I love the Happy Hexagons stamp set!!!!

I thought it would be the perfect stamp set for a layout of my son.Jump in July ~ Hexagon ~ Blossom & Snowhaven ~ boy layout ~  catscrapbooking.comFor this layout I used the Happy Hexagon stamp set C1596.  I decided to mix a couple of the paper packs which you would not usually think to mix together ~ Snowhaven with Blossom.   I also added the Honey from the Adventure Fundamental paper pack and White Daisy and Whisper Cardstock.  I love the way this layout turned out ~ so remember to think outside the paper packs and mix them up.

I used my Cricut to cut the hexagons from the Artbooking cartridge.   The title was cut using my Cricut Explore using Design Space.  I used Enviro and Ashlyn’s Alphabet ~ Block to create the title.  I cut the title twice so that the Whisper acts as a shadow.  Then to add a little bling I used the Coral Reef Sequins Z3042.
