Workshop on the Go – Wonderland Layouts

I actually finished my sample pages BEFORE our monthly workshop on Sunday! I LOVE these papers, even though we’ve had no measurable snow to mention here in Southern Indiana, but I’m sure it’s coming.
We’ll be creating 3, 2-page layouts using the gorgeous Wonderland Level 2 Papers and coordinating stamps and accessories.
Here’s the featured layout from the WOTG Brochure:
Wonderland Featured Layout I did modify the layout just a tad. Instead of the rounded tabs, I used half-scallops.
The piece of paper sticking on the left page is actually a piece off of my glue dots roll. I forgot about sliding a picture under the chocolate dot ribbon and put adhesive on the entire length of the paper :( Thankfully, I had a scrap piece of the wax paper from my glue dots to save me having to pull it up later to add a picture.
Here’s a couple of close ups of the details:

Here’s the second layout we will be doing:
Wonderland Magic Layout This layout is from Magic – Secret. Again, I modified it slightly from the layout shown in the WOTG brochure. Instead of using the coffee cups from the stamp set, I added in a couple of Top Coats Icing Overlays (now sold out).
I always have a selection of stamps, and since this group usually orders the My Stickease to go with the papers, there are several options for personalizing your layouts.

The third layout we will be doing is from Imagine – Powerful Trio. This layout is also featured in the Autumn/Winter Idea Book (pg. 58).
Wonderland Imagine Layout Again, I modified it slightly from the one shown in the Idea Book, but only to work with what papers were left after creating the first two layouts from the WOTG Guide. There is NO stamping on this layout! I did use Grey Flannel and Twilight inks to sponge the edges of various papers and stickease.  I also added in a couple of the Top Coats Icing Overlays.
Here are some close ups of the detail:
Wonderland Imagine Layout Close Up As there was no Chocolate cardstock left, I used Grey Flannel under the My Stickease snowflakes. I inked the edges in Twilight. The pieces are also cut with our Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge. The large petal is cut at 2 1/4” with Shift + <Flower7> (pg. 39), the small snowflake is cut at 1 1/2” with <Circle3> (pg. 41). I cut one of the 4x6 Top Coats Icing Overlays apart to create the border across the top of the left page. There is a slight overlap to make the patterns match up. To adhere them, I slid them under the Grey Flannel Snowflake paper. This allows them to lift up to slide an 8x10 photo in and have a beautiful border on your photo.
Wonderland Imagine Layout Close Up 2 On the right page, I added a small Top Coats Icing Overlay to the center of the snowflake stickease. I also inked the edges of the stickease snowflakes, quote, and journal circle. The snowflakes and quote are popped up with 3D Foam Tape. I used the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge to cut the photo mats. The two outside mats are cut at 3 1/2” with <Square5> (pg. 63) and the middle mat is cut at 3 1/2” with <Square4> (pg. 53).
