3 GIVEAWAYS!!! Happy Christmas!! Two months early!







{OOPS I forgot to mention the brand of stamps - UmWow Studios!}

Hello everyone!  I have Christmas on the brain already which reminded me that is't been a long while since I had a GIVEAWAY!!  We have had a postal strike here in South Africa for months now - HIGHLY annoying!  So I have halted any plans of sending anything anywhere & haven't had an easy time getting hold of new product either BUT I am hoping by the time this giveaway ends the strike will be over & THREE LUCKY DUCKS will be able to receive these Christmas goodies from me!!



As you will see if you read the text on the photos there are 3 giveaways to win, one for everyone, one for locals & one for Internationals, so more than a fair chance for everyone!  I love blogging SO much but I am truly SO busy in my day to day life that I have had to let my commenting slide.  It has nothing to do with not being inspired by others - I constantly AM & do my best to browse ''Paper People" , Facebook & Blog Loving but most of the time through my phone where leaving a comment is not so easy.  So this is really to say THANK YOU for sticking with me!!


GIVEAWAY RULES

1. Closing date Friday 21st November {approximately one month from now}
Please remember to come back to check if you are a winner because if I 
do not hear from the winners within a week I will be selecting new ones.

hahaha! I just read Val's comment above and i'm still laughing! I'm somewhat of a stalker myself, hovering in the shadows, not always commenting as I should, but admiring your creativity from afar. I love your personal blog and adore Scrap Around the World (your baby) so please don't change... Just keep on inspiring us just the way you are! Thank you for your generosity and here's to hoping the postal strike ends soon! I follow you on here, bloglovin' and FB and I have shared your giveaway on my blog sidebar, in my giveaway tab (http://scrap-utopia.blogpsot.com) and on FB (https://www.facebook.com/nicole.doiron3?fref=nf)

Annie Claxton said...

Hi Helen, your blog is always an inspiration, I love how you are so happy to share your knowledge and ideas. If I could suggest anything at all it would be great to see more video tutorials but I realise they take ages to put together and you are a very busy lady! Don't worry about not always being able to leave comments, I'm sure everyone understands that there are only so many hours in the day! Another great giveaway, thanks so much for the chance to win :o)xxx

Jean Bullock said...

My dear, the only change that I would like to see on your blog posts is the headline, "Congratulations to Jean Bullock - You have won prize # 3!" LOL

I shared this post on Facebook, G+, and Twitter. Here is the tweet: https://twitter.com/giveawayjean/status/526058240761532417 Pretty sure I follow you in every way possible!

Brande Davison said...

Helen oh wow I wouldn't even know what to suggest for an improvement to the blog, I don't think I could - you blog is in inspiration for my own paper crafts. I appreciate how real your voice is in your writing, and just overall enjoy seeing the great things you are up to. Appreciate you asking for feedback, that's great. Fingers crossed the postal strike is over soon - for the postal workers of course and for your scrapbooking needs! :)

Lynette Jacobs said...

Lisca Meijer said...

Wow! Those are great giveaways! You are very generous.
I've been following your blog for a while now via Blogloving and I enjoy seeing what you've made for the different challenges, but most of all I love the tutorials. I learn a lot from them as I am a mixed media newbie. I realise that a lot of work goes into making a video tutorial but it's the best way of showing people how you do things and what the different pots of media and ink look like so that i know what to look for if I want to buy it.
I've shared on Facebook, I follow you on Google, Bloglovin and FB. I'll also try to remember to share this on my blog next time I post something (but I don't have as many followers as you...)
PS: I don't know why there isn't a Spanish flag on you flag counter (as I am in Spain).

Bernadine said...

Hel's I if their was an award for the person who did not comment on blogs. I would win hands down. I am terrible at commenting. :)

That said we "met" through your blog and your work is a huge inspiration to me.

Bernadine said...

I shared on Facebook and taged you on your personal page. I have no idea how to do it here. :)

arlsmom aka Lynda said...

I hope your postal service comes back soon. I've followed all the steps and shared on fb and my blog...stalk you all over as others have said they do too... thank you for the chance to win...

I must admit that I am a new follower thanks to Jean Bullock and I love everything I see, so I'd hate to make a recommendation. I sure hope your postal strike ends soon (& certainly in time for prize #3 to arrive to my home! LOL. But seriously how honored I would be to get something from South Africa) Thanks for such a generous give away and for a great blog. Woops almost forgot the link to my share on my FB account: https://www.facebook.com/kelly.sasman?fref=nf&pnref=story

Beatrice Lawson said...

Helen, I have been following your blog and of course SATW since its inception and love both. I personally happen to adore tutorials. I don't care if they are video or photo only format, I really like seeing the details of the creative process from someone who is so very amazing. I know I should comment more often and I wish there would be a feature in Bloglovin or other tool to let you know that readers actually CLICK and READ your post:-) Would be thrilled to win anything from your stash:-)
