Australia Day Giveaway

Australia Day Giveaway #ctmh #closetomyheart #Australia #aussie #down #under #flag #card #giveaway

We’re taking our month-long papercrafting celebration to the other corner of the world today—g’day Australia!!

Some of you may be unaware, but the Close To My Heart family is made up of quite a large group of Aussies, and today, 26 January (AEST), is Australia Day in the land down under! While the holiday has evolved over time and is celebrated differently than it has been in the past, and as we reflect on our love for our mates, we want to celebrate all things Australian with—drum roll please—another giveaway!

We’ll start by choosing six lucky winners, each of whom will win one of these Australian themed stamparoonies…


AND, for our grand prize…

Australia Day Giveaway #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #australia #day #aussie #expressions #greetings #flag #country #queensland

ONE lucky winner will win a Hello AU/NZ digital Cricut® collection! Featuring 20 layered images, this collection has shapes, overlays, and names for Australian (and New Zealand) states and territories, as well as a local flower, slogan, and coordinating icon for each. The collection also includes extra images about Australia (and New Zealand), including the country’s flag.

So how do you win? It takes 2 steps. One, make sure you are a subscriber of this blog, promising you’ll pop around. And two, leave a comment below telling us what you love about Straya (that’s Australia for our non Aussie-speak mates) or being a true blue Aussie. It’s that easy! Winners will be chosen randomly by 10 a.m. AEST on 27 January (that’s 4 p.m. MST on January 26). No worries, you do not have to be Australian to win!

Take it easy and have a good one!

  7. I’m not from Australia, but that’s my number two bucket list dream trip! Sorry, Ireland is number one. I think the land, the Great Barrier Reef and the people with their incredible accent and attitude, would be so wonderful to experience. And, to scrap it afterwards, with these cool stamps, bonus!!

  8. Australia is CLOSE TO MY HEART because one of my daughters lives there…along with my two grandsons. We miss them very much, and love Australian reminders. I love scrapbooking our trips there so would really appreciate these items! G’day!

  9. I love OZ…lamingtons, vegimite, tim tams, pavlova, fritz, pavlovas, beach, bush, kangaroos, koals, utes, …

  10. Oh, how I would love to win one of these prizes. My favorite thing about Australia is my son who moved there 4 years ago, and it doesn’t look like he’ll be coming back home to Canada anytime soon. At this moment I am putting together a scrapbook from our trip there last year. These stamps could come in really handy!

  11. l love Aussie Down Under our country lifestyle and beaches its a great country to be living in and when you get the aussie blues some one will say come on mate time to scrap book those blues away and those stamps above would be great to clear those blues as well from this aussie chic colleen

  12. I love Australia because it’s the lucky country! I love where I live in Gippsland in country Victoria and we get every season…sometimes in a day! There is so much to look at, photograph and scrapbook – winning this would be just fabulous!

  13. There’s no where else I’d want to call home! Australia is such a beautiful place to live & I couldn’t picture bringing my kids up anywhere else. I can’t wait to explore more of Australia with my kids & scrapbook our family adventures! These prizes would be perfect for it

  14. I love living in Australia! Such a beautiful place to live. I love it when I get to travel to see the amazing sights around this country I call home.

  15. Love so much about Aussie. The people, animals, beaches and forests and vast land. Such a huge country with so much to offer.

  16. I love living in Australia because of the diverse opportunities it offers. Australia has beautiful landscapes and amazing wildlife. As nice as it is to take overseas trips, it’s always nice to come home. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.

  17. Australia is the only place to live- been here all my life and plan on staying for the rest of it! While I enjoy travelling, there’s nothing like coming back to our wonderful country! We have the best of everything here- climate, nature, food, great people & the ability to live in peace. What more could you want??!!

  18. I love a sunburnt country,
    A land of sweeping plains,
    Of ragged mountain ranges,
    Of droughts and flooding rains.
    I love her far horizons,
    I love her jewel-sea,
    Her beauty and her terror
    The wide brown land for me!

  19. Australia Day – Celebrating with family and friends, BBQ’s, swimming, sunscreen & hats, making memories (and taking photos to print and scrap later), pavlova, salads, sun, laughter, thongs, flys (love em or hate em they are sure to be found at any true Ausssie event!), Tim Tams, milo, bush, beaches, vegemite. We really do live in the lucky country!

