Lindsay's Stamp stuff TOTE!

I am having a blast making stuff lately! Everything just seems to flow for me...



I wanted to do something different, and I wasn't feeling the Halloween set this week. I'm just feeling off, as usual. Seriously though, go check out the FALL set and the HALLOWEEN -- oh, and don't forget the CROW set at Lindsay's store! She also has some new stuff -- Christmas stuff and some cool sentiments that are new and you should definitely go to her store and shop! (She's always running sales and deals and her stuff is just GGGGREEEEEEEEATTTTTT!)

Details - I used a nice brown bazzzzzilllll (I never know the correct number of z's or l's so I put in extras) for the base for my card tote. Then I cut a block of darker brown to make a border along the top. I found this neato fall leaves patterned paper in my stash from days gone by and cut a strip of it. (If you want directions/measurements for the tote, email me at diana.stout@gmail.com and I'll give you that info.) This tote will comfortably hold 5 or so A2 cards (though I've managed to stuff it full of 10 cards that weren't too fancy). I glued the ribbon in between the tote box and the border thingie. I used one of the leaves from the FALL set (linked above) and did a quick cut around it, then I actually colored it using blots with my ink pads -- creamy brown in the middle and chesnut toward the outside. I matted it with a third brown bazzzzzzillllllllllll cardstock nestie cut and voila! An awesome card tote decorated all autumnally. (If that's not a word I don't want to hear about it - I like it.)

Thanks for looking, now head on over to the other designers' blogs for lots more eye candy, and Lindsay's blog, because she is a total ROCK STAR!
ENJOY!!!!!

That's just FAB-U-LOUS!!!

I wish I had your "gift of gab" on my blog. You're always entertaining. I feel like I'm always 'blah' and 'boring' esp. next to your effervescent personality that shows thru on your blog posts.
