New & Improved MemoryWorks Express Program

MemoryWorks has decided to do some revisions to their current monthly kit program. Here's the e-mail I received last week:

We are thrilled to announce some exciting changes to our MemoryWorks Express program!

After evaluating our monthly kit program over the past two years, we are excite
d to announce some changes that are sure to delight you and your customers. Rest assured that you will continue to receive the same great product-packed, coordinating kits you've come to love and expect, however we are streamlining each kit in order to add more flexibility, more creativity, and more inspiration than ever!

MW Express: Now only $29.95 per Month!

You and your customers will continue to receive an awesome product-packed kit at an amazing value, giving you a little more wiggle room in your scrapbook budget each month!

MWExpress Changes: (Effective January 2008)

New Lower Price!

The very best news of all is that we will be reducing the price of each kit to only $29.95, with a reduced shipping cost of $6.50, per month. What more could you want from a fabulous monthly kit program?

New & Improved Kits!

With the new price reduction, our monthly kits will no longer include a set amount of patterned paper, cardstock, altered items and ribbon. Instead each monthly kit will include varying amounts of designer paper, cardstock and embellishments. This new change will allow us the flexibility to add all of the hottest, trendsetting products that are available right now in each monthly kit, and not be confined to any specific sizes, numbers or quantities. Plus, we'll be able to add more of the fun embellishments and elements to finish all of those layou
ts and projects you create each month.

New Ideas & Creativity!

You and your customers will love the brand new Idea Express PDF, an added feature to our new and improved kits! Our Idea Express PDF will be packed with inspiration and ideas highlighting the contents of each kit. Each Idea Express PDF will feature sketches and samples from PageMaps, showcasing ideas for layouts, cards and projects, along with some suggestions for altered items and product enhancements from our very own Me
moryWorks catalog. This PDF will be released each month in our Idea Express email on the same day that the kit is announced. This will give you and your customers more creatvity and inspiration by allowing you to see all of the exciting projects you can create with your MWExpress... with time to add a subscription before the kits are shipped out.

We hope you're just as excited as we are about these new changes!

I am super excited about the upcoming changes. I will keep everyone updated as I receive more information. This monthly kit club is a subscription, but can be canceled at ANY TIME! Let me know if you are interested in purchasing a kit for yourself!

Here's a little peak of the January 2009 kit:

Here is the layout that we started with:
I started by scraplifting my own layout based on this layout. I then passed my layout to the next person who scraplifted MY layout. Her layout was passed to another person...and so on and so forth. It was so fun to see the progression of layouts that come forward.

Here are Team 2's layouts:
