This kit is valued at $70, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities – grab yours before they are gone!
In addition to our kit, we've put together a collection of fabulous add-on products to complement the theme of the main kit. You can almost hear the waves breaking on the shore as you scroll through these products!
First, here's a look at one of two new 6 x 8 HeroScape sets, which are always a hit with their easy layering of beautiful scenes. Waterfall HeroScape and coordinating Waterfall HeroScape Frame Cuts celebrates one aspect of the beautiful scenery of Hawaii (and many other places, too!).
And next is Volcano HeroScape and Volcano HeroScape Frame Cuts, celebrating the source of the volcanic islands, and one of the most incredible natural wonders. We had a lot of fun with the messages in this set, too!
There are several fun standalone dies this month, too! First up is Aloha Cover Plate. It is great over cardstock, ink blended backgrounds, or even background scenes like the Waterfall HeroScape above! You can also cut out or cover up the "aloha" to make it fun for any place with palm trees!
How adorable is this classic Beach Car Fancy Die?
You can build beautiful flowers and leaves with Hibiscus Fancy Die - great as an embellishment, or a focal point on your project!
Hero Lifestyle Luau Accessories pair well with our line of Lifestyle paper dolls, which will be available on the website with our 2021 Catalog release on February 17 (and you can find or request them now at your favorite retailers!). There are several fun elements in the set to use all on their own, too. How cute are the sea turtle, ukulele and drink??
Rounding out the release are three gorgeous new 6 x6 red rubber cling background stamps. First is Hibiscus Flowers Bold Prints, which pairs so nicely with many elements of the collection.
Island Fruits Bold Prints is such a fun background, and great fun to color, too!
And finally, Water Ripples Bold Prints - this one is sure to be a "must-have" for your stash, for any time you need the perfect water effect.
