Paper Issues New Theme Is Sponsored By Canvas Corp!!

Paper Issues is having a mini blog hop for the new theme "Burlap" and it is sponsored by the Fabulous Canvas Corp!!!  I so love working with Canvas Corp products.  Oh did I mention there is a PRIZE involved? An amazing package of Canvas Corp products!!!

I received a box full of Canvas Corp goodness and this is what I created, A canvas mini album.  In Calgary we will be celebrating The Calgary Stampede's 100 year anniversary this year.   So this adorable mini is the perfect album for all of my Stampede photos!


The album base is made of Canvas Corps 12x12 canvas.  I have sprayed it with Tattered Angels and Stamped it with my favorite Chicken wire stamp. I inked Pink Paislee's wooden letters to give them that western feel.  The canvas star is stamped and stitched, which I LOVE by the way!!  And the thick twine wound around like rope is one of my favorite details on the cover!


I used Canvas Corp 12x12 kraft tissue paper to create the banner and the ruffle on the bag.  This tissue is great to stamp on.


Cute little clothes pins hold this tissue paper banner.  The nail heads hold down the burlap and give this page a great western feel.  I used a brown paper bag to create a pocket for journaling.  I love the stamped tissue ruffle and the seam binding ribbon.


Basic stitching adds to the theme here.


An adorable burlap pocket to house all of those odds and ends or some journaling.


And of course you know how much I LOVE banners!  This banner is especially cute with the tissue ruffle across the top!
