What is WOYWW? Oh my if you haven't visited Julia' s Stamping Ground you are missing a lot... Click the link cause you don't want to stay in the dark any longer...
My work desk....not worth seeing this week but I will share with you what I have been working on this week... It is rather lengthy and photograph intensive but worth seeing I think...Grab a cup of tea/coffee and take a peek!
Presenting the Wizard of Oz Book! Made using Graphic 45 Magic of Oz papers and Stampin' Up! Cardstock. The idea came when I watched a video made my Clare Charvill a couple of months ago using this paper and black mat board and was overwhelmed at how she used the papers and little else to make the book. Clare let the beauty of the papers speak for themselves instead of using a lot of embellishments. My book incorporates some of her ideas and ideas I picked up surfing around the web. For my book I used a ready made chipboard ring binder and did it my way!
|Front of the Wizard of Oz book|
|Page 1 or the inside cover. Magic Of Oz page with 2 4x6" photo mats in a pocket|
|Front of half-pg 1.5. Corner Pocket with a tag. The back is adorned with cards.|
|back of half pg 1.5|
|page 2 Two 2x3" mats and a pocket that holds a 5x7" mat or two. I only show one mat in this picture.|
|Page 3. Dorothy page with OZ tag in a pocket made using the 6x6 square .|
|Page 4 has a window made using the Tim Holtz cabinet die and opens to a 3.5x4" photo mat|
|Page 4 with the cabinet window open. I retro fit it with a magnet to keep it closed.|
|Pg 5 the Friendly Lion Pages Fancy cut the lion out and glued only the fee and far left side of the body down to make a tag pocket. Clare Charvill does a lot of fancy cutting....|
|Page 6 Photomat pocket that holds a photomat|
|Pages 7.5 front and back. Half pages again... Made using an 8 1/2x 11" piece of black cardstock folded in half and decorated with the Magic of Oz papers.|
|Page 10 is a pocket mat to hold the 4x6" mats in place. I put 3 pockets on this half page to hold two different size tags.|
|Page 11 is the Wicked Witch page. I made a pocket to hold mats then a corner pocket that holds a couple of tags.|
|Page 12 the Wicked block is one of the four that makes up the 12x12 page. I love these blocks if you can't tell. I loved the way Clare and others were using belly bands so I made up a Wcked belly band to hold a tag book.|
|Page 13 What better way to follow the Wicked page then with the Poisonous Poppy page. It is a photo window acting as a mat! I had fun making this page cause I love the poppies!|
|The open picture window so you can see the tag pocket and I removed the mats so you could see the book excerpt and the flying monkeys. I also left it so you could put a picture on the mat behind the tags and on the doors if you would like to!|
|Page 14 and the back cover is the balloon rising from the Emerald City! Whew all done..almost! This is what I am calling a flip page. You can see the mat on the left side and when you flip it open you get this...|
|The mat on the left will hold an 5x7" photo and under the belly band on the right is 4 4/6" mats.|
|On this belly band I made a scalloped band then cut a strip of stamps from the paper. Did some finish work and called it done....|
|This is the outside cover. I loved the poppies but didn't have anymore paper so I cut up the paper packet back and used that. Probably more sturdy then the paper as it is a card stock backing. I glued a picture of the crew on and now I am done.|
I am relatively tied up until Sunday so I probably won't be able to post or visit blogs until then but I am already looking forward to it. Have a great week!
