I was an avid scrapbooker many years ago. I enjoyed creating scrapbook layouts and albums for my kids and would scrap well into the night. Then life got in the way of my hobby and my interest waned, so I stopped scrapbooking altogether. While I can’t believe it was that long, I hadn’t scrapping for close to nine years. This means that not only were my daughter’s albums way behind, but I had not even started an album for my son who is my youngest.

Then something wonderful happened. I become friendly with two women who also liked scrapbooking. We set up a day once a week where we would scrap and chat for a few hours. I started purchasing fun supplies and my interest came back full force.

My friends and I took turns hosting the scrap day in our homes. The days when I scrapped outside the home were difficult because it was hard to know which items I needed for the layout I was creating that day. I packed a small bag the best I could, but almost always ended up leaving something I needed at home.

Then one Christmas my husband surprised me with the Crop in Style Navigator Rolling Tote featured on this page. It solved all of my problems. I now had an amazing bag for all of my supplies which I could take on the go.

I love this tote! It has so many cool pockets and compartments for my scissors, markers, punches, paper, cutter and other supplies. I especially love the areas for the markers and scissors.

I have had my tote for two years now and I take it with me each time I scrapbook with my friends. I am still behind with my kid’s albums, but I am having so much fun catching up!

    I love this scrapbook tote and if I did crafting outside of the home I'd have to get one.

    I had the XXL one and Loved IT! When I moved on to digital scrapbooking I used it for my beading and altered art supplies.

    I could see where this could be used as a book bag for the artist college student in the house. That would be our daughter.

    OOoooohhhhh! I would love one of these but I can't justify it at the minute, my studies have to come first but once those are finished, I will enjoy going back to scrapbooking!

    How cool that there is a tote for all your supplies! It looks very fun, and much more so to do together. Thanks for an interesting lens.

    Storage is definitely a vital component of scrapbooking and other paper arts. Totes like these make life easier.

    It's remarkable how the right storage tote can make it so much easier to do our hobbies - more fun, more convenience and mobility, and a whole lot less frustration!

    Great review! I used to scrap all the time, but my life has gotten in the way too. Time to get out the patterned paper and photos :)
