Build-a-Bear Color Match Game

Today is the day that the December issue of the Stampin’ Success magazine will be online and begin mailing.  I can’t wait to see it – why?  Because I should be in it! If you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator you will receive the magazine so look for me!  I can only think of one other time I was in a publication and it was our Annual Report for the company that I last worked for – but my picture showed the back of my head because the photographer liked my hair – so you couldn’t even tell it was me…anyway…..

I sent in my Build-a-Bear idea for thecmg-bears October contest (so I think I sent in actually in September) and it is getting published in the December issue as the winning entry for the Kidding Around contest.  I took my sleeping bag idea and turnecmg-instructionsd it into a Color Match Game for kids.  I made a sleeping bag using each of the colors in the Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper – “Green”, “Orange”, “Pink”, “Blue”, and “Yellow”.  Then I made a Build-a-Bear with matching pajamas for each sleeping bag.  I decorated one of the skinny tins that Stampin’ Up! has for sale in the clearance section of the online store.  The sleeping bags and bears fit inside.  I used My Digital Studio to create the instruction sheet that I attached inside the lid.   I don’t know what photos they will have in the magazine but here are the ones I took before I mailed it away.

I’m working on writing the instructions for the project.  So I’ll post that when I have those ready.  It was very exciting to win the contest and then have a phone interview.  I was very nervous and I think I babbled on about who knows what.  I’ll try to post the article here…

Ok I think I figured out how to get it copied out of the magazine so I can include here.

Here is the little article:

And in the same issue is a write-up on my upline Wendy Randall – a full page article!   And we got our first peek at the new Occasions Mini catalog – with NEW products!! And the new Sale-A-Bration catalog – you’ll want them all! And new Decor Elements too!  Oh my goodness I can’t believe they keep coming up with all these new things that I just have to have.

The dates for the Occasions Mini catalog are Jan 5, 2010 – April 30, 2010 and Sale-A-Bration will be Jan 5, 2010 – March 31, 2010.

Thanks for stopping by today – this is so exciting!
