Pink Paislee "Queen Bee" and a give-away!








{Reported By Kimberly Crawford}






So, this is going to be a lovey-dovey drool fest!! Just as fair warning. :) By far, this was my favorite line at CHA-W. Neutral, antique, and inspiring. I could see myself using canvas, cork, felt, and so many more mediums with this line. Best part is, as a mom of a boy, I can use this to scrap pages of him and keep them manly. When I got the assignment to review the line, I squealed with joy!!
The elements that struck me were the Cork Buttons that were pre-stamped with coordinating images. When I got them, they were thick and easily removed from the backing. They are not self adhesive, but that doesn't really matter.
And probably my favorite element, the Ribbon Pleats. Gorgeous twill, perfectly sewn into pleats. Meaning, I do not have to take out my machine and worry about my fingers! Plus, you can cut them, without issue.

What I Like:
1. The color palette. Fresh and neutral.
2. Fabulous elements that coordinate without getting too matchy.
3. Completely inspiring. This made me want to scrap.
oooh and I am adding another one;
4. For my card making friends, Pink Paislee makes a 6x6 pad!!!!

What I Dislike:
1. I wish they would come out with their own cardstock-I hate surrendering a whole piece of patterned paper to get the "perfect" background color.
2. I am on the fence with their Borderlines Clear Stickers. They have a shiny finish. I did use a piece on a layout, with decent results.
3. The stamps aren't the highest quality, but I can deal with that as well.


What I Made:

Pink Paislee Queen Bee-Honey Bee, Bees Wax, Cork Buttons, Punch Outs Die Cut, Bella Brads, Borderlines Clear Stickers, Expressions Weathered Wood, (Other-Stamp)

I have been wanting to scrap this photo for years, but never found the right papers. These papers were exactly what I needed. I love large patterned papers that I can cut images from, and Honey Bee was wonderful. I also cut apart one of the Ribbon Pleats and bent it around a Cork Button to create a flower. The flower also got a Bella Brad as a center. (yay, I got to be girly! :))

LOVE the self-adhesive chipboard letters. PERFECT amount of distressing to the edges!
Oh, and one more thing to point out-this is the layout I used the Borderline Clear Stickers on-the grey strips along the top and bottom.




Pink Paislee Queen Bee-Honeycomb, Beehive, Queen Bee, Punch Outs Die Cuts, Cork Buttons, Expressions Weathered Wood, (Other-Letter Stickers)

The Punch Out Die Cuts are great-colors and shape. I tucked one underneath the right-side photo. Two more were used at the top. I also used the Cork Buttons-love the touch of midnight blue color on them.




Pink Paislee Queen Bee-Queen Bee, Honeycomb, Beehive, Queen Bee, Cork Buttons, Punch Outs Die Cuts, Ribbon Pleats, Expressions Weathered Wood (Other-Cork Letters)

On this layout, I used a Ribbon Pleat across the whole page. I did add a small strip of patterned paper to break up the black. I used more Punch Outs Die Cuts and Cork Buttons. (Can you tell the elements I really loved? :))

I´m the first??? yeahhhh! Queen bee... hummm... I really like the borderlines and the die-cuts... oh! and the ribbon pleats with the bella brads look so amazing!!! And the colors of this collection... OMG, I really like it all!!! Why am I like this??? Well... you definitely can´t be selective with a collection like this... Love it!!!

kmassman said...

I love the line. Would love to win it! I love green--so anything that has a strong green throughout is a winner with me. I like the diecut large green paper! The journaling cards look fun too! I want it, I need it! :-)

cbk said...

I love the colors in this line, muted but still colorful. The patterns are also awesome. I am with you on the cardstock opinion, I wish I didn't have to use a beautiful piece of patterned paper for backgrounds!

smahrty said...

I have been a Pink P. fan since the company started. Love their fresh and unique ideas.

Antoinette said...

I do agree I love the color pallette a lot. I especially like the die cut papers and thanks for linking to the places where it can be bought. Not sure if we'll see the collection in South African shops anytime soon though, so this is a great way to stay in touch with the latest products ;)

Anne Thompson said...

I really like the colors in this collection and I love the cork buttons. I can see lots of ways to use these materials in my card-making. Love what you did with the pleats to create the little flower--great idea. Thanks for a chance to win this collection! Anne, yourmainestamper

julie.schellin said...

I was not real drawn by the colors of Queen Bee but I love what you did with the patterned paper

ScrappinCntryGrl said...

