Concord and 9th Birthday Release!

This month, Concord & 9th is celebrating FOUR crafty years of business. And today, me and some other fabulous artists are going to celebrate by sharing projects we made with the brand new Confetti Cake Bundle.

You can earn the Cake Layer dies with a purchase of $60 or more, and the Confetti Turnabout with a purchase of $120 or more! I don’t know about y’all, but I could EASILY spend that much at Concord & 9th.

Today, my husband and I are driving home from Tennessee. I designed these cards and took the pictures for them early yesterday morning on the front porch of the cabin we rented in the mountains. So, needless to say, there may be grammar errors, ink smudges, random things that don’t make sense, and bugs that may have found their way into the lens of my camera. There may be some insect photobombs, just sayin’.

For my first project, I used the Cake Dies and the Confetti Turnabout to create this small 4″x4″ card. I was obviously thinking about my husband when I made this because I used all of his favorite colors 😉


I may have gone overboard with this next card. But why only have two layers of cake when you can have SIX rainbow layers??


I can’t even imagine all the work it would entail to make a six layer cake. When we were kids, my sister and I decided to make our parents a two layer anniversary cake. Long story short, my parents ended up with no cake that year. Unless you count a leaning pile of “cake” with melted hot frosting dripping everywhere and an ungodly amount of sprinkles – a cake.

We tried 🤷🏻‍♀️


Confetti and glitter used to give me happy thoughts associated with celebration and excitement. That was until last Saturday night when my newly wed husband and I climbed into my Subaru to drive away to our hotel for the night. Needless to say, his nine groomsmen really did a number on my poor little Impreza. To say my car was full of glitter would be an understatement. Turning on the air conditioning results in a face-full of glitter, so it goes without saying that I am a puddle of sweat right now.

I don’t think I’ll ever look at glitter the same way again.

Here are my last two cards:



And that is all for today my loves. Please give me a follow on my Instagram @hanlynart to see more from me and get to know me and my crazy little life a little better.

That’s my husband Jesse and I. 😘

Until next week,
