Valentine, Sweet Valentine



As promised, more Verve projects. This first was created with Sweet Valentine. I love this red, brown, green color combo - great for a guy card, even with the big ol' ribbon.

Next is a four-pack of little 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" love notes, created with Hearts On Fire:



And a tote to hold them:



My favorite set of the new release is Hundred Hearts. The sentiments are phenomenal! I chose to pair one of them with a photo of me with my youngest when he was only a couple months old. I'll either slip this into a scrapbook or put it in an 8x8 frame I picked up recently. I have to tell you, it feels strange putting my big ol' mug on here like this, but here goes anyway:




And a close-up of the ribbon/tag/sentiment combo:

  33. Amy, as I go through your blog, I sit here in quiet reverent awe of your talent. I don't know where to begin. The scrapbook page you did you of your son is so incredibly beautiful. I've only recently discovered the Verve stamps and I can tell you I'm smitten! I've made one order and am getting ready to make another. I used one of their scripture verses for an ensemble I did for CHA. I plan on using them in the calendar I design this year as well. They are lucky to have your talent on their team.
