My take on a toilet paper roll mini album

Well, I saw this idea from Ginger at My Sister's Scrapper and thought, what a cool idea. It is not like we all don't have toilet paper rolls in the house, why not! I tried it with the brand we use and found they were too short for the chip board I already had cut from some other project. I would take the same concept and just make mine out of card stock.  I made a tube for each of the tags based on a toilet paper roll.  I did the base layer from Kraft cardstock, layering black cardstock and design paper over that.  The paper collection I used was from My Mind's Eye the Blush collection. I just love the vintage paper and I love pink so it just worked for me. There are 6 pages to this mini and tags in each page.   To the cover I added some I am Roses pink and cream tipped roses to the front cover along with some black bling swirls I had in my stash.  I did color some white seam binding with Lindy's Stamp Gang in Clam Bake Beige.  I added some beads and a crown charm al…

A gift for my beautiful daughter Danielle

I have been watching a lot of YouTube lately of very talented ladies making altered boxes.  I thought to myself, shoot I can do that!  Low and behold, that is what I did.  My daughter, Danielle, has a thing for birds and butterflies.  I thought, what a neat idea, surprise her with one of these altered keepsake boxes.  I went off to Michaels and picked up a couple they were only $4.99, so why not.

I had recently purchased the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea, it has absolutely stunning papers and would be beautiful on this box for her. I started off by painting the wooden box with Americana Enamel paint in Light Buttermilk, then taking one of the papers from the Botanical tea collection, I used the blue stripe for all for of the sides, distressing them and inking them with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Vintage Photo.  On the top, I used a piece of chocolate brown cardstock layering the blue bird paper from the collection, distressing all the edges and tearing the top corner so I could add a piece …

Sunshine Mini Album 6 x 6

Hello & welcome to my blog!

This is a mini album I made using My Minds Eye Sunshine collection.  I really love these papers.  I based this whole mini album on the yellow butterfly I purchased from Angelica at LittleScrapShop on Etsy.  I just fell in love with her hand made butterflies.  The second I found her shop I just knew I had to have some! Of course, I could not get just the yellow ones :) I had to get several other colors as well!  I also found the Sunshine collection (no longer available) from My Mind's Eye and fell in love with the papers.  I made this mini based on a tutorial from a great friend of mine Cathy at So Much Scrap.  She is simply AMAZING!

Since this was one of my first mini albums I needed a starting point.  I really love how it turned out. 

This book has a chipboard cover with painted black edges and covered in design paper from the Sunshine collection.  The flowers I have used are from I am Roses and are sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang starbursts…
