Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 3

Hi everyone! I am back with the final post of the Wonderland Tea Party Folio series. If you missed the first two posts you can find them HERE and HERE.

This page has no pockets or flaps but I used a printable as the main focus and added a leftover bit of decorative cardstock, lace and pom pom trim.

I dug into my stash of Prima flowers which I layered, added a button and used the leaf and leaf sprig thinlits from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to finish off the flower.

I used the other insert that I had cut from the Photo Box Folder Diecut (retired) as an insert. All I added to it was the pointing finger sticker that I had in my stash.

I created this page with an assortment of printables, teacups, ticket stubs and a rabbit. The pocket holds a tag and cut a part and next to that is the Waterfall card that I cut from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits. I glued three of the sides down to create a “pocket” to hold more tags.

This page I created a belly band to hold a little book.

The book I created from an assortment of scraps of cardstock, notebook paper and a page from an Alice in Wonderland story book.

I did take the largest tag thinlit and folded a piece of patterned cardstock in half, placed slightly below the “cut” of the thinlit to create a page to sew into this book.

The last page of the journal I kept pretty simple. I created a double pocket from a printable and dressed it up with more Prima flowers and another leaf thinlit.

I didn’t mention in the previous posts about the closure I “was” going to use on my folio. I had actually punched holes, added brads and strung elastic to hold the journal together but I didn’t go back far enough with the holes on the journal to keep the elastic in place…it kept slipping off. So I adhered a small strip of cardstock to the back of the journal and on the inside I glued a piece of cardstock on three sides to create a pocket. Not what I had originally envisioned but it works!

I hope you have enjoyed following along on the process of this journal and as always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 2

Hi everyone! I’m back and I want to share a couple pages from my Wonderland Tea Party Folio (part three I will try and share tomorrow). If by chance you missed part one of my folio reveal you can find that post HERE.

I used the Pocket Thinlit from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to create a place to add tags and printables. I only glued it on two sides to create another pocket behind the pocket. I added a scalloped diecut from the Gift Box with Scallop Edges and Label Diecut that I had leftover from a previous project to the fold over on the pocket.

I adhered a couple of leaf sprigs that I had cut from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to a crocheted flower that I had in my stash to dress it up a bit.

I adhered an empty tea bag ( I carefully cut the top of the tea bag to create a pocket) on two sides to create another pocket. I cut out two of the smallest size tags from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits and added re-enforcers to the top of both tags. On one tag I glued the fussy cut image of the Mad Hatter to the top and on the other tag I added an Alice in Wonderland postage stamp from my stash. With this being a tea party theme I had to cut out a few of the teacups from the Teacup and Spoon Diecut and add as tag through out the journal.

The next page I matted with patterned cardstock and adhered a multi teacup printable (fussy cut) to create a pocket to hold the largest tag and teacup diecuts. I also added a teapot with tea time stickers to the bottom corner of the page.

I left the top of this page open so I could add an insert. I cut out two Photo Box Folders Diecuts (retired) (one to be used on an upcoming page) and glued a patterned cardstock, Alice image and oval diecut to one side of the insert. I adhered a fussy cut image to the tag too.

I used another printable that I fussy cut and adhered to create a pocket.

I embossed the tag with Queen of Heart Embossing Folder (retired), lightly inked over the embossed area with chalk ink and added a decorative brad to the top.

The next page I added another printable as a pocket.

I used the King of Spades Embossing Folder (retired) on this tag, lightly inked over the embossed area with a chalk ink and added the crown brad to the top of the tag.

This page has another set of double pockets with lots of tags and journaling cards.

Of course I had to add another teacup diecut to one of the pockets.

I’m going to stop here and will pick up (I hope) tomorrow with the final reveal of my journal. Eileen also has a new blog post today that shares more creativity from her team and you can find that post HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 1

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a partial reveal of my folio that I created for Eileen Hull’s Chapter two Release Party (Thursday on my blog I’ll do a part 2 and maybe a part 3 on Friday…there’s a lot to share). I will start with how I created the cover of this folio so lets get started.

I cut two of the Folio Journal Diecut covers out from a file folder. Since the file folder isn’t as thick as the chipboard/mat board generally used to create the journal I ran each cover spine end first into the Diecut Machine. I ran that ends three to four times over the spine before finally running the whole diecut through the machine. I also used a bone folder to score the indention further before folded the spine on each cover and adhering together. Since I only ran the “cover” part of the diecut through once there is no indention . Plus it will be covered with cardstock/scrapbook paper to make it more sturdy.

I cut the “book hinge” from the Book Binding Thinlit, folded and applied Red Line Tape onto every other fold and stuck together.

I adhered the book hinge to the inside spine.

I cut patterned cardstock to fit/cover each side of the hinge. Instead of gluing each side of the page together I left an opening for a tag/insert. As you can see the initial folio started out tropical but with the cardstock being double sided I went with a colorful Alice in Wonderland instead.

The first page I used an assortment of leftover scraps, embellishments and printables. I glued only the bottom half of the heart to the page to create a pocket.

I applied an Adhesive Sheet to a piece of patterned cardstock before cutting out the wonderland sentiment from the Holiday Words Thinlits (retired). I glued/placed the chipboard letters that spell out Alice, the “in” sticker and the wonderland diecut onto the heart. The bunny is a printable and I used a flower and botton from my stash and I cut a leaf from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to complete.

As you can see there is a hidden surprise in the heart pocket! I cut two of the waterfall card thinlits out from Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits to create the covers for a mini booklet. I cut the pages inside smaller, punched holes in the covers, pages and tied together with bakers twine. I decorated with a fussy cut image of Alice and a diecut frame to finish.

I cut a tag for the inside of the page and added re-enforcer thinlit to either side of the tag before tying off fabric to the tag.

There you have it! As always if you have any questions please let me know. Also be sure to stop back Thursday to see more photos of the inside of this folio. If you aren’t caught up on the latest from Eileen Hull’s Inspiration and Educators Teams you can find these posts HERE and HERE.

Alice in Wonderland Junk Journal

Hi there! What a busy month this has been!!! I’m still in the middle of remodeling my bathroom and having back problems to boot…it bites getting old…which makes it hard to sit, move or do much of anything. 
I do want to share some photos of a junk journal I created along with a short video of the 132 pages that are inside. 
Also I am submitting my journal for Eileen Hull’s Art with Heart “Anything Goes” Challenge that is going on this month. I had begun a ATB at the beginning of the month and it just wasn’t coming together so I put it aside. I have learned hard lessons from trying to force creativity when it just isn’t there and have came away with a ruined project. So maybe later something will click and I’ll finish it.

I hope you enjoy the video. I had to learn how to use Adobe Element by myself…lots of trial and error on my part…but I think the video turned out ok considering. 🙂

I added two signatures which was 16 papers in one and 17 papers in the other signature which is 132 pages front and back.

The pocket watch is a Tattered Angels chipboard piece that I painted with some Tim Holtz Distressed Crackle Paint, added a Marion Smith bunny image and finished off with lace, buttons, dew drop and flowers.

Pages and pages of fun crafty goodness!

Close up of one of the pockets with tags.

I had received the green tea bag and the tea cup brad in swaps and I was glad I was able to use them on this page. The Mad Hatter image is from a collage sheet I got from Altered Pages.

Supplies Used:
Digital Images: Altered Pages, Dreamz EtCetera, Cemerony
File Folder, Cardstock, notebook paper, scrapbook paper, rubber stamps, baker’s twine, ribbon, lace, buttons, dew drops, chipboard pieces, paper flowers 

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is awesome and enjoy creating!
