Video Hop Birthday Party


Good morning! Today's my birthday and if that isn't enough of a reason to throw a party, I'm also celebrating recently hitting 1,000 YouTube Subscribers with a big video hop!


There are over 20 videos and lots of prizes, so I hope you'll check it out!
  • One comment from each video on the hop will be chosen to win 2 Catherine Pooler inks.
  • One comment from the whole hop will be chosen to win a $25 Gift Certificate to Ellen Hutson LLC.
  • One comment from the whole hop will be chosen to win a prize pack valued at over $100 from A Jillian Vance Design.
  • And because today is my birthday, I'm also contributing prizes - three $25 Gift Certificates - one to each of our three sponsors' stores, to three randomly-selected people who comment on my video.

Here's the video hop list - if you get lost along the way, you can easily come back here to get the links you need:

Catherine Pooler 


I've also made a video playlist so you can easily follow along - click on the Playlist tab on my YouTube Channel.


All prizes will be announced on Monday, June, 11 so you have until then to comment.

Here's the link to my video so pop over and start the hop!

I've now been through everyone on the hop and found a few new-to-me card artists who create in the style(s) I like most for inspiration... I struggle with card design, so many thanks!

I really love what you created and it’s inspirational for me as a passionate crafted and an art therapist volunteering twice a week at my local battered women’s shelter and I have a group of women and their children who participate and heal from this outlet. I’d be thrilled to win the giveaway.

I love the projects you create, you’re talented.
