A little about today's featured products..

With all the clean & simple stamps included in this release, I thought it would be fun to have some new border stamps to coordinate with them.  In Borderline I included some of the trendiest patterns in the craft world today like chevron, ricrac, stitching and arrows.  There are also a few image borders for mix and match options with the new Doodled Occasions and Stronger Love sets.

To round out the set, I wanted an option for some smaller frames, so I created miniature versions of the Classy Label, Curvy Bookplate and Vintage Oval as well as nine all occasion sentiments to fit inside them.  And since labels are meant to be cut out, I created a die set to match each frame, so you can both cut out the stamped image, as well as layer a mat behind it!  I know the Mini Classy Label Die Set, Mini Bookplate Die Set and Mini Vintage Oval Die Set are going to be some of my most used dies.

Want to win some VERVE?

  1. FYI, the link to Susan's creation isnot working. I found her by going back to the day three links.


  3. My poor heart can't stand it! Not to mention my pocket book. Every day there are new "must-haves" going on to the list. Fantastic to see all those new mini versions of the dies. They will be great for layering.

  4. I LOVE these hops, they have been so inspirational! Thanks again!

  5. Oh Julee, what are you doing to us?! Can't you bring out some really rubbish stamps so that I don't HAVE to have them?! He he! :) This borderline set is my second favourite so far (after stronger love) and it's on the wish list!

    Roll on the last spotlight and the RELEASE!! Whoop whoop!

    Laters, ladies :)

  6. Wonderful projects today, one more day!!!

  7. I have really enjoyed these hops and have not missed a one. All the creatiions have been wonderful. Can't wait for tomorrow night. My wish list is growing by leaps & bounds. :)

  8. I played along!!! For the first time (it's all Maureen's fault, chuckle). Hopping... to do soon.
