PROJECT Reach Out: Thinking of You

By | Design Team Tips, General | 2 Comments

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.

ABOUT PROJECT: REACH OUT:

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.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

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.

Kelly Lunceford is with us sharing a beautiful card showcasing our next theme, Birthdays.

 

“When the Stay-at-Home orders were put in place, my cardmaking focus turned to bright and cheery cards to send to family and friends! My heart SANK when I realized that during that time there were birthdays that I’d forgotten! I can only imagine how hard many of these quarantine birthdays have been! I’ve made a much better effort to make sure I’m getting those birthday cards sent, but for those that I’ve forgotten, I decided to put together these floral designs to let them know I care! How about you? Have you forgotten any birthdays? Let’s remedy that and pop some handmade birthday wishes in the mail!”
