Buzz and Bumble "Friends" Layout
One of my favorite new Collections in the new Close to my Heart Idea Book is called Buzz and Bumble. I created this layout using photos of me with one of my closest friends, and fellow CTMH Consultants, Christine Adams. She and I have a special relationship and I respect her in so many ways! As soon as I saw the “friends” theme of this paper Collection I knew it would be perfect to showcase some of our photos.
On the left page I used the letters in the Buzz and Bumble My Stickease for the title. I also used a couple of the fun self adhesive wooden shapes in the Buzz and Bumble Assortment. I stamped the bee’s “trail” using a stamp from the Buzz and Bumble Workshop on the Go stamp set.
I also created a small cluster at the top of the page using some of the elements from the Buzz and Bumble My Stickease and B&B Assortments. I LOVE the self adhesive faux wax seal. It is soft and flexible and looks just like a real wax seal.
The “journaling” on the right page is from a zip strip from one of the patterned papers in the B&B paper packet.
I used a few more My Stickease and some wooden scroll accents from the Mini Medley Wooden Accents to make another cluster on the bottom right corner of the frame. The “Sweet as Honey” was stamped using the Honeycomb stamp set.
The frame was created using Cricut Craft Room. I cut it out of some Cocoa cardstock and then stamped it with Cocoa ink using one of the the Patterned Pennants stamps. Instead of putting a photo in the top left opening, I used a piece of patterned paper and stamped a sentiment from the Fabulous You stamp set and then added another wooden bee from the B&B Assortments.
One of the things that I love most about scrapbooking, is recording memories so that I can go back later and relive the fun times that I have had with family and friends. One of the things I love most about being a Close to my Heart Consultant, is making such great friends to create those memories with! Love you Christine! xoxo
