Bee happy...

This month I was asked to guest design for Hip 2 Be Square Scrapbooking's April kit... it's a fun mix of American Crafts, Cosmo Cricket and My Mind's Eye products! Here are a few cards that I've done so far. Love the colors in this kit...so happy!

On this next card, I drew out very quickly the honeycomb pattern with a pencil and then stitched over it with machine stitching. I didn't try to get it to look perfect, it's kind of fun just messy like that with the loose strings and such. :) I cut the card shape around the pattern after the stitching was done. The bee journaling card was square, but I didn't want it to cover too much of the stitching, so I cut it down a bit and rounded the right edge of it.

"Berry Sweet" card... layered some stickers from the sticker sheet and made little leaves from the green cardstock...
On the friend card, I printed the saying on the Cosmo journaling card with my computer and misted a paper doily with Sunshine Glimmer Mist. I like to get the paper doilies from AC Moore in the baking section, but you can order them in bulk on-line too!
I'll be back tomorrow with a Pink Paislee project! Thanks for visiting! :)
