The Refresh Your Craft & Soul Welcome & Grand Giveaway!

Hello and welcome to the start of my FREE blog event! It’s time to Refresh Your Craft & Soul!

Refresh Your Craft & Soul Online Event at Jennifer Grace Creates

If you haven’t heard about this event before, then here are the details: This weekend (6th – 8th June 2014) from 4pm – 10pm Friday and 10am – 10pm Saturday and Sunday (BST) there will be posts going live EVERY HOUR! There will be lots of crafts, tutorials, challenges, tips, a blog hop, and of course some lovely giveaways  {Giveaways NOW CLOSED – challenges still open}!

The theme for the event is loosely based on my word for the year ‘Cleanse’. However, ‘Refresh Your Craft & Soul’ will expand to include a variety of ideas, including water themes (rain, sea, rivers, drinks, watercolour paints, water activities), fresh air and outdoors, trying new things, simplifying clutter, clean and simple projects, being healthy, letting go of worries, etc!

The giveaways will close on Monday the 9th of June at 10.59pm BST, but the challenges will have prizes too, and those will stay open for entries until the following Sunday (15th June) so there’s time to play along with those even if you’re not about for the actual event!

Let’s kick things off with The Grand Giveaway {NOW CLOSED} :

Refresh Your Craft and Soul Giveaway at Jennifer Grace Creates

One lucky person will receive this prize package which includes:

6 Sheets of Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine Paper

Hello Sunshine Puffy Stickers, Label Stickers, and half a pack of Pocket Cards

6 Sheets of Elle’s Studio Everyday Moments Paper

Everyday Moments Bits & Pieces

My Mind’s Eye Just Splendid 6×6 Pad, 8×10 Word Art Pack, Wood Dots, and a sampler of the Decorative Tape

Plus a few sequins for a bit of shimmer!

So how do you get the chance to win these goodies? By commenting! You could just leave a comment on this post – that will give you one entry into the draw. But every comment on any post that goes live this weekend will count as another entry into the draw!

You will only be entered into the Grand Giveaway if you have commented on this welcome post. That way if you don’t want to win the prize – maybe you already own all these goodies (?!) – then don’t comment here, but you can still comment on all the other posts this weekend (including all the other giveaways) without being entered.

To tempt you to enter, and show you what can be done with some of the items in the prize pack, here’s a tag I made using the same supplies:

Big Smiles Tag by Jennifer Grace

I layered up a Hello Sunshine Pocket Card and puffy stickers, with a couple of tags from the Everyday Moments Bits & Pieces, and some Just Splendid Decorative Tape. Plus a few gems of course!

You could leave it just like this to use on a scrapbook page or pocket album, but if you are going to put it on a gift to brighten someone’s day you can punch a hole in one corner and add some twine:

Big Smiles Tag by Jennifer Grace

I added one lot of twine to attach it to the gift, then tied a twine bow on top too!

Be Inspired:

Use a pocket card as the base for a tag

Combine two happy phrases to brighten someone’s day

Finish off with a twine bow

Don’t forget to comment here to be entered into the Grand Giveaway  {NOW CLOSED}! The giveaway is open internationally, and it will close at 10.59pm (BST) on Monday the 9th of June.

I see you again at 5pm! Are you excited that the event has started?!

P.S. Remember there were some free ‘Refresh’ files to download in my previous post HERE if you want them!

I picked up a graduation gift & a gift bag while I was out shopping & now I’m inspired to pull out a pocket card & make the tag for it. Thanks for the inspiration already! :>)

    Good morning Jennifer. I couldn’t not comment especially as it’s my birthday this week (Tuesday) and it would be lovely to have an extra present. I’m not sure that I’ll be able to keep up with an hourly post, but I’ll drop in as often as I can, because I appreciate all the effort that has gone in to this.
