A Tisket, a Tasket.....and more fun things!!

Lots of fun things happening at Waltzingmouse Stamps!!

First off, we are having a customer blog hop scheduled for Monday February 22nd!!  Yes, you are invited to join us and to use your Waltzingmouse Stamps!! Upload to Mr. Linky on the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog so we all can all hop around to see each others wonderful creations!!

Check out this link to find out more information and to sign up for the hop!

Also, Claire is now offering templates! Oh yes bay-bee!!!Those beautiful baskets that you have seen Claire make on her blog will be available for you to purchase! A new template has already been added to the store, so make sure you check it out!

Right now they are available in two versions; a .pdf file that can be printed and cut out by hand and a .svg file that is compatible with some digital cutters. You can read more here.

I have made an attempt at one of the baskets available - my first one so no laughing!


I printed the template onto Ocean Tides cardstock and cut it out with my scissors.  I do have a Cricut and Socal, so I hope to have it figured out before my 85th birthday!! (really that is only 35 years away, if you were thinking of waiting... LOL!!)

Before assembling the Spring Basket, I stamped the underside  with Vintage Circles -small in Scarlet Jewel ink.

I printed the liner onto K & Company designer paper. I chose not to leave a decorative edge this time, but I think I would from now on - it just lends itself to a prettier basket!

The tag was also stamped with Vintage Circle-small frame and then I punched out another circle and stamped the sentiment from Very Vintage Christmas in Scarlet Jewel and popped it up onto the tag!

The handle edges were punched with my deep Floral punch by Martha Stewart.

Now my computer has been giving me fits the last few days, and the internet server people say it is my computer and my computer fixer-upper people say it is my internet server - so who knows It is so hard to find help these days! UGH!!


  1. Bonnie, you are a honey!! that wee basket is adorable!! Thank you!!!

  2. Wonderful basket - It looks like it has an unusual shape to the basket part - I like that!!! (Rather than square or round) Have a great day.

  3. The basket looks great Bonnie! Fantastic job - love the colors!

  4. Your basket is fantastic Bonnie! I want to see if I can get my Cricut to cut it out, but haven't had time yet this week.

    Sounds like you have the Keystone Cops working on your computer problems. Hope they can sort it out soon. Having a working computer is more important than food! Well, almost!


  5. What a pretty wee basket Bonnie! and love the big tag on it! great colors!
