Club Scrap "Picnic" Blog Hop

Welcome to the Picnic Blog Hop!

 If you have lost your way you can return to Club Scrap Creates blog to see the full list of all the talented bloggers participating today.

So every year my family goes away for a week to what I loving refer to as "camp". Think "Dirty Dancing" just not as glamourous and there is no Patrick Swazye! It is my favorite week of the year as I do not have to cook or make a bed and it is the one week of the year I can do nothing and not feel any guilt! Every year I bring my scrap stuff and have time for myself.  
We are currently at "camp" and I have made this mini toilet paper roll album. This is an awesome project my friend Judy found and it is quick to put together. If you would like to make one you can find it here. I can tell you that my pictures do not do this project justice.

The Club Scrap Picnic Kit was the perfect collection for an album of camp pictures. I just LOVE this kit. It is so bright and happy and perfect for summer pictures! 

This is the album from the front.
Inside you create a paper hing system and then the pages are flattened toilet paper rolls that are just covered with paper.






Since you use toilet paper rolls each page is a pocket that can hold a tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Your next stop on the hop is to Debby's Blog.
Wishing you a wonderfully creative day!

Anne Marie

I like the idea of "Camp" ~ sounds like such fun...and it would be better if PS was there :)

Love your album and it's cool to use the toilet paper rolls as the pages!

Adorable project and what a great way to recycle something we always have in the house.

I did a toilet paper roll project several years ago. mine was held together with D rings. I like the variation of the closed book look! very nicely done.

What a clever album, Anne Marie! I really like how the TP rolls create little pockets for all kinds of treasures. Thanks for sharing!

Well, I've had to collect lots of wine corks for my crafting projects. I guess it's time to collect the toilet paper rolls, too. But the wine cork collecting is much more fun! What a terrific project . . . thank you for sharing!

How fun, I have never heard of flattening the toilet paper rolls for an album, but yours looks great!
Thanks for a new idea (to me).

Clever album! Love the idea of upcycling toilet paper rolls. I'll have to do this with my sister in-law.
