3rd Annual Canada Day Video Hop + Over $1000 in Giveaways!

All winners have been announced HERE.

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Canada Day Video Hop! I'm thrilled to be hosting this event for the third year and I'm so grateful for the enthusiasm of our generous sponsors. I hope that you'll find today's video hop to be full of inspiration and also discover a few new crafty Canadian YouTubers, as well as Canadian shops! We have over 20 individual prizes worth a total of over $1000 and some of our sponsors are offering huge discounts at their shops. You can find all of those links and codes at the bottom of this post.

I'm proud to be joined by so many talented cardmakers, planners and scrapbookers, all of whom I'm proud to call friends! Here's the full list of YouTubers participating in today's video hop:


I'm so excited to be creating with these stunning products from Pigment Craft. As I mentioned in my video, Pigment made its debut just over a year ago and I still covet literally everything they release! I decided to make two cards using the same colour palette. 

The colour palette I'm using for both my cards includes the following colours: BlushTajine, Rosewood, Ficus, Lagoon, Juniper and Balsam. The first card uses Ficus but not Juniper and the second card uses Juniper but not Ficus.

I started this card by using the Spring Flower Stencil to create the background. I ended up cutting the 6x6 panel vertically along the left edge. 

Even though the stencilled panel is simply beautiful, I wanted to add some texture so I used the Bitty Diagonal Stripe Stencil and dry embossed the panel in my Spellbinders Platinum 6.

To create the sentiment, I used the Wish Upon a Dandelion stamp set and coordinating dies. I created the ombre effect on the 'lovely' word by using a blending brush and adding Tajine and Rosewood to the Blush-stamped word.

My second card is a shaped-card made with the Jumbo Candy Die, which I'm now completely obsessed with! This is sized very similar to a mini slim card or you can use it as a focal point on an original slimline. 

I love all the detail and because it's so adorable dressed up with bows from the Ribbons + Wreaths stamp set and coordinating dies. I used a mini stencil mat to ink blend the insert pieces for the candy. From the ends inward, the ink colours are LagoonBlushTajine, and Rosewood.

To create the sentiment, I used the Oh Hi stamp set and must-have coordinating dies, which gives you so many options for creating this sentiment. The 'sweets' word is from the A Note of Hand stamp set and the little heart is from the Sweater Weather stamp set.

I hope you were inspired by these products from Pigment Craft! Please continue reading to discover additional giveaways, gifts with purchase, new Canadian shops and a ton of crafty inspiration from my fellow Canadian YouTubers.
