{NOVEMBER and DECEMBER WINNERS}

Hello, STAMP friends! It's time to announce last month's winners -- as well as November's winners. I went ahead and combined the winners of the two previous months in this post to keep things organized and so there's only one claim-your-prize-by date to remember. The last couple of months of last year were crazy enough. Plus I was, and still am, going through a major health/medical issue that started in early October. It required an overhaul of my routine; I had to re-organize and prioritize things...thus why so many tasks got pushed back (and why I'm now playing catch up).

In any case, we've got winners of our challenges, as well as winners of our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge, and November and December Inspiration Projects posts. We also have the winners picked from all posts we published in November and December, as well as winners of our special posts (Fall|Winter Coffee Lovers Hop, 7th Giving Thanks Hop, Ephemera Cuts post). Challenge main winners were picked by STAMPlorations design team members and all other winners were randomly chosen by Random.org.

An important reminder to challenge players: 
  • When playing in our challenges, you must display the challenge graphic AND link back to the challenge post via TEXT link in your blog post.
  • Be mindful of the maximum challenge entries -- you may enter up to 3 times per challenge.

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), unless a specific announce-by date is indicated in a post. 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*** 

  • Prize codes expire one month (30 days) from the date they are issued to winners. However, challenge winners who use STAMPlorations products in their winning entries are issued prize codes that expire 60 days from their issue date.
  • A player and/or commenter who is picked more than once will be issued one prize code that combines the winning amount (e.g., if a player is randomly picked for a $7 prize code in one of the challenges and is also picked as a $10 winner for commenting on one of the posts, she will be issued a $17 prize code)
  • Prize codes may be combined, provided the first prize code has not yet expired or has not been used.
  • A prize code can be applied on products in the main, digital, and outlet stores and on any order in the store, before shipping. It cannot be combined with other percent off code or dollars off, but may be combined with a free shipping code (if available and if minimum is met) but the sub-total must be equivalent to or more than the value of the prize code -- e.g., a $10 prize code will NOT work if the sub-total (before shipping) is less than $10. The shopping cart will display an error. There must be at least $10 worth of products in the cart for a $10 prize code to work.
  • Prize codes issued to challenge winners and post commenters are not transferrable. A prize code is tagged with the winner's name and if it is used by someone other than the one it was issued to, the order will be voided and the prize code will not be re-issued. If you have a prize code that you don't intend to use, simply let it expire or send an email to stamplorations@gmail.com so it can be deactivated.

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Monday, January 24. Prizes not claimed by January 24 will be forfeited -- NO EXCEPTIONS. Please understand that because we have a lot of winners and give away at least $150 worth of prizes in the form of products and gift/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.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLAIMING PRIZE

Winners must fill out a Google form to claim their prize. This ensures that there is an off-site, time/date-stamped record of winners claiming their prize. So if you are one of the winners, fill out the form by clicking on the link below:

WINNERS CLAIM FORM

The form will stop accepting responses on January 24 at 12 noon Pacific time. This is the only way prizes can be claimed. The form has specific instructions so please take the time to read it provide all the needed information.

If you have already filled out the form, please DO NOT fill it out again. Your response is already recorded - but sometimes it takes me a while to get back to the winners, as I do this in batches for efficiency.
