Reverse Confetti August Blog Hop

Well, it's the eighth of the month, 
which means it's time for the Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog
and you should have made it here from the amazing Amy Sheffer's blog
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 Reverse Confetti's fabulous products! 

Now, the Reverse Confetti DT was challenged to create an "ABC" Summer project,
where "ABC" stands for "Anything But a Card."

Last summer, I started a summer pocket album
and finally finished it this June -- hey, no judging! ;)

Here is a spread I made of part of our trip to Minneapolis last August:

The Right Here, Right Now stamp set was perfect for creating the journaling cards,
which I diecut using the journaling card die from Documented Confetti Cuts.

On each panel, I used some Basic Grey patterned paper.

On my first card, I diecut the geotag die from Documented Confetti Cuts
from the Basic Grey patterned paper and then stamped the sentiment from 
Here's the Story twice -- once on the patterned paper and once on the journaling card.
Then, I adhered it in place.
I stamped the journaling lines from Right Here, Right Now in yellow.

On this panel, once again, I stamped the sentiment from Here's the Story
and the journaling lines from Right Here, Right Now.

I created this diecut by diecutting the shape from Documented Confetti Cuts,
but not cutting the end. 
Instead, I moved the diecut over to make it longer.

And, using the same stamp sets as before, I made this journaling card.

I also have a card to share today -- a fun summery card that
uses some Crate Paper Poolside patterned paper.

I used a strip of the patterned paper and layered it over some aqua mist cardstock.
I stamped the two sentiments (from Let's Chill & Lots to Say).

To create the snowcone, I was inspired by the little snowcones on the patterned paper
and wanted to replicate one of them on a larger scale.
So, I diecut the cone from Love & Ice Cream Confetti Cuts
and stamped it with the popsicle stripe from Let's Chill, the pineapple top
from Pineapples Aplenty & a sentiment from Love and Ice Cream.
A few enamel dots finish it off.
