Reverse Confetti August Creative Hop!

Today is the eighth of the month which means a Reverse Confetti August Creative Hop...not just any blog hop but a SUMMER FUN Blog Hop!  We are sharing ABC Projects (Anything but a Card)! 

Make sure you comment along the way for a chance to win a $15 Gift Certificate to the Reverse Confetti Store!  Commenting will be open until Monday at noon CST and the winner will be announced on Tuesday, August 11th on the Reverse Confetti Blog!

You should have arrived here from our newest teamie, the most fabulous Amy Rohl!!!!!!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Reverse Confetti Blog!

First up is an altered clipboard:

cardstock:  papertrey ink vellum, stampin' up pink pirouette/coastal cabana  stamps:  reverse confetti/color me happy  ink:  zing black embossing powder  other:  reverse confetti petals 'n posies confetti cuts, italian wool, mme enamel dots, t$spot clipboard


I ♡ the Target Dollar Spot!  I picked up that clipboard and a package of 3 mechanical pencils there.  I love the contrast of the bold sentiment from Color me Happy teamed up with Petals 'n Posies blooms (wool felt/cardstock).   I can easily change out the sentiment panel for whatever mood suits me!

Next up is a perfect Summer Time project:

Cold Brew

cardstock:  recollections white, misc kraft, stampin' up gumball green  stamps:  reverse confetti be a barista/so stripey/lable me  ink:  fresh ink mojita, ranger archival black  other:  reverse confetti tagged tote/tassel & label me confetti cuts, computer generated COLD BREW, misc tissue, stampin' up  gumball green sweater trim, divine twine solid black, mason jar, starbucks coffee

Let me start by saying the the words, COLD BREW, were computer generated.  Doesn't the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts make an awesome label?!  I slightly modified the bottom on the kraft base.  The white panel has been stamped with a sentiment from Be a Barista and I used the So Stripey for the bottom.  I've been hoarding some Tim Holtz tissue that I ran through using the Tassel Confetti Cut.  You can't really tell, but I spritzed it with Fireworks/Bamboo Leaves.  


I made a lid cozy and stamped it with a sentiment from Label Me and used the coordinating Confetti Cut.


There are so many Cold Brew recipes out there.  This is perfect gift for a coffee loving friend, and yes, I have many of those (wink).  

That's it for me!  Next on the hop is the FABulous Amy Sheffer!  If you get lost along the way, the main hop list is on the Reverse Confetti blog!
