Hi Everyone,
This week is a fun one because its full of sneak peeks from Verve Stamps for its release this week, which is filled with the sweetest and perfect new Verve dies, so many beautiful Plain Janes and brand new stamp sets! Today we are kicking it off with the DT previewing 4 Plain Janes: 2 cross dies and 2 sentiment Plain Jane. For today's project, I used the Time to Bloom Plain Jane to create a quick little gftset of a card and notebook. I love this sentiment: "It's Time to Bloom" - it is such a good reminder that you are always unfolding your full potential. So on that note, I made a little card and gift pack combination  to inspire all the different resolutions for the new year! I altered a little notebook with some Sassafrass lass paper, thickers and this beautiful sentiment:


For the card, I used the Mojo Monday sketch #214 changlllenge and used vellum for the square area. I finished coloring the flower with my copics and then added some bling here and there:


Card Ingredients:
Paper: Sassafrass Lass and notebook 
Stamps: Time to Bloom PJ from Verve stamps
Inks: Ladybug Red and Tuxedo Black
Accessories: notebook, ribbon from Maya Roads, dimensionals, vellum, circle dies, and copics for the flower, bling from stash

I love the idea of making resolutions that are all about helping you become the best you can be and I feel like I need to be making one of these notebooks for myself :) I can't wait to see what everyone has creatied - please hop with me and check it out!
