[NOW CLOSED – CHECK THE WINNERS ROSTER TO SEE WHO WON!]

Hello and welcome to the Pay It Forward Prize Hop!! My crafty friends and I are collaborating together to bring you this fun hop where you can win prizes! I will give you all of the details of the Prize Hop giveaway at the end of this post – but first, I will briefly cover a few details about my project!

The theme for this hop is a Red, White & Blue paper craft… so I made an Americana gift card holder that’s perfect for guys and gals, alike! If you have a Cricut machine, you can easily cut the box base out using Box 1 on the Fancy Boxes cartridge. If not, I have provided a template for you that you may print and cut out, by hand.

Can You REALLY Win Craft Giveaways??

Can You REALLY Win Craft Giveaways__

Do you ever enter craft giveaways in hopes of winning free goodies? Have you ever won a craft giveaway? I must admit, I haven’t won many – but I have won some! I think part of the key to winning is persistence. You may enter 50+ giveaways before you will win one. To some, the odds just aren’t worth it – but to others, it’s worth a shot! If you want to learn more – just keep reading. 🙂

Where To Find Craft Giveaways

There are many ways to find current craft giveaways online. You can usually find quite a few on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and blogs. I have searched the Internet for you and have conveniently placed them all in one place. You can visit my Giveaways & More page to see current giveaways all year long!

However, I am sure that you can find many more than what I have listed. I would recommend searching for YouTube craft channels that are doing video hops or blog hops. Also, I have found many flash giveaways on Instagram. Subscribe to craft companies, small craft blogs, and crafty YouTube channels to learn about new giveaways as they are posted.

P.S. When I reach certain goals on this blog and YouTube channel, I will also host giveaways. See previous winners HERE. Please be sure to follow me on social media so you don’t miss out. All of my links can be found under the Info tab on this blog.

Giveaways I’ve Won

Just to let you know that craft giveaways CAN be won, I have some screenshots below of a few which I’ve won (I have hidden personal info and/or other people’s names for privacy reasons). Obviously, the less entrants, the better your chances. But I have been shocked to have won craft giveaways where there were nearly 2,000 entries… and I’m NOT a naturally lucky person, haha!! I do not always enter giveaways so my winnings are minimal. I hope I haven’t forgotten any – but the ones I recall winning so far are:

↑ A giveaway I won from Kraftgali.com on Instagram.

Untitled design(1)

↑ A giveaway I won from Factory Direct Craft on Facebook.

Untitled design(2)

↑ A giveaway I won from Adayfordaisies.com on YouTube.

I do not have screenshots for all the giveaways I have won, but I won a giveaway from Vicky Papaioannou over at Clips-n-cuts.com. I have also won digital images from smaller craft blogs/individuals and YouTube channels.

So yes, you can win craft giveaways – but it will definitely take persistence. Hoping you win some goodies soon!! Oh, and don’t forget to check out my Giveaways & More page!

Life Update & Giveaway!!

Life UpdateHey everyone… it’s Maranda, here! I wanted to give a quick life update/YouTube channel update today. Also, I am having a giveaway – woohoo!! All of the details will be at the end of this post, so if you don’t want to read my novel then you can just scroll down. 😉

So, a brief life update…

As some of you may know, I deal with chronic internal health issues (nothing contagious). Some days are better than others. I look relatively healthy on the outside – which is why I guess it’s called an “invisible illness”. I give more details in my video posted below – but suffice it to say that these ongoing health issues are causing me severe fatigue and have also posed other challenges for me in my day to day life. That is why my YouTube channel only gets about one video posting per month. Eeks!!

This blog also averages about 1-2 posts per month, as well. For some of you, that may not be a big issue – but I know others like to see posts or videos more often. I will say that I do post weekly on my Instagram, so that may be a good place to find me as well.

As I stated in my Life Update video below, I am trying various lifestyle changes and medical/natural treatments to try to ease some of my symptoms and fatigue; however, it’s just trial and error as nothing is guaranteed to help. I don’t say any of this for pity whatsoever; I simply want to update my loyal blog and YouTube subscribers and ask that you stick with me even though my posts are somewhat scarce as compared to others. But it’s all good – and I’m so blessed to be a part of the crafting community!!

So yada, yada, yada… enough of that! Now on to the fun part, the GIVEAWAY!! 🙂

3 Easy Peasy Giveaway Rules:

1.) Subscribe to my YouTube channel HERE, if you haven’t already.

2.) Be a Follower of this blog, if you’re not already.

3.) You must leave a comment under my Life Update & Giveaway VIDEO (posted below) letting me know you want to enter the Giveaway.

*Note: The giveaway is open internationally to anyone 18 years of age or older. The giveaway runs October 3, 2017 – October 17, 2017. So, hurry and enter!