I love the color pallette....and the die cuts..I have some photos too that would go great with these papers..

S said...

I have to admit that at first glance those are not papers I would have been interested in. But after seeing the details that you showcased on your layouts - this line does have great potential. Thanks for sharing.

Just call me b said...

Oh how I would love to win this! It is so "not my style" but for some reason, the day they gave the sneak...I've loved it ever so!!!

Fingers crossed!

Celeste said...

love the ribbon pleats and the cork! it's versatile - if you don't like theprint - turn it over and use teh plain cork side. genius!

GEL-Oh said...

I like the beautiful color scheme.

Cindy said...

I love the colors. This line is so versatile; I can imagine using it for a wide variety of projects. And I hear you about needing paper appropriate for a boy. Thanks for the chance to win!

Gabi said...

I am always so pleased with everything that comes out of Pink Paislee! I have several of their lines, but none of their newest stuff. I do plan however to get my hands on some of it. I really like this line because of the neutral colors, yellows, and vintage look. This is definitely up my alleyway!

I love everything from Pink Paislee; did I say that already?! Teehee! I love your LO with the shaped paper too. Great used of die-cut paper!!

-Gabi from Savannah, TX

Wendy said...

I love this collection, I could see myself doing a project with these great colors, maybe a clock or a clipboard. Love it, thanks for sharing!

Joli said...

Your little boy is a cutie pie!!! This line worked perfect for your pictures!

I have been a huge fan of Rebecca's since her days of running an online store. I love the way Pink Paislee has grown and just keep getting better and better!! The ribbon pleats are one of my favorite things to come out at CHA! For me, the biggest draw about this line is that it is so unlike anything else I have, I always get bright colors with lots of flowers and bling. I am anxious to try it and would love to win!!

just me and z said...

Wow, those colors are so divine! I love how soft and delicate, yet very modern. Your layout turned out way cute!
Thanks for sharing. I give this line an A!! :)

Dana Tatar {datatar} said...

This is my favorite new Pink Paislee line! I love the neutral colors, so many possibilities with this palate. I LOVE the cork embellies and the pleated ribbon. This line is at the top of my wishlist! Thanks for the inspiration and the chance to win! :)

KittyMama said...

I'm totally with you on the cardstock thing ... I love having perfectly matching solids, and I hate giving up a whole sheet of pattern. I'll usually end up buying extra sheets just to get the solids.

Deborah said...

Queen Bee I love it. Would love to have it to scrap my mother's heritage book with.Whow! Pleated ribbon what fun. I don't own a sewing machine so I'd use those. I can't see the border stickers to well but I,m sure they would be great to use also. It has such soft colors and the patterned paper is not so wild like some. Thanks for a chance to win this beautiful collection.Deborah Keizer

william said...

This is beautiful! Looks great with baby pics. I think it would work great with pictures I have of my grandparents and childhood photos of my parents!

Lythan said...

I've never really mastered pleating so having it done for you is cool. Love the look of the cork buttons too

PamS said...

I love the colors in this line. That alone would draw me to it in a store. I like that they make the 6x6 pad of paper also.

Molly said...

I love the versatility of this line!

~Molly

Angela Fehr said...

It's a very different colour scheme than I would usually pick...but I like it! Love the die cut paper and the flip notes.

Deb said...

I can see why you love it--I love it too! So many good applications for that color palette, and they totally look great on your layouts! Thanks for the opportunity. My name means "the bee" and my DH calls me "Queen Bee" so fingers crossed that it comes to me! :)

Wanita said...

I love this line and the fact that EVERYTHING coordinates so well! One of my favorite company's :)

GinniG said...

This is a BEAUTIFUL collection with TONS of possibilities!!! LOVE all of your examples and have lots of ideas of my own! Will be looking for this at the LSS if I don't win it! ;)

Joni Parker said...

I've been eyeing this line since I saw the sneaks. I also have a boy and his Kinder class is called "the Bee's" (teacher's last name starts with B) & they decorate in Bee stuff, so this will be PERFECT to do some layouts of photos from his classroom (& with teacher/classmates). That cork & the alphas look amazing. Love your layouts!!!

carriegel said...

I really live the color combination. Thanks for the chance to win.

Heather said...

When I first saw the new lines, I wasn't as drawn to the colours in this one because they are so neutral. But I really like it now that I've seen some layouts done with it. It's subtle but the detailed cutouts etc still pop. The ribbon pleats in all the new PP lines are great since I don't have a sewing machine. Thanks for the chance to win!

Scrapamum said...

