Welcome back 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!
Hello Portal Peeps.  
It's time for our new Challenge.
Our challenges are now monthly!  A new challenge starting the 1st every month, with chances to win Lost Coast dollars. We will be announcing winners on the 5th of the month, so do pop back and see who wowed the team and gets our snazzy blog badge and the coveted Lost Coast dollars. 
We have some *NEW* stamps coming to the Lost Coast Designs webshop.  The team is already using some of them but due to technical difficulties they aren't showing online yet.  If you are placing an order and would like to buy any of the new stamps then drop Linda an email at and ask her to add them to your order.   Hopefully they will all be available to view online soon.
Now for our new Challenge!



Let's kick off the festive makes with Christmas In July.  You have all month to share your stamped anythings with a Christmas theme.  Real rubber or clear stamping and the theme must be the focus of your project.  A small stamped sentiment in a sea of die cuts or digi images will not qualify to win the prize and you may be deleted!!!!  Bwahahhaaahaha.

Please read the updated Challenge Rules to ensure your entries qualify to win this month's prize!

You are welcome to play in our Challenges using rubber stamp images from any company but if you use any of our Lost Coast Designs or Carmen's Veranda stamps...we love it when you do...then you could win a bigger prize in our random prize drawing.  All winners get our snazzy Challenge Winner's Badge to proudly display on their blogs!

If you don't have a blog then no prob, you can still play in our challenges by sharing your projects from public photo sharing sites which includes our Facebook Company Pages for Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda.  Please include our Challenge info and the link back to our challenge in your photo's description!  As long as the privacy setting for your photo is public you're good to go.  See, it's so easy to join the fun!  FYI, you can't link up projects shared in closed Facebook groups! 

Here's some inspiration from the team to get us started.  ENJOY!

Gail used Lost Coast Designs CD Roly Jester, ATC Doodle Circles and Misc Words
