Sweet on You Sneak Peek

Hi Everyone! Today is the first day of the sneak peeks of the new Verve release, which will be available Friday night after our Release Party. Be sure to hop on over to the Verve Blog to see what the Divas have worked up with two of the new sets, Sweet on You and World's Best. There's also a chance to win the two sets they're peeking today, so don't forget to check it out!

For my first projects with Sweet on You, I wanted to work with some treat bags to show how the set was designed to be used. I didn't have a lot of time, (it's crazy how busy it can get leading up to a release!) so these little treats were the perfect little project. I completed both projects in under 15 minutes! I've always loved giving little goodie bags to friends and family, so I designed this sentiment set to be used with some of the popular candies you can get at the store. Things like 100 Grand, Reese's Pieces, cinnamon bears, Red Hots, Skittles, M&M's, Starburst, etc. The first sentiment I used is my personal favorite, and says "I love you to pieces" - perfect for a little treat bag filled with Reese's Pieces!

The set includes a scalloped oval and a dotted oval that are designed to nest inside of each other, and several sentiments that will fit inside. Actually, most of the sentiments from this release will fit inside these ovals. I stamped the scalloped oval in Tangerine Tango on a Top note die scored in half, then stamped the dotted oval and the sentiment in Vintage Photo Ranger distress ink and punched out with the wide oval SU! punch before sponging the edges and popping up on top of the scalloped oval. A little poly twill ribbon and a small cello bag and I was finished.

For the second treat bag, I chose the "You color my world" sentiment. I can see so many different uses for this sentiment. I picked some colorful Cosmo Cricket DP and a Riding Hood Red mat for my Top Note. I decided to go with just the dotted oval for this one, and stamped my sentiment inking it with Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze. I finished with a little celery grosgrain and a bag full of skittles.

Okay, hope you liked my little peek. If you haven't already, be sure to check out the Verve Blog to see a few more projects with today's peeks.
