Scrappers Give Thanks is an annual community scrapbooking project benefiting a chosen charitable cause or organization. Founded by Jennifer S. Wilson with gracious support from Anna Aspnes, our inaugural project in 2009 delivered over 650 handmade cards to Operation Write Home.

The 2nd annual Scrappers Give Thanks project has a goal of assembling 2000 participant-created 4×6 pages into 100 ten page (double-sided) mini albums to be delivered to 10 children’s hospitals across the country. Submitted pages should be scrapbook-style mini artworks containing positive words, happy images, jokes etc. and may be in digital or tangible formats.

Specifications
The Scrappers Give Thanks mini albums will be assembled with 4×6 page protectors and o-rings. To ensure a consistent look and feel, participants must adhere to the following specifications:

>> Single-sided 4×6 pages
>> Vertical orientation only (4″ wide by 6″ tall)
>> Include age-appropriate positive messages and/or images
>> No glitter, embellishments greater than 1/4″ thick or copyrighted images
