Tear Bear Spotlight Artist of the Month...

It's been a long time coming!  I've had this idea to spotlight a tear bear artist or artists each month on our blog.  I'm pleased to announce that it is finally happening.  I would LOVE to do this weekly, but that will all depend on the amount you all share with me.  Whether it is on of Facebook fan page, or you email me your creations using my patterns.  The more I receive, the more I will have to share with you!

This month I received these adorable creations from Roxy Clury.  She shares most of her work on her Facebook Page HERE.  Be sure to follow her for some paper crafting inspiration!

Believe it or not, these were her first ever tear bear creations using my patterns.  It just goes to show how easy it is to create such cuteness!

If you are interested in being a featured artist, please submit your creations on our Facebook Fan Page, or you can email me at  When your creation is featured on this blog, you will receive a $5.00 GC for my shop just for being featured!  Wouldn't this be more fun weekly?

Congrats to you Roxy.  Please contact me at to claim your 5.00 GC.

Keep those creations coming!!!

Until Next Time,

New Tear Bear Pattern & New Flair

Summer has come and gone all to quickly.  The kids are back in school, all of them full time.  I've decided to take the time that the kids are in school to do something I haven't done in YEARS!.  Take care of ME.  That has included lots of doctor's appointments (check ups and specialists), which does not seem to be slowing down any time soon.  I had imagined having all this time on my hands with the kids in school... that was wishful thinking.  So, in my spare time, I've been trying to get some new designs in the shop.  I'm happy to announce I have a new tear bear pattern and some new flair badges.
Begins shipping Friday, October 11, 2013.  Check him out HERE.

Two new packages (6 buttons/package) of Halloween Flair HERE.

I hope to have some additional items in the shop in the coming weeks.  Believe it or not, I am actually thinking Christmas!

Until next time,

Do you Project Life?

I recently took the plunge into Project Life.  The concept seems perfect giving my hectic life (or anyone's for that matter).  It's supposed to be quick, easy, and you can do it however you want.  Weekly, Monthly, special occasions, etc.  There are no rules.  You make it what you want it to be.

For me, I decided to take the "weekly approach" for 2013.  I am WAY behind, with only 8 weeks actually completed.  That's not too bad since week 27 just ended.

Here is my week 27.  I used Elle's Studio June Kit for most of the layout.  This was one of the first monthly kits I've ever bought.  I really like their designs and already ordered their July Kit.  The colors coordinated very well.  Although, there didn't seem to be enough in the kit to complete a 2 page layout.  I ended up incorporating a few cards from Becky Higgins Blush Core Kit, and a few of my own designed cards you will see below.

Other products used:  October Afternoon Mini Market stickers, Sn@p letter stickers, SC wood veneers, Amy Tangerine Goodness Alpha Thickers, Pink Paislee tiny tabs, Heidi Swapp letters, Miss Kimm Designs Flair Badges and a new Miss Kimm Designs Stamp set that will be available in my store soon (later this week).

July 1 & July 7 is from new stamp set that will be available this week

New Miss Kimm Flair Badges now available in the store HERE

If you would like to see more detail photos of my Project Life Week 27, please visit my personal blog at .

This is the set that I used for my 4th of July insert pages.  You can download this free set of printable journal cards from my personal blog HERE.

Check out our newly added flair badges!  We will be adding more designs to the store.  If you have suggestions, please feel free to comment below or contact me.

And another peek at my new Date Documented stamp set coming this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

New addition to our family...

This is a duplicate post from my personal blog.  If you would like to follow me, my family, crafty stuff and other neat things, please check out my personal blog here:

We've had a lot going on at home... so much that I will need to make a few blog posts just to catch up, otherwise I will bore you all to death with so much detail in one post.

On February 23, my world was literally turned upside down!  We got a puppy!!!  We had already decided a few months ago that it was time to bring another 4 legged friend into the house, but the timing was much sooner than I had planned.  It all started on Friday afternoon when my husband walked into a pet store while he was waiting to pick up a part for a job site.  This sweet little girl had been out playing in the pen.  She captured my husband's heart!!

Later that night, he told me all about his encounter with this furbaby.  Much to my surprise, I said I would contact the pet store in the morning and see if she is still there.  OMG, I did say that didn't I.  LOL.  When Saturday morning came around, the kind gentleman told me that she was there and he put her on hold for me.

Lindsay and I packed up in the car to go meet the little lady that stole my husband's heart.  Within meeting her, she captured our hearts too... and the rest is history!  Welcome home Pepper the Boxer! 

Homecoming! 2/23/13
Welcome home, Pepper.  12 weeks old
So my world was turned upside down!  Raising a puppy is a lot of work, but is also a lot of fun.  The first few weeks were tiresome!  She is crate trained, so that was helpful.  No howling at night when we put her to bed, and only a few accidents in the house.  Keeping up with her is like keeping up with a 2 year old child!!  Let me tell you... this little girl thinks she is human!

