Hi this is Terri from http://www.scrappinwiththebug.blogspot.com/. Wow where has this year already gone.
A few weeks ago a friend asked me to help her create a cute little "bear" theme for her son's 1st birthday. She also owns a cricut and wasn't too failure with it. So I told her to come over and we would play I mean create something. We brain stormed for a while and came up with what she wanted.
This took us a few weeks to put together as it was lots of little things - and then also design changes, waiting for a special product.
The fun thing about the bear is we did laminate him - and I made several extra noses - they used the noses with names on them to play pin the nose on the bear.
The paper is all printed from the imagine - and what I did was just made little .4" small circles on the screen then colored them differently . She wanted to keep with a royal, teal, green, light blue theme. The shirt comes on the Birthday Bear but not the pants. She wanted little pants (actually her husband said it looked like a skirt w/ the banner). So I found another bear w/ pants and made them and tweaked them slightly on the gypsy. I knew she was going to use this a few different places/times so I actually cut it out 3 times 2 out of cardstock and 1 out of thin cereal box so it would with stand the different uses.
All the letters are from Birthday Bash cartridge - these on the Welcome banner were cut at 3/4", and the name Brayden cut at 3/4" welded w/ the gypsy.
We used stock card stock from Michael's - and cut a 5" scallops, 4" circles and 3" letters.
The smaller bears holding the banner are cut at 5".
I again selected small circles on the imagine at .8" and flood field the circles w/ the different colors. I then cut out the 1 from Birthday Bash that measures at 5.12 x 3.22. (I used the gypsy and then cut it off on my expression). The bear measures at 2" printed again on the iron on fabric. The name Brayden is 1" x 5 long welded. We did use the layer function and I will say this was very easy to put together. Just iron and it was done. The cool thing is it is washable.
We also made the cute little birthday hat. That is also printed iron-on fabric. I will admit I didn't make the bib - my friend did though - using just regular iron on transfer paper. The saying is very cute, "It's about time I got some cake to wash down all that milk". She also printed it on the back of his shirt.
Well I hope you enjoyed this cute little birthday decorations.
