Mocha Madness
By Paris Dukes



  1. Create a 5 1/2” x 12” piece of floral paper; tear one long side so the white edge shows. Create a 2” x 12” piece of pink paper; tear one long side so one white edge shows. Layer these together on top of the brown stripe paper and glue.
  2. Mat the photo on pink paper with a 1/4” border. Glue to the left side of the page, with a coffee cup insulator at the bottom left corner.
  3. To make the altered alphabet, bend wire to the shape of the letter “M” adding wooden beads to the ends. Tie a length of leather cord into an “O” shape, knotting at the top. Cut out a “C” letter tile and mount on foam tape. Cut out an embossed tag and add strips of cork into the shape of an “H”. Cut out an “A” alphabet tile and mount with foam tape. Add the letters to the top of the pink paper, using glue dots for the some of the letters. Stamp the words “madness” onto the large embossed tag and add brads to each end. Attach at an angle to the upper right side of the page.
  4. Create a tag out of the pink paper with the Tags Template. Cut a 3” square of the floral paper and tear the top so the white edge shows. Adhere to the bottom of the tag and trim to fit. Add computer journaling on ivory to the tag and tear out, chalking the edges if desired. Punch a hole in the top of the tag and add a piece of fiber. Tuck the ends of the fiber under the “madness” tag and glue down the tag.
  5. Cut out the definitions and chalk the edges. Mat on brown paper with a 1/8” border. Layer together as shown and glue in the lower right corner of the page.

A Tip from Paris:

Three-dimensional embellishments and alphabet tiles make a great altered alphabet page title. Click here to see a close up!
