Waltzingmouse July 2012 Blog Party

I can't believe it's the middle of July already. The summer is over half over...*sniff*



Well, being as it's the 17th, I'm joining in on Waltingmouse's Blog Party and am celebrating summer with the theme "The Great Outdoors".

Each summer we look forward to strawberry season, so I thought it would be fun to use the new Waltzingmouse set Jar Fillers ~ Jam Packed, combined with a previously released jar outline image from the set Candy Jar Christmas ~ Fillers. You can pre-order the jar by itself HERE.



Isn't this little jar the sweetest!! The outlines, lid, jar and label are all separate images, so the possibilities are limitless!! And the sentiments are just so fun and charming!!



Claire has also designed a sweet little Strawberry Template. I don't own a Cricut or Silhouette, etc., so I just used a PDF file, printed out the strawberry templates, cut them out, and stamped the Gingham & Co. images on the backside so you didn't see the lines. I then added a little button to the top with some twine.

Well, this is just a bit of what we like about summer. Be sure to stop by the Waltzingmouse Blog to see how other stampers interpret this summer theme.

Thanks for dropping by!!
Happy Stamping!!
