I was able to play along in this past week's Viva la Verve Sketch! This week's sketch is from Anya. This sketch was kinda different for me. I wasn't quite sure what to do with the twine pieces behind the circle. :)
I used the retiring Thoughtful Florals set from Verve. This was one of my very first Verve sets and now it's on the retiring list! :( You can get it on sale right now! Once it sells out, it's gone for good. I used papers from the Family Ties Collection from Pebbles. I added sequins from the Signature Sequin Mix for some sparkle.
Come play along with this week's Viva la Verve! Thanks for stopping by!

It's been far too long since I've been able to participate in a Mojo Monday Challenge! I always enjoy them! I'm sure you will too, so play along with us! For my card I used the Chocolate stamp set from Verve. The papers are from the Love Story Collection from Echo Park.
I stamped and colored the hot chocolate image with Copic markers. I die cut the word "chocolate" using the Chocolate Word Die, which I LOVE. So, head on over to the Mojo Monday Blog and play along with the sketch!
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hi there! I hope you've enjoyed everything we've been sharing with you this week! Everything you've seen is NOW AVAILABLE in the TE Store! I have one more project to share with you today. It uses the NEW Baby Treat Toppers.
Baby Treat Toppers is the newest in the Treat Topper line of dies. I paired the Baby Treat Toppers up with the Bottled Up Die and the NEW Little Bits of Baby set.
I used paper from the Double the Joy 6x6 Paper Pack as well as Potato Chip, Granny Smith, Sprinkles and Salt Water Taffy cardstock. To coordinate with the stitching on the Baby Treat Topper die, I used one of the dies from the NEW P&P Stitched Essentials set as well.
Thank you for stopping by all week! I hope you've been inspired to create! Have a wonderful day and HAPPY SHOPPING!

Hi there! Welcome back for Day 3 of sneak peeks! I hope you've been enjoying all of the peeks so far! I have two projects to share with you today! The first uses the NEW Bloomin' Boots set and Bloomin' Boots Die set. I love the adorable patterned clouds and boots in this set, not to mention the sentiments! :) I started this card by embossing one of the rectangles from the NEW P&P Stitched Essentials Die set onto the card. Then I stamped my scene inside that rectangle.
Once I stamped and die cut the clouds, I used a marker to color the outside of the box. Even though this card may look layered, it's just a plain white card base that is colored! I die cut the boot and adhered it with foam tape over the flowers and added a little sequin from the Double the Joy Sequins to one of the flowers.
My second project today uses the NEW Lovely Landscape set. Lovely Landscape is meant to pair with the Garden Arbor die series to create landscapes in the garden! You can see the flowers behind the gate, as well as the bird sitting on the gate. I also used the NEW Fancy Banner 2 Petite Stamp & Die Combo for the sentiment.
There is also some grass I added using the Wispy Grass Border. I finished the card off by adding some twine.

Welcome back for Day 2 of sneak peeks! Today I have two more projects to share with you! The first uses the NEW The World Is Waiting set. This is a great set with great sentiments and a globe image. I used just a sentiment in this card along with TE dies.
I used the Build a Scene: Rolling Hills, Build a Scene: Rolling Clouds and Build a Scene: Sunshine to create this card. All of the sentiments in the set are uplifting and perfect those "just because" cards. :)
The second card I have uses the NEW Shining Star Cutting Plate. The Shining Star Cutting Plate works with the Ray of Sunshine Cutting Plate, which I used on this card as well. The stars show in between the "rays". There is also an extra little die that comes with this that just cuts out stars of different sizes. I added random stars using that die.
The center is stamped using the NEW Shining Star Sentiments set. All of the sentiments are sized to fit perfectly in the center of the Shining Star Cutting Plate. I added some extra sparkle with the Wedding Sequin Mix.
