finally my bloggers.......

i have two hours to post today ALL FOR YOU!! This post COULD be a little long - so i apologize if you're only able to "skim" this one!!

On the agenda for today's post: Chicks in the Attic info., new arrivals at the store, LOTM, Scrappin' Saturday, Disney Princess Class Kits, Crop*A*Ganza-ville (shirts, cancellations, emails, hotel), Facebook Fan pageS.

WOW - that's a LOT of information - maybe i'll split these up into multiple posts throughout the week!??!

Okay - so - first Chicks in the Attic - i'm going to be explaining a lot of the questions that we have received since we announced our new Nationwide Kit Club!! We are OVERWHELMED with the response that we have received!! We have already SURPASSED the number of kits we thought we would sell the first month!! SOOOOOO happy that the kits are so well received!! Christie is traveling to Valley Forge this weekend and is going to be spreading the word there, so hopefully we'll start to make our way out towards the East Coast!!!

Okay - so some of the questions that we've received regarding the Kit Club - hopefully this will clear up any confusion there may be!

Can I skip a month during my 6 month subscription?

Yes, it is possible to skip a month. We will send a preview of the next month's kit out via email, facebook, and the website on the 20th. If you choose not to receive the following month, you must send an email to chicksintheattic@gmail.com by the 25th of month. You will not be able to skip multiple months in a row.

Can I unsubscribe?

Yes, you are welcome to unsubscribe from the club at any time. However, there will be a $15 fee to cancel. This fee covers the cost of the free items that subscribers receive with their kit.

Why am I charged $1 at the time of purchase?

You are charged $1 to reserve your kit so that our website captures your credit card information. The $1 reservation fee is credited to your account when the charge for the first kit is processed.

When will the kits ship?

For the first month, kits will ship on Monday, August 10. After the first month, kits will ship on the first Monday of the month.

How much is shipping?

The cost of shipping your kit is $4.99 in the continental United States. Shipping to Canada is $20. You will NOT be charged additional charges for add ons!

What can I expect to receive in each month's kit?

Each month's kit will contain enough products to complete at least 6 layouts. We also include two sets of alphabets with each kit so you have plenty of letters for your titles!

Do I have to subscribe to the club?

We offer both a subscription to our kit club as well as a month by month option. You are not required to subscribe to receive a kit. However, kit quantities are limited, so subscribing is the easiest way to ensure that you will receive a kit each month. We will do our best to have enough kits for everyone interested in purchasing them!

What are the benefits of subscribing to the kit club?

Kit club subscribers will receive the kits at a discounted rate: they save $3 per month. In addition, subscribers will receive a free gift with each month's kit, special offers and discounts from both Chicks in the Attic and Two Chicks Designs, and a guarantee that there is a kit reserved for them. Subscribers don't have to worry about ordering the kit before it sells out!

Can I pick up my kit at Scrap Funattic if I live in the Wichita, Kansas area?

You are welcome to pick up your kit at Scrap Funattic! Just select the In Store pickup option when you are reserving your kit. You can also order and pay for your add ons online as well.

What if a product in my kit is damaged?

The kits are carefully packaged and shipped via USPS Priority mail. Please contact us if any of the items in your kit are damaged and we will work with you to correct the problem!

Can I order my Kit of the Month IN the store?

We can set you up online via the Two Chicks website in the store just as you would yourself online.
