Bzzzz...... is that a bee that you hear??? SVGs by Bee has been launched!

So many SVG shops have been opening up recently online, but this shop is really special to me.  This store - SVGs by Bee is owned/designed by my great friend, Belinda Brown.  I don't know if you remember me blogging back in February about how I met her at California Adventure Disney Park while I was on my vacation down in LA. 

I met her last year when she started stalking my blog.  She would literally leave a comment on every single blog post that I did, and because I just started blogging, she really made my day especially all I got was 1 or 2 comments.  We started corresponding, and in no time, we became really good friends. 

So - yes, this girl, who I've only met online - dragged her whole family (took her kids out of school) and dragged her hubby to drive for over 2 hours each way to come see me!  Really - isn't that amazing?  If I came into your city - would you drive for 4 hours so you can see me???  You don't even know what I'm like, if I really look like the girl you see on FB - I could be this really old woman, or perverted guy!  Well, I'd like to hear, "Of course!" - but I don't think that most people would!  But wow - we (not just her and I - but our hubbies, our kids, and even my parents!) totally clicked and spent the whole day together.  Ever since - it's been a very, very special friendship.

Anyway - this friend, which she goes by Bee - decided to learn Inkscape (I have NO idea how to even work that program) and design SVGs herself.  How awesome is that?  I'm so happy for her, and just a couple of weeks ago - her online store just launched!

Instead of just blogging and letting you know about her, I wanted to use her file so you can see how cute it is! 

I used The Fuzzy Bee file to make a simple, yet cute shaped card.  Here it is!


Isn't this cute???  This file is only a dollar!



I made a shadow layer on MTC and cut two of them out, glued them together to make a card.  Each of the layers have foam stickers to give dimension.  The beehive paper is from Country Drive collection from Echo Park, the twine is from Twisted Sugar Twine, and the stamp is from My Thoughts Exactly's The Birds and the Bees.  The wings have a vellum on the back layer, and the black body has been embossed with Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder.

Oh, and while I was blogging the Paper Dolls, she designed SVGs for one of our weekly challenges! She made a really cute set of files for us:

This file is also sold in her store right now - The house was Framed by a Heart & and a Button!

With this file, I made embellishment for these 3D shoes (the shoes file is from MyGrafico).


It really brings out these shoes, don't they?

As I said, she's just starting out, so stay tuned for more cute and orignal files in her store!

Please help me support my friend and go join her FB page, and let her know that I sent ya :) I want to give her all the love I can to wish her much success in her store.

Thanks girls!

Have a great day!
