Kaisercraft Scrapyard Toilet Roll Album

Today I am showcasing an album I created using the Scrapyard Collection by Kaisercraft and fitting with the theme of the month at Artfull Crafts - the base of the album is toilet rolls!

First you need to collect your toilet rolls which did not take me long in our house of five! I then flattened them as much as I could with a scorer tool. Another idea would be to flatten them under a heavy object for a few days. I then covered both flattened sides with cardstock and Scrapyard patterned paper. Then I added my embellishments.  These include Tim Holtz idea-ology items, charms, doily, twine and more. The Inkling I used was the Steam punk one that is so cool. I coloured it with a water brush dipped in ink.

I created the tags that fitted into the flattened rolls with matching cardstock and Scrapyard patterned paper. I then inked the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress ink. The album is held together with a binding ring decorated with ribbon.

Here is the cover:

Here are the decorated pages:

I really enjoyed this album and love this collection by Kaisercraft.  Thanks for looking!
Have a great weekend!
