Teddy Bear Tuesday ~ Band Leader and New Year

If you haven't seen the Cricut Cart Teddy Bear Parade, you are missing out on some really cute bears! Here are two bears I received from a friend who was in a Teddy Bear swap on the Cricut Circle MB.

The marching band leader {on the left} was made by Jennifer {her blog} and the paper she used for his hat and coat is flocked and feels like velvet. The new year bear on the right was made by Memurz {her blog} and his sash is a sparkly glitter paper.

Check back next Tuesday for more bears!

Teddy Bears In OZ

Welcome to the Teddy Bears in Oz Blog Hop! 

You should have arrived her from Sara's blog. Today we are featuring teddy bears created from the Cricut Lite cartridge, Teddy Bear Parade, dressed as characters from the Wizard of Oz! How fun! If you are just visiting my blog, you can start your journey down the yellow brick road at Renee's blog.

The character I am sharing with you is the Wicked Witch of the West! I altered some of the images on the Teddy Bear cart for the witch and added a cape and some shoes (from the Paper Doll Dress Up cart). After all, it was all about the shoes and the Wicked Witch had some ugly ones! Renee has the CCR files for the Wizard of Oz Teddy Bears available on her blog.

Your next visit down the yellow brick road is to Narelle's blog. Wonder who will be waiting there?

Thanks for stopping by and watch out for flying monkeys!

A Few More Christmas Gifts

For each of my Sister-In-Laws, I added their name and Merry Christmas to a plastic platter. I used Plantin Schoolbook for the name and Quarter Note for the Merry Christmas. The platters came from Walmart.

For my nephews and niece, I found ear buds with a retractable cord {oh how I dislike those wires flopping around}. Since they were all the same, I used a bit of vinyl and added a monogram. The boys have a single letter monogram that I made using Varsity Letter and the girls have a 3 letter monogram I made using Stork's Delivery.

And my cute little puppy dog got a pink tote bag {to carry all her stuff when she goes to be boarded} and I added her name using Heat Transfer Vinyl.

All Hearts Come Home for Christmas

This is a floating frame {we placed a piece of white paper in the frame because she wanted to display it on her buffet table} I made for my MIL for Christmas. I used a variety of Cricut carts {Craft Room Basics, Something to Celebrate, Art Philosophy, Joys of the Season, Christmas, MS Seasonal Cake Art, Beyond Birthdays and Quarter Note} and designed it in CCR. I then cut the design in vinyl and used transfer tape to apply it to the outside of the frame. I used a 12 x 12 frame from Hobby Lobby.
