Canvas Corp Brands and Relics & Artifacts collaboration

Hello there lovelies! I have been very lucky to have been able to take part on the #RACCBmatchup (read more here and here). Here is a peek into my project – go to the Canvas Crop Blog for a full step-by-step tutorial and more pictures!!!

Here are the products I used on my project (and a few random bits and bobs from my own stash).

This is how the front and the back of my „display book“ look like. I call it the „Talking book“ and it has a few quotes noted in it that I found suitable for the the „Something old, something new“ collaboration theme. My viewpoit to the theme is life and how what you should keep in mind living it.

Live With Wonder – Canvas Corp

Hello lovelies, Christmas is coming and before you know, it´s 2017!!! And speaking of 2017, have you already made thoughts about what you are going to do next year? Set goals? I haven´t :). I am just going to wait and see what the New Year has planned for me… And thus I created this art journal spread:

Universe Art Journal spread - Sanna Lippert

And this is what I used to create the galaxy/universe type of background:

Universe Art Journal spread - Sanna Lippert

There is lots of Tattered Angels spray inks (Chalkboard, Glimmer Mist and Simply Sheer) as well as some Decor&DIY paint in there. A stamp set, a white gel pen and a black marker. Other than that I used old book sheets and a vintage typewriter.   Universe Art Journal spread - Sanna Lippert

I am sure you have seen lots of space/night sky backgrounds popping up on social media and created in a variety of ways. Don’t they just look good? I love them! So I have been wanting to create that kind of background myself for a while. But instead of grabbing stamp inks, I went for my favorite product, Tattered Angels spray inks. And they worked so well in my art journal. I combined Glimmer Mists, Chalkboard Mists and Simply Sheer products and believe me, the shimmer and glimmer is just gorgeous. It makes me really feel like I am somewhere in outer space when looking at it – even if I say so myself. The creating process is really simple to do.

Universe Art Journal spread - Sanna Lippert

The word „live“ is hand written and fussy cut. The other words/sentiments are either stamped or written with my old typewriter. Universe Art Journal spread - Sanna Lippert

Just look at that gorgeous shimmer and shine on the page!! It is truly amazing IRL!!!Universe Art Journal spread - Sanna Lippert Universe Art Journal spread - Sanna Lippert

So I haven´t really made any New Year´s promises for 2017 and I am not going to. I am just going to live the year as best as I can and in the end of next year I will see, where it took me :).

Jolly Christmas cards – Canvas Corp

Hello lovelies, today I´m sharing another set of Christmas cards with you. This time in classical red-white-green tones. I used the Canvas Corp Mix & Match paper pad called Jolly Christmas for this set with some red and green spray inks by Tattered Angels.

Sanna Lippert - Jolly Christmas cards

These three cards are really easy and simple to make. The only „messy“ part is the coloring of the canvas pieces with spray inks :). Other than that it´s just mainly paper layering. So if you need a few quick and easy cards, this type might be the one to go for.

Sanna Lippert - Jolly Christmas cards

The fun part about the Canvas Corp Mix & Match paper pads is that you have pattened papers and special papers (like the corrugated cardstock above) in the pad with some burlap and canvas in matching colors. So you can pretty much work with one set and make a pile of themed creations with just one set. The have a set for different themes, like gardening, coffee, kitchen, bewerages, baking, travel etc. Go to the Canvas Corp shop and type „mix and match“ into the search icon and you will find all the sets available :).

Sanna Lippert - Jolly Christmas cards

These cards are also created with the same paper pad as a starting point. I then die cut a word with a die cut die  (by Elizabeth Craft Desings) as a centerpiece for my cards. The canvas behind the die cut word is also from the paper pad, but I toned them red and green with Tattered Angels Glimmer and Chalkboard Mists.

Embossed Christmas cards – Canvas Corp

Hello lovelies!!! A countdown to Christmas has started over at the Canvas Corp Brands blog and there is lots and lots of inspiration for everyone to see! So I highly recommend, you keep an eye on the blog and what is going on over there. The projects are for sure going to get you into CREATIVE Christmas spirit :)!!

