August Challenge “Do the Planning” – Enter to Win

Canvas Corp Brands August 2016 Challenge

Our 4th Challenge this year is all about Planning! Most people use a calender or personal planner to keep track of their life and planners have become on the fashion again.  With the school year ready to start again this is a hot topic for everyone with kids. And for others  a calender or planner can be the essence of a well functional career. Many of us use a notebook to keep track of  things, to note important tasks or just scribble down ideas that come to our minds during the day (or night for that matter….).  SO be creative! Pimp your calender or make a notebook! To participate all you need to do is link up your project using the linky tool at the bottom of this post.

Challenge Guidelines:

Type of project: Make a calender, altered calendar, agenda or notebook – share how you stay organized, share a page, share the book, share how you put one together.

Colors: You need to use the color shades in the mood board pictured above. White and black are allowed as compliment.

Last day to enter: September 5

Canvas Corp Brands Products: we would love for you to use products from any of our brands – Tattered Angels, Canvas Corp or 7gypsies, but not required to enter to win. If you use any of our products – be sure to mention them when you write about your project. #7gypsies #tatteredangels #canvascorp

Share you project and you could can win this amazing box of goodies:


You can buy pre-made agendas and journals on the market with all the accessories down for you or you can be creative and make your own covers, pages and even the entire book.  Our team has made these samples to using Canvas Corp Brands products.

I created a small creative journal with altered front cover – I am going on a crafting trip in the fall and I made one of these for each of my two friends. I used Tattered Angels High Impact Paint to color the flowers and to color the background which is Canvas Corp Black & Ivory French Script paper.
