{DECEMBER & JANUARY WINNERS}


Hi, everyone! The winners of the December 2017 and January 2018 challenges are finally here. Since the STAMPlorations girls were on vacation in December, there was no voting. Instead, winners were randomly drawn. Thank you so much for your patience!

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 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. 

Also, please make sure you follow our challenge rules. There were a few January players who would have won (voted by the team) but were disqualified because they either (a) did not display the challenge graphic in their blog post OR (b) did not directly link back to the challenge post. In such cases, we move on to the next players who received the most number of votes (after we have verified that they have followed the challenge rules).


Winners, please claim your prize on or before Friday, March 2. Prizes not claimed by then 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 sheryruss@gmail.com. Please follow this format in the subject line:
"STAMPlorations January (Winner, Top Pick, Random Draw) - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations January 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.)

  • special post  for Becca's latest stamp set, LLAMA TELL YOU, which ends February 28
