Design Team Tea Party Hop!

Woooohooo…ย  Welcome to day number 2 of the fun tea party weekend!!

Today my fabulous team are sharing a bunch of inspiration with you PLUS I’ve invited a few guests to join the fun too!!

There’s a bunch of prizes of course and so as you hop along write down the ‘hidden words’ you find plus leave a little bit of love too! All the details on what you can win are at the end!!

I hope you have fun along the way!

I have HEAPS of cards to share with you because I had this ‘bright’ idea that I wanted to have a card to share for every image in the collection. That was a great idea until TODAY when I had barely any sleep and ELEVEN images to turn into cards!!ย  hahaaย  yeah I am cursing at myself just a little around about NOW! ๐Ÿ™‚ So please forgive me that some of the cards are a little simple.

OK let’s begin!

Nice simple layout! I love the colours of Chesire Cat in this image

From memory they are
BV17, BV13 & B60 & RV29, RV23 & RV21


This image is Alice’s Adventure

I just love the maze and the cliff Alice is standing on…


This is a nice simple one where I mounted the Whimsical White Rabbit and then cut out the Cup Cakes Stand and popped it up with some mounting foam. It turned out better than I expected. ๐Ÿ˜€


Here’s a fun steampunk one using the hilarious ย Humpty Tweedles

I used some ‘manly’ papers – Craftsman / Prima – and added some corrugated board, cogs and tears and then those little copper things are actually eyelets but instead of punching through the paper I decided to glue them on upside down. Something different I guess! hehe (Amazing what you shrug your shoulders at when you are in a hurry!!)


Next up we have The Queen of Hearts & inside I popped up her friend the Pink Flamingo

Nice and simple but I like it! ๐Ÿ˜€



Finally I had fun making a TEA PARTY!!

I fussy cut The Tea Party, Late Rabbit & Mad Hatterand mounted them onto the Mushroom Forest background.


The Mad Hatter is on one of those WOBBLES!! It’s perfectly FUN! hehe
Thanks Barbara!! xoxo


So there you have it…. 11 images made into cards in just a few hours.
Now I’m about ready to collapse!

Thank you so much everyone for joining the hop yesterday with my guests. They are all feeling on top of the moon and I have you to help thank for that.

I hope you enjoy HOP No:2 today!

Pop on over to my gorgeous guest Melanie
and don’t forget to hunt for those hidden words!
BUT they might not be on every blog post (I ran out of words!! hehee)

Big Squeezes Everyone!

Zoe xoxoxox

oh look…. Your first hidden word!!ย  giggles…
