It's Not All Black and White

"Fairy Tales Do Come True...

...It could happen to you. If you're young at heart." I can't stop singing that old song ever since I started working with this new Verve Stamps set, Fairy Tales. And it really is totally charming. You'll be able to see the full set Tuesday night/Wednesday morning at midnight. In fact, Verve is hosting its very first release party in the new Verve forum on Splitcoast. I hope you can stop in to join us Tuesday night from ten to midnight ET.

I made this 2-5-7-10 box and decorated with some paper by My Mind's Eye and this LOVELY medallion and sentiment. The white stamp all over the box is also a doodad from Fairy Tales.

What's In It?
Stamps: Fairy Tales (Verve Stamps)
Paper: baroque burgundy, very vanilla (Stampin' Up!); Everyday "Cherished" (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: bravo burgundy, bashful blue (SU!); Cloud white (VersaMagic)
Accessories: ribbon (Michaels); tacky tape, scallop scissors (ProvoCraft); 1/8" circle punch (Fiskars)

There's so much going on right now at Verve with the one year anniversary, so here are a few reminders:

  • Sneak Peeks continue on the Verve blog Monday and Tuesday.
  • A Verse a day continues with the anni-Verve-sary set, Beautiful You, on the Verve Forum everyday through Tuesday. You can enter every day to win the set.
  • Anni-Verve-sary sketches continue on the forum, where you can win each day or the whole shebang.
  • Release party on the forum from 10 pm to midnight Tuesday, August 12th, with all sets and singles being released at midnight.

Whew, I think that covers it.
