Changes in store. . .
Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend! We are in Greenville right now visiting Jared's parents awaiting a surprise birthday party for Uncle Jim tomorrow. It was such a beautiful day today - we went up to Bay Mountain park with the kids and had a fabulous time (and took some fun pictures of course)!
I wanted to finally let you know about some of the changes coming to the site. You will not visually notice alot right off the bat as most of the changes have to do with the navigation and checkout. Here are a few highlights that may be of interest:
My Account - You will notice this option at the bottom of the home page (and any page you click on). You will be able to log in to your account and see what memberships you have existing, your billing history, make changes to your billing information or shipping information, see when your membership ends, etc. I believe this will help with the accidental duplicate memberships we experience each month (some of you like the kits so you much, you buy a membership each month! ha!) There will also be an option here for you to sign up for a membership indefinitely!! All you have to do is check the box and you will have a membership billed each month until you come in and uncheck the box (at which point you will just finish out that 3 month cycle). I'm really excited about this section! We will be sending out e-mails to all current members in the next few days (I'm not sure if it will actually be by the 1st unfortunately) with your user name (your e-mail address) and an assigned password. The e-mail will include a link that will take you to your account, at which point you will be able to change this password immediately to whatever you like.
Project Kit Subscription and Add-On - By popular demand, we are going to offer the Project Kit on Subscription as well. This kit will vary in price between $16 and $20 each month. There will not be a price break however for this option. It just gives you the option to know this will be billed and sent automatically each month without you having to go to the site and do anything. If you would like to add the Project Kit on a monthly basis (not on subscription) to be shipped with your Papercrafting Kit subscription, you will still have to purchase it through the site and check out. If you do it by the 7th of the month, you will be able to enjoy the reduced shipping. It is a little different from before in that the cart will charge for full shipping with your Project kit at checkout, but it will reduce the shipping when your Papercrafting Kit is billed.
Duplicate Memberships - I talked about this a little above, but if you try to purchase a membership and you already have one, the cart will know this and will ask if you are sure you want to purchase another! This will really help out on some of the confusion here.
Anyhow, these are just some of the highlights I wanted to share as we get closer to the 1st. I will keep you posted on other things you may need to know as we get through the first few days. I know there will be glitches as it is a new process, but the in the end, I know we will be left with a site like none other of it's kind! I'm excited to get the changes underway!
Have a good night!
Pin It!

Jenni-

I picked up the school memories magazine and saw a bunch of your fabulous work- I was totally inspired! Thanks for keeping scrapping at the forefront (in publications and in your gallery) as all of your other endevors take shape and take flight.

Here's hoping for a June sneak peek! You'd think I could wait two days, but...
I love the flowers and the pages I made with the May kits! It's the first kit/club I've done that got used right away.
