Buzz and Bumble

My next card for this week's upcoming workshop uses the Buzz and Bumble Workshop on the Go.  I chose to use the 3x3 card format.  But I also wanted to showcase our new alcohol markers.  

I was not very enthusiastic about this paper to begin with--could have something to do with my husband's deathly allergic reaction to bee stings, but seeing it in person I kind of fell for it.  

Already thinking ahead to my next project to use it....

Supplies: all CTMH unless noted
Paper: Buzz and Bumble, Colonial White CS
Ink: Bamboo, and markers in both shades of Sweet Leaf, Honey, Creme Brulee, Autumn Terracotta
Stamp: Buzz and Bumble WOTG (G1054)
Other: sponge dauber, edge distresser, burlap ribbon, liquid glass, foam tape, sparkles

Floral Happiness

I'm still trying to come up with two cards for my workshop next Wednesday.  I really wanted to feature the Stamp of the Month for March and a new product or two.

Here is the first card.  Inside reads 'having you as a friend'.  The stamp set has some great sentiments on it, but I just had to work forever to get the layout how I wanted haha.

I am kind of digging the new Chevron Ribbon in Outdoor Denim too.  :)

Hope you all have great plans for the weekend.  My daughters and I will be taking an art lesson!
God Bless!

Supplies Used: all CTMH unless noted
Paper: Outdoor Denim CS, Dakota B&T, White Daisy CS
Ink: Outdoor Denim (second generation) Buttercup
Stamp: Floral Happiness (S1303)
Other: Chevron Ribbon, sponge dauber, edge distressor, micro tip scissors, sparkles, adhesive and foam tape.

So Ready for SUMMER!

One of my bestest friends, in fact we consider each other sisters, wants to do a workshop this month.  She chose to feature the CTMH My Creations Bracket Frame and a beach theme.  I was so excited to do it!  Here's the frame I came up with.  Be sure to click on the picture to enlarge it and see the details!  :)

I love love the look of the barn wood paper with the beach theme.  And the Surf's Up papers were so colorful and fun I thought they would work perfectly for any beach themed photo that a person might want to add.  I chose this adorable shot of my son playing in the water from last summer.  Gosh could you just smooch that face or what!?!

The thing about these frames that I love is that you can make them very 3D!  The layout with clouds is in the back of the frame.  The twine with Mini-Clothespins is hanging across the middle and the paper candy is on the outside.  It really draws your eye in.  And the cool part is you can change the photo whenever you want since it's just hanging on the clothes line!!

Just for fun, I'm adding this entry to the Moxie Fab Challenge.

Thanks for dropping by!
