The other day I was on a field trip with my youngest son’s class to see the changes in nature this time of year. We looked at plants, talked about animals, listening to nature’s noises this time of year and how busy everything is. We also had a little net to catch some bugs. Although we weren’t quite quick enough to catch any, we saw butterflies and fireflies, moths and many other bugs. Which got me thinking about how often we find a bug motif in papercrafting. I think butterflies in particular never go out of style. Today for the challenge, I’m challenging you to find ways to use bugs in your projects. I can’t wait to see all the delightful projects so please, join us here.

You’re So Sweet


I’ve always loved interactive journaling cards so when I designed this Bee List stamp last year, it seemed like a fun aspect to include. Because I wasn’t coloring this today, I stamped the image onto yellow patterned paper to accent the bee theme. I’m still working my way through my 8×8 pad of October Afternoon Thrift Shop paper.

Supplies: kraft and white cardstock by Bazzil, The Bee List stamp by CHF, Tattered Florals Die by Sizzix, button by Basic Grey, Flower Pins by Little Yellow Bicycle, Jet Black Archival Ink by Ranger, sewing machine, Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink by Ranger, Farmer’s Market Twine
