A Gorjuss Tag along Tote
As soon as I saw this great tote on the lovely and super talented Rach's Blog, I knew I wanted to make one to send a gift to a very dear blogging friend, but I had to wait for the stamp kit to arrive, it came on Friday and of course I couldn't wait just had to make it. The fabulous template for the Tag along Tote is available from Papertrey Inks at a very reasonable Price of $5, they have some great templates on their site so it is well worth a visit.
I had a real shock over the weekend, well it was more of a catastrophe than a shock my Copic E00 marker run out without warning, as this is the Marker I use for flesh I thought I wouldn't be colouring up any more of these little beauties until me New markers arrived. But then I had a eureka moment and decided to colour them with Distress Inks instead, I didn't think they really lent themselves to Distress Ink colouring as I felt they should be bold, but I am really pleased with the results. Anyone who lost out on the pre-order of these fabulous little girls Sugar Nellie have a few back on the website, but be quick, you will not regret getting these stamps.
I have filled the side pockets with lots of little crafting goodies and a large reel of ribbon in the other pocket and the cassette of stamps fitted perfectly on the inside (Spot the mistake).

Luckily I had already Coloured this lovely sitting Willow and had her sitting on the top of my desk. I was tidying up my Magnolia Accessories and came across this swing stamp which I haven't used for ages and just knew the two stamps were made for each other.
I have coloured and cut out both stamps the background has been quickly coloured with the lightest blue copic I have on a small piece of card cut to fit behind the swing and the swing was added with glue gel the I glue gelled Willow onto the swing, I wanted the tree branch to overlap the square as i thought it would add interest to the image. The paper is a download, and the gorgeous charm is a pressie from Kathatina (Mwah dear). I just added some hand cut corners and a few pearls, I don't think it needs anymore embellies.
The inside is very busy but I am pleased with it.
Well if you are still here and haven't fallen asleep thanks very much for visiting today
