Grapic 45 The Magic of Oz Altered Book

 Hello everyone...I'm enjoying my last day of summer vacay relaxing at home with my son and working on some projects.  Today Mcauley assisted me in creating my first video for youtube.  We are a work in progress and promise to get better...but not bad for beginners...LOL!
I am so excited to share one of the projects I've been working on, this altered book with The Magic of Oz papers by Graphic 45.  I am going to be instructing an inspiration class for this book.  The store I work and instruct at is called Scraps and is located in Joplin, MO.  In light of the horrific tornado that struck Joplin this past spring we thought it would be appropriate to host a class for people to create a journal to remember their experiences and these papers were a perfect for such a book.
This is a close up of my poppies...created with my Serenade cart...the butterfly cut....using 2 butterflies...cut one in half the other in fourths....attach layers to a piece of cardstock cut into a circle...use the MS cornflower punch and some bling to create the center...add leaves from A Child's Year and some fiber.

  1. I really, really enjoyed your altered book video!! It is so gorgeous, and what a wonderful idea to be offering this as a way to help people who have been traumatized by the destruction of the tornado, to aid in healing! So much work you have put into this book!! Beautiful and inspirational!
