Sizzix Events | Crafting with Kids & Moms in So. Cal. Hospitals

Sizzix recently participated in two events hosted by the Craft & Hobby Association’s Southern California Chapter. The events took place at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Children’s Hospital Orange County during the second week in May.

Several designers, manufacturers, and retail stores who are members of CHA’s Southern California Chapter offered their time and product to craft in honor of Nurse’s Day and Mother’s Day.

Chapter members Sizzix and Ellison Education (our sister company) sent both staff and supplies to help with these wonderful events, and were humbled to serve our community.

We used the Big Shot to create colorful, adhesive felt stickers from the Bigz Apple, Flower, Heart & Star Die for nurses, parents and kids with critical illnesses.

We also die-cut the Ellison Braided Wristband using the Big Shot Pro, and created fun gifts for Nurse’s Day and Mother’s Day.

Boys and girls of all ages enjoyed the wristbands and stickers.  They were so happy we were there!  Moms and nurses were so appreciative and said crafting with us was therapeutic and a welcome distraction from their daily schedule of doctor visits and medical tests.

We thank both hospitals for welcoming us, and thank our fellow CHA Chapter members for putting on a great event! We also thank designer Carmen Flores Tannis for donating the material we used to cut out the wristbands!

    What a wonderful gift to give to others to help them take their minds off illnesses and nurses on their long and hard days. And let's not forget the Mothers who got some sweet gifts from their children. And a big THANK YOU to all the companies who donated supplies and personnel to help out. Kudos to all of you.
