    Beary Sweet Designs Website Launched

    Hello Beary Sweet Friends!  Sorry I haven't been around on these parts lately.  I promise to get back into the swing of things here shortly.  Summer has me busy with the kids, and with the opening of our new sister site, I've been busier than ever.
    Click the logo to visit the new website!

    What's that, you didn't here?  Well, here is a brief synopsis...  For those of you that have cutting machines, or a Cricut machine with compatible software, I am now designing my own cutting files.  I've been designing my own stuff for years, so I thought I'd share my files and designs with everyone.  I'm also creating DIGITAL STAMPS!!!  I've always been intregued with graphic arts (I believe I missed my true calling), and I've since learned how to convert my .wpc files to all the other formats out there for the various cutting machines on the market.  I'm just starting to learn MTC and SCAL, and I don't own, and very rarely every used a Cricut machine.  Sorry friends, I'm a Pazzles Chick all the way!

    Our sister site is called BEARY SWEET DESIGNS.  You can check it out HERE!  We also have a facebook fan page that you can find HERE!  I can't produce files every day because I have other obligations that come first.  I do LOVE making them though.  It's my creative outlet when I can't get to my paper crafting supplies.  I do post a free file every Thursday too.

    We would also love to see you share your creations on either of our Fan Pages, so be sure to upload those photos!

    I'll have lots to catch you up on in the next few days.  I don't want to overwhelm your blog roll all at one time.  We even have a brand new Guest Designer that I am super excited to introduce (if you didn't already know).

    Until next time!

    Free Tear Bear Eyes and Nose Cutting File

    Well girls, you finally broke me.  I've spent a lot of time figuring out how to convert my file into usable formats for many cutting machine and software out there on the market.  Our Senior DT Member Patricia has been testing out my svg files over the past few nights.  Many of you have asked for clothes for your bears and I am happy to say that so far testing has gone VERY well and it looks like our sister site should be up and running by the end of the month.

    In the meantime, I have created my Tear Bear eyes and noses pattern for our Traditional Teddy in svg, wpc, dxf, gsd, ai, pdf, jpg, and eps.  This file is available for FREE for a limited time.  You can download the file HERE.  Since this is my first public file, we haven't had any testing on dxf or gsd files, so you feedback is of the utmost importance.  Once I am confident of this file, we will be removing the pre-cuts from our website.  My kids have lost interest in packaging these and I simply do not have the time to do it any longer.

    Get this FREE file while you can.  It is only available for a limited time and will be removed without notice.

    Until Next Time!

    Locals, Please Help Find Molly

    Hello Beary Sweet Friends.  I'm here today with an special request for our local friends.  My dear friend from high school, Sherri, has lost her precious pup Molly.  Molly holds a very special place in her heart and is sick over her disappearance.

    Molly was last seen near Frances Slocum State Park (Pennsylvania).  This was almost three weeks ago, so she can be anywhere now.  That was almost three weeks ago. She is all white and weighs about 13lbs. She had on a purple and white collar with tags and answers to Molly.   We are all hoping that someone has found her, and she is safe.  We are praying that someone will return her to her rightful owner.

    Here are some pictures of Molly and her buddy Splash.

    If anyone has seen Molly or has any information about her whereabouts, please email me at kimm@thebearyscrap.com.  Any help in bringing Molly back home is greatly appreciated.

    Until Next Time

    I am so excited to introduce you to a new stamp company in the industry... well, new to rubber.  Well, really, clear photopolymer stamps.

    Please welcome Some Odd Girl Stamps to The Beary ScrapKristy draws the cutest images and has recently added a line of clear photopolymer stamps to her line for those of us that like to get "inked up".  She even created a Chibi" for me that I use on my personal blog and my crafty facebook page.  You can read all the details about my chibi and how to get your own chibi HERE.  Some Odd Girl Hosts a bi-weekly challenge too.  How cool is that :).  Check out all the details on their Challenge blog HERE.

    Spring Cleaning SALE!

