Diva Inspirations Blog Hop--Peep Show
Well, welcome to the May Diva Inspirations Blog Hop! Our Diva Inspirations team is here to start your month off right with a little Verve inspiration! Take a little peek at each of the fabulous blogs below for some Verve-alicious eye candy and you just might win some Vervey goodness of your very own!
I hope you got here from Sony's Blog, but if you've missed the entire hop, you'll want to start at the beginning over on Julee's Blog so all that inspiration isn't wasted.
So as ya'll will read on, Julee suggested using the Stamp set of the Month, Dare to Be along with several other sets, Chicks Rule, Lucky Ducky and To the Moon to make some little lunch notes for your kiddos. SO I kind of went with that gentle nudge of inspiration (especially since I had NO idea what I was going to make for the hop when I sat down to get started), used ALL of those sets and decided to make a little something to give my mom some encouragement during her recovery for Mother's Day. It's one of the cutest things I've made in a while if you ask me!
All the little animals are "peeping" out of the fun library card envelope I picked up about a year ago at our local teacher store. (They were 10 cents each, how could I pass those up?) They are stamped, colored, cut out and sandwiched in between the hand-cut little framey things (frame stamp included in the To the Moon set) and the scalloped squares.
Ok, that's about all I have. It was a long day yesterday, as we were busy at the Scrapper's Boutique. Just FYI, too....we are gearing up for National Scrapbook Day next weekend! More on that to come in the next few days...
A few words from Julee:
We've hidden a little mystery prize on one of today's hop spots, so be sure to leave a little comment love as you hop around for a chance to win!
Comment Deadline: 11:59pm Mountain, May 5
Prize: $30 gift certificate to Verve
And since it's a new month, that means we've got a new Stamp of the Month to reveal:
In May we're featuring the sentiment set, Dare to Be. With 5 uplifting and encouraging sentiments, this set is perfect for graduation, congratulations or just a little pick me up. Or pair it with the To the Moon, Chicks Rule or Lucky Ducky sets for perfect little love notes to tuck into a lunchbox (hehe, thanks for the inspiration, Julee!).
And at 40% off during the month of May, Dare to Be is a pretty big deal!
Ok, lots of info, I know, but now it's time to get going onto the next Diva's Blog:
Teresa! I'm sure she has something sunny to share!

SUSIE Q-TIP: If you want to duplicate this project (and feel free to!--and let me know so I can be sure and check it out), be sure and color the little animals just a bit further down than the stamp goes (they stop midway down their tummies). That way, the part that gets tucked in between the sentiment panel and the scalloped square will be all the way colored just in case some needs to stick out a bit.
