{October 2018 to June 2019 Term} Re-Introducing the STAMPlorations Design Team!


Hey, STAMPlorations friends! After a much-needed summer break, the STAMPlorations girls are rarin' to get back to business here on the blog! Our challenges resume in October.

You'll see familiar faces -- but we've re-organized a little bit. And so I'd like to re-introduce the STAMPlorations design team.

{HEADS UP!} Two Christmas Blog Hops with the STAMPlorations Girls - September 24 to 28

   

Happy Friday, STAMPlorations friends! We have two special events for you all to look forward to next week:

Christmas Redux Hop
September 24

Christmas Special Release Hop
September 25 to 28


On Monday, 7 STAMPlorations girls will be sharing Christmas projects they made using our previously released Christmas CUTplorations thin metal dies + stamps. 

Then from Tuesday until Friday, the girls in the Inspiration team will be sharing projects featuring Shirley's 3 newest layered stamp sets, as well as one of two cover plates and two of 6 phrase dies I designed.

And you know the drill around here -- when you hop and leave comments here on the blog and on the designers' blogs, you get a shot at the prizes. For these two hops, our prizes are: winner's choice of two (2) Christmas word/phrase dies, a $15 gift certificate, and a $25 gift certificate.

And for two weeks (from September 24 to October 8), the thin metal dies in the Christmas Dies section will be 10% off -- no coupon needed (discount applied on checkout), and when you use a STAMPlorations girl discount code, you can get an extra 20% off. So if you've got some Christmas thin metal dies in your wishlist, you'll be able to snag them for up to 30% off starting Monday.

So we'll see you back here on Monday, okay? Until then, have a great weekend!



PS: Keep your eyes peeled for a surprise post from me in the next two weeks. (Well, it isn't really a surprise now that I've warned you about it - haha!) At the last minute (as in 2 weeks ago), I managed to finish designing 4 extra Christmas stamp sets. I received samples of the sets yesterday and they will be in the store by mid-October. As I have a few spares, I've decided that I'll do a special post where I'll give away a set or two before the stamps are even available in the store :o)

{Introducing} Our Newest CAS Cards Design Team Member: Nancy Littrell

Hello again! Yesterday you met our newest batch of talented guest designers. Today, meet the newest addition to the STAMPlorations design team: the fabulous and talented Nancy Littrell of scandinancy creates!

I've been itching to invite Nancy to become a regular member of our design team because she makes some of the most incredible artsy CAS cards on blogland. I'm a huge fan of her work and what's more...she uses STAMPlorations products whenever she can. I so wanted her on the CAS Cards Challenge team because I'm pretty sure she'll be a wonderful addition to our already pretty awesome team. When finally a spot became available, I wasted no time reaching out to her and asking if she would be interested. Imagine how happy and excited I was when she said yes :o)

{Spotlight Project} Shirley's Inspired By Bullet Journals


Hellooo! As I was trawling Pinterest for some quick inspiration for my Spotlight Post, I was taken by some images of bullet journals - not the actual list pages, but the way that some pages had colourful framed blocks of information, so I thought I'd try and replicate the idea in a card.

{AUGUST WINNERS}


Happy Monday, everyone! We've got last month's winners to announce. 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 August Inspiration Projects, as well as winners of our special posts -- Wonderful Wednesday Coloring #3 and #4 and Say It Big with Bold Birds by Melissa :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 Monday, September 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 August Winner - 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.)
