Fun 10 Cards, 1 Kit

Well, I have created one of my favorite 10 cards, 1 kit collections AND I have a ton of goodies leftover! Half of the journaling cards/card starters, a ton of stickers, some pieces of cardstock already cut for other cards & a lot of half sheets & partial 6×6 papers. Not to shabby for a kit that costs $25.99! This is the best collection of cards I think I’ve compiled using various products, techniques & tips/tricks I think I have done since coming back from Family Leave earlier this year. I tried to create different designs than other DT Members that are doing a fabulous job! So, I hope you enjoy this 10 Cards/1 Kit video using the Spring Market line by Carta Bella:


Amazing Value Cards

“Spring Market” by Carta Bella is the perfect name for this collection of 6×6 papers, journaling cards & stickers I had the pleasure of using! The Amazing Value Kit is a new kit from https://creativeescapepapercrafting.com/ & every kit is released every other month. I created 5 cards with ease & honestly think with some great paper & stamps, anyone can:


Hellloo everyone, hope you’re having a good weekend! I have a few fun announcements today, more in the week with new videos. Speaking of new, THERE’S A NEW, $25.99 kit per request from Creative Escape Papercrafting and it’s amazing! Subscribers will begin to receive a little gift with each kit they’re subscribed too! Fun to begin that during National Craft Month, right? It’s awesome to get a kit every other month for $25.99! Yes, shipping CAN be combined with other items, per request! Ok, let’s the show begin of stamps, dies, goodies, ink, etc.:


Staying Crafty

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!

3D Single Layer Card, Series 2

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!:)
