LOVE fun tape and things! THis giveaway is awesome!! My favorite? Pastel Polka Dots Green Peach Blue tape, small flowers Japanese washi tape, I’d totally get some green apple bakers twine and maybe some lower case neat writing stamps. I can think of good uses for those!

    I really want to win!

  4. Thank you so much for this giveaway!

    I LOVE the Margaret Craft Stamps – Birdcage Lace Key Stamp Set.

    I have wanted lace doily stamps for so long.


  5. Love, love, love Cute Tape! What a fab sponsor, Sandy!

    OK, so my fave item is the Kraft Handmade labels (so adorable!)

  6. Love all the Washi tape, but my favorite is probably the Black and White Dot Stripe Washi MT Masking Tape.

  7. I have a major soft spot for twine!!! I would definitely want to get some divine twine in green apple and stone gray….sigh…

  8. I can’t get enough of MT tape, I just discovered it and I think it is the greatest thing since chocolate! =)

  9. My favorite item is the Japanese Big Floral Lace Doily Pattern Wooden Rubber Stamp. I already added it to my favorite items on Etsy!

  10. This giveaway I can’t pass up because Cute Tape has so many cute items. Too many to narrow down to a favorite. I love everything but really like the Japanese tapes.

  11. Um, how am I supposed to pick just one favorite?? :D But since I have to… I’m going to pick the “small flowers” washi tape. It’s so cute!

  12. Wow, that IS a super awesome giveaway indeed!!!!
    i can’t choose a favorite from cute tape! sorry! I just favorite everything and anything!!!
    Please don’t let me win as I really won’t be able to choose!!!

    p.s. no, I’m kidding! PLEASE DO LET ME WIN!!

  13. i loooove this shop!!!

    in love with any of the happy tape – esp the ones with the hearts on them. swooooning!!!! im in love with their twine too. eeek!!!

  14. i love washi tape!!! my favorite one in the store is the pretty little garden floral tape! it says they’re out of stock~ i totally want it!

  15. i love this shop and love washi tape! too many faves, but i do love the pretty sorbet color and the modern black and white sets.

  16. Ooooh what an awesome giveaway! I love Washi tapes and the Sweets Edition – Cream Cake is one of my favs! Thanks for the chance.

  17. Eee! I love this shop. It’s so hard to choose an item. I definitely love all the different kinds of tape, the fabric, the polka dots :)

  18. Wild Flowers Decorative Fabric Tape is my favourite….and the Japanese SEWING Favorite Craft Stamps

  19. I like the bakers twine. I would pick a couple of those, probably purple and red or navy blue. They would be perfect for a project I am working on right now.

  20. Oh, my! What don’t I love from them?! It’s so hard to choose … but given that I’m a crazy cat lady, I think the “CAT Rubber Stamps – Japanese Favorite Stamp Set ” is among my very favorites ;).

    Have a great week!
