National Stamping Month #30yearsofhappy Blog Hop!

Welcome to our hop!

If you arrived from Haley's Blog, then you are on the right path!  This hop is a big circle, so keep on going!  You can find the entire line-up of talented Close to My Heart Consultants on Melinda's Blog.

September is National Stamping month!  We are celebrating over at Close to My Heart with a very special new My Acrylix set that you can't buy...but you CAN get it for FREE!  Take a peek at what I did with #30yearsofhappy...

I combined the HAPPY papers of Confetti Wishes with my very own pattern paper made with one of the little stamps!  I made sure to stamp the pattern on an area bigger than I needed so that I could trim out the piece of CS just how I liked it...

It was really easy to trim out the Happy Birthday sentiment from the pattern paper.  Then I placed it upside down on the backside of the teal glitter paper to draw an outline to fit as a mat...

Popped it up with foam tape for some great dimension...

And I even trimmed out some other images from the paper to decorate the inside!  :)

 Now you are off to Priscilla's Blog for quite a treat!  Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Remember, you can't buy this special My Acrylix can only get it for FREE in September.  Just purchase $30 dollars worth of CTMH stamps on my website, and #30yearsofhappy (a $13.95 value) is all yours!
