Inkling: canvas prints with scrapbooking attitude


Do you scrapbook? Even if you don’t, this new product called Scrapbooking Attitude has plenty of applications for all kinds of crafters. The product was just introduced at the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) so it’s brand new and ready for all your creative ideas.




What makes Scrapbooking Attitude so unique is that it’s printable film. The concept is like a t-shirt transfer but the result is completely different. What’s so cool about this product is you can apply it to textured or embossed papers, wood, metal, textured fabric and more. The texture comes through as if your image was printed directly on the material.

Here are the steps I took:

Wedding Photo Scrapbooking Attitude Collage A
I chose a piece of battenberg lace that I had from some linens years ago. The crisp white cotton seemed the perfect canvas for our wedding photo. I added the date of our wedding and followed the instructions on the packet. You can see my abbreviated steps above.


I love how it turned out.


You can see the all the little slubs on the fabric and beautiful imperfect weave of the cotton.



Rather than a frame, I used an embroidery hoop to frame the canvas. I gave the embroidery hoop a few light coats of white spray paint and topped it off with a pearlized spray glaze (I used the Mod Podge brand).



Vintage seam binding finishes off the look.


I have a new wedding photo keepsake that pairs so nicely with our silk guest book.

I’m thrilled with the Scrapbooking Attitude product. Think about the personalized gifts you could make. I’d love to do a version with a new baby picture. How cute would that be? For more information about Scrapbooking Attitude check out their website here or on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube.
