Trial Run

Happy Easter! Hope you all had a wonderful day and that Easter Bunny left you lots of yummy eggs! I found a tutorial on splitcoaststampers for a tote bag a few mths ago and I gave it a go and only just found the photos lol! It was super easy and I used scrap scrapbook paper by Making Memories for my first go and some Kaisercraft white cards. I made it into a set which is the tote bag(which holds 6 cards and envelopes), matching cards, paperclip book mark(I found these 75mm paperclips from my local newsagency for $1.72 for 25. They are a little shorter than the ones from America, but I was happy with my 'find' lol) and used some cuttlebug dies in my BIGkick and a binder(bulldog) clip. I was over the moon with how the tote bag turned out! So this was my trial run lol! I've also altered the most sweetest little mailbox, which I'll post soon. Our new Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalogue comes out on the 1st of April. I have not yet received my box of catty's but some other lucky demo's have received them and I'm sooooo envious lol! All I want to know is... "Is the scallop punch in our new catty" lol?! I've got my fingers cross that they'll come after Easter! Till next time, enjoy your yummy Chocolate Easter eggs, Take Care and keep Smiling, (((hugs))) Kylie XX
