I'm super excited to announce our Hexagon Guest Designer - Carina Lindholm!
Short bio: Hello everyone! My name is Carina Lindholm. I live in a small town in Sweden with my husband and our three children, Marcus 9, Filip 7, and Alva 5 1/2. I’m a passionate paper crafter and you can find me at my scrap desk making layouts and cards every chance I get.
How did you get started scrapbooking? I actually stumbled upon the world of scrapbooking back in 2004, I got curious and googled it and fell instantly in love. And the rest is history.
What is your favorite American Crafts product? American Crafts truly has so many great products so it's almost impossible to choose just one favorite. But since I have to choose I choose the product that I use all the time and that is Thickers!
To make your hexagon shapes extra fancy just mat them on cardstock and cut a scalloped border around them using decorative scissors. I also added some hand stitching around the edges.
