SOC's Hot Fun in the Summertime Blog Hop

This weekend marks the official start of summer--days filled with a little travel, fun, and relaxation with family and friends! So to celebrate, I, along with some talented crafters, have teamed up to share projects that display summer fun! Of course, a blog hop isn't complete without blog candy! There will be giveaways on various blogs throughout the hop! Plus there will be a SOC blog hop gift awaiting one visitor!! To be eligible for that prize, you must comment on all the blogs by Mon, June 25 at 11pm EST. From all who are eligible, one lucky reader will be randomly drawn. The winner will be posted on all the participating blogs on Wed, June 27.

For my project I decided to make a Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album.  This is my first attempt at making one.
What I did first was to flatten out five rolls, then I inked the edges and covered them with patterned paper.  I made covers from chipboard and covered them with the same patterned  paper.  I used the Cinch to bind my book.

This is the chipboard cover for my Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album.  I think that this album would made a great mini for a day at the beach.

The inside holds five holders with tags.   Each holder has a place for pictures.

On the back of each pullout is a place to journal and a place for a picture on the other side.

This was really fun and easy to make.  I will be making more.

Now for my blog candy I have an assortment of different items.  To win all you have to do is leave a comment and a way of contacting you.  You do not need to be a follower to win.  The winner will be chose on Tuesday night and be posted on Wednesday June 27, 2012.

Here is the list of all participants:
 Margaret (you are here)
 Kate Blue

Happy Hopping All.

"My one and only" Paper bag Mini Album

I was playing around the other day with some paper bags trying to make a different kind of paper bag album and this is what I came up with. This was so easy and quick to make. I think they would make great gifts. Margaret
