A Review of Close To My Heart’s Ink Pads

CTMH Paprika Stamp Pad

It’s always nice to get a review on a product.  It’s helpful when trying to decide if you should purchase that item.  And sometimes, even if you already own the product, it’s interesting to see what others have to say about it, right?  Sometimes you’re made aware of features you never even saw or realized!  Here’s a nice review of both our Close To My Heart Stamp Pads as well as our AWESOME organizational system–Workspace Wonder.

If you have any questions about either the inks or the organizational system, feel free to EMAIL ME.  I’d be happy to help!
