ReleaseScheduleGraphic

Welcome to day one of sneak peeks!  Months ago it seemed like this day was so far away and now it’s finally here!  While it seems like forever and a day ago that I was working with our illustrator on these sets, I can say that it was worth the wait.  The warm reception via comments, Facebook posts, email and even phone calls has been amazing.  THANK YOU!

I’ve created a graphic (above) to let you know how releases will work here at REVERSE CONFETTI. Our releases will always be on the 8th of the month.  Instead of monthly releases, we will have releases EVERY OTHER MONTH.  As the graphic states, sneak peek days will be on the 5th, 6th and 7th with a wrap up hop on the 8th.  (We’ll actually be hopping on the 8th of every month, but more on that later).  And, what’s a release without a prize?  Be sure to comment on each sneak post for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the REVERSE CONFETTI store.

It’s no surprise that the nautical theme is in full swing in the paper crafting industry, as well as just about everywhere you look…anchors, lighthouses and whales, oh my!

I couldn’t resist creating a nautical themed set that was full of fun and whimsy.
So, without further adieu, let me introduce to you the first of four sets being released on May 8th…

I had the idea for this next project well before the stamps were even in my hands.  I love how they turned out!  The tags and waves were cut with my Silhouette and then I stamped the whale, rope, compass and sentiment to create a happy scene.  These tags ‘n bags will be finding their way into my kiddos’ teacher’s hands for Teacher Appreciate week, and I’m sure I’ll be using this idea again for gifties and favors.
