Daisy, Daisy give me your answer do

I swore I would NEVER become a scrapper, then

I swore I would NEVER buy a die cut machine, then

I swore I would NEVER make cards, then

I swore I would NEVER stamp, then

I swore I would NEVER make a toilet roll mini.
Boy, back then I sure did a lot of swearing, didn’t I?
That was then, this is NOW.

I am a Scrapper, I have a Vagabond, I have just started making cards, and I have amassed an obscene amount of stamps.

Isn’t it amazing how time changes everything?

Haven’t done a toilet roll mini YET, but am saving rolls.
UPDATE: I spent yesterday in the bathroom and am proud to say that I have finally crossed over to the other side - insert theme music from The Twilight Zone here.

Last year I found three pages of bicycle paper at Mike's and have been saving them for something special. What is more special than my first TP album? 

Pages 2 and 3 - although the pages are tiny, I packed them with all the bicycle junque I could find in my stash.
Pages 4 & 5
Pages 6 & 7 are my favorites. I cut the picture of the guys on the tandem bike in half and then added a wheel to each page.  
Lots of space for pictures and journaling.

There are no shortages of Toilet Roll Mini Album videos on YouTube. But if you are a novice in the bathroom arts, like me, check out Scrapsaturdays four videos. Monica is a great teacher. Have you made a toilet roll mini? Would you like to?



  1. This is a fabulous album!! Much better than my first mini! you should be proud. (oh, and welcome to the other side! :) ) sd connie

  2. GREAT album! The bicycle papers are great- I would've saved them a long time, too- they would've sat in my box of 'too good to use, just admire and wash your hands before touching-box.'

    I want a Vagabond!

  3. This is just gorgeous! :) And I've never actually been interested in making a TP anything ... but now that I see that nice kraft .... LOL :) Never say never, right?

  4. Ellen - this is fab! Love the paper, and bicycle theme. I love making these TP albums they are strangely addictive in their petiteness. I am working on two at the moment.
    Hope you have a Fab week.
