Don’t Forget to Bring Your Cards!

If you haven’t made up a few cards, no worries, it is not too late! Make sure to bring your cards with you to Scrapbook USA Expo and donate them to our Care With Cards Program.
We are collecting cards for Operation Write Home and Huntsman Cancer Institute.
Here is the scoop:
Operation Write Home- visit their website for specific guidelines on their cards
Huntsman Cancer Institute- They are in need of “Thank You” and “Just Because” Cards. These are perfect for cancer patients who spend a little time in the Hospital and would like to share a few sentiments with family or hospital staff.
Huntsman Youth Card Kits- This is a fun one, and there is a HUGE need. Healing arts is an important part of the cancer treatment process. By spending some time doing arts and crafts the patients are able enjoy the process of creativity and are able to finish up with a cute card they can use to write their sentiments to someone they love.

Cards for Operation Write Home and Huntsman Cancer Institute
New at this show will be our Creative Gallery. Wander the display of hundreds of cards donated at the show. Get inspiration from others and show off your cards! Remember, you receive a raffle ticket for each card you donate, but of course quality trumps quantity!

Last spring we collected over 3200 cards for Operation Write Home. We are aiming even higher this time! We already have collected over 500 cards. Let’s bring in 4000 cards at our fall show!!

Message from Operation Write Home’s website:
"Do your best work! Our heroes are giving up so much for us and they deserve the very best we can create for them. Plus - as hard as it is to think about, it's possible your card may be the final communication between a hero and their loved ones at home...make sure it's the best work you know how to do, that it's on good cardstock that will last well in a scrapbook, and that everything's attached securely and won't fall apart. These cards may be heirlooms - so let's create some really beautiful ones!"
See you all next week!!

    1. The theme is "Autumn Hues". You turn them in at the center stage. We would like them without photos added to them yet. Friday's layouts will be due by 6 pm. Saturday's by 3 pm. We will announce winners both evenings. Thanks!
