Exciting News to Share PLUS a Fun Card Giveaway!! :)

Happy Wednesday & thanks for stopping by!! I have some fun & exciting news to share... Julee invited back as Verve's Guest Designer for November. She asked me if I would fill in for Amber while she is away! Amber we hope you are better soon and on your way to a speedy recovery!!

This sneak peek sample was done using the NEW Hello Pumpkin set. It's an adorable stamp set and I can't wait to show you some more fun samples using it!! For my sample, I first created a fun box & filled it with goodies. I used a pumpkin template and added it to the face of the box. The decorative paper is from Stampin' Up! called Sweet Always.

Here is sample #2 using the NEW Tall Oaks set. To give my design a vintage feel, I sponged on Chocolate Chip on all of the layers. This stamp set is a favorite of mine, I just LOVE the fun swirls and beautiful sentiments!! I can't wait to combine these sets with the Hello Pumpkin stamp set!!

The NEW release for Verve is Sunday, November 9th!! Julee is releasing 6 NEW holiday sets along with 3 Plain Janes Sunday, November 9th. You can join us on Sunday for the Release Party in the Verve Forum on SCS. Would you like to see some fun samples... Check out Verve Blog for daily sneak peeks. In celebration of the NEW release, Julee is also doing a fun sketch challenge for the next five day's called "Verve Holiday Release Sketch Blitz". PLUS Julee is offering some awesome prizes for two lucky winners, they will receive ALL 6 NEW releases PLUS the Plain Janes for FREE!!
Want some more fun news... For those that don't know, Julee has generously posted a pdf file with all 5 sketches in the Verve Group over on at Paper Craft Planet - It's a fun NEW place to play!!
