I wanted to take a few minutes to quickly go over some questions about me, Creative Escape Papercrafting & why I took a step back. VERY simply put, there was a major illness that hit our family – hard. I still did some videos & it was an honor to do so! Creative Escape Papercrafting was a different option with more flexibility, so after deliberating, I took the chance in order have more time with family. It’s been really fun & a great opportunity! However, I took some time off from crafting to properly grieve at the beginning of the year. Although, I continued to give opinions/info about items that may or may not go into kits for Creative Escape Papercrafting which is really fun. I also continued to post unboxing videos on this blog & YouTube & did some announcements & cards. I really enjoy “meeting” new people on various social media platforms from all over the world, especially when paper crafting’s involved! (Btw, Creative Escape Papercrafting has a Facebook Group which is positive and anyone can join. I’d recommend it because everyone’s nice & positive! ) ALL I CAN SAY IS fun things & good times are ahead! OH! 10 card video will be done in a bit! 🙂 Hey, I can’t give away all of my secrets & projects! LOL I’ve been working on a couple series… Absolutely – the “Fully Loaded Kit” has Altenew stamps, 3 dies, beautiful papers, etc. Stay crafty, my friends!
This is a fun card to make! If you have a stamping tool, it’s e bit easier to do. However, I often do use a stamp block on & off camera (Have to edit some things out!) & it worked just fine….. It is time to begin to think of embossing powder as a tool or coloring medium, because there is mush to explore with it. So, this is a single layer piece of paper & 4×6 stamp set from ALTENEW from the February release from Creative Escape Papercrafting! (The Fully loaded Kit ships every other month kit to make it as affordable as possible.) When I hear “Altenew”, I get pretty excited because of their vast & unique designs & fantastic quality. If it hadn’t come in the kit, I’d have this stamp set on my birthday or Christmas list because of the gorgeous curved, large floral cluster and many great sentiments included on the stamp set. OK onto dimension, a love of mine!:)
One of my crafty friends told me she was having some issues creating nice yet simple one layer cards… I asked her if that was a hint for videos and she said yes! Well, this is my first single layer card, featuring the gorgeous ALTENEW 4×6″ stamp set that can be used for just about any occasion with about a 4 inch floral spray focal stamp. It also has sentiments for friendship, love, thank you, Mum & Mom – for our friends across the pond that celebrate their Mums/Moms in March! (Sentiment stamp sets are expensive and rarely in a kit, so I’m pretty excited about this particular kit and the fact that I got an Altenew stamp treat! 🙂 So, this is a great set to practice making cards that are a bit easier to create because creating should be fun! Right? I love my layers and details but it isn’t always necessary when you have a stamp set like this. So, I went for details & have made a couple of single layer cards thus far… The first is the easiest and I’d feel comfortable sending it to anyone. Great for when you’re in a time crunch, too:
SO SORRY for the delay for uploading this, our internet went down in the area after the morning launch! So, onward & upward! There are a lot of stash supplies, 12 double sided papers with focal prints included, fun accessories, 3 dies & a stunning 4×6 floral stamp set from ALTENEW in this kit! That is a big deal for a new/small company to offer customers! I hope this shows the commitment Creative Escape Papercrafting has to offer quality, variety & some indulgence! Many people have told me they can’t always afford beautiful products from companies like Altenew, due to budget &/or location. ENJOY & have a blast stamping, layering & creating! Creative Escape Papercrafting is unique as the Fully Loaded Kit is released every other month with the intent of offering an affordable paper crafting kit (or individual purchase option). More exciting things are on the way and it’s an honor to be able to share some of the possibilities utilizing this kit! A video sharing examples will be up shortly because it’s time to play with this amazing floral spray with fab sentiments from Altenew! All of the goodies in this kit are shown in the video below. Stay crafty, my friends!

Well, it is that time of year! It is better than receive, especially THIS time of year! THANK YOU LAWN FAWN for providing examples for Creative Escape Papercrafting to utilize as my rib injury heals, this was incredibly helpful & really sweet! So, this is the unboxing, which I think are somewhat underrated. In my humble opinion, it’s helpful to get a feel for the kit. (Old sweet shop vibe is soo fun & useful for a lot of things!) GIVEAWAY DETAILS: This is one giveaway that will take place over the next couple of months, so stay tuned & check back often!

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!
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! 🙂
