... the Queen Bee line. Seriously. Can you tell? :)
Do you have heritage photos you'd like to have a special place to store? I've created a layout that is also a pocket to hold some old photos that my mom has given me of my ancestors. I really love the colors in the Queen Bee line by Pink Paislee and think they work wonderfully with these old photos.
To create the folder, I cut the Honeycomb (brown) paper a bit longer and a bit wider than the Honeybee (yellow). At the top, I folded the brown paper over about 1-2 inches. I laid the yellow polkadot paper over the base paper and machine stitched around the edges to create the pocket. (Don't stitch the top closed.) You can create a clasp to hold the flap down with the Bella Brads. Adhere one brad to the flap and one to the front piece. Tie together with twine. The doily is a paper doily that I found in the baking section of AC Moore, and I cut a piece of Beehive paper to dress up the flap as well.
The Queen Bee frame stamp is stamped on the Beehive paper and cut out. I added some of the Queen Bee rub ons next to the photo. A tip with the rub ons: cut them into any shape you want! Here I just cut a small rectangle, but you could cut it into a circle or star shape before adding it to your page. The flower was made with crepe paper.
Here are some of the old photos I am going to put inside. They are all families of my great grandparents. Love looking at these, there are so many interesting details. A picture is worth a thousand words! Funny to think that I was created from these people! (well, you know what I mean) :)
Thanks for taking a peek today!
