Project #1
Splash of Summer
Two 12 x 12 Premade Pages

Patterns by Little Scraps of Heaven Designs

Bear from "Pool Time Fun" Set

Altered "Castle" Pattern (I change the color of paper to make it a sand castle)

Page Design by Corrine Paul

Project #2
Pool Time Fun
Two 12 x 12 Premade Pages

Page Design by Corrine Paul
"Pool Time Fun" Pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs

Project #3
Under the Sea
Mini TP Roll Album

Past Freebie "Shell" Pattern by Little Scraps of Heaven Designs

Space for 6 photos w/4 pull out photo and/or journal tags

I paint the toilet rolls w/acrylic paint before I go to bed and let them dry overnight. I usually paint all I have at the time and plan more than one TP roll mini album design.

I choose coordinating paper, cardstock and embellishments.

Custom made flowers made for the cover.

I chose silk leaves and fibers with colors and textures for a "sea weed" look.

Mini Album Design by Corrine Paul

If you like my style, order your customized items today. I design any size albums & any size premade pages for any theme. Depending on your needs I could design and create 1 page or an entire album. For customized orders please contact me privately for price quotes and details needed to place your order.

Thank You~

  21. Thank YOU so much!! You can Google Toilet Paper Roll albums and find tutorials and YouTube videos to help you make a few for yourself or give as gifts. Everyone has their own technique and style. They are QUICK, EASY and FUN to make! I may even have a tutorial somewhere on my blog that inspired me.

  38. Wow! Your TP roll album is awesome!!
    mdowner at swnebr dot net

  39. I love your layout you really have summer in them they are awesome.

  40. Wow, have you ever given me a great thing to do with all those TP rolls that just get tossed out every week! Although I have to admit.... I am not sure I will ever get even close to making one look like yours! They are fantastic! Thanks for sharing! Oh BTW... long time follower of your blog, but I am a new face book groupie of yours! LOL! Shelley

  41. Great projects. Your toilet paper tube album is neat. Thanks for showing us how you made it.

  42. I love how your toilet paper roll albums came out! I think of you every time I see a commercial for toilet paper on tv now,lol! I'm so glad to be a follower of your blog now, too!

  43. You all really have to try ONE TOILET ROLL mini album. Seriously, they take hardly any time and hardly any supplies cause they are so small.

    If you want to make them even "cuter" sew the mats with zig zag, it makes the POP and it gives the mini an nice look. A few flowers and some ribbon and it is dressed up enough to give away. LOL

    I think a baby album would be AWESOME!!

    I also think that kids would have a HAY DAY with this and whatever they made would be CUTE!!

    Have FUN and thank you for all you WONDERFUL comments. You have made my day and possibly my entire week!!

    THANK YOU!!!
