Hello Friend {Geek Lab}

Blog Image_Geek LabHi friends,

Melissa here with you today and I’m sharing two fun cards using the printables from the February BEE You kit. I love that we have these fabulous printables to help complete our kits. They always go so well with the papers and colors of the kit. Most of all, I love how you can adapt them to work for your project.

The two cards I’m sharing showcase one of the printables and how I used Photoshop to make it work for my card. Here are the two cards that I made:

I also created a process video that will walk you through how I pulled the image from the printables, into Photoshop, and added the text. I printed it off to use as a die cut type element on one card and then printed it onto another printable element for a card base.

To see all the details and steps, I encourage you to watch the video below.

I hope this video has helped you come up with some new ways and ideas for using printables on your cards and projects. The possibilities truly are endless!

Stay tuned because it’s almost time for the reveal of our March kit and boy is it a beauty!!!

Have a great day friends!

What is your Favorite tool? Cutter Bee Scissors, Sewing Machine,

Where do you find inspiration?  Challenges – They are a great jumping point for creativity. I usually have the TV on while scrapping but can’t watch anything that demands my attention.

When you scrap do you listen to music, watch tv or need complete quiet? I usually have the TV on while scrapping but can’t watch anything that demands my attention.

How long have you been scrapping and what is one thing you love about it? Since 2001. One thing I love about it: The creative path it led me down and the connection with like-minded people around the world.

Sherry thank you for sharing a little bit about yourself with us today!  Now lets get to Sherry’s first project using the February Bee You kit!  Grab your coffee, tea, soda or water and get ready to be inspired!

Hello, friends! Sherry here and I’m thrilled to be a guest designer this month! My layout started with a sweet photo of my daughter and her friend, dressed up for a school dance. The pink, black, and white color combination of the gorgeous Hazelwood floral papers were the perfect match for the photo.

Although I adore the over-sized floral paper, I knew it would overpower my layout. I fussy cut several of the flowers and added french knots to add dimension and a pop of black.

To mat the photo I mixed a couple of pieces from the cut apart sheet of patterned paper.

I needed smaller scale leaves on the perimeter of the layout, so I fussy cut a few from the cut apart sheet. img_3510

For the title, I used a stamp from my stash and the gorgeous Thickers that came in the kit.

To pull some soft pink to the top of the layout, I machine-stitched around the edge and layered some ephemera for the cluster at the top.
