WEEK IN REVERSE

Hello and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

What an awesome week it has been here!  What’s happening here, you ask?  There’s the daily routine of shipping orders, checking emails and other little tasks that are all part of being a business.  I’m fortunate to do this from home with a couple of doggies at my feet most days.  We’ve been researching and looking at office space, but it looks like we are staying based at home for now.  I am grateful for the opportunity to work from home, to be available to my kids and to make my own hours (and there are lots and lots of odd hours in there!). I am grateful that I took this leap a few years ago and I get to share my creative passion with  you.  I am so very grateful for YOU, for your support and for you sharing your creativity with me.  Needless to say, I am grateful for A LOT and I am also VERY excited!  There is a lot happening behind the scenes here that I can’t reveal quite yet.  But those long, odd hours are being put to good use to bring new products and exciting events (both online and in person) to you!  Today, I have shelves being built in the Reverse Confetti office and soon those shelves will be packed with new goodies!  Stay tuned! XO-Jen

Now, let’s take a peek at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week!

CONFETTI CAMERA

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Time for another great CONFETTI CAMERA today!

ConfettiCameraRCblog

In this weekly 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, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from cards completed inside and out from each of our designers. 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.

Today on Confetti Camera is the so very talented and sweet, AMY KOLLING

. . . . .

Hello Fetti’ Friends!  Amy Kolling here bringing you this week’s Confetti Camera which is all about “inside and out”.  I’ve used one of my favorite dies……the TRIPLE CHEVIES Confetti Cuts die to make a love masculine card.  This die is perfect to add that graphic feel for a guy card.  I’ve used the die to cut out 3 colors of cardstock including gold.  I’ve lined these up on the front of a panel of clear cardstock to make it something different!  I simply scored a piece of clear cardstock at 5.5″, folded, and trimmed off the extra.  This “fold” is what I sandwiched between 2 pieces of white cardstock to make things look polished.  My sentiment (from LOTS TO SAY) was stamped on a white Chevie die cut in black ink and was added to the front with foam adhesive.  I added one little red heart (from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set)…..

Confetti Camera Outside

For my inside, I carried over the same colors and used another sentiment from LOTS TO SAY along with a row of diecut hearts from LOVE NOTE.  Since the front of my card is clear except for the Chevies die cuts, I spaced my sentiment where it wouldn’t show until you open the card.  To finish off the inside, I didn’t want the adhesive from the front panel Chevies to show when you opened the card so I cut several white Chevies and layered them on the back of the front panel.

Confetti Camera Inside

I must admit…  I don’t ever finish the insides of my cards.  But thinking one step further and giving the inside just a bit of attention really makes for a full finished card.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

Welcome to this week’s edition of WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS?

It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between.  Today, Confetti Crew member Sarah Gough has a great video to share with you about how to make a darling gift wrap card.

. . . . .

SarahIntroPic

For Wednesday in the Works today, I turned to that little workhorse of a die set, the Office Edges Confetti Cuts! I’ve used a tab from the Office Edges to create a little pocket, turning your card into the perfect giftwrap for a little piece of jewelry, giftcard or cash. My card features a magnetic closure, but you can also use ribbon and I’ll show you both options.

WEEK IN REVERSE

Hello and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

I am definitely looking forward to this weekend!  The weather is supposed to be beautiful and I am excited to spend some quality time outside with the littles and my hubby.  I think I’ve convinced them to help me wash/clean out my car.  We’ll see if they are anywhere to be found when it comes time for that, though!

It’s a super special weekend at Reverse Confetti, too!  Sunday is our (monthly) blog hop and I promise you do not want to miss it!
