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!**
