Mermaids AND Alice in Wonderland!

I’m taking Design Team Member Kristin Batsel’s lead… she mixed up the July and August kit themes in her fab Mermaid ATC Mailer project. So I’m mixing Alice in Wonderland with mermaids!

Let’s start with some text from Kristin’s blog post:

Alpha Stamps just came out with a fun new ATC mailer, and because we’re still in the heat of summer, I decided a mermaid theme would be appropriate. I used some great beachy papers from the Sea-Maiden 6×6 Paper Pad. I love that these papers include one of my favorite color combinations: turquoise and red! In the collection, there’s a great paper that looks like weathered painted boards. I used that on the outside of the mailer.

And Kristin used images from the new Nature’s Underwater Fairyland Collage Sheet throughout! I just hadn’t finished with mid-century Florida images (after Florida & Flamingo Postcards and Vintage Florida Souvenirs last month)!

Kristin also mixed in images from Mermaid Mash-ups and Mermaid Garden #3 Collage Sheets. Plus I like the large mermaid holding one of the 3D Patina Starfish Charms.

Read more in Kristin’s blog post (including tips for keeping the slots for inserting an ATC, BUT hiding them on the outside of the finished mailer). And see her supply list here.
