How adorable is this little trick or treat bag! Yet another idea from regionals...though I have had a little white bag ready to make something similar, just haven't gotten around to it yet! Though my idea involved putting hte child's name on the bag to personalize it. Here everything is made out of paper so it is disposable if it gets dirty or ripped after allt eh candy collecting! I also had the idea to die cut the bear and clothes out of felt with iron on paper on the back and iron them on to a canvas bag that can be used year after year. Once I make one I will be sure to post it. And if you don't have the big shot but would like the reusable canvas bag, don't worry I will probably have them for sale!

Just thought I would share some of the Build a Bear dolls that can be created with our new dies for the Big Shot. This photo is from a recent Stampin Up Regional Convention and shared by one of the ladies in the group I am in. There are some really cute ideas for these little bears. I have been making them and putting them on popsicle sticks for Zach to play with...and of course he loves them!

Be sure to check the link to my calendar of events. I have posted class dates and descriptions from now until the end of the year! Yes I am going to try and hold them all even with the arrival of the new baby somewhere in there. I figure maybe you will come to a class just so you can see and hold the new little one!

Isn't it adorable!!! So during Stampin Up's convention this year, they were talking about their collaboration with build a bear. They made an announcement about these adorable bears being available and that they only had enough for 1 per demonstrator at convention. I didn't go to convention this year, so I figured there would be no way I could get my hands on one of these little guys! BUt I met with my upline last week and she had brought me a present from convention...and wouldn't you know...it was a build a bear! She raced to the memento mall ( fun SU logo items at convention) when they announced there may be a few left and she got me one! How lucky am I? How awesome is she? Look how cute this little bear is!! Stampin Up in embroidered on the bottom of her paw, a cute in color bow by her ear...and an adorable stamp that has a paw print and reads "Life without stamps...unbearable" How adorable!!
Just had to share how cute it was!
