A Hero Arts Retailer

With Much Sadness…

As many of you know, a2z scrapbooking was founded to raise awareness & funds for celiac and behcets diseases. One of our founders and volunteers, Linda Crissman, suffered from behcets herself for many years. It is with deep sadness that I’m here today to let you know of her passing.

Linda courageously battled the side effects of this horrible disease for many years, continuing her work here at a2z despite her condition, because she was passionate about both the cause and paper crafting in general. She loved Hero Arts products, her favorite part of her work her was doing the product ordering and browsing the new catalogs. She loved scrapbooking, and making scrapbook gifts for her friends and family. She loved her friends and family.

She passed peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends & is being laid to rest today in her hometown. Memorial contributions may be made in her honor to American Behcet’s Disease Association – ABDA, PO Box 80576, Rochester, MI 48308 or http://www.behcets.com, you can read Linda’s full obituary here.

I know this news leaves you with many questions about the blog and store. We will ultimately be closing our doors. The store is Linda’s legacy and going on with-out her is too painful. Items in the store will begin being discounted in the coming weeks. We will be having our final challenge in October.

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support, patronage and friendship over the years.

Hero Arts Embossing Powder

Product Spotlight | Hero Arts Embossing Powders

Hero Arts Embossing Powders

Did you know Hero Arts has more then just their favorited white embossing powder? They have a huge spectrum of some really great powders, and we happen to have them all at a2z scrapbooking! Today I thought I’d show you some of my favorites!

Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder

First up is the Silver and Silver Sparkle embossing powders. Teal/Aqua is my favorite color at the moment and I love mixing metallics with it, especially this silver! The background was heat embossing with the regular silvery and my sentiment was embossed with Silver Sparkle. It’s hard to capture the subtle glitter in the embossing powder on camera, but the little texture you see there is actually bits of glitter and catches the light perfectly!

Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder

Hero Arts Gold Sparkle embossing powder

This was actually my first time playing with these two embossing powders, and I’m head over heels. The Gold Glitter used on the background is more like actual glitter than embossing powder, but melts perfectly to stay in place and not flake off. And that Copper! Look at how creamy and smooth it melted, it looks like dipped metal.

Hero Arts Gold Sparkle Copper Embossing Powder

 

And here we have a mix of Hero Arts Fine Detail embossing powder for the background, Clear Sparkle for the sentiment, and Platinum for the small accent strip. The clear sparkle embossing powder has small bits of holographic shimmer. Unlike the gold and silver sparkle that has more actual glitter, this is still a smooth embossing powder with the glitter inside! It looks even better over black card stock, come back tomorrow to find out 😉

 

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope this gets you excited to get out your embossing powders and play a little, or even, try some new ones! See you tomorrow for our July Challenge announcement!
