Hi, There!

I loved these owls the second I saw them and just knew I would have fun coloring and creating a scene for them.

Card 1:
I started with a Distress Oxide background and left the bottom with the white card showing so I could use that look for the snow fun!  Added glitter to snowflakes and the trees.

Card 2:
I used a DP background from La La Land Crafts; made the snow hills with a die from MFT; added glitter to the background and trees.

Sentiments used are from the MFT clear stamp set.  I used the MFT die cuts to cut everything out.  The owl in the front has been mounted with foam 3D.  The trees and the owl on the sled were all glued.

I think they are having as much fun in the snow that I had coloring them!  Thanks so much for stopping by and hope to see you soon, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

A Happy New Year to Everyone!!

I completed my first mini-album and now working on the second.  These are surprise gifts to two of the ladies at church that I am friends with.  I have tucked inside a gift card on the back page.  Great way to present a gift card in these little chunky albums!

Both ladies take wonderful photos for our church events and not sure they have any favorites that they could cut down to size to fit some of the album pages but I left some blank for them just in case.

This mini-album is made with two large tags die-cut from heavy card stock in white for front and back of the album.  And then a spine with three spine folding pages and then I add my fun folds and accordion page to these pages.  Then decorate with DP and stickers etc.  So much fun!  I first saw this idea on the La La Land Crafts YouTube page by Irina.

Thanks for stopping by, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Used a snowflake border on the side, half a doily and the rest is from Echo Park Perfect Winter - papers and all embellishments.  The red ribbon closes the little book up nicely.

First page.  I made my own pocket holder and placed a tag inside and decorated with half of a poinsettia wreath die from LaLaLand Crafts.

This is a flip-up card page and I tucked another tag in the belly band.

Start of accordion pages.

Last page with a gift card!  Thanks for peeking.
