From the Heart

There's a fun after-party happening over on the Verve blog today. Check out some major eye candy, as each Diva has chosen a favorite project to feature!

And in case you missed the release party on Friday, all of the new stamps and dies we peeked last week are now available in the Verve store. Nine different set are available individually, or save 15% when you purchase the whole April collection. Don't forget the two new A Cut Above dies, Elegant Leaves and Floral Circles, which are sold separately from the bundle.

My card uses the new Happy Phrases set along with the Charming Oval dies. I started with a background panel of a pretty Prima Botanicals 6x6 pattern, then created a shabby grouping out of painted and distressed cardboard, a glittery chipboard heart, lace trim, a Prima flower and a sweet bird. I stamped the sentiment onto the smaller Charming Oval die, matted it with the larger Charming Oval die, and then accented with clear rhinestones. I'm a bit smitten with the whole shabby, romantic, collage look right now. Bear with me if it all begins to look the same!



My kids are out of school all week for Spring Break, so there might not be a lot of crafty time for me. I'll pop in when I can!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a great week!
