Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!
As many of you know, Verve is celebrating its 5th anniversary this month and the party is just getting started! Come join us over the next 9 days as we showcase the 23 new stamps and dies releasing from Verve! We'll be counting down the minutes and revealing all the new sets in our forum from 9-11pm Eastern on Friday, August 24, so make plans now to join us for our release party!
In the meantime, we've got a fun filled hop for you today! So let your fingers do the clicking and peek into the creative minds of Verve's talented Divas and Guest Divas as they give you a little tour of what's to come! Inspiration abounds, and so do the PRIZES!
That's right! We've picked a mystery blog from today's hop and hidden a prize! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list. We’ll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured sets and dies. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.

Today's hop features a new set, With Love, a new Plain Jane, Birthday To You, and a new border die, the Pennant Trim Die. I've combined all three to create this cheery birthday card. The sentiment is the Birthday To You Plain Jane, which I inked up in three different colors and die-cut with the Curvy Bookplate Die. The sweet little paper-pieced cupcakes are from the With Love set. (By the way I'm really digging the variety in this set! A good all-around, all-purpose set is always a win, don't you think?) Behind the cupcakes and pom-pom trim is the Pennant Trim Die. I squealed when I first saw this and haven't stopped since! Here's a closer look at all the new goodies:
I used this week's Deconstructed Sketch for my layout (with maybe a few extras - I hope you'll still be able to find the sketch in my card!):
