My Monthly Hero Blog Hop • June



Happy Monday everyone!

Today is the release day for the MMH kit of June!  This new fantastic kit will be available TODAY June 6th  at 1pm (Eastern time) at the Hero Arts store. Be aware that this kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone.

This month’s kit has a fun travel theme that contains: A luggage tag die (die size 8 1/4″ x 2 5/8″, finished tag 4 1/8″ x 2 5/8″), Seven accessory dies (heart, camera, sunglasses, sunshine, geotag, suitcase, airplane), A 4×6 clear stamp set, Two half sheets of Sizzix tan Paper Leather, Three geotag clips, Airmail stripe wash tape, Journal, Three map hearts, Airmail twine, Clear tag holders. Check it out:


There is  also 1 optional add-on which is a 4×6 clear stamp set called Luggage Tag Alphabet:

I also want to mention that leather paper packs are currently  being sold at the Hero store in different colors (these paper is super fun! Please click here to see them.

So, for today I made a couple of tags using some of the kit products:


For both of these tags I used the tag die. On the blue one, I also used the inner rectangle that comes with the kit to make the window.  I took advantage of the white side of the blue layering paper to stamp the sentiment with Strawberry Hybrid link. I also die cut the heart shape and adhered it with a foam square.


On the red layering paper tag, I stamped  the Glasses Bold Prints  as a background for the tag with Strawberry Hybrid link. Then, I stamped the sentiment with Intense Black Ink. I die cut the sunglasses using black layering paper and from Snow layering paper.  I only used the white tiny glare shape to inserted into the black shape keeping it on place with a little piece of tape on the back. After that, I adhered the glasses with a couple of small foam squares. To finished off the tags I added stitches, Glossy accents, and bakers twine.

 As part of this release, Hero Arts is giving away one kit as a prize to one blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Here is the list of bloggers so you can get lots of inspiration:
