Honey Bee Stamps – Little Pick Up

The more I play and use Honey Bee Stamps and dies the more I fall in love with them ALL! Tonight as the business of Christmas card orders has wound down I had an opportunity to make my first card using the Little Pick Up Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

 

The quality of these products is top-notch and the images are super fun and unique, I highly recommend you trying out this line of products (which are available in my shop) and will post links to the items used below my photo steps of creating this card.

A little fun with new craft supplies

So I’ve been super busy lately but couldn’t resist any longer having a play with the new HoneyBee Stamps, and craft supplies that I ordered in.

I didn’t have much time so I just made a sweet little 3″x3″ notecard using the Zen Floral and Beautiful Life stamp sets that are listed in my shop, they’re perfect for colouring! I used Spectrum Noir markers for the flowers and glitter markers to highlight (I can get these in for you too!).

Here is a quick pic and I will get some more projects up soon.

Yay, to boutique selling!

So, I’ve been making cards for five ish years now. I’ve always loved crafting but after sadly loosing our first born baby boy, Noah, after a negligent delivery (he lived 10 months, but that was all his little body could sustain due to the birth traumas, I will share my full story when I get brave enough to do so) I threw myself into making cards to just occupy my mind and hands.

It has been quite a journey of learning, learning about myself and regaining lost confidence. Through encouragement from friends and family I started selling my cards on Etsy, it felt so good to be doing something I enjoyed again that made me happy, others happy and helped our family income (well, maybe just offset my hobby 😜).

When we moved back to Canada I started a Canadian Etsy shop and now have my cards being sold in a local boutique!

It may seem small to some it for me this is a lovely sense of encouragement looking back to where I was to where I am now and where I may go in the future.

Stay tuned as I learn this land of blogging and will post some projects, giveaways ans more.
