Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops DAY 3!

Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  Hop along with the Divas all week long as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve on Friday night!  One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.




Welcome back to DAY 3 of the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hops! I am excited to show you what I have created today using the fabulous Words of Wisdom set and Graph Paper PJ!  I also used the Rounded Rectangle Die and created a fun little removal Words of Wisdom notebook for my card.   

I dug out some tools I have not used in quite awhile.  A 1/16" hole punch, hammer, spool of wire, and a mat.  I stamped the graph, die cut and punched holes.  I used cardstock for the cover and back panel of the notebook.  I used the back of some paper weight designer paper.  I stamped and die cut the graph, stamped many of the wonderful sentiments that come in this set, punched holes, and threaded the wire.   I used this darker metal for the notebook and kept  the loops bent a bit to give more of a aged vintage feel. I am showing you a few of the pages inside my notebook.  In all there are 10 little pages in this notebook.  Fun and fabulous and I highly recommend you making one! 


I am also using the little sprigs images from Sunny Days and the Leafy Sprigs dies from Monday's Spotlight Hop. I just love this set and dies, too!  I had to add a few touches to this card just to show you how all of the sets can work together.   I added some glitter to my sprigs for some extra sparkle!  I am also giving you alittle sneak at another die that will be spotlighted more on Friday.  I used it as a border on this card, though.  Hmm.....whatever could it be?  I am using the MOJO Monday sketch(MOJO203)  for my card!

Next on the hop is Maureen!
