Kits2Remember Online Store Closing

After much debate and indecision, I have decided to get out of the scrapbooking retail and wholesale business. With my move from Southern California to Florida, the downturn in the economy and the needs of my young family, I am just not able to devote the time necessary to manage and promote Kits2Remember the way it needs to be.

With that said, Kits2Remember is having one last sale this week – 50 percent off items in almost every product category – no promo code necessary! This sale applies to in-stock items only, and while supplies last. At this time, Kits2Remember products will not be represented at any of the upcoming Scrapbooking expos and shows. Please order now and use your frequent shopper points in conjunction with the sale through Sunday Jan. 10. All items will ship the week of Jan. 10 via USPS.

The Kits2Remember online store through Qbaroo will shut down this month; however, as an idea, resource and educational site, will remain live. Kit instructions will continue to be available online. You can also still contact me via email through the web site, as well.

Also, if anyone is interested, I am selling one of my cargo trailers, a 2007 5x8-foot enclosed white Wells Cargo trailer. It is located in Irvine, Calif., and will be sold with 16 panels of gridwall, complete with wire baskets, shelving and hooks, cash register, a Zutter DreamKuts, box of buckets, baskets and pails for small items, boxes of plastic grocery store bags, a pink 8 x 8 wire paper rack, a 12 x 12 white paper rack, Ranger paint dabber (4) and Stickles (1) racks and set of rolling drawers. $4,000 for everything. It will also be listed on Craigslist later this week.

If anyone is interested in buying the rights to sell the raw materials (acrylic, metal and chipboard) portion of the business, please feel free to contact me – serious inquiries, only, please. These products are unique to the industry and I would hate to see them become completely unavailable.

While I still plan to teach classes when I can, simply because I enjoy it, I very much want to focus on the creativity and fun scrapbooking and paper crafting brings to my life. I thank each and every one of you who has been so enthusiastic and supportive during my 2 ½-year adventure. I’ve had a lot of fun, made some wonderful friends and have learned so much!

I want to send out a huge thank you to my Expo Krews and the K2R Design Krew; to my parents who were always more than happy to lend a helping hand, and to my husband, Rodney, who has stood with me through the ups and downs this experience has given me.

It’s a small Scrap World – I’m sure I’ll see you around!

All the Best,

Jessica Guthrie
