{DAY 1} Love TAGplorations Blog Hop and Linky Party!

Hey, stamping friends! Welcome to another edition of TAGplorations! Because it's the love month, we're doing Love TAGplorations! It's a blog hop and linky party with plenty of inspiration and prizes to boot! For this hop, the STAMPlorations girls made projects with a love theme (romantic, familial, philia/friendship) and with tags in them.

Every day starting today and up until Valentine's day, you'll be in for a sweet treat! We've got projects ranging from clean and simple to mixed media, and everything in between! If there's one thing I can say about the STAMPlorations's that they don't hold anything back when it comes to creating their projects! 

Then after hopping through the participating designers' blogs today, we'd like you to create your own love or Valentine's day themed project or two and link up for a chance to win the prizes we have up for grabs. You can create any project you want -- tag, card, ATC, art journal page, page layout, bookmark, home decor, canvas, whatever -- as long as it fits our theme (love/Valentine's Day) and has a tag in it (no matter how big or small).

Commenting and linking up is from today until Tuesday, February 14, 11:55 p.m. Pacific. We'll announce the winners on March 10 in the February Challenges & Hops winners post so be sure to follow our blog if you aren't already.

Anyway, take a look at the prizes:
  • THREE (3) randomly drawn winners from all comments left on this post and participating designers blog will each receive a $10 gift certificate to the store
  • ONE (1) randomly drawn participant to the Love TAGplorations linky party will receive her choice of stamp set (Pocket Blooms, A Full Heart, or Two of Us)
  • ONE (1) randomly drawn participant to the Love TAGplorations linky party will receive her choice of any 2 of the new love-themed dies (Love, Always, XOXO, Forever, You & Me, Clustered Hearts)*
  • ONE (1) randomly drawn participant in the Love TAGplorations linky party will receive her choice of tag dies set: Luggage Tags or ATC/Tag Builder
...and I may just throw in a couple of surprise prizes, especially if there are entries that catch my attention :o)

*If winner already owns the product/s offered as her prize, she may substitute a different product of equal or lesser value.


Now have a look at the projects the STAMPlorations girls made and be inspired!
