Bee-lightful | 1 Kit, 1 Sketch, 1 Month

It’s raining.

It’s snowing.

It’s sunny.

It’s 75º.

It’s 35º.

Any of these weather conditions may apply on any given day where I live in North Carolina in February. Luckily, so far this month the weather has been fairly mild. Today we are forecasted to have a high of 76º!

This warm weather, however, has given me a good case of spring fever! So when I spied this bee paper from 1 Canoe 2, I couldn’t wait to use it as inspiration for my kit this month.

The paper’s color scheme of light yellows, pinks, and browns with a touch of black became the criteria I used for choosing the rest of my patterned papers. Many of the papers have a watercolor look, adding to the spring-like theme. I also added a 6×6 paper pad this month—a product I usually don’t work with—but I loved the colors in the Golden Days collection by Fancy Pants.

When choosing embellishments, I looked for ones with the same color scheme as well as the watercolor look. I added washi tape, die cuts, tags, clips, flair, enamel dots, chipboard, letter, cork, and cardstock stickers. One washi tape and the cardstock stickers both have bees to coordinate with my inspiration paper!

To go along with my kit, Bee-lightful, I created this sketch. The design is made for three 3×3 photographs, but could easily be adapted for one horizontal picture by itself or paired with a 4×4 picture.

After I enjoy this wonderful warm day, I am going to dig into my kit. I’ll post my layouts later this month!

Now go create!
