Verve's February Spotlight Hop is ON!


Verve's February Spotlight's have officially started and it's going to be awesome!!!!!!

Today we're shining our Verve spotlights on the new stamps Remember ThisCalendar Countdown and Smile Plain Jane. Each of the release team Divas below (including 4 brand new talented designers) has posted her first look at these new stamps today. As you hop through the list below, you just might see some super sneaky peeks of new coordinating dies, so keep your eyes peeled! Everything you see previewed along today's hop will be available in Verve's online store on Friday, February 22.

Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win today's featured products! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines. Woohoo! Let's get started...



I'm scared to death of scrapbooking! There I said it, maybe for the second time on my blog, but I think I might just like this revived way of doing it. I used Remember This and Calendar Countdown to create a layout with Doodlebug's Storybook Album and the photo/recipe protector sheet. I've left it blank so that I don't mess up the pretty clean lines of the stamped and coordinating dies (squeal!), but it will soon be written on to tell my first child how she came to my life, "one fine day" and changed who I am forever!
Sentiment from Remember This and new banner die with an old favorite Rounded Scallop Frame Die.

 Sentiment and banner stamp (completely love this one and you'll see me use it again in the week) from Remember This. Numbers are from Calendar Countdown and that slash is just an inked portion of the Scroll Plain Jane.
