Pair-a-Phrase (National Stamping Month Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Pair-a-Phrase Blog Hop.  To celebrate "National Stamping Month" in September, Close To My Heart is offering a free DOUBLE stamp set with a purchase of $75 or more.  This very special Pair-a-Phrase stamp set actually includes two sheets of stamps in a single stamp envelope and has a retail value of $35.90.   The set includes lots of clever phrases and coordinating images that can be used for handmade cards all year, for many different occasions, or even no special occasion at all.  And the celebration starts on August 15, so you can take advantage of this "National Stamping Month" special now. 

If you have come here from Pamela's 'Reflections of my aRt & sOuL' blog, you are on the right path! With over 40 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this special double stamp set and other brand-new CTMH products on their blogs, you should be able to find lots of great creative ideas to use for your own projects.  CTMH released their new Autumn/Winter Idea Book on August 1, and there are fabulous new papers, stamps, and other products.  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!

Even though the Wonderland paper packet is designed for use with winter and snow pictures, it is used here with the cute bicycle from the Pair-a-Phrase double stamp set.  Markers were used to add color to the bike and the flowers.
Now "Hop" on over to Jean's 'Stampin' Maui' blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas!  The Pair-a-Phrase stamp set is only available from August 15 until the end of September.  The retail value is $35.90, and it is yours for FREE with a $75 minimum order of CTMH products.

If you get lost on the Blog Hop or find links that aren't working, there is a complete list of all participating blogs on Helen's 'Hooked on Stamping' blog.
