Hi there everyone!

 My name is Emily Kohout and I’m 14 years old. I LOVE all things crafty, such as sewing, painting, drawing, paper crafts, jewelry making, and the list goes on and on! I’ve contributed projects here and there for Honey Bee Stamps in the past, but I’m so excited to say that this is my first post as the Honey Bee Stamps kid designer!

I’m learning how to edit video for tutorials! Subscribe to the HBS YouTube channel so you catch my project videos! I’m so excited!!!



With Valentine’s Day coming up I needed a gift to give a few of my friends. I knew these Honey Bee products would be perfect with some Burt’s Bees Lip Balm.  First,  I used the Hive Card Dies to make a place to house the lip balm. There are several products on the market that can be used to hold different types of chapstick. I’ve listed the one I used in the supply list below.  I then used the Hive Stencils to give it a little dimension. Using a Ranger Mini Ink Blender, I lightly added Scattered Straw Distress Ink onto the cover of my hive.



I stamped this cute little bee using the Build-A-Bee Stamp Set and then colored her with the Chameleon Color Tones pencils. Using an action wobbler, I adhered her to the card.  Then I stamped this cute daisy from the Busy Bees stamp set with a Nuvo Clear Mark Ink Pad. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set it. Using the Busy Bees Coordinating Dies, I die cut the daisy, some little leaves and a tiny heart. To add a couple of finishing touches I used some Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the heart and a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen on the bees wings.


Finally, for the inside of my card, I die cut the scripty “bee” from the Bee-You-Tiful die set out of some black card stock and the stitched shadow from the same patterned paper as on the front of the card.  The “mine” is from the Bee-You-Tiful stamp set.

*The top of this picture shows how I enclosed the lip balm using plain white card stock. It makes a easy spot for the recipient to get the Burt’s Bees out of the package;)

Thank for stoping by!
