    I've totally suggested this idea multiple times in the past year in multiple chats and in my surveys.
    I'm happy you took my feedback from surveys and my suggestions from chats. I'm impressed with that. I sorta wish this had been done a month ago though...long story short, I wish I had seen this progress while I was making a decision about my kits.
    Good luck to those who enter.

    This may be a ridiculous question because I have zero design experience, but by "ideas for stamps" does that mean we should draw it out on paper and just go ahead and take a pic of that to submit? Does it need to be a digital design? Lol, sorry if that seems elementary, I'm still pretty green.

    @cmsplitt Either or! If you want to draw it by hand, please do so and post a photo. But if you're inclined to make a digital design, feel free to do so as well. We will accept your submission either way! :)

    Is it one submission per member? Or can you upload a few different designs.
