Now Taking Christmas 2010 Kit Pre-Orders! Reserve Yours Now!

Hi, everyone! It's official ~ you can now pre-order to reserve your copy of the 2010 "Christmas Traditions" Mini-album-Class-In-A-Box!

For those of you who don't know, I am working with my pals at Wild West Scrap Divas to offer you a virtual Christmas album class in a box. The kit will come with everything you need to complete an album of my design, along with a DVD where I will guide you step-by-step through the assembly of the album in a classroom like format.

This album tutorial will be exclusive to the DVD ~ no one will see this album who has not purchased the DVD. It will never be shown in entirety on YouTube or UStream. Putting the class on DVD allows me to offer a slower pace with fewer cuts and more detailed shots. The DVD classroom format also enables you to scrap at your own pace by pausing, rewinding, skipping ahead, etc. No more waiting for videos to load.

Like all my albums, this album will be chock full of beautiful techniques, unique and exciting pages, interactive elements and fun embellishments. The 2010 album will primarily feature the Graphic 45 "Christmas Past" collection, with inclusions from 7Gypsies, American Crafts, Clearsnap, Crafty Secrets, Jenni Bowlin, Prima, Ranger, Sizzix, Tattered Angels, Tim Holtz and More! There is over $150.00 MSRP worth of goodies in the box & that's not including the DVD! For a full supply list, click here: 2010 Christmas Kit Supply List.

You can see a video of one of the kits from last year here: 25 Days Until Christmas Kit by Tiffany.

This year we're moving away from the Advent Calendar format and chronicling our family Christmas traditions, memories and recipes in a luxurious vintage ~ even Victorian ~ twelve page 8"x8" Christmas album. I'm calling the class "Christmas Traditions" and the format allows for you to record your family's traditions through the years. You can record Christmases past, or save the album and add to it each year as you develop new traditions.

The pre-order period will last through November 1, 2010, or until all kits have sold ~ whichever comes first. I should tell you that last year the kits sold out completely during pre-orders. Kits will ship on or before December 1st unless there is a problem with a manufacturer. Pre-order prices are only good through November 1st. After that, kits may not be available or may only be available at elevated prices due to minimum order requirements.

There will be three pre-order options this year: Full Kit + DVD Deposit Only, Full Kit + DVD Paid in Full and DVD Only.

Pre-Order Prices: through November 1st
1. DVD only: $19.95 USD + shipping due on order.
Will ship in a USPS Priority flat rate envelope. DVDs will ship as soon as filming, editing and production is complete. Please choose your shipping method from the drop down box. This will take you to my PayPal account and DVDs will ship from Miami, FL.

Shipping Options

2. Full Kit, Deposit Only: $150.00 USD total, $75.00 USD due on pre-order and the remaining $75.00 USD + Shipping due when kits are complete & ready to ship. Shipping will be via the USPS Priority mail Medium FRB. If you are outside the US and want the full kit, you must choose this option as shipping may vary person to person as we try to get you the best shipping rate we can. We will need to invoice you again for exact shipping costs when the kits are ready to go. Please select your country from the options below. This will take you to the Wild West Scrap Divas PayPal account and kits will ship from Gilette, WY.

Deposits + Shipping

3. Full Kit, Paid in Full: $150.00 USD + shipping due on pre-order. The benefit of paying the total upfront is that the second the kits are ready to ship, these kits will be the first out the door. Only US resident can choose this option. This will take you to the Wild West Scrap Divas PayPal account and kits will ship from Gilette, WY.

US buyers ONLY
