Stampaganza Blog Hop

Today we have fun blog hop for you!  During the month of July we are celebrating STAMPAGANZA!!  This is the time to get ALL of our favorite stamps and save while you do!  During the month of July, buy any two My Acrylix® stamp sets at the full retail price and get a third stamp set of equal or lesser value free! Choose from stamp sets in the current Annual Inspirations or Seasonal Expressions 2, plus the popular Solos letter and number stamp sets that we've brought back just for July!

If you are not familiar with SOLOS, these stamps (letters A-Z and numbers 0-9) have their own stamp set . Solos letter stamp sets include large and small versions of the letter itself, plus additional words that start with that letter. Each letter also comes with unique shapes, icons, and frames. Solos number stamps include large and small versions of the number, plus variations of that word. For example, Solos “6” stamp set also has the words “sixty”, “sixteen”, and a “th” to create words like sixth. Just like the letter stamp sets, each number set also includes unique shapes and icons. No two sets are the same!

So.... this blog hop is all about stamps!! If you came from Lauren Moore's Blog, you are on the right track!!  Just look for the link to the next blog at the bottom of my post. That will take you to the next blog.  The hop is a big circle so when you get back to me, you will know you have completed the hop!

I chose to create something with a SOLO "f".  It's been a while since I've used a Solos stamp so it was fun to create with it again!

For my layout, I adapted one of the patterns from our Make It From Your Heart Vol. #3.  For this friendship layout I wanted some fun colors so I reached from my Whimsy Fundamental paper pack and pulled out the Canary and Crystal Blue pattern papers.  I created additional patterns for my pennants and Title using stamps from the Solo "f" stamp set.  Here are some closer looks:

Our Solos can create so much fun for layouts and cards!  You can even put them together to create words and Titles for pages!

You can purchase our SOLOS in bundles for great savings!  
 26 Solos Letter Bundles - $159.20 (reg. $258.70)

10 Number Solos Bundle - $59.70 (reg. $95.50)

After July these SOLOS will be gone!!

July Stamp of the Month - Highlight Reel

Welcome to the July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month's stamp is Highlight Reel. This fun stamp set has 23 images!! If you came from Sarah Devendorf's Blog you are on the right track! The hop is one big circle so when you get back to me you will know you have completed the hop! If you get lost along the way, you can see the entire list of participants HERE.

I see this stamp set as a Cover Page for a yearly scrapbook album.  Do you have a scrapbook for each year? If so, what do you do for a cover page?  I thought back on 2017 and remembered 4 major events that happened.  Those events will have there own pages with lots of photos and journaling.  My Cover Page for 2017 would highlight those 4 majo events:

My Husband and I took a trip to Puerto Vallerta (courtsey of Close To My Heart) in February, my youngest daughter got married in May, in June we moved and who can forget the Total Eclipse!! 

To create my film reel, I cut a big 8" circle in Design Space with smaller 2" circles inside out of our Gold Foil paper to replicate a reel of film.   My film strip is actually an image from our Artbooking cricut cartridge.  I sized it to almost fit across the page.   I cut this from Pansy cardstock.  

Whimsy Fundamental Paper (for base page) - Z3350
Pansy Cardstock - X5966
Charcoal Cardstock - X5953
Charcoal Ink - Z8231
Flaxen Ink - Z2842
Pen Pal Alphabet - B1539
Gold Glitter gems - Z3312
Thin Cuts - Stitched Circles - Z4181
