My Acrylix® Stamps - Tips For Use & Care

Close To My Heart recently shared this video with tips for using and caring for My Acrylix® Stamps available exclusively from CTMH Independent Consultants.


This is a perfect time for Corporate to teach or remind us about the stamps available from Close To My Heart because July is Stampaganza.


When you purchase two stamp sets, you can get one of equal or lesser value for free. For this Stampaganza CTMH brought back the popular Solos.



During Stampaganza you are not limited to the returning Solos, but if you choose the Alphabet Solos Bundle be sure to contact me first – this bundle places you at the first level of Hostess Rewards. Choose from almost any stamp set in the current idea books (except SOTM, Operation Smile™ and stamp sets included in Cricut® collections).

Additional details about Stampaganza, including a Block Reference Chart for the Solos can be fund at my Time for a Stampagazna! post on July 2. Another reason it is a good time to purchase stamp sets is many sets are retiring on August 31st. Please see Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations 2017-18 Retiring Items and Close To My Heart Seasonal Expressions 2 Retiring Items to see which stamp sets are retiring; alternatively you can download a PDF (link opens in new tab).

If you would like to read more about a product or make a purchase, the Shop Now button will take you there.


If you have any product or promotion questions, do not hesitate to email me. You will also find me on Facebook at Brenda's Paper Crafts. I'm happy to had a chance to visit today.
