Hexagon Quilt

I spent most of August at our house in France, and as I have no sewing machine or crafty stuff out there, out comes my hand sewn hexagon quilt. It is growing verrrrry slowly! I like it because it truly is just made from scraps and off-cuts from other projects. I use a Sizzix hexagon die for my cardboard templates inside each piece.

More Sizzix Pop 'n Cuts cards

Another couple of cards I made before my holiday, using some of the new Pop n' cuts dies and accessory dies from Sizzix. The first is a thank you card for some strawberry plants and raspberry canes which my sister-in-law gave us. I used a round movers and shapers die in the middle, with acetate behind the window, to stick the strawberry to.
 A simple birthday card. I like the rick-rac die cut, from the newish Sizzix Hydrangea die.
An anniversary card for my Mum and Dad - this time with the Pop 'n cuts on its side, with a circular movers and shapers die placed on one side, to make the window.