You did a great job with this line! I love the grey colors that is my fav color right now!!!

Laura L said...

Gorgeous! That's all I have to say :)

joni said...

Love Pink Paislee anything! And this line is fantastic! I love it and I love what you did with it! Beautiful!

Jingle said...

I am so loving yellows lately and this soft color palette is absolutely perfect!

Sarah Rentz said...

I love this collection!! I am also a mom of boys and this is great to use for them!! I cant wait to use this collection!!I love the natural colors and elements to this collection! The cork buttons, WOW!! Cant wait to get those!! I really like the journaling pad. I love the ribbon!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!! I really like the die cut tags, they look great! And the press ons look like fun too, I like that its in one BUG sheet, it should be fun to use. I know there not shown here, but I'm interested in seeing the weathered wood chipboard alphas, they look cute!But I'm there with you with the cardstock, I wish they would make there own cardstock, I don't want to use a whole piece of paper to have a plain piece. I like the look of the stamps, I could use those for other projects!!lol

Tany Sol said...

Beautiful layouts! Love the colors. Thanks!!!!

Emilyt said...

Beautiful creations! Love the unique items that they offer for embellishments in this line.
I would likely scrap heritage photos with this line. Lovely subtle colors that are sure to go with all types of older photos.

Erica Hettwer said...

I've never seen it in person but I'm dying to get my hands on it. It's just awesome!

Amy said...

This one is my fav from their last release and it is just gorgeous!! I hope to get my hands on some real soon! The ribbon pleats and border stickers are so amazing! Love those products! And my fav thing about this line is that it is so versatile! I could use it for so many things! :D Thanks so much for the chance to win some! YaY!

rae said...

oh wow, wow, WOW! love what you did here Kimberly!!!
I ADORE the colors in this line as well, and know that I would use up every single scrap :)
Love me some Pink Paislee!!!

~Lori Roop (loree2000 SCS) said...

This line is so unique. It has such an earthy feel to it. I really like the ribbon and chipboard letters. Fun-ness!! :)

I love your l/o's Kimberly. They compliment the product perfectly!

Jennifer said...

Gorgeous colors and love the pleated ribbon.

Jenn said...

such beautiful layouts, I know this was a sought after line!

Ann Cicilie said...

Hi there!

I love Queen Bee, think the color palette is something different what I've seen before. When I first saw it, I doubted that I could ever find anything to scrap with those colors, but after seeing DT projects over at Pink Paislee, and other places, I've got lots of ideas!

I'm not sure about the Ribbon Pleats, but I LOVE the border stickers :)

{Sarah} said...

YES! It absolutely makes me want to run and scrap LOL! I love anything Pink Paislee and can't wait to get my hands on this new stuff! =)

KateB said...

as a lover of earth tones, I can see myself using it all since I have 1 of each boy & girl. I'd venture out the norm and do all our pumpkin patch LO's with this line.

Queen Kat

Jennifer Richardson said...

How have i not seen this line before! SO great! My moms mother died giving birth to her, i have a stack of pictures of my grandmother i have wanted for years to make into an album for my mom. this line is perfect. many of the pics are b&w or the aged colors and this line is ideal! I also love the adhesive distressed letters! Thanks for a great review :)

latarnia said...

The color combo is fresh and lovely indeed! Some of the embellies caught my eye too - Bella Brads for instance. And I love this old-time feel this line has.

Dani Donner said...

I absolutely love this line. I have two boys and it's so hard to find a line that is antique/vintage and that I use to scrap some of their candid pictures.

ocbrandy said...

I love all shades of green, so I fell in love with this line the moment I saw it! Definitely a monochromaic favorite :O)

KristynG said...

Pink Paislee is by far my favorite manufacturer and I absolutely love this queen bee line! I agree that it is great for boy layouts (i love your last layout) and I see it being used for heritage layouts also. I would LOVE to be able to add this collection to my stash!
oh, and don't be afraid of the border stickers-they really are great once you start using them regularly.

Samantha T. said...

I love the colors in this line. The pleated ribbon is genius, and the cork accents are beautiful and trendy!

Abby said...

Love the neutral colors and all those yummy shaped papers.

First, adorable LO's... Great inspirations!!
I really like the colors that were used in this line. The flip notes are cute and I like the cork buttons too. The pleated ribbon is great, would save lots of time..

Not my usual style of product, but I love what you've done with it, and there are definitely some intriguing (sp?) elements I would love to try and use. You've convinced me!

