Card Storage Tote...

While blog surfing during the summer I found this amazing card storage tote on Jo Dumbleton's blog. After admiring it for a while I decided to buy the tutorial from a talented SU demo in Australia called Lynda Moss. The tutorial is easy to follow and good value at AU$8.50. 

For my version I have used some gorgeous patriotic papers from Craftwork Cards called Anglomania that came in a goody bag kit HERE. The cardstock was also in the kit and I have added AC ribbons from my stash. Inside are index cards with calendars on so that you can write the dates of all the birrthdays you need to remember. There is space to store cards up to 5 inches wide, so A6 or 5x5" cards (I think I will make a bigger one using 8x8" chipboard for the covers....then I will be able to fit my cards in).

I have been searching through my stash to find suitable chipboard, as Georgia is begging me to make her one, and I also think I want to make one for my Sister as she has so many dates to remember....and maybe more...I am addicted.

Very cute, Caz....I just dump my cards into a box...LOL
I would need the big one as most of my cards are 6 in x 6 in. :)
