Anni-Verve-sary Spotlight ~ Day 5

tagtimeday5A

Welcome to Day 5 of the 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 (eek! Tomorrow!)!  Today’s set is Tag Time!! Wowza!! Who doesn’t love a sweet little tag?  PLUS 3 dies to go with the set, two of which I’m sharing with you today :)

My tag and gift bag were inspired by the sweet little mini card set I teased you with on Tuesday.  If I WERE going to give (because I might keep them myself to give to coworkers or my dh) this set to someone, I would package them up in this mini kraft bag that’s been spruced up a bit :)  I took my colour scheme from the papers used on the card, layered some of the new tags…including the Mini Me version of the Sweet Scallop Die (suh-WEET!) to create the perfect little gift ensemble :)  Here’s a close up…as you can see, I’m starting to mix and match the stamp sets…oh, yeah! Love to do that!

Up next is the card I made for this month’s Get Your Diva On challenge, which is ON right now!?  Have you entered yet for the chance to be an upcoming Verve Guest Diva?  Diva Jackie’s challenge this month is “Tag, You’re It!”  I’ve used the Tag Time graph paper tag stamp with the coordinating die and layered it onto a journal tag.  The leaves are from Sunny Day (Day 1 Spotlight) and the sentiment is from last month’s release…New Mercies

It's almost like 'Diva Jackie' knew what was to come with this tag release huh?! Maybe some inside information there!! :)

I really like the gift bag you've made for the note cards - I'm with you on that though, it's difficult to give something away when you're so pleased with it!! :)
