Beary Nice Valentine

There’ a really fun sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week — I like that it has two stripes across the page instead of the usual one. This gave me a chance to play with some of the new goodies from the Occasions Mini catalog. I love, love, love these new Framelits! I hope … Continue reading »

Bears are Grrreat!

We were very fortunate to have children’s author Ben Mikaelsen visit school last week. He gave an amazing and powerful presentation. If you ever have a chance to hear him speak, or to have him come to your school, I highly recommend it! One of the things he spoke about was his daily life with … Continue reading »

I have mostly girls in the club, so I decided to make a cute little witch bear with the colors.  … Continue reading »

Thank You Beary Much!

Wow! I just love this Build-a-Bear stuff! Stamps, die cuts, embosslits… They are all so much fun! When I saw this week’s color challenge at Pals Paper Arts I knew it would work perfectly with the boy bear. Then of course came the question — do I make one on the Big Shot, or use … Continue reading »
