Default PTI COVER PLATE HEXAGON DIE

I just saw a video on this die and love all the things you can do with it. Unfortunately PTI does not have the die in stock. I checked with them and there is no notification as to when it will be available. Does anyone know where I might find a similar die. Can you only buy a PTI die at PTI. Thanks.

You can get a Hexagon die at Classy Cards 'n Such -
Honeycomb by Cheery Lynn Designs

It looks the same as the one at PTI.

I wonder what the dimensions are on that one? It's a lot more expensive! I was waiting for the PTI one to come back in stock, and I found it available with last mont's release on the 15th, which is when I ordered it. I would keep checking PTI every few days, especially next week... I have a feeling it might be there for the release this month...

Yes, only PTI sells PTI products.

It generally takes PTI 3 weeks to restock dies, although I do not see an ETA for this particular die on their last stock update.

Thanks everyone for your info. The die at Classy Cards n'Such is free shipping. I am going to check out the shipping at PTI and see what the difference is. Problem is I was going to get the stamp set also. I have to think about this more.

Shipping at PTI is $7.00, or free over $70.

You have me curious. I do have the Papertrey die and love it. Would recommend it highly. Lots of fun. What video did you watch? I'd love to get more ideas how to use it.

Default Youtube video

Go to youtube.com and search for video called Happy Hexagons by Papertreyink. It is a long video but shows many techniques for this die. I tried to find it elsewhere, but I like the idea of the stamp set to go with it. I guess I will keep checking to see if and when it comes back in stock.

Personally, I would wait for it to come back in stock. Like I said, I looked last month at one point, and it was out of stock. Then when I went to order for the release (late night on the 15th) it was there.

Definitely going to have to check out that video!!!!!!
