ticket punch and hexagons

Two of the hottest trends this summer in the world of scrapbooking/cardmaking are Hexagons and Tickets. And if you are anything like me, you are probably thinking…WHY?!?!

So I jumped on the internet, and typed in the web address for my favorite search engine.  Much to my surprise, look what appeared:

LOL–Seriously!!! What are the odds that today’s Google image would include BOTH hexagons and a ticket punch!!!! I thought it was a fun coincidence 🙂

One of my favorite punches (the ticket corner punch) just recently retired. However, with the release of the NEW 2012-13 catalog, Stampin’Up! introduced a NEW Ticket Duo Builder punch. It gives you the option for two sizes, and it conveniently coordinates perfectly with several stamp sets in the NEW catalog on page 32-33.

While Stampin’Up! is always on trend, they certainly are not the only ones who have also embraced the hexagon this season, and you can read about them here.

 So, what are your thoughts? Are you ready to jump on the ticket/hexagon bandwagon??? I’d love to read your comments and better yet–send me pictures of the cards/projects you create using this trend!

Have a Fabulous day and Happy Stamping!!!

  1. I’d love to see a hexagon punch! And I just found an EK Success punch with 3 different size tags w/ticket corners!

  2. I think I’m going to have to see it used several times before I make a final decision. So, I’m on the fence for right now!!
