NO hot pink! December Release

Well, Creative Escape Papercrafting asked in the Facebook Group and individually & you answered! Isn’t it nice when a company caters to customers? I’m excited to share a the reveal with you tonight & a few extras. This kit is vintage & soft without being too feminine to make cards for just about anyone! The stamp sentiments offer more flexibility, covering topics such as: kindness, laughter, compassion friendship, best friends, etc. My favorite is “I’ll always be there for you”. 🙂 Ephemera offers love, handmade by, thinking of you & friendship. It’s a luxury to be able to make a card for males and females without racking my brain; although with so many sheets of stunning paper, it may be hard to decide on 1 or 2! If you’re interested in Valentine’s Day items, such as heart dies or stamps from Lawn Fawn, there are add-ons available. Ready for the videos?!?

Add-ons or “refreshers” as I call them, if you wish to update your stash:

STAY CRAFTY, MY FRIENDS!

THE Ronald McDonald House

I am writing you this straight from my transplanted heart…. The Ronald McDonald House is a special place for kids that have to go to doctor’s appointment’s often that don’t live close to the hospital. Many, in fact, almost all of my friends from the Children’s Hospital needed to use The Ronald McDonald House for tests, extended hospital stays, surgeries, etc. So, when my friend, Sam Finlay, on Facebook, whom resides in the U.K. announced she was doing a fund raiser/raffle for The Ronald McDonald House, I was happy to try to help! So, the owner of Creative Escape Papercrafting said it was fine to donate some card kits, like the “Fully Loaded”, silvers foil & gloss finishes on many papers & 18 sheets of paper (TRYING to tempt you to grab a raffle ticket or two, I confess!) Nuvo drops, Lawn Fawn Chunky glitter, Studio Katia bling goodies, and you may wanna just check out the video?!?! But there are all kinds of goodies & donations accepted if you live on the OTHER side of the pond, like me, being in the Mid-West. You can add Sam Finlay on Facebook from Blanford Forum. Thanks everyone & stay crafty, my friends while helping others! 🙂

10 Minute Card Series

With Fall/Autumn:) as my UK friends say, heads into full swing, the calendar gets busy! SO I thought, some fast cards would be nice create! Sometimes, we just DON’T have as much time as we’d like to create cards. So, I’m doing a series on quick cards with hope that you’ll refer back to a few things… Go for some tried & true things like banners & utilize fun, double-sided paper to get to see that nice detail as you open the card. If possible, think of a color or activity the recipient enjoys and you can hit the ground running! Yes, this card was for a young male but I find it more difficult to make cards for the guys! So, to give to an adult, I’d simply change the card starter interior card, add a couple more stars or baker’s twine and you could also do positive/negative die cutting on the banners with the stars or “Happy Birthday” for a twist. More Quick Cards are coming, I promise! AFTER HALLOWEEN: CHRISTMAS card series begins! YES! 🙂

Christmas Extras
