March Winners Post DELAYED


Hey, STAMPlorations friends. I know many of you eagerly look out for the winners post every 10th of the month. My apologies but that post is delayed.

The last 2 1/2 weeks, a family member has been ill (no, it's not Covid-19, but it's serious enough to require angioplasty and stenting) and I have been stretched thin, barely getting any rest and sleep, as I had to pile on more on my plate to keep the Russ household running on top of managing the business and taking care of 2 extremely active little girls (who always seem to come up with things that make me want to pull my hair out every single day).

I thought I'd be able to get the winners post done before midnight tonight but I'm running on empty. I'm just wiped out and desperately need rest and sleep.

So...the March winners post will be published either on Monday (4/12) or Tuesday (4/13), depending on how I do on the rest/sleep department in the next couple of days. The deadline for claiming prizes will be adjusted accordingly. Plus, you have until Sunday night to comment on the March posts for more chances at our prizes. (Commenting usually closes on the 8th but I'm extending it this one time.)

Thanks for your patience and understanding!

{Spotlight Project} Maria Makes A One-layer Card With Flexi-Templates


Hello STAMP friends! I recently got some Flexi Templates designed by my teamie Monika and I'd like to share some fun I had with them with you today in my Spotlight project. There are so many things you can do with them (check out my Tuesday inspiration posts this month for more ideas). Today I created a one layer card with lots of interest using the oval templates. Take a look.

Things with Wings Blog Hop and Linky Party!

Hey, stamping friends! Are you ready to celebrate spring? We have the perfect event for that here on the blog: the Things with Wings Blog Hop and Linky Party!

The STAMPgirls are here sharing winged-themed projects. You're sure to be inspired and we would love for you to join us by creating and linking your own projects -- anything is welcome as long as there are wings in it -- butterflies, dragonflies, bees, birds, fairies, bugs, bees, pterodactyl, planes, cupid...anything that flies, really...or even sentiments that mention/suggest flight/flying/objects with wings! :o) 

Commenting and linking up is from today until Friday, May 7, 11:55 p.m. Pacific. We'll announce the winners on May 10 in the April winners post so be sure to follow our blog if you aren't already.


We'll be drawing EIGHT lucky crafters to win these prizes:
  • THREE (3) randomly drawn winners from all comments left on the STAMP blog and participating designers blog will each receive a $10 prize code to the store
  • THREE (3) randomly drawn participants in the Things with Wings linky party will each receive a $15 prize code to the store
  • ONE (1) randomly drawn participant in the Things with Wings linky party will receive a $25 prize code to the store
  • ONE (1) randomly drawn participant in the Things with Wings linky party whose entry features a STAMPlorations product (stamp/stencil/die/stickers/embellishment/card fronts/ephemera) will receive the Things with Wings Kit ($45 value)
  • Extra prizes: I love giving away surprise prizes so there are going to be at least 3 extra prizes in the form of prize codes and products :o)

***

The girls in the Inspiration team are kicking off this event so have a look at what they made and be inspired! Visit their blogs and leave them some love while you're there :o)
