I don't know how I got there but I found myself at Studio Calico site. I saw something about a Project Life Kit, clicked something about it and gave my CC information for a waiting list.

I can't tell if they automatically send you a PL kit or if you paying to be put in line for getting a kit or to see what the kit is...I have no idea.

Anyone have an idea what I did? LOL

As it says you are on the waiting list. Once there is a kit available you'll get an email saying so. Then you'll get billed. If I'm not mistaken it is a subscription.
If you aren't interested, just send them a mail saying you want to get off the waiting list.

Is it a waiting list for the current kit or a waiting list to be a subscriber and once I am actually a subscriber, I will get a kit every month automatically or will I be on the wait list each month and sometimes get the kit and sometimes not depending on demand?

I've read that there is a cancellation fee for getting off of the waiting list but I'm not sure.

It is a monthly PL kit and the March kit is sold out. They've had a big response to this kit club so you may get a kit in April or you may have to wait another month. They will notify you when your account is activated. They don't charge your credit card until your kit is shipped. I get this kit and really like it.

I just did the same thing, the way I understand it is that once you've been notified, you are subscribed and then get a kit every month. It's a 6 month commitment. I found it a little confusing at first because it doesn't exactly tell you what you are clicking onto. I found more info through the forums. I signed up last Sunday and was put on a waiting list. It sounds like I may get an April kit or maybe May. Hope of getting March is very slim.

You won't get a March kit because those have already been sent out and people who were on the waiting list in January aren't even getting that kit. It might be May before you get one.

As the others have said, you are now committed to a 6 month sub unless you pay a $15.00 cancellation fee. Once your sub is "active" you will automatically receive the kit until you cancel, at the end of 6 months you can cancel without a penalty, but you will keep getting the kit until you actively cancel.

Does this mean that even if you are a subscriber you (for say 6 months) you are not guaranteed to get a kit every month if they run out, will your subscription just keep going until you have gotten 6 kits or does it end in the 6 month time period. Sorry, if I am not understanding correctly or if this post is confusing

Right now you are on the waiting list. This is because they order the kit items well in advance and are increasing the quantities each month, but not fast enough.

Once you begin receiving the kit, you are a subscriber and are guaranteed to get one each month until you cancel. You are committed to a six month subscription, but you will continue to receive the kit after that unless you cancel. If you cancel before your 6 months is up, there is a $15 cancellation fee.

On their site, if you click on kits in the upper left you can see the contents of the current and past kit, though again, they are sold out so you can't buy it.

You definitely will not get March and my guess is not April either.

I bet if you email customer service and explain that you were confused they may waive that $15 fee if you cancel right now, but people really seem to love the kit! I get the scrapbooking one and love it so far.

Hope that helps!

Once your subscription goes live you are guaranteed a kit.

You may be on the wait list a couple months for a PL kit.

If you are a kit member, do you get first dibs with the add on kits? and if you do, can you pretty much get any add on you want or do those run out too because of demand? Reason I ask is, if you were a member and wanted to get the NEverland add on kits, did you have the opportunity to buy them all, or did you miss out too??
PS. how do I watch a thread?

Oh I wasn't considering canceling unless I was going to pay each month and get nothing.

I don't mind the 6 month committment. But good question about the add ons. I watched the video and still don't understand.

The neverland add ons sold out in two minutes both for the subscriber presale and the also the public sale. Seems like the add ons are being snatched up lately only to be resold for a huge profit.

As a subscriber you get access to the pre-sale of add ons 12 hours before the general public. Last month several add ons lasted for a few days, but you are not guaranteed your choice of add on. This month they all went very fast.

They do hold back some (they never say how many) if the add ons for the general public release time which is midnight eastern, so subbers have two chances to snag them. From what I understand, for several month it was pretty easy to get add ons but this month was definitely crazy.
