I am a SAHM of a beautiful young lady, and wife to a husband who allows me my passion of paper crafting.
Take a stroll thru my blog, I hope you enjoy what you see *Ü* and if you do, please leave a comment.
I am addicted, I can't help it. My name is Joani and I'm a paper-aholic. It's awful. I love paper, I love paper, I love paper!! And I love to create things with it!! The problem is I don't have the room for everything that I create, and now with Danielle being out of school she can't give it all to her friends. So look out, you just may get it in the mail Ü
I actually made these for a friend ~ so I don't have to stick them on a shelf and dust them.
Are these not the cat's pajama's?? I just love them!! I found the template on SCS a while ago. The are a creation from Leigh O'Brien called her Toteally Totes. When I see something that I like I print it out and make a template out of thin chipboard ~ this one I didn't as you can see. I printed it out directly on to the card stock, and you can see the score lines ~ that's why I sponged the ink around them. But they are still adorable!
The paper used to make these is Pink Passion, Glorious Green and Orchid Opulence. I inked up the totes with Glorious Green, Pink Passion and Lovely Lilac and used the Vintage Vogue set. Leigh's instructions called for brads but I prefer eyelets when making something like this - I feel that they have better staying power. So I used my crop-a-dile and some big eyelets to hold it all together. You like?? And they are perfect to cold little trinket's or a little chocolate - something for everyone Ü
I'm working on some more projects to show you - but I do have some Halloween cards in the works also. So I will be back tomorrow with something else! Have a super great day!
