3rd GIVING THANKS Blog Hop & Wishlist Linky Party with the STAMPlorations Girls and Friends

This post will remain at the top of the blog until November 30.

Hello, STAMPlorations friends! Today is a very special day at the STAMPlorations HQ, as 35 designers come together to express how grateful and thankful we are through the projects we are sharing today.

As I wrote in yesterday's post, 8 incredibly talented guest designers are joining us. They represent the challenge blogs that gave STAMPlorations an opportunity to reach many, many crafters through sponsorship for the past year or so.  These ladies, as well as 26 STAMPlorations girls, took time out of their busy day for this hop -- and I am SO very grateful to every one of them!

There are 2 parts to this event:

  1. a blog hop with 36 stops (including this blog) where you can leave a little word of encouragement and thanks to the designers; and
  2. a wishlist linky party where you can link up your wishlist, as well as up to 3 projects you create that express how thankful and/or grateful you are. 
The hop and linky are open until the end of the month so you can take your time hopping and linking up :o)

For their projects, the participating designers used 11 new stamp sets designed particularly for this hop: three 4x6 sets (Thankful & Blessed, Wonderfall Time, and Words of Gratitude) and 8 Typografia: Thankful stamps (Full of Thanksgiving, Giving, Gratitude is the Blossom, Something to be Thankful for, Thankful People, Thy Goodness, Unknown Blessings, and We Have Enough).




And we have lots of prizes we'll be giving away to some lucky hop and wishlist linky party participants.

Prizes for those who hop:

Prizes for those who link up to the STAMPlorations Wishlist Linky Party:
  • TWO (2) randomly drawn winners will each receive products in their wishlist (up to $40 MSRP)

The BIG Extra Prize:
  • Hop participants who comment on all 36 stops in the hop will be entered in a drawing and one winner will win a $50 gift certificate to the store.

Winners will be announced on December 10 in the November Challenges and Blog Hops winners post. So that you don't miss that post, please follow our blog or sign up for email updates.

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 Wishlist Linky Party.
  • Create your wishlist in the STAMPlorations store and enter your wishlist link to the linky below. Instructions for creating your wishlist can be found here.)
  • To increase your chances of winning, you may link up a maximum of 3 separate projects (card, tag, journal page, layout, ATC, etc.) with a THANKFUL/GRATITUDE theme.
  • You may link up a project you have posted already on your blog, as long as it was posted this month (November).
  • In order to qualify for the prizes, you must link back to this post OR this post (either link back is acceptable) AND display our event graphic (it's the graphic found at the very top) AND share your wishlist link in your blog post(s).
  • Use any product(s) you have; STAMPlorations products are not required.
  • Link up by Thursday, November 30, 11:55 p.m. Pacific (GMT-8). 

And lastly, stamps, stencils, and dies are 40% off* until November 30. Use code BIGTHANKS on checkout. All orders of up to $39 ship worldwide for a flat rate of $5; orders of $40 or more get free worldwide shipping.

(*Excludes products in the New Release and Retiring sections; code for 40% off can be used only once per customer/shipping address and cannot be combined with other coupon codes due to the magnitude of the sale.)

Thank you so much for celebrating our 3rd Annual Giving Thanks Blog Hop and Wishlist 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)
