Buzz and Bumble perfectly coordinates with the photos of my great grandmother's sepia photos. She was a lovely woman and we have great stories about her. We have wonderful stories of her and everything I have heard about her tell of a lovely graceful women who tragically lost family members too soon, loved to garden, and was an excellent mother. I wanted to combine the so trendy hexagon shapes with the antique photos while showcasing this beautiful woman. CTMH features the paper with several wonderful stamp sets and accessories: Honeycomb stampset, Brown & Tan Glitter Paper, Keyboard Kraft Alphabet, Brown & Tan Sparkles Assortment, Durables Artisan studs, and cute Buzz and Bumble Assortment of adhesive backed wooden accessories. I used the Pattern 2 from the CTMH publican Make It From Your Heart, a wonderful book full of scrapbook and card patterns and ideas. I listed the recipe for this layout below.

At the last minute, I needed a quick gift for the Oscar's party a friend was hosting and a birthday gift for a co-worker. I had all the my Buzz and Bumble materials out and I grabbed last month's Stamp of the Month: Home Sweet Home to make these very, very quick wine bottle tags inspired by Tamara Pope's tags I found on Pinterest. I used all the exact same supplies: accessories, paper pack, colors, Artiste cartridge, and adding a little Baker's Twine to create a total different look and more importantly gifts in 30 minutes!
