Popping In To Say Hello - and a Competition!

No, it's not Claire, it's just me, Lisa the Mousekeeper! It's rather dull without Claire around, isn't it? But we know she's enjoying a much-needed vacation with her family. No doubt she will have lots of photos and stories to share when she gets back. I can't wait! I love her flair for stories and the pictures she shares of her native country. I guess it's the Irish in her! {ha ha}

Anyway, you know the old saying, "When the cat's away, the mice will play!" Well, I think we should do a bit of playing ourselves! So here's the thing. Raise your hand if you know that Claire offers lots of FREE templates for you to play with. Of course you know that! And you can find them all in the Waltzingmouse Stamps store!

So here's the deal... pick one of the free Waltzingmouse Stamps templates and use it to make a project of your very own (preferably with Waltzingmouse Stamps, but we won't hold you to that), and link it up below by 11:59 PM Eastern on Sunday, August 15th (that gives you five full days, including the weekend). One lucky participant will be randomly selected to win a free stamp set of choice!!! And, if you want to, you can wait and choose one of the NEW stamp sets debuting on September 1st!!!

Shhhh, though... don't tell Claire. hee hee

Enjoy! With love from your little Mousekeeper, Lisa.


  1. How fun Lisa! there are several of the free templates that I've been wanting to try! This will inspire me to get going!

  2. Lisa, fab idea...playing and having fun while the main Mouse is away! Will have to pass though, my computer will not accept a pdf...need to look into this problem...that's for sure!!! Best wishes and Good Luck to everyone. I will come and look at the entries. So far the cupcake holder and watering can are really cute!

  3. Great idea, the templates are super!

  4. Oh fun, Lisa! I miss Claire, too, but lucky for us we have all of the DT Mice around to keep us company! Will have to try another template this week ( I so love that treat pouch, though!)

  5. Thanks so much for the freebies! I LOVE All of your products....

  6. Hi Lisa! I was so excited to play along - I love the lil' Tea Bag Baggie template - shared my sample here :)

  7. Great challenge and loads of fun to do. Thanks very much xXx

  8. Hi Lisa

    Thanks for this great idea to make a "template-challenge" while Claire is on her vacation.
    I have some of the Waltzingmouse stamps, but I have never before participated in a challenge. But this time I did and I made a "Stocking Card Gift Holder" which you can see on my blog:

    I know that it is very similar to that of Claire, but I think the stamps used just fit very well for this stocking. Unfortunately - as usual - I did not have the right and matching ribbon, so the stocking turned not completely out as desired.

    I like all the templates very much and will certainly try the others, too.

    Kind regards

  9. Ohmygosh, I adore the templates! I actually really adore all the Waltzingmouse Stamps, but haven't ahd the chance to purchase them yet. I hope to buy many :) in the future. They are so gorgeous.
    It was a lot of fun playing with the tea bag baggie template. Thank you for the chance and have a wonderful weekend!
    Steph :)
