For those of you who were interested in this product, I thought I'd post an update for you. I ordered it from hsn and loved it until I actually filled it up and took it to a crop. It is front heavy and kept falling over on it's front and it drove me nuts so I ended up returning it. I did however end up ordering the shoulder bag separately because I LOVE that thing! It holds paper perfectly!

I love mine...I have the set. The shoulder bag holds tons. I haven't taken the rolling bag to a crop yet...so I don't know if I will experience the same as the OP. I just wanted a rolling tote smaller than my XXL for when I go to day crops or crops where I take the train to get there.

Kat, I bought this from HSN because of your post here. And, I have to say I love it. Yes, it will topple over when the front section is full. I try to keep something heavy in the back part to keep it from tipping over. I also crop out of this at home all the time.

So sorry you didn't like it. I can live with the tipping because of what it will hold, how easy it is to roll and that I have everything in those two bags. Of course that means I use kits all the time because there is no way all of my paper would fit.

I had a bag similar to this where it opened in the front and it tipped over all the time as well, I got frustrated and gave it away. That is why I'm not buying the rolling tote. I'd love the four wheels but was disappointed to see it open in the front. Next time they should consult real scrappers on the design

At least they don't smell bad any more. I remember reading a thread about that a while back. But toppling over is just poor design.

I have an inexpensive bag that did this. I cut a length of foam swim noodle the width of my bag. Then I cut out a little space for the feet of the bag. Finally, I hot-glued the foam to my bag so now the front is a little higher than the back. Worked great!

That is so sad.....I was hoping they would come out with this in Pink or Purple cause I really wanted ones


I love the smell of card stock in the morning.....


The Movie poster that is my avatar is very special cause my husband is in it and it won best film at the Canadian Film Festival in 2012. See it......It's super funny.
