WOWOWOW!!!! I had a funny feeling!! LOVE this sooo much and adore that page with the ATC cards - amazing! WHOOT HOOT!

I am seeing some great papers with the wicked witch(I hope). I would use these to make halloween mini-albums with the wicked witch of the west as the focal point. can't wait to see the rest of the papers!

I would make several personal layouts about ME. Wizard of Oz came out in 1939. I was born in Sept 1939.....so you guessed it, my name is Judy. So, you see these beautiful papers speak to me.

This paper is beautiful. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

I was hoping it would be the Wizard of Oz. I'm elated. It's one of my childhood favorites and I have fond memories of sitting my children in front of the TV to watch it for their first time. I think I would go for a mini album with lots of secret places, pockets, fold, etc all with appropriate characters popping out! Can't wait!


I can see using this in a Printers Tray and the ages and stages of our children growing up, and of course showing Holidays such as Halloween. I can also see using it on cards and a Halloween mini-book.

Oh loving this!!!

OMG!! Can't wait to get my hands on this paper line I see all kinds of possibilities, Mini-albums, scrap pages, shadow boxes you name it.
Thanks G45 for another great paper line.

OMG I love it I am a huge fan of the wizard of oz and this collection is a must have. love it love it love it, can't wait to see more

When I saw the Poppy Field paper I swooned! WOW! I do have to laugh as 2 of my LEAST favorite movies are Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland....the original books are SO MUCH BETTER! And it seems Graphic45 has been able to capture all that is wonderful about the books! Hats off to them!!!!

Wow what a great reveal. Once the papers make thier way over to England I'll be making a gorgeous mini of the story from start to finish. I can't wait. Love the characters and colours revealed so far and look forward to more reveals this week. Clare, England.

Oh my goodness!!!! Will have to get this. I'm a HUGE HUGE fan of Wizard of Oz as is my DD.

Oh my! Seriously amazing! My friend is from Kansas and I will be making her either a clock or a bird house with these papers for her mantle. Can hardly wait!

The wizard of oz is my favorite childhood movie of all time. I think I would make a shadow box.Graphic 45 never ever disapoints us. You guys rock.

Amazing and gorgeous! My brain is swirling with ideas for using these papers: 1) An altered box to hold my husband's treasured First Edition of The Wizard of Oz; 2) a mixed-media collage piece; 3)an altered frame; 4)many mini albums; 5)etc.

I can already tell that this will be my favorite G45 line ever!!!!!!!!! I adore The Wizard Of Oz and collect different editions. I can't wait to create a layout showing off my collection of Oz books and pair of replica shoes!!!
Thank you!!!

It's always been one of my favorite classic movies. The paper is beautiful! Can't wait to work with it. It will do a wonderful mini album with images from the movie as a memorabilia!

These papers are absolutely outstanding! I love it! I would love to do some cards & mini-albums with this! I could send a Dorothy card to my mom, and let her know that even though I'm far away, "there's no place like home"....EEEEK!!!

Super cool! Can't wait to get my hands on the collection and start creating!

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! I have a grandson who is brave because he started wearing glasses this weekend at 4. When I go places I always want to go home. This is so Freakin" Cool!

Beautiful paper with beautiful possibilities!!!!

These papers are totally stunning!!! I think if I had these in possession now, i will not bear to use them!!! LOL. However, I would really love to make a mini-album about childhood memories. Thanks for the chance to win!!!(:

Love the Movie - LOVE LOVE LOVE the paper line - can't wait to see it all! "There's no place like home" immediately comes to mind - so a Canvas to hange in my home is the first thing I thought of - or possibly a mini album croniciling our home renovation!

The Poppy field makes me think of Remembrance Day, I'd alter a box with it. Last year my kids drew cards for veterans they knew, I think we would have to use it this year!

Wow, love the early sneak! Absolutely beautiful and one of my most favorite stories.....I kind of feel like Dorothy often. Can't wait to get these in my hands!

I think I would first do a mini album todhowcase my oz collection (ok maybe a mini album would be too small) then I'd do an altered art project - maybe try something with beeswax

I've ventured off into mixed media art and love using cool scrapbook paper. I can see some OZ art canvases in my studio in the near future. Love this!

Wow, you've done it again. I'd totally use this for a minialbum and layouts about imagination and fantasy.

I would use these graphics to print on fabric and I would love to make a quilt with them. They are absolutely beautiful. I would also like to make a unique button box for my friend who is obsessed with the Wizard of Oz. My to-do-list would go on and on with this collection!!!!!

I am too excited for this collection! The papers (as always) are fabulous. My first is a layout, because my family dress up as the characters for halloween and next is a mini album. ohhh I can not wait to get this one! TFS

I'd love to see a mini-book using the paper!

YAY!!!!! I was hoping for the Wizard of Oz! I'm already thinking of making a layout with the title, Follow The Yellow Brick Road! This collection is perfect for my little Miss Independent daughter. So excited!!!!!!!!!

"It really was no miracle. What happened was just this. The wind began to switch, the house to pitch. And suddenly the hinges started to unhitch. Just then, the witch, to satisfy an itch, went flying on her broomstick thumbing for a hitch."
So, so fun!

Okay, my guess was WAY off, but this paper is better than I expected. My husband was in our local arts council's production of The Wizard of Oz (he played the palace guard). Now I can FINALLY crop those photos! I plan on making a mini album for him using this paper line. Thanks Graphic 45 for another WONDERFUL line of papers to work with.

I would make an altered box and a mini. This is another amazing paper line. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

Oh my gosh!!! My DD was Dorothy for Halloween!!!! I can't WAIT to get this line!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow I love it! This collection looks like a fun one to make cards, layouts or a mini your right! I think it would be fun to make a shadow box layout for my mother using this paper using a photo and my 3 siblings and myself when we dressed as Oz characters for childhood Holloween costumes.

OMG I neeeed it all

I love it - The Wizard of Oz is one of my favourite Children's books. These papers are fabulous - I'd love to make an altered book with them - how fabulous would it be to open a book and be "in Oz"?!

Lions and Tigers and Bears oh my! This paper line is full of possibilities. My kids love this movie, have dressed up as Dorothy for Halloween etc. Home decor items and mini albums along with some really cute cards are springing to my mind!
