Sweet Pea Card Storage Tote

Hi all,

Hope you're having a good week and looking forward to the weekend. Just wanted to upload something that I made a while back, but just haven't got round to posting until now. Part of the reason was because I was waiting to finish off the little pocket at the front with a velcro dot or a magnetic clasp and hadn't got round to buying any, so finally, here it is :)

Anyway, my Mum is off to a Macmillan Coffee Morning today and I said she could take this Card Storage Tote for one of the raffle prizes so I included a couple of cards inside too.

I absolutely love the designer series papers I used and co-ordinated the inside with other cardstock colours to match. I will be sad to see the Sweet Pea Paper Stack go once the Mini Catalogue ends on 30 September as these are not continuing to the new Idea Book & Catalogue out on 1 October. Until then, you can get the 48 sheets: 24 double sided designs paper stack at 50% off for just £9.75 until stocks last or until 30 September. The papers are lovely, idea for scrapbooking/mini albums/3D projects and cardmaking. Shh... but I had to buy a couple of these Paper Stacks recently so that I can cut up the papers without worrying that it's my only sheet, lol.

From a tutorial sold by Lynda, here is the card storage tote below:

Card Storage Tote - Side

Card Storage Tote - Back (loving those butterflies)

Think I'll have to make a few more of these soon as they make great gifts for people and I can use up some of those beautiful papers!

If you'd like to order yourself a Sweet Pea Paper Stack , the lovely ribbon that I've used which is also retiring at the end of this month, or any other Stampin' Up! products, then please send an email to alexhau@rocketmail.com and I'll put an order through for you :)

Enjoy your day and see you tomorrow with the 40th birthday card that I sneak peeked earlier.

Bye for now,



  1. Love it - I've got this but haven't made it yet. Must get round to it soon.

  2. What a fabby prize to donate, Alex! I love it! Thanks for giving the link to the tutorial too!

  3. Oh this is stunning Alex! I love the papers you used. Someone is going to be very happy that they won this! x
