Wow - we've finally arrived to the Waltzingmouse May Release Day! Today you will finally be able to purchase all of Claire's new releases - Tag Collection 1, Stitched Tags and Folding Tags! As well as the Simple Sprig Dies!
And to celebrate the release - the Design Team is having it's traditional Blog Hop using whatever they wish from the new release to give you one final inspiration before you trot off to the WMS shop to purchase what's inspired you most to be creative!
You should start the hop at Claire's WMS blog. If you arrived here from Lynn's Blog - then you are in the right place!Today I used a tag stamp from the Tag Collection set - this one has a lovely distressed edge on it and subtle swirls around the ENJOY sentiment. I decorated a small white with pink dots bag for this creation. Don't you just love the shadow font used on the for YOU sentiment in this set?!
I filled my bags with some fun flavor straws and tied the "Hope You Like It" sentiment from the set around them with brown and pink bakers twine to match the chocolate and strawberry flavors of the straws.
Have you seen these flavored straws? I found them by the milk at the supermarket. Apparently you just put the plastic straw in the milk and suck the milk up the straw and it flavors the milk as it passes by the flavor beads into your mouth!?
I gifted a couple of these packages to some kidlettes on Easter. No report back yet on how they tasted!
You can win a coupon with the money value of a large stamp set that you can use to purchase anything in the WMS shop - one lucky commenter will be chosen from all the comments left on the Design Team Blogs. You have until Monday, May 5th at midnight to leave comments. The winner will be announced on Claire's blog on Tuesday May 6th.
