PIN WITH A CAUSE

Hero Arts has a new pin available… saying “During these difficult times, a reminder that we are one world, in this together, and we are stronger when we support one another with friendship and kindness. Hero Arts will donate 100% of net profits from the sale of this pin to support COVID-19 disaster relief.”

You can find the pin HERE. (*I will be donating a portion of my affiliate sales from this post to the same organization Hero Arts picks. I respect and admire their generosity… and find it inspiring.*)

HERO ARTS KIT

This post features the April Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit. This kit is valued at over $80!!!!… but only costs $34.99. You can see all the details HERE. The kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone. And they sell out fast! The stamps and dies are not sold separately. (Remember that Hero Arts does have a subscription option with FREE US shipping and $9.99 international shipping in case you never want to miss out on a kit. Find out info HERE.)

Here is what Hero Arts has to say about this special kit:

Over the past year, our hearts have been heavy while we watched from afar as Australia suffered from devastating bushfires. With Australia on our mind we designed this month’s release, paying homage to the fascinating animals, the gorgeous flowers and the beautiful landscape of the land Down Under. As we release this, our hearts are now heavy for a new reason. But we are excited to take you on a much-needed crafty escape to Australia, as we celebrate this amazing country!

HERE is the kit. All this is valued at over $80, but costs under $35…

There are also many great new products available that coordinate with the kit. You can find them all HERE.

  4. What a fun card design. I have in mind a previous Hero Arts kit that I picked up and this design would work really well with it. Look forward to giving it a try once the project I’m working on is finished. Projects are building up on a now long list of things to accomplish during this time. I don’t know how I missed the landscape ocean set, but I really love it. That card and the koala are absolutely beautiful and fun looking. Thanks, Jennifer. “Let there be peace on earth.”

Thank you for all of your inspiration and please stay safe and healthy!

  17. My kids saw that I was watching your newest video, and they all crowded around me to see your latest creative ideas. Thank you for the inspiration. Now we need a die cutting machine… maybe someday.

  18. You are a master of fancy folds, Jennifer! I tried to order the Beach HeroScape Stamp set, but it’s already sold out! I’ll be ordering it later, because it’s way too cute to not have in my stash.
