Grand Opening "New Stamp Release" Event!

Welcome Friends....you are now entering our
Lost Coast Portal to Creativity!
Our brand new Event and Challenge Blog where the stamps of Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you Twice the Inspiration and Double the Fun!
We've got so many fabulous events planned for you this year!  There's going to be lots of Design Team eye candy and many events for you to get involved in and win prizes galore!  You can look forward to awesome blog hops, new stamp release news, A Different Point of View segments, articles, contests, tutorials and Guest Designer features and more, much more!

PLUS our Lost Coaster's Review Challenges will now be hosted here starting with the June Challenge on June 1st and will continue to start on the first Monday of every month!

Exciting times ahead so become a Follower and STAY TO PLAY!

Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda offer a sophisticated line of unique, quirky and alternative images covering vintage, Steampunk, game pieces, collage, shrine, angel, gothic, horror and much more to excite your creative impulses!

To celebrate our grand opening we are throwing a 10 week long event (approx. 2 months) to showcase the stamps featured on the NEW IMAGE pages of both stamp lines so you've got plenty of time to come and play with us!

Win a $20 gift certificate to spend at either company or a combination of both!

HOW YOU CAN PLAY AND WIN!
 Check out ALL our fabulous stamps, shop, create and submit your projects featuring any Lost Coast Designs or Carmen's Veranda stamps into the Inlinkz collection HERE by midnight PST on July 22nd!
  1. Become a Follower of Lost Coast Portal to Creativity!
  2. Submit entries using LCD/CV images ONLY!
  3. BUT if you do use our new images then your name will be entered into the prize drawing TWICE! 
  4. One exception to the rule is...you CAN use sentiments by other companies if your project "needs" it!
  5. Mention our event and include a link back to this post on your blogs!
  6. There is no limit to the amount of entries you can submit but all entries must be in separate posts.
  7. We'd appreciate it if you'd add our Lost Coast Portal to Creativity blog badge on your blogs and promote us :0)
  8. Leave us a comment after linking up your project, we'd love to hear what you think of your new Event and Challenge blog! 
  9. Did you know that you can play in our Events and Challenges even if you don't have a blog?
    Simply upload your project to a photo sharing site, including your own personal Facebook accounts.  Set the privacy setting to "Public" and include the name of the Event in your photo description!  It's that easy so do join the fun!
NEWS ALERT REGARDING OUR MONTHLY CHALLENGES, SKELLIE-FEST AND FUTURE EVENTS! 

Please note that this announcement does NOT apply to this "New Stamp Release" event.  We want to see your fabulous creations featuring ALL of our stamps for this one ;0)
 
We have decided to lift our LCD/CV stamps only restriction for Skellie-Fest as well as our current #13 Numbers Challenge!  You can now use ANY stamp companies on your entries!  However, of course we want you to use our stamps so if you do use only LCD/CV stamps then your entry will count as two and double your chances at winning the prizes!
All other Event and Challenge Rules still apply!
