It's time again for another Pals Paper Arts challenge! Join the PPA design team as they play with the new In Color, Summer Starfruit in this fun summer combination on August 2nd!
Hexagons are all the rage in the crafting world. I was really hoping that SU would come up with a punch or maybe some framelits, but not yet, hopefully they will soon. So, I made my own. It was easy, I printed off a hexagon template, cut it out, and traced my shape on my DSP and card stock. Since the cuts are straight edges, it went pretty quickly.
I used Patio Party and Summer Smooches DSP for my summer starfruit and real red. I used regular marina mist card stock and embossed it with the fancy fan, chevron, and the houndstooth embossing folders. All of the hexagons were popped up using stampin dimensionals to give me a 3-D look.
I had this great hexagon stripe going on, and I was a bit stumped on what to do for the sentiment. Out came my two new favorites, From My Heart stamp set, and the Apothecary Accents framelits. A great sentiment that did not take up to much space. Two itty bitty punches with mini brads just add a little bling.
Don't forget to check out the new holiday mini catalog, my supply of new toys arrives today, so look for new projects soon. Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you are inspired, enjoy!
