Poe Appreciation Day Blog Hop 2017 and New Stamp Release!

Welcome to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Greetings Portal Peeps!
Welcome to our 2nd annual

Edgar Allan Poe Appreciation Day Blog Hop

Last year the Mayor of Baltimore declared Edgar Allan Poe's birthday, January 19, an official city-wide E. A. Poe Appreciation Day and we decided to join the fun and host an annual blog hop.  This is a progressive hop that spans over 5 days which means new Poe projects will join the hop every day as more Poe fans play so check daily, hop all the blogs and leave lots of love💜
The Blog Roll is in the form of an Inlinkz link up and the HTML code to use in your blog posts is provided below!  Last year's hop was a huge success and we hope to see lots of fabulous Poe themed creations shared again this year so lets get on with the Poe show!


One participating Blogger will be randomly selected to win $10 in LCD/CV Bucks to spend on rubber at our Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda online stores!  Everything you need to know on how to play is below so keep reading!

We Have New Stamps!

To celebrate our 2nd Poe Hop we're thrilled to unveil some fabulous new stamps!
Joining the Lost Coast Designs family today we have
4 awesome Zentangle inspired Ravens in multiple sizes to suit all your crafting needs and a wicked cool 5.25 inch standing Skeleton!  Check them out on our NEW Page!
 We have lots of Raven/Crow themed stamps including a Poe portrait too, stop by and check them all out!

Poe Hop Freebie Special!

We also have a wonderful Poe Hop special for you!

*Freebies will be available while stocks last...we have lots to go around but don't delay, you don't want to risk missing out😃
How Poesome is this "Nevermore" text and Raven😉

How to Play!

1.  To participate you simply link up your Poe inspired projects at any time before 5 to midnight pacific coast time on January 23!
2.  You have 5 days in which to play and you may enter as many projects as you want every single day, the more the merrier😀
3.  Use at least one rubber stamp on your project then you're free to use digi stamps and collage elements!
4.  Stamps by other companies are welcome!
5.  Include the provided Inlinkz HTML code, see below, in your blog post to keep the hop going and share it with your friends! 
***You must have the link up on your own blog to qualify for the prize and keep the hop going so please don't just enter projects in the linky on this blog!
 6.  New and OLD projects can be shared!  Old projects are welcome except if previously shared in our 2016 Poe Hop.  Prior Poe Hop shares may still be included in the same post with your new project still, I'm sure new Poe hop fans will enjoy seeing them!  Check your previous shares in the 2016 Inlinkz collection HERE if you can't remember!
 7.  Please re-share old projects in a new post so our Poe Hop appears at the top of your blog and remember to include the Inlinkz blog hop code and our Poe hop details in your post.
8.  Mark your calendars for January 19, 2018 so you don't forget to join the fun next year😀

How to add the code to your Blog!

  • Simply create your blog post as normal
  • Switch to HTML view
  • Copy and paste the code into your post
  • Preview your post to make sure everything looks good and publish as normal. 
  • The Blog Roll Inlinkz link up will now be included in your post and you simply enter the hop by adding your Poe post URL to the linky.
  • Everyone hopping with us will click on the links as they appear over the duration of the hop and get to enjoy the fabulous Poe inspired projects on show!

Hi, I´ve just tried to make a post and include your link, but all that appears in my post is this: An InLinkz Link-up - not what I expected. Last year I´ve had no problems, so what´s wrong now?

bockel24 said...

O. k., I´ve found the problem, I just had to click on "preview"!

valscraftings said...

So pleased you found the problem!
