TODAY'S Featured Set:

plus the Philippians 1:6, Light Tomorrow and Life is Good PJ's

Today, we're featuring one new stamp set, and three new Plain Janes! I haven't got anything made with the PJ's yet, but those are coming! I do have a couple using the new sentiment set, Small Phrases...


The "Small Phrases" set is made up of a bunch of small sentiments and alot of them will coordinate with alot of other Verve stamps! The "with all my heart" stamp is the one included in the new set, and the "I love You" is from Hearts on Fire. It was fun looking through all my sets and finding sentiments that would coordinate and be able to be used together! Small Phrases is a stand-alone set, I just thought it would be fun to pair it with other stamp sets. I actually sent this one to my husband in a care package yesterday! It was really quick and easy, just punched a bunch of hearts out and then cut the green cardstock and stamped my sentiment!

Here's another one using the "Welcome Baby" sentiment...


I also used the sun and clouds from "New Mercies" and the giraffe from "To the Moon". 

Now hop on over to Amy's blog! Her cards always blow me away, so I'm on my way there too;)
