Creativation 2017 was such an exciting and amazing experience! So many new memories were made from helping Canvas Corp Brands set up their booth, to walking the show floor and seeing the major craft companies showcase their new products.
One of the new products that is definitely a show stopper is 7Gypsies' new Architextures. These are a variety of vintage-inspired pieces that can be used for mixed media, cardmaking, papercrafting, and anything you can think of! There are rub-ons as well as self adhesive pieces that include vintage Mason jars, dressforms, lanters, trucks, chicken wire, and SO MUCH more! These pieces are meant to look and feel like the real thing. You can see through the glass of the mason jars, and the dress form feels soft just like a real fabric dressform would.
CCB had a "Create and Take" table where some of us designers could sit with customers and just create with the new pieces. This little tag here is one that I created with some of the new 7Gypsies Architextures.
What's so cool about this piece is that the background is actually made from the Architextures packaging. 7Gypsies cleverly created the packaging to be these amazing designs so that you can cut and create with them, as well. It definitely adds more value to the product!
Since the dressform is self-adhesive, it was just adhered down onto the background. Then, with some tissue paper bits and a little bling, I was able to dress her up a bit. The details along the lefthand side is just some torn paper and then bits of another design of Architextures that I cut and pieced together.
To finish the tag, I added a few sticker letters to spell the word, "Chic" and then added a lace loop at the top.
These Architextures are so much fun to play with! If you are interested in getting your hands on some, they should be available in the Canvas Corp Brands' shop on February 2, 2017. Keep your eyes peeled for them! Im sure we will see some amazing creations coming up using these 7Gypsies Architextures!
