Back to School with Build A Bear

This past week at Summer Scrap Camp we actually had a BOY join our group of stamping girls!

The ages for this fun troupe of stampers ranges from 9 to 13, and every two weeks we’ve gotten together to make 4-6 pages for our scrapbooks plus a couple of other fun projects.  So far the girls had made Father’s Day cards, the Fabulous Fleece Flowers (check out the Video Tutorial), the Faster Fleece Flower bracelets (another Video Tutorial) and several other fun projects.

Definitely the hands-down favorites were both fleece flower varieties, but with a BOY joining us for one of the Scrap Camp sessions, I figured fleece flowers weren’t going to go over well 😉

But everyone loves Build-A-Bear, right?  And everyone needs back to school notebooks, right?

This notebook features the Build-A-Bear dies for the Big Shot diecut machine.  For the name, I used a variety of Stampin’ Up! punches: Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch, Scallop Square Punch, 1-3/4″ Circle Punch & Curly Label Punch.

The background is cut with the Top Note Big Shot Die, and the bear is created with the Stampin’ Up! Bear die, and the clothes are cut with Beary Essentials.  Cute, isn’t it?  Good to note–the clothing die also includes pants, sneakers and a little jacket so it’s perfectly boy-accepted.

Everyone loved the project, girls and boys alike, and I think there will be a nice collection of Build-A-Bear notebooks when school starts next week!
