Guest Post - Memories by Christine

Thank you, Maryanne, for having me over again! I'm Christine over at MBC Scrapbooking. This month, we are celebrating Christmas in July! Stop by all month long to link up your holiday-related memories, crafts, DIY gifts, and recipes!
MBC Scrapbooking

I LOOOOOOVE working with canvases. It's so much fun to create a layout on something I can hang on a wall or sit up on a frame (much durable than paper!) Here are some of my favorites- hope you are inspired!
I custom-designed this Christmas canvas for Katie over at Katie's Nesting Spot last year as a prize for one of Maryanne's online crops. I included her family picture in the middle before sending it off:)
To get the frame effect, use the back of the canvas . I lined the inside with black felt and red cardstock, then framed the outside with scrapbooking paper and embellishments.



Speaking of Christmas, here's another canvas I did last year. I folded paper around the canvas and Mod Podge-ed all the way around. The glossy finish is beautiful- it looks like a fancy wrapped gift! Add a few buttons, ribbons, and cardstock, and all it needs is a fun quote or picture for the center.


Here's another wrapped canvas I made, only with fabric. I fastened a snapshot of my friend's three beautiful daughters to the cardstock in the middle.  This one was a lot of fun to make, and the 3D effect from the flower is awesome!

And finally, here is one of my most favorite projects so far this summer- my very first subway art! (It was featured here on Scrappy Gifts last month!)

Thanks for reading, and thanks again for having me, Maryanne! Have a wonderful day!
Love,
C:)

Fabulous work Christine! I love that one you made for Katie!

Free Printable and Guest Post from Memories by Christine!

Hi Scrappy Gifts readers!
I'm Christine over at MBC Scrapbooking. Maryanne was my first-ever bloggy friend, and we are even from the same hometown. What a small world! I have learned so much from her and enjoy her sweet tutorials and giveaways she has so generously contributed to my blog.  BTW, her online crops are awesome! Be sure to stop by next month's- you won't be disappointed, and you'll leave truly inspired:)
Lately, I've been into digital scrapbooking (although I do consider myself a paper crafter at heart;), and seeing as we just finished up wedding month over at my blog, I have a free printable for you that's love-inspired:)

I used a verse that was read during our wedding to make it. If the heart and rings look familiar, the images are from my MBC button for June:) I just altered everything a bit on my digital program:)
You can print out the freebie here. Enjoy, and have fun embellishing a cute frame or canvas to place this in! I bet Maryanne can offer some great tips- or just stop by her store, of course:)
Thanks for having me, Maryanne! Please keep MBC in mind all through July as we link up Christmas projects- I'd love to have you!
Love,
C:)

Isn't she so sweet! Thanks for the beautiful printable! Be sure to check her out for her Christmas in July! There will be another giveaway from me over there sometime this month!
