Anni-VERVE-sary Spotight, Day Four: Better With You



It's already Day Four of our Anni-Verve-sary spotlights -- only two more sleeps until Friday night's release party. I can't wait for you to see these sets in full! This is such an amazing release!!

Remember, one lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure to leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines. Today's featured sets are Better With You and Sip and Savor. We're also spotlighting From the Heart, a set of four adorable heart dies.

 From the Heart Die Set is our Anni-VERVE-sary special. It will be available exclusively as a free gift with orders $35 and over through August 31, while supplies last. From the Heart will be available for purchase in September.

 I am a die-hard coffee- and tea-drinker, so today's featured sets are right up my alley! I started with a mug and sentiment from Better With You and combined them with some bright, cheery Echo Park papers to make a fun encouragement or get well card for a fellow coffee lover. The mug is paper pieced and layered onto two Notebook Paper Plain Janes (part of yesterday's hop).



Better With You has a little bit of everything, right down to some super cute steam! Here's your hop list for today!

  60. Ah, the master of color strikes again! What a great design, love the arrangement of those panels and the coordination of all the colors. I try to always pick out how you tie all your colors together...for every color, there is usually one accent of the same color. Fascinating how you do that so {seemingly} easily. I'm learning from you...the master!
