Canvas House mini book...

Hello friends!
I have a new project for you....well-sort of new. I made this project last year for the Inspired event. I taught this as a Prima class. I did a live show on Live with Prima recently, and re-made the book using newer Prima products. Everyone was so sweet and really seemed to enjoy the class-I am so happy for that! And Kristina at yourmemorieshere.com made it into a kit.

You can se the kit here and there is only 1 left!

I decided to post some pics of the book itself, so you can see how each page turned out. I can't wait to add photos to it! I did add more after the class was finished. I had some leftovers and decided to use them up.

Here is the cover: Flowers and embellishments added with lace. I sprayed the entire book with Wheatfields Glimmer Mist to give an aged look....I also tied a sweet little bird cage from Marions Trinket line with Prima. I used some twine to tie it onto the lace bow. I love seeing other embellishments peeking out from other pages too..

I used a large crocheted flower from the Love Notes-Botanical flower pack. They are going to be the perfect back drop for my photos. I also added Cute As A Button crocheted centers to some of the flowers throughout the book...they are super fun to use..

Another large crocheted flower on this page. All of the pages where made from Prima packaging-it's too pretty to not use! I save them for a project such as this...



Rub ons and paper pieces were also used on the book pages for added interest and layering. I love to layer! And the leaves really finish off the flower clusters perfectly...


I also used Cottage Blossoms and Innoscence flowers to add to the Love Note flowers. They compliment the book perfectly without over powering the pages or overall look...



If you want to see how the book was made, you can see the recorded version of the class right here:
I hope it inspires you to create something of your own!
I will be back soon with more news and projects to share!
Thanks for stopping by...
xoxo Cari
