If you are looking for Day 3 of my Hello Kitty Party Week, click HERE. Can you believe I have another post today? I have been such a good blogger lately! When I saw Peachy Keen's current challenge, I knew I had to play along. The challenge is to use a toilet paper roll - toilet paper roll albums are one of my favorite things to make! I gathered 4 toilet paper rolls from my stash (is it sad I have a stash of TP rolls?) and set out to make a Valentine's Day album for my husband. here is what I came up with:
All the hearts in this mini album are punches. The 2 smaller hearts are from Creative Memories, the larger from Stampin Up. The sentiment stamps are all from Whimsical Design's With Love set. The Peachy Keen faces throughout are from Happy Lashes, Boy Mates, wide Eyed Kids and Princess Faces.
This page is the one my daughter chose to be hers. So on one side, a cute little puppy, the other side, a pic of "the girl", as we lovingly refer to her... The heart's face is from my Princess faces.
The pup is from Create a Critter, and the face from my PK Critter faces. The sentiment, is again from Whimsical Designs. I was really impressed with how crisply they stamped!
The next page is for "the boy". The heart right above his picture has another Princess face. All the doodling, throughout the book, is done with my Sakura pens - LOVE them!!
The "XO" is from Smiley Cards cartridge, with faces from the Princess Faces and Boy Mates. The sentiment is another from Whimsical Designs
This last page is for me. I need to find a picture of him and I - I have one in mind, but I need to develop it. The heart has another Princess face one it. Love my PK faces :)
The cute little buggy is cut from Create a Critter, her cute little face is from Wide Eyed Kids and the stamps, from Whimsical Designs. All the paper on the TP rolls is from K and Co's Valentine stack from last year. That paper is beautiful! All the cardstock, came from my scrap boxes.
These are the tags that go in the slots created by the toilet paper rolls. The tags are cut from Sweet Treats. I decided to do a special thing for Mike. I asked the kids all the things they love best about him, and then wrote down what I love about him on three separate tags - kind of like little love letters to my honey. Each of those tags will slip into the roll with our pictures, and when Mike is upset, or down or mad at us, he can look at this little album, and the tags, and hopefully it will make him smile.
