Waltzingmouse Stamps - February Release Blog Hop!

Hello friends and welcome to release day!  If you are hopping from Jeanne's blog, you're in the right spot.  If not, head over to Claire's blog to get started!

I hope you've had fun during the previews the past few days - I sure have!  There were so many neat tips and tricks the DT used for their projects (who can forget the vellum or the yummy Sakura markers?!), I know I'll be incorporating some into my future projects!

For my project today, I made a gift bag for a new parent of a baby boy!  I took a white gift bag and gussied it up with some patterned paper and a little banner trimmed with some rhinestones.  I added some little wooden shapes and tied on a tag stamped with one of the fabulous sentiment from the set.

As a new mom myself, I know how valuable this little handmade gift card is…  :)
I took one of the coordinating papers from the collection and made a wee envelope using the new envelope die and added a card (cut from the gift card die) stamped with words that would be absolute heaven to my ears!  Are you listening, honey?!  :)  I think it would make an adorable gift for a new parent complete with something for baby inside of the bag.  Cute!

In all seriousness, I am getting a "mom's day out" on Sunday with my friend Jamie and we're going for brunch and pedis before the Oscars.  On such a glam day, we all deserve a little bit of pampering, right?

And, one last shot of the little…We had a photographer come to the house for a little shoot in December.  Be still my heart.
Here are the rest of the DT participating in today's hop!  Thanks so much for visiting today!
