3rd Annual Cutest Video Hop Ever + $1000 in Giveaways!

All winners have been announced HERE.


Hello and welcome to the 3rd Annual Cutest Video Hop Ever! I'm excited to be crafting with my son for this event and inspiring the next generation of crafters. So many of your favourite companies have generously donated 30 prizes for this video hop and the full list of prizes can be found at the bottom of this post. All of the artists' YouTube links are below. Please remember that comments here on the blog, while greatly appreciated, are not eligible for the giveaways below. You must leave your comments on YouTube. The more you comment, the higher your chances of winning!

We had the pleasure of playing with products from Ranger Ink, Lawn Fawn and Catherine Pooler Designs! Damian's first card features the Distress Watercolour Crayon Kit from Ranger Ink. He used the Distress Crayons to create a grid background, added water and stamped the butterfly with Archival ink included in the kit. Then he added a frame using white foil cardstock and embellished the piece with polymer clay Bitty Paws.

We collaborated together on this second card featuring Lawn Fawn's Let's Go Nuts stamp set and Into the Woods 6x6 paper pack. Damian coloured the images with Copic markers and I stencilled the background using the Layered Lakeside Mountain stencils from Trinity Stamps. The card base uses Catherine Pooler's Essentials Slimline Dies.

Our third collaboration features Catherine Pooler's Nice List stamp set, and new ink colours Cranberry Fizz and Deck the Halls from the Jolly Holiday Collection which was just released yesterday. The images were heat embossed and Damian watercolored the images using the inks. I added fuzzy fun flock to the hat and popped up both images on mini action wobbles.


We're incredibly grateful to Tim Holtz and Ranger Ink, Lawn Fawn and Catherine Pooler Designs for sending product to several of our designers.

Thank you so much to all of the wonderful individuals and companies who have donated 30 prizes worth over $1000 for this fun event! The winners will be chosen randomly from all comments left on each of our videos. The more you comment, the better your chances of winning! Comments will close at 11:59 p.m. EST on October 1, 2020 and winners will be announced on my blog on October 5, 2020.

Hi Emily. I appear as one of the winners, I already submitted the form some days ago but I am not sure if I did it correctly :-) I guess I need to wait for an email, sorry I do not mean to be so eager. Thanks in advance!
