Canvas Corp Brands - American Vintage Mini Album

If you are looking for the Heartfelt Creations Wednesday post, pleas click HERE.

Hello, Vintage Crafters! Welcome to my Canvas Corp Brands blog post!

I am one of the Vintage Market Contributors for the Canvas Corp Crew and they asked me to create a project with the NEW 7 Gypsies American Vintage Collection!

My project is a "junked up" mini album full of pockets, flaps, ephemera, and vintage goodness! Plus, who doesn't love denim?!

For a full product list, see the end of the post. Doesn't this pile of "junk" look fantastic! A vintage-lover's dream!

This sweet denim mini album is called 4x6 Dungaree Journal, but it is approximately 7" x 7" x 2" and comes with ten 6" x 4" page protectors and two binding rings. I used some great Canvas Corp goodies to decorate the cover! I wanted the cover to look like a pile of things collected on a journey across the country!

Using lightweight chipboard, I created eight 6" x 6" pages, plus I added four of the page protector sleeves, which are 4" x 6". This mini is vintage America from cover to cover!

To see the full album, please see the slideshow video here:

I don't have a step-by-step tutorial for this one, but there is nothing complicated about this one. I made simple pockets from cardstock and paper. Easy peasy!

I love this denim cutie! I am a sucker for Americana and patriotic stuff, as well as vintage American signs and images. I hope you love it, too! I used some of the Scrap Packs that are for sale in the CCB Store. They are full of great items and no two packs are the same! 

Thanks for looking! For supply links, please see below!
