***GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED***
When I hear the name Oriental Trading, I automatically think of party supplies…..decorations, goodie bags and more. Don’t you? There’s quite a bit more to this company….not to mention the fact that they’ve been around for over 75 years!
I’m proud to say that Oriental Trading is a strong supporter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and the fight against breast cancer. While they offer many Breast Cancer Awareness Products for sale on their website (perfect for gift-giving), it’s their Pink Ribbon Rubber Duckies that I’ll focus on. Why?
From June 1, 2010 – June 1, 2011, Oriental Trading will donate $3.00 of the $5.99 retail sales price of each Pink Ribbon Rubber Duckies set sold to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® with a minimum guaranteed donation of $100,000.
Pink Ribbon Rubber Duckies – $5.99 per Dozen
Yes, $3 of the $5.99, is donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure! That’s 50%! And you get 12 cute duckies……to give to the kiddos to play with, to hand out to friends as reminders to get mammograms, etc.
CANCER CANNOT DESTROY MEMORIES
One thing that has become even more important to me since losing my mom to breast cancer……scrapbooks. I cherish the photographs I have of her and especially the scrapbook I made her the week she began chemo. Recording the memories I have of my mom is something that I find challenging at times, but I want my daughter to grow up and sense the type of person her Grandma was. I’m sure that I’m not the only one who cherishes the photographs and loves to create scrapbooks to remember those we have loved. Cancer most definitely can’t take memories away from us.
Did you know that Oriental Trading has a large selection of Scrapbooking Supplies? You’ll find:
* Brads & Eyelets
* Card Making
* Scrap Your Own
* Scrapbooking Projects
* Stickers & Rub–Ons
* Templates & Stencils
* Tools & Essentials
I joke that I’m more of a scrapbook supply “collector” since my daughter was born, but I’m slowly catching up with my projects.
One of those projects was to finish a scrapbook I started which would hold all the cards and letters my mom had given me. Can you believe I kept almost every single card and letter since I was born? My mom had started collecting them for me and I never stopped. When I re-read those notes from mom, it’s like I can hear her voice again. Notes from when I was away at college, birthday cards, letters when I spent the summer with grandparents, etc. I cherish these…….and I’m proud to say that thanks to Oriental Trading, I’ve finished the project.
I used Oriental Trading’s “Family” Themed Scrapbooking Supplies to finish this special scrapbook and I couldn’t be happier. The colors of the embellishments and paper are just beautiful…exactly what I wanted. I was so impressed by the sheer quantity of what you can order…..not to mention the price. One of the things that I love about scrapbooking is gathering coordinating pieces so you don’t have to work harder at creating something. It makes it a bit easier, which is important for me when I’m working on something a bit emotional. All the pieces I received coordinate with each other just beautifully.
- 103 pc Family Paper Kit: Includes 6 double-sided 12″ x 12″ papers, 44 die-cuts, two 13″ ribbons, 30 brads and 20 buttons. ($6.99)
- 204 pc Family Embellishment Kit: Includes 80 chipboard letters, 59 chipboard shapes, 4 ribbons, twenty 16mm brads and 40 regular brads in a box. ($11.99)
- 24 pc Family Journal Cards ($3.99)
- 12 Family Transparency Frames (now on sale for $2.99)
My favorite thing: The 24 pc Family Journal Cards ($3.99) – you can order these in other coordinating themes (and I probably will for this price)! You’ll see that I used one on each of the scrapbook pages pictured! They are fabulous!
