Waltzingmouse August Blog Waltz
Welcome to the Waltzingmouse August Blog Waltz! I am happy to be a part of the group again this month. Whew....I almost didn't make it! But I'm really happy to have got a project completed and posted.
If you haven't heard of Waltzingmouse Stamps be sure to visit Claire's Store and her blog. She4's got some great stamps and what I really like about them is that some of her stamps are nestie friendly! Since I'm a nestie's freak, that works great for me! Now onto my project.
I got this stamp set a few weeks ago, but hadn't inked it up yet, so this was the perfect opportunity. It's called Rescue Remedies and I just love the whole idea of it. We're off to visit my mother in law next week and I have plans on making her some cookies, so the gift bag will be for her.
I'm not sure where I got the gift bags from, but I had one left so I thought it would go really well with the Jillibean paper that caught my eye tonight. It's called Chopped Parsley--isn't that cute?! I used my nesties to cut out the tag, and stamped it with SU chocolate chip ink and then clear embossed it.
I topped the bag off with some ribbon. I used what I had in my stash, and layered the rick rack on top of the brown satin ribbon.
That's the project for this month. Have a great time on the waltz. I'm sure there are lots of beautiful creations to see. Don't forget that Claire also has hidden some icons throughout the waltz. You'll want to read about that, as their is a prize tied to it. Check out the rules here. You'll need to sign up for her forum, but it's easy.
