KCK Challenge - Bee Garden [Updated]

[Updated 30 September 11:38pm]

Phew! Really late to do this but luckily I'm in time! I've been working non-stop, teaching and talking all day long, so by the time I reach home I am really exhausted! As I type this post, I'm on a cab rushing to another class. I guess this is the time of hectic lifestyle in singapore. LOL.

I was thinking about this KCK challenge for a long time. As soon as I saw it, I was very keen to try my hand on it, most of the reason was because it's a local challenge!

Here's my take on it:


I love collecting postcards, the mini sized ones, and also to take poloroid cards from my extended Diana camera. And to house some of the collection that I use on the postcards to my overseas friends, I decided to make a garden to house the minis.
 
Some close-ups of the project:

The curly one there? It's done by the KCK Royal Flourish Deco Die.. One of my very first die I bought when I first got my diecut machine - Easi Kutz. Small and handy, it helps me greatly! Now I cant imagine my life without it. I'm sure it'll spell disaster... LOL!

The diecuts from KCK were very versatile for use, and I easily used it as a slider for the minis! See the middle portion?

Honestly, these are the 2 drawers leftover from my previously half done project. Carefully wrapping them up, they become shelves for the postcards.  
 
 
I've also used the bees for this garden theme project - I love bees and flowers, they make me hyper-ly happy! This is going to sit on my table pretty!


I do love this little mini garden for my minis.. Hahaha, it rhymes. The twine round the swing as well as the flowers from KCK... I still think there'll be more wire twistings coming up.. This technique is really hooking me in every project!
 
Thanks KCK for the lovely challenge!