    Hello Beary Sweet Friends!  I hope you all had a fabulous Mother's Day.  I awoke to flowers on the kitchen table, handmade cards and a fresh cup of java courtesy of my 3 little munchkins.  We spent the day doing "the usual" stuff, getting caught up on some housework and laundry, hubby cut the grass and then we celebrated my nephew's 1st Birthday.  Not all that exciting here, but the fresh cup of coffee made by my kids was the best cup of coffee in the world!  Since Sunday, they have been making me coffee every morning!  What a treat :)

    Now that Spring is officially here, it is time for some serious Spring Cleaning.  I prefer to use the word OVERHAUL in this instance!  My office is overwhelmed with crafty goodness everywhere to the point I have a small pathway that leads to my desk.  Not to mention I have no place to craft besides my dining room table.  Hubby sure would like to see my crafty stuff back in my office where it belongs.
    This is just the start of it.  If you follow us on facebook you will know what I've just added to the clearance section as I update each product line's inventory and reassign the items to our clearance section.  I will be adding lots more goodies every evening.  This is by far the BIGGEST SALE I have ever done.

    Visit our website HERE.  I have a running list on the homepage of the most recent categories that are on liquidation.  You can also browse through our Clearance Department HERE as some items will only be found in the there.

    One thing you should keep in mind when shopping on our website:  Out of stock items may occur as inventory is reduced.  Please keep in mind that just because an item is in your cart, it does not mean it is yours just yet.  Inventory is not reduced from our website until after checkout is completed.  Another shopper may pick up the same item and check out before you.  When this happens, we will issue you a refund or a store credit for the out of stock item.  To be fair, all orders are filled by order number on a first come, first serve basis.

    Until next time,

    A few new products...

    Hello Beary Sweet Friends!  I hope today finds you all well and looking forward to the weekend.  In my case, I know that hubby will be working Saturday, and I will be tending to as much housework as I can.  These 60 hour work weeks hubby has been keeping are really getting to me!  I have so much to do for the shop and I am so far behind on housework it is sick!  This week is "spring cleaning" in our township.  It's the time of year when our township accepts almost anything that the residents need to get rid of at little or no cost.  All the clutter in my house simply must go.  Getting to it has been a chore with limited or NO help.  I only have until Saturday to get through it all.  The clutter is driving me insane!

    We have some new product in the store that arrived over the past week that I would like to share with you.

    Bo Bunny Gabrielle and Timepiece 6x6 paper pads have finally arrived.  We've also been restocked on roughly 20+ colors of Copic Markers, Ez Mount, and those adorable Popcorn Bear Stamps.

    Do you like Seam Binding.  It's the latest trend!  I'm please to let you all know that we now have 21 beautiful colors in stock on our website.  This stuff is truly awesome!  Use it just as it is, or if you like the "shabby chic" look, mist it with some water or your favorite misting spray, scrunch it up then let it dry.  Oh... so much fun to play with.

    We have also re-organized our **Clearance** category to make it easier to browse for the items you are most interested in.  More products have been added, and there is more to come.  The savings are huge - up to 75%, and we will be adding lots more over the weekend.  The amount of product we have is too much for the space that houses our inventory.  Our loss is your gain.  Anything on clearance is first come, first serve.  Just because it's in your cart, doesn't mean it's yours so be sure to act quickly.  Our clearance department has been getting cleaned out quickly... even before I have the chance to announce that something in on clearance.  If you place an order with us, and then find something else you "need", I will gladly combined the orders and issue you a refund for the shipping overage... only if your original order has not been shipped.

    Be sure to peek in and see what's new, and what is at great savings!

    Until next time!

    New Echo Park Summer Days in Stock!

    Hello my Beary Sweet Friends!  It's finally here, the latest collection from Echo Park appropriately titled "Summer Days".  Ohhh, there are brads, chipboard elements and rubons to accent this collection too.  And a yummy 6"x6" paper pad for all of our card making friends.  I don't know about you, but I can't wait for summer to get here.  Spring just isn't enough for me.  Florida weather is looking pretty good about now.  Okay, so I hear there is at least 3 months of 100+ degree temps, but it certainly beats 6 months of winter - YUCK!  There is always air conditioning and swimming pools, right?

    Here's a look at the entire collection...

    Available in single sheets and the collection kits.  To celebrate the arrival of these sweet papers, I have discounted it 25% OFF (instead of our usual 20% off) until Friday, April 22, 2011.

    We also received all the new 6"x6" paper pads from Echo Park.  I'm most excited about "Walk in the Park".  That was one of the very first Echo Park collections we brought into the shopped, and the first to sell out in record timing.  You can find the all the new 6"x6" paper pads HERE.

