There have been alot of changes at Bumble Bee Crafts new and exciting ones....and what better way to kick of the new year than with some creative inspiration..

Donna Salazar is one of Bumble Bee's newest lines..

Here is a layout and a double tri-fold card using her Artistic Winter papers and her Weathered Winter range
These new paper ranges are PERFECT for the cardmaker and scrapbooker with her Artistic ranges you can get even more creative by adding water colours, chalks and even blending pens

To make the above card you will need
2 x 15cm x 30cm
2 x 15cm x 10cm
2x 15cm x 15cm

With the first 2 you have cut (15cm x30cm) you will need to score at 2" 4" 8" and 10"
then length ways cut 1 " in from the 2" up to the 10" then concentina fold) this may take a little bit of fiddling around to get it to sit right do this to both pieces of paper

The 2 pieces that are cut 15cm by 10cm are used to join the two that you have just folded ...
Place one on the top of the two that have been folded and one on the bottom this will join them to make one huge double tri fold card the centre will be able to hold a 6x4 photo

the last two pieces that have been cut 15 cm x15cm will be used for the front cover you will need to score them both at 2" and fold

These are then attached to the front of the double tri-fold card glue along the 2' fold and attach....the inside of the cover is big enough to put a 6x4 photo

Once it is all put together it's time to have some fun and DECORATE..

This is great for a card or even a mini-album.

The above layout is on Decorating my Christmas Tree and as per usual I have way to many photo's that I wanted to scrap so I ended up making the base of an exploding box to attach to my layout ( You will need a 12x12 piece of cardstock divide into 3"x3" squares you should have 3 rows or 3 once this is done cut out the 4 corners once this is done fold into a small sqaure...decorate and you are done)

Here are some more single Tri-fold cards and Double Tri-Fold Cards that I have done...the possibilities are endless with what you can do.  The papers I have used of the below cards are 3 Bugs Tool Time.

I hope that you have enjoyed our first post for the NEW year...There is going to be lots of inspiration, competitions and tutorials going on on this blogs this year we hope you have as much FUN creating as we do.

Tomorrow we will have some My Little Shoebox inspiration
