{Special Event} Hey Love Blog Hop & Linky Party with the STAMPlorations Girls + FREE Love/Spring-Themed Digital Stamps!

Hello, STAMPlorations friends! Are you ready for another round of love fest, STAMPlorations style? Just like last year, the STAMPgirls are serving up some wonderful love-filled projects to inspire you and get you in the mood for some Valentine's day crafting. In addition to the 2 new free love/spring themed digital stamps we're making available to everyone (download link towards the end of this post), we've got a blog hop and linky party that we hope you'll join!

There are 2 parts to this fun event:
  1. a blog hop with 10 stops (including this blog) where you can leave comments; and
  2. linky party for linking up your love-themed projects -- you're free to use non-STAMPlorations products but if you do use our products (stamps, stencils, dies, coloring pages), you get a shot at the bigger prizes + we've got 2 free digital stamps you can download and use. 
As for the prizes...we've got plenty in the form of stampsgift codes, and gift certificates(For an explanation of the difference between gift codes and gift certificates, click here.)

Hop prizes:
  • THREE (3) winners randomly drawn from all comments left on the STAMPlorations blog and participating designers' blogs will each receive their choice of TYPOGRAFIA Romantique stamp.

Hey, Love Linky Party prizes:
  • FIVE (5) randomly drawn players will each receive a $10 gift code; however, a randomly drawn player who has used a STAMPlorations product in her project will receive a $15 gift certificate instead.
  • ONE (1) randomly drawn player who uses any of the 2 new digi stamps in her entry will receive a $25 gift code.

The hop and linky are open until the February 8 so you can take your time hopping and linking up :o) We'll announce the winners on February 10 in the January winners post. Follow our blog so you don't miss any of our posts.

Let's get on with the love hop, shall we? (If a participating designer's love hop post appears to be missing, it may be that she has not posted hers yet. Please check back on her post later.)

  1. Thank you for the new challenge and hop - such lovely work by the DT - have a blessed week!

  2. A Note: I am getting a warning when I click on the link for Sanna Lipperts blog - I did a search on Internet and get the same warning - I went back to other postings and I get the same warning - so I am not sure what is going on - it is reading it is not safe and can steal information - I would like to comment here - Sanna L your four card creations are very beautiful colored and inspiring - TFS and for the hop

    1. Hi, Gail. It looks like her host or domain name provider hasn't set her domain to use https:// (secure) and it is still set at http:// (not secure -- which used to be standard). I just removed the "s" in https: and proceeded to her site (despite the is generally safe).

  3. Thanks for the free download. Also I did not comment at Sanna's blog as I got a warning of a Privacy issue which could mean I would be subject to easy stealing of my information. But I loved her work and I wish things had been different so I could have told her.

  4. Thank you so much for the fun free digis! I will be sure to play along! Gorgeous DESIGNS by all the DTs... I couldn't get into Sanna's Blog :(

  5. These are such LOVEly digis, Shery. Thank you for sharing them with us.

    I am hopping along and it's hard to say whether or not my comment on Sanna's beautiful projects worked or not. I can't read Austrian to know for sure...hmmm... :) I just love all her color variations on her cards.
    I also can't tell if my comment posted on Helen's blog. There was nothing that indicated comments are moderated before showing up. I love the shimmer on her lovely card!!

    Thank you for a beautiful hop! I am looking fwd to trying out the digis!!!

  6. I tried 3 time to put in the code to download and I get a failed notice.

    1. Terrie, I don't understand what you mean by putting in the code to download. There is no code to put in to download the file. You will receive an email with the download link. You click on that link and you should be given a prompt asking you where you want to download it to your computer. It is a zip file so after downloading, you go to the folder where you saved the file and then double-click to unzip.

    2. Hi again, Shery. Just saw your note to Terrie. There was a code that got emailed separately that you had to enter to download the file. It was a bit confusing but in the end it worked. I figured it was a new security measure.

  7. What a great theme for this time of year!! I've already started on my Valentine's Day cards, but still have a bunch to make. Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. I must say the creation by the Dts are beautiful and very inspiring. I only have difficulty with Sanna's blog. I received a message when I tried to visit her blog. Otherswise, I would like to say I an done hopping and commenting. Sanna, if you read this, your creation is lovely.
    Thank you.

  9. I can't wait to join in. Thanks so much for the freebies. You are always so generous and the DT is inspiring.

  10. Thanks again for the two gorgeous pages, Shery! I couldn't wait to get colouring! I'll be linking up my cards soon! I just finished the hop and I am feeling inspired. Your STAMPgirls did a beautiful job! I enjoyed the hop and the inspiration, thank you! Have a great weekend!

  11. I enjoyed hoping along and seeing amazing creations the designers made using the coloring pages, I am inspired to use it. Hopefully I get some time to color them up and make a card.

  12. I could not comment on Sanna's blog as it showed a warning, not safe.

  13. Very pretty creations. I hope I have time to participate.

  14. Thanks for the lovely images! I will be hopping along~
