Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's 100 Cricut
Cartridge Blog Hop Day 2 for May
You should of come from my DT sister Heather at:

If not please start at the beginning.

Don't forget to comment on all the blogs for a chance to win
the new Cricut Wild Card 2 Cartridge from My Cricut Craft Room. 
There are so many wonderful ideas on how you can use over 
100 different Cricut Cartridges.

For today I wanted to show you another fun TP album 
I made for my mom's craft night that I teach once a month.

One of the best tricks to get the TP rolls flat it to iron them.
For some reason when you put a hot iron on the TP roll it 
makes them the flattest I have ever worked with.  With this
trick you will never have to worry about them puckering.
For this TP album I used 7 different Cricut Cartridges.

Depending on the size of your TP rolls is what you will cut
your cover paper for plus 1/2 inch for over lay.  My book 
is 4 1/4 X 2 5/8 inches so, I cut my paper at 4 1/4 X 5 3/4 inches.
I used my Bind It All to punch the holes for the wire but, 
you could use a strong hole punch and ribbon to hold the
book together.  You can't tell in this picture but, I added
a flower and butterfly charm to the ribbon. 

For the front page I cut the flowers at 2, 1 1/2 & 1 inches.
The flowers were cut from Accent Essentials on page 55.
I have found that some of the Bling you can buy is to big
for small books like this but, if you cut them into smaller
pieces you can get them to go along way. 

Page 1 is a simple 2 1/2 inch rectangle from Fabulous Finds
on page 104. I added a triangle paper clip and very small Prima
flowers to the corners with a little bling to the center of the flowers.

The butterfly from Page 2 can be found on the April Showers Cricut
Solutions Cartridge.  It was cut at 1 & 1 1/4 inches. I used another 
section on Bling that I cut apart for the trail after the Butterfly. 

Page 3's butterfly can be found on page 30 of the Storybook 
Cricut Cartridge. I cut the butterfly out at 1 1/2 inches. I also
added a little bling to the corners for that extra sparkle.

The envelope on page 4 can be found on the Cindy Loo 
Cricut Cartridge on page 76.  I love this little envelope. 
When you cut it out you even get a little card that goes in
the envelope so you can write something special.  I cut this
envelope out at 3 1/2 inches.

Page 5 is the easiest page because I just cut a 3 1/4 X 2 inch
rectangle and added bling to all the corners.

For page 6 I thought I would go back to the flowers. These 
2 flowers were cut at 1 1/4 & 1 1/2 inches from the Plantin 
Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge. Here is some more of the green
bling that I cut up.  I love how it adds a trail to the flower.  I 
also added a light yellow brad to the center of the flower.

I love the shape of this oval on page 7.  I found it on the Storybook
Cricut Cartridge on page 49 and cut it at 3 inches. 

I wanted to leave Page 8 open for pictures, journaling or what 
ever you wanted to fill the page with.  I added 3 small pearls to 
each of the 3 corners and an enamel flower square to the last

I love making (what I call) insert cards for the ends of the TP 
albums.  You can add pictures, journaling, gift cards just about
anything you would like to.  The cards are cut to fit the TP rolls. 
Mine were cut at 3 3/4 X 2 1/2 inches and the flowers on the ends
were cut using the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cricut Cartridge. 
I would have to say that the flowers would fall into the More section
of this Cartridge.  TBBM is one of my Favorite Carts!!  You can find
the flowers on page 107 but, to get them to match when you glue 
them to both sides of the insert you need to Flip one of the flowers.  
I had to add a little stickles to the petals that stuck out of the album 
for that extra sparkle on the ends. 

Now start saving those TP rolls and I hope you go make your own 
album. Because I would really love to see how your turn out.  I 
hope you enjoyed seeing my project for today. Please leave me some 
blog love about what you  though.  I love all types of comments 
especially if you think I should do something differently. And if 
you would like to follow me that would be wonderful.  Because
who doesn't like to have wonderful friends that follow them. 

I have a surprise Blog Candy giveaway.  The only requirements I 
have is I will need a way to get ahold of you so please leave me
an email address if you want to be entered.  I will choose the 
winner on Wednesday May 9th. So, be on the look out for 
your name!!
