Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop--Dream Big


Well, welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops! Hop along with the Divas all week long as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve on Friday night! One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.


First of all, HAPPY 4th ANNI-VERVE-SARY to Verve!

Today, we are spotlighting Tag Time, a fun little set that I can see plenty of uses for on cards, scrapbooks, art journals and even those up-and-coming "Smash Books" (have ya'll dabbled with those yet? I'm thinking about it). I've also used a couple of new dies from Verve as well--there's the Tagged Rectangle Die (that really is in the shape of a tag, I just covered up the top part with my "schtuff"). There's also a preview of the From the Heart Die Set, which will be available exclusively as a free gift with a $35 minimum order through August 31, while supplies last. {This promotion starts AFTER the sets go live on Friday night, August 12.}

For my card, I used the latest Viva la Verve sketch that Andrea came up with for last Friday. You can find the sketch and all the details on playing along with us in our SCS forum HERE. There will be a new one out tomorrow, and I'll have another Anni-VERVE-sary spotlight post right here! Next on the hop is Maureen, so head on over there and show her some l-o-v-e...

SUSIE Q-TIP: When making little stacked circle embellishments, don't put glue on all the layers at once and then try to put them together. They WILL slide around and get off-center. Don't ask me how I know this. I don't want to talk about it.
