Canvas Home Basics Introduces a “French Inspired” Paper Collection

The “French Inspired” Collection was created in a combination of Red & Ivory, Black & Ivory and Black & Kraft papers that were inspired by vintage French fabrics and linens leading us to a collection of Toile, French vintage graphics and a series of French Sayings (it is written in English too in the fine print) that are perfect for card making, mini books, scrapbooking pages and more. We love how they work so well together and with current papers. There are 6 prints on ivory and 6 on kraft that bring a vintage/modern look when printed. They are perfect for layering, background papers, or uses as is for cards.

Project Idea #1

This card was created with 2 sheets from our 5×7 printed paper pad that were put together with a strip of paper tape to create the prefect 5×7 card base. The pads are available in ivory & black and kraft & black with scaled down versions of our favorite canvas home basics papers.

Project Idea #2

Our black eflute is a great texture when paired with this collection. We added a few tags from our new Kraft Tall Tags – just one little stamp is all you need. These stamps are part of the our new stamp collection we designed for Hampton Art. To see them all here is the link. You can buy them through us or directly from Hampton Art.

Project Idea #3

One thing we love about our cardstock, is that it makes great cards. Each of the papers is a perfect background paper that stands alone. Adding fun pieces from the French Sayings, Printed Tags or cutouts of the paper complete this card. If you are looking for a great line to do thank you notes, trendy wedding invitations or shower invites, this line is classic and fun to work with.
