Verve 2013 Spotlight Hop...Each Day

Welcome to our September 2013 Spotlight Hops!  We're so excited to share some new Verve with you! Each day this week, the Divas will be shining their Verve spotlights on a different set, so stay tuned for a week filled with inspiration! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 9/27. Today the team is peeking two new sets, Each Day and Psalm 94:18 Plain Jane. I decided to make something for each set:


I have to admit that Pinterest helped me out with a little inspiration for this one. I wrapped a length of burlap around the candle, then the floral trim and Verve's Polka Dot Basics collection ribbon. I purchased the charm from Michael's clearance bin, it had a generic photo in there so I stamped 'God is Able' from the Each Day set, sponged the edges and Modge Podge'd it to the charm. I then glued that to the ribbon.


And here's a card featuring the Psalm 94:18 Plain Jane:

I am always inspired by the Fall colors I see this time of year, so I pulled out some lovely papers from American crafts. I added a bit of Victorian lace trim, some blinged out Autumn leaves and a metal flower charm. Some of my favorite liquid pearl accents give it a finishing touch.
