Can you believe it, we are already moving into the 1st full week of 2020! I’m kicking things off with my Bee Happy Sampler. It’s just too cute and what better message for the upcoming year.

As soon as I saw this bundle, I knew I would love giving it a play. My WOW Club Member, Connie, is having a party this week. Because Connie is an avid scapbooker, I wanted to design something she could use in that part of her crafting. Hence, the Bee Happy Sampler was born.

Stampin’ Up’s product coordination is the best. The Honey Bee bundle in the new Mini coordinates perfectly with the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper offered in the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

In the second block, of my Bee Happy Sampler, I wanted to create a little bee hive scene. One of the best parts of creating samplers is that the blocks can also be used and adapted into cards. And did you notice the texture in the background. I created that with the new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder. Love!!

Ok, those bees are just too beautiful. Because I spritz them with Champagne Shimmer Mist, they sparkle and shine.

To create the “sunshine” background, I used a sponge brayer loaded with Crushed Curry ink. That’s a quick and easy technique. The letters, cut with the dies from the Hand Lettered Prose set, were also spritzed. I love the sparkle.

Because I’m still recuperating from my recent nasty fall, I couldn’t film a video for my Bee Happy Sampler.  But, I did peck away at the keyboard to give you a very detailed PDF. Hope you can enjoy this and create a Bee Happy Sampler of your very own.
