Welcome!  I'm so glad you are here! 

Let Stampaganza 2017 begin! Buy any two My Acrylix® stamp sets at full retail price and get a third stamp set of equal or lesser value FREE!  Other than the Stamp of the Month (already a deal at $5) and the  Operation Smile™ True Love stamp set (a fundraiser) Stampaganza includes ALL STAMPS  in the current idea books, PLUS  a collection of popular stamp sets that have been brought back just for Stampaganza!  Woo Hoo!  You can see all of the stamps at  

They are made right here in the USA, using state-of-the-art processes.  This allows Close To My Heart the ability to produce high quality stamps for you and me to use (over and over again)!  Yes!

So, let's talk about what you need to get started (or continue) your stamping journey!  When you get your stamps, just give them a little rub on your arm to "season" them, then you'll be ready to stamp away!  

The quality of these stamps allows them to be easily manipulated to suit your artistic needs. You can mix and match designs, or even stretch or arch designs. Woo Hoo!   "My Happy Birthday" sentiment shown here is a straight line stamp, that I simply curved to follow the lines of our jumping fish.  So simple!
Using these stamps in conjunction with the My Acrylix® Blocks make it possible to see exactly where the stamp is placed every time and to see whether you have even ink coverage on the design. Love this feature! This makes stamping so much more enjoyable for everyone from the novice to the most experienced stamper.  They are super easy and comfortable to hold and use, and will provide you years of stamping enjoyment. 

After using your stamps, you'll want to clean them before returning them to their carrier sheet and storage envelope.  This is quick and easy when using the My Acrylix® stamp scrubber and spritz cleaner.
Using this scrubber ensures lint-free cleaning of your stamps. The raised bristles help clean larger stamps, and rubber feet add grip and the spritz cleaner is specifically formulated for cleaning your My Acrylix stamps.   Years of creativity are yours! 

Our Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads are dye inks. Dye inks have a soft look. They absorb directly into the paper, allowing them to blend easily with the material. Dye inks are popular primarily because they dry quickly and blend easily. 

Archival-quality ink, Mini Pigment Pad Sets, StazOn™ brand ink pads, and a Black Memento™ Ink Pad are also available. See my previous discussions (September 2016) of inks for more information on how these interact with your papercrafting.

I will be taking advantage of Stampaganza this month, and look forward to serving you.  

As a reminder, this is the very last month of our Annual Inspirations Idea Book and Sea Glass, the Color of the Year, will be retiring July 31. I don't want you to miss out on something you've considered crafting with!  

Also, the exclusive July Stamp of the Month, "Storybook Alphabet" -- so cute -- is only $5 with a qualifying order.  Just another huge savings this month! 

Until next time --

Thank you so much for visiting!

I enjoy hearing from you!  Have a wonderful day!

Happy Papercrafting,

Gayle Piron
