Echo Park Bee Happy Cards with Reneabouquets
Hello, Friends! These Echo Park Bee Happy cards are a result of a free play day that I gave myself. Sometimes, I just have to create for the sheer fun of it: no deadlines, no tutorials, no design team assignments. Just fun. And after I finished that massive How to Make a Mini Album tutorial, I really needed to just relax and enjoy the creative process. Do you ever feel that way?
We’ve had loads of rainy days this summer, so I also felt the need for sunny, cheery colors. And it’s summer…so bees always come to mind. That’s what led me to dig out Echo Park’s super cute Bee Happy papers and some bee themed goodies from Reneabouquets. The cards turned out so cute, I just had to share them with you.
Savor Life’s Sweetness
If you’re a fan of buffalo plaid (I am!) and button flowers (yep, me, too!) and honeybees, then I think you’ll like this simple card. Burlap flowers are fun when you add big old vintage buttons to the centers, and Reneabouquets bees, beehive and honeycomb beautiful board made this card a quick and easy project.
Naturally, I added a pocket or two. One for a packet of wildflower seeds…so you can sow your own pollinator garden, of course.
And the other to hold a cute tea wallet, honey stick and bookmark. Summer is a great time to read, and I still like real books with real pages that you can turn. How about you?
Because I already had these happy papers spread out all over my workspace, and because I was having too much fun to quit (dinner was late…oops!) I kept on crafting. This cute Queen Bee card focused on the soft blues in the Bee Happy collection. It’s different from the first card, but equally cheery.
Once again, I created an inside pocket and filled it with some sweet surprises.
These little tea wallets are a great way to use up bitty scraps of designer paper. You can leave a blank sentiment panel inside for your note, then tuck in a summery tea bag as a nice treat. And, again with the wildflower seeds.
That’s really all I had for today, friends. Just thought you’d like to see this sweet paper collection once again. I find it hard not to be happy whenever I pull it out.
And if you’re looking for a break from the summer heat, here are some more bee themed projects from the archives for you to enjoy.
