HoneyBee Showcase - It's A Frame up - March 2nd

Welcome back to the HoneyBee Showcase!  We've all been framed!  Yep, it's true... let's check it out!

June Houck

Happy Wednesday! Our DT sister (aka HoneyBee Roe) gave each of us a frame to decorate as we wished to frame a picture of all of us at our first annual HoneyBee Swarm in Orlando, FL last week. (The arrow is pointing to Roe.)

I stamped my mat using blue ink and a Hero Arts polka dot background stamp. I used brown ink and a "friends" stamp too. All the flowers, birds, and leaves were fussy cut from a sheet of scrapbook paper. I think the fussy cutting was time well spent because my birds and leaves are hiding the water bottles and chairs that were on/by the table in front of us :)

We all received the same frame, the same picture, and we all used Betty's "friends" stamp, and yet each frame is uniquely beautiful, don't you agree?


I loved these little birds, so I just had to add them...  The bees are made by using black marker on the back of skittles to make the lines. 
My bee trails spell out all of our names.  I stamped "friends: with brown ink...


Wow, wasn't that a gorgeous frame Rosemary shared with us on Monday?   Well, I am here to tell you mine is nowhere as lovely or elegant as Roe's......instead, I went funky with a blank canvas that I first painted, then added paper and pictures of my Funky aren't they goofy looking with their wild hair!?


The kids love taking the pillows off my sofa and rubbing them on their heads, and this is the result they get!! I stapled a strip of fabric on the bottom that I first pleated, then glued the colorful buttons on top, and added  the ruler tape and some stickers.  Such fun!!!

This is the frame that I did. I haven't ordered the pictures yet and can't print them, but I wanted to show you my frame too!

Thank you SO much to Roe for putting together this fabulous project and letting me dive into your gorgeous papers and fabulous flowers!

 Here is my take on Rosemary's project for us.  I placed my paper on top of the glass, so I could have my Prima and Martha Stewart flowers stand out from the frame.  I tied a nice bow, and it is nestled in the bouquet.  The metallic paper made a good frame for the photo, covering the bottles, as June mentioned.  I used an EK Success punch for the daisy border.  The bees, from Reflections, are just flitting all over inside and outside the frame, adding a lot of life and dimension to the project.  This will be a very special memory piece that will sit in a place of honor in Studio Bee! 

What would you like to frame??  Your challenge this week is to create a frame.... it can be on a card, layout, home decor, altered item, or some other type of frame... then come back and post it here!!  If you can't post it yourself, then email the picture and your contact information to us at BettyBeesBuzz @  and we will post it for you!
