Welcome to Day Two of our February 2013 Spotlight Hops! Today we're taking some sneak peeks at So Fluttery, Shining Star and the Plain Jane Beautiful. In addition, I'm sure a few of the coordinating dies are also going to be making an appearance. Best part is, everything you see previewed along today's hop will be available in Verve's online store on Friday, February 22.
In honor of Jen Shults becoming a part of the Verve Release Team, I thought I would use her fabulous round card sketch to showcase the Beautiful Plain Jane. I just love this sentiment! It's just perfect for sending to a friend to encourage them or to remind them to quit comparing themselves to others and to believe in themselves -- a message we all need to hear now an then :)
My second card showcases So Fluttery. I was so happy to see another butterfly set by Julee - you know me and butterflies! Even better, the Flutterby Die (one of my all time favorite Verve dies) can be used for the butterflies!
The sentiments and font in this set just makes me happy! I decided to use a list of them on a banner showcasing how I feel about my daughter (this card will be for her). She's going through a bit of a rough spell, so I wanted to encourage her. I topped the banner from the Banner Bundle Set with one of the dies from the new Flag It die set which has all kinds of fun toppers and banner shapes which you can mix and match. The olive seam binding is one of the colours in the new Spring Fling seam binding collection. Needless to say, this card was a lot of fun to make :)
