Happy New Year to all of our subscribers and followers! Clique Kits wishes you and yours happiness, love, and prosperity in the coming year! Here on Hawaiian time there is a lot of (American) college football on today, lots of yummy snacks and sweets around left from the holiday indulgences, and maybe today if you are like me, you will have a moment to sneak off to your crafty space for a little alone time catching up with your memories and your latest kits! That is definitely my plan for this weekend… just as soon as I get this Christmas tree down.
Every new year is a beautiful thing. It’s a fresh start! And we would appreciate it if you would help us to give the Clique Kits warehouse a fresh start by helping us to unclutter the products we have enjoyed throughout 2015 which complemented our kits and store products all year long.
We want empty shelves, better to fill them with new product we will be ordering from all of the new releases at the annual CHA mega show in Anaheim. This year, we also have a different agenda for CHA- the Clique Kits leadership team is going on a retreat together to brainstorm our goals for the coming year, new directions to steer the kit club in keeping with changes we are seeing brewing in the industry, and most of all YOUR FEEDBACK. As always, our number one goal is to improve our community from within, by being part of it, and growing it from the heart, reaching out globally and embracing diversity and the needs of the MODERN memory documenter and paper crafter. There will be so many friends to see, and new friends to make. We LOVE to meet new small business owners, designers, and artists to network with.
We will naturally have to pause shipping from January 7-13th during our CHA retreat. We hope you will bear with us. Orders will be processed as soon as possible when “the warehouse” re-opens. Subscribers willing to have orders shipped with their February kit- please note that and this will help make everything even easier for Erica this month!
If you visit the Clique Kits store today, you will notice some reorganization has been completed. Most of the 2015 products have been moved to either Clearance or Seasonal Shops (each with deep discounts already marked down at least 50%) to clear them out. Products remaining under New, School Store, and Categories are eligible for the coupon discount throughout this weekend. Use code CK2016 for these products.
This is a great time while you are organizing, de-cluttering, and de-stashing your scrap room and going through your stash and leftover kits to pick up those coordinating items that will be ‘just the thing’ to use it up and finally kill it, use up scraps, or complete something you have set aside from last year for pennies!
Finally, we are so pleased to announce that pre-orders will begin this week for the annual Valentine’s Day Kit! It is called XOXO and features one of our favorite brands in the industry currently-Bella Blvd.
This kit is so packed with yummy extras from Crate Paper, exclusives from our newest Clique Kit graphic designer Inna, and fun surprises we can’t wait to show you! Look for the full reveal this coming week! XOXO is suitable for scrapbooking, project life, decorating your planner, making cards,making valentines, making party decorations, and any way you want to use it. There is plenty for all formats of paper crafting in this kit, yet just enough because we want to see you use it up! Add to it with unlimited use printables and cutting files. All ages will love the themes and motifs in this kit.
I hope you all have been enjoying the incredible inspiration from our design team on the blog. Every day brings so many fresh ideas for ways to use all of the products in the monthly kit and available in the store, plus the digitals- this design team is such a blessing. I am not just saying that either- we love the uniqueness and individual personalities and talents they each bring. THANK YOU to our Design Team for their hard work and dedication to sharing and inspiring and engaging our Clique day after day. We think the Clique Kits Varsity Design Team is the best in all the world ! Happy New Year!
