2nd GIVING THANKS Blog Hop & Linky Party with the STAMPlorations Girls and Friends



Hello, STAMPlorations friends! Today is a very special day at the STAMPlorations HQ, as 38 designers come together to express how grateful and thankful we are through the projects we are sharing today.

As I wrote in Monday's post, 15 incredibly talented guest designers are joining us. They represent the challenge blogs and events that gave STAMPlorations an opportunity to reach many, many crafters through sponsorship over the past couple of years. These ladies, as well as the 22 STAMPlorations girls, took time out of their busy day for this hop -- and I am SO very grateful to them!

There are 2 parts to this event: (1) a blog hop with 39 stops (including this blog) where you can leave a little word of encouragement and thanks to the designers and (2) a linky party where you can link up any project you create that expresses how thankful, grateful, and/or blessed you are. The hop and linky are open until the end of the month so you can take your time hopping and linking up your projects :o)

For their projects, the participating designers used 3 new bundles I designed especially for this hop: Many BlessingsOh So Grateful, and Be Thankful. Each bundle consists of a 4x6 stamp set, coordinating die for the image, a coordinating word die, and a stencil. (These bundles are available in the store at a special price.)



    


And we have 9 prizes we'll be giving away to 9 lucky hop and linky party participants. 

Prizes for those who hop:
  • ONE (1) winner randomly drawn from all comments left on the STAMPlorations blog and participating designers blogs will receive a $50 gift certificate
  • THREE (3) winners randomly drawn from all comments left on the STAMPlorations blog and participating designers blogs will each receive a $20 gift certificate to the shop. 
  • ONE (1) commenter randomly drawn from our Facebook page will win a $15 gift certificate for herself and a $15 gift certificate for one friend she tags in her comment. 
  • ONE (1) commenter randomly drawn from our Instagram account will win her choice of Giving Thanks bundle (Be Thankful, Oh So Grateful, or Many Blessings)

Prizes for those who link up projects with a "Thankful" or "Grateful" theme:

Winners will be announced on December 9 in the November Challenges and Blog Hops winners post. So you don't miss that post, please follow our blog or sign up for email updates.

So let's get on with the hop, shall we? (If a participating designer's Giving Thanks hop post appears to be missing, it may be that she has not posted hers yet. We will be updating the links as the posts go live.)
***

And now for the Giving Thanks Linky Party...we'd love for you to create and share your "Thankful" and/or "Grateful" projects.
  • Link up a new project (card, tag, journal page, layout, ATC, etc.) with a "Thankful" or "Grateful" theme.
  • You may link up a project you have posted already, as long as it was posted this month (November).
  • In order to qualify for the prizes, you must display our event graphic in your post and link back to this post. It's the graphic found at the very top.
  • You may link up as many projects as you want, but each project must be in its own post (1 project = 1 blog post) 
  • Use any product(s) you have; STAMPlorations products are not required.
  • Link up by Wednesday, November 30, 11:55 p.m. Pacific (GMT-8). 



***


And lastly, select stamps, stencils, and dies are 35% off* from November 16 to 30. Plus, all orders of $25 or more automatically get free worldwide shipping

 (*Excludes stamps and dies in the New Release and STAMP Lab sections; coupon code for 35% off can be used only once per customer and cannot be combined with other coupon codes due to the magnitude of the sale.)





Thank you so much for celebrating the 2nd Giving Thanks Blog Hop and Linky Party with us! To all our friends in the US, we wish you a happy Thanksgiving. To all our friends who live outside the US, we hope you have a wonderful time this coming holiday season. May we all live a life of gratitude :o)


With thanks and much love,
