August Diva Inspirations Hop and NEWS!

Hi Verve fans!  It's time once again for our monthly Diva Inspirations Hop!  Today is the day the Divas share what they came up with when they dipped into the Verve vault for some fresh inspiration on some of our previously released sets and dies.

Before I get to the hop list and the news for August, we have a spectacular line-up of Guest Divas to help us celebrate our 5th Anni-VERVE-sary release! You'll see a couple of them on the hop today and you'll definitely want to bookmark their blogs because these gals are phenomenal! I'm kind of doing a little happy dance in my seat just thinking about announcing them. So here goes, let's give a big, warm Vervey welcome to our August Guest Divas:

Okay, on with the hop! As always, there's a prize hidden on one of the hop spots below. So give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around the Diva-sphere. We'll draw a random winner from one of the comments on the mystery blog to win a $25 gift certificate to Verve!

Comment deadline for the prize drawing is 8pm Mountain on August 10.

A gift certificate might come in handy, because this month we're celebrating FIVE wonderful years of Verve
So in proper celebratory style, we've made some fantastic discounts on some wonderful product! Through August 31, save 10 - 50% off select stamps and dies. Everything is on sale while supplies last, so go ahead and treat yourself to one or two, or even FIVE stampy pleasures! {grin}

Let the countdown begin: 5... 4... 3... 2... 1

The Divas are partying it up as we count down to the big kick-off of our 6th year at Verve. It's our biggest release EVER and we're so excited to share it with you! Look for a few super sneak peeks during our Anni-VERVE-sary release challenges in our SCS forum August 13-17.

And then be sure to hop back here to the Verve Blog on August 16 as we begin spotlighting the 9 new sets, 4 plain janes and 10 dies. Yep, that's a whole lot of new VERVE to get excited about! That will lead us right up to our big release party on Friday, August 24 at 9PM Eastern! Rest assured that with all those challenges and spotlights, there are plenty of prizes to be had. So tell your friends and SAVE the DATE!
