Happy new year! I’m so happy you’re here. What could be better than starting off the year together as a community celebrating a brand new year of inspiration and creativity! I have a few things to share today and I hope you make yourself at home! This blog hop is an opportunity for some of us in the papercrafting world to say THANK YOU and to share a little something to inspire you to keep on creating!
If you’ve been stopping by during the past couple of years you know that this month I always celebrate my blog anniversary! So to make the occasion even more special I like to merge it together with the amazing Season’s Giving Blog Hop. So whether you’re here thanks to the blog hop or my newsletter directly, welcome. (smile)
I thought it’d be a nice idea to share 12 of my most popular projects -including tutorials- of 2017. These were all readers’ favorites. I have a few favorites myself that are not included here, that are close to my heart for one reason or another… As a designer I’ve found that my creative process is very spontaneous and every project usually expands my personal taste towards something new. This was especially true this past year, in which I felt very technique driven. I tried out so many different media and I even started Art Journaling, including Bible Journaling, something I had been flirting with for a while. It will forever be an ongoing process for me, I feel, because I truly love paper and everything that has to do with it.
Behind the scenes I’ve spent a lot of time working on images for my stamp collection, both digital and rubber with Unity Stamp Company. Yes, it was a very productive year and I am very thankful for all the opportunities I’ve been given and for all the wonderful friends I’ve met along the way!
Without further ado, let’s jump into our giveaway for today! One lucky follower will win a $50 gift card to my stamp shop! This gift card is applicable towards anything and everything on the shop, paper packs included! For a chance to win all I ask is that you (1) follow this blog (entering your email on sidebar) and immediately after confirm the subscription email. Please also (2) leave me a comment below letting me know that you’ve subscribed! That way we’ll stay connected throughout the year and you’ll be in the know of any new giveaways, coupons and freebies too! Winner will be announced on January 15th, so stay tuned!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I wish you lots of creativity on 2018! May all your crafty wishlist be delivered to your doorstep and may you find the time to create more! (smile)
