The Magic of Oz is In...

I forsee a reorder on the horizon.... I LOVE this new line from Graphic 45!!!  This time we challenged our design team to create Wizard of Oz themed projects featuring this new line, and I gotta say, I don't think this one was very tough!  LOL!

 I (Danielle a.k.a. FitterTwit) used the new Magic of Oz papers and chipboard tags from Graphic 45 along with Copic markers and Bazzill cardstock to create this project.  I also used some twine that I had on hand to make that tag pop a little.  It was a nice touch that seems perfect for the "woodsy" feel of this one.  I was torn when I completed it.... wasn't sure if  I wanted this to be the start of a layout, a wall hanging or a greeting card.... hahahahahahaha!

 Gayl used the Graphic 45 Magic of Oz papers along with the chipboard tags and SEI's White Elegance line to create this really fun and quite layered butterfly bloom project.  That Martha Stewart butterfly punch sure does come in handy!!!

 Marijo used the Graphic 45 Magic of Oz papers along with more chipboard tags (yes.... we love those tags!!!) with miscellaneous flowers and embellishments to create this wonderful frame.  I'm tellin you... I'm NUTS for this line!!!

Finally is Pam's WONDERFUL layout!  Pam used these AWESOME Graphic 45 papers to highlight the love of a girl and her puppies.  Sooooo Wizard of Oz-like!  Wouldn't you say???

 She used her Sizzix Big Shot with the new Donna Salazar Spellbinders Carnation dies (stay tuned for yet ANOTHER visit from our friend Donna Salazar coming in August) with TONS of goodies to make this sparkle and shine.  From Shimmerz and SmoochSpritz to chalk inks and alcohol inks, Pam went to town making the perfect embellishments for this masterpiece!!!

Pam had a blast showcasing her new journaling talent encorporating stamping and printing to tell such a wonderfully heart-warming story.  FANTASTIC job Pam!!!

Welp, that's it for this week's design fun.  The design team will be taking a short break to observe the upcoming Fourth of July holiday, but will be back soon for more crafty inspiration.  Have a safe and fun holiday and I hope we've inspired you to also enjoy some crafty-goodness!!!
