Come in for some Christmas 'cheer' in the midst of your Christmas Season.
Every once in a while I look to go through my books that sit on my shelf. Well, one such day, i recently did this. I took down "The Big Picture" by Stacy Julian and found an intriguing website she refers to.
for better life
This is such a handy website, handy as in at the click of a mouse, you will be inspired. Inspired by ordinary people, inspired by simplicity and inspired to change your world and how you live it. Take a look, be uplifted.
The 4th quarter magazine is now in the store. Full of great Christmas ideas, as well, various tips and techniques. This is a great read, but also great as a stocking stuffer...pick it up today, before they sell out...and they are sure to!

Ki Memories is at the store - laser cut patterned paper as well, stickers, chipboard and ribbon. The stickers are journal joggers - paragraphs for you to add words to create your own stories. They are great!
We have new product in the store - again. Stix 2 You has foil transfers, beads and glitter, adhesive products as well, 3d adhesive shapes. These are excellent to add dimension and intrigue to your projects. The foil transfer sheets can be transferred onto the 3d shapes and then there is the glue that allows you to create your own shapes and designs. Then transfer the glitter, foil or beads onto the tacky glue and it creates some excellent imagery!
Create this canvas using your choice of papers from the Bohemia line and your choice of cardstock. Learn distressing and painting techniques, learn to effectively use transparencies and valuable design elements. You will also receive a set of chipboard letters for your own title.

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.
