One week until WCMD!

World Card Making Day is celebrating its third anniversary on Saturday, October 4 - just one week away! Sponsored by Paper Crafts Magazine, WCMD is an event celebrated throughout the country and beyond.

WHAT

World Card Making Day is a holiday especially for card makers around the world to:

Celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family

Kick off (and get a head start on) the holiday card-making season

WHEN

The first Saturday of each October, kicking off the holiday card-making season, the most popular time for creating and sharing handmade greetings.

WHO

The card-making community worldwide, including hobbyists, beginning card makers, manufacturers of card-making products, retail sellers of products, educators, and press are invited to come together to celebrate this holiday and creative passion.

WHY

It is a day to connect with fellow card makers both near and far, to applaud the creativity that powers the craft, and to provide an opportunity for card makers to connect and find resources that will empower, inspire, and encourage them in their card making.


Make sure that you check back next Saturday for a fun giveaway and holiday card ideas (getting a head start on my family's holiday cards is my favorite use of the day!). In the meantime, you can find out more about WCMD on the WCMD website.

See you next Saturday! Be well.
