August 1st is almost here!

So I have been promising some exciting changes to the site and the kits this month! Here is a run-down:
- a new look to the site! Check it out at midnight.
- a contest to find our next guest designer -with the possibility to design for the wholesale end as well! (See details below)
- a giveaway (every kit order will receive 3 JBS Journaling Cards)!
- new "adopt-a-relative" program (see explanation in previous post)
- new extended gallery (gallery will now be keep archived for two years as opposed to one - you guys asked for this one)!
- new exclusive kit program for members (membership should have it's privileges, right?) Look for more details on this next week. This program will launch mid-month.
Now onto the previews for tonight's kits:

August 2008 Papercrafting Kit

See other previews in the previous post. The full details won't be revealed until the kits go for sale at midnight.

August 2008 Project Kit

Isn't this the sweetest thing ever? Somehow I managed to get my hands on enough of these old ice cream boxes to use them as a kit. The box measures 7.5" x 3", 2.5" deep. You will be making 6 long cards that fit perfectly inside each box. Perfect for your kitchen and a great conversation starter (or a great gift if you can bear to give it up)!!

August 2008 Add-On Kit

I specifically sought out books at the flea market last month that would coordinate with this kit! The detail on the pages is pretty cool (you will see more photos at the site tonight). I also picked up the beauty shop cards on a flea market trip several months ago. The street this shop was on must have been renamed as it doesn't appear to exist anymore! A very neat find.

All three kits go up tonight at 12:00 midnight central time!

Designer Contest Details - if you would like to enter the contest you will need to purchase the Papercrafting Kit this month. This is not a gimmick to sell more kits, but I need to see what each person can do with a "kit" in general and this equals the playing field to have everyone working with the same thing. If we sell out or there are other circumstances that keep you from being able to pick up a kit, we will have a back up plan. I will post about this and all of the other details next week. We will have a specific e-mail that projects/layouts will need to be sent to as well as size requirements. I will keep you posted! There will be product and monetary prizes as well. Stay tuned!!

Pin It!

I am SO excited about the box... you do such a wonderful job of putting together kits with a vintage element.

Sidenote: Has anyone seen my email about not receiving my July kit. I never got it and am anxious to! I was definitely charged. Thank you.

Looooove the new website, ever since you made that label, so girly. I think it's the perfect fit for the site. The new line Victoria is gorgeous as well, looking forward to the DT. Can't believe the add on kits are gone

The new site looks amazing! I am never quick enough for the add ons:-)

Arlene said...

The ice cream boxes are darling! How do your kits work - are they an in-shop class, or do you mail them to anyone?

Willea said...

Love the new site! I've been looking around in the blog and the shop for some time now, today I signed up for my first kit :) - it looks soooooo beautiful! Can't wait until it arrives.

About the DT-contest - do you accept international participants? Hope so :)

Beautiful! I order a kit for the first time and am so excited! I usually convince myself not to spend the money, but I decided to splurge this month. Can't wait for it to arrive. Great timing, as the kids will be back in school and I will have some time to create.