I joined the fun with a set of 12 Christmas cards. Yes, TWELVE!!! I am coming closer to my goal of getting all the handmade Xmas cards done (and mailed) in time this year…

Here is what I did:
Embossed, stamped Xmas cards - Sanna Lippert And I only needed two sheets of 12×12 paper for these cards!!! One plain kraft cardstock and one Snowflakes on Kraft Reverse. Both from the Canvas Corp store. A little paper goes a long way, as you can see.

Embossed, stamped Xmas cards - Sanna Lippert

I´ve used 4 different embossing powders (see the video in the end for more details!) on my cards – a plain black and white one, seafoam white and a glitter black. Those colors worked so well with the kraft cardstock and in combination with the black patterened paper.

Embossed, stamped Xmas cards - Sanna Lippert

The only thing I needed to add was some fussy cut fabric pieces from the Jolly Christmas Fabric Panel. I colored the fabric with markers and decorated them with some glitter glue.

Embossed, stamped Xmas cards - Sanna Lippert

A little bit of canvas fringe for additional decoration and stamped, fussy cut sentiments by Elizabeth Craft Designs to personalize the cards and then you only need to adhere everytthing on their places. Fun, fast and easy!  And I love the look of black and kraft and fabric/canvas together. A little bit retro, a little playful and not too bulky so they will fit into an envelope well too.

I love this snowman :)!!! Such a cute fabric sheet with all the picture on it. And now to the video:

Craft Apron – Canvas Corp Brands

Hi there lovelies! Are you a messy or a clean scrapper/crafter? I am a messy one AND don´t even ask me how many trousers and T-shirts I´ve ruined in my studio so far. Yes, I am the kind of crafter, who comes home & FORGETS to change into art creating gear (= old clothes that ARE ALLOWED to get dirty) and just starts creating in whatever I am wearing at the moment. I always say to myself that I will be carefull (ha!). Does n-o-t work!!!  And when I am in a mood for creating, I usually make a mess with some kind of media… there has been several accidentals dots and droplets on my keyboard (so far I have managed to get rid of them all), on my desk, on the floor (even though it is protected!!!) and of course, on my clothes. THUS, I really needed a craft apron (to be honest, it would be even more practical if it was an overall *giggle*)!!

Said and done – craft apron it was that I needed! Canvas Corp Brands have a few to choose from and I went for the plain fabric one with two front pockets. The back canvas fabric apron really looks good too – I might need to get one of those later (thinking of adding some stitching/embroidery to that one – would look really cool, I think). But first I need to learn how to do that :).

So back to the one I got myself. It looks like this in original:

Apron - canvas corp brandsWhen I got it, I already knew I would alter it abit 🙂 … here is how it turned out:
Sanna LippertI started off by adding a layer of water mist onto the surface, then sprayed blue, red pink and purple spray ink tones from Tattered Angels onto the surface and let those spread across the fabric. At some areas, like the edges, I added the spray ink with a paint brush. I made sure there was some color under the pockets too. The fabric is relatively thick material, so it didn´t soak thru it onto the backside at all.

Sanna Lippert

After the first spray ink layer was dry, I stared adding some High Impact Paint (also by Tattered Angels) details onto the surface. I used bottle caps for the circles, and stencils for the abstract patterns. The flowers are made with foam stamps using the Decor&DIY paints by Tattered Angels.

Sanna Lippert

I then added some paint droplets with a paint brush – again using the Decor&DIY paints from Tattered Angels. Finally, when all paint layers were completely dry, I took some Finnabair stamps and added stamp images with black waterproof ink onto the surface (butterflies & circles).

