Blog "Open House" Giveaway: Make it Market Post & Parcel

In celebration of my blog launch I'm hosting a virtual "open house" here at Hearstrings & Inky Things during October. I am so grateful to finally have the opportunity to share the joy of creating with others and I'd like to give a heartfelt thank you to the readers who encouraged me and made it happen!

Visitors who sign up for my email list between now and October 31st will have a chance to win one of Betsy Veldman's new Make it Market Post & Parcel Holiday Kit package, to include the Post & Parcel Main Kit, the Trimmings Kit and the Gift Card Envelope die and paper from Papertrey Ink... a $174 value! The lucky winner will be announced on my blog November 1st.

Additionally, I'm going to start a tradition of giving away a brand new stamp & die set each month called the "Crafty Comments Contest." To qualify, just comment on my posts throughout the month. The October 2016 Crafty Comments winner will receive a Papertrey Ink "Holiday Greens" stamp and die set. I used this set to make the lovely green gift tag featured in my very first blog post. I can't wait to get to know you all of you and share my joy of crafting with you!
