Diva Inspirations Blog Hop--Just Because


Welcome to the June Diva Inspirations Blog Hop! Are you ready to start your day off with some eye candy? Our Diva Inspirations team and several special guests from the Release team are 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 the fabulous and photogenic Shannan'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.


Here's what I did--As ya'll can probably tell, I was in a "More is More" kind of mood, so I pulled out all the stops and used several different elements and two different Verve sets to create the "vee-yuh-shun" that I had in my head. Once again, I gravitated toward using an older set, Sweet Treats and combining it with a newer one, Bloom & Grow which also has the fun coordinating "A Cut Above" Dies, Floral Circles and Elegant Leaves. I LOVE VERVE that you are able to mix and match with just about any set!

Ok, I have to get moving now. I have a big day today. I'm taking my mom to a hand doctor to check on the progress of her broken finger, then coming home to work on a few projects including TCP and some end-of-the-year teacher gifts that I'm copying off of Jen (they won't be JUST LIKE hers, of course!). If she lets me, I'll post them soon. I hope ya'll enjoyed my "fully embellished" card today, Just Because!

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, June 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 June we're having double the fun and featuring two sets... the Father's Day set, Dad's Day and the patriotic set American Hero! Both sets have meaningful sentiments and would be a fabulous addition to your collection.

And at 40% off during the month of June, these two sets are a super big deal! Here's another big deal: A brand new month also brings along a new sale here at Verve! During the month of June, you'll find savings on stamps for all the men in your life. Find out which sets are on sale by visiting our Sale page HERE.

SUSIE Q-TIP: When I laid out the flowers just the right way I wanted them before gluing them down, I knew I'd never get them back right once I took them back off the black lacey circle because I do not have a photographic memory. However, my iPhone does. I took a quick picture and used it as my reference as to how to glue them down.

  16. WOWZA!! That is definitely some eye candy girl! I love it!! I could never pull that off, it would end up looking like a pile of dog crap, but somehow you managed to place each piece just perfectly and it looks AMAZING!! Seriously. How do you do that!? That many individual "things" on a card should not look that good. It's just not right.
