My Beach House - Day 3

I loved reading all of your decorating favorites yesterday! I honestly got several great ideas to use in my home!

Today I wanted so show you some of the real inspiration for this set...

This is a knot thing I got at Home Goods, and it really inspired the different ropes you see in the set. You'll also notice a nautical feel to the lamp behind it.
I love starfish. Seriously we have them everywhere. Here are just a couple that reside on my fireplace.
I'm so serious when I say this set is so me! I wanted to share with you a set of cards I made using the set. They are simple and fast, and really a perfect gift. I know my mom would love these.
I used the large rope to stamp the background and one of the main images to create a focal point. I do want to point out the flag, has a separate stamp that can be used to fill in the flag, and several small sentiments that fit into it as well.
Now let's check out the fabulous design team!
Alice has shown just how flexible this set is! Don't you just love that banner. She has stamped the "fill" for the flag and created a banner. And I just love it.
Paulina has done her magic again and used You're Dandy along with My Beach House! Doesn't those rays look fantastic?
This card by Dana is just so fun. It's classic nautical, and that rope is just the perfect touch and so beautiful!

Thanks for stopping by today! We've got a ton going! Leave a comment on any of this week's release post to win this set. I'll draw a winner July 4 at 11 PM est.

And don't forget about our big sketch challenge! There is a $50 credit to the Practicing Creativity store up for grabs! Enter on this blog post!

Just two more days before the big day!

I love the trio set of cards you made courtney. The colors are great! I love the beach theme as well but I have no home decor like that up here in NY. I only get to the beach once a year. Oh I wish it was more!

I love this set! I grew up at the beach and the set reminds me of those times! Our beach wasn't the greatest (Galveston, TX), but (Destin, FL) is my favorite, and this set reminds me of how Beautiful it is there! :)
