Waltzingmouse September Release




Hello Waltzingmouse fans!!  The day has finally arrived!  You can now purchase all of the new September sets.  What a super fun release.  If you've arrived here from Teresa's blog, you are on the right track and at your last stop.  If not, head on over to Claire's for the list.

  I didn't have as many projects to share with you this month because I had my son visiting from out of state, and I was out of town for 3 days.  So I promise to share more with you in the coming weeks.  These sets deserve to be shown off as much as possible.  They're full of beautiful and fun images and fabulous sentiments.

Today I combined a new set with one of the newly released sets:  Opera Tags Christmas and Seasonal Remedies.  I thought it would be perfect to add the tag to a gift bag, so I made my Gift Bag Topper (Tutorial found HERE).  This bag is smaller:  3x5x8 1/2, so I adjusted the dimensions to fit it.    I added a tag, that I die cut using Waltzingmouse's Opera Tags die, and the Seasonal Remedies image to the front.  Pink and green aren't traditional Christmas colors, but I wanted to step out of the traditional box with this project.



eta:  There will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from comments left on each blog. You have until September 21 at 11:59 PM (GMT), 5:5 9AM Central (Sept. 22), 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave comments.  The winner will be posted on Claire’s blog on Monday, September 23rd.

That's it for today.  I'm the caboose on this hop, so if you started here, you'll want to start at Claire's blog for the complete list of hoppers.  The super talented Becca is starting us off this month.

I hope you've enjoyed the previews and have been inspired to purchase these beautiful and versatile sets.

Thanks for all your kind, encouraging words.  They truly are a blessing.
Happy Stamping my friends!!
