Baby Girl Totebag

My friend Karen (Snippets) is hosting this week's Splitcoaststampers Technique Lovers Challenge TLC623 Totebag!

Lucky for me..I just made a Baby Girl Totebag yesterday for an upcoming baby shower :-)  I used the video that Karen shared on her Snippets Blog for a recent bag that she had made.

Here is my Totebag.....

Here another photo showing the Card and hand knit hat that will be inside the bag.

This photo shows the inside of the card front where I made a pocket for a gift card.

Here is the link for the Chic Totebag for Card Giving by LeeAnn Greff.  I followed her tutorial exactly.  I used a retired SU designer series paper and Regal Rose Cardstock. The inside of the bag shows off the back side of the baby shower designer paper.

The sentiments for my card were from SU "Cuddles and Kisses" (ret).  I inked with Archival Black ink and fussy cut.  I added SU "White Perfect Accents" to the handles for embellishment.  The cute little baby shoes I found in my stash.  I used scraps from my bag for my card front die cutting all 3 layers with my Memory Box "Stitched Rectangles".

A really fun project that looks so cute with white tissue paper inside and with the hat tucked in the tissue.  My card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4",  but was too bulky so I made an envelope that was meant for a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" card.  Worked perfectly.   My card is tucked into the totebag also.

Thank you again Karen for your inspiration and your fun TLC623 Challenge.  Be sure if you want to make this tote bag to go to Karen's "Snippet" blog and the SCS technique challenge for lots of inspiration.  Happy bag making my friends...Hugs..

Supplies: All the supplies listed in the video link above and my supplies that I have added to my description.
