welcome to the Save the Crafty YouTuber Video Hop Event! I am hosting this event with over 55 videomakers that have come together to help out some of the crafters just starting to make videos. YouTube has changed some rules about who is allowed to earn money from their channels and many are at risk so I put together a hop with plenty of prizes to help increase views and subscribers before the end of February (the deadline). For more information about the hop and prizes, check out the end of my post.
Be sure to leave a comment on my VIDEO, not here on my blog (unless you want to, of course) in order to be eligible to win a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp (Worldwide), 2 inks from Catherine Pooler (USA only), or a Creativation pack filled with products not released yet (Worldwide)! More prize information below (120+ prizes!!!)
I created these three cards using the Hearts Turnabout Stamp and Monogram (J/L) Stamps from Concord and 9th (C9 / SSS ). Turnabout stamps are a really fun way to make your own backgrounds and Monogram stamps are a great way to personalize your cards. They also include general sentiments so you can use them for different occasions.
I personally bought the J and L Monogram stamps (C9 / SSS) since my name is Justine and my significant other's name starts with an L. Each monogram comes with a different array of flowers and leaves to decorate the inside of the letters. The coordinating dies (C9 / SSS) allow you to cut the letter out with or without a border. To make the background a little more exciting, I embossed one of the stamp turns in silver.
These monograms make wonderful clean and simple cards as well. naturally you can stamp in any colour and personalize them as you wish. The coordinating dies also allow you to cut out the flowers so you can add some dimension. On this particular card, I stamped with Catherine Pooler's Spa Collection, which has much more subtle colours than the Party Collection that I used on the other cards and backgrounds. Colours: Peppermint Scrub, Sugared Lavender and Spruce (coming soon!).
This last card features the background stamped out in four different colours: Sweet Sixteen, It's a Girl, Party Dress and Pixie Dust. It's perfect for Valentine's Day!
(If you are inspired by my videos or blogs, please shop through the links. I make a small commission at no cost to you that helps support my blog, channel and future giveaways.
Why: There are many new cardmakers out there that are trying to get their name out. They are also unable to earn money from their channels unless they receive 4000 hours and at least 1000 subscribers by the end of February. I put together this hop with some of my friends to help bring them more viewers and potentially new subscribers. You might find your next favourite YouTuber!
Requirements: Watch as many videos as you like from the list below, leave a comment and subscribe. No, you don't need to watch them all but you are welcome to! The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win!
Prizes: There are over 120 prizes being given away between all the videos. Winners will be announced HERE on Monday, February 26th. You will have until March 10th to claim your prize. You need to comment on a video to be eligible for the giveaway on that channel. Several other prizes will be given away randomly on various videos as well.
