Amazing Layouts can be made using the Card Kits too

HI it's Bev here today. So I have been playing with the  Creative Escape Papercrafting February Fully Loaded Kit.... made specifically for cards.... but thought I'd share some ways to use these kits to also make some layouts. 
The first page is my eldest Grand Daughters and myself spending a day together.

The next page is photos from the McKee Botanical Gardens in Vero Beach, Florida.
Both these page started with the small card papers but they were reworked onto a 12x12 layout base  and used lots of paper accents, the stamp set and the dies from the card kit. 
Both turned out amazing and I love them.

Every mother loves getting a card and this kit gives you plenty of options to create the perfect one.  It is fully loaded with enough specialty paper, card stock, and embellishments to enable you to make 10+ cards.
The kit includes:
1 ALTENEW “Best Mom” stamp set
1 Kaisercraft “Birds & Butterflies” Decorative Die Set
12 Sheets of double-sided specialty paper from the Couture Creations “Hearts Ease” collection (each sheet is approx. 5.75” x 5.75”)
1 0.5 oz jar of Wow Turkish Nights embossing glitter
2 Craft Doilies
2 Sheets of 5” x 7” wafer board
2 Sheets of 8.5″ x 11″ white card stock
2 Sheets of 8.5” x 11” ivory card stock
1 Sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ wine card stock
1 Sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ light gray card stock
1 Sheet of 8.5″ x 5.5” vellum
1 Strip of 2” x 11” vellum
1 yard of wine ribbon
1 yard of ivory ribbon
1 yard of white hemp cord
1 yard of yellow hemp cord

One Layer Card Series Part 2

Designer Team Leader Jen continued her one layer card series by creating this beautiful card using more elements from the February Fully Loaded kit.  Using one of the Couture Creations 6x6 pattern papers as a background, she stamped the Altenew floral spray twice to create a dramatic focal point.  She used Lawn Fawn Gold embossing powder (not in the kit but available in the store) to build up the stamped image and add dimension to the card.  She used the Turkish Nights embossing powder included in the kit to build additional accents.  For a complete demonstration of how to make this card watch the video below:
