Hi, There!

I am working on a project for my church.  I picked up a Christmas box from Michaels (50% off) and decided to donate it for our raffle table at our Women's Ministry Christmas Dessert Nite!  I know it is a yummy nite full of dessert and appetizers!!!  Worship, prayer, and fellowship with lots of fun tucked into it all!

I decided to add some of my handmade cards inside the box and this is what I have so far and a few more to go along with some candy tucked inside the box;)

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

The two snowmen image (Whimsy Stamps) are on a gatefold card closed with a ribbon to the side.

Hi, There!

No more leaves to be peeking through but I am a little behind with my cards.  I love this image from The EastWind and I found by looking through my stash this die of a great maple leaf frame and so the card is born!  Next post will be on the Christmas cards I am getting around to creating - slowly but surely!!  Be happy and always be blessed ~ Hugs, CaroleAnn

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!
