It’s Friday…hip hip hooray!  All week I’ve been off on my days, so this Friday seems to have been a long time coming.  It’s been a good start to summer over here… I spent time with friends, old and new; got a little bit of sunshine by the pool and worked on projects for the JULY 8th REVERSE CONFETTI RELEASE. All in all, I can say it was a good week.  Now, if all those pesky piles of laundry would fold themselves!  I swear I could use a minion…or three!  Can anyone else relate?

Being that it is Friday, time is running out for you to get your entry in to be a ‘Fetti Find!  Weekly Finds will be announced Monday and VOTING FOR THE ‘FETTI FAVE will also begin.  The ‘Fetti Fave will receive the ENTIRE NEXT RELEASE and be invited to join the Confetti Crew for sneak peeks and the new release hop.  Get your Reverse Confetti creation from this week uploaded HERE today!

Time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we shine the spotlight on Confetti Crew creations from this past week…

Laurie made my jaw drop with this fresh, fun and bold card using DREAM IN COLOR (now back in stock).

Heather’s card using HAPPY HARBOR and DREAM IN COLOR used her daughter’s personality as inspiration (love that!)…

Val, too, used HAPPY HARBOR for a completely different look.  I simply adore this card.

Hello and Happy Monday, sweet friends!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  I think I need another weekend to recover from this past weekend!  Saturday was my daughter’s party (see Saturday’s blog hop post for all the crafty details). Here’s the topper atop an actual cupcake as I promised…

CupcakesWTopper

Sunday was a little of this and a little of that.  We (meaning mostly Tony) started a backyard landscape project.  Looks like a trip to Home Depot for a few things is in order this week.  I wonder how the kids will feel about that.  A little fro-yo bribery might be in order!

. . . . .

Being that it is Monday, it’s time to announce the new ‘Fetti Finds (YAY!).  As always, there were so many great entries!  Thank you all for playing and I look forward to seeing your Reverse Confetti creations each week!

This week’s ‘Fetti Finds are…

BLOG HOP!

BlogHopGraphic

Howdy and Happy weekend, ‘Fetti Fans!  Today we are bringing you lots of inspiration with our monthly blog hop (always on the 8th…just remember “8 is great!”). This is the start of the hop and below is the hop order.  As you will see, we have lots of Reverse Confetti inspiration from the Confetti Crew, as well as some friends that helped us launch just one month ago.  So grab that cuppa joe and sit back, relax and enjoy the hop!  Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the REVERSE CONFETTI shop!

. . . . .

Today, here in the del Muro house we are celebrating my daughter Ellie’s birthday (a little early) and the beginning of summer.  We’re kicking off the first Saturday of summer vacation with a little party with some Reverse Confetti touches here and there.  It’s a splash party, so I took the fish from the HAPPY HARBOR set and created some coordinating party ensemble pieces.

Since the party will be outside and be buffet style, I thought it would be nice to create plasticware set-ups that are easy to grab and go as you go down the line.  I stamped the fish multiple times on plain ol’ copy paper, cut it into strips (they are 4.25″ long) and wrapped it around the napkin and plasticware.  I really wanted to add some orange curling ribbon or baker’s twine, but I had to go with being more practical since the majority of the attendees are 7 years old…

HH_setups

I might be baking the cupcakes as you are reading this.  I don’t like making them until the day of so that they are fresh from the oven.  However, I did make the cupcake toppers ahead of time.  I simply stamped the fish repeatedly on white cardstock,  matted it and hot glued a pick to it.  The starfish toppers were cut from the Silhouette.  I’ll be sure to share a pic of these on top of the oh.so.fresh cupcakes next week…

HH_cupcakepicks

Finally, I created favors and, again, incorporated this lil’ fish.  The sentiment was printed on cardstock from the computer and adhered to a tag that was cut with my Silhouette.  I added some sequins and rhinestones for a little added sparkle and tied the tag onto the favor box that is wrapped in pink polka dot cardstock…

      HH_favorstack HH_favortag

What’s inside you ask?  Since I am “allergic” to passing out plastic junk, but mostly to keep with the theme, I added goldfish, Swedish fish and aqua colored Sixlets (to look like “bubbles”)…

HH_favorsinside

The bad part about all these bits and pieces…they will probably all end up in the trash!  At least they’ll look cute until then!  LOL!

Howdy, fans, friends and family!  Anyone else super happy that it’s Friday!  I am, for sure!  This weekend is my daughter’s birthday party and I am loving how it’s all coming together.  I’ll be sharing some of the Reverse Confetti touches here on the blog tomorrow for our blog hop.  As for today, I have a few projects to share from the Confetti Crew…

I love how Dawn stamped repeating anchors to frame the sentiment from HAPPY HARBOR

It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY here on the Reverse Confetti blog.  HAPPY HARBOR has been on my desk and I can’t seem to put it away!  Here, I used it in combination with a (Silhouette) die cut tag, where I used the negative of an off-set anchor…

HappyHarborTFCT

I stamped the whale image multiple times to create my own patterned paper and then added the sentiment as an embellishment to the tag (along with some sequins for bling!) …

HappyHarborTFCT_detail

I love this color combination, especially for the nautical theme!  It gives it a little bit of a hip and girly feel to it.

This week’s ‘FETTI FINDS are…

It’s baaaaack!

SFYTT_postgraphic

Yep, SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY (SFYTT) is back…but a little different, in a good way, of course!  Same awesome sketches, just a slightly different format.

For starters, it’s here on the Reverse Confetti blog, not at my “old” blog (iheart2stamp.com).

Second, Reverse Confetti is hosting and sponsoring the sketch.  And, because we’re the sponsor we get to give away REVERSE CONFETTI stamps!!  More on that in a minute, along with all the other details you will want to know.

For now, let’s get this party started!  Here’s the very first SFYTT here at Reverse Confetti…

RC_SFYTT1

Here’s my sample using stamps from both HAPPY HARBOR and I LIKE YOU

SFYTT1-1

I created my own pattern paper focal panel by repeatedly stamping the anchor from HAPPY HARBOR and the hearts from I LIKE YOU.  Detail shots…

TGIF blogland and ‘Fetti Fans!  It’s time once again for the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has done this week.
