Verve Spotlight Hop Day 1 ~ Happy Phrases


It's time to shine our sneaky Verve spotlight on some brand new stamps! We're counting down to Verve's release party this Friday night, April 15, with FOUR days of Spotlight Hops! And since we love to share, there's a prize hidden on one of today's hop spots! Just leave a little shout-out in the comments as you hop about for a chance to win some new Verve of your very own! You can check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.



Julee has designed some swaheeeeeeeeet little phrases for every occasion. And they fit perfectly in the A Cut Above Charming Banner Set Die, which fits perfectly in the Charming Oval Set Die. I used a phrase from the new set called Happy Phrases.


I framed the sentiment with one of Spellbinders' new Fancy Tags 2 Dies, and tucked an Verve Jotted Heart behind it. Lastly, I added some PTI buttons, a Vintage Lace Flower by Maya Road, some Zva Creative Pearls, and some Wild Orchid Crafts Lace. I also added some Frost White (ColorBox) ink to the paper edges to soften them up a bit.

That's it for my peek today, here's a list of who's hopping and what you could win:


1. Andrea 8. Julee
2. Jackie 9. Tosh
3. Charmaine 10. Amber
4. Janelle 11. Amy
5. Teresa 12. Maureen
6. Laurie 13. Cresta

Gabriela said...

Pssst! Tosha! It's me - Gabriela. Can I just whisper a little secret? I'm in love. Yes, I'm head over heels in love. With whom, you ask? Well, it's not so much a whom as it is a what. Yes, that's right. I'm in love with your card. I adore the flower, that exquisite lace (looks French imported) and your Spellbinders topped with little pearls as if they were cherries on top of the perfect ice cream sundae. That aqua striped DP stole my heart too. Yes, that's it - let's blame the striped DP for making me stray and for stealing my heart.

Sandra said...
