Earlier this summer my former co-worker, and resident amazing paper crafter, got married and presented the best DIY wedding I’ve ever attended. Megan loves paper crafting with old books, so when she announced her engagement and that they would be tackling most of the wedding components themselves, we knew we were in for a treat.
If you’ve read my blog before or some of my posts for Metro Parent, you know I love paper crafting and stamping. I’ve got a few companies that are my go-to sources for creative supplies and quality products. Stampin’ Up! is high on my list for a variety of reasons. Their commitment to helping others is definitely one of them.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Stampin’ Up! will donate $1 for every active Paper Pumpkin, the company’s monthly crafting subscription service, subscriber plus another $1 for every new subscriber to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation now thru October 10. When subscribers receive their October kit, it will be in a one-time only pink box with the slogan “Stamp Out Breast Cancer.”
Many companies and brands offer pink-minded products during the fall to raise awareness for breast cancer. What I appreciate about the Stampin’ Up! offer is that it’s simple and straightforward. Sometimes that’s all you need.
Make sure to check out Stampin’ Up!’s website to learn more and sign up for Paper Pumpkin if you’re not currently a subscriber. Your participation now will help the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the future.
With any job, from craft projects to home repair, you need the right tool to get the task completed. Over on Metro Parent I’ve put together a collection of stamps from Stampin’ Up! that cover a wide range of occasions, from needing a sympathy card for a child to celebrating a fabulous teacher. Head over there to see my favorites.
I love crafts that provide a few moments of relaxation at the end of a long day. They don’t necessarily have to part of a bigger project – they can just help you unwind. Many of us have picked up a few coloring books lately, but there’s another great quiet-time hobby you shouldn’t forget about: origami. (more…)
