We've got winners of our summer challenges to announce. We've also got the winners of the Bloomtangled blog hop and linky party. Thank you to all of you who played in our challenges last month and who participated in our hops.

An important note about our winners post: winners (challenges and blog hops) of the previous month are announced in one post (this one). 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 Thursday, September 21. Prizes not claimed by September 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 August (Winner, Top Pick, Random Draw) - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations August 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.)


We randomly picked 3 winners in this post.

The Theme & Sketch Challenge is on a summer break, but we've got a Summer Theme & Sketch Challenge linkup going on here. We'll be back to regular programming on October 6.

Spammers have been in full force lately so I had to turn comment moderation on. We love hearing from fellow crafters (not spammers), so your comment will be approved as soon as possible. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
