I couldn't leave out the bears......

It wouldn't be a tour of the mini catalog without some Build A Bear. Today is the last day of the tour so be sure to strap on your seat belt and take the ride :)

This really isn't "holiday" per say...but the build a bear is released in the holiday mini - so that counts, right? I made a two page layout for today. I had tons of fun with the bears!!!!
First, if you have never been here before on a scrapbook day....I don't put my little one's face online so she is covered up for a reason. I have had people wonder why I took pictures with scraps on my pages before :)
The background page is regal rose. The designer series paper is from tall tales. Each photo was matted with rose red. I cut out flowers from the designer series paper for the sequence of events. I then stamped the numbers from calendar numbers and letters with brilliant blue onto whisper white and punched them out with the 1/2 inch circle punch. They are mounted with stampin dimensionals. The "BUILD A BEAR" title was cut with my big shot and the billboard sizzlet strip die.

I cut the bears with my big shot as well. There is one main Build a Bear Stampin' Up Bigz Bear die and then I used the Stampin' Up Beary Essentials die to cut out the clothes. It doesn't get any easier than that folks ;)

Here are the bears up close. I think sponging their edges really brought them to life :)

Leave me some love to let me know what you think. If you have enjoyed my blog as part of your tour, please book mark my site, I would love to have you back.

Any products used here can be bought through your Stampin' Up! demonstrator. If you don't already have a demonstrator, contact me. I would be happy to help you out.

Don't leave just need to hop on over to Becky's Blog, she is the next stop on the tour. :)

These are great pages! I really like the bears but my son is almost too old to use the bears with. I may still fall for them, they are just so much fun. Thank you for sharing your creations!
