Whimsy & Stars Studio - Bee Happy

Hello and welcome to the Whimsy and Stars Studio March blog hop.  The design team will be showing off TWO new adorable images, Spring Bees and Welcome Spring.   


If you arrive here from  the Whimsy & Stars Studio blog, you are on the right track.  If you are just joining us, you may want to start at the first stop on the hop, the Whimsy & Stars Studio blog, so you don’t miss out on anything.    Don’t forget to leave a comment at each stop for your chance to win!  Two random winners will win a digital image of their choice from the Whimsy and Stars Studio store.  


For my project I used the new image, Spring Bees.    Aren’t  they sweet?   My card design was inspired by an old Deconstructed Sketch.  I added a few layers, stitching, and some of my favorite October Afternoon papers to make a cheery card.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
