Karolyn - Hexalongs

Oh my goodness – I got to work with the new Hexalongs (and I might have had something to do with designing these – eeeek!!)  The Hexalongs are a set of nesting elongated hexagons – super fun and trendy right now!  I used the two smallest dies to cut out several different coordinating designer papers and placed them randomly on the panel (some are popped up with foam tape for dimension).  The sentiment is from Salutations and it’s stamped on a Notebook Bracket diecut (just trimmed up to fit.)

 

If you’d like to win a set of Hexalongs for your own collection, be sure and leave me some love.  I’ll be choosing a random winner from the comments left here, and will post the winner’s name on Saturday, March 1st.  Good luck!

That’s it for me today!  Phew!  Two posts in one day – that doesn’t happen very often around here!  LOL  Hope you have a great day, and an even better weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
