Reverse Confetti Spring Fling Blog Hop


Well, y'all know that saying, "April showers bring May flowers"?  If it's true, my whole yard, front and back, should be FULL of bouquets in about a week!  THE RAIN we have gotten, OMG!  I think every soccer practice and game we've had on the schedule has been rained out the last two weeks. I'm talking Audrie's team and the two teams that Lindsie is on!  It's getting a little ridiculous.  May is going to be a very busy month, trying to squeeze in all those rained out games, and we won't even go into what all else we've got going on!  Such is spring in Texas...

Anyway, some of the Confetti Crew at REVERSE CONFETTI thought it would be a fun idea to put together a little "Spring Fling" blog hop.  So if you're feeling a little "rained out", sit back and enjoy the sunshine we are sharing to brighten your day and give y'all a little fresh inspiration.  The hop started over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog, and you should have made it all the way through, arriving here from LISA'S blog.


Along with spring comes the close of another school year, so I thought it would be nice to make some sweet little folded "thank you" tags for Audrie's teachers.  I'll probably attach them to a Sonic gift card for each of them. 


I used the FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts die as the base and inside of my "notes" and simply folded it over a couple of pencils.  I then decorated the tags using the CLASS ACT stamp set for the apple and then sentiments.  The apple was easily cut using the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die and there's that little flag banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.  I've probably used it 785,093,281 times since I've had it.  I love that thing.


Ok, I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us again on MAY 8th for our next  REVERSE CONFETTI  new release--stay tuned for a "Win it Before You Can Buy It" promo going on  on FB and IG! But for now, you've reached the end of the hop!  If you got lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers over on the Reverse Confetti blog.

  If you didn't already, be sure to leave a little note of love 
on each designer's blog for a chance at winning 
a $15 RC Gift Certificate!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  When making these notes, be sure to stamp the inside sentiment on the little rectangle before you glue it to the inside.  I almost dropped the INKED up stamp 3 times as I was stamping them.  It would have been an easy fix, but not always!  

Stamps:  Class Act (Reverse Confetti)
Paper:  White (PTI), Old Olive (SU!), Yellow (Pebbles), The Sweetest Thing (MME)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Wild Cherry (MFT)
Accessories:  Folded Tag, Class Act, Tag Me Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Ribbon (PTI), Cherry Divine Twine (TCP), Button, Foam Boosters, Pencils
