I know I mostly show you great memory-keeping ideas, photo preservation information, and easy ways to scrapbook digitally and tell family stories with Heritage Makers, but this is way too fun not to share.
You might already know that in the last couple of years, Heritage Makers has added 2 paper scrapbooking and crafting lines. One of those lines, Anthology, has quite a bit of crafting & DIY products now, too.
This is called the Canvas Exchange (from Anthology). I know it's hard to tell what you even do with that from this photo, but don't worry. I've got it covered.
That photo is the Canvas Exchange Starter Set. Next, Canvas Exchange Set 2 came out, and that's what I'll show you here. I got the block kit separately (the starter set comes with it), which looked like this when it came:
And Canvas Exchange Set 2 was rolled up nicely in this tube. Here is what the canvas pieces look like:
I painted the blocks (with minimal sanding--good news for me since I really hate sanding)!
So the canvas pieces have this sticky backing on them. But not sticky like you think. This stuff can be used about 100 times (literally). Stick on, peel off, replace, exchange. Repeat.
But the first thing you need to do is cut the long pieces in half so they can wrap around two blocks.
Then the rest of the "work" is just peel & stick.
And a top view so you can see the strips around the side better.
The fun thing about the Canvas EXCHANGE is the exchange part. Each Canvas Exchange Set comes with 3 sets of canvas. I personally just store them on a 12x12 page protector for scrapbook pages. They just stick right on there.
I exchanged the "enjoy the ride" for the "be awesome today." It's going on my piano. How cute is this?
Because the blocks are sold separately, I could even get an extra set of blocks for a different room!
And just in time for the 4th of July, I got Canvas Exchange Set 3, which I absolutely ADORE!
I LOVE this set!!
Just like the last set, I cut the strips in half first:
And here they are on my piano.
New canvas sets are coming out each month, too, so you can pick & choose and get something you love. Swapping them out is so fun! I think my favorite part is that it's cute DIY home decor with next to ZERO effort.
Canvas Exchange Sets and Blocks are available at www.heritagemakers.com/jenniferwise by clicking "products" then "Anthology." It's fun & easy DIY!
