That's it for this post -- WHEW! Lots of winners -- if you are one of the winners, please be patient when waiting to hear back from me. It will take me a while (a few days) to respond and/or mail out your prize.

And here's a last call to join us in our special stamp release hop for Trendy Leaves 2. For a chance to win this fun stamp set, check out this post. Commenting closes tonight at 11:55 p.m. Pacific.

And one last thing...get ready for yet another fun hop and linky party on Wednesday, September 14. The STAMPlorations girls in the Inspiration team will be doing the first CUTplorations Christmas Release Blog Hop. We'll be showcasing two Christmas stamp sets with coordinating dies and 17 CUTplorations thin metal dies. 

Get your craft mojo on and your dies on the ready too because it'll be a fun hop with a flash diecut linky party where you could have a chance at winning stamps and dies when you create and link up new projects using dies/diecuts! And in case you're wondering -- no, CUTplorations dies are not required; use whatever dies you have -- as long as you create new projects for the CUTplorations flash diecut linky party. So consider this your heads up and get projects ready to link up starting September 14 :o)



Okay, that really is it for this looooooooong post (#sorrynotsorry -- it had to be be done!). If you're in the mood, check out the store over the weekend. We've got a few new products added, including new coffee-themed stamps and dies, what with the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop just around the corner. Some of the new products are 10% off too for a limited time. And you'll find that many stamps and all stencils are still discounted from our Labor Day Sale last week -- I've been pretty swamped with other things to update prices :o)

Anyway, hope you all have a super creative weekend!
