Links + 3 Giveaways!

Hello there.

Just have some fun (and totally random) links for you…

  • Remember THIS card? That great stamp set is now available outside of the card kit HERE. Love this set.
  • Looking for a baby name? (Ha – I AM!) I love THIS site. Type in a name and it shows it’s popularity over the years. Pretty cool.
  • Are you a Hero Arts fan? They just announced a new My Monthly Hero program HERE. I love THIS new birthday set from it. Fun.
  • If you are on Facebook, I would love to have your vote for a belly photo contest. Each vote they get gives a dollar to the March of Dimes – awesome. If you are interested, click HERE.
  • One of my new favorite cardmakers, Danielle Walls, has a new video series called “Shhh… Mommy’s Hiding.” So cute. Check it out HERE.
  • Wanna see one of the best design teams ever? Truly. This is a strong group of artists. Go HERE – it is the A Blog Name Hero design team. Wow.
  • I have gotten a few emails asking about our die cutting class, A Cut Above. The first half was traditional die cutting (Big Shot, Cuttlebug, etc.) and the second half is the Silhouette. Lots of fun techniques, a ton of videos and great prizes. You can still sign up HERE. Class is underway but you can catch up anytime as the content never goes away.
  • Are you a mom? Proud of your kids? Wanna have a good cry? Go watch THIS.

    Great links and great giveaway! Thanks for the chance!!! We’ve always loved Abigail for a girl’s name. Means Father’s Joy. :) Have also always struggled with boy’s names and had to come up with 5! :P I do like Owen… All the best in these last few days. Praying for you. :)

  18. Val

    This sounds like an awesome class! I love interactive cards, though I really haven’t made many. Thanks for a chance to win a spot in the class!

  19. Carol Perry

    What a great set of links. I’ve been following A Blog named Hero and some of the cards that have been featured are really good. Loved Danielle’s video, did tear up with the video from P&G ( I remember all those swimming, gymnastics, baseball, football, music practices while working full time nights). Love the new set from HA and the new theme, now need to go back and vote for your cute belly (you do really look good at 9 months), and as a L/D nurse the most common names I have heard has been Declan for a boy and Avery for a girl though Abigail is still quite popular. Rambled enough.

  20. Would love to win a spot, thanks.
    Hope the pregnancy is going well.
    Love Hugo for a boy, and Amy for a girl.

  21. Sheryl262

    Love your online classes! Julie’s fantastic too; her class will be amazing. Thank you for a chance at a spot. Voted for your belly pic, thanks for tweeting!

  22. Sue

    Thanks for the chance at the free class–sounds wonderful.
    How about Jamie or Kelsey???
    Good luck with the remodel–will be SO worth it!

  23. Kristin

    Love Julie and her zip, vim, and vigor! This will be a great class! Thanks for offering it. God’s blessings on you and your little one.

  24. Too many good things things here, Jennifer! Love it here. I would also love to take Julie’s class – she is such a talented kick in the old pants! Thanks for all you do and I am thinking of you with the countdown….

  25. Shawn Wenrich

    Looks like a really fun class. Names are so important, I agonized over my daughters name and I’m so glad my husband steered me away from Savannah and we settled on Sarah. Good luck!

  26. Thanks for the chance to win Julie’s class, I’m certain it will be amazing.

    As far as baby names go, I’m not too trendy, but… I love Molly and Grace. I think Molly McGuire sounds AWESOME, and Grace McGuire sounds like a powerful woman. :)

    Boys (I think you’re going girl this time, but what do I know?), I love Ben. Jake or Jack. Jack McGuire sounds like a stud name, invokes thoughts of men on posters in airports… Someone mentioned Declan, I’ve always liked that name. Declan McGuire, hello handsome. :)

  27. Kim R.

    Would love to win! I’m so excited for this class!

  28. Andrea R

    Always so good at enabling! Thanks, I think!

  29. Phyllis B.

    Voted for your “belly.” It’s been too long since I was naming babies…All of my ideas would probably be considered old fashioned! Your son probably has the best suggestions! Best of luck!

