Hey, all you crafters out there that participated in the
Alice tag book swap, I have made some new ones.
If you are interested in swapping a couple more tags,
let me know I have 3 pairs to swap. I will be sending
two new ones to Karla over at karlascottage.typepad.com
for her very hard work in putting together these wonderful
little tag books. She made about 8o covers and put at
least that many together, then mailed them out to everyone.
She is a jewel.
I just got kind of caught up in it all and just wanted to make
more tags for my own book. I happen to have a ver very old
Alice in wonderland book that was my mother's when she was
a young girl.
It is so worn, with an insect hole in the back that bore right into
many pages. I love how differently it is illustrated. (true victorian
fashion) with the colors all being Lavender and violet hues.
The other little circles come from a sheet I bought digitally from
Petite Paperie in their Etsy shop. They are wonderful, so I had
to do something with them as well.
The bottom picture is the Tag book I recieved from
Karla and I have added the extra tags that I made.
If you are interested in swapping two more, just let me know
via a comment here. You can also visit my other creative blog, by clicking
on the button at the top. I am posting this in both places.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
