Let's Go Shopping!

Hello! Here's a little shopping tote I made as another entry in the MFT Guest Designer challenge. This idea just popped in my head yesterday afternoon, so I got busy right away (I have to do that or the ideas are gone -- must be an over-40 thing). Anyway, I think it turned out so cute! I got the template for this little tote from my SU! upline a couple years ago. It's 3 1/4 inches high, 3 inches wide, and 1 inch deep, and is made from an 8x6 piece of cardstock. I'll try to give you the template later on. I think it's really designed to be a mini note card holder, but I thought it would be cute filled with gift cards since it looks like a shopping bag! :)

The Regal Rose layer is Cuttlebugged with the Spots & Dots embossing folder. I colored the image with Copics. The tabs were made with a 3/4" circle punch. Of course I had to add a little bling to the bag! I crinkled and cut some more Regal Rose cardstock to be the filler.

Since this post has a shopping theme, I want to tell you about a sale Christine is having at All That Scraps. She needs to make room for new items, so some things have to go! Here are the deets from Christine:

We need to move out some of the slower moving items that are taking up space.
We are starting out at 25% on most items and will continue to discount them until they are gone. But once they are gone they are gone, they will not be restocked.
Some of the items are Cuttlekids, Disney Cuttlebug, Pattern Paper, Tins, Alterable Purses,
Cardstock (Bazzil and Prism), Big Shot.
Instead of having the items in the main category they have all been moved into the *Sale*Sale*Sale* category to make it easier to find the items that are on sale.
We will also have 4 or 5 -8 1/2" x 11" Paper Racks that we will be getting rid of. We will sell them for $45.00 plus you pay shipping. If you are interested please let me know.
Make sure to check back as we will be adding items.
New items in stock:

Hello Sunshine
Scor Pal

Coming Soon:

KI Memories Blooms
My Minds Eye Garden Party
K & Co Wild Saffron
Imaginesce's new collections
Adirondack Pigment Pads

Well, that's all for today! I hope you have something fun planned for your weekend! Chris and I are going to a wedding this afternoon, then tonight we're bowling with some friends from work. I haven't bowled in forever -- hopefully I don't hurt myself! ;) Have a great day -- thanks for the visit!
