We were having so much fun with family that we stayed an extra day so, the clearance sale (as you may have already noticed) is not starting until Monday, Jan. 5th and will last until Thursday, Jan. 8th.
All items will be marked down in our Etsy shop in order to move them out of our house. Ordered items will be shipped on Thursday, Jan.8th and Friday, Jan. 9th.
And a quick little tutorial if you have a little extra moment to make an embellishment over the holiday season:
RVKC December Tutorial - Mini Paper Chains!
Running Red Velvet Kit Club has been a treat. I've been honored to feature a variety of artistic Guest Designers and host a talented Design Team that never failed to bring out the best in each month's kit. I've enjoyed the loyalty of scrappers that have been with us from the start and appreciated every new subscriber along the way. If ever you've been a part of RVKC, I thank you.
However, (big sigh) the December kit marked the last scrapbook kit from our little club. After much thought and a few candid conversations with close friends, Brett and I have decided to close up shop and redirect our energies into a new business opportunity. We will no longer be managing all aspects of a small business but contributing to part of a larger one. I'm collaborating with Elsie Flannigan on craft kits that will be sold from her new online store, Red Velvet Art, which opens in February 2009. We're excited about the chance to work together and hope you'll be just as thrilled with the craft kits we'll be putting out each month. They will be available from her online store starting in February.
We're wrapping things up in January with a clearance sale to move out the last of the product on our shelves. Previous kits, partial kits, and individual items will be on sale from January 2nd through January 9th, after which the remaining items will be donated. With the economy affecting us all in different ways, its a great opportunity to get product at a greatly reduced price.
We're thankful for all the ways you've supported, encouraged and sometimes had to be patient with this little business over the months. Most of all I want Michelle, Marie, Theresa and Jen to know how talented I think they are and how much they've made this kit club better. You girls made this job so much easier.
On that note, stay tuned for Michelle's latest pages and a fun tutorial. We'll post a reminder about the clearance sale later this week. Most of all, have a wonderful holiday full of new memories to document.
Blessing to all,
Rachel and Brett
My goodness! Jen has made such beautiful things with this kit. There is no end to what these girls can do. Check out her wonderful creations.
Man I wish I would've learned how to knit better. I think I'll go drag out my book and my needles and get to work. That scarf is just fabulous!
Jen will have a challenge up tmw where you can win a goodie bag full of RVK awesomeness! We hope you will play along. Also keep checking in for our lovely Guest Kerry Lynn's wicked creations not to mention Michelle has a tutorial coming soon.
Theresa has been hard at work putting some killer stuff together with the latest kit. If these creations don't get you started on some handmade gift ideas then I don't know what will!
WOW! All that with the one kit! AMAZING! I personally love it all.
Please email us so we can get your kit out to you! Thank you to everyone who played along. Join us on Sunday for Jen's creations and another fabulous challenge!
Awhile back, we invited the lovely Kerry Lynn Yeary to be a GD for one of our winter months. She not only agreed but proposed that we Guest Design for each other the same month. I've long admired her work and was excited about the invitation to showcase the December kit from her new kit club, Kenner Road. Kerry Lynn has an uncanny eye for vintage finds and puts together some of the best kits on the market. We almost got to meet each other last year, at the Alameda Flea Market of all places, but fate did not allow. It's a great excuse to head that direction next time we're in California!
We've sold out of the December Kit but we've got a few from November if you're still catching up on your Fall scrapping. Keep your toes warm! ~Rachel
