Viva La Verve



Today I'm sharing my take on the current Viva La Verve sketch. Each week, Verve Diva Amber Hight posts a new sketch in the Verve Forum, and each sketch has a "twist," which is an extra requirement or restriction. This week's twist is to use acetate on your card. I ran a small piece of acetate through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and layered it onto the vertical panels that has the ribbon on it.

Do you know that if you complete all four Viva La Verve sketches in any given month, you can enter the grand prize drawing, which is the next month's entire release? I can promise you February's grand prize drawing is one you won't want to miss! Why? Because Verve's biggest release EVER is coming on March 8, and all EIGHT new sets could be yours free if you win! If you haven't started on this month's sketches yet, or if this is the first you're hearing of them, no worries, there's still plenty of time. The deadline is not until midnight, CST, on February 27. You'll find all four Viva La Verve sketches in the "Contests & Challenges" section of the Verve Forum on SCS, and all the participation details are included in each week's sketch post. Hope you can play!

To make room for all the new sets that are coming, Verve is having a huge sale. Almost all of Verve's sets are discounted, but only through February 28 and only while supplies last. You'll find all the sale info and prices in the Verve store.

Also, save the date:
Verve's March Release Party
Sunday, March 8
8 pm EST
