Reverse Confetti {October Blog Hop}

Hello October (cooler weather—yay!) and Hello REVERSE CONFETTI Fans! It’s the 8th of the month –Blog Hop time!


 Are ya’ll ready to savor some sweet inspiration? Take some time to enjoy this month’s creative Blog Hop from Reverse Confetti. Last month’s release was all about fall and spooks and today we are inspiring you with projects and cards using those stamps and any other previously released stamps from Reverse Confetti. Along with the Confetti Crew (our fabulous design team), we’ve also invited some extra friends to join in on the action!



The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Taheerah Atchia’s blog (she's been a Fetti Fave!). It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all of Reverse Confetti’s amazing stamp sets! 

I was inspired by all the fall sets to do a little catching up with my Project Life album. I pulled these Instagram photos from last year and finally got them documented. I used A LOT of Reverse Confetti stamps. This is a photo heavy post. Grab a cuppa something good and enjoy. 

I am happy to say I only used cardstock, stamps, and ink on this double layout. I let all the fabulous stamps and my photos do the work here today. Ok, so there are a few dies I used (for the notebook edge, speech bubble, and a 1/4 circle punch), but THAT's it! No other embellies!

 Here is a close up shot of the left side of my layout. I'll share  some detailed shots of each of the pockets. Since I used 4x4 square instagram photos, I needed to mount each of my pics onto a 4x6 cardstock  base. That gave me the perfect opportunity to customize each insert. 

Here is a look at the titles I added. Stamps I used are Forever Fall, Lighthearted Alphabet, and some Arrows-n-elements. I like to stick to a core color scheme for my full layout. This helps tie it all together. Here I used orange, purple, kraft, black and white for both my inks and papers. 


 The middle pockets are all 3x4, so I cut my picures down to that size as well as my cardstock. I used these as some journaling spots. The orange one, was all stamped with Whole Lotta Dots in Sweet Tooth ink and then that beautiful quote and woodgrain heart from Forever Fall. 


The kraft pocket insert was created with the Count Your Rainbows stamp set. I made a custom list to journal, making the numbers co-inside with my photos. You can see that on my list, I stamped the round numbers in purple ink and then stamped them again in black ink, and then punched them out attaching them to my photos. I am so happy I kept my teeny little 1/4 inch  circle punch. It was a perfect fit for these numbers. 


I needed a little something for this pocket, so I added some orange and purple arrows (Arrows -n- elements)  along the edge of my photo. Love those polka dots!

Here is a close up of the right side of my layout. 


You'll see a lot of the same elements on this side of my layout. I love using Lighthearted Alphabet to make my own titles. A few arrows and hearts (I Like You) complete the picture of our sweet puppy. He was 15 weeks old, here. 



I snapped this fun picture of two of my boys with their best buds. I used more Lighthearted Alphabet, Whole Lotta Dots and added a few little acorns from Forever fall. I need a little something extra on the left side of this pocket, so I stamped that frame from Arrows-n-Elements.


I love this quote from Count Your Rainbows. The polka dots (from Whole Lotta Dots)  in white ink on the kraft ink make my heart happy. 


I used some of my favorite images from from Forever Fall, along with the Halloween sentiment from Spooky Sentiments to make a stamped topper for my journal insert. I added a few white stamped hearts from Arrows -n- Elements


I stamped another fun quote from Spooky Sentiments and added a few custom Jack 'o lanterns with the pumpkins from Spooky Cuties and Forever Fall


My boys had fun making a spooky house out of ginger bread and decorated it with lots of candy. The creepy, rickety fence and bats from Spooky Cuties were the perfect accents to show off this photo.
