Tonight is the Night!

By April 14, 2011General

The night we have all been waiting for is finally here!  Can't you just feel the anticipation in the air!  Now is your chance to be one of the FIRST to get to play with all of the amazing paper crafting goodness that we are offering up this month!!!  I wanted to let you know a few things about tonight so you can know what to expect!

The release party begins at 10pm EST on our forum.
Be sure to stop by our forum and enjoy the camaraderie and chit chat about all of our new products.  It's fast-moving and a super duper way to pass the time until you can begin filling your cart.

You can't have a party without a contest.
Tonight we will feature a contest, HERE ON THE BLOG.  There is a post that will go live @ 10:30pm EST entitled "OFFICIAL Release Party Contest" with a question for you to answer.  Share your answer with us and you will be eligible to win:

Our "I Want It All" package
this includes almost the entire April Release!

The contest will close at 11:30pm EST and the winner will be chosen via the Random Number Generator.  I will announce the lucky winner here before midnight!

Stamp Set Reveal @ 11pm EST

At 11pm EST I will reveal all of the stamp sets in their entirety here, on the blog.  This way you can have a little time to look at everything and make informed decisions about your purchases.

Release Ordering 101

I have added a new page of information that will tell you all about the details of ordering during the release, procedures & policies you should be aware of and more.  Whether your new here or a regular, I think you will all find this information helpful.  You can find this information HERE.

As a reminder, which is noted on the Release Ordering 101 page, if you have trouble accessing the front page of the store after midnight, you can try going in the "back door" by using this link:

April Quick Picks/Collections!

For those of you who want it all with just one click!  You can see the full list of quick picks as well as all of the other new merchandise that will be available tonight, HERE!

April in a Nutshell!

You can always see a linked review list for each release on my Previous Countdown page, HERE.  But I have also added the list below, so it's easy to navigate while you are making your shopping decisions tonight.

DAY 1: Grunge Me & My Hero, My Dad

DAY 2: Tag-its #3 & Library Ledger Year Additions

DAY 3: Background Basics: Chevron Stripes, Flower Fusion #3, Think Big Favorites #3

DAY 4: Train Tracks & Alpha-blocks

DAY 5: Boy Basics Collection & Ad Sense

And one last thing…

We have tried to anticipate demand for this release to the best of our abilities, but it was difficult to make calculations since there were so many $5 sets this month.  If there is anything that is a quick sell-out tonight, we wanted to let you know that we have our manufacturer standing by to get to work first thing tomorrow morning in case we are in need of anything.  We thank you in advance as we work through inventory predictions for these inexpensive sets and with a little luck, there will be enough of everything for everybody!

Thank you so much for visiting throughout this exciting countdown and we look forward to seeing all of you later tonight!

    The most influential male figure in my life was definitely my dad although my husband is a close second because he is so much like my dad. Both my parents were working parents but dad always got home early and we would cook dinner together and work on my homework. He is such a wise soul, who taught me how to enjoy life, respect others, and most of all accept and embrace others for who they are. Great skills and ideas that I appreciate to this day – and hope to impart to my own son and daughter! What a month – love it all!!

    Great release, Nichole! I, for one, am so grateful for all of the $5 sets. I know that for you it probably would have been easier to make the Boy Basics into one stamp set, but I REALLY appreciated it being several small sets. I bought the younger themed sets now since my boys are 2,3, & 5. A few years from now when they are older I will come back and get the older themed sets. LOVE it! And, with my budget, the $5 sets allow me to get some of the other things, like felt, that are on my list as well. THANK YOU!
