Xyron and We R Memory Keepers have partnered to help support Operation Write Home, an organization that provides handmade cards to deployed soldiers so they can write home to their families and loved ones.
Xyron Design Team members are participating and samples of all the great cards have been shared throughout the week on Ain’t She Crafty. Hop on over there to check them all out!
For my cards, I took a cue from my friend Robin who has participated in Operation Write Home frequently. She’s mailed hundreds of cards to the organization that she and friends have made and also those from our Cracker Jack Stampers club. Her cards for this organization are always beautiful without being real dimensional for mailing purposes. She tends to be able to stretch a little paper a long way, yet create a good quality card.
I made several cards using paper by WeR Memory Keepers and a few stamps from my stash that have been in my collection for so long I honestly don’t know which company they are (help me out if anyone recognizes them). I just love the softness of the colors in the collections and was even able to create a cute little baby congrats card without any stamping! These lines coordinate extremely well and the embellishments are perfect on the front as the sentiment, which makes it easy for anyone to be able to create a card with just a few tools. The cards are all held together with Xyron’s Mega Runner and 1/2″ Dot Adhesive, which is quickly becoming a favorite of mine!
Please join us in the worthwhile project! Click the links above for complete information! Happy card making!

What beautiful cards and easy to mail, too! OWH will be so happy to receive these!!!
Thanks Robin! I’m hoping to make more as well. You are a good inspiration! Will you be sending any this year – maybe they can go together? Maybe we’ll make it a Cracker Jack Stampers project!
Linda, you read my mind, I think we should make this a project for the group. And maybe for your workshop in August (little early morning or late night project)
Sounds good to me!
