Around Town Tote *Sneak Peek*

I always hate showing you the "super sneak peek" that I usually do for one of the template releases(because I feel like a tease), so I thought I would make another project using the smaller of the two sizes of the new "Around Town Tote". I will still share my *sneak peek*, but you will be able to see the template a little bit better with my second project. I will have those photos below.

For my first project, I used the larger of the two "Around Town Tote" templates. You can find all of the Timeless Templates on the Papertrey Ink website. This one will be available on October 15th. I am really excited to create many of these to get my Christmas gifts wrapped and under the tree. P.S. I don't have my Christmas tree up, yet, if you were wondering! LOL! I used the Believe stamp set, which I love. I have used it every Christmas since it has been released. It is one of my all-time favorites. I also used Fancy Flourishes and Background Basics:Text Style. I told you that I love that set; it is so versatile. I used the Bitty Dot and Green Tea pattern paper that can be found here. I tied the whole thing together, no pun intended, using True Black Saddle Stitch Ribbon.
For my second project, I used all of the same supplies I used on yesterday's post. You can read and see all about it here. I have all of the supplies linked there. I decided to create one more little project to go along with my birthday ensemble. No birthday is complete without a little sugar. I decided to make the smaller of the two totes and I will throw some type of chocolate or something inside.
I promise this will be the last of the projects using this paper, stamp sets and ribbon, etc. I will finally get it all delivered to my friend.
Thanks for fluttering by!
P.S. I realize that I was completely M.I.A. last week and didn't even give an explanation. I was having fun with my kids this week, since they will be going back to school on Monday. We were able to go to the Hogle Zoo and see the new baby elephant. Can I just say precious? It was so fun to see it and I was surprised to see how small it was, even though it was born in August. I should have some extra time this week to create, since the kids will be back to school.

I made a banner after being inspired by yours- I'm happy with it (first attempt & all!), but still will strive to have as much style as yours in the future! :)
Thanks for the inspiration!

"Believe" is one of my all time favorite holiday sets, too. Beautiful coloring on that Santa. We got to see the baby elephant when she was first unveiled to the public last month. She is adorable!! Did you get to see the baby giraffe and tigers? The little giraffe is also very, very cute.

I love your style. I am trying to make a banner like you have and it is a project. I guess thats why we do what we do so that people who don't can purchase them. Can you email me I have some questions. handforth@cox.net

I want to try a timeless template but even the simplest instructions aren't clear to me. Do you print the template on the DP and then cut out or do you trace it and cut out or what? Thanks CWeber2002@aol.com
