Seven members of the Waltzingmouse Stamps Design Team are sharing projects today using WMS images AND....lovely bags from
Pouch Mart is a wonderful webstore that sells bags in all different shapes, fabrics, colors, and sizes that are just perfect for gift-giving, weddings and showers, parties...the sky is the limit! They also have a blog featuring creative ways to use their products. They are generously offering a $25.00 Pouch Mart gift certificate to a randomly-selected commenter chosen from the DT members' blogs! Another lucky commenter will win a free Waltzingmouse Stamp set of choice! You have until 11:59 EST on Sunday, July 29th to leave comments.
The first bag that I get to feature is the Jute Bag. I chose the 3x5 size in the color "Bleached".
One look at these sweet little folksy bags and I was sunk! I can't seem to stop using red, white, and blue this July...and I thought this patriotic theme would be perfect since the Olympic Ceremonies start tonight! Maybe I should fill this with protein bars and send it to Michael Phelps :)!! Hey, this color scheme is perfect for our host country, toooo!
I used Off Beat Backgrounds to stamp a plaid stripe in blue. The little tag is made with images from Jar Fillers-Jam Packed. The felt hearts are cut with the Memory Box Heart Chain Border die and embellished with little kraft-colored pearls.
The felt flower is made with the Bloom Builders #1 die from Papertrey Ink. I also used a pinked edge circle from Memory Box and a star button from Basic Grey.
I also received the Polka Dot Organza Bag in the 4x6 size, in light blue with white dots.
This light shimmering bag made me think of sunny blue skies and puffy white clouds! How could I not use my most favorite stamp set Earth Angel with it?
I paper-pieced her dress with paper from Lily Bee Design's "Double Dutch" Collection. Wanted her wings to shimmer like the organza bag so added some Doodlebug glitter. She's perched on a die cut tag from Verve Stamps and some matching polka dots! The sentiment is also from the Earth Angel set, and the little felt heart is a leftover from project #1 :)!
Thanks so much to Pouch Mart for letting us sample their lovely products! I can't wait to go look in the store again! Also special thanks to Julia Aston for organizing this whole event! Off you go to see what these Waltzingmouse Design Team Members have created with their Pouch Mart bag choices.
Be sure to leave your comments to be eligible to win those 2 awesome prizes. Winners will be announced on Julia's blog on Monday July 30th. Happy waltzing!
