Charity Fund Raising Kit

Hello friends
Today is the day!
I am revealing the kit to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House in Camberwell.
 
As you may recall if it hadn't have been for this fine house I would not 
have been able to stay with Elliott while he underwent brain surgery at King's.
It is worth mentioning that the McDonalds restaurants assist these houses 
in getting them up and running.  Once that is done, they can only remain open
through charity donations.

This is where I've stepped in and decided to help by put together a kit 
that can be purchased here or in the studio/shop. 
It is a mini photo tag/brag book featuring some of my favourite dies. 
Within each kit you will receive all the die cuts, foil bird cage, extra patterned paper, 
wooden embellishment, ribbon, 3D foam pads and instructions.  
 You just need to add some photos, distress ink, stamping and liquid adhesive. 
As you can see, I chose to dedicate my little tag book to Elliott.
 It can be themed to your choice - please note papers may differ slightly
from kit to kit but I promise they are all lovely and good quality.
With every kit sold there will be a raffle ticket inside - keep this safe
as I will be announcing some superb prizes kindly donated by 
Spellbinders®, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, WOW Embossing Powders,
Creative Expressions, Sue Wilson, The Hobby House, Personal Impressions,
Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine, Scrapbook Magazine and more.
Also, the very lovely Kathy has knitted a shawl from the alpacas she breeds.
She spins the wool and then hand knits the lace pattern - all handmade on her farm in Hampshire.
There will be an event next month in the studio/shop - I will be announcing the date soon.
I can guarantee it will involve cake!


The cost of purchasing the kit via my blog will be £7.50 -
this includes the postage, packing and a raffle ticket.
All proceeds will go to the charity.

I've placed a PayPal button below but should you wish to purchase 
by cheque then please feel free to email me christine.emberson@blueyonder.co.uk


If you would like to purchase extra raffle tickets (honestly, the prizes have blown me away!)
they will be going on sale via my blog and in the studio/shop next week.

I fully appreciate that this project may not be everyone's cup of tea so
I've taken the liberty of placing a 'donate' button should you wish to pass on the kit
but would still like to help - any pennies will be gratefully received for such a fantastic charity.


As always - huge thanks to all of you for your kindness, support,
emails, comments and more, you have no idea how much you've helped me
and my boys over the last few months - you are all wonderful.
Much love.

Just bought the kit, Christine. It looks great but is not my usual style, so it will be a mini 'experiment' for me! All the best for your fundraising xxx.

Morning Christine,
Made my purchase, this is not something I would usually do, but I'm going for it, it will be good to do something different. Mitchell must have worked very hard with the GC to get the kits ready.
Take care.

Hi Christine, bought my kit-looks great- looking forward to making my brag book about my little dog Barney. Strange thing , had not heard of Ronald McDonald house till it was mentioned on your blog. Yesterday a charity collection bag from them came through the letter box, so now have two opportunities to help them. Good luck with you fundraising, hope you raise loads of money

Hi Christine. I have ordered my kit. Like lots of others it is not something I have done before but what a good reason to start! I will be putting pics of our two gorgeous grandaughters in it. Thanks Mitchell for all of your hard work in making the kits and I hope you are improving a little everyday Elliot. This is a great idea Christine. Thank you. Take care.

Toni said...

Hello Christine, I've just placed my order along with lot's of other supporters by the sound of it. I haven't done one of these type of albums before so it will be something totally new for me and I'm looking forward to it. Well done to Mitchell for all his hard work up to now and certainly from now by the sound of it. He's going to be very busy I'm sure. A very worthy cause for fundraising and a lovely dedication to Elliott. He deserves it.
Look forward to hearing more about the 'cake' event too.
Good luck with it all.

Tag looks great Christine. As much as I hate McDonalds I do appreciate this charity, I already donate through my Son (he is doing a sky jump in August) as he raises funds for the one associated with Alder Hey Childrens Hospital in Liverpool as they were very helpful when his son dies, good luck, xxx

Ita O'Byrne O'Keeffe said...

Hi Christine first what a lovely photo of yourself with your two lovely boys,A lovely kit and I hope it will make a good bit of money for the charity.
Marks and Spencer also have a house for Family's in Great Ormond Street ,just by the hospital, it is not until you need this facility that people know about them.
Enjoy your Sunday,and good luck with the fund raising

I've just ordered a kit, although I've never made a brag book before - but it's such a good cause. Well done to Mitchell for cutting out all those die cut shapes - I bet he has huge muscles now!

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Christine, I have just bought mine, this will be my first tag book, can't wait. I can't believe these fantastic places have to rely only on donations, all the great work they do. Thankfully you are doing this fantastic fundraiser for them, and we are more than happy to help.
The sample looks brilliant, and I am so looking forward to receiving mine. Thanks to Mitchell for all his hard work, and lot of hugs to you all.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