I really like the embellishments they have added to their line- I am looking forward to trying some of the pleated ribbon. I love the layouts you made with this line.

twobugs said...

love the colors of this line and love all the things that can be done with the pleated ribbon. Had never seen cork buttons so it would be so cool to be able to try them out

Jennifer said...

I love this collection! The patterns are gorgeous and I would LOVE to try that pleated ribbon. Thanks for a chance to win!

Allison Cope said...

Absolutely stunning pages Kimberly! I adore this line. The colours are feminine but work for masculine pages and I would love to add this to my scrappy stash!

Jenny said...

I love this line! It is so versatile-it could look masculine or feminine depending on what you do with it. Pink Paislee is one of my favorite companies!

ArlaMo said...

I love the pleated ribbon!! Thanks for the chance.

Leah the Orange said...

wow, you've done some BEAUTIFUL things with this line, Kim! i, too, am always looking for things to scrap my son (who's nearly 17 now)... the gorgeous neutrals in this line would be PERFECT (as you've demonstrated!)... i'm particularly intrigued by the pleated ribbon, cork buttons, and BIG PATTERNED PAPERS, as i am a fussycutting fiend! LOVE that technique!

beautiful line, and your pages turned out brilliantly. THANK YOU, too, for letting us card makers know about the 6x6! WOO HOO!

Jen said...

OOooh, these are sorta muted colors and I love them! Thanks for the chance!

Stephanie said...

Oh - it makes my head BUZZ and my heart ZIP ABOUT - how beautiful - I want to make cards non stop and scrap my heart out, its so adaptable - the colors, the patterns, the gorgeous accessories. Well Done Pink Paislee again.

Jenny Brannies said...

I think these layouts are gorgeous, OMG, LOVE the last one! So precious and the design is awesome!
I don't have access to this line anywhere local so this would be awesome. Thanks for the chance to win!

Shasta said...

What a great prize package! These layouts are lovely ;)

Pinque said...

I think this line is actually not all that bad, there are a few things that I can create with the different shades of green - paper flowers, etc., I like the idea of using this line for cards for a man as they are not my usual bright, fun and festive colors!

abbeyviolet said...

Very nice line!

skgberry said...

I'm not sure my computer screen does the colors justice. This is one of those lines I think I'd have to put my hands on before deciding.

I do love what you did with it and think it might be good for vintage photos.

lynnfrompgh said...

OH I LOVE the die-cuts and the ribbon pleats would be a definite to try!! Great lo's....Pink Paislee does it again!!

Gayle215 said...

I recently received some of the pleated twill as part of a kit club I subscribe to. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Pink Paislee is the best!

Jen said...

I adore this line! It's a nice fresh look to someone who normally goes towards bright colours. This would be perfect to scrap some quiet moments that have been captured over the years.

peg said...

I seem to be in the mood for anything 'royal'. Love the pleats and the die cuts.

Valerie Bishop said...

Emily said...

I LOVE this collection. I have been waiting and waiting for it to show up at my LSS, they're supposed to get it, but they still haven't! :( The line is just gorgeous, I also love the large patterns, I would be busy with my scissors! And I love the pleated ribbon and cork elements, too... and the color scheme, I just love it all!

Rilzbee Creations said...

Meggan said...

I fell in love with PP's other lines from CHA, but hadn't really considered ordering this line. After seeing your layouts, I may have to order this one too!

coolnana72 said...

I love your layouts and I agree, it's a great collection to use for boy pages TFS

Kimpm1 said...

Love the cork buttons and pleated ribbon!

Beth said...

Love a collection that works for the masculine crowd! Great reveiw, Kimberly!

Missusg said...

i think this will be a perfect package to do up some nice pages of my son. i have never tried the pleats on any kind of page so i would be interested in trying that. i am also not a real big sticker user but would give that a try as well. thanks for the chance to win such a wonderful prize package

jennie said...

I think I need to see this line in person. The colors seem off? The layouts are beautiful, for sure. The green tones almost seem too much when I look at the collection as a whole online. However, some of those embelishments are totally fabulous and unique!!

domesticchaos said...

I love it all for the muted, palette and classic designs. If I had to pick one fave, though, it would be the distressed chipboard alphas. I must have them all!!!

Kim M said...

I am lovin those pleated ribbons, they are heaven sent!!!

LisaNRoxy said...

I adore this line! The colors are so awesome and inspiring. I would use it to scrap my nephew, my pug, me, Idec coffee - everything!! I also NEED the pleated ribbon - wow - it is awesome. Thanks for a chance to win it and I love your projects!!

