Hexagon Thank You

Hexagons are a trendy little shape this year...well, they were last year too. I received the Hexagon Spellbinders dies and couldn't wait to make this card with them.

After creating my card base, I cut the white layer using my Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics.  Then, I simply cut a dozen or so hexagons from double-sided patterned paper, inked them and adhered them down the left side of card.  A simple stamped thank you finished the card off.  This would be a great card to make multiples of since they come together so quickly.

So, do you love the hexagon trend too?

Trick or Treat...Overlay from Want2Scrap

I am well on my way, already this year, to completing more layouts that I did last year. And with Overlays from Want2Scrap, it is not only easy but fun! Here is my most recent one...still need to add the pics, but I couldn't wait to share. :D

The Trick or Treat Overlay comes with a white background so I grabbed my Charcoal and Orange Glimmer Mist and created a subtle, misted background. Next, I grabbed some Halloween papers, die cuts and embellishments from my stash and set to work. To finish it off, I added some swirls from Donna Salazar's Build Your Own Bling and sprinkled a few Black Baby Bling Rhinestones around the page. Here's a closer view of the embellies...

So, I am you have a scrappin' goal each year?

Heartfelt Thanks

I had seen a card similar to this on Pinterest couldn't wait to try it out. I loved that it was clean and simple and I loved the random circles. So I pinned it to my want to make board and I made it. ;)

This card was so very easy to make! I simply created my card base, cut a layer using my Card Creator A2 dies by Spellbinders then cut random circles from that layer. Next, I cut the same size and quantity of circles from some patterned paper and adhered them to the card base. For the sentiment, I stamped then cut it out using a set of JustRite dies that is now retired. I trimmed a little piece and dovetail cut both ends and layered the sentiment on top of it. To finish the card off, I sprinkled some 72 Count Pink Rhinestones all over.

CAS is definitely my style and I love it even more when it turns out like I pictured it in my head. LOL
