Finally home, but exhausted. Had to get up a 4:30am to catch a plane and then got home at 5:00pm. Eek. Happy to be home, but I had such a good time with my Hero buddies.
I have two videos complete and ready to go. I will load one up tomorrow and a big one this weekend. But in the meantime, you all must go check this out…
This week on Hero Arts’ blog, Aaron, our CEO, shares the history of Hero. And today he has a video of how they make stamps. You will be amazed! I love the peek into the factory – I always love being there. It is worth watching. You can find it HERE.
Aaron also talks about how the company started and how it is a family business. Also, they are a green company – so cool.
Anyway, gotta go to bed. Hope that you enjoy their video! More tomorrow.
… am I exhausted! Was in Sacramento teaching just yesterday. Took a very early train to Hero Arts today (near San Fran) for meetings and go back to Sacramento again tomorrow early to teach some more. Have to do the Powerpoint presentation tonight. Shh… don’t tell my boss that I haven’t done it yet. Hee.
However, I loved the train ride and spent it looking out the window lots while editing video. Hope to put one up Wednesday. No time to load it tonight, but I thought I would share some old cards instead. I promise to share more scrapbooking again soon.
Here are two collage cards I made back in the fall. I love love love the collage look but have a hard time doing it. But sometimes I get the itch and love to pretend I am the amazing Shari Carroll and try it. You can see her much more amazing cards using this stamp HERE.
This first one is another example of colored pencils on Kraft. Love the white pencil…

Sorry for the delay in announcing the winners. Ran out of time before leaving on my trip. In Sacramento now… and I really love it here. This is one of my favorite shows – the Joan Mills rep show. It is in a great part of the city with lots of restaurants, etc. Great people here, too.
Anyway… the winners! Here they are…

Going to work on a video tomorrow afternoon between classes. In the meantime, a quick card share. Love using colored pencils on Kraft paper.
I would love to pass some of these along… I will do two drawings from anyone who posts a comment here – each person will get 5 sets. Just leave the commenton this post by tomorrow at 11:59pmEDT and I will pick the next day.
Hi there! Today’s video shares a faux detailed letterpress technique. I haven’t done this technique in awhile, but it is definitely a favorite of mine. [All supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails …
