You've probably seen many versions of the very popular Becky Roberts' Tote-ally Awesome Tote over the past several months. Becky sells the tutorial for this tote, cards & accessories (among other tutorials) on her blog, Inking Idaho. Her tutorials are incredibly detailed and thorough, full color, and super easy to follow. She's a genius!
For our March weSTAMP meeting, we decided to do something a little different by putting the "meeting" aside and make Becky's Tote-ally Awesome Tote. Each weSTAMPer made their own tote with their own selection of designer papers. I had a little trouble with mine. As I've mentioned before, I don't stamp well with others and that night was a prime example. Mine ended up in the trash! Well, Ms. Becky Roberts got wind of it, and got alot of enjoyment out of teasing me about it! It was just the motivation I needed to complete the tote in my own craft space ... alone! I tackled the tote a couple of weeks after our meeting, and was able to get around to completing the cards and accessories last weekend. Becky will be so proud when she sees it !!!
I'll be sending my tote to my mom ... I intended to have it done by Mother's Day ... then by my mom's visit to Phoenix last week. Neither happened but am happy to be mailing it to her now! I didn't stick with one stamp set for my cards and accessories, but did stick with the Parisian Breeze Designer Paper.
The tote opens to hold a collection of greeting cards. I used Parisian Breeze Designer Paper for the inside pockets instead of acetate as demonstrated in Becky's tutorial.Post-It Note Holder, Bookmarks, and Calculator Keychain (altered with Parisian Breeze DP) ...
THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!
