Sadly, the DVD turned into a big mess. We (the SG gals) and the producer could never come to an agreement on the way the DVD should look. To make a long story short, we just didn't feel that the end result was "us". We were promised a certain look and quality and what we got was not up to our standards, not even close. There was no way that we were going to release an okay product and expect people to pay for it. We want each product we present to be the best that we can make it. Needless to say it's been very frustrating and exhausting to deal with. We finally came to the conclusion that moving forward with the DVD and the producer was not an option.

I am so sorry that we haven't let anyone know of this situation until now. Speaking for myself, it has been a very embarrassing. However, I feel that releasing the DVD would be even more embarrassing. We have been trying to come up with a way to use the material we have for the DVD (25 sketches and 75 layouts that we love!) minus the instructional segments. We are currently looking into turning it into a CD to view on your computer and then you can print the sketches and layouts as you please. We are hoping that this is something we can do in the near future.

If anyone has any questions about it, don't hesitate to ask!

Although I was really looking forward to the DVD, I'd be happy with a CD of sketches and layouts.

Awwwww... bummer
Allison-Sorry you had such a bad experience.

Oh well on the bright side Vol 8 of sketches comes out in just a little over 3 months!!!!

And maybe someday I'll get the chance to attend one of Allison's classes at Scrapapalooza(I think thats how you spell it)

A CD of printable sketches and layouts inspired by the sketches sounds terrific to me! I'd like to be on that waiting list!

Allison, your sketches have been such a blessing to me, thank you!!!

I'm so sorry that happened to you guys, Allison. Thank you for letting us know. You have nothing to be embarrassed about. You did the right thing, not putting out an inferior product that doesn't represent SG the way you want it to.

I look forward to whatever you choose to do with the sketches and layouts. Your whole family and what you share with us has been a huge blessing to me also. I'm a busy working mom and you have me turning out amazing layouts so quickly!

I think it's really cool that you chose to nix the project rather than release a product that wasn't up to your standards. Makes me feel confident shopping with you in the future.

You did the right think by scrapping (ha ha no pun intended) the project than put out a low quality product.

Please let us know when you come up with anything else!

It's great to hear that there is interest in the CD. We weren't exactly sure what to do with the sketches and layouts and this feedback is exactly what we needed to hear to move forward with it.

We've got a lot on our plate right now after relocating our store to a bigger location and working on getting the store ready for our big grand re-opening in April. After that we've got NSD and another 'Palooza on the horizon. I'm going to talk to the other girls today and see if I can't figure out when we can get to working on the CD. Keep an eye out on our blogs (you can find mine and the Sketch Support links in my signature) for more information.

Thank you so much for your continued support!
