Default December Kit

I'm beginning to wonder if I made a mistake in re-joining the Paper Tole club. This is the second kit in a row where they have sent really old paper tole and papers. These happen to be from 2012, and how do I know, because I already have them. I'm going to give it one more try but if I get another set of really old paper tole I am through. Am I just being miserable because I'm over tired? Are my expectations set too high? I don't know but I'm not happy.

I wouldn't be happy either!! You would think that they would be sending new items every month, not cleaning out their old stash!! Usually PW is better than that.

Yeah, those were my thoughts. I'm thinking they're cleaning out the warehouse and trying to find different ways to get rid of old stuff. I agree, this is not the typical PW and I sure hope this is not going to be the new normal.

I've noticed also with some of the papers that are being sent out with the kits, dazzles included, have patterns that are the '2lbs of paper' variety, ... the music notes craft paper was a 20 sheet/$1 back when mom's warehouse was around - saw that included in one of the subs kits for December.

That is a bummer, Daria. I can't believe there isn't any new paper tole for them to send out. I wonder if they're replacing the paper tole with the foiled fancies...if so, I like and use the paper tole much more. I hope that's not the plan.

I thought the whole 'sell' for the kit clubs was that you got new never-before issued stuff before anyone else did? Was thinking of rejoining but think I will hold off for a bit now...

I have been in these kits for several years, and find that end of the year is "recycled" but then the new catalog comes out and everything is shiny and new again. But I totally agree, if that does not bear out next month I am canceling all of it. I have too much to be buying unseen simply repeats.

If I had known that I would have waited to start my membership in February. Lesson learned.
