Waltzingmouse June Release Day 1...You're A Doll and Additions

Hello, Hello!
And are you ready for the first day of Waltzingmouse June Release previews?
Claire is releasing a total of 9 10 gorgeous sets this month and they'll all be available in the store this Sunday, June 30th.
You can get all the details on Claire's blog HERE!
Since I have a lot to show you I'm going to dive right in and get started.
But first I will apologize for such a pic heavy post...
hopefully you'll forgive me when you get to the end.

When I first saw the peeks of You're A Doll and Additions...
I went looking for some inspiration at my one-stop-inspiration-shop...
And while they are sometimes called Babushka's and/or Matryoshka dolls...
I'm going to use the highly technical term for these creatively gorgeous sets...
Russian Nesting Dolls.
And I did not realize how popular they are until I went looking for a little inspiration...
and then my baby child walked in on me while I was working and asks "Russian Nesting Dolls?"!
To which I then looked at him and asked "HOW do YOU know that?"
"Jessie" he simply said...before he ran back out of the room.
I knew that kid spent way too much time watching Disney!
But my inspiration for all of today's projects started with this invitation I found on Pinterest...

and it grew from there...

A Russian Nesting Doll themed baby shower!
And since you can't have a party without an invitation...

I used Waltzingmouse Join Us and the label from Victorian Frippery (with a little selective inking) to create the information part of the invite...

I then did a little masking to stamp a larger and slightly smaller doll together...
and then fussy cut and adhered them to the front of the invite.
All my color choices came from the patterned paper you see in the background...
Carte Bella's Alphabet Junction.

And since it's no party without cake...
I created cupcake toppers out of the various stamp patterns included in this set in various colors...

And you have to have drinks, right?
Again I stamped the various patterns included in various colors onto labels that I then applied to some Frappe' bottles that I keep on hand.
Did you notice the straws decorated with that adorable small doll image?

Mints? Nuts? 
I used the cut files that Claire has designed to coordinate with this set to create little "goody" holders.
Super simple and easy to do...
but since there's no one expecting a baby child around here or even a birthday to celebrate...
I kept these small just to demonstrate.
They could easily be adapted to a larger goody package for guests to take when leaving as a small token of Thanks.

A couple of shots of the banner I made also using Waltzingmouse Victorian Alphabet to spell out the word "BABY"...but could be customized to any sentiment...
Happy Birthday...
maybe even a name?

Whew! Are you still here?  I'm all done now...
and if you are still here thank you for sticking it out!
I have LOTS more to show with these adorable, creative sets...
but promise I'll wait for another day!
Right now you're gonna want to head over to see some other gorgeous examples using these sets...

I'll be back tomorrow with more goodness...
till then!
