Gypsy Book Box by Shannon Green #GSLCCCBmatchup

Gypsy Book Box #GSLCCCBMatchup


Welcome to the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and Canvas Corp Brands month long Matchup. We wanted to introduce you to Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and share with you a bit of who they are. GSLC began as a small business creating items for personal use. Two years ago, they changed their name to Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and became known for their laser cut products. Their products have been shipped all over the world. Their focus is laser cut shapes and kits for scrapbookers and paper crafters. We are excited to be partnering with them for the month of September and hope you will join along!

Our first Crew Member ~ Shannon Green

No doubt about it, Architextures and Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts make a great team! Watch my video for a walk through of my project then check out the rest of this blog post for a full list of supplies and some detailed pictures.

    The box & book turned out awesome! I would have done the same thing with binder rings. ?

      It NEVER occurred to me to remeasure before putting in the rings! Der.
