Default AUGUST 2016 Mission - CARDS FOR A CAUSE

2016 Cards For A Cause
AUGUST MISSION
Stamp from the Heart!


ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:
The Birthday Party Project

Description of Organization:
The Birthday Party Project throws birthday parties for homeless children at shelters and transitional living facilities. They go all out – decorations, cake, presents, games, etc. Volunteers provide gifts for the children. Handmade cards by you will be included with these gifts!


CONTACT PERSON:
Teresa - va.sunshine

Referred by:
Darlene DeVries

TYPE OF CARDS:
Birthday cards for kids ages 1-18. Any size works. Please include an envelope.

SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:
please do not include anything that may be considered “sharp” that would be awesome...such as metal, straight pins, or staples.

GUIDELINES:
Please keep in mind, we are representing SCS by sending our cards each month. Recycling is always good, but only use products on your cards that you would like to receive on cards. Also, our card donations are not tax deductible and it is not required. Please do not ask for a receipt. There have been groups that will send thank you's but the "referred by" person keeps us informed and passes on the thank you's. Most of these organizations are volunteers and spend countless hours helping others, lets help make their jobs easier and bless them in helping others.


MAILING ADDRESS:
LiveLoveCards
PO Box 670126
Dallas, TX 75367
ATTN: Birthday Party Project


For a little added inspiration you can join us in playing along with the OPTIONAL challenge each month. This is only optional and you do not have to play along to send your cards to the featured cause for the month. We always take cards no matter if you play along in the challenge or not.
This months optional challenge is to make a birthday card. Be sure to use the keyword C4AC42 so that we can check out your card and comment! To see this months gallery C4AC42 click here.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Another exciting announcement, we now have a badge for you to proudly display on your blog; here is the link.
Sticky:Cards For A Cause Blog Badge

Also, we have a section now for on going Cards For A Cause, these are organizations that take cards all year. If after your monthly generous giving you have others, go here..thank you so much for all you do!

Fellow SCSer's, thank you for spreading your SCS love! Please feel free to mail your cards all throughout the month of June!

Once you have mailed them come back to us here an

Another great cause. I hope to be able to send some cards out this month, now that I'm semi-settled at least from moving. My mom (happyinhawaii) must have a crystal ball or something. She's been saying for the last week or so that she needs to make some kid's cards. I think she's got a head start on this month's cards. lol

I can't tell you how thrilled I was (fist pump!) when I saw this month's cause. Can any cards be more enjoyable to make than kids birthday cards? I think not... all that fun, cuteness, bright colors... and possible interactive elements. Sigh. This is already turning out to be my best month of 2016. So glad to be here.

Julie, I know for a fact I've seen lots of cards you've made that would work for kids. Beautiful cards! You've used bears, cats, dogs, and flowers ... Love, love, love your cards.

One thing I would say....this is aimed at ages up to 18. remember, everyone remembers the "kids"...but not so much the older children. And yes, they need bright and happy, not doom and gloom, but a lot of adult and "older" stamps would work.


Look at the stamps...some might work, if you blocked off a portion while stamping. Some might work, if you use a word from this stamp, and one from that (or even letters). You can perhaps even use lettering stamps from halloween or christmas for the lettering.


And sometimes, even a change of colors can make the stamp or elements used changed from "adult" to young. Heck, I am sure that even using some of the elements from halloween, brightened up with colors, can use (think things like...monster high school? can't think of the right name...or harry potter, or some of the vampire shows aimed towards teens and young adults).


And if you still feel you can't really make one towards a child..or even if you can, think of holiday birthdays...halloween and christmas. Try to challenge yourself to make a birthday card with those themes. I know some people try to "seperate" them, at christmas, so that the child isn't robbed...but i think with olders, they might like to see the challenge of their special day being honored even more.


And one more thing...if you don't have a stamp, make one! take foam craft sheets, and cut the shape out...or use your cricut (I forget the material you can use...perhaps if it's just for a couple of stampings, you could even use cardstock or cereal boxes, cut the shape, put it on a backing of some kind and stamp!). Wrap string or rubber bands around a block and stamp for some funky backgrounds. And think/rely on the picture, not the words...for example, brightly colored balloons...don't even need to write a thing! *laughs*


And even still lost? cut out the letters ...or 2 big H and B, then hand-write in the other letters. *giggles*


hope that helps for some inspiration! so says the person, who hasn't "started" making cards or anything yet (again)


Mary

Just finished boxing this month's cards... 42 total, that cover ages 1-18. Having some vacation helped a lot, plus they were so much fun to create. I loved every moment. Later on today, I will drop them off at the Post Office. Thank you so much for the opportunity to contribute, and I look forward to September.

Card making is on hold for me for a while....My stamping stuff is even about to be boxed up. Why you ask? Because of our exciting news: We shockingly got pre-approved for a home loan! So our search has begun. I thought we had found the perfect house - move in ready, in our price range and we are supposed to walk through it on Monday night with our realtor. Then yesterday afternoon it went "pending sale" - UGH! But we are on the hunt and know that we will be moving so I'm starting to box things up...and my craft room is the first room. I'm still here...just not crafting right now...but will again soon - I promise!
