Bee Mini Album

Good Evening Peeps

I hope it has been a good day for you all and the weather has been kind to you.  It certainly has been a lovely sunny day in South Wales, not that I got chance to see much of it being a working day!

For those of you who follow WOYWW you will remember that I was making a Mini Album for my Hubby who is a Bee Keeper, and that I promised that I would show it to you.  Well, after sorting through some photos on my computer to upload for printing I came across the pictures of the Bee Album and remembered that I have never put it on here for you all to see so here it is....

I have used a plethora of techniques ,most of which were from from Tim Holtz' Compendium book.  The papers were MME Stella Rose and also papers created by leaving card in the bottom of my spraying box!!  Stamps are a mixture of Tim Holtz, Stampotique, Paperartsy, Hero Arts and Blade Rubber Stamps.  I have also used embossing folders by Tim Holtz, too many DIs to list, Perfect Pearls and gold embossing powder.  The tags were made using a Tim Holtz die (well worth it's weight in gold as I don't have to keep buying tags).  Ribbons, buttons and bling from stash and bound with my BIA.  I have also used my Silhouette for a few bits and pieces as well as Martha Stewart punches.

I do hope you have enjoyed seeing the finished album as much as Hubby enjoyed seeing it when he opened it on his birthday.  I also would like to thank my sister for giving me the idea of a "Quote Book" when I asked her for a suggestion.  I just adapted it to a Bee Quote Book.  The quotes I found on the Internet!

Please don't forget to leave me a comment so I know what you think of my little album!

Happy Crafting!!

Oooh lots of lovely goodness going on here! love both of the mini books - especially like the idea of the left handed one - my DS2 is left handed maybe I should make something for him? nah - he is only 6 and would probably trash it within 5 mins! Love your quilt top too - its fabulous! I bought a union jack cushion to make last week (whilst on my jolly to the lovely Bramble Patch) but havent started it yet - I also started a colour course last week so am hoping to produce something soon! Have a great week :) Thanks for the blog award too - havent done anything about that yet - oops.
