It's TIME to get going for a New Year!

Happy New Year from Studio Bee!!
I wanted to share an altered clock design with you. My friend, Claire, bought me this white clock, and I replaced the regular face with the new Bee-jeweled face, just for Studio Bee!! Isn't it cute?






Altering a clock face is an easy project. Just remove the plastic face plate with a screwdriver. Be careful to lift it without scratching it. Pull off the hands (they push back on when you are finished!) Then measure the size of the whole face. I cut my circle with my Cricut. I added the scalloped green circle, then used my Crop-A-dile to punch the hole in the center. I stamped the bees at 12, 3, 6 and 9; colored them with Copics and a Sakura glitter pen on the wings. Add green gems at the other hours, some doodled flight paths, rub on letters, and voila' ~ we have a custom made clock!
Now it's time for me to get back to work :-D
Happy crafting ~ and Happy New Year!!
