a2z Scrapbooking Blog's October Challenge

Hello! It's my day to post on the a2z Scrapbooking blog. Check it out here. The challenge this month is to use 2 Hero Arts hard products (stamps, dies, etc.) Click here to see more details about the challenge and to link to your project if you would like to play along.

Below are a couple of the cards I've created using this month's theme. I can't seem to put the Holiday Tree stamp and cut set down. On this card, I only used the dies and used the inlaid die technique.



On the next card, I used the Hero Arts Thankful for You set, the Hero Arts Tag Collage set and the Hero Arts Enjoy Today set.



To see more details about how these cards were made, go to the a2z Scrapbooking blog. Also, don't forget if you'd like to buy any products from the store, use the discount code, Kathy15 to get 15% off.

New A2Z Scrapbooking Blog Monthly Challenge

Hello!  There's a new challenge starting today at the A2Z Scrapbooking Blog. Be sure to check it out. The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the store! The challenge is to use two Hero Arts products on your project/card.

I made this card using the new Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Ornaments set. On this card, I used the ornament die only. I didn't use the stamp for the ornaments. And as you may know, I'm obsessed with glitter paper and thought that it would make great ornaments for this card. :)

The greeting is from the Hero Arts Merry Christmas Message stamp set.

Hero Arts & A2Z Scrapbooking Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to the Hero Arts and A2ZScrapbooking Digital blog hop! I'm so glad you stopped by! You should have arrived from the oh so talented Michelle Liimatainen's blog.

And here's the great news! a2z Scrapbooking is offering a $50 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking store. The prize winner will be randomly selected from ALL comments received on the participating designers' blogs. The more comments you leave along the hop, the better your odds of winning, so be sure to leave a little love at each blog, starting with this one. You have until Sunday, August 31st, 11:59pm EST to comment on each blog. Winners will be announced on September 3rd, so good luck!

Ok, on to my card now. Well, it's official -- I am officially addicted to glitter paper.  :)  For my card today, I used one of the new Christmas digital cutting files from Hero Arts. I used my Silhouette to size the background forest before cutting it out. I then used my Silhouette to cut the reindeer out of glitter paper. I adhered the forest to the card base and then used foam squares to adhere the deer. I used the Wink of Stella brush pen to add a touch of shine to the forest trees. I then stamped and added the banner greeting, along with a gold star and a little bit of twine, and called the card done. This would be an easy Christmas/holiday card to mass produce as long as you cut everything in advance -- just let your Silhouette or Cameo do all the work.  :)



If you are interested in any of the digital files I used today, see the supplies listed below. Also, there are several new Christmas stamps in the a2z Scrapbooking store. Head over there to check it out.

Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Lucy Abrams. Below is a complete list of all the designers in the hop. Have fun!
