Default Release Party HERE! June 26 @ 9PM EASTERN!

It's almost time for another VERVE release!

We'll be debuting our new sets, chatting up a storm and partying Verve style! So mark your calendars for this Friday, June 26!

Diva-licious previews {with give-aways} will be starting Wednesday June 24 on the Verve Blog.


Time: 9 PM Eastern, 8 PM Central, 7 PM Mountain, 6 PM Pacific, 5 PM Alaska, 3 PM Hawaii
Please Note: If your location doesn't do daylight savings, the time listed above might be an hour off. We're on Daylight Savings time right now. I've already adjusted for Hawaii.
And here are a few links to time conversion for other places around the world: Australia/Pacific, Asia, Europe

Where: Same bat channel. We'll see you here on this thread! Feel free to chat it up all week long, if you want!

Here's the party itinerary (times are approximate - I'm known to get distracted!)

9:00PM - Plain Janes Reveal
9:15 PM - Mini Set Reveal
9:30 PM - Set 1 Reveal
9:45 PM - Set 2 Reveal
10:00 PM Winners Announcement
10:15 PM Set 3 Reveal
10:30 PM - Sale info and Shopping BEGINS!


Welcome new Verve fans!!! A couple of tips to help you once we get started:

1. F5 refreshes your page. You'll want to do this often cause we chat a lot!

2. Don't try to go back and read to catch up, or you'll find yourself with 10 pages to read. Just jump in and catch what you can!

3. When you go back to the forum, you can click on the little paper clip icon next to the thread to see all the sneak peeks shown in the thread during the party.

4. The winners and set reveals will be posted in This Thread. I usually keep both tabs open.

5. HAVE FUN!!! We're a silly group...and we love new friends!

And don't miss Mr. Verve's Party Pick!!! Tonight we're giving away the ENTIRE RELEASE to a random poster here in this party thread, so be sure to chat it up! He'll draw a random post number and we'll announce the winner with the rest of the winners at approximately 10 PM!

I can't wait for the party! I'm loving what I've seen so far. But then, I love them more and more each month. I've found that I can't help but make classy cards when I use these sets. They just have that feel to them! Now... if only I could win the entire release...

Junk! I just realized that we're logged in under my dd's screen name! That's ok... she wouldn't mind winning the entire release either!!

Whew! I'm back under my own name.

Hey, Julee - the set you previewed today looks like it would be a really neat one for monogrammed stationery. Any chance of getting a Vervilicious alphabet???

That's a good idea. I'll have to put it on my list of ideas.

Okay, all the sugar cookies have been baked, decorated and consumed by the kids in my kids' classrooms at their year end parties. Wish you lived closer, Julee, I would have dropped some off for you. My DD LOVES cats and we have a cat head shaped pancake maker that we use as a cookie cutter. I bake them and then we decorate them -- smarties for eyes and pink icing for whiskers, forehead stripes, mouth and ears. They really are cute, and good! I think Katie would approve LOL

All sketches are done -- treating myself to LOTS of stamp time before school gets out tomorrow -- so now what??!! Guess there is the SCS sketch this week or some mojo sketches I didn't get a chance to do

Just two more sleeps till party time For once, DH is NOT traveling or returning from a trip this time -- even he commented on it LOL! -- so I can party guilt free. Can't wait to see what you've come up with this time round and have all my fingers, toes, arms, legs, kids' fingers, toes, arms and legs crossed for me to hopefully win some Vervalicious goodies this time round....pleeeeeeease. Okay, enough begging, and babbling, it's getting late and I"m getting punchy with the lack of sleep this week (mind you I'm sure yours has been even more hectic than mine, Julee, so who am I to complain!!).

Oh I just can't sleep. I want to go stamp. Something must be wrong with me. I went to Shakespeare Festival (playing The Seagull) tonight and all I could think of were the parts to one of the sketchs sitting in my craft room. LOL. Great sketchs Julee.

Oh, those sound so cute, Marisa! Katie approves of any and all sugar cookies. She's not usually tempted by any food we leave out, but there's something about sugar cookie crumbs and streusel topping that gets her little lips asmacking! I always have to clean up my coffee cake plates in a hurry or she's all over them! LOL

Oh, I love the Shakespeare Festival! I wish we could go to all the shows! We usually only make one a year though. We're going in July to The Mystery of Edwin Drude with Mark's work.

Oh I'll be right over!

FYI- The Seagull at Shakespeare was VERY well acted, but it was a bit...a lot depressing. Four of us went and 2 liked it and the other 2 didn't. It's by a russian writer about Russia life in the early 1900's (I think) and very glum characters. Blah, blah, blah...I wish I could have been doing the fab release sketches instead. Don't tell DH.

Arrrgggghhh! Not even fair! DD & I are gluten free so we can't eat anything made with regular flour anymore. BUT in honor of the Verve release party, we did pick up a box of Betty Crocker's *new* gluten free brownie mix.

Is it tomorrow yet??????????????

You'll have to tell us/me how it tastes. I saw that in the store the other day and wondered if they would satisfy a brownie craving.

I'll let you know. We did find a great substitute for smores just now... Two chocolate covered shortbread cookies by Schar, some Hershey's chocolate and a marshmallow roasted over a candle. Mmmmmmm.... good!!!

I'm by no means a domestic goddess and Mark is a very good cook and does quite a bit of the cooking. But, I SLAVED over that coffee cake with my own two hands this morning! It's hard opening that Krusteaz box and following directions, ya know! LOL

HI Julee!! Just wanted to say hello and wish you the very best in the new release! The previews look simply Verve-a-licious!! And I love the idea of monogrammed stationary!! My parents and family are visiting us this week - and we have been doing day trips which is fun - but not much time in the stamp corner - or these days - the stamp closet I am not sure if will be at home tomorrow night for the party (will try) but just wanted to pop by and send you a hug! All the Divas have totally rocked out and spun some amazing samples!!
Lots of hugs from sunny Iowa

Yeah, another non-domestic woman LOL My DH is a gourmet cook and since I dont' enjoy cooking it works out quite well. I can bake and do breakfast meals (my favorite meal of the day) and salads, but a main course meal will stress me out big time. DH was almost going to be away for Thanksgiving and we had family coming as well as a few friends so I was FREAKING out because I had never cooked a turkey before and had visions of a far from eatable bird. Lucky for me I got off the hook. Yup, being DH's sues chef is the place for me LOL

Oh, I've never made a turkey either. Well, my college buddy and I "TRIED" to make a turkey, and it was an epic failure! We didn't know you had to thaw it like a whole day in advance. Then we couldn't figure out which way was which. We kept calling her dad, and I just about lost it when he told me we were going to have to stick our hands INSIDE the bird to pull out the little packet thingy? EXCUSE ME??? I think we ended up getting a pizza instead, because that bird did not get cooked! LOL

Too funny Julee!! My first turkey, I cooked it WITH all the little packaged things still tucked safely inside the turkey's unmentionables.....Your coffee cake looks awesome!! You sure know how to follow directions!!!

Lucky for me I got off the hook. Yup, being DH's sues chef is the place for me LOL
I wish my husband cooked! I hate cooking, love eating though but my cooking kindof ruins your taste buds...my poor kids!

I tried to follow the Gina K release last night, but had many interruptions, maybe I'll have better luck tonight!
