|shabby chic meets *the bright side*|
I love 6 x 6 pads of patterned paper because I'm a die-hard card maker and feel like this size paper doesn't create a plethora of scraps. However, inevitably, there are nice bits and pieces I slip back into the deck for later.
Credit for this card layout actually goes to my friend Wanda Guess, whose new favorite shape is the hexagon. I can't say I'm a polygon fan, but I do recognize the old fashioned possibility this shape provides...perfect for piecing a paper quilt using scraps of patterned paper. Boy, that's a mouthful!
To cut the tiny hexagons (they're about 3/4") I used my Cameo electronic die cutting machine and the Silhouette Studio software to cut about 20 hexagons from a 3" x 6" piece of paper. I used two different patterns to create the quilt-like flower shapes. And what an easy job it is to cut all those little shapes in about 30 seconds flat!

The quilt is the perfect way to put your scraps to good use!
