Verve New Release Spotlight: Small Phrases and new PJs


It's Verve's last day of New Release Spotlights leading up to tonight's big release party and release (9-11 pm, here in the Verve Forum). We're taking a look today at a set called Small Phrases, as well as three new Plain Jane stamps (Plain Janes is a line of value-priced stamp singletons).

TODAY'S Featured Set:

plus the Philippians 1:6, Light Tomorrow and Life is Good PJ's


New Verve is something to celebrate, so we've hidden a big PRIZE 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 the entire July release! You can check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines. 



Don't be fooled ... Small Phrases is anything but small! The sentiments themselves may be small in size, but the complete set is huge and overflowing with sentiments for all occasions that can easily be tucked into any design - cards, tags, gift packaging, altered items. My idea list for these sentiments is a mile long! I picked out the sentiment "you rock my world" to show first. The layering is done with both Verve A Cut Above dies and Spellbinders dies ... first are the Verve Charming Ovals, next is the largest of the Floral Circles (the gray/white polka dot patern), behind that is a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three piece, and last is a gray Labels Fourteen decorative square.

Thanks for stopping by!
