Donations for A Cause: CBLKD Postcard Collaborative Works with CMD, IBDD, Scrappy Bee and SID

I had in previous post
shared my project for a cause
since year 2012 and maybe even
earlier.

 . . .  with my postcarding work
of my photography and other more.

Now, I would like to share further more
my postcarding work donations for a cause
thru my hobby of postcrossing.

As the type of postcards that can be sent
from my country are limited to touristic photography postcards
except for another store who produces more touristic postcards in graphic art design,
I plunged into creating my own postcards since year 2012
thru digi art and / or digital scrapbook art.




These postcards I do create I send freely
thru postcrossing to help postcard collectors
and themed card collectors to my own art cards.

And no, not a museum had yet financed my postcards.
And I did wished to have my postcards be museum cards too here in my country someday.


In the previous posts I shared my postcarding work in different art mediums.  Now I would like to share and thank my sponsors of digital scrapbook supplies for my digiart to digital scrapbook art postcards.

They are:

Crescent Moon Designs turned Charly Renay Designs;
Inspired by Dominic Designs (had closed up);
Scrappy Bee (a digital scrapbook kit supplies store); and
Sunshine Inspired Designs


I started with each in chronological order working for them as their Creative Team Member to Product Kit Writer to Social Media Accounts Writer to their own Blog Writers of their Digital Scrapbook Kit Products.

It was a fun job and I do get to work with all of their products for free, with me as a Layout Artisan for them.  With extra work as Freebie Makers and other more work behind the scenes for them, they granted me and allowed me use of their same products also for my postcarding work.  This made them my sponsors for my Postcarding work which I make use in my hobby of Postcrossing.  

Since, I made it as a Postcrossing.com & PHLpost Ambassador in year 2015,
I would like to thank my digital scrapbook kit supplies bosses
for helping me reach this milestone last year in 2015
with my postcarding work project for a cause,
for reaching the benchmark for
the number of postcards sent and received.
And also writing my experience about
Postcrossing.com and what postcrossing is all about.

Writing about postcrossing did clinched finally the
Ambassador spot for me.

My postcarding work never became an earning business for me.
It has remained solely a Project for A Cause.

It was something that I never thought of at first
but really grateful to be and had become
an Ambassador in doing so in so many ways.

And, yes, I was really finding it off
with such huge expense for me to carry
for such postcard production 
(for many companies, this is just for them, minimal production)
But this is only how much I can carry and
do for the love of my hobby and for art.


Thanks, everyone!


Thanks, Charly R., Tiffany Nicole B., 
the team I was with at Scrappy Bee from the graphic designers to social media team to praise team and to Digital Scrapbook Kit Designers, and
also Thanks to Ania A.!!


yours truly,

2015 Enchanted Kingdom: Eldar

Hi, everyone!


This scrapbook album is a request to be
my personal project for me to undertake and to keep.

I'll just have it up on all of
my social media accounts and platforms.

Other than that we're running out of
bookshelf space for more scrapbook albums,
it's difficult going back a year ago or
even how many years ago.

This album is about my visit to
Echanted Kingdom in 2015
with my younger sister Angeli,
having family tickets courtesy of
the company's activity for their employees.

I remember the first and last time I was
there at their office.
We were invited to do a Bazaar
within their office premises in year 2012.

Their HR Officer chatted with me at that time
that I just had to give off
what happy companies I have been with
and client companies I did have
2 to 3 decades ago have
for their own employees . . . 

. . .  and one of them is having family days.

I never thought my younger sister's company
would think of having one for their own employees.

And nope, the HR Officer didn't order from my
bazaar table in year 2012. hahaha

She was just hungry for a chit-chat . . . {sigh}
. . .  and left thereafter after having such chit-chat.

And no, I'm not their employee nor
am their consultant but
my invisible presence is always felt in their office
with me doing my art or crafting in my own home.

And nope, I don't go there after a one-time bazaar. . .
nor do I know any of their numbers there.
haha!


Anyway,
I'm sharing my 1st 2 own Photo-Plus like layouts work of
my own chosen 2015 Enchanted Kingdom photos:

Pres. Elpidio Quirino Maxicards

Hi, everyone!

I have earlier in the 3rd quarter of 2016
signified to the Postmaster of Las Piñas City Hall's Post Office
that I will be retiring after my last works
(this is in Maximaphily and Philately) for 2016
from Las Piñas Philatelic.

I will remain solely as
CBLK Philatelic and CBLK Maximaphily
sourcing my postage stamps
from the Post Office branch of Las Piñas City Hall.

I have a lot of backtracking to do
as CBLK Philatelic and CBLK Maximaphily
as I have promised this work to do,
as much as I can do and possibly can, 
my prior postmasters who have taken seat
at Las Piñas post office branch.
These are the postmasters who have left word for me
to fulfill and had moved on to other post office branches.

Aside from the above,
I did mention my forward plan
in Maximaphily
which concerns other post offices abroad.
But this has to wait for now.



Here I am sharing one of my last works
as CBLK Philatelic and CBLK Maximaphily 
with and also as
Las Piñas Philatelic.

These are my Pres. Elpidio Quirino Maxicard Series of 2016
on the tri-occasion of 
His Hero's Burial, Birth and Death Anniversary in 2016:
(These cards are now my private Creo by Lady Katutz Hero Maxicard Collection)
note:  one of which was sent to the USA in March 2016 with
hopes that it would reach their Postal Museum.


Occassion:  Hero's Burial (Feb at the Libangan ng mga Bayani)
Cancellation:  March 8, 2016 - Las Piñas Central Post Office, Philippines 



Occassion:  Birth Anniversary (Apr 15)
Cancellation:  April 15, 2016 - Las Piñas Post Office, Philippines 



Occassion:  Death Anniversary (Dec. 30)
Cancellation:  January 7, 2017 - Robinson's Ext Post Office Las Piñas, Philippines 



(one of my Elpidio Quirino plain postcards ... had cancelled the back of the bio card)
