September My Monthly Hero Countdown + Giveaway: Day 1

Sep 01, 2023 Hero Arts

Hello and happy September, friends! Seasons change but one constant around here is our favorite way to welcome a new month – with a My Monthly Hero countdown party, of course. And we're so excited to get this one started! We do want to let you know about a slight change to our typical launch schedule this month. Due to the Labor Day holiday on Monday, the new kits and add-ons will be revealed and make their grand entrance on Tuesday, September 5 at 1:00 pm Eastern/10:00 am Pacific.

We're also giving a kit away! Before we get to that, let's take a look at four amazing cards from the Creative Team. We invite you to visit each of their blogs (linked below), where they are sharing additional details.

Project #1 created by Mindy Eggen (Classic Kit)
Click HERE to visit her blog for more details.

Project #2 created by Channin Pelletier (Premium Kit)
Click HERE to visit her blog for more details.

Project #3 created by Dana Joy (Classic Kit)
Click HERE to visit her blog for more details.

Project #4 created by Ilina Crouse (Premium Kit)
Click HERE to visit her blog for more details.

The Classic and Premium Kits are both filled with endless creative possibilities for all sort of occasions! The team will be back to share more peeks on Saturday and Sunday, so we hope to see you back here throughout the weekend.

New this month! We had so much fun at the Pre-launch Party for the holiday release, we've decided to do it again! Join us on Monday night, September 4th, at 8pm ET - live on our YouTube channel or Facebook page - for an early look at this month's release! We will walk you through the products, sharing card samples and inspiration. We have never revealed a kit prior to launch in all of our years of offering My Monthly Hero kits, so we are pretty excited for you to tune in! We've also created a printable checklist for you to download and use for creating your shopping list while you watch. We hope you'll join us Monday night!

WIN A KIT BEFORE YOU CAN BUY IT: Just leave a comment on this (and every) Countdown to Creativity post. We’ll randomly draw one lucky winner from comments left across all countdown posts on the Hero Arts blog. The winner will be announced first thing Tuesday morning, September 5, before the kit launches at 10:00 am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win. Good luck!

Happy stamping,
