Welcome to our May 2014 Spotlight Hops!  We're so excited to share some new Verve with you!

Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 5/23.

Oh, new Verve!  How exciting!  Julee has designed some fresh and fun fonts and flowers to satisfy my addiction to both :)  I’m using a couple of the new Button Best sentiments to create a little chalkboard sign with the Occasion Frame die and matching On Occasion frame image.  I cut each of the Petal Points dies out and stamped the coordinating flowers out adding the cute little centers from the set.  I just punched them out with my circle punches…easy peasy!
