Stamped tote

Stamps are not just for use on paper!! Did you know that? LOL It took me awhile to discover that one. I love, love , love Palette inks. In my opinion they are the best basic ink, the perfect combination of water based and dye inks. Fast drying and permanent. Oh you can use them on fabric too!! See- I told you that they are perfect.

You can start with something like this- your basic plain canvas tote- and end up with something like this----
Oh, how cute!! The flowers ( TAC- Petal Pack) were stamped using Palette Inks, and then embellied with Dew Drops. The trim was a bargain I found at Mike's. This is my tote for a new class I started the beginning of the month. We are using the book Road Trip:Five Adventures You Are Meant To Live for our study for the first 6 weeks. The book is about our journey through life and traveling together with our girlfriends. I chose a girlie theme for my bag (others went with a travel theme.) I also made myself a couple of book marks and some things to jazz up my journal. (I will share those later, they are still drying. LOL)
Today's blessings-
* Mom's dialysis has been shortened 15 minutes each visit. That means 45 minutes less each week*
*Time away to renew the body and mind*
*Vacation Bible school prep coming right along*
*2,000 freezer pops in the freezer,just waiting to be given out to those watching our town's 4Th Of July Parade as a Community outreach for the church*
Until later~

That is just adorable! I'll have to check out that book. Is this a group through your church or just a bunch of friends, or a formal book club......?

Oh my goodness! I love it! I just thought about making some totes with my stamps for me and my daughter! I love, love, love tote bags and this is just the incentive I need to go for it! LOL
