Burlap and Canvas - Paper Issues new theme!

Okay, I'm back!!!

This one, I was really excited to share about, because it's my first 'official' project that I made for my Paper Issues team. 

For those of you that is not familiar with Paper Issues - it's an online Etsy store, and you can purchase fabulous papercrafting supplies!  (You can use coupon: modpaperie to get 20% off EVERYTHING in their store! How awesome is that!) Their stock changes ALL the time, so I make a point of checking it every week!  It's super fast shipping, and the shipping is reasonable, too (even for Canadians!) so yeah, it's my fave shop on Etsy right now!

Anyhow - this is a blog hop, so if you're coming from Susan's blog, you're on the right track! If not, just kindly go back and start there! You won't miss me for too long as I'm the second one!

Besides their online store, Paper Issues also have a creative blog and linky parties, so you can go and show off your amazing projects to the rest of the world.  If your project gets featured as a post - then you get more traffic to your blog! It's a win win situation - and it's super fun! Then, there's the creative team - which I'm on, and it's just a whole bunch of girls who are literally addicted to anything paper and anything that can be attached to paper.  We all have too much fun together!

So a new linky theme has begun, and the theme is Burlap and Canvas.  These are absolutely my current fave items when it comes to adding that 'wow' factor to my projects.  (Stay focused as there's a yummy prize offered at the end of this post) You should have seen me when I found out about the theme - so happy!!!

I had these canvas pennants from Canvas Corp and wanted to do something fun with them.  As soon as I saw the Wine and Cheese Sampler paper from Black and Ivory collection, I knew I had to make a pennant to put up at a dinner party! How fun would that be!

To get started -  I stamped with Tiny Textures background stamps from Tim Holtz.  These stamps were just too perfect - each of these designs somehow matched perfectly with the Canvas Corp papers!  Then I added the cut outs from the paper along with burlap flowers and burlap cloth... and ta-da!!!

Here's my project!


I love how this came about. It didn't take me all that long to make, yet, it looks so pretty!!!

Of course, some close up pics!


I love these ribbons. I've been wanting to get these ribbons from Stampin' Up forever and finally got it in my hands - had to use it!


This burlap flower is already made - all I needed to do is to add the topper!


Oh, and I love the adhesive cork, too... have been using it in some of my projects lately... has the similar look as burlap and canvas.. and all goes together so well! I just had to add the plastic cutlery on! So fun!


The 'enjoy' letters are adhesive cork letters and I inked it up with black to give it 'uumph'. The pennants are cut using Papertrey Ink pennant dies.

Hope you liked my project!

  1. Such a fun project Thienly! I love the use of a banner on a pennant of the banner, nice way to carry the theme... :-) I haven't used burlap yet but I sure have noticed it in your projects lately... :-D I have been looking for cork but so far it was too thick, the thinner I found would be great for cards accents but I'm not sure it would cut with my dies which is what I want to do... Have you ever tried to cut cork with your Eclips??

    1. Thanks Bee! Yeah, I wouldn't be able to live without canvas and burlap! There's a few companies now that make adhesive cork and those are nice and thin. I've never done them through eclips or Big Shot, but I bet that it could do it. It's about the same thickness as the Papertrey felts :)

  2. You are so creative. This is so fun and imaginative. I would have never thought to tie plastic cutlery to the banner, yet it looks PERFECT! Love all the texture. The stamping looks FAB. Awesome project, Thienly.
