Hero Arts 2018 Catalog Blog Hop + Giveaway!


Post 2 of 2 for today...click HERE for the SugarPea Designs Winter Product Release Day Four



Hello and Welcome to the Hero Arts 2018 Catalog Blog Hop!  The new products have been shipping to retailers for a few weeks now but today is the day that everything is available in the Hero Arts Online Store!  You should have arrived here from the very awesome Wanda Guess' blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Hero Arts Blog!

Be sure to visit each blog on the list and leave a little love - Hero Arts will be giving away three $50 shopping sprees in the Hero Arts online store, randomly drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Thursday, February 22nd at 11:59 PM PT.

First I thought I'd share some of my FAVorites from the new catalog.  There are so many new products!


If you've been following for any bit of time, you'll know that I'm a huge fan of the Infinity Dies, check out the newest:



These are super exciting and I expect that they will literally fly off the shelves, Liquid Watercolors:





I have two projects to share today so let's get started!  My first project features CM217 Safari Huge Thanks.


Do you remember when it was the 2 year anniversary of the My Monthly Hero Kits? The 2 favorites were made into stamp sets!   There are two safari sets that came from the one 6 x 8 stamp set in the kit:





My card also features CG729  Floral Mandala Bold Prints +  DI451 Safari Sunset Fancy Die.

My other card features CM235 Mouse Tea Party.



Eep!  This is my favorite set out of the new catalog, it's ADORABLE.  I teamed it up with the previously released DI339 Party Confetti Fancy Die + DI334 Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies.  This was a big hit at my last Hero Arts Class at Impress in Tukwila, WA.

That's it for me, next up is the awesome Lydia Fiedler!  Here's the hop list in case you get lost along the way:

Christy Q said...

*thud* I ADORE your safari card. This was easily my favorite MMH and I am sad to say that I haven't used it all that much. I just love the sunset you achieved and the gorgeous background you added with the mandala. I may have to sign up for MMH kits again as I took a break for awhile. Your partea mouse is just adorable, especially with that background and the green heart.

I'm with you - I love HA's infinity dies too! So many for a great price! I'm definitely getting the watercolors for my collection.

Lisa said...

Oh. My. That mouse tea set is adorable! And your card so sweet! Love that backdrop. And the safari card! What a cool die that safari sunset is! Awesome!
