{TSOL} Hexagon dies! Swoon!

Hexagons are so fun and trendy right now.  Who would have thought, right!? Other than Geometry class, I hadn't given them much thought until they hit the papercrafting universe by storm!!!!  I was super excited when The Stamps of Life came out with the oh-so-fun hexagons2love stamp set, and the background set, background4bees.  Almost immediately after that though, I knew I *needed* dies to match. 

And of course. . . 
Stephanie was already on it!

Hexagon dies.
I love that woman! 

Here are three cards I created using the hexagon dies, that were just released on the 20th!

After I created these first two cards, I realized that I pretty much used the exact same layout on them! It's funny how that happens, isn't it? I totally didn't do it on purpose, and I didn't think I was even thinking about the first one, when I created the second one! Too funny! I like them both though, and it just goes to show that when something works, sometimes it's worth it to STICK with it. (at least for a while!)

I based this last card off of a project that I did when the hexagon stamps were first released.  It's a little box (that I created with my Scor-Pal) and a little 3x3 matching card set. 
See? On this card set, I didn't use the dies - but it would surely have made the project come together faster if I had!!!! 

And before I leave you now. . . one more quick thing! The winner of my crafty box giveaway, and the coupon for free Purex Natural Elements Tropical Splash laundry detergent.  
The winner is. . . . .
