Memory Box Challenge #39- Surf and Turf (Nautical, Beach, etc)

Challenge icons

Greetings friends.  It is time to introduce another Memory Box challenge. We hope you will play along with the theme through the end of the month.  You will even have the chance to win prizes!  Thank you so much to everyone who played along with us for our rainbow challenge.  There is nothing like a colorful rainbow to make you happy!  We definitely enjoyed seeing your entries.

The winner of the blog badge was Trina P from the My Crafting Closet blog.  Her rainbow assortment of Copic markers to color the Watching the World Bloom wreath was absolutely lovely.  Trina also submitted her card on Instagram if you want to see her work at @craftingclosetcreations:


 The random winner drawn from all the entries was Jacquie from the What did I do Today blog.

Please contact me at stampjournal@gmail.com to claim your prize.

Want to play along in this month's challenge?  The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Memory Box stamp or die on your project and link your entry to this blog post.  You can make a card, a scrapbook page, a home decor item, etc..  To encourage participants with various levels of stamping experience, one entry will be selected at random to win a prize. Enter as many times as you want, but your name will only be entered once into the random prize drawing.   In addition, the design team will select their favorite entry to  be highlighted on the Outside the Box blog and that designer will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog. 

You don't have to have a blog in order to participate.   You can upload your project to any online gallery and link it to this post.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Memory Box product.  You are also welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Feel free to grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar.


Somehow half a year has already passed and it is already July.  Is anyone else spending some time this month at the beach or lake?  We want to see your nautical/beach themed projects to celebrate the Summer.  What inspires you for this theme?  Boats?  Beach scenes?  Shells?  Sea creatures?    We can't wait to see your take on the challenge.   Don't forget to include at least one Memory Box product for your entry.

Here are a few ideas from the design team to help get you started:
