November My Monthly Hero Kit

This is my first month as an actual subscriber to My Monthly Hero from Hero Arts and the process was great. I got an email on the 6th (first Monday of the month) with a link to the add-ons and a link to a special sale section. As well as a code for free shipping on any purchases with my kit. The kits start shipping at the end of the week and my kit shipped from Richmond, CA on the 11th. It took a detour on Monday to a nearby post office but did make it to me on Tuesday.  The first thing I did after unpacking the box was to put the dies and stamps in storage sleeves. I cut the stamp set in half so it fits in the Avery Elle Large sleeves 
Nov kit + 2 embossing powders I ordered

I started playing with the large stamps and old embossing powders and as I was going to die cut them I found that the dies are not the size of the stamps and since I didn't want 1/8th-ish white borders around each ornament I fussy cut them, which was easy since it was embossed. I used foam tape to pop them off the page and then read through all the small greeting options. I did perform a little stamp surgery to make Joy horizontal instead of vertical. I stamped the words in versafine I used the white ink from last month to put a little snowflake between each word.

It fits my clean and simple style and ready to send out for Christmas season,
Thanks for stopping by; until next time. <3 Ann
