The ideas aren’t done yet!

  • Today I want to share another project idea using the NEW! Barrow of Blooms template.

    I cannot tell you the ideas I have spinning in my head for this one. I wish there was time to share them all. Let me just say the items you can package in this are truly endless!

    I decided to pair the NEW! Barrow of Blooms  with the NEW! Bee-Loved Set.

    Thanks for bee-ing my friend

    What a great way to say thank you to someone special!

    I used the new pattern called Daisy Days digital paper as my focus of this project, and it also inspired the fresh Spring colors!

    So going with the theme, my first choice to adorn the front of my NEW! Barrow of Blooms was to use the Daisy and leaf images from NEW! Bee-Loved Set, which was easily cut out using the My Bee-Loved Cut File. I kept the coloring of then simple, as to coordinate with my paper.

    I knew I wanted to create a bee-themed set so I could package up some Burt’s Bees products. I also added some Chamomile Team and Honey Vanilla Tea with 2 Honey Sticks!!

    I created my Barrow of Blooms in a sky blue cardstock. I used the pattern paper for my decorative layers. All sides of this use patterned paper, so it looks beautiful from all angles!

    As you can see I used the Border Builders Open Scallop © in a pale yellow to line around the top (inside) of my barrow. It added a nice, soft detail to the design.

     In the back I added my bow with my honey bee in the center, much like on my bag of treatlets!

    Now of course I needed a card to match 😀

    I wanted to keep it simple, so I think this achieved my goal.

    I added stickels to all the yellow on the paper, for a little bling. I always love patterned paper in the store that has some bling, and I found I could achieve that same look all on my own with one quick step!

    You can see some of it reflecting in the light:

    I used the same paper, and this time made my own daisies using the daisies from the Fancy a Cuppa? © set, and the stem and leaves from the Sensational Stems ©

    That sentiment comes from the NEW! Bee-Loved Sentiment Set.

    The honey bee is from the NEW! Bee-Loved Set, which was easily cut out using the My Bee-Loved Cut File. 

    I definitely have many sweet

    Well that does it for me today.

    You won’t want to miss tomorrow post!

    See you then.
