We're celebrating 6 years of VERVE this month with a huge sale! Your favorites are bound to be marked down, since all stamps and dies are 10-50% off during the month of August! Now that's something to celebrate!
 
 
With the start of school next week (OMG....where has summer gone), I've pulled out some oldie but goodie pattern paper from my stash from MME.  I paired it with the Teachers Count stamp set/matching dies and the frame stamp from Tag Time.  Did a little sewing here which I love to do but I get lazy and don't want to drag the 'ole sewing machine out!
