Verve New Release Hop


Today's the day: all of the new Verve stamps and dies are now available in the Verve store.



The Divas are having a release hop to celebrate. Leave comments along the hop for your chance to win the entire release!


Today, I'm playing with a new set called Joyful Blooms. You may recognize the flowers -- they're smaller versions of the flowers in the popular Great Friend set. Rounding out the set are some wonderful, all-purpose sentiments. And although I didn't use them, there are matching dies -- three of them, for the three different sized flowers!

The layout comes from this week's Viva La Verve sketch challenge. Check out this beauty Janelle put together for us:


Sketch challenge details are posted in the Verve Forum on SCS.

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
