{JULY WINNERS}


Hi, everyone! We have last month's winners. Remember, the STAMPgirls are on a summer break but our challenges continue -- and it's anything goes! We also have the winners of our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge and July Inspiration Projects, as well as winners of our special posts -- Wonderful Wednesday Coloring #1 and #2, Summer 2018 Product Release Hop, Christmas in July with Karola, Collab Hop with Coffee Loving Cardmakers, and Blossom Bliss Blog Hop and Linky Party :o) All winners were randomly chosen with the help of Random.org.

An important note about our winners post: winners (challenges, blog hops, and special posts) of the previous month are announced in one post (this one). All winners must claim their prizes by the deadline. 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 Friday, August 24. Prizes not claimed by then will be forfeited -- no exceptions. Please understand that because we have a lot of winners and give away $100 to $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 stamplorations@gmail.com. Please follow this format in the subject line:
"STAMPlorations July Winner - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations July Winner - CUTplorations 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.)
