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.





WOW!  You are not going to believe all the gorgeous sets and dies Verve is releasing this week to celebrate 4 Years!   I am so thrilled to have a chance to be a part of some of the week long spotlights of the new sets and dies!  

Today, I am using the You and I stamp set along with the Heart U die.  I turned my letter U upside down to make an N for the word IN to combine some of the fabulous word stamps to make  "So Much IN Love" sentiment.  I just love that you can play along with the dies and the word stamps and create so many fun sentiments.  I combined my new dies with Verve's Jotted Heart die and Charming Oval die as well.  Check out what the rest of the divas created!
