With All My Heart

This month's release from Verve Visual, I feel, is the best yet! January 10 is the release date of 5 new sets - there will be two heart and three star sets - I'm telling ya, they will knock your socks off. I've had a great time getting ready for some upcoming celebrations like Valentine's and February/March birthdays (seems like almost every Campbell and Holgate birthday is in one of these two months or September) and... I have a couple of friends with birthdays and a couple more who are getting ready to have babies. These sets are coming to the rescue!! As mentioned by other teammates they can also be used for wedding or anniversary celebrations, I'm thinking graduation and celebratory events. I used one of the other sentiments from the set (you can see the other in Bethany's post below). I used the same heart that Bethany used and then layered it with pop dots/dimensionals on the larger heart, which is more of a bold outline.

Here's my sample for the Sneak Peek!!! I just love this Dutch Girl paper from Cosmo Cricket - ya, I know it's been around for awhile but still speaks to my heart (I've got a little Dutch in me) and I love, love, love the color combo!

  1. Speaking of knocking our socks off, your card does just that. Gorgeous!! :)

  2. I always think I'm through buying new stamps until you show me the newest Verve stamps. A definite "Must Have" for my stamp inventory. Same thing happened before Christmas with the new releases! Perhaps I should stop looking at your BLOG? Not likely! A beautiful card!

  3. Oh my goodness....Lila this is gorgeous!!! I love that paper you used, how you layered the hearts, that super cool felt like scrolly stuff, and those three heart brads!! Just beautiful!!

  4. Your card is gorgeous! But the, they always are!
