Today is the day! It is the Reverse Confetti September Release Blog Hop! That means all the new products that we’ve been sneak peekin’ to you are now available in the shop!
Hasn’t this been, yet another fabulous release?!
I have several projects to share today, so grab a cuppa joe and read away!
My first project is an altered burlap bag.
cardstock: recollections/110/white paper: studio calico brighton pier stamps: reverse confetti caffeinated cups + for the love of latte ink: ranger archival black, fresh ink cocoa + charcoal, copic marker other: reverse confetti love note, class act + caffeinated cups confetti cuts, may arts ribbon, stampin’ up burlap bag
The striped bag is the perfect size for a, yes, starbucks card! Truthfully, I also popped our metro cards that still have $$ on them and it has all been sent over to the boy.
I used the Studio Calico Brighton Pier collection with the Love Note + Class Act Confetti Cuts. Isn’t that mug from Caffeinated Cups adorable?! Such a fun pattern! It’s been stamped in Fresh Ink Charcoal and then I followed up with Copic YR09 and dotted the centers!
Next up is an altered vintage sugar shaker:
cardstock: stampin’ up chocolate chip, papertrey ink kraft, recollections/110/white, recollections gold glitter paper: glitz dapper dan stamps: reverse confetti caffeinated cups + for the love of latte ink: ranger archival black, fresh ink cocoa + charcoal other: reverse confetti tags tag, caffeinated cups confetti cups, upcycled coffee sleeve, t $ spot twine
So, I love to collect things, not a great combo when you’re a paper crafter because let’s face it, with our hobby comes a ton of stuff. A while ago I started to collect glass sugar shakers…they’re perfect for twine or as a gift vessel. This one is filled with Werthers Caramel Coffee Candy.
I had a ton of fun putting together the tag. The base is the new Thanks Tag Confetti Cut.
The Caffeinated Cups set is so much fun! I paper pieced the cup. The sleeve is an upcycled Panera Coffee Sleeve. Their sleeves are dimpled so it adds a bunch of texture that isn’t visible in my photography. I stamped the floral pattern in charcoal gray. The sentiment is from the For the Love of Latte set!
One more for today! I’m trying to do a project life spread each month that we have releases! All the photos are from my recent (august) trip to NYC. If you didn’t know, my son started his first year of college there. It’s definitely a bittersweet occasion….my baby is living across the US from me.
paper: recollections/110/white stamps: reverse confetti for the love of latte + pumpkin patch + walk by faith ink: ranger archival black, stampin’ up white embossing, fresh ink charcoal, clear embossing powder other: reverse confetti pumpkin patch confetti cuts, wood veneer , cork, twine
Although the overall layout is pretty simple, I was able to use many of the products from this month’s awesome release. Let’s start from the upper left and work clockwise:
For The Love of Latte: We went to a great little coffee shop named Seven Grams. The sentiment is from the new For The Love of Latte set.
believe: I admit it, I’m a worrier….I thought it was sad when my girl moved 30 miles away but to have my boy 2,500 miles away…oy. So I have to believe that the kids will make the right decisions…I fashioned a tag that is behind the photo. It has a smidge of journaling in my handwriting. The sentiment is from the Walk By Faith set.
The photo of the three of us was taken the first night in NY in Washington Square Park. That’s truly what I am:
Grateful ● Thankful ● Blessed
I love the Pumpkin Patch set! I stamped that particular one in charcoal pigment ink and followed it up with clear embossing powder. To add more texture I used wood veneer for the stem.
I’m learning to embrace the empty nest hood (officially on 9/13)…I love my kids more than they could ever know. I’m thankful that they both have the opportunity and desire to further their education.
Thanks so much for stoppin’ by and for all of your sweet comments!
