Now That's A Diaper Bag!

Baby Shower favors and gift bags for prizes.

I'm working on ideas for baby shower favors and gift bags for prizes. This is my first tote from a pattern I got from the Split Coast Stampers Fan Club. Of course I'm a Fan Club Member.....aren't you? What!? You haven't joined yet? Well well gotta join if you want "Leigh's Totally Tote" pattern and lots more goodies too!

For more info on the fan club go to

Here's a couple pics to give a better visual of the size.

I stuck a mini lotion from Victoria's Secrets in the bag for another visual of the size.

The teddy bear was an afterthought and not sure yet if it will be stuck in there or not. The bottle isn't attached --- it pulls out of the pocket. I'm thinking the back of the bottle will be a good place to write a message? Both the bear and bottle are Sizzix Sizzlets dies. The pocket I made from a Tag Punch from Marvy Uchida - and I just folded over the top. Pink paper is from Making Memories & Cardstock from SU & Bazzill. Diaper Pin and baby tag stamps from StampinUP and stamped with SU Close to Cocoa Craft ink- then sprinkled with Heat & Stick power and embossed - then sprinkled with ultra fine white glitter and heat set. It's really hard to see the sparkles in pics...but they sparkle :) The stitching is done with SU Close to Cocoa Classic using a stitches stamp from CTMH. I used Chestnut Roan Colorbox Chalk ink around pretty much all the edges. I use Chestnut Roan for like everything! Making this tote was SO MUCH FUN!! These will have gifts in them for prizes at the baby shower.

THEN.....I had to make another little baby item. And of course the pattern is from SCS Fan Club - "MelMel's Baby Cradle"

These are made with the Canvas Background from StampinUP! stamped on white cardstock. I also used Chestnut Roan on the edges. One piece of the hood has a piece of white stamped with dots and punched out with a handpunch. That piece is actually a punched out scalloped oval cut in half from the Marvy Uchida hand punches.

The cradle actually rocks back and forth and the hood moves too! This is going to have candy put inside. I was going to wait till I could get a pic with the candy in them....but I couldn't wait that long to show off :) I'll post again showing pics from the shower.
