Bingo Bag Mania!

Approximately two months ago I did not even know that Bingo Bags existed..well I do now..

When I got asked from a local lady if I made bingo bags, my answer was "What the heck are Bingo Bags" I saw a photo of one and I thought geez..I can make these..well..good thing cause they are popular as heck! I have had order after order for these bags...I even had a call from a lady in North Carolina (at 10:20 pm) tee hee..she googled Handmade Bingo bags..and I was there..She said that I chose very pretty fabrics and she just loved them..who knew??

Well, I have been inspired...not only do I love patterned papers but I love fabrics just as much..I love to feel fabrics in a fabric store...matching and coordinating..ironing in interfacing etc.. Sewing together all the pieces to create something that is useful makes me happy..

I was in contact from a girl who teaches scrapbooking and wanted to purchase one of these totes to carry scrappy supplies...well I can do that I am a scrapper so I know how heavy albums can be..

Here is an example of my totes:

This tote fits 4 - 12" x 12" albums..I have lined the inside with a stronger fabric to make it extra strong. It also has a large front pocket! The colors shown here are pink and chocolate browns. Price for these totes are $25.00 cdn.

I also have created the smaller version of this tote which I use as my everyday handbag:

Cost for this handbag would be $20.00 cdn.

If you would like me to create a tote for you, please contact me at noelmika@nb.sympatico.ca I can create for you a scrap tote that all of your friends will love!

I will accept Cheques , money orders (cashable in Canada)

Or come check out my online store and pay via PayPal:

Well lots has been going on since I last blogged on my personal blog. Here is a rundown on what I have been up to:

As some of you may know I started a new blog showcasing my sketches called Creatively Yours - Sketches by Noella. This blog started June first and I can't believe the response and traffic I got..people contacting me and wanting to design for me! Crazy! So, I decided to place an ad at Iscrap in search of a design team and 52 applicants signed up...WOW!! How do I choose???? yikes..it was a hard decision but I managed to choose 12 people who are now my current Design Team! Check my awesome team out here.

I have also been contacted once again from the NBCC to teach starting September 18. Night classes in scrapbooking. I am very excited about this..yay! The lady I have been corresponding with is so organized!

Also, at Scrapbooker's Club House there is always some cool stuff going on such as Olympications, Celebrity Chat with Ali E! Yep...that Ali E.!!! September Guest Designer Contest as well as the regular SBCH Blog Sketch Contest!

On the home front, my baby boy (who is almost 7) lost his first tooth!! He was so excited!
