Tuesday, September 10, 2019


Hello, STAMP friends! It's the 10th of the month, which means it's time to announce last month's winners! We also have winners of our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge and August Inspiration Projects posts, as well as winners of our special posts: Stencil Sunday, Digital Wednesday, Beautiful You/Snow Much Special Stamps Release, Coloring Linky Party, and ShakerBlends Giveaway. Just for the months of July, August, and September, all winners, including challenge winners, are randomly chosen by Random.org.

An important reminder to challenge players: When playing in our challenges, please display the challenge graphic AND link back directly to the challenge post (NOT to the main blog or the challenge section) in your blog post in order to qualify for the prizes. Also, please be mindful of the maximum challenge entries. A couple of our challenges have a limit on the number projects you can link up.

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.

An important note about our prizes: For our challenges, we offer prizes in the form of gift certificates for use in our main store. For our special posts, hops, and events, we offer prizes in the form of gift certificates, gift codes (also called coupon codes and gift vouchers), and products. There is a difference between a gift certificate and a gift code and it's all explained on THIS PAGEHOWEVER, if you are a winner, you may opt for a gift code to our digital store. Note, though, that if you choose this, the gift code cannot be combined with other codes (I use a different e-commerce platform for our digital store).

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Tuesday, September 24. Prizes not claimed by September 24 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, gift certificates, and coupon codes 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

I have an email filter set up for claiming prizes so to avoid delay and to make sure I see your email in my BLOG PRIZE folder, follow this format in the subject line:

"STAMPlorations August Winner - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations August Winner - Theme & Sketch Challenge"
"STAMPlorations August Winner - Digital Wednesday"

It also helps if you include what prize you won (a $15 gift certificate, a $5 gift certificate, a $15 coupon code, $10 gift code, etc.) in the body of your email. Also specify if you prefer to use your prize on our main store or digital store. This way I know which code to generate, as codes generated for one store will NOT work on the other store.

If you are the winner of a tangible/mailable prize, 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 the August winners post. Congratulations to all! Again to all winners, claim your prize by September 24 and be sure to follow the email format so your email gets filtered to my Blog Prizes folder -- this ensures that I don't miss your email. (Instructions are at the beginning of this post, right before the Theme & Sketch Challenge winners). My family and I are traveling overseas at the moment but I will be regularly checking my email. I'll get back to you as soon as I can with your prize, but do give me 5 business days to respond before re-sending your email.

I hope you're all having a wonderful crafty week!

PS: Check out the store's CURRENT PROMOTIONS page for some awesome deals: end-of-summer super sale, new CUTplorations dies pre-order sale, freebies with orders, and more!


  1. Happy Dance day! Thank you Shery for the win - I have sent an email to claim the prize. Congrats to all winners! Yeah!

  2. Congratulations to all the winners. Yay! I was happy to see that I was one of the winners and that my friend Kitty was also a winner. Thank you.

    Thanks for the gentle reminder about the rules.

    Have a safe trip. [Bunny]

  3. Congrats to the winners and thankyou for my voucher! Cathy x

  4. That's great, Shery, thank you so much! I will email you shortly. I need to decide between main store and digital store. Congrats to all the winners and I was happy to see several of my blog friends' names! Thanks for your generosity in prizes! You are awesome!

  5. Hello everyone, especially to the winners. Please know that I have received your emails claiming prizes. It is just taking me a while to get back to you because in addition to traveling, my two girls have been sick. Kat is just now getting well (she developed UTI a day after we got to my mom's and then caught a cold a few days later) although she is still sniffing. Winter and I got sick almost the same time Friday, got better a day but then we both went down again with cough and colds. We are headed to the doctor later today (Tuesday where we're at). So between attending to my 2 girls, I barely had time to really sit down and generate codes. Please bear with me. And I would appreciate prayers and good thoughts -- we are headed home Sunday (22nd) but we may re-book for a later flight if Winter (or I) don't get well soon enough. Thanks for your patience!

    1. Hope you all feel better soon Shery. Hugz

    2. Prayers and good thoughts coming your way. I feel so bad this had to happen when you were visiting family.

  6. I hope you and your lovely girls are on the road to recovery Shery. I'll wait to hear back from you now that I know you got the email. Keep well lovely lady x
