Essentials By Ellen December Mini Hop–Day 3–Confetti Flinger!

Hello friends!!


Welcome to my blog!!  If you’ve arrived here from Laurel Beard's blog, you’re in the right place!  If not, you may have gotten lost along the way – I’ve listed all of the stops in today’s hop below (it starts at the Ellen Hutson ClassROOM Blog) – trust me, you’re going to want to start at the beginning!!

I’m sooo excited to be here to share a project that I created with the UBER innovative and super fun new die from the Essentials By Ellen December Release!!  That Julie Ebersole has done it again, friends!!  She’s come up with a die to help you engineer and add an amazing interactive idea into your projects!!  The Confetti Finger Die is one of THE MOST brilliant ideas I have ever come across in papercrafting, and I’m super excited to share a project that I created with it! This is the front of the card:


And this is what it looks like when you open it up!


I don’t know what stage of life you all are in, but in my life – gender reveals are happening all around me!  My youngest daughter and her hubby are expecting baby #2, and we’re about to find out what they’re having any day now!  [EDITED TO ADD:  I must have had a premonition when I created this card back in November, as Baby #2 is, in fact, A BOY!!  WOOHOO!!]  They live in Portland, so not everyone can be present when they reveal the gender of their baby!  So I thought it’d be so fun to create a gender reveal card – and the Confetti Flinger provides the perfect mechanism for that!  When you open up the card, baby-themed confetti comes flying out of that little glassine pocket!! BRILLIANT, right?! I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below!  AND, the genius behind the Confetti Flinger (Julie Ebersole) has done a little video demonstrating the assembly of this amazing mechanism so that you can see just how stinkin’ easy and innovative it really is!  You can find the video HERE!  I have a million ideas as to how to use this baby, so you can be sure that you’ll be seeing it here on my blog often!
