While previewing the new Summer Mini Catalogue last month, I was inspired by the new Designer Series Paper pack, Beyond the Garden, to create some beach themed items.  Beach bags immediately came to mind! 

I always seem to be collecting a new beach bag every year (mostly cause I can’t find the previous year’s one!)  and I love the fun bright colors they all have and of course, their capacity to hold lots of items for a day outdoors.  So, to stay true to the purpose of a real beach tote bag, I created these three replicas keeping space in mind.

All three totes are large and strong enough to be used as gift bags for that special summer or Hawaiian themed party:

*** Flower Rimmed Wild Wasabi tote  measures 8 1/2″ wide at the top, 7″tall excluding handle (11″with handle) and is 2″ deep

*** Daffodil Delight Nautical Striped tote measures 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ and is 2″ deep

*** Round Clutch Handle tote measures 7 1/2″ long, is 6″high and 1 1/2″ deep

Beach Tote Ensemble Tutorial includes:

15 pages of written instructions and measurements to complete all three projects

40 step by step photos to assist you in recreating the projects

$3.99 CAD

The tutorial will be emailed to you as a PDF file following your purchase through PayPal.

TTFN!

There may not be any stamping involved in this project, but Stampin’ Up! sure provided us some great products to play with in the Occasions Mini Catalogue! 

I admired all the tote bags I saw at Leadership back in January, and decided I needed to try making a few.  Did you know that you could create a tote bag without cutting and carefully measuring pieces?  Yes you can!  You cut out scallop squares with the Big Shot and sew them together.  I used the Springtime Vintage Designer Fabric found on page 16.  The colors in this fabric as well as the matching DSP, are delicious!

I’d love to hear if you have tried  using either of the fabric offerings in the Occasions Mini.  What have you used it for?

TTFN!

I’m obviously in a fun and festive frame of mind, ’cause here’s another game for the holidays!

 

Pictionarygame1

This is the game tote complete with finger holes for carrying and ribbon to keep it closed.

Pictionarygame2

When opened, the game pieces, tucked into their own pouches, are revealed.

 

Pictionarygame3 

The game tote idea was a holiday Ustamp project created by Jacque Craig.  It was originally a gift tag tote, but in my mind, it became another fun family holiday game.  The pockets on the inside are perfect for all the pieces needed to play Pictionary. 

I found some matchbox notepads from a craft store and simply covered them in Merry Moments dsp.  Very fast!!

I then CASEd myself and used my gift receipt/wishlist holder found here and turned it into the game clue folder.  I typed several festive and holiday themed words onto strips and placed them in the four envelopes.  I created 4 categories for my clues:  food, decorations, VIPs, and songs.  Examples of words I used are:  mistletoe, fruitcake, angel, and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (that will be hard to draw I think!!)

I finished the project with a simple hourglass timer and some pencils – all done!  After decorating the gingerbread trees tonight, I hope to find a little time to play a few rounds with our two youngest girls. 

If you find time to make one for yourself or to give as a gift, I would love to hear about it!!

TTFN!
