Build-A-Bear Boy

Stampin up build a bear bigz die

I decided my Build-A-Bear Girl deserved a companion.  Meet her beary handsome guy.  He looks pretty dapper in his Pawsitively Prints Designer Paper (available Sept. 1) jacket and pants. I had a ball mixing and matching his "wardrobe" options. 

Are you ready for an amazing Holiday Mini Catalog?  The exclusive Stampin' Up! Build-A-Bear collection of designer paper, stamps and die cuts will be available for customer purchase on September 1.  The Holiday Mini Catalog will be available for download on my blog shortly after Stampin' Up! releases it!  Stay Tuned! 


  • It's a blast to piece these delightful patterns together.  The Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper (available Sept. 1) offers small prints that beautifully mirror delightful fabrics.
  • Stampin' Up! Beary Essentials Bigz Die produces the jacket, shirt, jeans and shoes.  The shoes have two small holes . . . perfect for lacing with linen thread or the skinny strip of Night of Navy card stock I used (ditto the buttons).
