Creative Space: The Magic of The Wizard of Oz


Hello friends,
I have spent all week working on a mini album!
It's Wizard of Oz themed!




I have always had a special place in my heart for this sweet story and wonderful movie.
I love collecting different copies of the story to see all the different interpretations of Oz.





When I came across this amazing new paper line called, The Magic of Oz by Graphic 45,
 I knew I couldn't wait to get it!




When I flipped through all the lovely patterns of this beautiful book
 I knew right away that I had to make a mini album.
This book measures 6 x 6 1/2.




Every photo mat is yellow cardstock that has been embossed with a brick pattern
 to look like the yellow brick road.




I also purchased a Wizard of Oz stamp set by Crafty Secrets that coordinates perfectly just for this!
It's so sweet and I had fun adding extra tags and pockets in between my pages to showcase some of the stamp designs.




I cut lots of green cardstock swirls and added green glitter touches to add whimsy to almost every page in the book.




I also took a vintage Oz valentine from my collection
 and added it to this library pocket.




The back of the library pocket features the ruby slippers!




The last page of the book reminds us that there is no place like home!




This mini album was so much fun to create and is my favorite project to date!
This album is for sale here in our etsy shop.




Here is a look at the Graphic 45 paper pad.
It is a brand new release so you should be able to find this lovely paper soon!





Here is a look at the Crafty Secrets stamp set.
I am currently working on a few tags using these cute stamps.




Thank you for stopping by our blog today and be sure to
come back tomorrow for our Mad Tea Party post!!!

Wishing you a happy day, Lindsey

This is so darling! I have a friend whose grand daughter loves 'Wizard of Oz'. I have got to tell her to check this out in your etsy shop.

As scary as it can be in some versions, Oz has always been one of my favorite places.
Just this week I was revisiting on YouTube. Isn't the web weird and wonderful?
