7th GIVING THANKS Blog Hop and Giveaway with the STAMPlorations Girls


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

There are 2 parts to this event:
  1. a blog hop with 13 stops (including this blog) where you can leave a little word of encouragement and thanks to the designers; and
  2. a giveaway where you can complete one, a few, or all of the tasks for a shot at the prizes.
The hop and giveaway are open until December 8 so you can take your time hopping and linking up :o)

So let's talk about prizes...we've got a few.

Hop prizes:
  • FIVE (5) winners randomly drawn from all comments left on this post and designers' blogs (or IG accounts) will each receive a $10 prize code.

Giveaway prizes:
  • TWO (2) winners of their choice of STAMPlorations product up to $15 value
  • ONE (1) winner of a $40 prize code

Extra prizes:
  • A few surprise winners will be randomly drawn from all giveaway entries, social media engagements (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, blogs), and blog comments to win either prize codes or products.

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

Now let's get started with the hop, shall we?

Giving Thanks Hop


Giving Thanks Giveaway

Done hopping? Then it's time for the giveaway! You can enter up to 7 times for a chance at the prizes. For each task you complete, enter the corresponding URL to the linky below. For ease of tracking, use your name + task number when entering. For example: Shery #1 (for task #1), Shery #2 (for task #2), and so on. You do not have to do all 7 tasks -- just pick the ones you want or are able to do. The linky is open until Wednesday, December 8, 11:55 pm Pacific.

Task #1: Display the Giving Thanks graphic (you'll find it at the very top of this post) on your blog -- either on your side bar or by including the graphic in a blog post. Make sure you link back to this post; otherwise, your entry will not count. Once you've done that, enter your blog link or blog post permalink to the linky below. Your entry should be YOURNAME #1 (e.g., Shery #1).

Task #2: Share the Giving Thanks graphic on your Instagram account and tag @stamplorations. Also use the hashtag #stamplorationsgivingthanks2021. Once you've done that, enter the link to the Instagram post to the linky below. Your entry should be YOURNAME #2 (e.g., Shery #2).

Tasks #3, #4, #5, #6: Create up to 4 new projects with a gratitude or thankful theme and link them separately (so you get 4 entries). You can use non-STAMPlorations products, but we love seeing our products in projects entered in our challenges and events. (Plus I usually pick out winners of extra prizes from entries where our products were used.) You can link from your blog, Flickr, Instagram, Pinterest, SplitCoast, or Pinterest account. For bloggers, make sure you display the graphic and have a TEXT link back to this post. Link up your project(s) below. Your entries should be YOURNAME #3, YOURNAME #4, YOURNAME #5, and YOURNAME #6 (e.g., Shery #3 and all the way to Shery #6).

Task #7: Create a wishlist on My Wishlist. (It's free to register and you can create as many wishlists as you want for free.) Add at least 7 STAMPlorations products you would like to own. Once you've done that, add the link to your STAMPlorations wishlist below. Your entry should be YOURNAME #7 (e.g., Shery #7).

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
