My Creative Space and Giveaway!



Hello friends!
This week I was inspired by Disney's Alice in Wonderland!
 So my newest altered composition notebook theme is a Happy Un-Birthday book.




I used pages from a Big Golden Book to cover both the front and back covers from the infamous mad tea party pages! I dyed seam binding to create a vintage looking bow.  I absolutely love this Vintage Pearl Trinket Pins by Maya Road. This was my last one and I can't find them anywhere to buy more.





The first page features these great Alice stamps that are by Crafty Secrets.
Upon the first line it says: Greetings from Wonderland.




The inside cover has been decorated as well and features this cute decorative kraft envelope for storing ephemera.




On the back cover the Mad Hatter and the March Hare
 are drinking their tea!





This journal is now available here in our etsy shop!

Giveaway time!!!!
We are giving this set of cute and colorful Easter paper and embellishments!
This giveaway includes 7 sheets of coordinating paper, matching tags, a hand stamped large tag, a decorative kraft envelope and dyed seam binding!






Just leave a comment on this post and we will randomly draw a winner on Sunday, April 10.

Wishing you happiness, Lindsey

Lindsey, you inspire me so much.

Seriously. I finally found the perfect white paint pen to make "stitches" like you do, because I don't sew. Can't tread a bobbin to save my life.

Thank you for this blog, all the little cards, and the tutorials! I love me some tutorials...even if a project seems easy, seeing it broken down into parts makes it easier to apply to any number of project ideas.

Have a great day and happy Easter!

You girls are so cheerful! I stop into your little world here every single morning. Almost always around 9:10, I ready my "news" in a certain order, so that happens to be Two Crazy Crafters time slot!

I would be honored if I was fortunate enough to win your Easter pack giveaway. I promise to use it with love and care...and fun...with a little bit of crazy.

Thank you!

I love it, I also love the bunny postcard on the previous post. Have a great week-end...m..

Sarita Boyette said...

Love things made from Golden book images! This is so pretty. Could you make the pins yourself by getting corsage pins with "pearls" on the end, and adding other beads to the pin? You could add a dab of glue to the pin to secure the beads.
Love your giveaway idea, too! xoxo