Sanna Lippert

And then, when everything was completely dry andI didn´t want to play with any more inks and paints, I took a Dina Wakley stencil and some Imagine Crafts pearlescent creative medium and applied that thru the stencil onto the fabric. I was a bit afraid if the medium would really stick to the fabric when it dries and let me tell you, it does. Sticks to it and doesn´t come off!!!

Now, this apron will for sure not look like this after several crafty sessions in my studio, but I don´t mind. That´s the way it should be. And maybe, just maybe it will save a few clothes from getting too „artsy“ too 😉 … How about you? Do you have one and have you altered it??

Happy crafting,

My favorite thing – the MMCC September reveal

Hi there! And just like that it´s September again. I hope you all had a lovely summer!!! Today I´d like to share with you the brand new Mixed Media Card Challenge blog´s SEPTEMBER challenge. The theme this time is: HARVEST BASKET and as an optional element you are to use: FRUIT.

Here is my take (obviously without the basket):
Sanna Lippert

My Card is full of pears – suitable for September as they usually are ripe around this time. I´ve inked the pear stamp with three different Distress Ink tones (orange, green and brown)  and then stamped the images in rows.

I also outlined the fruit with a black pen, added some transparent rhinestones on each of them and colored those with Copic markers green or orange. Then I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment and added yellow and green Glimmer Mist splatters onto the background as well as some black Glimmer Glaze spots.

Sanna LippertPears are one of my favorite fruit, so the sentiment is just perfect :). Now it is your turn – get your product out and create a fun mixed media card for this challenge!!!

See you at MMCC,

Loved much? – Canvas Corp Brands

Starting off with a white paper is one of my favorite things to do when scrapbooking. Creating a unique background to each layout is such a fun, creative process and there is for sure no second page alike. The Tattered Angels Mixed Media Origins papers are also perfect for this purpose! You can color them in with watercolor, paints, mists, inks, pastels and more. Here is the paper I started with:

And here is what I ended up with after mixing lots of yummy Tattered Angels color and Canvas Corp fussy cut papers together:

SONY DSCIf you haven´t tried the Mixed Media Origins papers yet, here are a few good reasons why you definitely should:

1. the paper feels like fabric
2. it is extra strong and you cannot tear it easily
3. the paper will dry flat after applying water and heavy paints
4. it can be fussy cut into smaller pieces and holds its shape
5. the paper is two sided so you have your choice in designs (now, we all know how hard it is to choose a side, so you might actually want to buy doubles 😉 …)
6. coloring is very much in trend now, so why not create your own coloring book style layout backgrounds with these papers?

I wanted to use there photos, as they have a special meaning to them. The great cousins meet after a long time (in London, as it happens, how practical that the paper is London/UK themed! And a total coincidence!!!).  Two of the kids are almost grown up, and the other ones still very little. There is so much admiration from the little ones towards the big ones, and the grown up boys patiently play and goof around with the small kiddos.  Then comes the sudden attack of affection. What special memories!!! I just needed to capture these precious moments on a layout.  I chose to print my photos in black and white, and use lots of happy Tattered Angels colors on the papers. In a start-to-finish video tutorial you can see how this layout comes together.

SONY DSCSupplies:
1. Tattered Angels – Glimmer Mist: Olive Vine, Aquamarine, Italian Sunset, Turquoise, Sugar Maple, Summer Glow, Marigold & Tea Cup
2. Tattered Angels – Chalkboard Mist: Alaskan Salmon
3. Tattered Angels – Plain Jane Baseboard: Iris & Cardboard
4. Tattered Angels – High Impact Paint: Antique Gold, Black & Light Blue
5. Canvas Corp – Mixed Media Origins collection – Melody
6. 7gypsies – Ordre du jour 8×8 paper variety pack
7. Canvas Corp – Mix & Match pad – Spring Showers
8. White paint pen – Dylusions by Ranger
9. Wood veneer – Studio Calico
10. Canvas Corp – Turquoise and Orange burlap yarn strips
11. Black pen – Staedtler
12. Alphabet thickers – American Crafts
Tools:
1. Paint brushes
2. Heat tool
3. Precision scissors
4. Stapler
5. Paper glue – Aleene´s

Here is a how to video for my scrapbooking layout.

