SAS4Kids: August Accolades

Hi, everyone! A big thanks to everyone who played along with our August Thank You Card Challenge. 

It's time for a few SAS4Kids shout-outs. Here are three cards that caught our DT's eyes. 

 #1 Allisa

The soft colors (and heart and butterfly elements) are so sweet...
while that shaker element adds an unexpected bit of fun to this thank you card.


These are such wonderful SAS4Kids cards, with perfect images and sentiments
for expressing thanks to dedicated doctors, nurses and hospital staffers. 


#8 Ma-Mi
We were taken by all the details in this sweet CAS card. The stenciled corner element
brings focus to that sweet image and the border Xs make for a perfect finishing touch.


Congratulations, ladies! Great job!!! Thanks for sharing your amazing talents with us.

SAS4Kids: Cute Fall/Halloween 4 the Kids

Hi everybody! Welcome to our September SAS4Kids Challenge.

Seems like so much has happened since our last challenge. We hope you are all safe and sound. And, we hope you are able to commemorate this holiday weekend with some special family time.

Labor Day weekend must mean it's September. September! Guess that means it's time to sip on a pumpkin spice latte while inking up a Jack-o'-lantern stamp. So, to help our shippers with their upcoming fall shipments, we are focusing on cute fall/Halloween cards for our kids. 

This month, we are thrilled to have Allisa Steinlicht join us as a Guest Designer. Allisa, who shares her adventures in crafting at Rocky Mountain Paper Crafts, has been an avid scrapbooker and card maker for twenty years. Welcome, Allisa! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us here at SAS4Kids.












While we are featuring fall/Halloween cards this month, any kiddie-appropriate card can be linked up for this month's challenge and you have until Friday, October 1 to link up your creation. While you aren't required to donate your card to SAS4Kids in order to play along with us, one of our hospitalized patients would love it if you did. Card guidelines and shipper information can be found by clicking on the tabs at the top of this page.

If you want to receive notifications about new SAS4Kids posts, please enter your email address in our sidebar. And, remember non-bloggers are now able to join in our challenge fun! If you are a non-blogging cardmaker who would like to link up a card, instructions can be found in THIS VIDEO(Note: The first half of the video is general InLinkz material that applies to setting up a blog InLinkz link. You will need to fast forward a bit to get to the part of the video that gives specific information for linking up a card image.)

As always, thank you so much for your support of SAS4Kids. We can't wait to see your creation in our September gallery.

SAS4Kids: July Jewels

Hi, everyone! A big thanks to everyone who linked up a card for our Christmas in July Challenge. Our gallery was filled with Santas... and penguins... and trees. Oh, my!

It's time for a few SAS4Kids shout-outs. Here are three cards that caught our DT's eyes. (You'll notice our DT selected a couple of slimline cards this time around. We do ask that, if you are making your cards for SAS4Kids, you check with our shippers to see if their hospitals accept non-A2 cards. Not all of them do. Thank you.)


5. Chrissy

Chrissy's delightful scene is chock-full of texture and dimension, and 
her attention to detail in creating Santa's train and her background is amazing


Our DT was blown away by this interactive pendulum element and,
as always, we loved Trina's pham-tastic coloring!


Kids will love colorful dp and these adorable critters, and
we all really appreciated the tweaks Melanie made to the die cut. 
She made small tweaks that made a big difference in the card's design.

Congratulations, ladies! Great job!!! Thanks for sharing your amazing talents with us.
