My Phillies Bear!

The kids and I were having fun making our own Build A Bears
and I came up with this one. Yes, I'm a Phillies fan. It's not perfect and they don't wear red pants, but I liked him this way. You could make them into any mascot, really. These guys are lots of fun. Let me know what you come up with!

Build A Bear!

Some new goodies arrived today and I couldn't wait to try them out. Look! Isn't she cute? She's made with the New Sizzix dies that will be in the SU! holiday mini catalog that starts Sept. 1. I made her in felt and think I'll be turning her into an iron on for my daughter. The heart and bow are from a sizzlit, which isn't meant to cut more than paper, but it gave a good enough dent to finish trimming them out with scissors. I can't wait to play around and make a whole family of bears - and in different materials too. Paper, magnetic, felt, foam, oooh! wonder if shrinky dink film would work? Ahh, the possibilities!

What a busy summer! Lots going on with SU! as well as being home with the kids. We're headed to the beach for a week, but wanted to leave you with a sample from my last class. I modified it from a card I found surfing the net but can't find the original designer. I love how you can have many different looks with these circles.
My preorder from the upcoming holiday mini should come by the time I get back so I'll have more fun new things to play with and show you then. Hope you are all enjoying the end of the summer season!

This is the card I made for my son's birthday. He's 9 now so those "cute" cards don't quite cut it anymore. He took over my husband's ipod and had his cousin load a ton of songs on it for him to enjoy this summer. So when I saw Dawn Olchefske's ipod card I knew I had to case it! It was pretty easy, mostly punches and some stretchy cord. I thought this saying went well for the front and continued the Beatles song inside. He got a kick out of it so I'm happy.
