August Anni-Verve-sary Sneak Peek ~ Day 1

augreleaseday1B 

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! 

Okay, I warned you all this release was going to knock your socks (if not your lounge pants) off!!   First up today, is the gorgeous Sunny Days set with several beautiful blooms, leaves and sprig images.  I just love the look of white on white with burst of colour.  The sprigs come with their own dies in two different sizes, perfecting for layering :)  Though, the set itself comes with 6 sentiments, I chose to use the new Where Hope Blooms Plain Jane…are those swirls fabulous or what?!Here are the deets on what’s happening today and for the rest of the week…

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.   Thanks so much for visiting!!  Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Well your card is certainly blooming! I am a massive fan of white on white with a burst of colour too. I absolutely love the shabby-chic, vintage style but I just cannot for the life of me recreate it. The verve dt are very good at it. But it's so nice to see a more CAS design with verve products, it gives me hope that I could make something beautiful in my own style with them, thank you :)
