Verve Stamps Two-Year Anniversary Blog Hop! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Welcome to the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop. woooHOOO!!! Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! If you have not yet seen Julee's incredible stamps and artwork, check her out here!

If you're here for Close To My Heart's August Stamp of the Month blog, scroll down to the next post after you finish this one!

The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you started here, be sure to hop on over there to start from the beginning! And guess what! There’s a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky commenter on that blog (it could be you!) will win Verve’s entire August release! You can be sure I'll be commenting!!! But of course, it wouldn’t be a mystery if you knew which blog, would it? So if you’re feeling the love, give a little shout out to each of bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy!
Now, grab a Diet Dr. Pepper and some chocolate and settle in for the ride!

Here's a card I made with Verve's stamp set "Beautiful You". There are several lovely sentiments here that you can use either inside or on the outside of cards. They are also nice to use on scrapbook layouts! It also includes the flower that I 'colored' on my MojoMonday97 card.

RECIPE:

Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve)

Ink: Twilight (CTMH)

Paper: Emporium B&T, Cocoa Cardstock, Buttercup Cardstock (CTMH), K&Company

Other: Big Pinks Just Blooms, Sparkles, Organdy Ribbon (CTMH), Button (Foo la la)


Then, 'cause I just had to, I made an anniversary card for Verve! It's pretty dorky, relaly it is, but I had to lay it out so that I could include both the woodchuck (groundhog? cute little animal) and the birdie! This is a really cute DCWV paper pack. Of course, I cannot remember the name and I am at CTMH Leadership in Long Beach, so leave me a note if you want and I'll find it when I get home. I could call Alan and ask him, but a guy in a scrapbook room......ugh.
Well, thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Lisabee’s blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness!
Have a great day!
