SAF 2016: Farewell

By July 23, 2016Stamp-a-faire

Here we are at the very end of another Stamp-a-faire!  It’s so hard to believe this day is coming to a close already!  Everyone had been such great sports!  Here’s a little farewell from us to all of you!


It is difficult to put into words just how much it means to all of us behind the scenes to see your enthusiasm, your excitement and your talents invested into this online event.  Without all of you and the effort you put forth, this day wouldn’t be what it is!  So thank you from all of us.  You inspire us to to do our best in everything we do!

This is your chance to share photo of yourself and/or your friends gathered for today on a special inLinkz list!  Or you can even just holding your favorite card from the day in front of you if you were solo! By sharing a photo here, you also have a chance at winning another generous Papertrey gift certificate!

Two of the participants who post here tonight will be selected to receive a $50 PTI gift certificate and will be announced on our Tuesday night Stamp-a-faire winners post.  You have until 7am ET, Tuesday, July 26th to add your link here.  We look forward to seeing a little peek into all of the fun you’ve had!  And thanks again for joining us!

    I didn’t get to comment on all the posts, but I just wanted to tell you what a fabulous job you all did. As someone who took a ton of art history classes in college, it was fun to revisit the masters and consider using them as inspiration in my card making more. 🙂

    Thank you all SO much for all of your hard work and inspiration!! ♥ Stamp-a-Faire 2016 was such an exciting way for me to learn and grow as a cardmaker! Yesterday I learned so many new techniques that I will use again and again. I’m a newer cardmaker, so I work very slowly. I still have two more challenges to finish this afternoon. 🙂 Then I will link up my photos. It feels wonderful to be part of this very special, creative community! ♡

    Thank you SO much, Nichole, for leaving so many thoughtful, encouraging comments on IG. It means the world to hear sweet thoughts from other papercrafters! Can’t wait for my ‘Art with Heart’ stamp set to arrive! ♡Dawn Y.

    Thanks to all for another great year! I have a lot of things going on now that are not so great and this weekend was wonderful. I appreciate everything it took to make it possible.

    Many thanks to all who helped to pull this event off. I look forward to it each year and set aside the day to participate. After a few bumpy starts with my Internet provider on Saturday, I was able to eventually participate in everything.

    This year’s event was definitely different from last year (which is okay and somewhat expected) with a lot more focus this year on painting as part of the design process. Until next year…
