Hello and welcome to the August Blog Hop!


This is the start of the hop.

There is a full list of hoppers toward the end of this post in case you get lost along the way.

As the graphic above suggests, there is a TON of AWESOME inspiration from not only the best design team anyone could ask for, The Confetti Crew, but also from some very, very special guests, or as we like to call them ‘FETTI FRIENDS!

So, grab that cuppa joe, sit back, relax and click on through this amazingly fun blog hop!  Don’t forget to leave a comment on each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Comments close Monday night and a winner will be announced on Tuesday’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY post.  Enjoy the ride and good luck!

My card for the hop combines two of the sets from our latest release: Celebrate Cake (from our Key Words Collection) and Whole Lotta Dots


“Time For Cake & Ice Cream” is just one of the MANY sentiments you can create using this versatile set (see graphic at end of post).  I used it here as part of the banner on the card…


Both yellow panels were stamped with the large dots from the Whole Lotta Dots set in VersaMark watermark ink to give a subtle, but cute, detail to those panels.  The “Happy Birthday” and “Celebrate” sentiments were stamped repeatedly and I just love how they “pop” against all the color on this card…


Here’s the card on a gift bag using one Laurie Willison’s (‘a FETTI FRIEND!) card hanger dies.  As you can see I cut it out using the same aqua cardstock on the card itself, and then I stamped it with the smaller solid dots from Whole Lotta Dots

Before I send you on your way, let me introduce you to our August ‘FETTI FRIENDS (links to their blogs on the hop list)..

A HUGE thank you to these wonderfully talented ladies for joining us this month!
