I am officially retiring StrawBeary Designs- and designing and selling only as Charm City Scraps.

I feel bittersweet about saying goodbye to StrawBeary. I don’t like it so much any more, but this was my gateway into the world of digi-scrapping.  So to celebrate what StrawBeary has meant to me, all of my products are 75% off for the rest of 2009!

Not only am I changing my name, but I am also doing some changing of stores. Unfortunately, the owner of Scrap It Sassy has decided to make some changes to her contract and policies that I don’t agree with, so I have decided to leave there. I gave my notice two weeks ago, and Thursday will be my last day there.

In it’s place, I have signed up with DigiScraps Drive-In! This awesome store has a fantabulous forum with great challenges, talented designers, and an incredible management!  Plus, my products are being quality checked to make sure you get the best possible designs!

Today is the last day to take advantage of the awesome 12 Days of Christmas sale going on at Butterfly Blush Designs! Be sure to snag the awesome freebie and take advantage of the even better sale prices. (Today’s discount is huge, so don’t miss out!)

While you are there, check out my new Fall CU templates (yah, I know I’m a little late with them) and my Pick of the Patch kit. It’s my first release as Charm City Scraps.

I’m working on the finishing touches for my Christmas kit now and hope to have it in stores soon.

Oh, and did I mention that I am now a PINK LADY?!?!?! My store at DigiScraps Drive-In will be opening sometime this month! Be sure to stop by and visit. The store has a fantastic forum too, with some great challenges! We had a speed scrap last night that was a blast. Here is the layout I made (using my Pick of the Patch kit!):

The frame isn’t from my kit, but I have no idea where I got it. The designer just labeled it 14. If anyone knows who made it, let me know so I can credit them, please. I’m thinking I’ll make this layout into a template for you, so come back by!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Isn’t it funny (ironic) how life just seems to happen? I posted that I would be back soon with some freebies for you, and never made it back. My son got sick again, and then my grandfather passed away…

Well, I am back today with enough great stuff to make up for it!

First of all,  I am…  CHANGING MY DESIGN NAME! When I first started designing, I thought StrawBeary Designs was cute. I already had WAHM business selling hair bows for little girls under the name StrawBeary Bows, so it seemed like StrawBeary Designs was the logical name for my scrap kits! Well, 9 months later, I’m not liking it so much. Therefore, I am changing my name to Charm City Scraps. Be on the lookout for my official announcement and the opening of my new website.

Next order of business is this fantastic deal we have going on at Butterfly Blush Designs,

Each of the designers donated a different freebie for each of the 12 days. Plus, each day there is a different storewide sale!

All right, I am assuming that most of you are here for the blog train! Here is my part. Snag it then head on over to the next destination:
