My Other Creations: Travel Art Kit

This week's theme over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog is "To the Moon..."  I figured that if I was going to the moon, I'd definitely want to have my art supplies with me.  And so I created this travel kit that will work (gravity permitting) to the moon and back:

I used one of Tim Holtz's configurations boxes to house my kit.  When you flip the cover open, here's a glimpse of the inside:

I was amazed at just how much crafty goodness I was able to fit inside my kit!  Here's everything all spread out:

I've included some of my very favorite go-to items in this kit.  Have you seen these adorable mini Distress Inks?  They are amazing space-savers!  Ditto with the mini blending tool.  I also included some cling stamps, stencils, Washi tape, adhesive, blank tags, fabric scraps, and of course, alphabet stamps and letters!

It gives me comfort to know that I can keep on crafting even if I leave the Earth's atmosphere.  Here's the whole list of supplies (available from Simon Says Stamp) that I used to make my kit and fill it:

I am so excited to see how the rest of you interpret this week's theme.  Be sure to upload your planetary masterpiece to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog for your chance to win a $50 voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store!

  9. Andrea, I'm about to go on a trip (not to the moon...) and I was looking up ideas on how I want to pack some supplies... thought this was great, and it's YOU! LOL. I'll let you know what I end up with. Was kind of thinking of using a lunch bag...
