Product Highlight – Acrylic Stamps

Acrylic stamps are one of Close to My Hearts most popular products and understandably so.  Each clear stamp set comes in an envelope that is great for storage, a foam sheet that is used under your paper when stamping, and instructions.  To use the stamps carefully remove from the carrier sheet and stick it to an acrylic block. Acrylic stamps are easy to position because you can clearly see exactly where you are placing your image.  Close to My Heart offers a wide variety of stamp sets.  You can check them out on My CTMH Website.  I have tried many different brands of acrylic stamps and have found CTMH to be the best.  They don’t lose their stickiness and fall off the block and they are high quality.  If any of your stamps due seem less sticky (due to dust and oil from your hands) simply wash in warm soapy water and let air dry.  They will be good as new.

For stamping ideas, visit my blog every Sunday this year for Stamp Sunday featuring a different set each week.

NEW Valentine’s Layout for Scrap Our Stash January Challenge

Pin It

Supplies used: Doodlebug Designs paper and stickers, Close to My Heart cardstock, and ribbon and brads from my stash.

This month the challenge at Scrap Our Stash is anything based on the word NEW, so maybe a New Year’s layout, a new baby, or a new scrapbook product, etc.  I went shopping at the Mall of America on New Year’s Day (crazy, I know!) but I found this cute paper and stickers so that’s my new.  The layout went together quickly using a sketch from Scrapbook Generation’s Sketches for Scrapbooking Volume 8 (LOVE THIS!).  I was very happy with this layout and how I was able to use my new supplies as well as some things like the heart-shaped brads (remember metal is my stash buster this month!) and ribbon from my stash.
