Today marks the final Mojo Monday 100th anniversary sketch celebration. This MOJOMARY sketch is my very own (note that I flipped it). What an honor to be part of Julee's Mojo Maker team and celebration!
Isn't this Build-A-Bear girl sweet? She is simple and incredibly fun to put together, too. Stampin' Up! has created exclusive Build-A-Bear Dies, stamp sets and coordinating designer paper for the Holiday Mini Catalog (available Sept. 1). Be ready to say "wow!"
- The new Bigz Bear Die offers the bear die cut (4 3/4" high), facial parts (I used Whisper White and Chocolate Chip Textured) and signature Build-A-Bear heart (Pretty in Pink Textured). TIP: After cutting the bear in Creamy Caramel Textured card stock, I used card stock scraps to cut the mouth, nose, eyes and heart.
- The Bigz Bear Essentials Die allowed me to add the shirt, skirt, cuffs and shoes . . . it also includes a jacket, pants and second pair of shoes for a boy counterpart (or a girl, depending on how you want to dress her 🙂
- TIP: The Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper offers tiny fabric-like prints, ideal for making "clothes." Pawsitively Prints colors are Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Ballet Blue, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie.
- I used the designer paper for her purse, shirt, shoes and the 1 1/4" squares in the background.
- The purse, bow, belt and heart "buckle" are from the Beary Girl Sizzlets Die.
- The interior gets a splash of pizzazz, too. The "Happy Bearthday" sentiment is from Beary Nice Wishes (available Sept. 1)
The Build-A-Bear dies and stamps are going to be hot sellers. Wait until you see the Kooky Spooky and Beary Merry outfits. Stampin' Up! has assured us that the Build-A-Bear line will be extended beyond the Holiday Mini.
