July Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to our July Release Blog Hop! We have been having fun playing with these sets and I know you will too!

Here in the USA, this is a big holiday weekend and I know many are busy with company and family events, so we're going to keep the hop real simple! There are no secret words to collect, no email to send to me... just a fun blog hop!

Here is what you have to do to be eligible to win one of the prizes:

  • Hop to each blog, leave a comment on each one.
  • Return here to this post and leave a comment here telling us that you completed the hop and left everyone comments.
  • If for any reason you cannot leave a comment, please give us the name/s of the designers you were unable to leave comments for... and you'll still be qualified for the drawing.
Here's the fun part! There are THREE prizes of WINNER'S CHOICE of ONE FREE SET, but they are hidden on three different designer's blogs! You won't know who has the prizes, so be sure you visit each one and leave a comment!

The Blog Hop will run from 8am Eastern on Thursday, July1 through 8pm Eastern Friday July 2. At that time the three designers with the prizes will randomly select their winner from their commenters. They will check this post to be sure the person they draw has left their comment here, stating that they have completed the hop.... and then they will give me the name and the winners will be announced on Sat. the 3rd here on the ODBD Blog!


Here is the order you should hop in to be sure to see each one. Each designer will have a link to the next person (as well as the one before them so you know you are on the right track). If for any reason one of the links is broken, simply come back here to get the next name and link!


So grab your favorite beverage, have a seat, and enjoy the hop!

What a wonderful blog hop. This set is so awesome. And, I loved all of the designs. Just when I thought I loved one the most, I hopped to another and fell in love with the next one. Now, I can't choose a favorite.

craftymom205 said...

Loved the hop. I have completed it and left comments on all blogs. Love the new sets.

Mary Jo said...

I think what the blog hop ladies did with the new sets was very creative

Cook22 said...

I enjoyed seeing the new sets and all those beautiful creations - and the opportunity to hop along early as we have to travel. I had trouble leaving a comment on Sandee's post, but I got there in the end.

Kay M said...

Great Blog Hop! I left a comment on each of the talented ladies' sites. Love all the inspirational ideas. TFS! :)

msfreida said...

What a fun, well-organized, and inspirational hop! After seeing each of these creations, I desperately NEED these stamps! LOL

Left some luv for each designer and can't wait to see what they create next! KUDOS to this talented DT!

Ginny said...

This blog hop was fun (but then, I love your stamps so of course it would be!). I left comments on everyone's blog except Lorelei's because I just couldn't find where to comment. I especially liked the bread basket set because I always need quick, meaningful gifts.

Maureen Russell said...

I've left a comment on each and every blog today and became more and more inspired by each one along the bloggers trail. I WAS suppossed to mow lawn today, but now all want to do is make cards!

Anonymous said...

What a beautiful stamp set you have created. Loved the Hop and the creativeness of each designer. I'm just amazed at how one can take the same stamp, yet create a different card.
I have left a comment for each designer and thanks for the hop. I've been inspired to re-create some of these cards.

I thought that this hop was the best one ever. There were so many great ideas and techniques shared with the great new sets. The bread basket set was my favorite...I haven't tried working on material yet.Thanks to everyone for preparing wonderful projects.I left a message on each blog.

Linda W. said...

One of the good things to happen to me this week is this blog hop. One of the few benefits I can see about not working- off with a bad knee. Sure can sit and do paper crafting. I got so many new ideas I can't wait to try. Left a comment on each blog.

PatS said...

This has been a wonderful blog hop. I visited and commented on everyone. Very inspirational. Thank you.

thestampinglady said...

What a wonderful, very creative blog hop. I had such a fantastic time viewing all the beauty with my morning cup of coffee. We just harvested our wheat, so seeing the wheat used often just brought a smile to my face. Job well done everyone!

Kris Turner said...

Another inspirational blog hop! I was so inspired by each one and commented to each. Thank you so much!

Donna Moore said...

This was so much fun, thank again this month for delighting each of us with wonderful creations with your outstanding stamps! I enjoyed each dt members eye candy and am totally convinced that there is a stamp set out there calling my name!! :)

Johna said...

Enjoyed sitting back with my diet coke and hopping away! Did have a problem leaving a comment on Sandee. Thought it was funny there were no other comments there and then I couldn't get mine to post. So, I have completed the blog hop! Enjoyed it!

redhatstamper said...

I am not good with leaving comments because I do not know much about the google stuff. I have visted the following blogs: Angela, Becca, Grace, Sandee, Julie, Randi, Debi, Chris, Connie, Dawn, Kathy. I could not get on Lorielie. I love the ideas and everything is so inspirational. I love just getting my mind ready for the day this way. I will have to do it everyday. Thanks.

Yelowflower said...

this was fun, the talent in this hop is amazing!

unable to leave comments on the following blogs:

Dawn - a new day
Twinkles glow with stamps
Simply southern Sandee
Mcstampin dusk til dawn

thank you for hosting it, it was fun

Judith Tetley said...

I visited; Angie, Dawn, Kathy, Chris, Becca, Grace, Sandee, Julie, Randi, Debi, Lorelie and Connie and feel humbled by the way they have combined the lovely bible verses with both elegance and rustic charm. The simplicity of their work left me with powerful messages from your lovely range of stamps. Congratulations to all.

What a great way to start the morning! Loved all of the cards. They were all so different: a beautiful reminder of how we are each created differently, yet all are in essence the same...none of us can live by Bread alone, we need the Word of God! Thanks!

Colorado said...

Really enjoyed the blog hop! I went to every blog on the list and left a comment, but couldn't leave one on Sandee's blog. I noticed all the other blogs had 40-some to 50-some comments, but her's was still at zero, so don't we love technical difficulties! LOL!! Her card was so gorgeous... so sorry she's not receiving the comments she deserves today for her wonderful work!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my very first blog hop. I've left a comment on each blog, in fact I've left two on Sandee's blog as I hadn't realised that it had to be verified first. I thought that I must have hit a wrong button somehow. Your design team is an absolute inspiration and your stamps are gorgeous. Congratulations to everyone

This was soooo much fun. You really don't appreciate the stamps to the fullest until you see them used in such beautiful and creative ways. Thank you for an evening of real pleasure as I opened each design members blog. These blog hops do more than just sell the stamps. I feel the love and inspiration of each designer in every picture and feel that I shared something special with each one of them. Thank you.

I was able to hop to all the blogs and leave a comment successfully. Only one I believe 'Sandee's' said that my comment would be posted upon approval.

This is the first hop I've been a part of and what I take from it is the different applications that can be seen using the same tools. Great imaginations! Good luck to everyone!

I recently found ODBD through Lorelie's blog, and found the hop today while "visiting" her. I'd checked out the ODBD site, but not all the designers (until now).

What a wonderfully talented group of designers. I am impressed, inspired, and uplifted. This hop was a blessing for me, thank you!!

Marisa said...

I love the stamps that you come out with. Reminds me of my school days in my Catholic school and all the verses in the Bible. You have very talented members of your design team. And I have visited all their blogs and left comments.

Couldn't find where to post a comment at Sandee's.
Used up too much time searching her blog for where to comment. I'm new at this.

scrapmaniac247 said...

Another fantastic blog hop from the ODBD team. I am sure I fiished t late to be in the drawing, but I had to omplete it and stop and stare at each blog........they inspire me so much. Just didn't have time to get on the trail sooner. Love this team, love the stamps and love Kellie, Rick and Josh too. LOL
