When the art of putting photos onto paper and adding stickers and embellishments around them started, so did the name Scrapbooking. The craze took the world by storm and those who had never crafted before were drawn into a creative world. While many people are still traditionally making scrapbook pages and albums others have taken what they learned and are creating scrapbooking projects that are no longer inside the pages of their scrapbook, but they are in mini books, banners and on the walls of their homes.
Scrapbooking is a very personal craft, but one that can be shared with friends and family. Just because so many have tried the art of scrapbooking does not mean everyone has, so if scrapbooking is new to you, embrace it and make it your own.
We offer a wide range of scrapbooking products to fit many different scrapbooking styles from vintage, to clean and then somewhere in between.
7gypsies captures the most basic themes with a vintage twist – wedding, sports, Christmas, Halloween, safari, travel, nautical, cooking and more and work well with photos from the past and the present. The entire collection represents pieces printed and “naked” from the past. The term “naked” refers to products that are blank with no printing. the vintage twist loves to have an aged look which you can get by misting any of our papers with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist or Simply Sheer or adding an aged look to the edges.
Our term for layers of paper, die cuts, stickers and embellishments that surround the photos. Our Canvas Home Basics line offers a wide range of paper prints that are simple, classic and always available, unlike many scrapbooking lines that are released and quickly unavailable. Our mix and match approach to scrapbooking allows you to create your own themes, holiday and everyday, match photos and color pallets and just be creative. The extra weight of the paper also allows to use our printed cardstock as a base for layouts, used for die cuts or as embellishments. Along with our printed papers, we also offer a wide range of printed solids to match all printed on card stock weight paper.
Mixed Media Scrapbooking
Scrapbooking has come a long way and today just about anything goes, layouts are filled with paint, found objects, textures, fabrics and so much more. We are all about the everything goes approach and love the layering, painting, texturing that may all be done to highlight even just one photo. Canvas Home Basics papers are printed on 80# card stock, making them heavy duty enough to hold layers of paper, paint and embellishments.
Working with new products and design styles can give your scrapbook a fresh look. Our new Tattered Angles line “Tattered Tangles” is a great example of this new approach. Taking on the trend of Zentangle we created art in 12×12 papers and smaller sized paper embellishment packs that are ready to have color added and become a part of your next layout. So the option of working with new and unique materials when approaching today’s scrapbooking is what is keeping the craft alive and new and exciting products flooding into the market.
