Carol Doak’s Keepsake Frame Cards & Free Block Projects

Carol Doak's Keepsake Frame Cards

Carol Doak's Keepsake Frame Cards

We are super excited that Carol Doak’s Keepsake Frame Cards will be hitting store shelves this month. The set includes four blank 5” x 7” cards with envelopes that are made from beautifully textured, handmade paper that is bright white, archival, and extra heavy weight.

The cards include a debossed 3″ square window which makes them perfect for framing and displaying your miniature works of art, including quilt blocks, surface design pieces, mixed media collages, paintings, drawings, and even photos. Add a handwritten greeting on the inside, and it  makes a fantastic personalized gift for any occasion.

As a special bonus, Carol Doak has created a bunch of 3″ quilt blocks that go perfectly with these cards and we’ll be posting the FREE instructions for the blocks over the next several months here on the blog! So keep an eye out for them and at any time you can visit the Carol Doak’s Keepsake Frame Block projects page to see a complete list of which block projects have been posted to the blog so far. A link to the page appears in the sidebar on the blog homepage under “Free Project Collections”.

I did however experience some technical points using this website, as I experienced to reload the web site a lot of occasions prior to I may just get it to load correctly.

No longer that I am complaining, but sluggish loading instances instances will very frequently have an effect on your placement in google and can damage your high quality score if advertising and ***********

    I love her first book and have used the blocks in so many projects, I can not wait to see this book, and I love the package block, I think it would make a great gift tag.

    Love the free paper-piecing cards projects, but is the house paper-piece pattern still available as a free download?

    You can find it under the resources then e newsletter sign ups and then click consumers. It was a very hard one – the hardest of them all!

    Thanks so much for these designs. I just posted the link to my quilting group. We have a 4″ ornamentt exahnge jsut starting and these will be perfect. Also we are trying to include both Christmas and and Hanukka so having both designs in one location is great for us.

    I was not going to joing the exchange, but these look easy enough for me to complete on time.

    This is a great cross-project between those who love quilting and those who love making their own cards. A much more special sentiment.
