Hello and welcome to the Crafty Coffee Bear Blog!


I want to let you know that I now have a new blog
where you can find announcements and new freebies!

You can find it here:


Everything here is still available for you to download for free.
However, all of the HFD posts only have my a download for my 2 required pieces of the kit.
Michelle of CraftyScraps is ill at this time, so the HFD challenges are Not currently available
since she is unable to keep up with her forum. If that changes, I will update this to let you know.

Enjoy your visit and please visit my new blog where you will find all of the latest freebies.

Thanks for visiting!

A Freebie From SugarButt Designs Templates! *UPDATED*

Some of you had problems opening up the papers after unzipping the file. 
I've removed the link that was there and replaced it with a new one for you. 
It's a completely new zip file.
I re-zipped the original folder and re-upped the whole thing!
So sorry you had problems with it and please let me know if the new 
download is working correctly for you now. Thanks! ~Hugs~ Kathie

Hi everyone! I hope those of you that celebrate the 4th of July 
had a wonderful day and took lots of pics.......
because I've made you a kit using only SugarButt Designs
templates along with my own imagination and color palette!
It's perfect for scrapping your 4th celebration and it's Free!

JJ of SugarButt Designs has been so generous in sharing her
fabulous templates with us that I thought it would be a nice
way to thank her and bring you a fun kit using a sampling of
her Templates so you can see what can be done with them!
She has whole themes of bundled templates in several stores, 
so if you need some Very High Quality Templates, 
be sure to check her blog to find out which stores she has them in. 
recently purchased a Christmas bundle and am thrilled with it!

Here's the preview of the kit...just click on the image to
download it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your new kit!

**Thank You JJ** for so kindly sharing your talent 
and creations with us...I always look forward to 
seeing what you come up with next!**


  1. Thanks Kathie, love what you did with the templates. Love her work and do get all her emails.

  2. This is such a nice freebie but i could not get any of the papers to open up. Got the "Extraction Could Not be Completed - Destination File Cannot Be Created" error message. Also I noted that the paper files were really small such as 245K.

  3. I downloaded this freebie and the papers are not opening, I was wondering if I was doing something wrong? Can you please help me.

  4. Hi De and FussBudget...so sorry you are
    having trouble with the file. Usually
    it's just the zip file that doesn't download
    properly. There have been over 100 downloads
    for this and no one else is having problems with it.

    Please delete the copy you have and download
    it again. If you still can't open it so that
    it works for you, please send me an email
    and I'll send you the file via an email
    attachment. CraftyCoffeeBear@gmail.com

    Enjoy the rest of your day! :-)

  5. thank you so much for the freebie, but papers wouldn't download so I could open them up and copy Thanks so much anyway.


  6. thanks so much for the download but I couldn't copy and save any of the papers. Thank you though for the other files.


    1wornoutmom@gmail.com or 1wornoutmom@sbcglobal.net

  7. I too am having problems unzipping the download. I have tried it a couple times and it is still giving me error messages. I think this is a really cute addition to the rest of Sugar Butt's and wish it would work.

  8. I've re-upped this kit for you. If you have
    any more problems, please let me know.

    It seems that the problem started after the
    first 100 downloads from Mediafire. After that, the file wasn't downloading properly.

    Hopefully now you can enjoy this kit! :-)

  9. It worked!! Thank you for taking the time to redo it! Fun additions to July 4th pages!!

  10. Wonderful! Thanks so much for letting me know!

  11. Thank you for your freebie
    The elements are wonderful however your paper wouldn't unzip for me. Tina

  12. Hi Tina...did you download the file from
    the new link? If you did and are still having problems opening the papers...please send me an email and I'll mail them to you
    as an attachment.


    They are working fine from the new download, so I don't know why you still can't open them.

    I downloaded the file to get the same one everyone is getting and was able to open the papers in Photoshop, paint shop and Wondershare with no problems at all. I've never had this happen before, so I hope by emailing them to you that it will solve the problem for you.
