Season's Givings Blog Hop

Hi everyone, and happy 2015! Welcome to the Season's Givings Blog Hop!


Latisha Yoast came up with a great idea to share our new/unused crafty supplies--to have a blog hop and give the supplies away to people hopping. I love this idea!

I'm so thankful for the blogging community. I know everyone is busy, and it means a lot to me that people take the time to stop by. I wanted to do the giveaways as a thank you!

Here is a card I made for the new year:

Celebrate

This month, Winnie & Walter is celebrating their first anniversary, and they're hosting a month-long birthday bash. Part of the celebration includes several challenges (they'll go live at 7am CT 1/1). I'm joining in the fun and playing along with Laura's challenge. If you get a chance, check them out (the prizes are huge!).

For my card, I used The Big, the Bold, and the Extras stamp set and matching cut files from Winnie & Walter.  I did some two- and three-step stamping for the flowers and layered them over some Maggie Holmes vellum flowers. The leaves were die-cut using the cutting files. I was very inspired by THIS gorgeous card.

Here's a close-up:

Celebrate

I'm also linking this card up to the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge. There's still time to link up.

I've been fortunate enough to receive or win some extra supplies, and I'm thrilled to be passing them on! I have two giveaways for two winners. If you enter once, you're entered into both:


[Click on picture to enlarge.] Giveaway 1: Mama Elephant, Avery Elle, and Imaginisce stamps; Crate Paper embossing folder, 6x6 pad, two sets of stickers from the same collection; Pink Paislee washi; Studio Calico sequins; ColorBox Cat's Eye.



[Click on picture to enlarge.] Giveaway 2: Fancy Pants 12x12 papers, stickers, die-cuts, felt flowers, buttons, and clips; KI Memories stamps; Glitz Design washi; Studio Calico ink pad. 


Here's the scoop: 1) You can leave a comment for a chance to win. 2) For a second chance, you can "follow" my blog and leave another comment to let me know if you already follow or are a new follower. You can follow my blog by clicking Google's "Join this Site" on the sidebar and/or following by e-mail.

The giveaway will end at 6am ET on 1/7, and I'll announce winners here. Also, I'm happy to pay for international shipping.

The people/companies below are all offering different giveaways. To enter, all you have to do is go to their blogs, leave comments, and you'll be entered:

Jocelyn Olson <-- You are here

Next in the hop is the super talented Julee!
