Words of Wisdom...


If I had to pick a favourite set for this Verve release I'd um and ah a lot...but this Words of Wisdom set just might be my favourite. As soon as I saw the uplifting sentiments I fell in love...and wanted to make an ATC with this quote right away....


This sentiment really spoke to me - and being something I always need to remember, I created an ATC to keep on my desk and remind me every day. The papers for this are the Portrait Collection by Crate Paper. The seam binding was dyed with Tangerine Tango reinker and pearl glimmermist.


This is such a huge set, I just had to make another project!


This card uses papers from the My Mind's Eye Union Square pack. If you look closely you'll see the die being teased today, the Rounded Rectangle Die and a co-ordinating Plain Jane, Graph Paper - love these!


Another perfect sentiment adorns the inside of this card.


Hop along with the Divas all week long as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve on Friday night!  One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.

  13. Oh I need the same ATC on my desk! On my dash in the card, in my wallet, or better yet, on a headband with a little clip to attach it right in front of my eyes!! Great ATC, lovely, lovely cards!

  14. Oh, I love your cards! Your ATC is amazing!

  15. White, black and red is one of my all-time favourite colour combinations so I am in love with your cards! I really like your ATC too, I could never get all those patterns to co-ordinate, that's definitely a talent.

    I'm not surprised that you had a job choosing your sentiments, from all I've seen on this hop so far I love them all! A set I think is definitely NEEDED! (as much as anything other food, water and shelter is needed:)) The first sentiment you used really struck a chord and is something that we should all remember, scary as it may be sometimes :)

You are rockin' this release!
