VIDEO: My Monthly Hero Release October 2021 Blog Hop

Welcome everyone! It’s time for the release of the new (affiliate links used at no additional cost to you) October 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit! This one will be bringing back all those ol’ time Christmas feels!

For today’s video, I’m going to show you how I created a window scene like I shared on the countdown. I also have a bonus card to share featuring the kit that is really quick and easy to make.


You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

Let’s take a look at this gorgeous kit!

This month’s kit includes Victorian Christmas-inspired imagery in a large 6×8 stamp set, and a gorgeous window die that sets the stage for the scenes you will create. Rounding out the kit are acetate sheets to mimic window glass, lovely jewel tone cardstock and glitter to add a bit of sparkle.

Kit Contents:

  • • 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set
  • • 12 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • • Window Shop Cover Plate Die
  • • 6 4.25″ x 5.5″ Sheets of Biodegradable Acetate
  • • 7 5.5″ x 8.5″ Sheets of Cardstock in Assorted Holiday Jewel Tones
  • • Prisma Glitter, 0.5 oz.

PLUS….check out these new storage pouches from Hero Arts! Starting this month, your kits will come to you in one of these large storage pouches. They are also sold in a 5-pack so you can put your past kits in them.

This kit values at $72 but you can purchase it for just $34.99!! Don’t forget – these are limited in quantity so once they sell out, they are not restocked!

I provide full instructions in my video so below I will list the main supplies used. Please refer to the video HERE for more details.




This card was not featured in my video but does feature one of the Add Ons that you can purchase. In case you don’t know yet, I’m a huge fan of background stamps and stencils, so why not combine the two!


I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! I have a supply list for the supplies used in my video and a separate supply list for products used in this blog post plus a few additional new items I think you’ll love!


NEW!!! We will give away ALL OF THE OCTOBER ADD-ON PRODUCTS, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, October 10th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
