TSG Sneak Peek -- Life's a Beach

(If you are looking for the Stampin B's challenge card look at the post below.)

Today we are sneak peeking a set called Life's a Beach. This set is fabulous for those who love to party at the beach......!!!! There are a number of stamps mostly related to beverages one would enjoy near the beach!!! This set is perfect for the Margarita craze going on right now!!!

There She Goes is holding a blog hop in connection with these sneak peeks. If you are already on the hop, you will now go to Jody's blog....a great place to visit ANY day, but especially for TSG samples. She is one FABulous stamper!!! If this was your first stop, you might want to go to Jessica's (the owner's) blog to get started at the beginning. There you will also find all the other things happening with this release party.

I have also listed below all of the Trendsetter's blogs, just in case you got lost along the way and need to go to a particular one to finish up. Remember, to be eligible to win the set of the day, you must visit each blog and leave a comment. Then you must go to Jessica's blog and fill out the Mister Linky info there. After doing that, you will have a chance to win the set being released that day.

You might also want to participate in the Release Challenge. Not only will you get to challenge yourself by trying something different but the winner will get their choice of one of the new stamp sets :) This month the challenge is all about shapes. Card shapes that is! We want you to think outside the traditional card sizes of 4.5"x5.5" & 4.25"x4.25" and create a card using a different size and/or shape. Some ways to achieve this is by using Nestabilities for the card base or checking out the resource section on SplitCoastStampers . When you have completed your TSG Shape Card, go to Jessica's (the owner) blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the TSG July Release Challenge Blog post. If uploading your card to SCS, please use the keyword TSG11. The challenge is open from Thursday-Sunday. Winner will be chosen on Sunday and announced on Jessica's blog.
