I had no idea! I had an e-mail from them a few months back and wondered about the credit. I hope I didn't delete the e-mail bc I was thinking it might have been spam!

Same here! All of a sudden there was an email that I had a credit at Craft Junction. Nothing about it being from Northridge publishing or nothing about what issue it was a credit for. I easily could have deleted it.

If you just register/login to the site with the email that you use when you submit, the credit will automatically appear. I didn't get an email but decided to check out the site. Turns out I had a credit.

I logged into Craft Junction and it turns out I have credit, but it is not allowing me to use it at checkout. I have tried contacting craft junction's customer service twice and they haven't responded.

Where on the CJ site, are you guys seeing your credit? I'm not seeing anything when I log in there.

It shows up when I am logged in -under 'My Account'.

Gina -I contacted Paige because it wouldn't let me change my country for shipping and CJ did not respond to 3 of my emails. (I am finally able to change my address.)

Unfortunately the shipping for Canada is $20 flat rate.

Just wanted to give you a heads up that I got an email this morning telling me of a credit I have in CJ store. Does anyone know how they are paying us? Per monthly projects or lump sum? Calculated from Feb. to now? I ask because the credit I received is a big one (three digit) and I'm not sure how they calculated that. Thanks in advance.

I received my credits too, and made an order right away. I think the credit is for projects beginning February, but not sure it includes July...

I thought it was weird that there was no explanation in the email regarding what the credit was for, etc. My credit was pretty big too and I have no idea what that covered in issues or projects.

I don't know which issues these credits cover, but I've heard the "payment" is $25 per project.

That's what I was thinking, but in this case, one project of July was not rewarded... (

So those of you who received Craft Junction credits, was it just for the Feb pubs? I did receive an one email from Craft Junction about a month ago and it was my assumption that the credit was just for Feb. I had 5 pubs with Northridge in February.

I also had pubs with Northridge in March, April, May, June, July, etc and I have not received any additional emails with credits. I just logged into CJ to see and there are no credits for me there.

But some of you have received credits for published work beyond the Feb issue?

I just got my projects and magazines from all my pubs through July today (one March, one April, one July)

I never got an email from Craft Junction, but just went on the website and all of my credits were there

Izzy, the CJ credit that I received notification of via email on August 8th was for the Spring Create Mini Albums idea book that was in stores in late February (although I believe the book was officially a March issue). I know that my credit was for that pub since I haven't had anything else picked up by them this year. I still have not received a copy of the idea book though (neither the actual book nor digital access) and that is disappointing. Also I was wondering, does it seem to anyone else that CJ has a limited inventory of products to choose from?

I don't think the latest credits are from Feb through July, as I have more than 15 projects pubbed during that time. Plus I have only received my projects from March and April. I'm sure they're still sorting it out.

And I agree that there's not a lot of great buys at CJ right now so I just stocked up on adhesives.

I found out a little info. The credits from Craft Junction as issued in the past week or so are for pubs in the March, April, May and June issues only.

No credits for July have been issued yet and I was told it would likely be mid-September before July credits were given.

Also, if you had a lot of pubs, your credit with Craft Junction may have been split into 2 payments. One now and one next month.

Just want to give you guys a heads up that when they send you the email that your "order has been shipped". That's not the case.
I just checked the tracking on my order, which I made on August 9th, and it turns out that they didn't ship it till Aug 13th, which is two days ago. I don't mind waiting a bit longer for my products and I understand the cost of shipping, but don't send me an email saying it's been shipped when it's going to sit in your warehouse for 4 more days.

Does anyone know if we are able to use just a part of a credit -or do we have to use the whole amount (ie -the credit issued for 4 pubs)? Has anyone tried using less than a whole credit and 'kept the change'? TIA!

You can split it up. I received two separate credits, and have one more coming in September. I used all but $1.97 of the first one, and it kept that in my account. Today I placed another order using that $1.97 and a small portion of my new credit. It might be where I live, but my order arrived within 3 days.

I haven't received a thing...no projects, no magazines, no credit. I'd better email Paige.

Where do you find the credit? I should be getting a credit for something in March, sounds like those have been issued, but I'm not seeing anything.

Thanks in advance.

Here's an explanation on the credits that I received from Jen at Northridge:

We have been staggering sending out the credits to our lovely submitters so that there will not be any problems with stock through Craft Junction. They are also working on adding quite a bit more product onto Craft Junction, so our hope is that everyone can find something suited to her style. Additionally, the Craft Junctions credits for July-September projects will start to appear around the middle of September, so if you have had projects published in those issues you will see the credit for them very soon.
