After three full days of laying low due to a nasty flu bug I have worked non-stop today playing catch up! Besides a FB Live recording, recording a card class, unboxing and sacking orders (with one more left to complete on the dining room table) we’ve been busy. I say we because my husband Jim has helped with unboxing and packaging – without that help I doubt I would have got it all accomplished on my own because I’ve kind of hit the proverbial wall or wearing out!
Using Card Making As A Fund Raising Idea For Our Church Youth!
Today’s grouping of cards have a double use – a project for my FB LIVE this morning AND a sample of cards to use for a money maker for our youth at church! They are planning on attending the National Youth Conference this summer and are needing money making ideas. I have access to service grants through Thrivent – a Lutheran Benevolent organization with mutual funds, insurances, etc. I believe with the help our stamping ladies in church we can create these cards in a morning session!
Thrivent encourage members to apply for $250 grants as service within our communities. We received word last week our grant was approved, and we will be using the seed money from the grant to purchase supplies to make over 300 greeting cards! We will package 5 cards together in Stampin’ Up!’s acetate boxes with ribbon and tag – I am positive they will sell for $10 a box and more than double our starting funds!

The Final Added Touches Makes For Great Marketing!
FB LINK To Watch These Cards Come To Life!
There was certainly a method to my madness about how I cut the DSP to create a maximum number of cards (off the top of my head I counted over 75 card possibilities from one package!) click on the link below to catch the recording.
