Verve May Spotlight - Day 4

Friday, May 10, 2013

Welcome to day 4 of our May 2013 Spotlight Hops!  Today we're shining our Verve spotlights on the new stamps Teachers Count, Apple Die Set, All Occasion, Occasion Frame Die and Promoted Plain Jane. Each of the release team Divas and Guest Divas below 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 and ribbons, so keep your eyes peeled! Everything you see previewed along today's hop will be available in Verve's online store on Friday, May 10.

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...


This has been an amazing week for me because I actually got to participate in a Verve blog hop that showcases the new stamps that will be available in the Verve store TONIGHT!!!  A Verve stamp was the very first clear stamp that I ever purchased and I am as amazed now as I was then at Julee's beautiful images and creative and meaningful sentiments.  I've had a blast this week and now it's time to show you my final project for the blog hop.


Since the end of the school year is fast approaching, I thought it would be a good idea to make a card and a small gift featuring some of the stamps from Teachers Count.  I know that a lot of people like to give small gifts to their child's teacher and this stamp set is perfect for that.  I made a small square card with a sentiment that says it all, plus a little pillow box gift box that will hold a gift card.  I think you'll agree that the sentiments in this set are designed to show all the teachers in our lives how much we appreciate them and influence they have made on us!

If you've been following along on the blog hop you should have arrived here from Andrea's blog.  And next up is Laurie W.  But if you just stumbled here, then below you will find the Master Hop List!