  30. Mrs. Hill

    Great stuff! I’d love a spot in the class. Interactive cards are so fun! :)

  31. samijo

    I would love to win a spot. For baby’s names, here in Quebec William and Lea are the most popular.

  32. Ann Marie

    Sounds like a fun class. Thanks for the chance to win.

  33. Great class and I love Julie’s sense of humor and style! Baby names… Audrey is a fave, I also like Audrianna (a hybrid name) … Zoe… Lots of Olivia’s at work and Isabellas too. Boy names we have a Matteo and a Lucas now. How about Tim, like that craft guy you know. Blessings on the baby and best to your family.

  34. Alison

    This class looks great! I love cards or scrapbook pages that move or that can be interacted with! Btw I love the name Shelby for a girl! Well, good luck with finding a worthy name!

  35. Tracy Ercole

    Sounds fantastic. Thanks for the opportunity :)

  36. julia A

    Would love to win a spot in the class – my cards could do with a bit more zing :) For baby names, how about James or Chloe?

  37. Carolyn K

    Great looking class! I’ve always liked Laurel and Cambrie for a girl and Landon for a boy:)

  38. Aundria B.

    Enjoyed visiting some of the things you linked above & will be back to visit the rest & I voted for your belly :) Just love that pic of you and your son – so sweet! As for names, for a girl, Olivia Rose; and for a boy, Eric, Keith, Andrew/Andy or Henry.

    Thank you so much for a chance to win a spot in this class – Love Julie’s fun energy & style!

  39. Jeannie L

    Great links! All the best with finding the name for your baby.

    Would love to win a spot in the class. Love Julie’s videos, her humor and her style. Thanks for the chance.

  40. Kristy B

    This class looks amazing and I would love to be a part of it!

  41. Chris M

    Hi Jennifer! Thank you for the opportunity to win a spot in the class!! Sounds fantastic! I love the name ‘Skylar’ for a girl and ‘Riordan’ (pronounced ‘ree-or-dan’) for a boy. Best of luck with your pregnancy!

  42. Melissa

    Zip it? What can that be? It sounds fun. Thanks for the chance to win this prize.

    Female name…Ankara. (sounds like Ann-care-ah).

  43. bzyPTmom

    Wow–this class sounds like fun and thanks for the chance to win a spot! Here’s some baby name advice–we named our daughter a beautiful French name that means “the one I love”. Unfortunately, we didn’t realize that the name we chose has a whole new meaning, pronunciation and is a boys name in the area of the country we live in, neither of us grew up in this area so we didn’t even consider it! She is now all grown up–but every new year in school, the teacher would be looking for a little boy–and instead was our little girl! So happy choosing and praying all goes well with you and your little one!

  44. Karen R.

    I would love to win a spot in Julie’s class–thanks for the chance!
    I have a few names: One of my sons’ name is Kylan. My daughter’s name is Tierza. Her name is actually in the Bible a couple of times although the spelling is different (Tirzah–I think). It was also the name of Ben Hur’s sister! Good luck with a name!

  45. Karen R.

    I also wanted to tell you about a name my son, Quinn told me about yesterday. It’s Ariadne /æriˈædniː/–in Greek mythology, she was the daughter of Minos king of Crete. Her name means “most holy”. I really liked that. Oh, and my son said for the nickname he would use Ari.

  46. That birthday sentiments are awesome! Love the graphic feel they have. Thanks so much for the links and for the chance to win a spot in Julie’s class!

  47. Amy

    Thanks for the giveaway! I think I spent half my third trimester browsing around the baby name visualizer :-)

  48. Karen SA

    This class sounds like fun. Would love to attend. Thanks for all of the links. Good luck with the names. You look like you are carrying a girl (only my opinion, if I may :-) ). One lady mentioned Grace – sounds good… Good luck and blessings. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Take care.

  49. Great links, thank you. The class sounds like fun and inspiration. Thanks for give a chance to win.

  50. Sharon Holden

    Thanks for the chance to win Jennifer. I love Charli & Mia for a girl and my boys are named Jack and Noah (the only names my hubs and I agreed on ever!)
