Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Merry Halloween Eve…or as I’ve seen it called Elsaween. Just how many Elsa costumes will we be seeing tomorrow? I’m glad that my kids did not go the Frozen route (I’m Frozened out!) and will be dressing up as a pirate and a vampire. Yes, my 4 year old is going to be a vampire…”with bloooood,” as he says. Needless to say, it should be interesting. Let’s see if I can remember to take pictures!

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 an ANYTHING BUT A CARD project 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.
Today on Confetti Camera we have the very kindhearted and over the top talented, AMY SHEFFER…

Hi everyone, Amy here today for this week’s Confetti Camera installment. Today, I’ve created a gift for a very dear friend who is undergoing chemo treatments for breast cancer. She is nearing the end of her eighteen treatments, and I thought I’d give her a way to count down the very last of these treatments and get to the finish line.
The outer packaging is a matchbook-style wrap, with the bound side held together with a binder clip.
For the front label, I used the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, topped with a circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts. The sentiment is made up of the word “count” from COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, plus the word “chemo” and “down,” which were done by combining individual letters in the same font from a whole bunch of different sets. I added in some die-cuts for extra design elements: DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts, PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts.
On the inside are three tiny paper gift sacks, one for each chemo treatment that’s left. The outsides of the each bag are numbered, and the inside has a motivational tag (plus a Ghirardelli chocolate square).
The #1 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts, and TAG ME Confetti Cuts. The tag inside uses the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts again, as well as a sentiment from WINNING and a star accent from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts.
One last view, from the side:
This same idea could easily be repurposed for any type of countdown, or simply used as a mini-album for photos, a collection of favorite quotes, funny kid sayings, even a collection of gift cards for a teacher or coach.
