Always sad to say goodbye... to stamping stuff that is! :o)

Before moving I would store all of my stamping supplies in these two totes. Now I have a place in our office to keep my things and I don't need these anymore. As I only used them to store my supplies they are in excellent condition, you can see in the photos below. I hate to sell them but I need to. I purchased both the rolling tote and the handled tote in Maryland, brand new, from an A.C. Moore Crafts Store. They have been wonderful!

I will post them on Craigslist and Ebay, but I wanted to see if anyone that visits my blog would like them first. My measurements are as accurate as can be and the adorable model seen in a couple of photos does not come with the totes. :o) I am asking $75 for the larger rolling tote (it was originally $120) and $45 for the smaller one (originally $80). I am in Hawaii so shipping would be extra, but if you happen to live on Oahu I can meet you somewhere. Please e-mail me at if you are interested. Thanks for looking. (I'm also going to post some stamp sets I have for sale, but this post was long enough.) :o)


It rolls on wheels

18" wide

18" tall

13" deep

The handle telescopes to 37" off the floor and works just like a suitcase. The wheels are great they are the kind you'd find on rollerblades and the handle works like a charm.

There is a large pocket on the front flap, and two small pockets and one long pocket on each side.

This is the front open.

5 slots each 15-1/2" long, 2" tall, and 11-1/2" deep (there is space between the edge of the slots and the front flap so as to accomodate 12"x12" paper without damaging the paper).

On the inside of the front flap there are 2 mesh pockets.

Open the top flap and there is another large mesh pocket as well as 4 containers.

The 3 containers in the back measure 2 at 5x4-1/2, and 1 at 3-7/8 x 4-1/2. All three are 4" tall

The long front container measures 14-1/2 x 4-1/2 and is 4" tall. It is divided in the middle. (see photos below). There is a small spot on the inside of the long container where some stamp cleaner spilled. You have to look inside to see it and it doesn't affect the container at all. I think this is the only spot on the whole piece that is not in perfect shape


This tote has handles to carry it on your shoulder.

It measures :

15-1/2" wide

13" tall

7" deep

The handles are 13" from the top.
There is a large pocket in the front.
This is how it looks with the front open. There are two large plastic/vinyl pockets with velcro closures each are 10-1/4" tall x 13-1/4" long. There is a zippered pouch 13-1/4" long.

These containers stack up onto eachother.

The 2 larger ones on the top measures 5"x 4-7/8". The skinny one measures 2-3/8" x 4-7/8". All three are 5-3/8" tall.

They sit on top of 5" x 13-3/8"x 1-5/8" container. That also has a drawer that pulls out. The drawer measures 12-7/8" x 4-7/8"x 2-1/2".

There are side pockets on the inside.

The right side has slots for 10 pens. and another vinyl pocket below the slots.

The left side has 4 larger slots for scissors etc. and a mesh pocket below it.

Stampin' Up! Regional Swaps

On the 21st I went with my mother to a Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar. It was great. Lots of ideas and wonderful swaps. Below are the 3 items my mother and I brought to share. We took 40 of each item, traded them with other attendees, and came home with some amazing cards.
I'll post some of my favorites this week.

3D item: Egg and Lollipop Flower
To make the egg and lollipop. Cut out 2 ovals the same size, one in Kraft and one in acetate. Cut the top of the acetate egg so it looks like a broken egg. Sew the two ovals together with a sewing machine. I stamped in white craft ink and embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat tool. The lollipop is covered with a scallop and circle punches to imitate a flower. I cut the green strips with my table top trimmer and then crinkled them in my hands. Stuff the green paper strips and the lollipop in the egg. Lastly, add the small flowers to the front of the embossed image.

Supplies (All SU!) Stamps- Priceless; Ink- Whisper White craft, barely banana classic(some lollipops had cameo coral centers); Paper- Kraft, Garden Green, Cameo Coral, Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana, Cameo Coral, acetate; Accessories- clear embossing powder, heat tool, scallop punch, paper piercer, trio flower punch, 1-1/4 circle punch, sewing machine and white thread.

Hippo Card
Supplies (All Stampin' Up!): Stamps- Pun Fun, Polka Dots (on the SU! dormant list available until June 30th); Paper- Basic Gray, Pixie Pink, Very Vanilla, Kraft; Ink- Basic Gray, Close to Cocoa; Accessories- Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Glue Pen, Pixie Pink Marker, Aqua painter, Kraft Taffeta ribbon.

Skunk Card

The regional was so much fun and spending that time with my mom was even better. We made 6 projects which I'll post this week. Every one from SU! was great and had so many fun things to demonstrate. It made me really excited to come home and stamp.