    Don't forget, there are coupon codes listed in the post below that you can use on your next Beary Scrap order until April 30, 2011.  It's a good time to get that extra savings!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Beary Sweet Challenge #24 - Wings!!!

    On behalf of our Beary Sweet Ladies, and myself,  we send a BIG thank you to everyone who joined our BSC #23 - we are so thrilled to see each and every one of you play along! We'll announce our Top 3 honorees on Sunday, April 17th. Thank you!

    It is that time of the month again, which means it's time for our new challenge. Well, I'm am almost 2 days late posting here, but it's better than not posting it at all - Right?.  "Bear" with me (no pun intended), I'm starting to get into somewhat of a routine.  Settling in to get back to the fun stuff has been difficult.  Emails answered (when my MS Outlook is working correctly), orders shipped, and new inventory added has been a big priority lately.  

    ***Speaking of emails... If you have emailed me recently and didn't get a response from me... please, please, please... email me again!!!***

    Back to the Challenge:  This time we're challenging you to share a project using the theme...


    Be creative with this one... feathers as wings, butterflies, birds... anything with "Wings".  Oh, this is going to be so much FUN!!!

    This challenge runs through April 30th at 11:59pm EST. We will announce the random gift voucher winner and our "Beary Sweet Top 3" from this challenge on April 17th on our BSC Blog.  Remember to read all the rules before entering.  You can find all of the details HERE!

    As always, we love when you play along with us.  We can't wait to see what you make.  And I can't wait to see what our Beary Sweet Ladies come up with.

    Until next time!

    FREE Easter Digi Sentiment Stamp!

    Hello Beary Sweet Friends!  I know I've been scarce on this neck of the woods, but it is with good reason.  Since we had some improvement in the weather here in PA, and my husband actually had a few hours off of work (only a few hours on Sundays), we've been sorting through stuff from the old brick and mortar shop.  I've been liquidating loose inventory on ebay, and hubby emptied the covered trailer that we've been using for storage to see what all is left to get rid of.  It's not as bad as we thought, but we are still sitting on a few displays and hundreds of paper trays.  If you know a store looking for some, please send them my way - LOL.  I don't know what to do with them all.  I figure by the time summer is here, we should be cleaned out and *hopefully* be back to some sort of normalcy and a lot less stuff (fingers crossed).  It was a bit sad to see everything stacked up in storage, but with the way life is for us right now, EVERYTHING has seemed to make sense and fell into place at the right time.  God doesn't make mistakes and I know he knew what he was doing when we *had* to close the location.  We were fortunate enough to follow the signs and take the right path.  All things happen for a reason, so I have been told... and believe.  On a good note, I finally found my new sewing machine that I LOVE because it does all sorts of crazy stitching.  I've only used it about 5 times, but I played with it a lot and love all of the features it has.  I can't wait to start using it again!

    Anyway, I had to take a "creative break", so I made a quick digi stamp for you (and me - hehehe).  I hope to have a few more finished up later this week.  No promises though - LOL.

    .png image with no white background
    .jpeg image (white background)
    As always, they can be resized in whatever program you are using.  The work great in MS Word too.  Just print and punch or cut out.

    Oh... I almost forgot!  We have new Pink Paislee papers in the store.  I wasn't thrilled with 2 of their new lines, so I didn't get them :(.  If you want them, let me know... but I DID order Butterfly Garden which is absolutely AMAZING!  The Ladies have already been playing with these papers.  Um... WOW!!!  Take a look...
    Layout created by Gini
    Card created by Patricia.
    Sweet!!!  I am out of basically all of the embellishments, but they are on re-order.  This line is HOT, HOT, HOT!  Does it tickle your fancy?  If so, check them out HERE.

    Maybe one more thing before I go... how about some COUPON CODES?  Would you like some?  Really???  Well, okay then.  Here it goes, and here is why.  It is SPRING!  That means summer is just around the corner.  Our first daffodil bloomed today, and that brought a HUGE smile to my face.  I wish summer would last as long as this past winter did.  Granted, we are dealing with a lot of rain right now; however, April Showers Bring May Flowers and I can't wait to see leaves on the trees and flowers blooming in my flower beds!  Enough gibber-jabber... here are your COUPON CODES for our shop...
