Honey Bee Layout by Narelle

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Narelle has created a lovely Layout to share today.
I hope you enjoy it. I just love the colours Narelle has used, it looks so pretty!

Papers: Echo Park "Country Drive" 12 x 12  Collection Pack
Cardstock: Black
We R Memory Keepers Twine
Adhesives: Xpress it D/sided Tape, Foam Mounting Tape, Foam squares

1.        Trim Echo Park “Bees Knees” paper to 11 ¾  inch square.  Cut out approx 8” of the centre of the paper and set aside, (see image) then adhere the large piece to smooth black cardstock.
2.       Trim Echo Park “Just Dandy” paper to 9 ¾ inch square , and adhere to a 10 inch square piece of black cardstock.  Adhere in centre of layout.
 3.       Cut the 6 inch honey bee square from the reverse of the Echo park “leafy tree tops” paper and mat on black cardstock.  Adhere in top left of the layout, approx ½ inch in from edge.
4.       Mat the bee journaling block on black cardstock and add title.  For emphasis, stick the major words on black cardstock and then cut out.  Adhere journaling block in lower left corner of the layout, 1 inch from the left and ½ from the bottom.
5.       Matt 6x4 photo on black cardstock and double wrap Twine around photo and tie in a bow.  Use foam tape to adhere photo to LO 2 ½ inches from top and ½ inch from right.
6.       Fussy cut flowers from the off-cuts of “Just dandy” and adhere to layout with some foam tape.  Fussy cut 5 bees on loops from the 8 inch square of “Bees knees” and tuck these in around your LO.
   7.       Add some bee stickers from the Echo Park embellishment sheet to the corners of your LO & you are done!
