Inspiration and Ideas:
The beloved classic, Alice in Wonderland, inspires imagination and whimsy! This layout could be used for so many different themes!
- Tea party
- Themed birthday/kids party
- Queen of Hearts – just add coordinating embellishments!
- Mad Hatter – chaos, craziness, over the top fun
- Cheshire cat – caught being silly, goofy, smiling, vanishing, medicated 😉 (Have you seen the after the dentist videos? LOL!!!)
- Shrink / Grow
- It’s Always Tea Time
- It’s Always
- Fairie Gardens – creating, enjoying, page of them
- Croquet – do people still play this game?
- Girls/Guys Night Out – (Mad Hatter or Maybe the Queen – Off with their head!)
- “Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast” – Accomplishment
- “Begin at the beginning,” the King said, very gravely, “and go on till you come to the end; then stop.” – Accomplishment, struggle, race, competition, starting out, beginning something, first day of…
- “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” – crawling, learning to walk, antics, drunkenness, travel, sightseeing
- “But it’s no use now,” thought poor Alice, “to pretend to be two people! Why there’s hardly enough of me left to make one respectable person!” – weight loss, after birth with baby
- Curiouser and curiouser!” Curiosity, searching, travel, experimenting, gift opening
- When I used to read fairy tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one!” – wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, party, sweet 16, surprise party, beautiful garden
Supplies for Alice In Wonderland Layout:
- 2 pieces 12 x 12 cardstock for the background (red was used in this layout)
- 1 sheet 12 x 12 yellow cardstock
- 1 pattern paper 12 x 12 (pastel pattern paper with larger dots in video)
- 2 sheets coordinating pattern paper (pastel with smaller dots in video )
Directions for Creating this Alice in Wonderland Layout:
Using your tear ruler (ruler with jagged edges for tearing paper – see images at the end of this post), tear one strip of the pattern paper with larger dots to 4″ wide and the length of the paper (4×12″).
Using your straight trimmer and the remainder of the paper, cut a straight edge 4″ behind the torn edge to create a second border piece.
Do the same with the yellow, except you want it to be 2.75″ – you’ll need two of these
Tear a border 1.5″ and using your straight trimmer create a second one.
Adhere the large piece down first, close to the left edge of your border, but with some of the background paper showing through. Now adhere the middle piece to the middle of that piece. Do the same with the smallest piece. You should have a three-tiered border like shown in the video. Do the same for the other side.
Cut your photo matte from the yellow left over. Make them 6.5X4.5″
Cut 4.25 x 6.25 from the small dotted paper
Adhere the small dotted paper to the center of the yellow paper
From the second piece of coordinating paper cut two mattes 4.5×6.5 and using your ink, run the pad gently along the edges.
Apply your stickers and title. Add your photos. Don’t forget to journal!
