Welcome to Wonderland!

Today, I want to show you a couple layouts I made using the Wonderland papers. I just love the colors of this paper. Blue has always been my favorite color. The blue and brown combination for winter papers is somewhat suprising but it works.

My first layout is from last January. If you live near St. Louis, you may remember that last year was a record setter for snow days from school. (Especially for a the district my daughter attends). One week school was canceled on Monday, and Tuesday, and ... Although the streets near our house were cleared early in the week, some of the rural roads remained trecherous for the buses.

I had planned to be off work on Friday so I told my daughter that is she was still off school on Friday we'd do something together. After a week of being cooped up indoors, she choose ice skating. We bundled up and headed to Steinberg Ice Rink in Forest Park. Neither of us are great skaters, but we had fun trying. It felt so good to be outside!



Even though I deviated from the Workshop On The Go pattern somewhat to accomodate my pictures, I did use several techniques including the paper "ribbon" and putting sparkles in the foundry pin head shown below.

This one-page summer layout also uses paper from the Wonderland pack.


Three of the Background and Texture designs have snowflakes, but the other three do not which makes them very versatile. Here's a shot of all of the papers in the packet.


This is the paper we will be using for the next scrapbooking night on Friday, January 13 from 6:30 - 11:30

To attend you must preorder either the Wonderland Workshop On The Go ($29.95) or the Wonderland Level 2 Paper Packet ($9.95). The Workshop On The Go includes the Level 2 paper packet, two extra pieces of cardstock, coordinating stamp set,accessories, and instructional booklet for the layout pictured below.


I used some of the techniques for my layouts, but modified them somewhat for the number and size of pictures I wanted to include. I can help you do the same. So mark your calendar, gather up a few winter pictures and send me an email to sign up.

Deadline for registration is January 4. Please drop me an email if you have any questions.

Can't make it on January 13? You can still order and complete the workshop remotely.
