We now have pageframe clear designs at the store. These are innovative acrylic products that are albums and embellishements.
Also, there is new love, elsie and more christmas and winter papers and embellishemts.
It seems as though the spirit of giving is exponential during the Christmas/Holiday Season. And while we sit safely in our homes, warming by the fire with friends and family; many are fighting a tireless battle on terrorism. Fighting and educating, to continue to protect our freedom and those that are only beginning to know what it feels like to go to school for the very first time, vote in a ‘free’ election and so many more freedoms we take for granted here, on our homeland. While they are fighting overseas over the season, and loved ones seem so much further away, maybe we can provide them with a small comfort of home and love.
Scrap & Bean Inc. is therefore, starting its drive for Christmas Cards to send overseas to the troops.
From November 1st to December 1st we are collecting handmade Christmas and Holiday Cards for the troops overseas. In order for the cards to be received in time, we will not be able to accept any after December 1st.
Please feel free to leave a message of encouragement to the troops in the cards and please do not seal the card in an envelope, but attach an envelope with the card when dropping off at the store.
For every three handmade cards that are brought in at one time, a ballot will be given to be entered into a draw. The draw will be made at close on December 1st – the day ofour Christmas Open House.
Join Scrap & Bean in showing the troops that we truly do support them in ‘our’ battle for freedom.

have an excellent weekend...i did hear snow in the forecast.....
I thought i would post a couple of ideas...both are baby related, however the cigar box/shadow box can be created for absolutely any memorabilia. It may be a trip you took, a wedding, a competition, anything for the matter. As you can see from the photo, mine holds my own baby shoes and my baptismal bonnet that i pulled out from my trunk. Even further, this shadow box is a great idea for a Christmas gift (if anyone is starting to think of that yet)?
The shadow box was made using the "Cosmo Cricket" cigar box and their paper line.
The layout is a layout of my nephew's baptism. I haven't posted too many layouts on here yet, so thought i would start with this one.
We received some more new product at the store this past week.
Heidi Swapp is now metallic - well sort of, her new product is at least. Alphabet chipboard and offce lables are all metallic in pink, silver, gold and copper. She has new variety embellishments, photo corners and transparent flowers too.
Doodlebug's new product is out too. Boy, Girl, Christmas and 'boogie oogie' are the themes; all in paper and stickers. They have new alphabet stickers and glitter chipboard, as well as stamps. There is also 'sugar' for you to glitter your own embellishments and jewels galore.
