PTI Blog Hop

If you know me and/or read my blog at all then you know how much I love Papertrey Ink. Seriously, when I get any money PTI is usually where I spend it! This is my first time participating in Papertrey Ink's monthly blog hop and I'm very excited. Now, 0n to the project.

I made a tote like this last Mother's day and it's the first thing I thought of when I bought the new Friends 'til the End stamp set. I love how this little tote turned out and it holds 3- 5 cards (unless your cards are really layered and lumpy) with envelopes. I gave a version of this tote to my mother last year with a few cards, envelopes and a gift card tucked inside. The creator of this tote pattern is Leslie Miller and you can find instructions on her blog, Running with Scissors.


Supplies by Papertrey Ink. Here's what I used: White, Raspberry Fizz and New Leaf cardstock, Friends 'til the End stamp set, True Black, Raspberry Fizz and Landscape Pallette Ink, New Leaf grosgrain ribbon, White vintage button, Scor Tape. I also used the Word Window Punch from SU.
