Next we have this sweet and beautiful layout by Jane Tregenza. This LO is another example of a great Fall/Halloween craft. Jane's classic style looks absolutely flawless in this great LO. Here is what she had to say about the inspiration for this lovely work of art. 

"The Magic of Oz Collection is wonderful. It  works so well on all levels, whether it’s layouts or mini projects.  This time I used it for a page on my son. As soon as I saw the Scatterbrained Scarecrow I wanted to use it on a layout. I had some photos of Josh taken when he was 12 years old. He decided to have a veggie garden, so he spent the day digging up a patch of our back yard. By the end of the day he was over it. It took Malcolm one whole Saturday morning to fill it all in. I used a sheet of Yellow Brick Road for the base of my layout mounted on black cardstock. I cut a frame from Domestic Goddess- Happy Homemaker. I added black brads in the middle of each flower on the border  and worked the rest of my page with the frame. I cut the scarecrow images from Scatterbrained Scarecrow and used foam tape to build them up. I cut the pipe frame as well. The round scarecrow piece came from an 8x8 Magic of Oz pad as the image on the 12x12 paper was too large. I added another square in middle of my layout mated with black bazzill and photos. To finish my page I added corners and a title from Imaginarium Designs. The title was inked with a mixture of inks to get the right colour and sprayed with Iridescent spray to give it a shimmer. I even managed to do some journaling as well!" -Jane Tregenza

Here is another amazing Magic of Oz layout by Jane Tregenza. It combines a timeless style with a heartwarming sentiment. It's super inspiring and simply beautiful. Here is what Jane had to say about her stunning LO.

"This year my three daughters had a trip of a life time. Beth has promised Anna a trip overseas for years. Anna found a website that does Harry Potter tours of England and Scotland. She really wanted to do the tour, so Beth offered to take her, Anna asked if Kate wanted to come with them and of course she was delighted! They did England and Scotland for 15 days, spent one day in Paris and four days in USA doing Harry Potter world and some of the theme Parks in Orlando.  They had an amazing time together but I was so glad to see them home. So when it came time to do a layout with a photo taken at the airport before they left, the magic of Oz collection was my first choice. I love this new collection from Graphic 45. It is so versatile and can be used for any occasion. The papers work so well together and the theme of the balloon for travelling was great. The Poppy fields paper is one of my favourites and had to be added.  I cut borders from the wicked print paper and Emerald City. I made a banner, covered them with paper and  put Domestic Goddess alphabets with epoxy dots on top. I used a chipboard clock, which I inked and sprayed with Iridescent spray. I added a cut out compass from the back of the Wicked Print paper. On top of it I put a chipboard compass from Imaginarium Designs and added a chipboard Graphic 45 compass from chipboard tags 1. On top of that is a compass which actually works.  I used it to list some of the places they visited.  I love Poppy fields so I cut lots of the flowers and layered them with foam tape on top of a picket fence. The Emerald city paper gave me the man in the balloon which I cut out and used as a journaling piece. All I needed to add was some chipboard travel words sprayed black to finish my page. Once again Diane and Graphic 45 have come up with another wonderful collection that is perfect for many different projects." -Jane Tregenza

Thanks for the inspiration!

love these projects

Beautiful card and layout!! That OZ collection is so versatile!!! It just fits so many creative ideas!! My latest idea for the fabrics is a phone case. Communique fabric is a great choice!! Just a little slip pouch with a flower on front. I can't wait to get some of that fabric!!!

Great projects!! These gals are surely creative.

BEAUTIFUL projects- I esp. love the colors and layout of the Bon Voyage page... though the Country Boy journaling is priceless. :)

Love those poppies on that layout! The prints are gorgeous...and I am thinking now about a few pillows and a wreath...all matching..it would be fabulous!

What a great card and nice layouts. I look forward to the great projects your design team creates. Your new fabric line is beautiful. You can use the fabric on cards, altered books, pillows, aprons, book covers (I like to read my books inside a book cover). So many possibilities. Thank you, thank you!

These are all so beautiful! I love how creative everyone is with this Magic of Oz line! I am so in love with these papers and all the project people are coming up with! Keep em coming!

The LOs and the card are all so pretty! I love the gingham strip on the card to match Dorothy's dress and the fun embellies on the LOs. So many great details in each one.
Thanks for sharing! :)

All beautiful projects. wonderful any occassion papers, thank you for sharing.

All the M.o.O. papers are so amazing! THanks for sharing!

Wonderful layouts!

Oh my gosh...I just Love Graphic 45...the layouts and the card are too adorable...love this site and all the projects to view. Keeps me inspired.

WOW!!!!! I love love looooovvveeee these pages!!!!!! I have been making everything but scrapbook pages but I am going to get back to my roots!!! TFS!!!


OMG these ladies are talented!!!! Love the distressed look to the card, and the detail work in these LO's is so inspiring!

Just beautiful and inspirational...but, I don't understand the epoxy letters spelling out Australia...?

with the wilmington collection, i would make tote bags to give to some special people.

I am continually amazed at how adaptive the Oz series is and how easily it suits itself to a variety of mediums. The examples you display truly are an inspiration!!!

I would love to make something in memory of my Mom with your fabrics. She was a great seamstress and would have loved your new product.

I would love to make some cards using your fabrics. I think that would work out perfectly. Maybe just using them as strips across the card, or cut out flowers or stars. I'd for sure come up with something.

beautiful work. Such talent.

Fantastic projects as usual. Love them all
