Well, I've been wanting to make another set of Project Life type cards for a while. So I came up with a fun color scheme with some vibrant and yummy pops of color, some of my favorite REVERSE CONFETTI
stamps and Confetti Cuts Dies and off I went!
I made a set of six at first, but couldn't stop, so I made 2 more. That's good because the pocket pages I used for them hold 8 of the vertical style for this size. The base is made using the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts
dies, as are some of the bits and pieces I used to decorate them (sets listed below).
The stamping was all done using a combination of two sets--POSTED NOTE SENTIMENTS
and HERE'S THE STORY,
both of which mixed well together and are perfect for this type of project.
I loved the card set so much, that I am turning into a workshop up at THE LITTLE BLUE HOUSE
in Keller. We'll be making these exact cards, yes all 8! Two page protectors are included in the class, and we will complete both of them, front a back for a total of four pages. There may even be a little BONUS
project we will include in the class, but that will be my little secret. I'd love for it to become a series of classes with "themed" PL cards--Halloween, Christmas, Birthday, etc. What do y'all think? Here's the details for my class--call or stop by to reserve your spot, it's going to be a ton of FUN!

Well, happy Wednesday! Today REVERSE CONFETTI is sponsoring the newest sketch over at FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES (#200). A bunch of the Confetti Crew girls are participating as well and sharing their creations using the new sketch. Take a look at it:
This sketch definitely took me out of my comfort zone as y'all know I am a member of the "more is more" club with lots of layers and embellishments on my cards and projects.
With only the two panels, I thought it would be fun to at least dress them up with a cut bumblebee from THE BUZZ stamp set from REVERSE CONFETTI. I brushed the dust off my Copics and colored him (I've still got it, he turned out pretty darn good!), and then die cut him using the coordinating THE BUZZ Confetti Cuts. I also stamped the sentiment and little "beeline" from the same stamp set. The scallop border between the two panels (I just couldn't leave it plain) is from the smaller edge of the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts. I just had to add a few sequins for a little more sparkle and it was complete!
We hope y'all get a chance to play along with this super EASY sketch! Head on over the REVERSE CONFETTI BLOG for a link list of all the Confetti Crew's creations. Then check out more info and link your project over on the FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES BLOG.
You could WIN some Reverse Confetti of your very own!
SUSIE Q-TIP: I've said this before, but sometimes I cheat. Yes, after stamping an image that may have a large solid black area, I use a black Copic, or fine-liner pen to "fill in" or retouch to give it more even coverage where the stamp may not have inked so solidly.
PSSST.....You have one more day to comment to win a

Well, summer vacation is almost over
. Who's made it through the season without a summer cold? ME
!! I rarely get sick, but when I do, I pull out all the stops and just go for it. Knock on wood, our whole family has managed to steer clear of any bugs going around. However, I have lots of friends whose kids have been sick, or been sick themselves and that's just no fun during summer vacay. So my sample for August's SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY
from REVERSE CONFETTI
is a little something to try and cheer up those bitten by the "bugs".
Here's a look at the sketch. I went with a "giftie" rather than a regular card because I wanted to show y'all how a card sketch can still work with an "ABC" project.
I used the TAGGED TOTE
as my base, and the rounded tag included features the two large background pieces in the sketch. I then used the POSTED Confetti Cuts
to create the cute little clip-up stand, and decorated it with the clouds and rainbow from the WEATHER IT TOGETHER Confetti Cuts
and the flag banner from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts
has the cute stamped sentiment from the WEATHER IT TOGETHER
stamp set. I loved the look of the rainbow sort of separated, so I simply glued the ends to the clouds to get this look. Here's hoping I don't have to fill this with cough drops and Kleenex for anyone soon!
Head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog
to see what the other gals have created for today! There just might be some other GIVEAWAYS, too!
Ok, GIVEAWAY TIME for me!!!

Well, today is my bestie, JEN DEL MURO'S birthday,
and as her gift to YOU
, for the next 3 days, she is having the BIGGEST REVERSE CONFETTI SALE
of the year!!
Each day, a few of the Confetti Crew girls will be sharing cards and projects made with some of our favorite REVERSE CONFETTI
products in celebration of not only the sale, but Jen's birthday, too! So be sure and check out the RC BLOG today, Friday and Saturday
for links to the Confetti Crew's "must see" inspiration!
As I was taking my daughter to soccer practice the other night, I passed a Krispy Kreme Donuts (and didn't even stop), and immediately knew what direction I wanted this card to take. I used the latest sketch rs#176
, from the RETRO SKETCHES blog
--it's super fun! I love their card sketches because they have lots of elements!
I started by making all my bits and pieces from the DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts
and the LOVE AND ICE CREAM stamps and Confetti Cuts.
The sentiment was perfect for the yummy food pairing and who wouldn't love a little bit of ice cream and donuts for their birthday!?! Happy Birthday, Jen. We're forever friends through thick and thin. I love you, bestie!!!
: In case y'all missed my IG/Facebook/Twitter post, I tried to sharpen a mechanical pencil today in an electric sharpener. It didn't work. Don't ask me how I know this. I don't want to talk about it. And also in case y'all didn't, why aren't you following me? Look for me: susiestampalot (Instagram, Pinterest), @susiestampalot (Twitter), Susan Liles (Facebook)
