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.

The moment I saw this particular flag die (the one I used for the sun rays) I knew I wanted to make a sun! I die cut seven flags (from the new Flag It Die Set) using some bright and sunny paper to create my sunshine rays. For the "sun" I punched out several circles and stamped the Shine Brightly sentiment (from the new Remember This set) on the top layer. I added lots of rhinestones...because suns should be sparkly, don't you think? :-)
In this close-up photo, you can see a peek of one of the new border dies (from the Scalloped Trim Trio die set)!!
In this photo, you can see the super cute little tag I created using the smallest die from the Flag It Die Set. I stamped the small Hello sentiment (also from the new Remember This set) on it and added a mini staple.
The next stop on this Vervalicious Hop is the fabulous Laurie W.!!
