I take the CIS Jr. tote to crops at my LSS. I like to travel light so this is perfect for me. Looks can be deceiving because this bag holds a lot more than you'd think just by looking at it. I can pack several 12x12 page kits, tools, an idea book and embellishments without it becoming too heavy to carry. This tote isn't on wheels so if carrying a tote bag on your shoulder is a problem this isn't the bag for you. The quality is exceptional. There's several pockets on the front and sides and a large flat pocket on the back to hold a magazine or idea book. The adjustable strap is wide so it doesn't dig into your shoulder.
I have had my CIS jr for about 4 years now and it is still in just perfect reliable and new shape! Its very spacy for your pages, tons of pen and scissor storage and many different sized compartments for your smaller things. A real comfortable woven shoulder strap makes carrying heavy loads easy.
I sit mine right on top of my Navigator tote and with the velcro loop it has on the back, it secures right to it and works great together!
A very nice tote I recommend to everyone :)
Of all the brands of storage, or totes for scrapbooking, the Crop In Style brand is the best! I have several of this size, and keep things for 1 scrapbook that I'm working on in one of these cases. I have several scrapbooks in progress, one for each scrapbook. It's roomy, has lots of pockets, is the best quality, and I hope they don't quit making them! They're also perfect for taking rubber stamps and inks etc. if you're going to rubber stamp at a friends house.
This was my very first crop bag, and I absolutely loved it. It is comfortable to carry and doesn't take up a ton of space in your car or near the crop table. It has quite a few compartments and a nice, deep space for storing papers and tools. It is perfect for a beginner who doesn't have tons of supplies or for a seasoned scrapbooker who knows how to take "just what they need" to a crop. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend, or "neighbor!"
I bought this bag when I first started SBing. It seemed so huge at first and I loved all of the pockets and pen storage and loved that it had the big open space to store everything else. I quickly outgrew the bag and moved up to the XXL. I love how well the bags work together. This one has a velcro "loop" in back that fits right over the handle of the XXL. When I'm going to a shorter crop and can pack lighter, I can take this bag by itself and be fine.
