Cupcake & Carousels Envelope Mini Album Tutorial

The tutorial for the Cupcake & Carousels Envelope Mini is finally here…it’s another full length tutorial and I hope you all have fun recreating it! 

I made this album as part of my team blog hop and you can view the original post and go hopping HERE. I love how well the papers match the coordinating cardstock pack – it really makes the colours pop off the page. If you make this project, I’d love to see what you have made!

Hostess Code – I reward my customers when they shop with me

All orders over £25 (before shipping & handling) & using this month’s Hostess Code at checkout will receive a Hostess Gift from me. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code – you can claim your own Stampin’ Rewards.
All online orders under £150 will collect Stampin’ Rewards (free product) throughout the month. Your order is processed as normal, with it being delivered to your house as usual, so nothing changes there. But, at the end of the month, I close off the code and work out how many people have placed orders and divide the total Stampin’ Rewards between them all, making sure that everyone has exactly the same products.

However, the more people who join the code, the higher the rewards go because everyone is pulling together towards a common goal!

This month’s code can be found at the top right of this page or on the home page

  1. Wow Helen. outstanding Job on this album.. Love it and the colors are great.. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to more creations in the future.. The C6 envelopes you used are they the same as the medium envelopes in the US? My envelopes don’t say c6 they are 5 3/4 inches x 4 3/8 inches ( 14.6 x 11.1 cm).are they the same as you used in your project?

    • Hi Shari, I’m just wondering if the US catalogue has C6 envelopes? They measure 6 3/8″ x 4.5″ or 11.4 x 16.2 cm. Can C6 envelopes be found in the shops over there? X
