It's Your Day! - National Stamping Month

Did you know that September is National Stamping Month?  Close to My Heart is offering a one time exclusive double stamp set to celebrate and it is perfect to highlight ANY DAY in your life!  Here is the GREAT news - You can purchase this double stamp set "It's Your Day" for just $5 when you purchase $35 in Close To My Heart Products!  And you don't have to wait until September to order!  You can get it beginning August 15th.  WOW!! Now THAT IS A DEAL!

Over 40 Close To My Heart Consultants got their stamp early so that we could show you different ways to use this fabulous set!  If you came here from Michelle Jones Blog you are on the right track!  Following the hop is easy. Just look for the next link at the end of each post.  Let's get started!

This is the double stamp set - you get TWO D-size stamps in one envelope!

I've got a couple of things to share that I made with this set.  First, is this little journal.  My daughter is in a sorority and she needed a little notebook for the girl she was rushing.   They use the notebook to take notes and various other things and it must be carried with them at all times.  I happened to have one of Close To My Heart's retired journals that has a protective front cover.  So I used this to create her notebook.



I didn't have a Greek Cricut Cartridge so I used the George Cricut Cartridge.  I just made an "A" a little bit larger than the other "A" and "K" and cut the legs and top tail off to make it a "D"!  I thought that was pretty clever.

About a week later, I wanted to create a layout using this set.  If you like doing the Project Life, this set is perfect for that! I wanted my layout to represent all things involved in ADK rush night.  I found the perfect sketch for my layout in our new Make It From Your Heart Book (9035).  I used sketch #4 for my layout.


I used Bamboo as my base and Sky, Creme Brulee and Smoothie Cardstock along with tone on tone stamping. The "ADK" on this layout is actually one of our NEW stamps - Greek Alphabet (B1411). I was happy to see Greek letters finally added to our stamps!  I also used the new Burlap ribbon (Z1760) and our Color Ready Canvas Alphabet (Z1777).

And last, I created this 4 1/4  x 5 1/2 card.   This was also from a sketch in our Make It From Your Heart Book (9035).  Sketch #19  I used the dotted stamp and tone on tone stamping to stamp a background on the color cardstock. Then I used the stripe and chevron stamps to stamp on the white cardstock.  I used Burlap Ribbon to make my pennants and strung them along on natural hemp.


I hope you enjoyed my creations! If you want to order this fabulous DOUBLE D set, visit my website and place your order today!  A minimum order of $35 qualifies to get it for $5!
