PROJECT: Reach Out: You Are My Favorite

By April 24, 2020 May 4th, 2020 Design Team Tips, General

Hi everyone, we’re so glad you’re here!

We are very excited to introduce Project: Reach Out. Below, you can find details about this great new feature.


Due to the Coronavirus, many of us are separated from our family and friends which in some cases has caused feelings of loneliness, boredom, depression, and maybe a bit of frustration being stuck at home! This is the perfect time to reach out and touch someone to let them know how important they are to you or to let someone in your community know how much you appreciate all of their hard work. With that in mind, Project: Reach Out was created.


Each week a member of the design team has identified a theme as a challenge for you to create something based on the chosen theme. Once you have completed, please upload a photo of what you created via InLinkz and of course make sure you send it out. If you don’t have anywhere to send your project, send it to us, and we will make sure it gets to just the right person!

Kindness and appreciation go such a long way, sending a beautiful hand-made card is the perfect way to let someone know you are thinking of them. We hope you find enjoyment while participating in this new series of challenges. We are excited to see what you create and to also uplift our communities the best we know how…sharing our love of crafting.


Melissa Phillips is with us sharing a beautiful card showcasing our next theme, You Are My Favorite.

    As always your card is stunning Melissa and so inspiring. I just love how you are able to put colours and patterns together. Just the title has brought to memory of an old PTI set, but which is fairly new to me, but I haven’t use it much. Can’t wait.

    I am really loven’ these challenges. I am getting so many cards and even one card gift set out in the mail. Thank you Ink to Paper, for cheering us up, and spreading kindness to 100’s or even 1000’s more with your wonderful blog posts, to encourage sending out cards! It really encourages both the card maker and the receiver!
