Have you notice how popular this geometric shape is? I for one love this trend but the sad thing I am having a hard time finding stuff with it. The current Friday challenge over at Frosted Designs is to use Hexagons. Since I knew for me it was going to be a challenge just to find the beloved pattern in my stash, I almost past up this challenge. At last I found a 2 inch scrap of brown pattern paper by American Crafts. I came up with this birthday card for my brother. I used CPS card sketch #262 Part 1.
Supplies: Washi tape (Target) Pattern papers: American Crafts, Basic Grey,Simple Stories) Accents: Scenic Route, Basic Grey) Baker's Twine (My Mind's Eye) Stickers: Glitz Designs) Stamp: (EK Success) Other: blank ink, hole punch and tickets

Easter Blog Hop

 If you didn't arrive here from Emily's blog then go back to Jordan's blog to start from the beginning. She will have the list of all the blogs to visit in this hop.

Welcome to the color Green.I picked this color because I thought it would be challenging to create an Easter page without making it look like something from St. Patrick's Day.
I needed some help with the design so I used this sketch from the Paper Bakery. 
Supplies: Coredinations, American Crafts, K & Company, Scenic Route, Simplicity, My Minds Eye, EK Success, the frame and ribbon I don't know the names of the manufacture. 
Your next stop is Heather M she has the color Violet.

You know how I love to use items that would have been trashed and turn them into something new.
As you can see I have used leftover flooring materials to created these cute home items.
So when I saw the challenge over at Frosted Designs. I knew I wanted to participate in it.
I used an embellishment package on the first tag. I stamped the circle tag that is behind the "One of a Kind" sticker.
If you want to see some more of my items that are made from reclaimed items check out my store.
