a mini album...and a Canvas Corp giveaway...NOW CLOSED

Remember last Thursday when I mentioned the amazing giveaway I had lined up for today? Well, it's here...yay!

Canvas Corp is giving away a HUGE...and I mean HUGE variety of their amazing paper and canvas goods to one lucky M{s}G winner! Oh, and remember when I told you that Canvas Corp had acquired 7Gypsies and Tattered Angels? Oh yeah...there are some things from those companies in there, too...woo hoo!

But before I show you what is included in this giant box o' goodies...I want to share a little mini scrapbook album I'm making with Canvas Corp/Tattered Angels/7Gypsies products...

I just recently discovered Instagram (don't laugh...I knew about it, it just wasn't available on Android until a few weeks ago...)...and I am IN LOVE. What a super-fun way to take and share photos. This entire little album is full of Instagram photos I've been taking.


Canvas Corp has a whole series of brightly-colored beautiful chevron papers available...gorgeous. I cut out the middle of the "o" in LOVE so that you can see the page below this one through the letter.



I used one of the little canvas stars as a background for the Instagram logo...I think it gives the page just the right amount of dimension...


Canvas Corp carries a line of Tissue Stock in a variety of natural colors that is just amazing.

The Tissue Stock is just like tissue paper, only it's a little more sturdy, a little thicker and a whole lot easier to cut and work with than regular tissue paper. The above page is made from a cut sheet of Tissue Stock, a Tattered Angels misting mask, and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Key Lime Pie...oh my gosh, how I love that stuff...then I just covered the edges with different deco tape.




On this page I used the Tissue Stock again...I cut out a small square and placed more of the chevron paper on top of some of the Canvas Corp polka dot paper...then I used more Glimmer Mist on the little half-circles on the sides...


I love love love to use the sewing machine on my scrapbook pages...I think just a random line of stitching can really add to a page...and I love leaving the strings attached...it just looks so cool to me.


OK, seriously, isn't that chevron paper THE best?


I love how the muted colors of the 7Gypsies deco tape and embellishments from their Conservatory Collection stand against the stark black and white of the paper...so cool...

And finally, my favorite page so far...


I combined 2 different colors of the chevron paper and cut out a little flag banner out of Canvas Corp's Cork Stock...that's right, I said Cork Stock...adhesive cork paper...how awesome is that?



Oh, how I love that little boy wearing my big boots...

OK, OK, enough of that...I have about 20 more pages to show, but I'll spare you...for now.

Now...the moment you've all been waiting for...just check out this prize...

Oh. yeah.
Every. single. thing. you need to make your own mini-album...and then some. And then some more. And even more after that.

And all of those tags you see up there? Those are absolutely the perfect sizes and shapes to make banners and gift tags. Really...so easy...you just take a length of cord, grab some of the canvas tags and attach them to the cord with the mini-clothespins...how simple (not to mention darling) is that?


...see the little banner I made last year with those very same things?

Just enter using the Rafflecopter thingy below...entries must be received by Sunday, May 6 at midnight eastern, and the winner will be announced Monday morning, May 7.
