Verve Inspirations Hop - Fun in the Sun


Each month, Verve has an Inspirations Hop and the Divas get to show some new love to some of the older Verve sets and dies. Today's hop is all that and a little more! In addition to looking back at past Verve favorites, many of the Divas are also featuring two brand-new Plain Janes, One Day and Grace. My crafty muse took me in a different direction, but I know lots of the Divas have some beautiful things to share with the new PJs. You're sure to love them!

I can't stop admiring the new Summer Fresh collection by Simple Stories. As I was combining all the bright, fun colors, I thought they'd go perfectly with Relax The timing is perfect, too, as my kids are finishing school this week and then .... SUMMER BREAK and some good, ol' fun in the sun!

I stamped the sentiment in red and yellow ink onto onto one of the pre-made elements in the Summer Fresh collection. Accents and embellishments include a scallop border, buttons, pearls, twine, a lace doily, distressing and a bit of hand-stitching.

Before I go, more Verve news ...


Coordinating stamp sets are on sale, too. VERY nice!! For a complete list, visit the SALE page on the Verve site.

One more thing, as always, be sure to leave comments along the hop for your chance to win a $30 Verve gift certificate. Enjoy!