 Step 1: Mist the background with Tattered Angels mists.  Add white color with the paint pen to the words in the middle of the Origins papers, and add High Impact Paint splatters here and there. Color some details along the edges of the paper. (see the video for reference on the different steps)
Step 2: Next, use paint brushes for coloring the flower pieces from the mix & match pad.
Step 3: Fussy cut all of the flowers and butterflies, and fussy cut words from the Ordre Du Jour paper pad.
Step 4: Assemble the photos on top of the colored pieces, and then add the burlap yarn, the fussy cut words, and wood veneer around the photos.
Step 5: Lastly, add journaling and the title with white alphabets. Have fun!
SONY DSC SONY DSCI hope you get inspired to try some of these papers and colours out yourself!!!
Happy scrapping,

Birthday Calendar Book – Canvas Corp Brands

Hi there! How do you keep track of upcoming birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and other special events?  Do you make handmade cards for each one?  And how do you KEEP TRACK on all those occations? I used to have a table calendar for those occations which however meant that I needed to copy various dates from one year to the next to be able to keep track. The electronical devices are great for keeping track on important dates, but they are not as fun as a table calendar. I used the 7gypsies Book Stand and book covers with inside pockets to create this fun table stand calendar.  The 7gypsies book stand sizes perfectly for a 5×7 book vertically or a 4×6 horizontally. The stand comes with the upright, crossbar, stand, 2 rings and 10 4×6 photo holders.  The only thing I changed were the book rings. I wanted them slightly bigger than the ones that come with the set. Thus the blue ones on this project.

http://blog.canvascorpbrands.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/sannalippert_birthdaycalendar_full10.jpg

We all use our mobile devices and social media for keeping up with family, friends and colleagues. I however find that it is nice to have a calendar on my desk to write things down in an old fashioned way. So why not also create a separate birthday table pocket calendar to keep up with anniversaries, birthdays and other important dates! The 7gypsies display stand is just perfect for this purpose. It comes with album sleeves and in addition is very decorative, when finished! I now have my very own DIY table birthday calendar, separated in quarters and each quarter had 3 sleeves/pockets for writing down each months important dates. I just need to flip thru it and open the right month and there is no more forgetting about birthdays, anniversaries and other major dates!

SONY DSC

Here is how I created the calendar:

Step 1: Use a Crop-a-dile to punch holes onto the album covers for hanging – cover with eyelets. SONY DSCStep 2: Place stencils onto the album covers (both back and front) and add golden texture paste onto the surface thru the stencil using a palette knife.
SONY DSCThe thick book covers makes them perfect for adding a nice thick layer of golden texture paste thru a stencil.  SONY DSCI really like the vintage look of this stencil on the front and back of the book covers.
SONY DSCSONY DSC SONY DSCStep 3: Mist the French Script canvas piece with blue Glimmer Mist, mist a piece of ivory cardstock or a tag with light pink Glimmer Mist. Now punch butterflies from the light pink toned paper. SONY DSCMist paper to the color you wish and punch, cut or die cut into the shapes you need.
SONY DSCMist is great when applied to canvas or fabric – the colors are so deep and rich. SONY DSCStep 4: Add 7gypsies rub-ons onto white cardstock, fussy cut a sentiment. Then decorate both the back and the front piece of the calendar with the previously misted elements, the canvas flower, buttons, rope and canvas/burlap pieces.
SONY DSCPunch holes in your book covers where you want them, the stand is flexible to allow you to create your own spacing.  SONY DSCStep 5: Cut papers into the photo sleeves from the Postale Collection paper (or use a paper of your choice from the versatile 7gypsies paper collection).  You can use the papers of your choice to fill in the page protectors.
 SONY DSCStep 6: Cut 4 white cardstock pieces to serve as folders between the quarters, use Glimmer Mist to add color. Spray ink the folder pieces with the lighter tone, then spray the punched tabs. This time use darker colors for more interest and contrast.
 SONY DSCChoose a fun assortment of Mist colors to mist your tabs.
SONY DSC SONY DSCStep 7: Stamp with the 7gypsies Distress Words stamp and black stamp ink onto the misted pieces. Adhere the tabs onto the sides and attach them with a stapler. Decorate the quarter divider pieces with alpha and number stickers, buttons, rub-ons, doodling – whatevery you prefer. This is a good spot to mix in a few older products too.
 SONY DSCStep 8: Organize the dividers and the sleeves onto the binding rings that comes with the display stand. If they are too small, save them and change for larger ones.
 SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSCStep 9: Here is what the finished project looks like. And some detail shots of the project 🙂
SONY DSCThe stand allows you to flip a page each day or flip through as needed.  And it adds a nice decorational touch to the room it is displayed on.
SONY DSCThe page protectors are perfect for 4×6 photos, postcards or even recipes for example.SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCI hope you get inspired to create your own stand project. It does not have to be a birthday calendar, it can be a minibook, an ATC display or a card display – whatever you feel like creating! I love this stand, it is so very pretty and adds a nice touch to my working area and studio!!
Happy Creating!!!

