CAST Promo Blitz -- Cards

This Saturday the CAST team once again hosted a Promo Blitz Thread where many of us pitched in and promoted each others listings.  Those of us who participated had fun.  I know I enjoyed seeing the listings and familiarizing myself with more of the many talented CAST team participants.  If you are interested in joining the promo blitz and getting your item seen, the next promo thread will open on Tuesday evening through Wednesday evening.   These cards are some of  the listings from this weeks thread. Check out these creative and unique greeting cards by CAST team artist and crafters.

CAST Promo Thread Favorites

The CAST team has been hosting weekly promotional threads where anyone on the team can post a item to be promoted if they are willing to promote others in return. There are two threads scheduled - one midweek on Wednesday and the weekend one on Saturdays.    Those that have participated have gotten lots of views and even some sales.  It has been fun and I know I have enjoyed viewing all the featured posts and becoming more familiar with the many cast shops.

Here are some of my favorite items from the past promo threads:

Walker Helping Hand Pocket Pouch by JCsSewingroom on Etsy
This Walker Bag Helping Hand Pocket Pouch is made to attach to walkers, scooters or the back of a wheelchair with hook and loop fasteners on the straps.  It's great for carrying stuff while  
maneuvering a wheelchair, walker or scooter. 
If you need to get the mail or newspaper, take your book or magazine with you to another room, or just keep the phone close by, your Helping Hand Pocket Pouch can give you the extra pockets you need to free your hands.

Beauty Botanical Heart Pendant by CROSSyourHEARTau
The pendant is made from a painted wooden heart (H5cm x W4.5cm), decorated with paper with vintage botanical flower drawings and handwriting. The word 'beauty' has been added. It is finished with a clear glaze and hangs from a silver finding. The silver colored ball chain measures 46cm (approx 18inches).

10 Photo Black and White Photo Ruffle Bag by SewEndless on Etsy
 How great would this be for a new mom or even a proud grandma. 
The photo images are printed onto photo fabric, cut out and sewn onto coordinating blocks of cotton fabric.  The strips are then gathered into ruffles and sewn onto black bottom weight fabric, and made into a box-style bag. The lining is cotton and the scarf is removeable

These are just a few of the talented CAST team artists who have participated in the promo threads.
Join us for a future thread - either on Wednesday or Saturday.
