HoneyBee Showcase April 13

This was a new challenge for me; Freezer Paper Stenciling!!..I wanted to do a place setting and decided to use my Pagoda cartridge to get the Asian look I was going for. I tried countless number of times to get the top part of the vase (that had the flowers), but the cut was to intricate and kept giving me a hard time. I decided to just use the base and from the same cartridge do a couple of flowers. So much easier!

The fold of the napkin is quit simple. I put the 'right' side down and folded it in half and then half again. This gave me a square. Then taking the top point, bring it down half way. Last step is folding back the sides. I wanted to make a pocket to hold the chopsticks! For my paint I used Tulip (Matte) Soft Fabric Paint. The vase is a mix of blue and green; the flowers are pink and orange.

HoneyBee Showcase April 6 Babies

Baby toes, baby cheeks..gotta love a baby!!..What other little creature do you get excited over when  he or she makes first little poopie?...lol..The funniest skit I ever saw was Bill Cosby (years ago) getting all excited about this 'new' thing the baby did.  Our very own Miss Betty has a brand new sweet smelling little granddaughter, Paisley.  Since our challenge this week has to do with 'babies', I did a layout of this precious little girl.  When I see Betty, I will give this layout to her.

For my layout I used my new embossing rubber mat and embossing tip. I love how it worked on vellum; sorry I don't remember what cartridge I used for the frame.  Paisley was done using Cursive 101.  The border was done with my Fiskars border punch.

Be sure to stop by Betty Bee's Buzz to see what the HoneyBees have for you today and take our baby challenge!

Buzz Brag and Bee Happy Friday April 1

Well, I finally got a project done!! It felt good getting into my scraproom and playing with my stash. I have been wanting to use my Imaginisce magnets that I purchased and never used. While visiting Target, I found the cutest journal on sale for under $3.00. The book is canvas and such a cool print that I didn't want to cover it up. I did a search and found the idea for the flower magnet book closure, but no matter how many times I looked at the YouTube video, I just wasn't getting it to work. So, I came up my own method and it works!..The flowers are glued to the magnet and then the magnet is glued to the book. It took a few tries with ribbon and found the lighter ribbon works best. I did a decorative cover inside to hide the ribbon and everything is secure. So, do the Ns look a little funky? They should. I didn't have any Ns, so I used a couple Ms and cut them..I think it works with the album..lol..

Inside the journal I will help Nina set it up to be more than just a journal. When we were at the Mall, she found a journal that had comments for her to answer..Cool and very fun. So, I cut a few mats for photos. Example would be her photo on the first page. She can write 'me' and give the color of her hair,eyes, etc. There will be a page for anyone she wants listed and also questions like her favorite song, book, colors..whatever..This should be fun working with her to get it started. Hopefully, I can get a photo once the pages get filled in some.
