Creative Escape 2018

Hello friends!

I am excited to tell you more about this years Creative Escape!  Can’t believe it is less than 3 months away!  Again is year, I will offer your choice of All Occasion and Christmas cards along with a 20 page scrapbook.

Date for Creative Escape 2018 is September 28 – 29.

Place is same as last year, First Baptist Church, Union Road, Gastonia NC

I have changed my mind again to at least include 2-3 bundles for the All Occasion cards ( too many I like!). They include Abstract Impressions, Rooted in Nature, and Serene Garden.

I will make a decision on the scrapbook when I see the Holiday catalog later this month… this time I am leaning toward a Christmas theme or birthday/awesome you theme.

The cost of Creative Escape this year is $175.   Please down load and return email or snail mail your confirmation sheet with a $50 deposit.  Balance of payment is due by August 31st with NO refunds after August 31st.   A bundle of product to purchase is also required.  You will share this product bundle with table mates during Creative Escape and then take home with you.  The cost of the product bundle will vary.  I will have a list for you to choose from by the end of August.

Who loves to scrapbook?  Come join us and make two 2-page spreads each month!  Here’s what we created July and one from June….. I’m loving Stampin’ Up’s new Designer Series Paper!



I love the sentiments that come with stamp set, Little Twinkle!  Stamp set is bundled with a punch for the moon and stars.  #148414  and coordinates with Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper  #146284

We made a frame by punching 1″ squares with square punch and adhering to outer edge of card stock.  By running it through the Big Shot with Subtle Embossing Folder #143706, it meshes together and looks more like a baby quilt.



These pictures just don’t do justice to this absolutely beautiful Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Speciality Paper #146907

Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper comes with 4 sheets like the one used on my scrapbook page that measure 12 x 12.  You can use it this size or snip between the flowers to use individually or on a smaller card.

Play with the possibilities for this beautiful paper….

  • spritz color on paper by adding reinker to rubbing alcohol in a Stampin’ Spritzer
  • sponge with dauber and ink pad
  • place card stock under the laser cut paper while adding color to use a beautiful negative of the laser paper

Package also comes 4 sheets that contain laser cut borders and card fronts

TIP for adhering laser cuts:  carefully place front side down and cut a wedge from Stampin’ Sponges.  With the wedge of sponge, daube in a little Tombo adhesive and then on to the back of your laser cut.  Just hit the most solid parts….a little Tombo really holds!


Love this DSP!  Animal Expedition DSP #146902 It is so FUN!  The Leaf Ribbon, #146905 adds so much dimension and texture but it also adds a bit of whimsy too!  I used the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder #143704 to continue with the whimsy vining from the Leaf Ribbon.

Yes, the upside down “Wild About You” was purposeful…….just added to my whimsy with this page.  Just having fun!
