by Hero Arts August 05, 2019 91 Comments

Get ready to slay - the August kit is here!

Hear ye! Hear ye! Calling all brave knights and crafty maidens! Our August release is here and it is a fantastical assortment of fairytale products fit for royalty.

This month’s kit includes:

  • 6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
  • 17 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • 1 Fancy Castle Die
  • 2 5.5" x 8.5" sheets of Mirri Matte Lava Purple Paper
  • 2 5.5 x 8.5" sheets of Parchment Paper
  • 3 Glimmer Ink Pots (Gold, Purple, Red)
  • Dragon Scale Sequins

This kit is valued at $84, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities – grab yours before they are gone!

In addition to the August My Monthly Hero kit, there are several optional products in this month's collection that coordinate with the theme!

First up, the cutest little dragons ever! Plus a couple sweet unicorns, all included in Dragons & Unicorns stamp set and coordinating Frame Cuts.

For a more sophisticated look with the same magical creatures as above, there's Majestic Beasts and Majestic Beasts Frame Cuts.

If you're enjoying building scenes with the main kit, here's a really fun addition! The Build A Castle stamp set allows you to do just that - build a castle! And it has matching dies for even more fun. Use it in combination with the kit, or all on its own!

Your fairytale wishes will come true with As You Wish and As You Wish Frame Cuts. The look is Cinderella, but that "as you wish" message is pure Westley and Buttercup! And these sweet images are sized to work perfectly with the main kit.

How about incorporating some illuminated letters into your projects? The beautiful, 6" x 8" Fairytale Book Alphabet gives you so many possibilities for spelling out the perfect message or phrase.

Moving on to the standalone dies in this release - first we have the incredibly cool Paper Layering Dragon!

And how about this fabulous Paper Layering Castle? It includes a separate little dragon as well as fire to have coming from the dragon. Or you can leave off the dragon if you prefer a more peaceful castle.

The A2-sized Rose Bush Cover Plate die is absolutely gorgeous. So many fun possibilities with this one!

There are also a couple of useful Infinity Die sets in this release! Medieval Flags Infinity Dies will allow for some great layering on cards. Or how about a fun birthday party garland?

And Scrolls Infinity Dies would make great party invitations, scrapbook elements - as well as great features on your cards.

Another beautiful product this month - Stained Glass Window Stencil. Great for your fairytale scenes, or how about weddings, baptisms, and of course those travel scrapbooks!

And last but not least, three new 6" x 6" cling backgrounds! First up, Cobblestone Bold Prints. So many ideas for this one, from streets to sidewalks to walls. A perfect scene-builder for your stash!

Trefoil Bold Prints will add an elegant, regal look to your projects.

And what fun is Maze Bold Prints! Send someone a card to let them know they're "A-maze-ing!"

Love all of these fabulous new add-ons? You can Get Them All in a bundle for roughly a 10% savings, while supplies last.

Your kit may ship in a separate box than any extras and add-ons, but no additional shipping costs will apply.

Pre-order your kit today - kit shipping begins Friday, August 9th and continues throughout the following week.

Now let's take a look at a project Janette created with this month's kit!

Hello, Royal Creatives! I come before thee to shareth a simple scene building project  featuring several subjects of the kingdom!

Create this A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card by stamping selected kit images in Intense Black ink. Copic color and then die cut. Adhere images onto Fresh Lawn ink blended and layered ovals over a Deep Ocean sky to build a scene. Adhere banner overhanging edge.

The kit includes several sentiments that can be curved to fit on either of the included banners. For this card I chose, "I sendeth thee royal greetings," so that the interior can be personalized for a birthday, hello, thank you, or many other occasions.

I look forward to seeing what everyone creates with this kit! There are opportunities for love and romance, dragons and fury, mischief and mayhem, and so much more. Be sure to tag #heroarts and #mymothlyhero on social media so we can see what you are creating!

Thank you Janette! For even more inspiration, our amazing Creative Team as well as some crafty friends are hopping today to help us introduce this release. Please be sure to visit all of their blogs – and leave a comment at every stop along the way. One reader will be randomly selected to receive a free August kit (or reimbursement if you have already purchased your kit!). Leave your comments on all of these blogs by Sunday, August 11th at 11:59pm Pacific, then look for the winner announcement here on the blog the following week.

Janette’s card is so very cool & just what I picture when I think of Medieval times. A lot of thought & design has gone into this release, that’s plain to see.
I am hooked on some of the dies, like the Stand Alone Castle, & I’m loving the Old English sentiments which are just so unique & fitting.

That is such a great kit! It’s so well composed, even a jester. And of course I could’t resist the castles. Amazing! And even if it is off topic: your shipping (to germany) is well organized. So I just have to wait … but not for long.
