Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!
Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I had a wonderful birthday filled with food, family and fun! In addition to turning 29 (again!), it was my lil’ man’s first day of school. Here’s a pic of the two of us…
After we dropped him off, my hubby and I headed to IKEA to pick up the last piece of my office transformation. Once that piece is built, I will be sharing pics. Stay tuned!

We have another great Confetti Camera here for you today!
In this weekly segment, one of the Confetti Crew designers will have the camera on both themselves, as a designer, and on their Reverse Confetti creations. For this round, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from a fun tip or technique from each of our designers. A couple of things to note:
1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such on Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.
2) Each designer will answer the same set of questions/show a tip until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member (then it’s a new round with new questions/theme). To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.
3) For this round we are focusing on ABC (anything but a card) projects. Keep your eyes peeled for some fabulous ways to use your Reverse Confetti stamps!
Today on Confetti Camera we have the very sweet and wonderfully talented, LEIGH PENNER…
I started with some Webster’s Pages patterned paper to scrapbook this photo of my daughter and I. I was inspired by the Fabulous Flamingo sentiment: “what makes you different makes you beautiful” and wanted to use it for the title of my page. However, I decided to change the last word to “amazing” & to spell it out on my layout using chipboard letters.
For the sentiment, I die cut some patterned paper using the rounded edge rectangle die from Class Act Confetti Cuts and masked the sentiment so as to not stamp “beautiful”. Then I tucked this behind my photo and added a super sweet coordinating charm.
I cut my patterned paper into a 3″ square and stamped a So Stripey stamp in this fun purple colour. For my flamingo, I stamped the head & body in the same purple, but stamped it off once first, before stamping it onto the patterned paper. Then I stamped the legs and beak in sweet blush. I finished it off by stamping “beautiful” from the same Fabulous Flamingo sentiment.
For my journaling, I die cut another panel from the notebook patterned paper using the same Class Act Confetti Cuts die, trimmed off the one edge and wrote out my journaling with my Sharpie. A couple of buttons and twine finish it off.”
