News

Hi Crazy Monday Fans!

Today I’m writing a post I was hoping to not having to write in a VERY long time. I have news. Disappointing and for me – heartbreaking – news.

The November Scrapbook Kit will be the LAST main scrapbooking kit from Crazy Monday Kits.

The Embellishment Kit will continue for now. More numbers might be added depending on interest. And the shop will still be open. New products will be added from time to time. But the MAIN KIT will finish with the November kit.

I have LOVED planning and making up the kits for the last 2 1/2 years. Absolutely LOVED it. And I think my subscribers have been happy with the kits. But the stress of the delays of deliveries, and not being able to give my customers the BEST service has taken a toll on me. And if I’m completely honest – I haven’t sold enough. Scrapbooking is a TOUGH business to be in!

I’d like to apologise to all my loyal subscribers, some of you have been with me since the very beginning! And to all the GDT’s in waiting – I’m sorry. I hope you get to share your talent elsewhere.

For any questions or comments, or to be put on the Embellishment wait list, please email me on crazymondaykits@gmail.com

Thank you!

Nowadays I keep an annual pocket-page scrapbook and do 12×12 pages of anything I feel like.  I’m looking forward to working with Annelie here at Crazy Monday and can’t wait to get to know you all!

Today I’m sharing a LO that I put a lot of love in 🙂 I used the cut file “Pie Hearts” from The Cut Shoppe, only I made one heart REALLY big 🙂 Then, as you can see I used a few different patterned papers from the July kit “Orange is the New Black” to fill it up, did some sewing and went on putting a few embellishments on (most of them from the kit). Love the July kit’s plethora of embellishments!
