A little bit about Confetti Camera…

In this weekly (Thursday) 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 each of our designers are working on Celebrations!  However, there is a little something different…I have challenged them to forego birthdays and to “think outside the card.”  I think you are going to LOVE what you see!

A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will follow the same theme 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.

Up in the spotlight today is my friend and Confetti Crew member, AMY KOLLING…

Hello!  Amy Kolling here with the next Confetti Camera!  This round we were challenged to create something for a Celebration…..but no birthdays!  Since the spring time is extremely busy for our family with softball/baseball tournaments before the season even starts, I thought I would get a head start on a teacher gift set because teachers need celebrated and they certainly need thank you notes!

Now, I did not reinvent the wheel here…….I did this tutorial YEARS ago on my blog so I thought I would bring it back to life with Reverse Confetti products!  To make this project easier, I used a Scor-Pal and Scor-Buddy.  I could not craft without these tools!  Let’s see the finished project and then get to the step by step process.

I started with 3 pieces of cardstock…..Kraft panel is 7″ x 11″.  The two red pieces measure 6 3/4″ x 5″ and 5 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ respectively.  I scored my kraft panel at the 5″ and 6″ lines on my Scor-Pal.

I scored the larger of the two red cardstock pieces at 1/2″ and 1″ on three sides.  This created the pocket to hold my notecards.

Next, I scored the smaller of the two red cardstock pieces at 1/4″ and 1/2″ on three sides.  This created the pocket to hold my envelopes.

I then cut away the corners of both pieces where all the scoring came together.  Next, I applied my favorite strong adhesive……..Scor-Tape.  This by far works the best for a project like this!  Next, comes assembly and the fun part!

I created a set of notecards using the Office Edges Confetti Cuts.  I used the notebook edge to make notebook paper shaped cards for my pocket.  To embellish my notecards, I’ve stamped images from Class Act and die cut using the Class Act Confetti Cuts.  Super simple!

To finish the front of my project, I stamped one of the images from So Many Stars in Versamark on a red cardstock panel and layered it with black to make it pop off the kraft cover.  Again, I used the Class Act stamps and Confetti Cuts to embellish the panel.  I added the panel to my cover with foam adhesive and added a ribbon underneath and around to secure with a bow on the side.
