When I saw the add ons to the new My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts I immediately knew I wanted to indulge my love of gardening with a Victorian potting shed scene with a hint of Beatrix Potter bunnies. Today’s post is part of a blog hop to celebrate the kit release (more details below), but for now lets take a closer look at the kit and the add-ons. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post.

VICTORIAN POTTING SHED
OK, back to my potting shed! I cut a couple of seed packets from kraft card and on the first I stamped the lovely ‘Heirloom Seeds’ from Produce And Seeds straight on to the packet in black ink. I paired it with the Parsley image and word from Fresh Herbs. For the second seed packet I stamped the frame from Produce And Seeds on Ivory card with a touch of old book paper attached. I then stamped the sage image and word from Fresh Herbs, trimmed the frame out and adhered to the packet. I wrapped twine around the packet and tucked in a little rosemary.
I used the old book paper again to line the seed packets too. I couldn’t resist the cute tea drinking bunny of the Welcome Home set and so in keeping with the seed packets I’d made so far I stamped the rabbit twice; once on kraft card and once on Ivory. I added a little more book paper and trimmed in to a tag shape. I cut the hole using a Martha Stewart punch and then looped with twine.
For the card I started with a kraft card base and layered a Stitched Rectangle of Ivory card with a piece of the kit hessian firmly attached with large glue dots. I used the Produce And Seeds frame in black ink again with more book paper and added berries and a punny sentiment from the same set. To keep with the theme I tied a twine bow and attached it to the frame with a clothes peg.
I hope you enjoyed my walk back in time to a Victorian potting shed using the wonderful add ons for the March 2017 My Monthly Hero kit.
