How our release parties work: I've posted the August 2012 REVEALS & WINNERS thread with the schedule of events for tonight's party. This lists the times that each set reveal and the winners announcements will be made during the party.

We just chat it up in this thread right here. Things go fast, so just jump right in and say hi! You can hit the F5 key on your computer to refresh the screen to the most recent posts.

I'll post pictures in the REVEALS thread as each set is revealed and post a link here in the chat. As each set is revealed, our fabulous design team will be attaching pictures to this chat thread of the gorgeous samples they've created using the new sets. It's easy and a lot of fun, so if you're new just jump right in. We love making new friends!

Oh, and if you have email notifications turned on, you might want to turn them off so you don't get a bazillion messages from this thread. Once you post a comment in the thread, you're automatically subscribed to the thread and by default you'll get email notifications, unless you've adjusted your profile settings. {You can unsubscribe by clicking the arrow by the Thread Tools in the upper right section of the page, then choosing Unsubscribe from this thread. Or if you're already getting emails, you can click the unsubscribe link in your first email notification.}

woohoo! I usually like to arrive a few minutes late to a party...but I couldn't resist starting right now! I wish I were in Hawaii, so I could start the party early on Friday {wink!}. You sure know how to throw a celebration, Julee :) This release is out of this world!

ravengirl 08-20-2012 08:09 PM

I'm so glad I stopped by and read all the details! I'm thinking about a work stoppage on the home front until I play along with all the Verve challenges. Do you think that will fly?

Funny you should say that ... that's my plan exactly!! I wasn't able to get any of the challenges done last week, so this week EVERYTHING is on hold until I have completed all the Verve challenges! (and maybe some more, just for fun! Te he!)

I'm not sure how I'm going to get away with it either, but we are crafty women, we can make it fly! (pun was entirely intended!!)

Really enjoying this anniversary celebration-thanks so much to Julee and la Divas! ;)

T. Joy 08-21-2012 04:21 AM

Yay! I'm all caught up on challenges and hopping! Tomorrow dd gets her wisdom teeth out, so I won't be doing much but taking care of her. I should still be able to hop, but I won't have time to stamp, so I'm glad I'm ahead of the game for once!!

whiterockmama 08-21-2012 07:44 AM

Thank heavens for WiFi on the Island and a Kindle Fire so I can at least get the bloc hop commenting done and see some previews. Will be busy completing the challenges when we get home. Can't wait to party and see the whole sets - I solo need some new Verge (I hate auto correct on this Kindle! As it won't let me type some words!!!)

darbaby 08-21-2012 09:16 AM

I am so enjoying the hops and peeks at the new Verve coming on Friday. My wallet is going to be suffering big time as of Friday night.
I'm so looking forward to the Release Party.:D

Marisa, I was wondering about your spell check ....so it's the Kindle Fire you're typing on.....sorry it's causing you grief.:(

It's a real pain!!! Was going to say b-u-t-t but it changes it to Bert!! Won't take the stamp company name either...back home tomorrow so all will be back to normal :) Can't complain too much as it has let me stay connected. Will have to do some research to see to fix that issue. Need to pound out two more challenge cards when I get home too - can't wait as I have missed my stamping time but sure enjoyed our time away as a family :) Vancouver Ismael is a beautiful part of the world and I have the best in-laws!!

I bet it is something you can change in the settings if it's anything like and iPad or iPhone. It sounds like what it is doing is called auto-complete; it thinks it knows the words you are wanting to type and takes over. If you go into settings you should be able to turn that off. ;)

stamptician 08-21-2012 04:16 PM

I am so excited about this release party!! I love that you had additional challenges for it and the customer card carnival. That is so cool Julee! Way to go. I would love to have it all but, I took a cut in hours earlier this year due to some restructuring in my company and there is no way I can spend $300 on stamps right now. I'm trying really hard to complete all the Anni-VERVE-sary challenges so that I'll have a chance at the prize for the entire release and I'm also trying to do the card carnival. But, life happens and my Brother-in-Law's Mom lost her battle with Cancer early this morning. (It's the lady I mentioned when I created this card) So, I've spent the past several hours over at their house and talk about something that will zap your ability to feel creative...this is definitely it. But, I'm gonna try again tomorrow.
Regardless, I am definitely looking forward to the release party on Friday!

nlsmith68 08-21-2012 04:24 PM

You guys are so funny! Maybe we can write work absence excuses for each other. You're feeling a bit feverish (with excitement), aren't you, Sian? ;)

I can't miss work...trying to wrack up a little overtime to PAY for all the Verve just in case I don't win! LOL.

nlsmith68 08-21-2012 04:28 PM

Jennipher, I'm so sorry for your family's loss. Praying for some peace and that you'll be renewed by God's grace. Hugs.

