Just Bee

So the Core ladies and I got some amazing goody box's this week and Maya Rd was extremely generous with some fabulous rub ons and chip board. I had been eyeing up this honey comb album ever since CHA and was over the moon excited when it arrived at my door step. It was the first thing that I dug into and here is what I created.
I used some of my all time favorite colors, collections and techniques.
Here is a close up of my crimper leaves and torn flower, isn't that torn edge gorgeous. The little bee is one of my faves from My little bit if whimsy.
The first pages are a little bit about remembering to slow down and just bee
The 2nd and 3rd page are about other very important things to bee.

Here is a close up of the Maya Rd Chipboard letters, I covered them in cardstock, sanded them and then just added a few stitches to them,

Here is a close up of some more chipboard. Maya Rd sent up some of there Mists. I have no idea what the name of the one they sent me was, but it is kinda an opaque white sparkle. So for many of the chipboard elements {title BEE and this heart and the little tree}, I used my Copic markers and colored them before spritzing them. That way I can have any color sparkle I want. YUP I love this!!!

Here is the final page. I used the fiskars texture plate to create the embossed honey comb pattern and the torn Chocolate box by Core was the perfect spot use the Maya Rd Rub-ons.

All the pattern papers and embellishments are by Jillibean Soup. Buttons are by My little bit of Whimsy. Photo corners are by Scrapbook adhesives.

Thanks for dropping by
