Toilet Paper Roll Mini (can you believe it)

I just completed this mini today. Omg I have seen so many tutorials on this type of mini I just had to try it. So its the famous Toilet Paper Roll Mini. What you do is take your old toiler paper rolls once the toilet paper is used. Then you flaten them. I painted the the rolls first with blue and pink paint. Then adhere DT to them to cover on each one back and front. I use DCWV paper BE MINE (so pretty). Cut out tags and flowers from George Basic Shapes. As you can see the paper is so beautiful I didnt want to add anything extra to each page. I havent figured out what pictures to put in them yet but Im sure Ill find something. Thanks again for looking.

Tinker Bell and Friends Book

Good Evening my blogger buddies. Here is anothe character book that I just finished for a client of mine. Boy o boy they keep me busy, busy, busy. This book here can hold up to 32 pictures. There is room on each matting block as well as on the back and front of each tag. I used the cricut Tinker Bell and Friends Cart with a little Serenade for the swirls (I love this Cart.) A few of you have asked how I do these books and to be honest I just wing it the whole way thru, but this time I managed to write down some notes. First of all I dont use DS or Gypsy. The the book is 7x14in (which I cut myself and not on the cricut. Each character is cut at 6 1/2. The Tink name was cut from the Storybook font cart. Basically I cut the character and then adhere them to the book flaps once they are covered with DT. Then I embelish and add tags ribbon etc. Ooops forgot the tags were cut from Planton School book at 4 1/2. I think I got it all in there. I've also been asked to do a video on making them. Stay tuned I plan to do that in the near future. As always thanks for looking. Comments appreciated

Baby Blue and Elmo Too

Well its Tuesday everyone and I just completed another mini book for a client. I call this Baby Blue and Elmo Too. Its for a newborn baby boy. I changed the color of Elmo because I thought it would look so cute with the theme I was going for and well what do you know, cute cute cute. I showed my husband the book and he thought it was
great, awesome, one of my best. As you can see from the photos I added alot of tags. Some of them have boy quotes on them and the others are blank for journaling or pictures could be added in the space. The cartridges I used for this mini was Seasame Street, Planton School Book, Storybook, New Arrival, and Serenade. I hope you enjoy looking.

Batman Mini Book

Hi again everyone its me with another character book I created "BATMAN". This book like so many of my others was a speacial request from a co-worker for her grandson. Now this book I must admit took some timmmmmmeee. What I mean by that is...this cartridge has alot of little pieces to glue together and it was very very time consuming and at times frustrating. All in all I got it done. I love how it turned out. What do yo think?
