5th Annual Season's Givings Blog Hop + VIDEO + Giveaways!!!

This giveaway is now closed.
The winner was announced HERE.


Happy New Year and welcome to the Season's Givings Blog Hop! Latisha Yoast started this annual hop four years ago to celebrate the spirit of giving over the holidays and I'm thrilled to be part of it again this year. Every single company or designer on the list below has a giveaway! All you need to do is visit their blogs and leave a comment. Grab your favourite beverage, a snack or two, and start hopping!


I'm so excited to be sneak peeking one of Neat & Tangled's upcoming sets, My Favorite Nut, which will be available for purchase on Friday, January 6th, 2017! I will update my links here as soon as the new release products are available in-store. My card also features Big Top Birthday, Journaling Numbers, Seeing Stars and Little Bits. Watch the video below to see how it all came together:




With the exception of the squirrel from My Favorite Nut, all of the images from Big Top Birthday were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured with Copic markers. Then I used the Seeing Stars die to dry emboss the front panel.


The numbers creating the year were die cut from Journaling Numbers dies and layered with glitter gold cardstock over fun foam, then adhered with glossy accents.  To embellish and tie in the dry embossed panel with the sparkly 2017, I die cut glitter gold stars using the Little Bits dies.



Here's the full list of hop participants:

Lawn Fawn


***Giveaway***

For my giveaway, you have until 11:59 p.m. EST on Saturday, January 7, 2016 to leave a comment for your chance to win the following products. I will announce the winner via Random.org on my blog shortly thereafter. Please remember to check back here to see if you're the lucky winner! A lot of my past winners do not contact me and I have no way of contacting them so I have to re-draw to be fair to the other participants.


I hope you all have an amazing New Year filled with love, happiness and crafty goodness. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thank you so much for sharing your creativity and artistry; you inspire me so much. My crafting goal for 2017 is to try to create at least once a week. Doesn't seem like a lot but balancing work, my family, and taking care of my mom leaves little time for anything else but crafting freshens my soul so it's important.

Julia said...

Very fun. I absolutely love your card. I have a thought on your comment about people not contacting you when they win. It is quite possible they forgot to check back, I get overwhelmed sometimes with the number of blogs I go to on a regular basis and sometimes I enter giveaways and sometimes not, so I will often miss who wins them. So would it be possible for you to email the winner? Thanks for all that you do!
