Hello and welcome to our third and final day of CONFETTI CREW introductions.  I sure hope you have enjoyed meeting the members of the design team and taking a peek into their creative lives.  Each and every one of these ladies is so incredibly talented and I am so honored that they are part of REVERSE CONFETTI‘s launch!

. . . . .

The first up on the CONFETTI CREW introductions today is AMBER HIGHT.  She is another one of the Confetti Crew Design Team members that I am so lucky to have met (and enjoyed a couple of margaritas with). If you are familiar with Amber’s style, you know that her projects are always spectacularly layered and well embellished.

Hello! My name is Amber Hight and I am so excited to be on this journey with Jen!!! I met her a few months ago in person (finally!) when she came down to visit her parents. When she asked me to be a part of her first DT, I was BEYOND honored! My husband is active duty in the Air Force and we are currently living in Surprise Arizona, but that will change as soon as Uncle Sam decides we’ve been here for too long. We don’t have any two legged kids, but I do have two four-legged kids! Luke and Jesse are my labs and my pride and joy. If not found in my stamp room, I can be found with a glass of wine, cuddled up with a dog *or two* and a good book!

How were you introduced to stamping?
I started out scrapbooking. My mom sells Avon and about 8 years ago, I bought a fun little scrapbook kit from the catalog. I was a GONER from the instant I opened that box! I scrapped for awhile, and then found stamping and card-making and found that I really liked the smaller canvas and the time it took to create something was cut in half!

How would you describe your design style?
Well, if anything, I’m a layers girl! I’m not a CAS girl, that’s for sure! I like to pile on the goodies and when it looks like it’s done, I’ll pile a little more on! I love to add ribbon, buttons, and sewing on almost all of my cards, and I love bright colors but seem to gravitate towards earth tones.

What’s your best advice for finding lost mojo?
When I lose my mojo, I like to cruise my favorite blogs and pinterest! It is amazing how someone else’s creativity can really jumpstart something in yourself.

What are 2-3 of your favorite color combos?
I like black, kraft, turquoise, white, pink, red, green…I can’t come up with any specific favorites, I tend to just grab colors and go to town.

What is your favorite thing about stamping/paper crafting?
Making something with my own hands, and the sense of satisfaction I get when a friend or family member enjoys and appreciates the time it took to create that card. I also love to be creative, and since I’m not a painter, or a sewer, or drawer, stamping is my art!

Do you like using different techniques on your projects?
I’m not a big techniques girl, but if I had to choose I’d say sewing and embossing!

Where do you find inspiration?
Most of my inspiration comes from my creative friends. Whether that be on facebook, pinterest, blogs, etc. I also love to look at magazines and stamping catalogs. Sometimes, a card idea will just POP into my mind and I have to go turn it into reality before I can do anything else!

Do you listen to music while creating?
I don’t. I have a tv in my stamp room and love to catch up on my favorite tv shows on Netflix or throw my most favorite tv show in ever…SEINFELD! I can watch it all day every day, it never gets old! And I know the shows so well that I can create and still know what’s going on without watching the tv.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not creating?
READING! I’m a huge book nerd and read whenever I get a few spare minutes. My favorite genres are romance, paranormal romance, military romance, and some crime dramas. I also enjoy watching baseball. We have a pro team here in Phoenix and we got every chance we get! I like to lay out in the sun, play with my dogs, take classes, and just hang out with my sweet hubby. I am almost always on my computer too, so I’d say surfing the interwebs is a favorite pastime as well!

. . . . .

DAWN EASTON is our next introduction today.  Dawn is both beyond talented and is so sweet.  Her designs are very clean and crisp. Although I have never had the pleasure of meeting her in person, I sure hope to one day.  I have squishy hug saved up for her!

Hi there! My name is Dawn Easton and I’m SUPER excited to be joining the Reverse Confetti Crew! I’m a mom to a 13 year old named Chloe, wife of almost 19 years to my husband, Brian, and I work full time in the retail world.  We currently reside in Calgary, Alberta but the opportunity to relocate is always possible with my employer. Life can be hectic and stamping is a way for me to unwind at the end of a busy week!

How were you introduced to stamping?
I was first introduced to stamping when Chloe was in Kindergarten. I met another SAHM who was a SU! Demo. I was hooked instantly!

How would you describe your design style?
Clean, but not simple. I love a lot of layers and embellishments on my creations. Although I am trying to step out of my comfort zone and create CAS cards more often.

What’s your best advice for finding lost mojo?
There are so many creative outlets to find inspiration. From blogs, to challenges and lately Pinterest!

What are 2-3 of your favorite color combos?
Aqua and Yellow
Kraft and any colour

What is your favorite thing about stamping/paper crafting?
For me it’s quiet time. I step into my craft room and unwind by colouring an image, picking out papers and putting it all together.

Do you like using different techniques on your projects? If so, what is your favorite technique?
Not much of a technique junkie although I’m always open to trying new ideas!

Where do you find inspiration?
Sometimes I look around the house or at work I see a lot of interesting marketing ideas in the beauty industry.

Do you listen to music while creating? If so, what are 3 songs on your current playlist?
When I hit the stamp room it’s time to catch up on all my shows that are currently on my PVR.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not creating?
I enjoy hanging out with my family, shopping (mostly for craft supplies), day trips to Banff or a drive in my Camaro.

Our final CONFETTI CREW introduction is HEATHER PULVIRENTI. Heather has a wonderful eye for detail and using different elements on all of her creations.  All of her projects just seem to POP!  She’s another one that I have a squishy hug for!

My name is Heather Pulvirenti, and I live in Columbia, MD with my husband Jason, and our 8 year old daughter Lindsay.  I was born in England, and have spent most of my life in the US (in Maryland and Virginia), except for the four years we lived in Canberra, Australia (my mom was career Air Force).  I am currently a SAHM, but since my daughter is off during the day at school, I try to keep busy by filling my days working on remodeling projects around the house.

How were you introduced to stamping?
I started paper crafting about 8 years ago after being invited by my husband’s aunt to a Stampin’ Up! workshop, and I haven’t looked back since.

How would you describe your design style?
That’s a toughy! I’d say my style is sort of clean, mostly simple, and happy/cute!

What’s your best advice for finding lost mojo?
Stop stressing and start doing! Create for the joy of creating, and don’t put so much pressure on yourself…

What are 2-3 of your favorite color combos?
Coral, aqua and kraft
Light gray, lime green and hot pink
Yellow, orange, hot pink and white

What is your favorite thing about stamping/paper crafting?
Getting to make new friends from all over the globe.

Do you like using different techniques on your projects? If so, what is your favorite technique?
I try things here and there, but my all-time favorite technique is heat embossing.

Where do you find inspiration?
Everywhere! From plants/flowers to socks to wrapping paper, inspiration is all around us.

Do you listen to music while creating? If so, what are 3 songs on your current playlist?
I’m addicted to the 80s Pandora channel! My three favorites at the moment are Shadows of the Night by Pat Benatar, Warrior by Scandal, and the Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not creating?
I love working on projects around the house, rehabbing furniture to give it new life, and spending time with friends/family.
