Happy Fall-idays! Christmas!

Happy Fall-idays! Today the Confetti Crew are sharing Christmas creations! This is definitely my favourite crafting holiday - as least until Valentine's Day rolls around!

Today I have a sweet little giftie or stocking stuffer. I think almost every crafty chick I know is fuelled by coffee, so if you're a caffeine addict you'll like this one for sure!

I've put coffee capsules in cello bags - this is my fave Nespresso, Livato - but anything would work of course, maybe some hot chocolate or tea cups for non coffee lovers. 

I've created the base of the bag topper with the Documented Confetti Cuts, it was the perfect width. I scored and adhered it down with red line tape before decorating.

I've used the fabulous Caffeinated Cups - pairing it with a matching coffe image from Be a Barista and of course the wonderful Caffeinated Cups Confetti Cuts

I know coffee brings ME joy - so I've used the Winter Words Confetti Cuts to bring some to the bag toppers.

To finish off this festive trio, I used the Holly Confetti Cuts

Happy Fall-idays! Thanksgiving

Hello! Welcome to the Thanksgiving portion of the awesome Reverse Confetti Happy Fall-idays event!

Now, Thanksgiving isn't a "thing" here in New Zealand - but being thankful is a universal concept! And so is gift giving! I've created a little gift box perfect to say thank you to someone special, perhaps a teacher?

I've used the fab Treat Tote Confetti Cuts. I cut the top edge off the box and roughed and inked it up for a slightly distressed look. It hold these two oversized test tubes perfectly. I pushed in the edges a little for a bit more detail.

I've decorated with the Leafy Confetti Cuts and the awesome Pumpkin Patch stamp set and coordinating Confetti Cuts

This box would also hold a little notepad and pen perfectly if you'd rather not gift an edible.

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to visit with the rest of the Confetti Crew for even more inspiration!

Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!

Yippee! The new Reverse Confetti release is available in store RIGHT NOW

The Confetti Crew are hopping today - you should have arrived here from Kay's Blog - if you need to start at the beginning of the hop, head on over to the Reverse Confetti blog.

My card today uses the new Jolly Holiday and Jolly Holiday Confetti Cuts. I went for a simpler, earthy look with this card. 

I coloured the cutie with copics and kept the layout simple using the Shakers 'n Frames Confetti Cuts and Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts

I curved the sentiment before stamping and finished with some jute ribbon and enamel dots.

It's time to go visit with Laurie now!
