Verve June Spotlight Hop ~ Day 5 (Release Day!)


It's release day at Verve and we're celebrating with Day 5 of our June 2015 Spotlight Hops!  Have you enjoyed the spotlights we've been sharing this week? Well, the wait is over and everything previewed this week is available in the Verve online store now!

Today's spotlight is shining on The Sparkly Dreams set illustrated by Julee Tilman, as well as the Butterfly Dreams Die Set and the Flourished Tag Die Set.

This set has a very special place in my heart.  It all began 2 years ago at my son's university grad.  Seeing him cross the stage and then seeing the graduate students cross the stage gave me the last bit of nudging I needed to go back to school to get my Masters.  However, this time I would be OLD and working fulltime! LOL  Last year I was reflecting on my first year's journey and found some graduation quotes.  I sent the idea to Julee and voila, here are some of those quotes in this beautiful stamp set!  The great thing is, they are not just for graduation but for any occasion!  I'm also using the new Viva La Verve sketch by Charmaine...
 ...all this inspiration worked!  I graduated this May from Gonzaga University :)

Congratulations! Your card has lots of elements that are pleasing to my eyes.I particularly like the clear piece with turquoise chevron on it, that white die cut background with glitter paper behind, and that sentiment is wonderful. Kudos for being Julees inspiration. Thanks so much for sharing your great card.
