Have I told you lately that I love you?

It is no secret that I LOVE My Acrylix stamps! I thought I would share a few reasons why I'm so crazy about these stamps and I can't see myself using anything but!

My Acrylix® stamps are clearly the best in the stamping industry, giving you incredible creative freedom loaded with possibilities. They are ready to use right out of the package—no cutting out, mounting, or applying stickers required. Just place the stamp on your block, apply ink, and you’re set! My Acrylix stamps and blocks are clear, making it easy to stamp in exactly the right spot.

My Acrylix stamps can be used to create a variety of popular looks, including:

· base and shade stamping

· creating your own patterned paper

· sponging on multiple inks for single-impression, multi-color images

Many My Acrylix stamps coordinate with Cricut® Art Philosophy and Artiste cartridges, giving you lots of creative possibilities. Cut the shape on your Cricut® machine, stamp the image on the shape, and attach to your project! In the Idea Book, the images outlined in red coordinate with Cricut® shapes. My Acrylix stamps are super easy to maintain, store, and transport.


If you haven’t tried My Acrylix stamp sets, I invite you to attend one of my events and see for yourself!

Yes, I'm still here...

It's been a really long time since I posted anything here. Life has been super busy with family, doctor appointments, volunteer work and a few challenges here and there! We are all staying strong and it is starting to feel as if things are felling more normal, for lack of a better word!

For the next few weeks I'll be sharing some videos from Close to my heart, new techniques and fun products! I am currently working on some small workshops and I hope you can attend.

Thanks for always coming back and enjoy this first video, an oldie but goodie :-)
