New Patterns and a Mystery Pattern


It's been quite some time since I've made any new acrylic patterns.  I'm so pleased to announce that I have 5 brand new patterns available in our store for pre-order... and at a special weekend bundle price too.

If you pre-order any of our new patterns between now and January 31, you will also receive a new Mystery Pattern!  Doesn't matter if you order the bundle  or just a single pattern... you'll get this cuties for free.

Until Next Time

SMASH* Books are HERE!!!

Do you SMASH*!  Do you know what SMASH* is?  Well to put it simply, it is a quick and simple approach to scrapbooking and journaling.  It's the latest craze right now, and it is addicting!  My girls and I started Smashing before Christmas, and what fun it is.  I can't seem to capture the time to sit down and scrapbook a full 12x12 layout, but Smashing... I can do that.  Just a few minutes and I've got a page.  A page about whatever I want it to be.  Whether it is pictures, a daily journal entry, likes, dislikes, rants, images of stuff I/we like, pictures of the kids... it is whatever I (and you) decide to make of it.

I find smashing to be so much more personal than plain old scrapbooking.  One day when I'm gone, my kids won't just be going back to read my old diaries from when I was in my 20's, but they will now have something more vivid, much more personal, and more my style to cherish forever.  They just might get to know me a little bit better than they thought they did.  Talk about a great family heirloom, right?

Here is one of my pages from my smash book:

Yes, I love my coffee!  Can't  you tell???

I am so thrilled to tell you that we are now carrying a full line of SMASH* products at The Beary Scrap.  You can find them all HERE at great prices, as always.

Need more information on what a Smash Book is.  Check out this video from K&Company.

Until Next Time...  Keep Smiling!

Patricia's Tear Bear Video Tutorial

I was so excited the other night when Patricia from Patty's Crafty Spot did a video tutorial on how she makes her Tear Bears using our Beary Sweet Designs Acrylic Patterns from The Beary Scrap.

Sending a HUGE Thank You to Patricia for this awesome tutorial that demonstrates just how easy our patterns are to work with.

I'm sure you will all enjoy this tutorial.
