'Tea Time Notes' for Scrappingville

Sweet friends,
Is it tea time yet?. I've got a Tea Time Notes to share here today :). I made this as my second DT project for Scrappingville.  



It is a simple chocolate brown chipboard mini album, which I filled up with various tea time quotes I found on Pinterest.  I always create mini albums from scratch or making altered mini albums, so making this one needs some adjusting to. It is relatively easy, as all I need was just notes and lots of embellishment :).

I wrote all the quotes in brown watercolor, sharpies and black pigment ink. I love how some of the notes look like they were written with tea dye :). 

I added some hidden notes from Alice In Wonderland just for fun. Oh, and I happened to have a little tea cup charm which is perfect for this mini album. See it? :).


I had so much fun making this. I REALLY need cupcakes now!. So, I hope you like the album :).

I'm will be teaching this project along with the 'Dream Journal' for September classes at Scrappingville. Do check our website for more detail. Until next, Hugs.

Supplies : 
Pattern papers from Crate Paper Portrait Collection, GCD Studios Storybook, Basic Grey Paper Cottage; Stickers - Basic Grey Clipping; Hambly Screen Print Climbing Vines; Collection Elements Portrait Girls; Basic Grey Chocolate chipboard album.

  8. oohhh how sweet this, just lovely and creative!! I'm a big tea drinker so this would be perfect for me. I never knew there was "TEA" quotes out there, so fun to read them. I liked the last one on the left and the KEEP CALM one the best, sooooo cute!!

    All the colors and layers and textures are just wonderful, you really go all out on your mini albums!! Now I really wish to live closer so I could take this class.

    Great job on writing with paint, looks great!!


    On the wrap post below, hahaha that is sooooo not me. I am horrible at wrapping gifts. My mom is the perfect wrapper and it must have skipped right over me. Can't wait to see what you did for it!!
    Enjoy your day! HUGS!
