Waltzingmouse Stamps Design Team Blog Waltz with PouchMart!


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 BagI 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!

These are so adorable Kelly! Look how you stamped on the bag...that turned out brilliantly. Amazing job today!

Love both of these, I'm a huge fan of burlap (did you see that my java joy goodies got me in the door at May Arts?) and isn't that second one fabulous... I'm sure you could use that for a gift for a birthday party or one of your own girls...

Julia Aston said...

Oh Kelly! I just LOVE both of your bags - the red/white/blue colors look lovely on both - That bleached white bag looks wonderful with the striped stampings and pretty row of hearts and the BIG white flower with the cool star button just pops it!

Your glittery hearted angel looks so sweet on the airy blue dotted bag - what wonderful inspiration!

Sherry Butcher said...

thanks for sharing you great bags with the wondeful stampings.

Fantastic, Kelly! I love the way you decorated your bleached bag with the stamping and trims. The big flower is beautiful. Your second bag is so gorgeous, too! I love the sparkly angel tag you added to your organza bag. Love, love, love it!

Terrific bags. Love the idea of using stamps and felt and tags to dress up seemingly plain bags to make them fab.
Thanks for sharing

White burlap? Does it get any better than that! I love the red white and blue theme. I want that heart border die! The sheer bags are adorable already, but the stamped and colored angel is perfect for the blue bag. These bags are the perfect size for a treat.
