Whew!  That's a ton of information but I'm so glad that you made it this far!  I have several projects to share with you so let's get started!

Here's a project that uses the June My Monthly Hero kit:


The June kit is filled with fabulous beachy/nautical images.  I love aqua and red together so I stamped out the sailboat from the main kit in Strawberry Bold Ink on a panel from the Pool Mix Layering Paper pack.


The adirondack chairs have been stamped with Dandelion Bold Ink and the Palm Trees in Cup O' Joe.  The stamped aqua panel has been cut with the Tag Frames Infinity Dies.


Next up is a card that uses a couple of the new June optional Add-Ons:


I love the Seas The Day Seagulls set!  Those gulls are so fun!


I teamed them up with the gorgeous Abstract Wave Bold Prints!  It's been clear embossed on a panel from the Pool Mix Layering Paper pack.  See the 'sand'?  That the Sand Embossing Powder from the Main kit...so cool, right?


That's it for me, next up is the FABulous Clare Prezzia.  In case you get lost along the way, here's the full hop listing:

  7. This is my favorite Hero Arts kit EVER! I think that this is going to sell out in record time, so I have already placed an order for myself and my daughter. I can't wait to get my hands on it and play with it. The kit contents seem so well thought out. Looking forward to trying out the sand embossing powder. I love all the sentiments too!
