Wasn’t it really fun and easy to make? Well…after much anticipation here comes the second part…THE PAGES! We’ll venture into these beautiful pages and learn how to create them one by one! Let’s get started!     TP STEAMPUNK MINI ALBUM PAGES   The TP rolls are perfect for creating pockets so they are perfect as pages in an interactive mini album.

Pockets, flaps and more… as well as handmade embellishments that will take your breath away. Some of the work is delicate and requires patience but believe me, it’s …


  Inside: how to make a tp steampunk mini album with pocket pages   Do you ever see an object and think “what can I make out of it”? It happens to me all the time and I think it’s a common crafter’s point of view. For sometime now I keep looking at tp rolls and think what a shame to throw these away… there must be something I can do with them…     TP STEAMPUNK MINI ALBUM   As the title say this recycled project has three elements: Recycling TP rolls and using them for crafts.

  Inside: how to craft your paper scraps and make a clever and fast junk journal   I’m not a hoarder! But I’ll admit I hate throwing away paper scraps, even the small ones.

That created another problem of piles of craft paper piles that need using…     WHAT ARE PAPER SCRAPS   This might sounds like a stupid question but the definition of scraps is a subjective definition.

In times like this it’s a little hard to create but I have come to realize I need to force myself to create because it distracts me and helps me with the everyday stress. The best thing to create, while also inspiring yourself is an art journal page with a quite to empower you. This is one of those rare times when I started a project with very little in my head.
