The fourth annual online Stamp-a-faire event, brought to you by Papertrey Ink, is taking place today! Below you will find the complete scheduling details and some helpful links as well.
We've created a fun playlist on our Spotify channel just for today's event! It will be sure to keep your foot tapping while you're stamping. It features over four hours of runway-style music! If you would rather listen to it directly on a mobile device, you can download the Spotify app and search for our username, papertreyink, and click on the SAF 2105 playlist. Enjoy!
Myself along with the Design Team, will be interacting with you all day in the Stamp-a-faire Forum, which can be found HERE. There will be threads started for each challenge and we will be checking out your projects through the InLinkz lists as well! So be sure to stop by and chat for a bit and take the opportunity to ask your favorite designers questions and just get to know them better! This forum will also give you the opportunity to chat with other stampers worldwide who are participating in this event!
How the chellenges work...
All of the challenges provided throughout Stamp-a-faire day will function much like our weekly Make It Monday Challenges. Each Stamp-a-faire Challenge will 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 7am EST Tuesday, September 1st, so you will have ample time to particpate and photograph your projects. Two winners will be randomly selected from each InLinkz list to each win a $25 gift certificate and announced on Tuesday as well!
Here is the full schedule:
- 7am- Bridal Challenge with the Team
- 9am- Patterns Challenge with the Team
- 11am- Threads Challenge with Laura Bassen + Danielle Flanders
- 1pm- Accessories Challenge with Erin Lincoln + Maile Belles
- 3pm- Mix + Match Challenge with Betsy Veldman + Dawn McVey
- 5pm- Unconventional Materials Challenge
- 7pm- Pins + Needles Challenge with Amy Sheffer, Heather Nichols + Melissa Phillips
- 9pm- Runway Inspiration Challenge with the Team
- 10pm- Make It Work Challenge with the Team

We provided a printable schedule and supply list a few weeks ago. You can access it HERE.
September 1st, 7am EST- Challenge Projects Due:
At 7am EST on Tuesday, all of the InLinkz SAF Challenge Lists will be closed and we will no longer be accepting submissions that are eligible for prizes. All of the winners from all the SAF challenges will be posted on our Stamp-a-faire Winners Page by 9pm EST Tuesday night.
Thank You to the Team
The entire Design Team has been working diligently behind the scenes for months to bring together all of the tutorials and videos you will be enjoying during tomorrow's event. I wanted to take a moment to thank them for all of their hard work and dedication in seeing these preparations through. There is already a pretty extensive workload required for our team members with the release schedule each month, so it was an incredible accomplishment to complete all of these extra tasks that coincided with that. Thank you to the entire team!
As a reminder to ALL of our customers, Saturday, August 29th also marks the day you can earn the Stamp-a-faire exclusive stamp set, Fashion Sense ($15 value). This stamp set will be available for free on Stamp-a-faire day (August 29th, 2015) to all customers who make a qualifying purchase of $100 or more between 7am EST and 11:30pm EST, limit one per customer.
