As long as you reply to the e-mail we sent last night to update your billing information, you are all set to go for March and April!! We had to cancel the subscription in Paypal so that you were not double billed. We had to move everything over to our new cart so that you are billed directly by us for now on (not Paypal).
I’m so sorry to cause alarm.

I loved how "Bowlin" fit in the window, so that is what I did. But, my suggestion for everyone else is to do "Family" there, with "values" underneath. You could personalize they door in some way (with your monogram, etc.). The Project Kit Instructions and tips will be password protected this month (and for the future). You will get the password with your kit contents. This kit cost is $18.
Off to make dinner and take care of my little one. Jared got a virus last Thursday (he was on 3 planes in 4 days which isn't good to do in Feb.) and Christian drank after him on Friday. He came down with it last night. Already seems to be feeling better though - its amazing how little ones do that!

Okay, so it seems that many of you that signed up as members (or are considering it for March) have a lot of questions. First of all, for current members, we will be sending you an e-mail (should be Monday) that will ask you to update your billing information. Other than doing that, you are all set for March and April! We did not have a problem with the database recording the memberships, so if you purchased it, you are signed up and will get the e-mail soon! If you thought that you signed up, but don't get an e-mail by Monday night, send a note through the website and we will check on it. I am adding a "Member Information" page to the website and this is the information it will have on it:
If you are thinking about becoming a member, please read through all of the information below. Hopefully it will answer any questions you may have!
Once you sign up for membership, you will be billed at checkout for your first month. If the current month’s kit is no longer available, you will be billed and then shipped for the next month’s kit once it becomes available. After your first month, your credit card will automatically be billed on the 5th of the following two months. Once your card is billed on the last month of membership, you will automatically receive an e-mail asking if you would like to continue your membership (it will not continue automatically). Just respond to that e-mail and you will be set up for another 3 months. As long as you reply to the automated e-mails, you can be a subscriber for as long as you would like to!
During each 3 month period you are required to purchase each kit at the discounted price. We do not allow you to skip a month, skip and extend your membership by a month, or return a kit. Our specific Terms of Membership are listed below:
*Terms of Membership – Memberships for the first month of sign-up are billed immediately at checkout. After that, for the extent of your membership, you will be billed automatically on the 5th of each month. Kits are then shipped to you by Priority Mail on the 10th (or nearest business day). By signing up for membership, you are agreeing to purchase three consecutive Papercrafting Kits at the discounted price. Early termination of your membership will result in a $25 cancellation fee.
Because our Project Kits will vary drastically in price and style each month, they are not available on a membership basis currently. You can, however, add the Project kit to your Papercrafting Subscription each month (in order to save on shipping costs) by going to the site and purchasing the Project Kit before the 5th of the month. (See the Project Kit page for more details).
Keep in mind that all of this information is effective March 1st (as we are not currently set up for you to go ahead and purchase the next kit as it states above. You will be able to do this, however, beginning when the March kit sells out).
I have been testing our new cart this morning and it is looking good so far! I am off now to take the photos of the March Papercrafting Kit. I will tease it here this weekend! Aren't you glad Feb. is a short month!

Boy, it should would have been nice to debut without any glitches, but unfortunately, there were a few. Here is some information that should be helpful:
1. If you are signing up as a member, paypal does not let you add a project kit to your shopping cart. In actuality, becoming a subscriber has it's own checkout. However, we don't want you to pay for shipping twice, so what you need to do is pay for your papercrafting kit subscription, and once you are returned to the home page, you can add a project kit to your shopping cart. Check the box that says Combine Shipping, and it will ask for your email address. This will help us verify that you have already purchased a papercrafting kit subscription. You will then proceed to checkout, and you will be charged $12.50 for the project kit, plus $5.50 for shipping. It boils down to an additional shipping cost of $1.50 for the project kit, and $7 total shipping cost for your entire order.
2. Any of our friends who have ordered prior to this email will be receiving a note to let you know how we will be correcting your shipping cost.
3. For next month we are already working on a specialized shopping cart that is built into our site to make the check out process smoother.
Thanks to everyone for your interest and your patience - wow, this has truly been an adventure!
So now on to the fun stuff. . . we are finishing up today at CHA and I'm so excited about what we are going to be bringing to the kits in the near future!! I will try to share some images and some fun ideas we have come up with in the next few days as we get settled. I have met and re-connected with so many people in the past two days - it has really been a blast!
Have a great day- we are headed back out to the show floor!!
