Oh my they have cars!!!!!

Yes I know my boys have had cars for over a year now and acually Drew has had his for almost 2 years, but I have yet to scrap them. So here thye are both boys in one book on the first day of getting their new cars. Drew got his in August of 2008 and Tim got his in June of 2009.

This book is also made totally out of Maya Road products except for the paper (they don't do paper).

Fun with Mini Sewing...........

This is a canvas covered with fabric, and then I used Maya Road mini sew chipboard set to decorate the canvas, and a page from the large dress form book. I love using lace and fabric in my work. This is actually so easy to do, I sprayed the scissors and needle with silver maya mist and wrapped thread around the chipboard bobbin, and I just covered the 2 dress forms with vintage book paper. The two frames are also from maya road, painted with ranger paints.

Well Have a great day!
And don't for get that I do sell my vintage ephemera that I used in my classes and then some on my etsy site LaurasVintageGarden and I am having a sale right now.

I love all the canvas albums that companies are coming out with, I just love working with material. If you know me then you know I must have been a seamstress in a past life. I love working with fabric in my scrapbooks, and ribbon and making my own flowers. So when I got a chance to play with canvas and scrapping I feel in love, I've been printing my ephemera on canvas for years so they just seem to fit. You know you can run just plain muslin thru you printer too, I iron it on the back of freezer paper to give it the body it needs and just print, for me it always works like a charm. For this project I just sent canvas thru the printer, and yes I know they make the stuff to go thru the printers but, some times you just don't have that on hand. Here's a Maya Road Banner that I printed on canvas then use fabric tac to glue is all to gether.
Ok sorry It will not let me move the pictures the way I want to. For those of you who are afraid of canvas please don't be, I did treat this like paper. I glued embellies to it just like I would any other book, I just used fabric tac.
Have a great day
