Hello and thank you for joining us today! We are so excited to put on party hats and wear our finest to wish our dear friends from Hero Arts a very happy 45 years in the crafting industry. A remarkable company that we are proud partners with.
We had the pleasure of spending some time with Aaron Leventhal in January at Creativation (our industry trade show) to see all the new Hero Arts’ releases and to learn more about Hero Arts, their commitment to being environmentally responsible and being an award-winning Certified Green Business and their amazing beginning. Be sure to watch as without a doubt you’ll love Hero Arts a little more after you do!
Our friends at Scrapbook.com also share a great article on The Story of Hero Arts and we would love for you to take a few minutes to read this beautiful piece highlighting this special company.
Over three days (today is Day 2!) many of Hero Arts’ friends have joined together to create a pretty amazing celebration, including us! Be sure to visit each of the blogs listed below and leave a comment on them to be entered to win some fabulous prizes (listed below,) including 3 copies of our not yet released summer issue!

Scrapbook & Cards Today ( <—— you’re right here!)
To add a little more fun to this celebration, yesterday Hero Arts revealed their 45th Anniversary catalog which you can view HERE!
“In celebration of our 45th Anniversary, we are excited to share with you creations from the past 5 decades. We have drawn from the best of the Hero Arts Vault and have found designs which in some cases have been out of circulation for years or even decades. We’ve brought them out as a way to honor Hero Arts, our designs, our artists, and the wonderfully creative industry in which we have operated and thrived for so many wonderful years. We invite you to relive the journey with us!”
