Verve Believe Blog Hop!

Good Morning Everyone and Welcome to the Believe Blog Hop by Verve Stamps!

If you’ve just happened across my blog, you’ll want to start back at the beginning over at Julee's Blog (http://poeticartistry.blogspot.com) and hop your way along.

Today we’re hopping for the Cure, sharing projects from a new set Verve just released called Believe. This set was designed in honor of breast cancer awareness and Verve is donating $10 from the sale of every Believe set to the Susan G Komen For the Cure foundation. We believe that we can make a difference. We believe that each day should be celebrated, each moment cherished and that every little thing we can do in the fight to find a cure matters.

Project Title: Believe Gift Set:
I made two projects today. One is a little notebook and notepaper holder. The Notepaper holder has the sentiment: "Believe in Miracles" and "Survivor" on the side and the Notebook has the sentiment: "Never Give Up" on the front.


Here is a closer look at the notebook. A little something for daily affirmations, etc.:


Project Details:

Paper: Digital: All are from the Sweet Shoppe Designs store and from the kit: This One's For the Girls by Heather Roseli, Krystal Hartley and Mandabean. Ink: Memento Lilac, Stamps: Believe by Verve, Accessories: Notepaper holder and Notebook, pen, ribbon from stash, Kaiser bling, dimnesionals, sticky tape.


Project Title: Only

I love each and every single sentiment in this set - It is seriously full of inspiration and beauty and hope. I made a card using one of my FAVE new sentiments: " Only as high as I reach can I grow, Only as far as I seek can I go, Only as deep as I look can I see, Only as much as I dream can I be." - (Karen Ravn) This is such an inspiring sentiment and I LOVE the swirls and this font! I created a mostly monochromatic card going pinkish red:

Here is a closer peek at the flower: I stamped the three flowers in this set, colored them with copics, glittered them with spica glitter and then adhered them with dimensionals, curling the petals in:

Project Details:

Paper: from stash. Ink: Memento Ladybug red and Lilac, Stamps: Believe by Verve, Accessories: liquid pearls, corner chomper, spellbinders, ribbon from stash, copics, glitter, dimensionals.


Thanks for hopping by! Next up on the hop is the fabulous Susan!!! Oh, and we’ve got a special gift hidden along our hop for one lucky commenter, so if you see something you really love, give a little shout out and you just might win a $30 gift certificate to Verve!
