How about some more FAQs!
What if everything else sells out?
It will all be restocked as soon as possible. There will not be a preorder for the individual dies or Color Stories. I will send a newsletter when everything is available again. If you want to be notified of a restock, please sign up for our newsletter. You can do that on our homepage in the bottom right corner.
Do you take backorders or have a waiting list?
No, but you can sign up for our newsletter list to receive restock notifications.
Are there videos for all of the new products?
No. With very rare exception I only produce instructional videos for the large kits. It's one of the ways we differentiate between the stand-alone dies and the value in a kit. Many of the stand-alone dies do include an Inspiration Guide with design ideas and/or diagrams though.
A die I ordered says it comes with a video, but I didn't get my access email.
In order for the access emails to deliver properly you have to be signed up for the newsletter. If you aren't subscribed or if it still didn't come through, please email customer service for assistance. Please note: there is a delay on responses right now, but I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
When are giveaway winners announced?
Tomorrow morning at 9am ET there will be a blog post announcing winners and sharing a bit more inspiration. Winners must contact customer service to claim their prize (within 30 days).
Will the retired kits be restocked?
We do not have any plans to restock the retired items at this time. The current kits will be restocked as soon as we have all of the elements back in stock. The current kits are All Bundled Up (retires at the end of September 2023) and Keepsake Ornaments II (retires at the end of June 2024).
I forgot something I wanted to order. Can you add it?
If you forgot something from your order you're going to have to order it separately. I'm afraid I cannot add something for you after checkout. For your safety and mine, I do not have access to your payment information. I do my best to combine orders and refund shipping, but if enough time has lapsed between orders I may not catch the subsequent order(s).
How long will it take my order to ship?
I do everything I can to get orders out the door as quickly as possible, but I am only one lady so please be patient. I'm anticipating having everything shipped out by mid-week. If you have additional questions, please feel free to reach out to email@example.com. I am doing my best to respond in a timely manner, but there is a delay right now. Thank you for understanding!
