Cute Chick

Thank you for visiting Team KNK and reading this post!

The above page was created using a 15″ KNK Maxx and KNK Software.  The page title “Spring” was made with 1 Bean Sprout DNA font and cut 5-times, then layered to create a dimensional title.

The polygon shape tool was used to create multiple hexagons and then manipulate them to scale.  This same method was used to create a hexagon template in order to trim 4×6 photos into this shape.  Once the sizing was determined the contour object tool (.10) to create an outline for card stock photo-mats for the patterned hexagons and photos. The circle shape tool was used to create nine 1″ circles that I folded over twine to for my page banner. Two 5-petal flowers were made with the star shape tool and rounding mechanism.  The flowers were crinkled and inked with a pre-made flower and button center.  Lastly, I embellished my page with bling, text (font used: Agnes), pre-made flowers and a happy banner.

This same method recently to cut 475 hexagons for a layout class I taught earlier this week.  This endeavor would have been overwhelming without my KNK Maxx!

I keep my 15″ KNK Maxx settings at Overcut 15 & Trailing Blade 20 because I only use my machine to cut paper.

Please visit the KNK Gallery on my website to see more projects that I have created using my Klic N Kut.

  1. Susan, another stunning layout. I love yellow and often can’t find paper that is yellow so I was really impressed with this. I love the way the banner and hexagons turned out. Cutting your pictures that shape really makes them pop and allows the looker to focus on them. Thanks for sharing.

  2. What a lovely layout. The hexagons really make it. I like that they are different sizes yet go together so well.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous layout! I’m not a scrapbooker, but this almost inspires me to be one.

  4. love this layout, the color, everything, Susan. wonderful job. thing my Zing could handle this.

  5. I really like the flowers..the large ones especially, and that banner…a lot of work and thought went into this! TFS
