Instructions: Blue patterned paper is the full size layout background. Black cardstock is cut to11.25x11.25 and Kraft cardstock is cut to 10.75x10.75. Adhere these layers together. Die cut one of the mini honeycomb image from black cardstock. Then cut apart into smaller pieces. Set aside. Double mat both of the photos in white cardstock. I adhere them together where they overlap. Using the different sized hexagon dies, cut shapes from green, blue, yellow, plaid and polka dot patterned paper. Use the matted photos as a guide and start to adhere the hexagons up the middle of the layout and a little bit to the sides. I layered some using 3D foam squares. Also add in the pieces of the mini honey comb you cut earlier. Adhere the matted photos to the layout using 3D foam squares.

Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the Classic Rose images onto white cardstock using dark brown ink (Early Espresso). I added color to the flowers using ink and daubers, first with yellow (Fossilized Amber) and then with orange ink at the tips of the petals (Spiced Marmalade). Run the flowers through your chosen machine with the 3D Rose Shaping Mold. Tweak and assemble the flowers, and using liquid adhesive add beads to the middle of each flower. Let dry.

Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the Leafy Accents swirly leaves onto white cardstock using dark brown ink (Early Espresso). Add color to the images using daubers and green ink (Fern). Run the leaf images through your chosen machine and the 3D Leafy Accents Shaping Mold. Cut into smaller pieces. Adhere the flowers to either side of the matted photos. Then I added the leaf pieces around the flowers.

Add the painted wood veneer word to the bottom right hand corner of the layout. Stamp and die cut 1 of the Honey Jar image and one set of the Honey Bees onto white cardstock in dark brown ink (Early Espresso). I added color to the honey jar using Chameleon Pens (YO2, YO3, NU1, NU3, PK3). I added yellow Stickles to the Honey Jar. Add color to the bees using Chameleon Pens (CG8, YO2, YO3, BG1, BL3). Add light blue Stickles to the wings. Adhere to the layout using 3D foam squares around the flower clusters.
