Magic of Oz Mini Album

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.

Wishing you a happy day, Lindsey

Happy Days Mini Album

Hello friends!
I just can't get enough of this cute paper!
It's October Afternoon's 5 and Dime line.
It's so retro and vintage and oh so me!

I also mixed in October Afternoon's Modern Homemaker paper line, too.
 That's one of my favorite things about OA,
that you can mix and match patterns together using all their lines.

I also added in a few die cuts from Crate Paper's Emma's Shoppe line,
such as the cute little girl in the photo below.

I several printed images from my own personal card stash using heavy cardstock.

This sweet vintage girl below is from a sewing pattern.

I made this book by cutting chipboard to 6x6 and then using my Cinch binding machine
to punch the holes and bind the wire.

Making mini albums are such a satisfying project.
 It took me a couple days to complete and they make great gifts.

This mini album is for sale here in our etsy shop.

Wishing you a lovely Friday, Lindsey

Craft Projects

Hello friends!
At Michael's craft store you can find 8 x 8 canvases. When they were on sale a couple weeks ago, I picked one up to alter.

I enjoyed working with this size! I used October Afternoon's 5 and Dime line to create my art piece.

I first painted around the edges with pink paint
and then distressed the edges of the paper so the pink would show around the sides.

I'm also still playing with Cosmo Cricket's Odds and Ends paper line.
I created a new journal using this lovely line. A mini rose and blue polka dot pattern is one of my favorites from the line.

The inside cover also features a fun sampler pattern paper.

You can find these items listed here in our etsy shop.

Have a great Friday, Lindsey

Capture The Moment

Hello friends!
Yep, I made another mini canvas!
I couldn't resist making more of these sweet little mini's!

For this one I used Cosmo Cricket's new Odds and Ends line.
I added dyed seam binding using Antique Linen Distress Ink.
This canvas is listed here in my etsy shop.

This fun little tag, I made a couple of weeks ago.
I used a sweet little chipboard squirrel from Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness line.

Wishing you all a lovely day, Lindsey
