WMSC #23

     It has been a long time since I participated in a Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge (WMSC). As I have said before, I love these challenges because I do not have to make a physical sketch of the sketch and I love that! The challenges are easy, peasy to remember! I just cannot do fussy layouts... Fussy stamping?
Well, that’s a whole different story !! Winking smileStamping can never (ok, almost never) be too fussy or intricate for me. I just love to see how stamps can work together to create an intricate pattern – although sometimes, I do go overboard. I just love how Claire’s stamps sets have so many bits and baubles that coordinate with each other.

Best Wishes

A Week of WMS Christmas–Day 6

     A repeat of the box I made yesterday. The stamped pattern is an amped-up version from Day 4’s post. These gift bags are a lot of fun to make. I just cut a 4 1/2” square, scored it1” in all the way around to make a box that it 1” high with a length & width of 2 1/2”. I stamped a 12x12” piece of paper (Colorbok), cut it in half (6x12”) and glued it around the outside of the box. I attached the grosgrain ribbon with double-stick tape.

A Week of WMS Christmas–Day 5

     And on with the countdown! Today is a gift bag that I have wanted to try ever since I found the tutorial by Diana Gibbs. Di’s blog is always a worth while read. I didn’t adhere to the instructions exactly, I changed the measurements. I am very happy with the results. Great for packaging home-made caramels or even a gift card.

May Peace be Yours

My wish for you today is to keep your mojo risin’, which made me remember that Mr. Mojo Risin’ is an anagram for Jim Morison’s alter ego.

For me, it’s the little tips and tricks that make all the difference. Thanks to all you bloggers who share these gems! A big thanks for the wonderful comments. I really, really appreciate them! They always brighten my day!

A Week of WMS Christmas–Day 1

     I have made enough projects, using sets primarily from October’s WMS release, that I can post  something new every day for a week, so I decided to have my own countdown of sorts.
