 Hi, There!

I hope my post finds you all well.  Here on the East Coast, we are still waiting for it to warm up!  Spring has to arrive soon but in the meantime, I am keeping warm all bundled up! LOL  

Had some creativity going on here, so my hands have been kept warm by creating a Baby Boy Mini Album from envelopes.  This was a project I decided to make for one of the ladies at church expecting her baby boy any day now and since we celebrated her baby shower, it is now safe for me to show the photos of this album.  Hope you enjoy taking a peek.  Hugs and be blessed always, CaroleAnn

NOTE:  Photo Heavy

Cover for Mama to fill in name and date

Lots of Journal cards and large areas for photos

This photo and the one below open like a book


Flaps open to reveal the page full of journal cards and plenty of room for photos

A die-cut holds more journal cards

The End!  Blessings

ALICE IN WONDERLAND Mini Album made with envelopes

 Hi, There!

Just wanted to share this with you.  I wanted to make a mini album for my sister's birthday and so the search began on youtube for mini albums that were easy!  Well, there is a ton of examples out there of mini albums made with envelopes!  So here is the one I made for her!  I used craft envelopes that I had on hand (4x6).  Loads of fun putting it together and using up lots of my 6 x 6 papers. I have a collection of Alice in Wonderland stamps from Stamping Bella and Make It Crafty, so put them to use in this card booklet for my sister.  Stamping Bella shows you a video on coloring most of their images so I copied those Copic markers down and had a few days of coloring fun!!

Note:  Photo heavy.  Thanks for peeping, hugs, and blessings always, CaroleAnn

 Hi, There!

I hope my little note finds you all well and recovered from the hustle and bustle we seem to create outselves in our lives!!!!  LOL

We had a peaceful Christmas and now we are getting ready for the arrival of my daughter from Minnesota and a grandson that is traveling back home to us and all this starts today and goes thru the weekend!!!

But wanted to wish you all a blessed and happy New Year and I pray you will all be safe in your goings and comings for this New Year of 2022!

I received some new papers from Stamperia Winter Tales, and I was going to try to make an album from all the goodies but decided to make a birthday card for someone who requested a card.  This is an easel card.

Thanks for stopping by and be blessed always ~ Hugs, CaroleAnn

It has been quite a year for all of us and for me, personally, we have had some health issues that slowed me up from being able to give much attention to my blog.  But just thought I would send out this little note to let you know I am still here - peeping at all your beautiful creations!  

Below is just a photo of some of the cards on my table that I just completed.  I am now finished with my Christmas card-making (made 50 cards to my surprise:) and now will enjoy the remainder of this year with my family and friends.  

I pray that the good Lord will send you many blessings in 2022 and keep you and yours safe in all your goings and comings!

All stamps, papers and die cuts used to make these cards are from Stamping Up.

 Just posting a few photos of some of my creations for my Christmas cards for family and friends.

Be blessed and enjoy your family and friends.  Hoping to have a better 2021 with hope for an end to all this chaos.

The first two cards were made from a kit - Kim's Cards.  

Next two cards from my Stampin Up supply.

I stuffed a pair of warm wool blend socks inside this little mini coffee cup carrier!  Was fun to make.

 Hey There!

Hi, and thanks for stopping by.  This is just a quickie post with a card I made just using a few stamps on the base card.  Colored with Copic Markers.  Real simple.  

I love fall and we have had some awesome colors here upstate, but now there is so much rain I believe the leaves will be leaving us soon!!!  LOL  Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

 Hi, There!

Since Halloween is not far off, I got this chance to try my hand at this special fold card.  So here is a photo and all the supplies used to make this card are from SU.  

It was a fun card to make and I will try a few more for those in my family that like to receive halloween cards.  

Hope you are well, and I hope to be around on my blog - but rest assured I am checking in with all my faves - may not be leaving many comments, but I am loving what you are all making.  

Be blessed and be safe, until next time ~ hugs and blessings, CaroleAnn
