Aloha, all! A couple of weeks back, I told you how much I used to love playing with paper dolls when I was a little girl, and I shared a card made with some Build-A-Bear Workshop stamps. So when I saw this color challenge from the Diva Coffee Break Design Team, my heart went back to that little girl bear from the Beary Best Friends Stamp Set. So here she is … [Read more...] about More Paper Dolls for the Divas!
Aloha, all! When I was a little girl (loooooong time ago!) one of my favorite toys was paper dolls. I'd love it when my mom would bring home a book or a box with the doll and her clothes all ready for me to cut out. I was in little girl heaven for days! And here I am at it again! The minute that Stampin' Up! came out … [Read more...] about Still a Kid at Heart!
Aloha, all! I just put that last card in the mail this morning (Uh, oh! Not only won't it get there by Monday, it won't get there until Tuesday because Monday is Presidents Day!). But while I was licking the envelope, I was reminded that, while I keep sharing cards with you, I forget that I decorate the envelopes, too. Here's one of the cards from earlier in the week showing the envelope … [Read more...] about Don’t Forget the Envelopes!
Aloha, all! After I finally got the craft room back in shape, I started tearing it apart again to make these cards for our grandchildren. The bears are from the Build A Bear Workshop set, Beary Best Friends (118052) and the greeting is from the set, Beary Nice Wishes (118050). While these sets were introduced in the 2009 Holiday Mini Catalog, which has expired, they're in the 2010 … [Read more...] about Valentines for the Grandkids
Aloha, all! I just can't stay away from the Build-A-Bear Workshop stuff that's in the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2009 Holiday Mini Catalog! But I promise: I'll get to the holiday stuff really quickly! Enough of the bears (or not). This lovely lady is stamped on Stampin' Up! Watercolor paper using Jet Black Stazon ink, and watercolored using Ballet Blue (you haven't seen that color … [Read more...] about OK–A Few More Bears!
Aloha, all! I know, I know--they're paper BEARS not paper dolls. But playing with these Build-A-Bear Workshop (BABW) bears and their clothes has reminded me so much of my childhood times playing with paper dolls. Yesterday I shared one of the BABW Sizzix Bears that I had made up with some magnets to work with a Magnetic White Board. I realize as I've been playing (er, working?) with … [Read more...] about Build-A-Bear Paper Dolls
Aloha, all! I mentioned earlier that I was going to be working to make a magnet board for my grandchildren to use for the Build-A-Bear-Workshop (BABW) bears and their clothes. I've finally go the magnet routine down, and thought I'd share it. I'm not sure when I'm going to get back to more of this project because, believe it or not, there's more than BABW and the Sizzix Bears in the … [Read more...] about More Paper Dolls (er, Bears)
Aloha, all! By now everyone seems to know that our 2009 Holiday Mini Catalog is going to feature a TON of stuff related to the Build-A-Bear-Workshop (or BABW). What fun! And I have been having a TON of fun trying to figure out how to play with my new toys to show them off to you. Because I just want to keep playing, and not bother with sending out newsletters and writing blog … [Read more...] about Build-A-Bear-Workshop and Stampin’ Up!
