A few weeks ago I sent out an e-mail stating that Creative Memories had filed for Chapter 11 and that I would be keeping you updated as I received information from the company. So as promised here is what I know so far.
Creative Memories had a conference call with all consultants today to update us on the status of the company. What they clearly said is that the company is NOT going out of business and they are NOT going to be bought by another company. Creative Memories is restructuring and will emerge this fall with a new look and a new product line.
So what does that mean for all us?
Well first of all, I want you all to know that I am not going anywhere and that I am sticking with the company and all of you to meet your needs. I enjoy working with all of you and helping you to complete projects that last a lifetime. I intend to still hold crops in my home, weekend events at hotels, and parties where we can all come together and share our life stories and document them. Helping you complete albums is very important to me – it may just look a little different as we move forward.
With that said, take a deep breathe – our new product line will NOT include many of our tools, decorative products, current album coversets, blank refill pages and page protectors. At this moment, I don’t know if any will remain, so to be certain you have what you need, please pull out your albums right away and figure what you need to finish these projects. Creative Memories has promised us that they will fill all orders for pages and protectors, but that the last chance to do that will be in July. So you need to do this soon. If you have favorite album colors that you want to use and complete a set with, please plan for that as well.
The majority of our product line will go to While Supplies Last on July 8th. That means that once it is gone they will not be making anymore. So, if there is something that you need to finish a project or a special tool, or paper pack that you love, please consider ordering it soon.
So, how do go about ordering the things you need?
1. You can place an order through me and I will take care of it for you.
2. You can go directly to my website www.mycmsite.com/tkozel and order there and have it shipped to you.
3. Reward Club Members – please use up all of your credits by August 21st. This is the date that the current program will end. Remember that as you make purchases you will acquire more credits. Contact me if you want help in figuring out how to make the most of your purchases with these credits.
Yes, there are BIG changes coming right now, some of which we will grieve, but the NEW picture of CM is filled with hope, opportunity and excitement.
We are going to have a NEW, fresh product line, one which will include Digital, Fast to Fabulous and Picfolio style albums. Our new product line expected in the fall has been described as quick, simple and archival. By the way, our Fast to Fabulous won 1st place for Innovative Products at the DSA Awards last week!
I know that this is a lot of information to take in, so please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns. My cell number is 630-841-8851 feel free to text or call.
I truly look forward to continuing to help each and every one of you complete albums that last a lifetime.
