Countdown to Confetti: Carton Cuties and Class Act

Well, I hope y'all have been following along this week with the sneak peeks for the new REVERSE CONFETTI release available tomorrow!  If you haven't, you're missing out and will want to check out the RC blog HERE to go back and visit them. 

Today, we are revealing the last two sets, CARTON CUTIES and CLASS ACT.

CARTON CUTIES is a brilliant spring set that is also perfect for Easter cards.  There is also a matching CARTON CUTIES DIE SET that I used for the egg carton and chick.  The dies line up perfectly with the stamp set, so that once stamped, a perfect image can be cut every time!  I also just had to share this about my Easter card--Audrie made the pastel background at school!  She took a little Gelli Plate printing class from her art teacher, and gave her creation to me to use on a card!  SUPER cool and so sparkly in real life!

The next set, CLASS ACT is one that I know will be near and dear to my heart, especially given my new "profession"--substitute teaching!  Side note--I had a kindergartner yesterday that came within about a second of cutting her hair with her scissors!  YIKES!  I ran across the room, made an excellent save and took them away just in time! 

This stamp set also has a matching set of CLASS ACT DIES.  My little pencil set gifties have a cute "clipboard" that I put together fairly quickly using all the dies (see below), but there are several other ways to use them all.  The tab at the top accomodates the sentiments from the stamp set, but I turned it upside down, punched a hole in it, and it became the "clip" for my clipboard. 

Just so y'all know...everything will be available on the 8th--that's tomorrow!  We'll wrap up with a blog hop that day as well.  YAY!  Meanwhile, don't forget that Jen has a link list going daily (Mar. 5-7) for all the sneak peeks over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.

SUSIE Q-TIP:  If you have a child in school, consider incorporating some of their artwork (if they don't mind) into your cards or projects.  Audrie was so excited that I wanted to use this and now cannot wait to give this card to her art teacher.
