Queen of the Hive

Double Page done by Tammy

This is of my niece (the title says it ALL)

Hi everyone and Welcome back to the Twocricutfriends blog. This week we are featuring the WALK IN MY GARDEN cartridge. I just love this cart and have used it alot. JUST an FYI: I have another LO that was done using mainly this same cart on MY PINK STAMPER in the gallery section, its in the walk in my garden album. I am so honored to be featured there. Ok enough of that, now on to this weeks LO. I had such fun with this one. When this LO came to me, I grabbed my Gypsy and started putting it together.The title was BEE Utiful baby till I changed it to this current one. I did transfer this one like I have the others however, the font was cut using my G cause its Gypsy font. Although I didn't use a lot of different cuts, I just love this one and putting all those bees together took awhile. LOL They are cut at 1" and 1 1/2". The base paper is from the Mariposa DCWV card stock stack (I thought it looked like the color of honey). The corners paper and the lettering paper came from Linen closet. I used coordination's CS for the hives and blue pic layers and all the pink on the tag and the 3 squares layer (Page 2). All of my bee paper came from scraps. The patterned paper behind the pics came from spring stack 09 ( I think).


Everything but the font, corner piece, and pic layers is WIMG cart. I pop dotted some of the bees on this page for dimension.

Wanted to show how I embossed the hives and lightly inked them.


Everything on page 2 (except for corner and pic layers and font) is cut with WIMG, I also pop dotted some of the bees here too.

The 3 squares is a cut on the cart (I didn't weld them) they were already like that. I think if memory serves me right its a shadow to the seed packets. I used the center section for a journal spot. Just a note: I used my DS copy and paste feature and sized the pink to sit just inside the green, but it wouldn't size exactly right so that's why they are off a bit. I was still very happy with it. I did the same technique to the hive on this page as I did on page 1.

Well that is it for me this week. I hope you enjoyed this LO . I would love to have comments to see how I'm doing. Thanks so much for looking today and come back Friday to see what Debbie has come up with using this cart.
