Scrappy Home Decor With Canvas Corp

Not only were we visited by Spellbinders this week (read about it here), but we also had a great time with the amazing team from Canvas Corp. These four women loaded up a van with beautiful and inspiring projects and drove from Arkansas to Iowa to share them with us. They combine basic scrapbook products, such as paper, stamps, and rub-ons, with canvas, fabric, and cording for interesting home decor. They demonstrated that scrapbooking doesn’t always have to be about gluing photos to cardstock — it can also be dimensional page layouts and fun wall hangings, along with other crafts using scraps. Check out their one-of-kind projects!

Editor Michelle Rubin and Art Director Deb Berger with Sonya, Christine, Michelle, and Jenn.

Jenn shows us her wedding scrapbook layout — actually two canvases decorated with cardstock and tissue paper flowers.

Another canvas decorated with paper and a black-and-white photo becomes a quick photo frame for Baby.

This canvas becomes a spooky Halloween box with the help of velvet cardstock and corrugated cardboard cardstock (both of which Canvas Corp sells).

A simple paper mache house gets a haunted treatment with patterned paper.

Canvas Corp also sells fabric blanks, such as this pillow (they also sells bags, stockings, and napkins), so consumers can get creative with their decor.

Canvas Corp made this cute banner for us as a gift. It uses their chalkboard paper and triangle fabric shapes hanging from string with clothespins. The other side shows a different design so we can switch out banner designs quickly.

See Canvas Corp’s blog for directions to these projects.
