Tell the Bees: My New Hand Illustrated Paper Craft Collection with Craft Consortium

My second collaboration with Craft Consortium is the new luxury paper pad called Tell the Bees. I received my samples in the post a few weeks ago and I am delighted with the final product. The quality of the papers and the added gold foils and shimmer details make it perfect for the look and feel I wanted. For this collection Craft Consortium added some rubber stamps and ribbon trims hand illustrated by me to coordinate with the papers. My inspiration for this collection came from an old folklore custom I read about " "Telling the Bees". This saying is steeped in folklore in which it was considered a custom to notify the bees of any changes to daily life, including births deaths & marriages
