Tote-ally Brilliant!!!!

Blimey o'riley, what a busy week. I've not had much time for crafting which I don't like. I love making and I usually find some time to relax and craft.
Last night I was up until 1 o'clock playing with the new Tutorial from Becky over at Inking Idaho. It is gorgeous and hopefully I have done it justice, there are somethings I'd like to do differently but I think for my first creation, I like it!!!!!

This is the Tote Closed. It has three small but useful pockets on the front. These can hold a bookmark, chocolate bar, note pen or gift tags. Or I could see this being made for a child in very bright colours and using one of the front pockets to hold a set of crayons.

There is a larger pocket on the back of the Tote, this holds a notebook and pen, or a set of 3x3 love notes, again if made for a child, perhaps some laminated game cards, such as O's and X's, hangman, etc.

The colour combination I used is new to me and something I'm determine to continue. I would never usually go for different colours, I'm strictly a monochromatic kind of crafter, but am trying to step out of my comfort zone.

The Stamp Set comes from the recent Sale-A-Bration Offer. Its Botanical Blooms. I used paper piecing and 2 step Stamping techniques.

This is a really cute book mark which is also included in the Tutorial.

The Tote then opens up to reveal 6 cards, again all include in the Tutorial.
The Colour combination Is Bashful Blue and Perfect Plum.
Hope you like it, leave me a comment and let me know.
