Canvas Corp Brands - 7Gypsies Serengeti Collection Mini Album

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

Hello, Vintage Crafters! Welcome to another 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 7Gypsies Serengeti Collection!

I had fun using this "throwback" collection to create a little mini about my husband's recent mission trip to Uganda.

I wanted a small project that my husband, Matt, could put on his desk. Each time he sees this little book, it will remind him to pray for the people and the Church in Uganda. I used the 4x6 Drab Canvas Gypsy Book and the Serengeti Collection to create a prayer and remembrance journal. The addition of the word tiles and the Serengeti elephant charm gave this little book a vintage feel.

This little book contains three canvas pages. I added a bit of the Serengeti papers to each page, and then displayed photos from Matt's trip. I added some vintage ephemera and used some of the Serengeti Vintage Photos to add more interest to each page. The mini clothespins are perfect for adding extra photos or little notes to the pages.

The muted colors of the paper and the album pages are a nice contrast to the vibrant photos the Matt took during the trip.

I added some extra photos and journaling spots to the back page.

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

  1. I love the colors!!!! This is such a little gem of a book, and a great way to preserve the memories and the connections that were made while in Africa. Love the way you mixed the ephemera in with real photos. Beautifully, done, Gloria!
