JUNE SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

How is it June already?  Don’t get me wrong, I am thankful that this year is flying by.  For those of you following my breast cancer treatments/journey…I have now completed chemo and this month I will be having surgery.  Following surgery, I will have radiation plus one drug via infusion for the remainder of one year.  Like I said, I am glad this year is flying by and will be so happy when I get to wave all of this good-bye!  Thank you all for your love and support.   I will keep you posted as my journey continues.

One quick note, before I dive into the “meat” of this post…

Notice anything different?  We launched our new site yesterday.  You’ll see that it looks quite a bit like the old site, but we’ve made some changes and some serious upgrades.  A lot of those on are on the “back side” so you may not immediately notice them, but trust me…we really made some great changes.  Thank you for your patience as we implemented the site yesterday.

Well, you know what a new month means…a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!

Before I get to all the wonderful inspiration that the Confetti Crew came up with using this sketch, let’s go over the details…

There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.

The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th. The SFYTT button is posted on the sidebar.  Click on it to be taken to the current SFYTT post and link list.

Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!

You may enter as many times as you wish.

There will be a winner each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog at the end of the month.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS – VIDEO

Hi there, Amy S. with this week’s Wednesday in the Works project and video.

In today’s video, I am sharing how to make a cute Tic Tac (or other treat)
wrap using the Round Top Tag Confetti Cuts die set.

To make the wrap, I started with a piece of Stone cardstock measuring 9
3/4″ x 2″. I scored at 1 1/2″, 4 1/2″ 5 1/4″ and 8 1/4″. Next, I die-cut
the handles on both ends, first rounding the ends by partially cutting just
the top half of the Round Top Tag Confetti Cuts die, and then die-cutting the handle using the semi-circle die that’s also in that set.

After creating the wrap, I decorated it using the Take Flight and Miso
Happy stamps and dies and a tiny bit of patterned paper from the Pattern
Play paper 6×6 paper pad.

The circle tag is from the Goodie Box Additions Confetti Cuts set and the
“smile” sentiment is from Later Alligator.

Thanks for joining me today!
