August Winners!

School's back in session, and we are much more prompt in announcing our August winners!  (Thanks again for your patience with July.)  Be sure to grab your blog badges soon, because the new ones will be rolled out for our September winners in early October.

As always, we begin with announcing our August Addicts, the high rolling players who participated in every challenge of the month.  Congratulations to...
*I Luv Scrapping Too 
*Jody Gustafson

Next on the agenda is our H2H Darlings, the winners of each week's challenge.

Aren't our Darlings, well, darling?!?  It is so difficult to choose the Top 10 and then it's even harder to narrow it down to one creative crafter.  Congratulations to our August Sweetheart...

Please take a moment to congratulate all of our winners either here, on their blogs, or both!  We look forward to seeing YOUR work featured at H2H this month.  What are you waiting for?  Happy crafting!

National Stamping Month

Happy STAMPtember!  Close To My Heart has decreed this month "National Stamping Month," and our challenge to kick off the month is to use a CTMH stamp on your project.  That's right, just use a CTMH stamp on something you make and link up.  You have the entire month to join us!

Our new Team Sea Glass is here this week to kick off National Stamping Month!


Now it's your turn!  Show off a handstamped creation by linking up below.  We'd love to have you join us!  Also, what do you think of your new look?  Please comment below!  Happy STAMPtember!
