Creative Memories Last Chance Orders

I hope you had a great holiday weekend.  We were busy with projects around the house and some family visits.  We did go to the Picnic in the Park here in town - the photo above shows a bike decorated for the kid's parade.  I have some catching up to do on projects and photos but there are a few time sensitive things I wanted to let you know about today.

Creative Memories plan for selling existing inventory and offering a final chance for customers to purchase albums, pages and page protectors was approved by the bankruptcy judge.  Virtually all items on the website are listed as "while supplies last" and many have sold out.  If there are any items you had been thinking about ordering, you should check to see if they are still available and get them while you can.

The plan allows CM to take orders for certain core products that are manufactured in house and then produce as many as needed to fulfill these orders.  The list is limited to 12 x 12 coversets, pages and protectors and 8 x 8 pages and protectors.   Today is the first day you can place a Last Chance Order  - you can find the page on my CM website HERE.  These items will be made to demand and shipping times could be greatly extended from the normal schedules (possibly weeks or months).

Some coversets are not part of the Last Chance Orders.  I noticed that colors and styles that I hadn't seen before were added to the websites.  You can find them HERE in the While Supplies Last group.  Creative Memories suggests that you place two separate orders if you want products from both the Last Chance Order and the While Supplies Last categories.  The While Supplies Last items are on hand in the warehouse and will ship much more quickly.

I have made sure that I have pages and protectors for the coversets on my shelf.  I probably won't order any additional albums.  If you love these albums and are willing to wait for what could be a very long time to receive your order, be sure to place your order using a credit card.  This might provide some protection if the situation changes and the albums are not produced (but it isn't a guarantee that you will get the albums or a refund).

I don't have any new information about the digital programs and printing yet.  I believe talks are ongoing for possibly transferring support of Memory Manager and StoryBook programs to another company.  If you have product credits, rewards club credits or host credits, you should use them right away.  No credits will be honored after August 21, 2013.

The Silhouette Online Store is having another sale - 25% off on Travel and Seasons shapes.  This sale is good only until tomorrow, July 9th.  There are over 4,000 designs included so it will take a while to look through them!  You can access the sale items through the Silhouette Studio program or on the website HERE.

Tomorrow is also the last day for the  Lettering Delights  special offer I wrote about at the end of June.  If you love cute characters, the special deal from Lettering Delights was extended to July 9th at midnight.  The huge new collection of 380 cut-its called "Stringbeans" can be yours for FREE if you spend $45 between June 26th at 12:01 a.m.and July 9 at 11:59 p.m. (Mountain Time).

You do not have to spend the $45 all in one purchase - all of your purchases until the deadline will accumulate towards qualifying for this massive freebie.

You do have to have a  Lettering Delights  account and be logged into that account when you make your purchases so the purchases can be credited toward this offer.  Once you spend $45, the Stringbeans will be automatically added to your library.

You can use the code "BigBang" to get 35% off a purchase of $10 or more.

Speaking of "big"...this giant shoe was a new feature at the Picnic in the Park.  It was part of an activity for kids but ended up sitting all alone in the field for a while.  It certainly attracted some attention!

  1. Thank you for all the CM updates, appreciate knowing the current state of things! Now to go count my albums and pages!

    1. Hi di - I have counted over and over again. At least it reminds us what we have and I actually feel more motivated to scrapbook than I have for a while! It is good to take stock every so often...but also a little sad not to know if we will be ever be able to get these albums (or similar quality albums) after the Last Chance Order. Good luck with the counting!