I'm so sorry Jennipher! What a hard time for your family!!

stamptician 08-21-2012 08:27 PM

Thanks Nicole and Tricia for the kind words. It means so much to me. Right now my heart is just broken for my brother-in-law and his brother and sisters.The Memorial Service is on Friday morning. So by the time Friday night rolls around, I could really use the excitement and fun that is always generated in a Verve release party thread.

scrapper79 08-22-2012 08:52 AM

Excited!! I have two cards in the carnival already and hoping to get to these challenges today!! ;) I just ordered some sale items and can't wait to look at the new stuff!!

I feel for you Marisa........that would be sooooo frustrating for me. Hopefully you are home now and back to normal typing/posting, even though you wouldn't have wanted to miss the time with your in-laws.

Thanks Darlene :) Nothing like having Verge show up instead of Verve - ugh! Finally home and typing on a keyboard is MUCH better than a flat tablet!! Now just have to catch up on missed challenges - going to be a busy two days :) but hey, will do just about anything for a chance at winning some Verve!

I hear your re: a restricted budget Jennipher and have a busy day ahead of me tomorrow to get the rest of the challenges done - well worth it though :) So sorry to hear about your loss....cancer is such an aweful disease. Big cyber hug to you!!

Thanks Marissa. I just finished up the last challenge. Phew! There would be no time tomorrow before the deadline as the Memorial Service is at 11 a.m. and then I have to report to work after, since this is extended family and not my immediate family. I really appreciate the cyber hugs. Those are the best kind. ;)

Hey ladies!

I'm sorry to hear your terrible news, I hope the memorial is a nice an occasion as it can be for you all.

I think everyone's on a restricted budget hey?! I understand the stress it causes too. I lost my job a few months ago and just cannot get anything else! At the same time my other half had a few days a week cut at his job so we had a minor panic for a while! So, I feel ya! But ya know what, it must be for a reason and when I work it out I'll let you know! Ha ha!!

On the up side, I've had much more time for crafting - whoop! I have an entrepreneurial streak, so hopefully I can find a nice profitable niche somewhere and not have to sorry about working for anyone else again! Verve does promote dreaming big!! :)

And it's RELEASE DAY! Woohoo! I'd just like to wish everyone good luck in all the amazing prize draws! And Julee, thank you so much for SO many opportunities to win, and win big I might add! Everyone's creations are so fantastic, I hope it's drawn by random org else Julee and the divas are going to have a nightmare choosing the winners!!

Can't wait to see the new Verve, may even set my alarm for 3am .... maybe! ;)

Sian 08-23-2012 10:20 PM

Ugh, I got bitten by the auto correct bug!! That was supposed to say *worry* not *sorry*! Bloody iPhone!! :)

pamshobby 08-24-2012 06:19 AM

Woot, woot ... release day! I'm so excited and can't wait to see the full reveal! This is my first time to participate in the Verve challenges. I'm just starting my collection and hope to keep building it!

Thank you Divas for a lot of fun this week and all your gorgeous cards! I'm off to make a Verve card for the carnival ... yay!

See you all tonight!

No, you're right, that would absolutely not do! I'll have to double check every time I type that now! Ha ha!

Oh Moe! You're making me feel bad! I'll do my best to make it to the shindig at some point! Although, it's 10pm here now and I'm just going to bed-how rock n roll am I!!? :)

Laters, Diva :)

Ugh, autocorrect gets me every time Marisa! I could quite believe that it was invented just to wind me up! ;)

I'm in good old Blighty my darling :) maybe I'll have to move to the states next year so I can join in the release party fun!!! ;)

Marsha Drain 08-24-2012 01:29 PM

So sad - I'm going to miss the party tonight. But I have had so much fun with these challenges and LOVE the new release. Have fun tonight girls.

rositagustafson72 08-24-2012 01:38 PM

Wow it looks like the party already started. I just got done doing todays blog hop. It sure has been fun with all the challenges and hopping. Well I better go pick up kids be back for the party.

Tangerine Dream 08-24-2012 01:43 PM

The peeks have been awesome! Julee your team is amazingly talented and VERY kind with their chatter and comments :)

Sian 08-24-2012 02:18 PM

Ok, I may have made a mistake. I just wanted to double check the time difference between the UK and the US (EST) and now it's telling me it's a five hour difference, not six! The Internet was telling me porky pies!

I used to stay up until 2am no problem, getting old now though! Wish me luck! If I don't make it, have a ball everyone! ;)
