Good morning SCT friends and happy Monday! No groaning that it's Monday because we have a great week planned here and lots to look forward to! First though, let's start with this cute project…


Cute right? Didn't that chase away a few of the Monday blues? You can actually create it too. Yes you can! For a full tutorial, click here!

We're also sure our Day 22 partner will chase away a few more of the Monday blues. Today we're pleased to celebrate our friends at Hero Arts! Always a company we've loved we're excited to partner with them. We always know when the Hero Arts catalog has landed in the office…work stops for just a bit. Filled with new designs and often collaborations with artists who share new techniques in order to further the craft of stamping. And they do! From Color Layering to Ombre, antique flowers to Paper Layering dies, Hero Arts is well known for a timeless yet modern style! They've received numerous awards for their sustainable approaches and we love that. 

When we told our friends at Hero Arts how we take the month of August to celebrate all our partners, we loved how quick they were to celebrate YOU! They have loved how engaged our readers are and want to share with you a brand new product that goes live on their website today!

HeroArts_prizeThis prize package includes the following stamps and dies:

  • DI196 Paper Layering Snowflakes with Frames
  • CL983 Holiday Messages and Tags
  • DC169 Joy Stamp & Cut

Here is a sampling of what you create with this beautiful package…

For an opportunity to win this prize, please leave a comment below by September 7th! To those that have taken a few moments to thank each day's partner, THANK YOU! I love receiving the emails from them saying how much they've loved it. Sends such a nice message of support right? Without these partners, we could not do what we do at SCT so please take a moment to join them on Facebook (or their customer service email!) to give them a nice thank you!

We hope we've made your Monday a little happier with these treats! Have a great day!