  20. I love Australia because it has become a part of our family. Our beloved son in law is from Australia and therefore we now have family there and it is just such a beautiful part of the world to visit and explore!

  21. What do I love about Straya – the freedom to be ourself, the freedom of speech & to watch out for our fellow Strayans, the freedom to move around our wide country & the freedom to enjoy the simple things of life if so desired.

  22. I am a New Zealander but Oz is pretty cool & I have lots of family there. Its neat having such variety of places from all the theme parks n beaches to traveling through the outback. It would so useful to have these great stamps & cricut images of Oz & NZ.

  23. I love the fact that the CTMH organisers include the Austalian consultants as part of their family and plan accordingly. I value that our country’s National day is thought about in the planning and production line of stamps. Its great to have access to these resources and certainly makes it easier for us to document memories of our special national day’s celebrations.

  24. I love that there are so many different things to do and different things to see here in Australia. I also love the bbqs, the sunshine and the animals.

  25. What can i say. All Australians always go above and beyond too help fellow friends! Always willing to give 110% in all they do

  26. Straya has clean open air with so many diverse cultural backgrounds. I feel safe in my own country travelling. We woke up and gathered for eggs bacon abd beabs for brekkie and a Leamington with a cuppa this afternoon

  27. I love our friendly, easy going, caring nature. Australia is as diverse in culture as it is in its landscape. Australian people are as dinky di as they come. Our flora and fauna are unbelievably beautiful. I could go on forever but I’ll stop here. Happy Australia Day!

  28. I love Australia, because it is my home. It is a country of grand diversity, of beautiful mountains and beaches, of animals seen no where else, of people from many nations who call it home as well. We have freedom here that I love. Today is Australia Day, a day where I could jump in the car and explore those mountains and beaches in one day. Love my country!!

  29. I love our country it’s so diverse and one of a kind in beauty and it’s people. Close To My Heart products capture the mood and colours of our country I really enjoy using them.

  30. Blessed to live in this wonderful country we call Australia. Acknowledging the land and people’s of the Murraylands and Adelaide Hills – the Ngarrindjeri and Peramangk people’s. Especially grateful for the many friendships formed within CTMH 😍💞💞🎉

  31. I love living in “Straya” as it is a great place to live with its beautiful landscapes that make for wonderful holidays & gorgeous scrapbooking layouts. Being a true blue Aussie to me means mateship (friendship) & family and making memories together.

  32. Australia is on my bucket list to visit someday 🙂 hopefully for our 35th anniversary- just 9 years to go!

  33. My daughter loved and worked in Australia for a few years. When she came back I wasn’t sure she would stay she enjoyed it so much.

  34. I came to Sydney from Boston in 1974 to teach for 1 year. I am still here in 2018. Although America is my birth country and so many of my family live there, Australia is my home with my children and grandchildren. I have been fortunate to teach in many multi cultural schools over my career, working with refugees from Cambodia, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Syria. And I am so lucky to live in a country that not only welcomes refugees and migrants but values their cultures. I am richer for every student and family I have met. Happy Australia Day.

  35. Sun, surf, beaches, open spaces and the lifestyle that goes with it . These are the things I love about Australia.

  36. I love Australia for its beauty (from the sea to the outback – esp the outback!!), the unusual animals, the choice of lifestyle is ours, multiculturalism, masses of sunshine (WA), freedom, opportunities…..I could go on and on and on….I am very proud to be an Aussie! Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi !!!!

  37. I love Australia because it is a country which has everything! We have the sun, lovely wind, beaches, lush green spaces, beautiful rivers, and environment like no other. But not just that, we have freedom, democracy, multiculturalism and all these things we take for granted. Being Australian is not only great because of the place, but because of the people and our society which makes living here amazing! I would absolutely love to have some Australian stamps to be able to scrapbook the many memories I have made throughout the country. Australia is so big and diverse that I don’t even have to go to another country to go on a holiday somewhere new with amazing sites. I have just driven from Perth to Melbourne and would love to scrapbook those memories!!
