Fanspiration Diva Dare - Day 2

Laurie here, and I'm popping in here to share how I answered this month's Diva Dare!   This month, we "dare" you to show us your new creations inspired by projects made by Verve fans!  You can pick any little Verve project to inspire you, as long as it is not by one of our design team members (or yourself!) {grin}. To get your wheels a turnin', the Divas will be posting their Fanspiration creations using our newly released products right here each weekday!


To say that I had a hard time choosing just one project to use as my inspiration was difficult is a huge understatement!  Wow!  You all are SO creative!!   I finally decided on Stephanie's  beautiful Miss You Like Crazy card!  I just adore the fun, bright colors...not to mention the fab layout (which happens to be a Mojo Monday sketch)!  :-)

Instead of a card, I turned my project into a little homemade notebook.  I have filled up my other notebook that I have been using for sketches and thought it was time to make another one.  I used the Brighter Days set (along with the cute little stitches form the Borderline set) combined with the following dies:  Pennant Trim, Curvy Bookplate, Scalloped Flowers, & Leafy Sprigs.  I chose the Good Things are Going to Happen sentiment...because honestly I thought it was perfect for a sketchbook!  LOL! 



Well, hopefully you've enjoyed this first day of our Fanspiration Diva Dare! Read on to see how you can win some shiny new Verve! There are two ways to win...
