Hexagon Wow! Tutorial

Happy Tuesday everyone!
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
Pop Dots

First Step:
Emboss your brocade stamp with all four colors of powder:

Step Two:
Punch out a bunch of large hexagons:

Next, take your embossed brocade image and punch out smaller hexagons from the stamped image:


Step Four:
Begin layout out your large white hexagons on the cardstock and adhere them down:


Step Six:
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.

Step Seven:
Repeat on the bottom of the layout.


Step Eight:
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!

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…
