Blog Hops, Giveaways, and Sales- Oh My!

I've noticed lately that while trying to promote my own blog giveaway, that there are MANY blogs out there with awesome giveaways of their own! It seems that along with entering card challenges, there is an array of ways one can win some free swag so I decided to try and compile a list of them. Along with that, I also wanted to promote some exciting blog hops that are coming up! So let's take a look, shall we?

Blog Hops

Ms. Heather Lynn from Random Recipes, Paper Crafts and Photos will be hosting an owl themed blog hop (the name of it is "Well Owl Be" haha so cute!) on June 22nd. Each project promises to showcase her love for Owls so I am certainly looking forward to seeing the kinds of fun creations that come out of it!

Getting Cricky with K Andrew is having their monthly blog hop and the theme is "Get Wild". It begins Friday June 15th and runs throughout the weekend. They will also be featuring projects from their favorite kiddo designers so that sounds fun!


My friend Jessica over at Craftin' and Stampin' is having a HUGE giveaway when she reaches 250 followers. (as of right now, she has 243. So close!!) Her stash includes the following: 

 1 Roll of Red Poly Mesh (to make your own wreath!)

1 Butterfly Board Book

2 Rolls of Ribbon

1 package of decorative paper tape

1 Package of 6x6 paper

1 Package of coordinating tags and labels for paper

2 packages of brads

1 package of square rivets

1 package of curling tags

1 package of Heidi Grace Stamps

3 small packages of misc. stamps

2 Stampin' Up rolling stamps

AND for the GRAND PRIZE in the package A YUDU CARD SHOP!!

 That's a lot of stuff! You'll be able to see all the details by clicking here to her blog.

My Hoppy Place is celebrating their one year blogiversary with a fun giveaway! She is waiting until she hits 200 followers (as of right now, she has 175!) and then she'll randomly be giving away your choice of either a Michael's, JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby $25 giftcard! Swanky gift! Make sure you click here for the details on how to win!

Nadia from Just My Scrapping World is having a HUGE giveaway for her birthday! She is giving away 5 FULL boxes of stuff to 5 lucky winners! Very generous! Make sure you check it out and find out the details to enter. BONUS: She is offering to ship to wherever in the world on her! Fairy Craftmother? Yes, I think so.


Paper Piecings by Nikki is having a huge summer sale where you could get 45% off every purchase!! Just use the code "summersale" at check out. This will last until August 31st 2012. I recently bought her Disney inspired Clubhouse Friends set and I absolutely adore it! Check out the site!

Sometimes, I feel like I'm always the last to find out about sales and things of that nature, but I recently found Amy and her blog Scrap This, Save That and I let out a relieved sigh knowing I wouldn't have to look far for some great sales. Amy loves two things: Scrapbooking and Couponing.  Now I enjoy one but know nothing about the other. That's where she comes in. On her blog she showcases all kinds of sales and great giveaways so I highly suggest you keep this site on top of your list!!

Whew, got all that? It's all I have for now, but I'll be keeping my eyes open for more great stuff! And while you look at these great giveaways and sales, why don't you take a gander at mine? =)

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

You Did It!

Many of my friends have graduated this past May and while I would have liked to create cards for them all, I really only made one. My boyfriend's sister Michelle (yes, she has the same name. Rather convenient for him, I guess?) graduated from SUNY Albany and I made this card for her party-


I took plain black card stock for the left and used one of my handy Martha Stewart punchers on the side. The other side came from a Recollections paper pad I own that has many sparkly, fun sheets in it. GRAD is actually sparkly chipboard, though you can't really tell from the picture. Lastly, I bought some Jolee embellishments at Michael's because I was afraid I wasn't going to have time to create my own. To make the hats pop out a bit, I mounted them on silver, sparkly paper. (I'm a fan of sparkles, can you tell??)

I'm entering this card in the Cricut Cardz Challenge #109 where there are already some pretty amazing projects up! If you have a graduation card you've made, then make sure you enter too!

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Dreams Come True

As most of you know, I'm currently a grad student working towards my Masters in secondary education. I met my friend Risa because we were in a lot of the same classes. Most recently, we dealt with thesis stress together and all the while, Risa had been planning her wedding! I vaguely remember making her an engagement card awhile ago, but I wanted to make her a nicer wedding card. This is what I came up with-

 I was really excited to use my new Bridal Shower cartridge for the dress along with some fun sparkly cardstock paper. I used a Martha Stewart paper puncher for the sides (trying to make it look "elegant"). The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs stamp set, Of Mice and Lil Men. I just got it and I feel like I'm going to be using it for many many more projects to come.

So I hope you liked the card and make sure you check out my Michael's giveaway!

Until next time, happy crafting, folks!

To enter, simply fill out the entries on Rafflecopter below. The end date for this is July 10th, so it will last a month exactly.

These are the ways to enter--

  1. Follow me! (If I do not follow you, please leave a comment with your url so I can)
  2. Mention this giveaway on your blog. Even if it's just a line at the end of one of your entries. Be sure to leave the link of this in a comment below.
  3. Put my button on your sidebar. (Again, if I don't have yours, let me know!)
  4. Leave a comment telling me what you would purchase with this card so that I have an idea of what to get for my next giveaway. Don't forget to leave your contact info or Blog URL.
