Product Highlight – Stamp Scrubber

Learn how to use the My Acrylix® stamp scrubber from Close To My Heart to clean My Acrylix® stamp sets and keep them in tip-top shape.

This is my favorite stamp cleaner out of a number that I have tried.  Use the My Acrylix Spritz Cleaner with the My Acrylix® stamp scrubber for easy stamp cleaning.  If you are doing a lot of stamping, you don’t need to spray every stamp because your scrubber will already be wet.  Let the stamp air dry for a few seconds before putting it back on the carrier sheet.

Product Highlight – My Acrylix Blocks

Close to My Heart has a variety of different size acrylic blocks.  These are the base for all your stamps.  As you browse the Idea Book, the recommended block sizes are given for each stamp set.  You will want to use a block that is closest to your stamp size for the best results.

1″ × 1″ My Acrylix Block $3.95
1″ × 3½” My Acrylix Block $5.95
2″ × 2″ My Acrylix Block $6.50
2″ × 3½” My Acrylix Block $7.50
2″ × 6½” My Acrylix Block $9.95
3″ × 3″ My Acrylix Block $8.50
4″ × 5″ My Acrylix Block $15.95

I recommend the My Acrylix Starter Kit for beginners.  It includes one each of our most versatile block sizes:  2″ × 2″, 3″ × 3″, and 2″ × 3½”.
