Welcome to Magazine Monday! With the world all abuzz over the recent engagement of England’s Prince William, I thought it was high time we shined the spotlight on Paper Crafts’ own royalty…our 2010 Stamping Royalty winners!
This year we received over 2,100 stamped entries (in five categories) for this reader favorite card contest. And while we could only select a few to wear the coveted crown, we’re confident these 12 ladies will reign supreme over the next year. Shall we meet our new royal court? All hail the 2010 Stamping Royalty winners…

Besides these fancy tiaras, each winner took home a royal prize package of card making and stamping supplies worth over $250 and their winning card(s) was published in our November/December 2010 issue. To see all 15 cards, turn to p. 74. Here’s a sneak peek at the Season’s Greetings category:
Fun fact about Rachael (#8)…when she found out we wanted to spotlight all of the 2010 winners in our November/December issue (turn to p. 14), she quickly launched a blog knowing we would want to publish that information. Talk about a classy royal! Make sure you stop by Rachael’s blog (and the other 11 winners!) to congratulate them on a job well done. And stay tuned for our 2011 Stamping Royalty Card Contest…it will be announced in our highly anticipated Stamp It! Techniques special issue (on sale Jan. 18)!
