Stamp-a-faire 2013 Memories…and Winners!

By August 26, 2013Stamp-a-faire

Well, it's hard to believe another worldwide online Stamp-a-faire event has come and gone!  And what a whirlwind it was!  This might *possibly* go down as the messiest Stamp-a-faire on record with all of our dying and salting and misting and rolling and shrinking!  

Just in case you missed any of this popular event, you can check out compete archives HERE.

I have put together a few of the photos that you all submitted to us in the form of a short slideshow.  Boy, do you gals know how to party!  I had a huge smile on my face the entire time I was editing this because I could just *feel* your happiness through the screen!  Enjoy!


If you are viewing this post within an email rather than directly on my blog, you can access the video HERE.

Wasn't that fun to see all of those snippets together like that?  It is SUCH a cool part of my job to see stampers from around the world using Papertrey products to have fun and make beautiful things.  It truly feeds my creative soul, so thank you!

So, there is one more LITTLE thing I thought I would mention while I was here, and that was something about the winners from this event… 

Not such a little thing I suppose since there are FIFTEEN of you!

You can click the link below to check out all of the individual challenge winners!

 CLICK HERE for Stamp-a-faire 2013 WINNERS!

But of course there is one BIG winner that deserves their  announcement right on the front page, and that is the Top Chef crown! I'm pleased to announce…


Congratulations, Heidi!  You were selected as the Top Chef of Stamp-a-faire 2013!  You have won a $200 Papertrey Ink gift certificate to spend however you choose!  Be sure to send a note off to customer service to let them know what email address you would like your gift certificate sent to.

I am going to sign off for the night, but wanted to leave you with this quote, which I think sums up this year's event nicely…

    Such a great event! I played on the banks of Lake Ontario….people were wondering why I kept walking down from our camp to the lakeshore and watching my phone! How better to get the videos…there is no reception in the woods! THANK YOU, Nichole and DT. It was a GREAT DAY!

    Thanks again to you and all the design team for the amazing day on Saturday. I can’t even imagine how hard you all worked to put on this fun event. Thanks too for all the people who posted their projects. I need to figure out how to do that and participate instead of just watching.

    Oh the video was such fun – thank you for sharing. I was giddy when I saw one of my pictures there. In the next week or so I am planning on going through the posts again and looking at more of the projects that were created. I still have ideas floating around in my head about things I want to make with these techniques.
