Amy here to share with you a fun tutorial using lots of Wow products.
Here's the finished product:
Isn't my nephew adorable?
He didn't want to smile for the camera, but I had to record my husband and I with him on his first birthday.
Let's gather up some supplies, you will need:
2 sheets of dark brown cardstock (your base and borders)
6x12 piece of kraft cardstock (goes right in the middle of the base)
2 sheets of 12x12 white cardstock to punch large hexagons from
8 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock to stamp and emboss on
4 colors of Wow embossing powder (I used Sour Lemon, Opaque Pastel Blue, Cotton Candy, and Gummy Bear Green....don't ya want to run to the candy store now?)
1 Brocade Stamp
1 Border Punch
Creative Memories Hexagon Punch or use a electronic cutter to cut hexagons
Emboss your brocade stamp with all four colors of powder:
Punch out a bunch of large hexagons:
Next, take your embossed brocade image and punch out smaller hexagons from the stamped image:
Begin layout out your large white hexagons on the cardstock and adhere them down:
Add the kraft paper to the center of the layout and layer your smaller hexagons on top of your larger ones using pop dots to adhere.
Repeat on the bottom of the layout.
Add photos and a title (notice I changed my title for my final product) and add journaling.
Here are some up close peeks:
I've seen hexagons on tons of layouts lately and have been dying to try it myself.
I hope I've inspired you to grab your heat gun, embossing powders and create something fun!
Wishing you a wonderful April!
