ALICE’S TEA PARTY by Linda Pearson


Today I have created a journal page using the Tea Time in Wonderland mini paper collection designed by Sue Smyth.  I went a little crazy fussy cutting all the images from both cut out pages in this collection.

Tea Time in Wonderland A4 cut apart sheet

Archival Ink Pads in Hickory Smoke and Plum

Blending Tool

Liquid adhesive

Mounting Tape

Madhatter’s hat image accessed from Google Images, enlarged and printed onto A4 paper, 2 copies

White Paint Pen



Cut out the printed hat image then trace onto the Tea Time scrapbook paper.   Cut out scrapbook paper with the traced hat image.

Cut out the hat band section then trace onto pink diamond (reverse side) scrapbook paper.  Cut the band from the cardstock paper.

Add shading to the Madhatter’s hat shape with Hickory Smoke and blending tool.

Add shading to the band with the plum archival ink and blending tool. 

Trace around the Madhatter’s hat shape onto the background cardstock using Alice and Rabbit scrapbook paper.  Add shading to the outer edge of traced outline, blend colour outwards.


Cut the upper edge of the hat brim where the pink band will be placed (see red line above).  Slip the the coloured band onto the hat and secure with small mounting dots (leave the top section of band open so fussy cut elements can be inserted between band and hat. 



Fussy cut the images from the A4 cut apart sheet and the cover cut apart sheet from the pack.


Begin by selecting the cut out images you would like to add, all the images were initially’ spot glued’ into place before adhering the Madhatter’s hat to the background cardstock. 

Tuck 2 or 3 larger tags into the rim of the band add some of the round tags along the edge of the brim of the hat.  Match up cut images with sentiment cards, add to the page.


Continue to sort and add a variety of images to the page, adding lots of sentiment/word tags to break the composition overall.


Add white outline highlights to all the elements using a paint pen.  Distress the outside edge of the page with Plum Archival Ink and blending tool.

Thanks for stopping by and I'm sure you will have so much fun cutting and tucking all these amazing elements into your page too.  



Bye for now from Linda xx
