Changes to the Scrapbook Daisies Kits

Martha just posted this about changes to the Scrapbook Daisies kit club:

Hello Everyone,

Most December kits are shipping tomorrow! There are a couple of items from the Merry January kit that I will receive today. If you ordered an add on and did not pay for it yet, you will be receiving an invoice shortly. The Merry January kit is sold out now! If you selected that kit but did not pay for it, you need to select another kit or skip this month.

I continue to have many challenges with the manufacturers about product, either they are sold out completely or items are on back order, I have never had issues like this before until the last 4 or 5 months. So I decided to make some changes to the kit club to help this situation and I am also moving the schedule to help the members that can not make their kit payments until the 1st of the month. As you know I have a full time job and also now the brick and mortar store so I try do do my shipments all at once when everyone has paid. So here are the changes:

I am bringing down the choices from 3 to 2 full kits per month

I will have 1 or 2 mini kits per month that will range between $15 - $20

The schedule will change as follows:

20th of the month - Sneak peeks
25th of the month - Full Reveals
25th - 28th - Member's kit selection
29th - Invoices are sent
29th - 3rd - Members must pay their invoices
2nd week of the month (Monday or Tuesday) kits will ship out

Hopefully this will assist me in getting the kits ready for you more timely and will assist you in getting payment to me promply.

I am really excited about the changes that are coming, with today's economy the people that can not afford a full kit might be able to get a mini kit! The mini kits will have the same great quality of product just in smaller quantities.

There will be changes in the Design Team which I will share shortly...

I know I am really excited about the smaller kits!  More people will be able to fit this price into their budget.  Then they can see for themselves how wonderful Martha's kits truly are!

My December Kit Layouts from Scrapbook Daisies!

If you are looking for the Paper Secrets Holiday Blog Hop, scroll down one post!

If you are here to see the next, gorgeous Scrapbook Daisies kit, keep reading!
What a fun kit! I love the My Mind's Eye I Believe papers and the embellies in this kit. It all comes together so beautifully! Its really traditional in color without being overly Christmas-y.  
Here is additional info on the kits if you would like to buy one:  Scrapbook Daisies Monthly Kits

Here is what I have made so far:

Wes playing in the snow outside the hotel in Utah over Thanksgiving. (with Creative Scrappers sketch #131)

The three older kids outside in the snow in UT. Used a Sketch Inspiration sketch for this layout.

Wade in front of the Christmas tree. Used a PageMaps sketch for this one.

Kylie with the snow. This is made with a Jana Eubanks MME sketch.

I still have another one in progress, but I wanted to get posted what I had made already. I can't wait to see what everyone creates!
I'd love some comments too if you have any.

Paper Secrets Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to your 5th stop on the Paper Secrets Holiday Blog Hop.

I made this to share with you today.  Its a layout combining the old with the new.  This is MME  Lost and Found Collection Portabello Road (which is brand new)  mixed with Kaiser Kraft's old winter line.  I'm not even sure of its name, but it is at least 3-4 years old.  There is also a Maya Road shear and a Basic Grey little birdie too.  I find it is really hard for me to combine lines, but I love it when I do!

These are my 3 oldest kids when we were in Utah for Thanksgiving.  These California kids never see snow so they were really excited to finally get to touch snow!  It really made us all excited for Christmas and wintertime.  All of us, except the 3 year old.  This is what he was doing while the big kids played:

He couldn't quite figure out how to play and keep the mittens on.  (And he didn't want me to take his picture!)

Don't forget to leave a comment on all 25 blog posts and then 1 final post in the forum for your chance to win 1 of the 3 gifts Paper Secrets is giving away. 

Your next stop will be Julia Sava's  blog.

In case you get lost, you can find a complete list of participating blogs here...
