Hero Arts’ Summer Catalog!

reveal_500

I’m so excited — I can finally talk about the Hero Arts’ Summer Catalog! YAY!  It’s been in the works for a while now, and I think there’s some really good stuff, like:

  • The Old Letter background — I’ve been wanting a stamp with BIG writing for ages now!  I think this will be useful for so many things, I have an idea to make something with shells sorta like something I saw at Anthropologie! Can’t wait.
  • Outline Magnolia and Stencil Flower — love these!  Both are so fun to color with markers, inks or watercolors.  And I’m blushing when I say this, but all of the cards on the cover of the catalog are by me.  Can’t believe it — my very first full cover!  Pinch me, is it really real?
  • Kiss the Cook is just too fun!  Love that smiling egg, hee hee.
  • Sew Artsy and Sew Stylish — what can I say?  Love them both sew much!
  • Another fun one to color is Delicate Blossoms. I made some cards for the catalog where I stamped it in colored ink and then colored with markers and pencils.
  • Then there’s the Large Canvas Stripes and the Graph Background — both of these are so handy!
  • All of the house themed ones are just too fun!  The House with Plant reminds me of the cute little houses in San Francisco, so I made a card for the catalog to look like that.  And wouldn’t you know it?  Mon drew the house based on cute little houses in San Francisco where she lives!

Oh heck, I love them ALL!  :)  What are your faves? Check out the catalog and let me know!

And!  I have a confession to make.  When I was a kid we called peonies “snowball flowers” — and my little sister and I used to rip them off the neighbor’s bushes, tear apart the petals and throw them at each other.  Gah!  What were we thinking?  I bet it would have made a fun photo with all the petals flying through the air and two giggling girls though, hee hee.  Can’t believe we never got in trouble for it.

Happy summer,