Erika M. said...

It is a beautiful line - loving the wonderful colors and the die cut paper.

Rebecca Ednie said...

This line would be perfect to use when scrapping my boys! Yeah! I LOVE that pleated twill! It is hard to pleat ribbon neatly and accurately which is why I usually go for the messy and whimsically uneven look! This would be a great product to have!

Susan said...

I think those colors could grow on me. I would love to try the ribbon pleats! sUSAn

Joy Pearcy said...

I love this line!! As a mom of a little boy, I get so sick of blues and reds for his pages. This is a nice change from the ordinary. Hope I win!!

LaMaMaLa said...

Ohh, so nice! I love the line! I'd prolly use it for some of my boys pics, and we're renovating our home and I'm looking for a line to do my mini album!

countryscrapper - aka - Helen said...

Oooh la la!!! So nice indeed. Loving the die cut paper and punch outs, oh and that pretty pleated ribbon. Divine!!!

Laura Stewart said...

great pages! love it all

Rebecca said...

I seriously love the color combo in this collection and the pleats are amazing!

Jenny McGee said...

I love the pattern papers and the color palette. Beautiful. Ribbon pleats sound great too. Thanks for a chance to win.

Cassi said...

The colors are pure bliss. I love the varied tetures too. All around great line.

Scrapycandy said...

I REALLY like your layouts...and the paper responded to your creativity. Thanks for the insight...I really needed that!!!

Faith B. said...

I can't see much of the detail from the picture. The colors appear a bit drab to me. This would not be something that I would buy.

Carol said...

It is hard to tell from the photo if I would like the colors. Sometimes things look different in person. I prefer brighter colors for my scrap layouts, but might use this for cards. I am a little concerned that you said the stamp quality is not good, I have used stamps like that and I find them frustrating. All in all, I would have to see it before I could decide.

imastampin said...

Kimberly, I love your review and you're right - those papers are awesome!

Elizabeth Bailey said...

It's not a color palette I use a lot of, but I really like the look and patterns in the collection.

AngMomof3 said...

I've been wanting to scrap with these colors for awhile now, but was intimidated by finding the right shades to fit together. Pink Paislee did it for me! I'd love to win it.

anji said...

i love the colors. i am all about the distress and vintage look. i hope i win this.

Eva said...

Well, I just had to post, BECAUSE I love this line....and yes, I absolutely ADORE the pleats!! Your layouts turned out gorgeous!!!! Hugs...

Christine Schmidt said...

Fabulous line!! I actually LOVE all three lines they released--beautiful papers & embellishments. I am totally in love with the Artisan Elements & Canvas Albums. Can't wait to get these & play with them!!

Erla RĂșn said...

Wow, this is a beautiful line!! now I really just want to run home and scrap! I have a boy and a girl and I would see myself using these papers to do pages for both, but I think I would rather want to use them for my boy.

la zaz said...

love the tender colors of this new line !!!

Love that they have different texture in their embellishment.

The pleated ribbons is a FAB idea for those who want something different in a trim (coughMEcough).

This line is so beautiful. I love the paper, the muted colors and embellishments. I would make a minibook for a special girlfriend. It would be of our last visit together. The stamps would be perfect. How cool to have a crown and bee stamp.

Thanks for the chance to win.

I just love the color palette here...so soft and vintagey. The pleated ribbon is gorgeous, the cork buttons add a great touch of texture. I can see myself using these to make awesome altered books.

I love the cork buttons!! And I have to say that I am just in love with the paper. It is bold but soft in some strange way. I just can't describe it but it's FABulous! Thanks for a great review and entire collection give-away!!

Teri said...

I LOVE this line as well. I, too, have a boy, and find it harder to scrap our special moments with some other papers. I can't wait to try out the cork embellishments, as well as the ribbon pleats. Thanks for sharing your ideas! :)

Mrs Ham said...

This set is wonderfu. I love that it can be used on masculine and feminine paper. A beginner or advance crafters would be able to create something wonderful with this Honey Bee collections. The pages you created are just beautiful. Thanks for sharing them with us.

PEA said...

Miss Kimberly did a wonderful job.
Really love this collection. The colors and unusual elements of cork, pleated ribbons really appeal to me as I like to use things out of the norm. The vintage inspired colors are wonderful for any style of decor. I like that. If I make a layout of a friend I could trust it could go with her home.
YES, it inspired me and I want to go a scrapping right away.
Bee-u-tiful.
