Verve 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop

We're celebrating 3 fabulous years of Verve with a special customer blog hop!

Who: All Verve fans
What: A parade of Verve creations from customers and Divas
When: Saturday, August 1, 2010
Where: The fun starts on Julee's blog at 8:00 AM (Mountain).

There is plenty of eye candy, an there will be plenty of prizes for commenters hidden along the way.

Make sure to leave a comment along the whole blog hop for a chance to win!

If you came from SONY'S blog, you are in the right place. If not, head back to Julee's blog and start at the beginning of the celebration! If you are lost, you can always go to the Master Link to find your way!

I only have one project to show off this year. I made a fun meander book. I am still addicted to these little books. They are so fun to make.

I started this one by stamping my 12x12" paper with an image from Let It Shine with versamark ink over and over and over again for a cute background:


I then put the little book together and made the cover with Basic Grey paper. I can't tell you the name of this series since I had won it from the Basic Grey challenge blog a while back. The stamped image is from Because of You. I so love this floral image. The sentiment is from the Wishing You set. Such great sentiments to use seperate or together!


I used a little image from Up Up & Away to stamp the tags.


I kept the pages really simple. Each page has a mat just big enough to put a 2.5x2.5" picture on. I alternated black and white for the mats. On the opposite of the picture mat, I put a Label 2 die cut that I stamped with the Vintage Label 2 stamp set from Waltzing Mouse.




I hope you like my little mini album. You can find it in my ArtFire Store.

Don't stop here, you are getting closer to the finish line!

Up next is TANIS.
