confetti paste + honey bee spring release hop day 1


Welcome to day 1 of the Honey Bee Spring Release Blog Hop!!! I'm always so thrilled to be included in these celebrations because not only are the products so darn cute, but everyone at Honey Bee is so sweet & wonderful!!! 

I had a hard time deciding what to share with you today (if you've been following the sneaks on Instagram, you know I've been having lots of fun), but I decided to share a little DIY Confetti Paste using sentiments from the new Heaven Sent set...

I love everything galaxy, stars, constellations, etc. so these sentiments are perfect even though on first glance it looks like a baby set. And DIY Confetti Paste is something my sparkly friend Carissa Wiley & I dreamed up. Honey Bee has an adorable collection of confetti and DIY Confetti Paste is a great way to adhere them. You can see more in my video below...





Have fun hopping along...
Carly Minner ---> you are here! 

And make sure to leave a little love at each hop stop by commenting for a chance to win the Honey Bee giveaway! There will be 2 winners of $50 gift certificate and 4 winners of Bee Organized Prize Pack! Winners will be announced here on May 5th.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs!
Carly

What a nifty trick! I wouldn't have thought to use a glue that way, but that works perfectly! And you really make the most of your galaxy backgrounds as focal points, which is something I sometimes forget you can do. One doesn't always need all the things on one card! Or so I keep trying to tell myself. Thanks for sharing these lovely cards and great ideas.
