Hooked on Hexagons

Hi & welcome!!  I hope you are doing well! We just returned from a conference in Omaha.  We had a great time and it was so good to be back in the city I went to college in!  I had a lot of fun reminiscing and touring the college I attended and seeing all the changes!  While in Omaha, we got to hear Alex Kendrick of "Facing the Giants" and "Courageous" speak (and got his autograph and picture too).  It was such a great event and I loved seeing my 9 year old son on the edge of his seat enjoying what Alex had to say!

Ok, on to the crafty side of things...

I love hexagons! I don't know what it is about them, but they are fun to design with and they catch my eye!


I put together this gray/coral card and it was a lot of fun figuring out where to put the pattern paper and how to piece everything together.  I love this patterned paper by Authentique in their Carefree collection!  Such pretty colors and pattern choices!


I popped up the sentiment that was stamped on a hexagon and in doing so, it allowed me to be able to tie my new Twinery Strawberry twine through the hexagon hole.  Such a fun and easy way to add a little extra to the card.  

This card is being entered in the Hooked on Hexagons challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  You only have a few hours left if you want to play along!  Thanks for stopping by!

  12. I feel the same way about hexagons; they are great to play with. Your piecing and placement of the hexagons looks wonderful, especially the top corner.
