Link 4 Pink Party!!!

Its breast cancer awareness month and my good friend Celeste invited me to link up for PINK! You can check out her blog here for further details!

This is my first ever Toilet Paper Tube mini album... I saw many ideas online on how to do this..Ive been saving them for other projects but when I saw this, I knew I had to try this..

I used my cricut for the beautiful title.. a rhinestone glitzy dragonfly
sticker, creative imaginations, stampin up flower stamp(layered and beaded)
Heidie grace chipboard, Tshirt pearl paint. 
at this angle you can see why flattened toilet paper tubes
make great pockets for mini albums. 

stampin up cardstock stickers, Bo Bunny, Martha punch,
Heidie Grace chipboard hearts,

Stampin Up Cardstock sticker, bo Bunny paper, Heidie
grace chipboard.

velum quote, stayzon black ink, recycled actate for tag,
sizzix tag die cut, Maya road ribbon rose and twine, 

note: I took the pics in early morning light..some came out true to color, some did not...

For instructions on how to make the toilet paper tube mini album you can view you tube..There are many great artists out there showing these ideas...
too many to list..

the basic idea is you flatten the tubes out  with a bone folder. paint it..then punch holes for the rings or ribbon making sure they are even and lined up..then you can add your own paper yumminess.


  1. OH WOWZERS.... You really out did yourself... I love love it... Thank you sooooo much for linking up with us.

  2. did an awesome job. It's overwhelming to me....just a beautiful beautiful piece of art is what it is.
