Sneak Peak of Buzz and Bumble

One of the BEST things about being a Close To My Heart consultant is that we get a one month preview for the new products to be released in February.  I received my shipment of new products yesterday and was up late last night trying to get everything organized before I started playing.  The first thing I wanted to play with was the new Buzz & Bumble kit.  I just love that name!   I ordered the Workshop On the Go Kit which comes with some REALLY cute matching accents - little wooden bees. flowers and wax seals (not really wax but they sure look real!)..  Our Workshop On the Go Kits include an exclusive D-size stamp, instruction brochure, 6 B&T pattern papers, and 8 sheets of cardstock and coordinating embellishments.  After I created the 2 layouts for the kit I had plenty of paper left over to create even more.

I love this week's Friday Mashup Challenge and thought Buzz & Bumble was perfect for it!  The challenge was to make a project using different patterns or the colors shown in their picture (shown below my card).  Or mash it up and do both!

Here is the card I came up with using the Deconstructed Sketch #84.

The stamped images are from the exclusive stamp set that is included with the Buzz & Bumble Workshop On the Go.  I used one of the new background stamps Distressed Backgrounds for the piece behind the "Seeds" image.  I had to use Burlap Ribbon here - a perfect fit for this paper!  The little accents are new for spring - Durables Artisan Studs.  There are two sizes included. I used the small size on this card. I can already tell I'm going to be ordering more of these!

All of the new products will be available February 1!
