For 45 years we've been passionate about bringing you the very best tools of the trade. Our May release celebrates our history as well as YOU, our very crafty customers, and all of the hobbies you love! From stamping and painting to knitting and stitching, there's a rainbow of possibilities with this month's release. Because we say, when life gives you hands, make handmade!

This month’s kit includes:

  • 6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
  • 20 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • 2 Fancy Dies
  • Purple Sparkle Embossing Powder 0.5 oz.
  • Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink Cube

With this much fun packed into one kit, it's valued at $70. But it's an incredible deal at only $34.99. It is available in limited quantities – grab yours before they are gone!

In addition to the May My Monthly Hero kit, we are introducing several optional add-ons products, focused on more of our favorite hobbies.

First we have Handmade Happiness and the coordinating Handmade Happiness Frame Cuts. Keep calm and craft on, friends!

Next, some absolutely fabulous Crafty Messages, perfect for sending cards to your best crafting buddies.

Who doesn't love a good adhesive? Stick Together Stamp & Cut covers the greatest hits of sticky stuff - hot glue, liquid glue, glue stick, washi - we've got you covered!

Crafting Border Fancy Die with Frame creates a gorgeous frame - or focal point - for your handmade card.

Crafting Tools Bold Prints has even more tools of the trade, all in one fantastic cling background.

Tin of Brushes is a must-have wooblock stamp. You'll love displaying it just as much as you'll enjoy using it!

Attention all knitters! You're going to love the adorable Knitting stamp set and matching Knitting Frame Cuts. Bonus points if you're a cat lover, too!

A perfect background for the Knitting stamp set, or just in general, is Knitting Pattern Bold Prints. It will be great during sweater weather, too!

How about a little cross stitching, with no counting of your x's required? Yes, please! Cross Stitch Patterns lets you do simple stamping to achieve the look of hours of stitching!

You can also write out any message you'd like with this sweet little Cross Stitch Alpha Set 3x4.

Needle and Thread Confetti Die is great for all of you needle and thread-lovers!

And finally, a couple products you'll use over and over! First, One of a Kind Stamp & Cut is super fun for your cards, and even more fun for the backs of your cards!

And finally, the Wood Frame Infinity Dies will be picture-perfect on so many of your projects!

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

Ummm, I may have audibly squealed when I opened up this month's kit. No may... I did! You guys, this kit is so fun! I adore that it can be solidly used throughout the year. I send far more cards to crafty friends than I do anyone else, so this kit, and the awesome add-ons, are going to remain staples in my arsenal for a long while!

Crafting and rainbows seem to go hand in hand. Both bring me joy and make my soul smile. Today's project features the kit included heart shaped yarn ball and knitting needle dies. I am an obsessive crafter. I make cards, obviously, but I also love to sew clothing, quilt, knit, bead and basically to anything craft related to avoid all the boring and mundane tasks that life insists on. I am proud to admit I am a full fledged member of the Procraftinator Club! This kit totally has me covered!

Create this card by ink blending Ultra Pink, Lemon Yellow, Aegean, and Orchid Hero Arts inks on Dove White cardstock. The overlap in ink blending provides the secondary colors. Die cut the heart yarn ball into the rainbow panel and again into Dove White cardstock. Generously coat an A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") Dove White cardstock panel with dry tape adhesive and adhere rainbow panel. Nest white die cut heart right into place. Then fit the negative rainbow pieces into the heart.

Use a craft knife to make a couple of small slits on either side, and within, the heart to poke the Copic colored (C0, C2) Pebble cardstock knitting needles through. Snip the needles in two to create additional length. Heat emboss white sentiment onto Pitch Black cardstock, trim, and pop in place with dimensional adhesive. Complete by adding finished panel to a folded card base, and Voila!

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 May kit (or reimbursement if you have already purchased your kit!)
