Hi, There!  NOTE:  PHOTO HEAVY!!!

This is where I have been all this time.  Having fun making this mini 7 x 7 photo album for my daughter, Jennifer.  Jen was baptized this year but last year her daughter and I were baptized and we have these awesome photos that need a nice home.

So this is where they will go.  She will have fun deciding how to set up her photos.

I researched so many videos to learn how to make an album from beginning to end and I thank -
 Scrap and Create /Christine Riley as I have used her album tutorial and changed some pages up but her instructions are outstanding.  

Papers used are Stamperia Wonderland.  Gorgeous paper hard to cut it up but this is worth it!  Thanks for stopping by and I think I will take a break from album-making for a while but plan to make another one soon!!!  Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

The left side is the inside cover with a front pocket.  The right side is the first page which is a side flap that opens with lots of photo room.  The tab is a pullout that is blank for your photos.

Here you can see the binding and the four pocket pages I made

A gatefold pocket page.

The tags (Graphic 45 die-cut and tag)and bookmarks that I put inside some of the pockets have Scripture of Faith on the back to keep with the Faith Theme of the album and she has room for journaling!

Last page with back cover and another pocket for the tags and bookmark!

Like to enter this album with the following:

Hi, Everyone!

Finally getting back to sitting at my craft table to get some work done.  I am really getting back to creating a mini photo album I started before my hip replacement but that will take some time but I am enjoying putting it together, slowly.  And will be sure to post the album once it is done!

But I did get to color up this image that I have had for some time by artist Grazio Salvo called Women of Flowers/Metamorphis.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope it will not be too long before my next post.  Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Just BEE Cause Cards!

Hi, There!

Well, I managed to get two more cards done from this SSS July kit.  You get a honeycomb die with the kit and the stamp with two bees holding hands is just too much!!! 

The clouds on the one card are from my sticker stash.  So much fun with these cute guys!! 

Oops!  This kit has sold out - sorry.

Thanks again for beeing there to visit my blog:)  Can't help myself as I guess I am bee-sotted with these bees;)  LOL 

Enjoy your day.  Blessings and hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Smart and Sweet As Can BEE

Hi, There!

It has been a while for me to create anything as my time has been very limited in sitting time at my craft table due to some hip problems.  Having a hip replacement in about a months time; so may be out of commission for a month or two.

But here is a project I did once I received my July kit from SSS.  Love this set.  The bees are full of personality and I love the one with the glasses!!!  I got my ideas for these cards from Cards and Coffee Time on YouTube.

Without further ado here it is and thanks for stopping by - have a great weekend!  Blessings and hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

Welcome, Friday!!!!  And welcome to my blog!  This is my post as a DT member of QKR Stampede.  My card inspiration is another baby card (if you scroll down, I think this is my third) so at the risk of being boring here it is - a photo of both outside of the card and inside of the card:

Card Recipe:
Digital Image is from our sister company of QKR - ES#40204   The second photo is the inside sentiment from the same ES-#40203

This is an A2 base card stock/SU  Background paper on the front and inside from Graphic 45/Little Darlings.  Frame is from Whimsy Stamps shaker die frame, ribbon, buttons all from my stash.

Hi, There!

Hope you are happy it is Friday!!!  I am:)  Sorry this is another baby card but I just had to do one more in blue once I found some leftover scrapbooking paper.  Next week, I will have another baby card that can be used for either boy or girl that was made with a cute digital image from QKR.

QKR Stampede challenge is always Anything Goes, so give it a try.  If you do not like coloring, they have some great sentiments to browse thru.  Sometimes a quick card can be made from just working with a sentiment and using up some of those scraps. 

I made this card mostly from scraps that I had from Graphic 45 "Little Darlings"  and the flowers and pearls are all from my stash.  Love when I can look thru my boxes and find goodies I forgot I had!!!!! :)

Thanks for stopping by, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

This is a 6 x 6 white cardstock base card.  Covered with Graphic 45 papers from Little Darlings, distressed around the edges with Brushed Corduroy.  Also, from same DP, I used a background paper that has a lullaby with music notes printed on it and added some blue tulle, then the image was framed with a Lawnfawn stitched die.  Flowers, pearls, buttons from stash.

Hi, There!

Well, it has been a while for me to make any kind of baby cards, but one of the young women in our church will be having a baby soon and they just found out she is having a girl!!!  So I get to go pink, pink, pink!!!!  

I made an easel card for this week's inspiration for QKR Stampede's challenge of Anything Goes - using one of QKR's digital stamp #32502.  It is a Scripture from Jeremiah and thought it was great for her card.  

(Sorry, the photo is not the best - have a new camera and pod and having some problems with it!  Just a matter of getting to know one another;)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you join in for our Anything Goes challenge.  Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Papers from K&Company/Brenda Walton   Ribbon, flowers, and pearls and buttons all from my stash.  I used a Lawnfawn rectangle stitched frame die and distressed the edges with Spun Sugar.
