Beautiful Bees & Sunflowers

With Graphic 45 Paper

Hello and welcome.

Have you seen the Graphic 45 Let it Bee Collection? It is so beautiful with its golden sunflowers and detailed bees that I knew it would make a gorgeous planner.

By limiting the papers that I pulled from my stash and only using a few dies for the card bases, the album/journal came together pretty quickly. A sturdy black card stock (I recommend 90 pound or heavier) was used with Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner Essential dies 1, 2, 3, and 41 for the page foundations.

The 8×8 Let it Bee paper pack was just large enough to cut two matts per sheet using the mat die from the Elizabeth Craft Designs (ECD) Planner Essentials #41.

Papers were added from my stash. The yellow and green papers were cut using ECD Florals 7 and shaped into dimensional sunflowers and leaves.

Journal pockets add interest and give good storage for memorabilia. Include tags for a versatile way to add extra photos or journaling.

The Seed Packet dies are fun to decorate in so many ways and give a secure way to keep memorabilia inside. I stamped, colored, and fussy cut bees to embellish the packets.

The Graphic 45 postcard journaling cards and stamped journaling cards really help with telling your story.

I hope this inspires you a bit. Please leave a comment and let me know if you made anything with this beautiful paper.

Thanks for stopping by!
