Stamp-a-faire 2012 Schedule, S’mores & Stamper’s First Aid

By July 16, 2012Stamp-a-faire

The first online Stamp-a-faire event, brought to you by Papertrey Ink, will be happening THIS Saturday!  Only a few short days away!  Below you will find the complete scheduling details again, some fun s'mores recipes for the Friday Night Campfire Meet & Greet as well as an InLinkz list for you to submit your entries for the Stamper's First Aid event.  Read below for all the complete details!

TODAY, July 16th through 6am EST, July 18th- Stamper's First Aid Submissions Accepted:

Beginning today, July 16th, through 6am EST on Wednesday, July 18th the InLinkz list at the end of this post will be open for submissions for the Stamper's First Aid Event.  Customers should post a link to a project that they have created in the past that they felt needed just a *little* something; a project that needs a diagnosis for one reason or another. Each DT member will select a project to give "first-aid" to and re-make the project, making changes that they feel benefit the project while staying true to your original concept.  All of the team members "made-over" projects will be highlighted Saturday night and each of the customer's who had a card selected will win a $25 PTI gift certificate.  You will find the InLinkz list at the end of this post!

July 20th 6pm EST- Friday Night Campfire Meet & Greet:
A blog post will be made live on my blog that will include a video pieced together of the entire team, introducing ourselves, stating our home state and welcoming everyone to the upcoming events that will begin the next day. Customers will be invited to add to an InLinkz List photo or videos of themselves through blogs, Instagram, YouTube or whatever outlet you prefer. You can show off your Stamp-a-faire bags/gear, share a quick photo of your Stamp-a-faire groups that might have gotten together early, where you are in your journey or what you are doing to prepare for the next day etc… And EVERYONE is encouraged to make (and eat!) s'mores.

Of course you can go with a classic s'mores recipe for that night, but here are a few extra special versions that you may want to give a try for that night, courtesy of Sunset Magazine!

Chocolate peanut butter
Anyone who's outgrown classic s'mores will love this version: gooey-sweet melted marshmallow tempered by bittersweet chocolate cookies and salty roasted peanuts.  Spread 1 tablespoon peanut butter (at room temperature, for easy spreading) onto a thin, crisp chocolate water (such as Nabisco Famous Chocolate Waters).  Slide 1 skewer-toasted marshmallow onto peanut butter. Top with a second wafer and squish down gently. Eat, licking fingers.

Strawberry
Take the classic campfire dessert up a notch by adding strawberry slices to Graham crackers, dark chocolate, and roasted marshmallow.

Ginger & caramel
Give s'mores a sophisticated kick with gingersnaps, a Ghirardelli caramel-filled chocolate square, and marshmallow.

Banana
For all-out indulgence, try peanut-butter cookies with Nutella, sliced banana, and marshmallow.  Elvis would have loved this!  :)

July 21st OFFICIAL STAMP-A-FAIRE DAY!

All of the challenges provided will also have a coordinating InLinkz list for you to share your projects using your favorite photo-hosting site (Flickr, Photobucket, etc), gallery or your blog.  Each list will be open until noon EST Monday, July 23rd, so you will have ample time to particpate and photograph your projects.  Winner will be selected from each challenge and announced Monday night!

    I hope we can enter more than one. I have several cards that are okay, but not great and would love to get the DT’s input on how to make them better. I have several entries.

    Hi Nichole, is there anything special happening that we have to be live at our computer for on Saturday? Just wondering if I can pop in and out. I am still not clear exactly how this will all work. Is the time schedule mainly for when each project/video will be posted? Will there be a special URL or will it just be here on your blog?
    Thanks!

    You can definitely pop in and out. The schedule shows what time each of the challenges will be posted on my blog. The blog posts will be set up pretty much like the Make It Monday posts, where the tutorial(s) come first, followed by an InLinkz list for you to upload to if you wish.

    I, too, will not be able to join in this weekend, but am happy to see that we can watch the videos at a later date. Thank you! I also have another question regarding the points system. I know you can’t earn points when you purchase a gift card, but do we earn points when we pay for our purchase with a gift card?
