Crazy for Christmas - Memory Keeping

It's the final day of our Reverse Confetti Crazy for Christmas event, and today the Confetti Crew are focusing on memory keeping.

You can find a full list of designers hopping today on the Reverse Confetti blog.

I wanted to make a little tag book to keep a record of our first Christmas in our new home. I can't wait to decorate for the season, and intend to fill this book with little instant photos of our tree, and other holiday goodies. 

I've used the wonderful new Gift Card Holder Tag Confetti Cuts as my album base. This is such a great big tag, it's perfect for a little album. I've left mats where I'll insert the mini photos in December and also left room for stamped captions.

I've decorated with lots of gorgeous Confetti Cuts. The Holly Confetti Cuts were a must! I've also used the Winter Words, Wreaths and Stitched Flag Trio. I stamped the year with the new Alphabetical stamp set.

I've also used the Let It Snow and Double Banner Garland Confetti Cuts.

This page is a little envelope I've used as a pocket to store notes in.

The back cover is blank for some journalling I'll do with a white gel pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Here are some more details about some of these fantastic products!

Crazy For Christmas - Gift Giving

Welcome to day two of the Reverse Confetti Crazy for Christmas event! 

You'll find a full list of the Confetti Crew hopping today on the Reverse Confetti blog. Today we're sharing  ideas for holiday gift giving! 

I wanted to create a sweet little box that could hold a chocolate truffle or two that would be perfect as a stocking stuffer, classroom gift or to hang on the tree! No stamping on this one, I let the Confetti Cuts shine! I've gone with one of my favorite alternate Christmas color combos - pink, aqua, white and gold. 

I used a gift bag punch board to create the box (if you have the same board, I started with a 4x10" piece of cardstock) I've been wanting to try using the new Hang Ups Confetti Cuts to close a box and I think it looks great! I've used the Holly Confetti Cuts and the older Let It Snow Confetti Cuts. I've also used the Winter Words cut from gold cardstock.

I think little boxes like this would make a wonderful advent calendar too! 

Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow with more Christmas inspiration!

November Diva Inspirations Hop!

It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings! You have until December 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

Our November challenge is Rustic Winter 
The days are turning cold and the splendor of fall is changing to the magesticly rustic beauty of a winter woodland. This month we're challenging you to bring a little bit of that rustic winter to your creations. Follow the graphic or head off on your own trail, just show us your rustic winter creations!

Click here to link up your challenge entries
Challenge deadline: Thursday, December 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

Well, of course I just had to use the phenomenal Unto Us and Pinecone Christmas stamp sets for my card today! When I saw the graphic I thought I'd make something layered and inked and distressed - but when I sat down to create, out came this simpler take. No paper, just stamping. Back to basics!

I've also used the Sweet Scallop Die and the coordinating Reindeer Fun Die set

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!

Reverse Confetti New Release Blog Hop!

woohoo! The new Reverse Confetti release is in store and available for purchase now

You can find all the new goodies right here. You should have made it here from Kay's blog, if you need to start at the beginning of the hop, you should jump on over to the Reverse Confetti blog

Every year it seems I forget at least one present and need a gift tag super fast. If you're like me, I have you covered! I've used the new Holly Jolly Quick Card Panels and Gift Card Holder Tag Confetti Cuts to create a couple of tags perfect for those last minute gifts you still want to have a handmade touch.

That gorgeous new Gift Card Holder Tag Confetti Cuts? Yup, the exact size to cut a fabulous tag from one of the amazing quick card panels with no waste! Love that! I've used the accent pieces to decorate the top of the tags and stamped the to/from in the With Love stamp set.

I finished my tag tops with the fun Hang Ups Confetti Cuts

I couldn't resist decorating a frosted pillow box to match. I used a quick card panel, cutting strips to wrap around the pillow box then finishing with a Hang Ups embellishment and Holly Confetti Cuts.

It's time to head over and visit with Laurie now - happy hopping and shopping!
