Bush Fire Fundraising

With the recent Bush Fires in Victoria many people have felt like they wanted to do something to help – I know I tried many avenues to volunteer and various other means to help. While I have done practical things like donate money, given blood and put my name on the volunteer list, I still felt like this wasn’t doing enough. Espeically with the money going to the Red Cross – which is a fantasic cause – but I wanted to do something a little more personal. So below I have outlined ways in which YOU can support me in donating funds to an individual family from Kinglake West who have lost everything. By passing on this information to others you know, near and far, I’m sure we can raise some much needed funds for this family.

With the help of Stampin’ Up! donating a whole box of goodies, and adding a few extras from my personal supplies, I have put together 3 HUGE prizes!! Each prize includes card and scrappin’ kits, stamps, papers, embellishments, and much, much more. I would estimate each of the 3 prizes to be well over $200 in value!
Tickets are priced at $1 each – you can buy tickets direct from me or put together a collection at your workplace, or with family and friends and let me me know how much you’ve raised and you will receive 1 ticket for every dollar you raise! I won’t physically send you tickets but will write them out here and place them in a hat to be drawn.
The raffle will be drawn on Friday, April 17th.

2. Creative Card Night/Day
Come along to my place (Mill Park, Melbourne), for a fun night of chatting and creating! I will be donating all products for the class where you will make 3 different card projects, learn some new techniques and join in with some games with special prizes! You just need to bring along a cutting mat, adhesives and scissors.
Cost: $20 (all proceeds are donated)
Dates/Times: I am offering 2 different sessions but the seats are limited as I can only fit so many in!!
*FRIDAY 3rd April 7 – 10pm
*TUESDAY 7th April 1 – 4pm
(If there are not enough places I will make an extra date)

If you can’t make it to a class how about joining in with an online class? You’ll receive a kit full of supplies for you to use (and keep to re-use again), and instructions for 2 scrapbooking pages PLUS a double page layout, and 3 cards! Your kit will include a stamp set, inks, cardstock and papers to complete all projects 🙂
*Kits will need to be purchased ASAP to make sure the stock doesn’t sell out!! Email me now to place your order!

Girl OR Boy Scrapping/Card Kit $65

Combined Girl AND Boy Scrapping/Card Kit $80

(You can contact me via email for payment options).

4. NEW Idea Book & Catalogue
Stampin’ Up! will be releasing a NEW Idea Book & Catalogue on April 1st and I will be donating 20% of all purchases between April 1st – April 15th. If you’d like to pre-order a catalogue for $10 (plus postage) email me 🙂
