CDS Sneak Peeks and Pink Lemonade Tote Challenge IC139

Since you all just love Charlie as much as I do, I thought I would share what a romantic guy he can be! LOL

This is one of the new August releases from Clear Dollar Stamps and it's called Charlie gets Giddy. I wanted to make this an extra romantic, yet fun card so I immediately pulled out some of my new Stampin' Up! in colours in the Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red, along with some Bella Rose Designer Paper. I love how Charlie Stands out among these colours and how they just suit him and his roses so well :)

Card Recipe:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps - Charlie gets Giddy
Paper: Papertrey White, Bella Rose DP, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Watercolour
Ink: SU Markers, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Versa Mark
Accessories: Sewing Machine, Hodgepodge Hardware, Dimensionals, Aqua Painter, Circle Punch, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Designer Label Punch, Dew Drops

This is my very first Bind It All project! I think that it turned out pretty well and it can be used as a sketch journal or a mini scrapbook. I used the CDS August release Leaf Impressions to make this 4x6 book and it is the perfect size for a scrapbook for your purse :) **Clear Dollar Stamps is now carrying Bind it All machines and accessories **


Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps - Leaf Impressions
Paper: My Mind's Eye DP, K&Co DP, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Old Olive, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip

I decided to participate in this weeks SCS Inspiration Challenge because these totes are just so darn cute! This is for IC139 and you can find the details to participate here. This is the tote that I took my inspiration from. I was just going to make a little card using these beautiful colours, but then I got a little carried away and went with a gift card holder with the purse being the main presentation. The main measurement of the purse is 5 1/2" so that it will fit in a 5 1/2" Square envelope for mailing :)

The gift card pouch fits in the sewn together tote and the uses magnets to hold everything together (the flap on the gift card pouch acts as a pull tab to take it out of the tote easily).

Card Recipe:

Stamps: Artful INKables - Sunburst Dandy's and Basic Salutations
Paper: Papertrey White, Basic Grey DP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky
Accessories: Sewing Machine, Small and Large Oval Punches, Sponges, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Button, Satin Ribbon, Magnetic Clasps.
