Fairies Gather Here Handmade Denim Book

“Don’t you know that everybody’s got a Fairyland of their own?”
― P.L. Travers, Mary Poppins
Who doesn’t love fairies? I know we all do and so does CCB Crew Member Christine Santos of Christine’s Scrap Shack. She created the most amazing fairy book made with a 7gypsies 5″x7″ Dungaree Journal and other fun supplies from our list of brands. Each page was filled with fairy photos of her girls making her album that much more special….So fairy fantabu-lous!!!!

Precious memories call for a special album & Canvas Corp have an array of books to choose from. The album I’m sharing with you today shines on little girls having fun as fairies, and what better way them than with a spring denim & lace album. What could be better than fairies, denim & lace?

The front of the book is decorated with lots of denim and goodies, here are some details you will find on the cover.

A strip cut from the Fabric Denim Sheet is secured in an old jumper buckle.

7 Gypsies Lace Trimmings are a nice touch, use them as it is or add color to add your own personal touch.
fairy step 2
Cut out from the 7gypsies papers is a great focal point for the Fairies Gather Here Cover.  The printed canvas sheet from the Spring Showers Paper Pad is added behind the front denim cover for softness & imagery.

Canvas Corp Printed Fabric and Burlap Sheets are great for layering & faming photos & they come in a variety of colors and designs.  The best thing about the Dungaree Journal is that it comes with plastic sleeves, which makes adding more photos easier.  The binding rings also let you add more pages or sleeves, so pick up some refill sleeves if you would like more than 10 sleeves.
fairy step 5
Mix & match your papers for a fun look. Remember, all Canvas Corp Brands papers are very versatile and can be mixed and matched.  You can also add color to the wide range of black and white art.  You don’t have to just slip in photos, you can create little 4″x6″ or 5″x7″ mini scrapbook pages to slip into each sleeve.

I loved mixing 7gypsies and Canvas Corp to create a fun look with a vintage twist.

Cutting out beautiful images from the printed Canvas Sheets makes great embellishments.
fairy step 8
The Tattered Angels’ Corduroy Mistable Paper in itself is a great layering element that acts like vellum.

Use the opposite side of the Denim Fabric Sheet for a different color & variety.
Inside the back cover is finished with some pretty lace trimming & the Spring Showers printed Canvas Sheet.  Mixing paper and fabrics looks so great together.
