200 YouTube Subscriber Giveaway


I'm giving away a couple of smash book/daybook/junk journals over on YouTube since that's where I've been spending most of my time lately. Well, there and in my art room. I've been making these kind of journals like a crazy woman but I'm not actually using them for myself so I guess they'll end up on Etsy pretty soon.



Want to win one?  Here's what you need to do:
1. Go subscribe to my YouTube channel.
2. Find the video called "200 Subscriber Giveaway" or something pretty close to that.
3. Watch the video then leave comment.
Easy, right? I made the process as simple as possible since I myself have trouble following all the hoops that some people make you jump through just to enter a silly drawing.

If you are an advanced free giveaway enter-er, then you can follow these next advanced instructions for an additional chance to win one of the journals:
4. After you leave a comment on the video, then leave a comment on this blog post and mention in it that you subscribe to my YouTube channel. The blog post comment will be your additional entry.
I hope that's not too taxing on anyone. Obviously the maximum number of entries you can get is 2 even if you comment a dozen times. I don't really need to say that do I?

Here are a bunch of pictures of the journals so you can see what you might be getting. They are handmade (by me) junk-type journals made from found papers and embellished with scrapbook papers, die cuts and copyright-free images. Most of the pages have been stitched with a sewing machine for a messy, stringy look. Each journal has a heavy white cardstock cover with scrapbook paper strips on it. The journal is hand bound in a long stitch with waxed linen thread. Some of the pages have pockets or envelopes and will include a few post-it type notes, tags, labels, stickers or other little pieces of ephemera.

The cover of each journal measures 5-1/2" wide X 8-1/2" long. They have lots of blank space for you to add your own photos, notes, embellishments and personal style. They also include plenty of lined paper for journaling or making lists. They would make a perfect smash book or daybook or even a written journal or an art journal for mixed media work.

The giveaway will end at midnight CST on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 so you have till then to follow all those complicated entry instructions. I will then post a video of the drawing and announce the winner. Good luck to everyone!

Hi, Shannon. I subscribed a few weeks ago. I thoroughly enjoy both your videos and your blog.

Lori Li said...

Ok, I'm commenting here, too. Finally. Already did your YouTube. This is my third time trying to leave a comment-- the first two times I got sidetracked reading your other blog posts, and forgot what I'd originally intended. So this time, I'M NOT FORGETTING. Anyway, congrats on your 200+ subscribers! And here's to lots and lots more from you!

Lori Li said...

I FORGOT! "I subscribe to your YouTube Channel." There. (Yes, I know-- that makes three comments total, but you can ignore my last one if you want.)

Christy Decker said...
