We've got July winners and top picks to announce. We've also got the winners of the CASology 5th Birthday Hop and the National Coloring Book Day featuring Bloomtangled. Thank you to all of you who played in our challenges last month and who participated in our hops and event.

An important note about our winners post: all winners (challenges and blog hops) of the previous month are announced in one post (this one) published on the 9th or 10th of the following month. All winners have up to 10 days to claim their prizes. If you are a regular player in our challenges or participant in our blog hops and special events, please consider following our blog, even signing up to receive email notifications when new posts are published. You'll find those links on the right side bar. 

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Monday, August 21. Prizes not claimed by August 21 will be forfeited -- no exceptions. Please understand that because we have a lot of winners and give away over $200 worth of prizes in the form of products and gift certificates each month, it would take a lot of time to contact the winners individually. I also want to be fair to those who regularly visit our blog and claim their prizes within the time frame given.

When claiming your prize, send an email to Please follow this format in the subject line:
"STAMPlorations July (Winner, Top Pick, Random Draw) - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations July Winner - Theme & Sketch Challenge"

If you are the winner of a tangible/mailable prize, do include your complete mailing address in the email you send, even if I already have mailed to you before. (It saves me time having to look up your address.)

That's it for this post. Congratulations to all the winners! 

To all winners: please wait up to 3 business days (weekends don't count as business days) for me to acknowledge your email. If you don't hear back from me after 3 business days, please re-send your email.
