A Tilda Mini Album for Spring

Good Sunday morning, everyone! Easter is only a week away already and Springtime has arrived in Southeast Texas already. We have already had to cut the grass, for heaven's sake! It didn't even seem like we had a winter as I only had to turn on the heat a handful of times and, of course, there was no snow to be seen anywhere close to here.

If you recall, I am a guest designer for Marker Pop this month and today I have my second project ready for you. I made a cute mini album with several Tilda stamps and some paper towel rollers that I flattened and cut to the size of toilet paper rollers. There are 14 pages in all and each of the 7 tubes holds a tag that can be used for photos, journaling or additional embellishment.

The Tilda on the front of the mini is from a stamp I bought at Marker Pop called Tilda with Little Pocket. Isn't she a cutie? The other Tildas were stamped and sent to me by my card-making friend and colorist extraordinare, Tracy Valure, about a year ago. I used some of the ones she sent me on cards and other projects but I still had a few left over and thought this would be a great way to use them up and make something really cute while I was at it. WARNING: There are a LOT of pictures... even more than I normally post. It is a mini album after all! LOL So here we go!
