For today’s hop, the theme is “Stamps you’ve only used once” or for many of us it’s “Stamps we have never used”!
You should either be starting here (continue until you make your way back), or coming from Judy’s Blog.
I was thrilled when Close to My Heart came out with a hexagon shape stamp set, however I hadn’t used it yet. Many times the things I am excited about somehow never get used so I chose this one because sometimes once I use a stamp set I will remember it and use it more.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: My Creations Canvas Journal (while supplies last), Pigment Inks (Slate, Cotton Candy, Indian Corn Blue, and Smokey Plum), Honeycomb Stamp Set, and Noteworthy Stamp set (retired).
Tips: When stamping on canvas choose an image that is a bit forgiving because it isn’t a solid platform like paper. Use pigment inks and make sure your stamp is well covered with the ink. Press firmly and hold for a bit. These tips helped me with this project and it turned out better than my first time stamping on canvas.
Now hop on over to visit Shirley!

Supplies used: Fabric Necklace Kit (includes everything you need except a pair of scissors!)
I just love all the Workshop on the Go Kits and now Close to My Heart has added a line of wearable art called Base & Bling which includes this Necklace Kit. The kit includes:
1 – Sheet of Outdoor Denim/Twilight Dots fabric (from Sarita Textiles)
1 – Base & Bling Necklace
10 – Base & Bling Adhesive Dots; (4 sizes)
5 – Base & Bling Adhesive Strips
1 – Pack of selected Base & Bling Teal & Black Jewels
3 – Base & Bling Floral Accents (1 each of 3 sizes)
1 – Base & Bling Word Accent
You will have extras, including lots of extra fabric. It is a great kit at an affordable price.
In addition to this Necklace Kit, there are many other wearable options, including Hair Clips, a Cuff, and a Headband, as well as accessories to go with them. But don’t limit yourself to the obvious. There are many other uses for these items besides jewelry. I plan to make napkin rings with the Rings. You can add use velcro (like the Hook & Loop Dots) when you create your accessories so they can be interchangeable! And you can use all the accessories as scrapbooking embellishments. Let your creativity soar!
Please come back and visit my blog again as I will be sharing many new product projects throughout the next couple months, including an entire series on the new Cricut Artbooking Collection!

I finally got around to doing the Canvas Art Kit. This was so easy, I really should have done it sooner so I could enjoy it! Below is my version,very similar to the example. You can see how I made it work with my photo (LOL, these were before digital!) As my husband said “old pictures instead of old people”!
Supplies used are all by Close to My Heart: Canvas Art Kit, Liquid Glass, and Cocoa Pigment Ink.
I used Liquid Glass to attach all the items so that I could be sure they stuck for good. There are many different things you can do with this and extras left over to use on your pages or other projects. As a reminder, this Workshop on the Go Canvas Art Kit is 50% off this month! (no additional purchase necessary, while supplies last).
