Happy Family - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Good morning!
This months designer challenge at Elizabeth Craft Designs is using hexagons! AND ECD has two different hexagon dies to choose from!  The Stitched Hexagons (which I used) and the Fitted Hexagons

Here is my layout...
I wanted to keep it bright and fun and happy!



 To create this layout
Step 1 - gather supplies - one full 12x12 sheet  of patterned paper, and coordinating pieces of patterned paper (I used 7 Dots cotton candy dreams) stitched or fitted hexagon dies, happy (from the happy holidays die), Stitched rectangle die, adhesive and scissors

Step 2 - die cut 29 hexagons from coordinating papers in various colors and ink outside edges

Step 3 -  cut one paper at 3 3/4 x 12 and another at 3 x 12, and three different sizes of pennants and fussy cut an image from the paper and ink outside edges

Step 4 - ink the outside edges of the 12x12 paper

Step 5 - adhere the 3 3/4 x 12 paper then the 3 x 12 in the center of the page

Step 5 - adhere the hexagons in a diagonal fashion going from the lower left side to the upper right side leaving small gaps in between. 

Step 6  - die cut a rectangle for your photo mat and the word 'happy' and ink the edges

Step 7 - adhere photo mat and photo, pennants, fussy cut image (lower right side) and title to the layout 

Step 8 - enjoy!

Here are some close ups
