Hopping along with us this week is a super talented Guest Diva!  I've been watching Monika work magic with stamps for several years now and am ecstatic to have her as our guest this  month.  Here's a little bit about her in her own words...

Hi, my name is Monika Davis aka buzsy. I live in beautiful New Hampshire with my two boys and supportive hubby. I work part time in the after-school program at my sons' school. I was born and raised in Hungary, but have been living in the US for 18 years. I’ve been stamping on and off for about 13 years. It’s my passion, my hobby, and my lifestyle! Through crafting I’ve made so many wonderful friends. It is a caring community with so much love and positive energy. I’ve been on a number of design and challenge teams, and have been published in a number of magazines. I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Verve Stamps team! 

Okay, now that you know the who... it's time for the what. 
Today's set reveal is the first in a One Word series from illustrator, Chaitali Narla.  

Cupcakes is a build-a-cupcake set illustrated by Chaitali Narla.  Along with builder pieces for super fun cupcakes, this set has several witty sentiments that begin or end with the word cupcakes.  Even better, there's more of this One Word line of stamps in store, which interchange wonderfully to give you tons of possibilities.  Cupcakes will retail for $18 and includes 20 clear photopolymer stamps on a 4" x 8" acetate sheet.

We've also got a fun new sequin mix releasing!
It's shiny and bright and filled with Vervey goodness in turquoise, brown, silver and white!

All of the products featured this week will be available for purchase in the Verve Store on Saturday, August 30.

Thanks so much for hopping with us today!  Have a great day and we'll see you back here tomorrow for some more fresh new looks at VERVE!
