Wizard Paper Stacks

Stacks of ancient documents and spell pages, collected by witches and wizards. Stacked in a corner or piled on a desk alongside some antediluvian maps of fantasy places only wizards can visit.

I began by cutting out my maps from my Antique Maps collage sheet (coming soon at Alpha Stamps).

I tinted the back with my instant coffee mixture so that any back that does show through, isn't a stark white. I do this before I cut out just to make life easier.

Then I cut out my strips of old photos (also available at Alpha Stamps coming soon!) and picked out a couple that looked especially wizard and witch-like.

I used my stamp pads to tint the edges of my maps and photos before adding them to the scenes.

And then started building up mini papers and adding my own spin before it all started coming together for me. Check out the finished product below!

Tiny Little Books

Tiny Little Books

I've been a busy little bee working studiously away making teeny tiny 1" little books! Lots of little covers to pick from, in various themes. I even came up with a tutorial to show you how to make openable books for yourself in video form (check the end of the blog post)

Grimm's Fairy Tales themed books.

With a whole lot of different covers, some simple and some a lot more complex.

And each one has a different thickness and is one inch high and can be made into an openable book.

There's also a more plain set of books, which I really love because you can sneak them easily into so many scenes!

I've snuck some fancier ones in there, too, though.

There's 45 books per sheet, which gives you tons of books to work with.

And now you can learn how to use book cover sheets to make your own miniature openable books with this little tutorial! Check it out here:
