Howdy and Happy Thursday!

Being that it’s Thursday, it’s time for CONFETTI CAMERA!

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.

Today the spotlight is on Confetti Crew member, Val Stangle


Here’s her darling Confetti Camera project using WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS (heart background), CRUSHIN’ (sentiment); SWEET TREAT TENT, LOVE NOTE, ARROW and TAG ME Confetti Cuts…

For my project today I created shortened Sweet Treat Tent candy treat containers for my mom’s critique group luncheon.  Die cuts don’t always have to be used as is and in this picture tutorial I will show you how I shortened them to create a smaller, more compact, treat holder to hold 4 little Dove chocolate morsels for her luncheon guests.




After die cutting, shortening, stamping, die cutting a window and adhering together, it’s time to decorate the front of the treat holder.  I used the same heart from Love Note to die cut another heart from patterned paper which I topped with a gold die cut Arrow.  I adhered both to the left of the die cut heart on the Sweet Treat Tent.  A stamped banner with a Valentine greeting from Crushin’ is adhered above the hearts and arrow before adding the cello wrapped candy inside and tying it all off with a big red grosgrain knotted bow.



These will look so cute with her Valentine themed table, I can’t wait to hear what a hit they were with her artist friends!
