Very Happy about Happy Hexagons!

Hello! I received my Papertrey June release order today and it included the Happy Hexagon stamp set and cover plate. I couldn't wait to dig in, so I did! I cut out six different patterned papers from Melissa Frances with the cover plate - which gave me tons of hexagons to work with. Did I mention that I am a quilter? Hexagons make my heart flutter :). Anyway, I knew I just wanted to use the hexagons along one side of the card, so I lined up the negative cut out of the cover plate and set to work adhering the different hexagons. I really like the added dimension the patterned paper hexagons give the cards. The first card I fooled around with the small triangles on the ends - decided that was too much work after the first card. Anyway, with all those lovely hexagons sitting around, I went ahead and made three more cards. I used Think Big Favorites for the sentiment, and the medium scallop die for the bottom edge of the card. I sewed a small zig-zag stitch around the edge to continue the quilting theme. I just love how they turned out - hope you like them too!


  1. These are so pretty, Susan. I'm eager to get my hexagon set in the mail so I can play around with it. So glad to hear you're enjoying it.

  2. Your cards are all gorgeous!! Love the colors and card design. Got mine yesterday but didn't have time to play with them. I do think these hexagons are aptly named :)
