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 ScraptasticalKreations.com 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 kimm@thebearyscrap.com.

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 Kreations.com

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.

Cheers,
