Thank You Malisa and new AIW kits available on my Etsy Store!

I received my very first RAK from Malisa and I was so excited that I forgot to cover my address on the package, so I had to do another video later on that day to share my goodies. Malisa was so kind and generous to do this for me. I even received this tag that she made, just especially for me. So beautiful! I think I may have to make one now and send her one for sure!
I had such a wonderful response from everyone regarding my AIW kit that I decided to come up with a new Kit depicting "Wizard of Oz" with a twist.... I'm calling this mini, "Wicked Shoes." Well stay tuned for that one! Have a Wonderful Easter Everyone!

So many ideas so little time!

So, here I am sandwiched between my 2 kids in bed. My husband is out of town and I feel like I could have gotten more done today, but didn't get the chance to do it. I still have thoughts in my head regarding my video tutorials and how I still need to make atleast 1 more, for the Queen Corset, then I should be done. Then on to the next!

My Alice In Wonderland Mini Album

Here is my Corset Page. If you watch the Tim Burton movie, I got this inspiration from the Queen of Hearts. Here, I stamped on the hearts and embossed it with gold Utee, then I outlined the hearts with glue and sprinkled black glitter and then drew in black curvey lines with a black marker. I then added black mesh to some tacky tape and covered it with a vintage ribbon with black trim. Once that was done, I added my eyelets and glued it down onto the page (adding glue to only the sides and bottom of the corset, so that I can slip in a tag from the top. Last, I then added the gold lace.
This is my Mushroom page. I drew the mushrooms myself and used water pencils for the colors. Then, I "painted" Glossy Accents on top of them to give it a shiny look. I cut out the mushrooms and glued it onto a piece of acetate to make the pocket.

My Teacup page was inspired by the Mad Hatter Unbirthday scene. I used my teacup pattern and cut them out. I embossed them with some swirl stamps and distressed all around. Then, I cut some slits on the top portion of some of them, so that I can tuck one on top of the other. I wanted to use this page for tags, so after I was done with the stacking of my teacups, I glued them down onto a piece of cardstock for reinforcement and to make it easy for me to slide my tags back in.

Here my Mad Hatter was cut out from a cereal box. I covered each side with cardstock and glimmer misted them. I sanded the edges down to make it smoother. After that, I wet embossed all around the edges with an embossing pen and added adhesive to my ribbon.

Here is a picture of my Charm. I had alcohol inked my bottle to give it more the aged look. I also added Distress ink along the edges of the "Drink Me" tag. A piece of white thread that was doubled up was used to tie the tag to the bottle.

Here is my cover. I glimmer misted the song sheet and then tore and folded the edges. Once that was done, I glued it on to the cover and then wet embossed all around with gold Utee. I added my doorknob (from 7 gypsies, in case you want to purchase one) key and keyhole. Then I added the Stud swirls (from Prima) and added my gold letters (which is hard to read), but it says "Wonderland." A clock charm used instead of the "O."
I am planning on making a video for all of these pages on Youtube. Some of it will be up tonight and some during the week. Let me know if you have any questions and I will be glad to answer them or maybe make another video for you.

Thank You Laura!

Thank you Laura for being the first to purchase the Alice Kit! I just wanted to let you that I've made a video on Youtube showing all the items that are included in the kit.

And for everyone else that have purchased the kits, I forgot to show the 2 O rings, eyelets, and I have added a few more stamped tags! I will be making videos regarding how to put the Mad Hatter hat together and the corset. Please let me know if there are any other questions you might have or if there are any other tutorials that you would like to see. Thank you so much again!!!!
