Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities & Blended Bloom

Of all the alcohol markers that Stampin Up has, Cherry Cobbler is my favorite color.  It is such a rich yet vibrant color, almost regal like velvet 😉

I am hosting an Introduction to Alcohol Marker Coloring class this week, and here is the card the group will be making in the workshop.  Each class participant will get a FREE pack of the Cherry Cobbler marker trio as part of their class fee too!

Here is the card:

Stampin Up Celebrate Today Balloons Card and Video Tutorial

Hiya Stampers! This new Stampin Up Occasions catalog is seriously amazing.  Every single stamp set I ordered I have been able to make so many great projects with.

Here is one of my most recent project 7 accompanying video tutorial:  a large Celebrate balloons card.  It’s long and tall, but fits perfectly into a standard business size #10 envelope and can be sent in the mail for a regular postage stamp (no additional cost)!

Karma Cards: Send A Smile 4 Kids

Send A Smile 4 Kids needs your help crafters! As some of you know, I create cards for charity, that will be sent to children in participating hospitals in cities throughout Canada & America.  Here is their post with all the details.  Canadian readers click here
Send A Smile 4 Kids
Operation Write Home recently announced that due to the draw down of troops overseas, they do not need any where near the cards they have been receiving. That is a good thing, of course, and they will continue to collect cards for troops overseas, just not as many.

As a result, SAS4Kids has been contacted by many of those wonderful card makers who have been donating to OWH and are now looking for another cause they can donate to. We are thrilled, of course,  and will happily accept more cards for our kids. But what we really need now is more children’s hospitals to donate our cards to.

We would love to help more kids, but what is needed to do that is some more volunteers who are willing to accept sent packages of cards for kids, sort and label them, and bring or send them to a children’s hospital or two close by where you live. We have the Midwest covered, but would love a site in the East, West and/or Southern U.S. and even some sites overseas. If you are from Canada, please contact our Canadian sister blog via the side blog badge to see if they have any need for additional sites or volunteers.

If you think you might like to volunteer to help, your first step would be to contact SAS4Kids via the Contact Feature on the side of the blog. If no one else has volunteered in your part of the country (or world), I would approve you to approach children’s hospitals close to you to see if they would like to receive cards for their patients. Please read all the pages on the top of the blog and refer the hospital contacts to our blog as well. Feel free to copy and paste any info you want to share. I work with the Child Life or Volunteer Coordinators in the hospitals we currently serve, so that is maybe a place to start when contacting the hospitals.

We truly appreciate all the cards we receive for our kids inpatient in children’s hospitals, and will continue to distribute all the cards we receive. Our current needs are mostly fall and winter holiday cards and birthday and thank you cards. Keep in mind the older kids when designing cards too- both boys and girls.

You can help in many way:
  • Collecting cards in your area
  • Creating & donating cards for the kids
  • Work with SS4K to find more hospitals to participate in this great cause
