Patting myself on the back...

My card box and cards will be in the Xyron ad for the July issue of CardMaker magazine.  I originally made this box for a QVC project but it didn't work for that, so Xyron used it for this ad. Yay, me!  Did I mention it's a full page ad?  LOL!

Card Tote

This is a tote idea that I got from my favorite Stampin Up blogger, Becky Roberts, at Inking Idaho.  She always has such great ideas and she is such an inspiration to me.  I used the North Shore paper collection from Scenic Route and lots of Bazzill Basics cardstock on this project. I have several pictures of this project so you can see all the goods that went with it. 

This is a matchbook calendar and a sticky note pad that I created and placed in the large pocket on the side of the tote.

On the other side of the tote are three small pockets. In the first pocket, I created two small bookmarks.  The middle pocket contains a small candy bar that I made a custom wrap for.  The third pocket has four small altered gel pens.  

The inside of the tote has two transparent pockets (they are hard to photograph) that are there to hold the cards and envelopes in place.  I made five cards for this project.

I can always tell when the weather is starting to get nice because I feel more like being outside than being inside creating projects.  Happy Spring!