Look at the size of those paws!!!
Pepper, meet Kitty.  Yeah, this is going to take some time!!
As the weeks have gone by, she has given our lives an entire new meaning.  Talk about team work within the family!  She has truly brought us closer together.  Everyone pitches in and helps out with taking care of her.  She is MY responsibility all week while everyone is either at work or school.  Yes, she drives me absolutely insane some days.  She really doesn't like it when Mommy works.  Walks, playtime, and snuggle time is what she wants from me all day!  But seriously, how could you resist that face?

First trick Pepper learned in 2 days - "Paw"
She is unbelievably smart and picks up on anything we teach her within days!  Heal and come... not doing so well with, but everything else... brilliant!!!
Still not going so well!  2 weeks now.
Those eyes kill me!!

We think she looks like a Beanie Boo!

March 25, 2012.   She's getting bigger!
Practicing "Lay & Stay"
Pepper's favorite spot in the yard
Guard Puppy! April 10, 2013
So proud of herself!  Took her a week to dig up this rock!
They are still squabbling!  Pepper makes a game of it.
That's our Pepper the Boxer.  She's here.  She's family... and I wouldn't have it any other way!  She's mighty popular on Instagram too!!  I may have to give her her own FB fan page and Instagram account!

Until next time...

A new direction. New beginnings. Biggest Sale EVER!!!..

It's a little long, but worth the read.  The Beary Scrap is changing.

Ever have one of those moments when you know there is something big missing from your life?  There is something out there that that you long to do, experience, or see.  Your mind will not quiet down.  You are in constant argumentative dialog with yourself but yet, you still can't figure it out. 
Then, one night while trying so desperately to fall asleep, you have that ah-ha moment!  In that moment, you are now wide awake staring at the clock that now says 4am wondering how in the world am I going to get to sleep and if I do, how will I get back up to take the kids to school.  You know what to do, you know what you are missing.  You are afraid if you don't go write it down or tell one of your friends half way around the world, you might forget.

I had that moment not too long ago.  What I realized:  There comes a time in a girl's journey when you need to spread your wings an fly. Let go of your fears.  Do what you have been longing to do.  Believe in yourself.  Let go and be you!

Many of you know that I have started creating my own stamp and washi tape line, along side of my acrylic pattern designs and my svg files that are available at under Beary Sweet Designs.  My epiphany that night... I miss creating.  I miss placing my mark in the world.  I don't get a lot of time to do it with kids, daily life, and business.  When I do have the time, I'm full steam ahead with it.  I love it, I do well with it, and the response from you, my customers, has always been beautiful.  This is what I've been missing, what I've been longing to continue doing, and fearing the next step...

It's time for me to move on past the trays of pretty papers and embellishments that we all love.  It's time for me to let go and embark on a new journey my inner spirit tells me I need to do.  It's time for me follow my dreams in this creative and crafty world.

I am liquidating every last stitch of all the pretty paper lines and coordinating embellishments from my store starting tonight. 

Every Paper Line is marked down 30% to 50%... clearance items are 50% or lower.  I will not be replacing any lines or bringing in any of the new lines that are coming out.

What does the future hold and where am I going?  Some questions you may have

Are you closing
the website?

No.  The website will still be up and running for as long as I am in business.  The only thing that is changing is my product line.

Will you still carry Mulberry Paper?

Yes!  I WILL STILL carry my mulberry paper, that will not change.  I know how much my customers rely on my product.  It is what the business was founded on and I will always have it.  No, the website is not closing.

What about Tear Bear/Critter Patterns?

They are here to stay!  I have all intentions of getting my new designs cut, packaged and available for ordering as soon as I can.  Something many of you don't know is that my acrylic patterns are manufactured out of my home.  Designed, cut, printing and packaging all takes place here.  It's a timely process.  Our Creative tools are also handmade by me, and sometimes my husband, which is also a timely process.

Will you be getting in new Paper Lines?

As of right now, no.  In the near future, I plan on putting together scrapbook/card/daybook/smash kits that will be available to purchase on my website.  Kits will include custom stamps, die cuts, popular papers, embellishments and more at a reasonable price.  I hope to get back out in the creative world face to face with some classes too. :)

What can you expect?

1)  The same personal customer service from me.  I do my best to respond to every email in a timely fashion.  If you haven't heard back from me, please try again.  Filters on my email may have blocked your email from me recieving it.  When in doubt, send me a message through facebook from my fan page, or email me direct at

2) More Designed by Kimm stamps on a monthly basis.  Design suggestions are welcome

3) More Tear Bear Acrylic Patterns

4)  Specialized Paper Crafting kits in the future

5)  More of  my svg cutting files coming to Scraptastical

6)  More of my creative side and seeing me use my product in action.... and possibly a guest designer monthly or a design team.

As you can see... I have big plans.  The future is so bright, I've got to wear shades!  LOL.

I am focused and ready for the next chapter in this crafty world.  I hope that you will continue to support and follow me in my future journey.

Thank you for your business and continues support.  Here is to the future.

So.... rather than move all these goodies around, I've decided to have a

HUGE Customer Appreciation Sale!

I have marked down ALL of our designer paper lines 30% to 50% off!  When this SALE ends is undetermined!   Don't wait to catch these great savings.  It could end tomorrow, it could end next week.  Your best bet is to shop early for the best selection!

No coupon codes are needed.  Prices are marked down on the website.