How far – the MMCC August challenge reveal

Hi there, time to share the Mixed Media Card Challenge blog´s AUGUST challenge with you today! This month you need to create a card around the theme: RAINBOW. As an optional element you are asked to use: DRAGONFLIES.

Here is my take: Sanna LippertI used a white cardstock base and added Patina Glimmer Mist with a paint brush onto the background (faux watercolour). Next I used the Rainbow Sky die cut die (by Elizabeth Craft Designs) to cut the rainbow, the clouds and the sun. I misted each of the rays with different Glimmer Mist tones (in rainbow colours). The clouds and the sun are treated with Silk Microfine Glitter (warm diamond & yellow).

Next I hand drew some dragonflies onto the background, added faux stitching on the outlines of the card and stamped and fussy cut the sentiment (stamp by Dylusions).

Sanna LippertAnd now it is your turn again. I do hope you find the time to join this fun challenge!!!

See you at MMCC,
Sanna

Travelling tags and more – Canvas Corp Brands

Hi there, I have actually managed not to post some of my work on my blog since Christmas… about time to change that! I did a series of tags and a canvas that went to the Canvas Corp Brands CHA 2016 booth and have been travelling with them ever since :). Lucky tags – I wonder if they´d take me instead of the tag *giggles*…

I´ll start with tag No.1:

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertPretty much everything on this tag is Canvas Corp Brands product (the corrugated cardboard, the spray inks, the Tattered Tangles paper, the burlap and the stamping. The only thing that is not their product, are the stencils I used and the &-sign. Now to tag No.2:

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertThis again, is a full Canvas Corp Brands product tag. It´s Christmas themed, since there was a little Xmas corner on the CCB booth at CHA. And then there was tag No. 3:

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertThis one is quite clean & simple actually. I did add quite an amount of Distress Glitter on it :). And the bow, the bow was my personal favorite on it. I wanted to keep it as an eye catcher. Here again, mists, stamping and paper by CCB. And there was also a canvas I sent them: Sanna LippertI´m really happy this one made it to the display. I like the colors on it alot. Again, I´ve used all kinds of Tattered Angels goodness on this one. In addition corrugated cardboad by CCB, lots of misting, some die cut dies and some stamping.  Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertI really like the product lines at Canvas Corp Brands. Everything works together, older or new product! All paper lines are very timeless. I obviously have a weak spot for their color lines, but I recommend you check out their canvas, burlap and fabric lines too. And don´t forget the papers :). Love working with this company´s product!!!

I also sent some other work with all these pieces to CHA, but that has been already shared here at some point, so no need to mention those again.

Happy crafting,
