Clovermead Album Cover

$15 worth of photos from Costco and we are ready to Bee-scrapping. :-) sorry had too do it....

It's starts off with this super cute resin bee that was given to Madison and I by this wonderful women who owns a scrapbook store in Lambeth (sorry the name has slipped my mind and I can't find it online). We decided to go with a vintage feel because of this cute little bee.

On our visit to Michaels we picked up the $1.50 chipboard Bee album to use as a shape on the front cover.

I covered the bee with paper then three layers of UTEE and cracked it from the freezer, so much fun and I haven't done it in so long.

After that it felt like it needed something else so I added some gold embossing powder to the edges. I loved how it seperated when I heated it a little longer. Hopefully you can see it in this picture.

I decided to use a prima chipboard album that I have been hanging onto. It has an embossed cover which I played with like crazy. I inked it with yellow ink, then rubbed it with some brown chalk ink. Sprayed some glimmer mist and then rubbed it with some metallic paste. It sounds like a lot but it was totally worth it, awesome!!
I cut out the embossed section to make a window so that I could stick a Bee sign in there. Added some prima flowers and Michaels $1.50 roses and voila!

The black sign is a spellbinders that I borrowed for my mom, it was cut out of black cardstock and I used some of the metallic rub on it also.

One page down, 11 more to go. Stay tuned....

Happy Stamping!

Clovermead Bee Farm

We've been spending some quality family time this summer with the kids going to Niagara Falls, Grand Bend and a couple weeks ago we went to Aylmer, Ontario to Clovermead Honey. They have a really quant farm for the kids with a playground, animals and fun stuff.

There wer super cute "Bee" signs all over the place and definately a scraper-tunity. So, after our trip to the Bee Farm the kids and I went to Michaels and bought everything in yellow and black to make our Bee album.

Now we just need to get the pictures developed and get going on our scrappy bee album.

Stay tuned!

Happy Stamping!
