Today we have a beautiful baby boy card to share. Design team member Heidi Blankenship created this adorable card using a white cardstock base and alternating blue and white layers on top. She created the third layer by stamping a piece of white cardstock with Memento Sky Blue ink using the CL-02077 Shooting Stars Sling Stitched Background Stamp from JustRite Papercraft, and finished it off by inking the edges of the cardstock. The main image was stamped with Momento Rich Cocoa ink using CR-04815 Special Delivery Clear Stamps and coloured using Spectrum Noir markers.
We have another design team project to share with you today! Check out this "uber cute" altered clipboard created by design team member Anna Fallas. Anna used Bella Rose paper for the base and trimmed the edge of the clipboard with a dainty lace.
Anna hung several chain tassels from the top of the frame. Several charms from the Attic Treasures (Set B) charm collection hang from the chain. And the best part is...the clip is still fully functional!
Today, we'd like to share another beautiful mini album created by design team member Ginger Ropp. Ginger used the Archivast paper collection by Prima, which coordinates perfectly with all the metal embellishments found in our shop at Zibbet.
To add some balance to the cover, Ginger added a small cluster of paper flowers and a resin banner embellishment in the top left corner, then finished the spine off with some corrugated cardboard. The edges of all the pages were inked using Time Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Ginger added a ton of texture throughout the mini album by continuing to combine the corrugated cardboard with the metal embellishments and paper flowers, with a variety of the cut-aparts from the paper collection scattered throughout.
This mini album is filled with a ton different pockets and flaps throughout. The flap on the page shown above was finished off with a Tim Holtz on the edge die from Sizzix.
On the page shown here, Ginger used this same die to create a pocket on the right coupled with the Tim Holtz cabinet dies on the left to create a small flap.
BIG changes are to come at ButterBeeScraps! For several months, I have been fighting with inventory control issues on Zibbet. It has been an absolute nightmare, a time drain, and an inconvenience for some of my customers...who I send a big THANK YOU to for being very understanding and patient.
Well, today was the straw that broke the camel's back! The ButterBeeScraps website will be completely revamped (again...big sigh) and our entire store moved onto the website. For more info on all the positive changes you - my customers - will be seeing, please hop on over to my YT channel and watch the video...I've even included a few bloopers at the end for a chuckle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjipHUGhdWw&feature=youtu.be
So, why am I telling you this? Well, number 1, I want you all to be in the know, and number 2, no new products will be added to the store while we are revamping the website. Any items that are currently in stock will be restocked as they sell, so you don't have to worry about running out of your favourite items.
Thank you to everyone for visiting us here on our blog, and supporting our business - your loyalty will be rewarded in the near future ;)

Hello everyone! Today, I have a jewelry piece to share with you. I designed a necklace using several products from ButterBeeScraps Artistic Treasures.
I had some fun creating this piece and adding some color to the bronze filigree pieces. The base is a beautiful Bronze Square Filigree and I painted it with Lumiere Pearl Turquoise Paint. Once the paint was dry I used steel wool to buff the filigree piece so some of the paint would be removed and the bronze metal would show. Doing this gives the metal piece a patina look.
Next I painted the Bronze Flower 8426 using Vintaj Patina Paint Quartz and Ruby. I painted the bottle petals with Quartz. For the middle layer of petals I mixed the Quartz and Ruby paint. Then for the top layer of petals I used the Ruby paint. Once the paint was dry I used E6000 to adhere the square and flower filigree pieces. Then when the adhesive was dry I gave the metal pieces a couple coats of Krylon Crystal Clear Matte Finish.
Hello everyone! Today, we have a beautiful Altered Wooden and Wire Heart Jewelry Wall Hanging to share with you. Design Team Member, Anna Fallas created this pretty piece.
Anna found this wooden and chicken wire heart at her local Joann store. She painted it using parchment and Martha Stewart pearl acrylic paints. Then she used beautiful laces and trims along with metal embellishments to alter the heart.
