Announcing Club G45
Earlier this month in our newsletter we announced our first ever kit club for 2018, Club G45! This took off faster and with more enthusiasm than we had ever dreamed of. All of Volume 1 kits sold out in less than three hours. As thrilled as we were with the popularity, we wish we could have been more prepared to meet the needs of our G45ers. We are adding as many additional kits as possible for Volume 2, and will continue to increase availability with future volumes in hopes that we can meet the demand.
Fortunately, we are still able to offer the project sheet and YouTube video tutorials to everyone. You can swap out the sold-out Fairie Dust 8×8's for the 12×12 collection pack and still create a stunning project, or try using another one of our paper collections. Below you will find all the info for our new program including a FAQsection below.

Club G45 FAQ:
Q: Sold out already?
A: Yes, we are as surprised as you! We prepared 500+ kits for our first round not knowing what to expect. We pre-sold some kits to our retail partners and sold the rest out in less than three hours. Please contact your LSS if you are lucky enough to have one to check if they have kits.

A: We will start taking Vol 2 orders on Thursday, February 8th at 11 am PST. We have increased our kits for Vol 2 to the maximum amount that our inventory will allow (800, and will increase to even more for Vol 3 and all future kits.) Please mark your calendars and purchase as soon as they are available.
Q: Can I still get the project sheet and video tutorials?
A: Yes, you can find everything here in our newsletter.
Q: Free Shipping?
A: Yes, we are offering free shipping on Club G45 kits that ship to the USA lower 48. The coupon code is case sensitive (for future reference it is: rclubg45 ) Any orders that apply that came through with shipping charges will be manually taken off when your order is processed.
Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: Yes, however international shipping rates can be very expensive and we don't have control over the prices. We hope that more of our international retail partners will take advantage of this program in the future to better service all of our beloved G45ers around the world. We can also try to help find the best shipping prices for you or a G45 retailer in your area. Just email email@example.com or check our Store Locator.
Q: If I signed up for auto-ship will I get the next month's kit?
A: Yes, Auto-ship subscribers monthly kits will be processed the second Thursday of each month, the same day the project sheet and YouTube video tutorials are shared in the newsletter. We will not be sending out a preview prior.
We hope all this info helps, and thank you all! We are so thrilled with the success of this program and look forward to continue to improve and reach more G45ers with each month. Thank you for the support and feedback. better
Dream Scrapbook Layout
by Katelyn Grosart
“Hey G45 Fans! Happy New Year! One of my New Year’s resolutions for this year is to push myself to create more scrapbook layouts. So I figured, why not start the year by creating one featuring the new and beautiful Fairie Dust collection. This layout was created for one of our family photos taken on our Alaskan cruise in 2015. You can easily change the theme of it and use any photos. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and enjoy the photos and tutorial of my Dream Scrapbook Layout.”
Tip: Add a bit of stenciling in behind your fussy cut images. Although you may not see a lot of the stenciled image, having a bit peek out amongst your fussy cut images adds some more dimension.
Tip: Mix elements from the Ephemera cards as well as the Tags & Pockets into your fussy cut images.
Tip: Add some metal elements for some extra interest in amongst the flowers.
Tip: From the Decorative Stickers, adhere a photo corner into the lighter embellished corner.
