The Verve Sneak Peeks Have Begun!

Well, now that the holidays are behind us and the New Year has started, are ya'll ready for some new Verve-aliciousness!?! This month Verve is releasing 6 new sets, and each one is better than the next!!! Ya'll are going to absolutely swoon over them!! So today I get to kick off the week of Sneak Peeks with the new set called Meditations. Not only does it include one of my favorite verses, but it also has some fabulous flower images that are so fun to emboss, cut out and layer, or just stamp as the main focal image. It also reminds me of a dear friend of mine who taught me this verse and its meaning several years ago...what wonderful words to live by! My flowers here are cut out and layered onto a scallop circle that I stamped the verse onto and then dampened with water to smoosh and create the bottom flower layer. (Wet it on the back, so the ink won't smear.) Once they dry, they pretty much stay in that shape--try it! I also followed the first Viva la Verve sketch challenge (VLVJan01) over on the SCS forum (I came up with the name--don't you just LOVE it!?)! You don't want to miss playing with us!! On Friday of each week, Amber will come up with a new sketch challenge, but with a "twist" and at the end of the month, there will be a drawing for the following month's Verve release for free! Hello!! So fun and easy!

Now head over to the Verve Blog to see what Amber and one of our newest Verve Divas, Jen Tapler (Welcome to both her AND Jackie Pedro!--hi girls!) came up with for this set AND find out how you can WIN it for yourself!!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Have you heard of Project 365? It's a cool and VERY simple scrapbooking idea from Becky Higgins (there's LOTS of info on her blog, especially from December '08). I haven't gotten to order my kit yet, as they are out right now (but working on getting more), but my pictures so far are sure interesting! Take a look and let me know if you plan to join me, and I'll make a new blog listing on my sidebar! It's not too late!
