Mothers' Day Toilet Paper Roll Ablum


Recently, I was trying to find something for Mothers' Day that my buddy teacher and I could teach our students to make for this upcoming holiday. Aymee suggested that we look at the adorable toilet paper roll albums posted on the Cricut Messageboard. Well, we did, and loved them. So, we began collecting empty toilet paper rolls from our students as well as other faculty and staff members at our school. In order for me to be able to teach my students, I had to make one myself. Since I only had short periods of time to spend on these, it took me several days to construct. They are SO MUCH FUN to make. I know our students will enjoy this project too.

The tag in the first pocket is a quote, the tag in the second pocket has a pic of Carter mounted on one side and "Happy Mothers' Day on the other side (he wrote it himself), and the third pocket has a note that I wrote to my beautiful daughter-in-law. She is a great mother. I really appreciate her sharing Carter with us. I plan to give it to her for Mothers' Day.

I hope this little project will inspire to give it a try as well. Be warned, you may be hooked!

See ya later,

Carol :)

Shelby's Book

Here is another boardbook for a cheerleader. Shelby is best friends with Caitlan, so she wanted a cheerleader book too. I used the following Cricut Carts in construction of this book: Everyday PaperDolls, Lyrical Letters, Mickey Mouse. I also used my new SCAL Program.

As you probably remember, the tiger paw is a replica of one that is on our tiger walk. I also want to point out the little iPhone on the paperdoll that has on a dress.

Thanks for stopping by, and do come back soon.

A Book for Cody

I finally had a chance to scrap!!!! Last week was our Spring Break, so I had fun scrapping! Yah!!!

I made this book for a student in my homeroom. His mom and I were Buddy-Teachers for several years. I have worked on it for quite some time (between orders), and I decided last week that I was going to finish it before any other projects. I was going to wait until the end of this school year to give it to him, but I can't. I am too excited about it to keep it to myself! Cody is a fine young man. He is an excellent student and an awesome baseball player! I am so proud of him.

I used Everyday Paperdolls, Lyrical Letters, and Sports Mania Cricut carts along with my new SCAL! That's right! I took the plunge and got the SCAL program. I am still learning how to use it, but with Aymee's help and some playing around I will get much better.

Just click on each pic to get a better view.

Thanks for taking the time to visit,and please come back soon.

Awesome Weather


We have been blessed to experience the most awesome weather lately. The trees have tiny leaves on them, and the grass is beginning to be green. Spring is my favorite time of year!

Well, I haven't scrapped lately due Ron's doctor appts. He will begin radiation treatments as soon as he heals a little more. Hopefully, I will have a chance to get back at it really soon. I miss making books and cards!

Have a great week,
