It's no secret that I have loved and collected 7 Gypsies goodies for years.
To use the word *hoard* is putting it mildly.
For this project, I combined new and old (and somewhat vintage)
7 Gypsies and Canvas Corp products
The base of this book is a vintage 7 Gypsies chipboard book.
The book came with 3 signatures and holes pre-punched in the spine of the book.
I decided to combine the signatures with a current collection
to create a
Route 66 Foodie Recipe Book.
Using 7 Gypsies Epicurean Collection,
I wallpapered the pages and created pockets for the Epicurean Recipe cards.
Torn pockets, side pockets, top pockets, envelope pockets - always pockets!
Notice on the left side of the page,
I used a former 7 Gypsies acrylic piece to cover an old photo.
These mini-round hangers make great pull tabs!
Love the tiny kitchen charms!
The file folders made a perfect center for each signature.
They are adorable and come in many styles.
You can find them here:
Canvas Corp Brands File Folders
Sometimes, it's fun to use the back of the 7 Gypsies packaging
and add tiny images to pages.
Another overlay from a former 7 Gypsies collection.
This one was supposed to be used on the 7 Gypsies carousel.
Thus the holes on the left side.
Ribbon threaded thru the holes dresses it up a bit.
The right side of this page is a fold out with more pockets.
Panel #1 on the right side with a chipboard belly band to hold in ephemera.
Fold out panel #2 with a belly band made out of laser cut chipboard from
Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts
Fold-out #3 with pockets on the far left to hold recipe cards.
For this page, I wanted to hang some of these adorable
mini recipe cards.
I took a 7 Gypsies mini round hanger,
twisted the top to make a hook,
added the recipe cards
and to make sure they stayed on, glued a bead on the end of the hook.
Some collectible envelopes from 7 Gypsies (yes, part of my hoard)
and back of 7 Gypsies packaging in that tiny sailboat.
More pockets thanks to ephemera and 7 Gypsies tape used as a tab.
Hope you enjoyed my photo-torial
See you next time!
