Craft For A Cause

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator from Joshua,TX.

Today, I’d like to share with you a card that fully has a purpose!!! It’s my special design for the Heart of Stampin’ Up Award – Make A Difference project for James Schoolhouse’s Back To School Bash.

Today’s project features a little bit of both up and coming product in combination with a touch of some retired product as well. I just couldn’t resist sending kids back to school without an apple and what a great way to turn something old into something new. If you still have this in your craft stash – break it back out and play along! If you do not own this I am terribly sorry that you missed it but maybe you can find it second hand online for a reasonable price or create a similar project using our many wonderful products for example instead of an apple maybe using our Sweet Strawberry Punch.
