Paper Issues - Honey Bee

May 27, 2012

The new theme for Paper Issues is up, and for this theme, I got to work with this awesome kit from Cassie - Bees Love Cantaloupe - made up of My Mind's Eye papers, white and kraft cardstock, snug hug binding, twine and diecuts.

I loved this kit so much. I made 3 layouts all from this kit.

This first layout I relied heavily on my Silhouette machine. I used the dresden pattern shape found here. I cut out the pattern pieces using several different patterned papers and then mix them up and put them back together. I added some stitching around the edges with the twine to make them pop!




This layout is one of my new favorites, probably because this is one of my favorite pictures from our wedding. On this page I did some fussy cutting. I cut out the hexagons from this paper for a border. I also cut out the cluster on this paper, added some stitching and some diecuts from the the kit to recreate a 3D embellishment. I embossed some naked chipboard letters with white Zing embossing ink from American Crafts. (amazing stuff)





For my final layout, I used a sketch from Studio Calico on NSD. I misted the white cardstock from the kit with Studio Calico Mr. Huey colors, Cameo and Dewey. Both colors go great with this kit! I added a piece of 6x6 grey stripe paper to back my picture.



Now as usual with Paper Issues Blog Hops, Cassie is offering the blue version of the kit - Boys are Sweet, Too - up for grabs, Just make sure you leave a comment on the Paper Issues Blog for a chance to win!
