I Love Travel Tote

Travel in style with this adorable paper tote filled with fun goodies featuring the brand new "I Love Travel" Collection! Inside you'll find old-fashioned board games, cute luggage tags and a mini journal for jotting down memories.

To begin I crafted this simple luggage-style tote from Doodlebug Bon-Bon cardstock.  Here are the measurements for creating the 7" X 4.5" X 1.75" tote:
Cut cardstock to 12"X7".  Score the 12" length at 4.5", 6" and 7.5".  Fold along score lines and then corner round all four corners.  Next make two tabs from the same brown cardstock that measure 2.5"X3.75".  Score the strips at 1" and 2.75".  Attach to the front and back of the piece to create the sides of the tote:

For the front and back I cut two strips of Ladybug cardstock to 3/4" X 4.5"  and adhered them as shown:
The handles were made from a loop of the same 3/4" X 12" Ladybug cardstock. I used large brads to attach the handles.



Next I crafted a couple of "board" games that were laminated so that they could be written on with a dry-erase maker and then easily erased. 




Using the sheet of  4X6 journal cards I made this quick and easy booklet:


To create the booklet I scored each journal card approximately 1/4" from the left edge. After prepping a cover from a 8.5"X 6.25" sheet of patterned paper, the cards were attached  along the scored tab.



Finally I used these adorable 3X4 cards and turned them into luggage tags.  The fronts were embellished with enamel shapes and sweet bows.

You can find more ideas for board games and even printables that can be printed onto patterned paper! So whether one is traveling by train, plane or automobile, this cute tote makes a great gift and keepsake!

Thank you for joining me today!

  2. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

Welcome and Happy New Year!
Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
