February 2013 Spotlight Hops Day 1!!

Welcome to the first day of our February 2013 Spotlight Hops!  Today we’re shining our Verve spotlights on the new stamps Remember This, Calendar Countdown and Smile Plain Jane. Each of the release team Divas below (including 4 brand new talented designers) 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, so keep your eyes peeled! Everything you see previewed along today’s hop will be available in Verve’s online store on Friday, February 22.

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…

Today I have something a bit out of the ordinary for me. :) Project Life cards (you can find out more about Project Life here). I personally have not really ever gotten the project life bug BUT I have a bunch of friends that do so I made these cards for a friend because when I saw the stamps we are previewing today I just new they would be perfect!

Project Life Cards by Jen Shults

The cards feature the soon to be released Calendar Countdown and Remember This stamps sets as well as the SUPER cute and brand new Flag It Die Set. I kept these pretty clean and simple with space for photos or journaling as well as space to add sentiments that are handwritten.

Project Life Cards by Jen Shults for Verve Stamps

The large cards are 4″x6″ with rounded corners and the smaller cards are 3″x4″ with rounded corners – perfect to pop right into the sheet protectors!

Now it’s time to check out what the rest of the Verve Diva’s have in store for you today! (Can I just say that it’s so so so AMAZING to be able to type that!!!)
