As you know, I have been undergoing treatment for breast cancer since January.  Last Wednesday was my last big chemo and I am happy that this hurdle is now behind me.  Here’s a pic of me from Wednesday (holding up my ASU pitchforks to represent the 6th treatment)…

I still have a long road ahead of me with surgery, radiation and more meds.  I am thankful for good doctors…and good insurance.  Sadly, many women with breast cancer suffer not only from the cancer (and the yucky treatments), but also suffer financially.  With this in mind, I knew that I had to do something.  A few months ago, Jennifer McGuire introduced me to THE PINK FUND at a LulaRoe party.  I am so happy that she did as I think this is such a wonderful cause to support.  Jennifer will be joining us tomorrow for some additional inspiration using the ONE DAY AT A TIME set.

The Pink Fund provides 90 day non-medical cost-of-living expenses to breast cancer patients in active treatment for breast cancer, so they can focus on healing, raising their families, and returning to the workplace.

Proceeds from our new set, ONE DAY AT A TIME, will be donated to THE PINK FUND.  If you are able, we highly encourage you to donate on their site, too.  You can do that HERE.

ONE DAY AT A TIME

This set contains positive and uplifting sentiments meant to boost the spirits of those in need.

Before I share my first project today, I would also like to introduce you to the latest stencil in our lineup…

LEAF LATTICE

I combined the ONE DAY AT A TIME sentiment set with the LEAF LATTICE Stencil and the (previously released) BUTTERFLY DREAMS Confetti Cuts die set to create this card…

I started by stamping the sentiment, “brave, brilliant, resilient” in NAVY ink on the card base.  I used the stencil along with transparent embossing paste on the ICED AQUA cardstock strip to create the panel on the right.  I added the NAVY cardstock mat/strip as it really needed something to anchor it.

I used Distress Oxide inks and on the butterfly cuts and then added them to the card.

I have two more introductions for you today before I send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew has created…

SIMPLY SENTIMENTS

ROUND TOP TAG

Can I just say that I LOVEEEEE  the ROUND TOP TAG!  I decided to use it a bit differently here and created a little treat holder by taking 2 and scoring about 1 inch from the bottom on each and attaching them together…

The stripes are stamped in LIME GREEN, PIGGY BANK, SUNSHINE and ICED AQUA ink atop the ROUND TOP TAG.  I then stamped the “You Are Awesome” sentiment in NAVY on top…

I attached the heart topper, from the HANG UPS, TOO Confetti Cuts die set (cut from SUNSHINE Cardstock) on top and added a button tied off with MIDNIGHT BLUE Twine.

Inside is a sweet treat…

. . . . .

I had so much fun making the first treat holder, I decided to make another!  This one, as you can see, is a little different…

To create this one, I used 4 ROUND TOP TAG Confetti Cuts, scored them about an inch from the top and created a box.  I added the striped paper from the new PATTERN PLAY 6×6 Paper Pad to the front of each panel, tied a ribbon around and filled it with a bunch of delicious caramels…a perfect easy peasy treat box!

Here’s a peek of the inside/how it was constructed…

You’ve gotta see what the Confetti Crew has come up with using these fun new products.  You may even see a couple other new products along the way, too!  Don’t forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way to have a chance to win a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store!
