Here are some of the ways the Paper Crafters have been keeping busy here at Robson Ranch and in the greater community.

Craft ‘Til You Drop. A group of ladies joined Pam Costner to spend all day over two days working on their scrapbooks or cardswe call this “Craft Til You Drop.” There were lots of ideas shared such as “pocket pages” for journaling about the pictures in the book, vacation pictures documenting the amazing trips they take, or telling a story about the person behind the camera. A few worked on cards, some of which will be available for sale at the Craft Fair.

Soft Flower Card Class. Chris Haisting shared her special adornment to add color and dimension to areas on our cards. Embellishments are the best part of making cards and help the design stand out.

Scrap Class. The Scrap Class used those leftover pieces of paper to make two unique cards. After making several 3” x ½” strips of the selected paper, the top card lays out the strips in various designs. The card below creates a mosaic design using clear vellum as a base and a variety of paper to create a weave pattern.

Copper Sky Assisted Living. In recognition of the many caregivers, we visited Copper Sky Assisted Living to present thank you cards to the caregivers. Our member Gail Mallen did the honors. Caregivers are individuals who selflessly provide care, whether physical or emotional support, to those who need it most. These ladies represent some of the many caregivers around the Casa Grande community.

Upcoming Charity Work. We are making Mother’s and Father’s Day cards for Eloy Police, Eloy Fire, Caliche Senior Living Community, and Copper Sky Assisted Living. The Paper Crafters enjoy providing their creative cards to bring smiles to others in the community.

Teaching New Techniques. We also teach members different techniques to make cards, and we have lots of supplies and tools for you to use. Come join the fun, meet new people, and laugh.
