Splitcoaststampers.com - the world's #1 papercrafting community
You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST. We pride ourselves on being great hosts, but guests have limited access to some of our incredible artwork, our lively forums and other super cool features of the site! You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, please give a warm round of applause to our VSN Honors! There were so many great cards and fabulous players that it was so hard for our hostesses to make these decisions. Alas, we can only honor a few cards, even though we would like to honor them all! You are all truly stamping stars in our book!
This round we have choosen to honor the players of VSN in 3 categories:
Best Representation of the Challenge
along with 2 special categories: Kids' Challenge, post #5 and Spirit of VSN awards, post #6
With no further ado......Our VSN Stars of the Cabaret!
It's time to close the show and begin packing up the props and sets and wonderful costumes and as we do this, we are remembering the fabulous acts and performances in our Cabaret. As we reminisce, there are some special contributions to the show that we cannot let pass without an extra round of applause. So hostesses, join us and put your hands together for these members of our audience who added a little extra sparkle and special pizzazz to our entire VSN. These stampers may have provided support and encouragement or they may have persevered on a particularly difficult challenge for them or they just made the whole VSN experience exciting, fresh, and fun. Thank you for being a special part of the show. Your spirit touched us!
Awesome job ladies. It was a fabulous VSN and we appreciate your participation. Choosing an awards gallery is always the hardest part of this job for the hostesses. My hat goes off to all of you for your outstanding creations.

Just piggybacking what Stacey and Jo so awesomely said! It was a privilege and an honor to coordinate this VSN as our players were the BEST! Thank you for the time you spent with us, teaching us, showing us better ways, giving us inspiration--thanks for sharing YOU with us! Applause, applause, applause!
Congrats to everyone and I totally agree - the hardest part for me was choosing the honourees simply because we had so many beautiful creations to choose from - awesome, awesome, awesome job ladies!!!!!!
My heart is beating so fast right now as I see my name up there twice! Thanks so much for the recognition. It is wonderful to be in such fine company. This site really pushes me to be a better stamper just to keep up with everyone here. Many thanks!
This was just the best VSN ever! The coordinators, hostesses, and audience alike made this so much fun! And the cards and challenges for this cool theme were so inspiring! I can't wait for the next one! Thanks to all!
I came to the forum excited to congratulate all the winners (and get more great ideas to CASE!!!) and when I saw my name on the lists I actually got tears in my eyes. Honors Gallery? On my first time doing this? INCONCEIVABLE! Totally made my year!
The challenges were so much fun and I had a great time looking at everyone else's cards. I've never seen so many GREAT cards in one place and I wished I'd had time to comment on them all. There was something that *OOOHHH-ed* me on every single one. I was honored just to be playing along with such amazing talent, and this is the icing on the cake and the cherry too! Thanks for letting me play and encouraging me - this site and all the creative talent here is AWESOME!!!!! Thanks, thanks and more thanks.
Shutting up now... HUGS TO ALL!!!
I am humble and honored to be mentioned in the stars of VSN. As I said in the thank you thread, this was my first VSN. I didn't think I would enjoy spending a whole weekend stamping, but GIRLS was I EVER wrong. I was hooked with the beginning challenge and stayed till the last minute to upload.
I thank everyone from the moment the planning started who gave of their time, brain power and talent to birth this theme. It was awesome and I can hardly wait to launch into the next one...why my lovely heels are just barely wet!
So with that said, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

Oh my goodness! I'm totally blown away. Thanks so much. This was such a fantastic VSN, and the Honors Gallery is the icing on the cake! Congrats to everyone who played - I'm still wandering through the galleries and loving all of the cards!
I'm so honored to have gotten a spirit award! It's only cuz it was a great VSN that I was excited about! So, all of you who put it on should be getting the awards! But thank you! And congratulations to all who got awards!
I'm stunned and honored to see my name among the honorable mentions. I have looked at every card listed in the honors gallery, and I feel more humble still. Everyone created beautiful cards, and our hostesses rocked with great challenges. Thanks to all the coordinators and hostesses for all their work.
WOW-EEEEE! Being honoured in both the best representation plus the honorable mentions, and having a chance to be inspired by all of the others who got awards, absolutely FANTASTIC! That made my day for sure!
And I love the VSN---it "forces" me to take the time to be creative and do what I love to do, and I even get to learn some new techniques in the process and be stretched at the same time. Thanks again to all the hostesses and the coordinators...already craving the next time.
Wowsers....I didn't even know this was up...(thanks Astrid!!)
Congrats to all for their amazing creations!!!!!!
I'm ummmm a bit shocked...ok a lot shocked!!! I got to see my name in lights...a few times....THANKS!!!!!
(DH, is saying that my "White Christmas" card made it cuz he took the photo....lol)
I'm not surprized to see my sister's name in lights an amazing 4 times for this VSN... I'm always amazed by what she can create with paper, ink and embellishments!! I was very shocked when I got her frantic phone message saying that I had gotten an Standing O... so I rushed to the site and sure enough my sassy leggy lady card was there... so cool - but even cooler that I was able to VSN with my amazing mom, sister and stampin buddies! I can't wait for the next one!!

If you let your fears keep you from flying, you will never reach your height
Thank you so much, I am very honoured to have been chosen for the Standing Ovation category... Congratulations to everyone chosen in all the categories.. I didn't have much time to play in the VSN weekend, but had fun making the few cards I did manage to make....
Thanks again to all of the VSN hostesses....
