Inspired by Hexagons with Guest Elizabeth Heinz

We loved welcoming Elizabeth Heinz to the blog last week, where she shared how she’s documenting her summertime favorites, and today she’s been inspired by a shape in our June kit and extras to create a lovely 6″ x 12″ layout about best friends. Let’s take a look!

Hello friends.  I’m back to share my second project using all kinds of goodies from the Elle’s Studio June release, a 6″ x 12″ insert that will be placed into my 2019 pocket page album!

Supplies | June 2019 KitSummer Phrase Stickers, Hazel Alphabet Stickers – White, Summer Puffy StickersWood Veneer StarsBest Friends Acrylic, Beautiful Day 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Summertime Stamp, Mini Dated Stamp

My design was inspired by the cute hexagon shapes included in the June 2019 Kit die cuts. Since I needed them to be larger, I placed one on my copy machine and created a template. Then, I simply outlined it with pencil on my background to build my pattern. (Pretty old school but effective!)

Once I was happy with my pattern, the fun began. I flipped through the Beautiful Day 6 x 6 Paper Stack to find a variety of colors and prints to use.  

I knew that I would cut three hexagons in half to hold my journaling. I almost always do things in ODD numbers. After printing my words on white cardstock, I reassembled the shape. I added a white Hazel Alphabet Stickers numbers and stamped black stitching.  

I used the whole hexagons to add embellishments, including Wood Veneer Stars, Summer Phrase Stickers, Summertime Stamp and Summer Puffy Stickers. Then, I used dimensional tape to pop up three of them for added interest.

Next, I added the 4″ x 6″ photo of my son, Joshua and his girlfriend, Emma.  On the left of the photo, I created a flag to hold the date. On the right, I added a pink puffy heart sticker from the Summer Puffy Stickers.  

To complete my spread, I added the Best Friends Acrylic as my title.  I also used the Mini Dated Stamp for the sentiment inside my 2” Avery index tab.

I hope I provided some insight and inspiration.  Happy crafting!

My name is Elizabeth and I reside in Peoria, Arizona.  I’m married and happily raising two boys, Bailey (19) and Joshua (16).  I also have one affectionate pup, Bond. I work part-time at Midwestern University as a Standardized Patient. I pretend to be a patient for students going through their clinical rotations. When I’m not crafting, I enjoy hiking, reading and gardening. I’m PASSIONATE about writing my story.  It’s not remarkable but it’s MINE.
