Seasons Givings Bloghop - 2015 In Review


Happy New Year, crafty friends! 2015 has come to a close and it's time for a fresh new start. Time to pursue those crafty dreams in earnest, whether it be making a card every week, or every day, participating in challenges, starting a YouTube Channel, or wherever your heart is leading you.

Today I'm thrilled to be taking part once again in the Season's Givings Blog Hop, where every single one of us will be hosting a giveaway in gratitude for another wonderful year of love and support in the crafting community. Stay tuned to the end of the post for my giveaway details.

But first, I want to share with you my Top 15 cards of 2015. Many of these were also featured as videos on my YouTube Channel. If you're not a blog follower or a subscriber already, I'd love for you to become one!


















Now for my giveaway. For 2016 I am challenging myself to shop my stash more often, use what I have, or pass it on to someone else who can use it. So that's exactly what I'm doing today. I'm giving away two BRAND NEW, never used stamp sets and one new die set from Mama Elephant. The set on the left is Around We Go and includes the matching dies, the other is called On Target. Both are absolutely perfect for Valentines Day, anniversaries, or just love cards in general.


To Enter:
leave me a comment (including a way to contact you) on this post by Friday January 8th at 11:59 PM EST. I'll draw a winner on Saturday.

And again, if you'd like to follow my blog or YouTube channel, well, let's just say it won't hurt your chances. ;)


Below is the full link of hop participants. Make sure to leave comments at every stop along the way! Thanks for stopping by, and have a fantastically creative 2016!
