  2. Drhp April 14, 2011 at 3:39 am

    Yeah! Orders in. Ty Kathy.

  3. Linette April 14, 2011 at 3:51 am

    Kathy I’m a dork and ordered the kit BEFORE watching the video so I didn’t download the tutorial. Tried to go back to paypal screen after I watched the video and I couldn’t get back to the paypal screen. LOSER!!! I’m living up to the PITA name. Can you email the tutorial to me? Please!

  4. yayaphilly April 14, 2011 at 4:04 am

    I ordered the kit and I’m so excited can’t wait for the Ustream.

  5. Nancy April 14, 2011 at 4:07 am

    Lu être, I did the same thing and well, I need an email too!

  6. Anonymous April 14, 2011 at 4:17 am

    Kathy, Linette is not alone. I ordered before watching video as well. I sent a message to your email regarding the snafu I made. So sorry for the inconvenience.

  7. octlove April 14, 2011 at 4:27 am

    Just ordered mine..woohoo…took a glimpse at the tutorial…can’t wait to start on this project:)

  8. Dina April 14, 2011 at 4:41 am

    Just ordered mine!!! Just one question, Do you provide the elastic for the inside? I didn’t see that in the video.

  9. Sandy April 14, 2011 at 5:06 am

    Got mine, so happy! As for emailing, I have tried emailing my tutorial to another computer to print it off and it is too big 🙁

  10. Melinda April 14, 2011 at 5:17 am

    I am relatively new to your site. I have been watching past recording and love your work. I have never ordered kits before but….wow, there is always a first and this called out to me. Can’t wait for the class.

  11. Michelle April 14, 2011 at 6:47 am

    Hi Kathy,
    love it, love it, love it. Sent you an email, can’t wait for the class.

  12. Debbie Fejes April 14, 2011 at 11:05 am

    I have been waiting on this kit for months!!! You obviously don’t make very many kits. By the time I get my email they are sold out. I am very disappointed, you obviously have a great following and that is understood, however, I feel you should plan better and be able to supply for the demand. At this point I am just going to unsubscribe, there are others that feel this way I am sure.

  13. Olga-MIA April 14, 2011 at 11:12 am

    Ah man !!! I went to sleep, woke up this morning and it was sold out ! Yikes ! THat should teach me not to sleep while waiting for your kit ! lol Cant wait for the Ustream Kathy ! Kind regards, Olga

  14. Afshan April 14, 2011 at 11:50 am

    Hi Kathy, by the time i saw this in the morning (in the UK) it was sold out – any chnace of more kits?

  15. Kathy Files April 14, 2011 at 12:04 pm

    Hi guys– Yes I will try my very best to assemble another batch. I hate that you are disappointed Debbie. I make 36 kits — that is all I can handle for now. I would love to supply enough for everyone but I can’t. If you are still interested please email me a paperphenomenon at gmail dot com. Thank you.

  16. Anonymous April 14, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    SOLD OUT! 🙁 I would still love a kit! Any chances of more coming?? Pretty Please with a cherry on top:) LOVE your work!!


  17. Gloria Westerman April 14, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    WOW….I think you need a assistant…..will work for kits…..hehehehe
    I saw your video last night before I went to bed and woke up and now sold out… freaking awesome is that…..for THEM!!! will be there for class and can’t wait…..I think I’m still in stock that I can’t get this kit….

  18. julie1551 April 14, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    How rude of some people. You work full time & do a fantastic job & if some people WATCHED the video they would see you are trying to put more kits together. Those who unsubscribe just because they don’t get kit are NOT true PITA’s anyway & are being SOOKY LA LA’s. We don’t need them. Well done Kathy you are doing a brilliant job. Love ya

  19. Kathy Files April 14, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    Yes Dina it comes with the black Grograin ribbon. it’s not elastic. Thank you!!!!!

  20. Kathy Files April 14, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    Thank you Julie– it’s ok I kinda understand the frustration. I love to shop and buy nice things and when I can’t have it I am not a happy person. But thank you for always having my back. Love ya!!!!

  21. Shauna April 14, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Wow- that was quick have purchased the instructions – any clues as to where I might be able to get the fabby camera and airplane charms. Many thanks for all your wonderful products and videos. It is addictive this scrapbook/paper thing. Regards from the UK. Shauna

  22. Linette April 14, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Kathy I understand disappointment, but really you are only 1 person with a full time job and a family. I really think the comment was totally unecessary and hurtful. People miss out on kits all the time. That’s why I stalked your blog for this one. LOL I checked your blog before I went to bed and THERE IT WAS! I am so pumped!!! Does anyone say that anymore??? lol. Anyhoo, you are TOTALLY FABULOUS and TRUE PITA babes will always have your back! Super big hugs!!!!

  23. love4scrap April 14, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    Kathy – You come up with the most amazing projects! Love it – Melissa

  24. Karen April 14, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    Darn, missed this one, but I went ahead and ordered the Tutitorial. GREAT job Kathy! I’m going to try to gather all the items myself before the ustream. The charms (i.e. camera, plane and coins) are going to hard to duplicate, so any help I’d appreciate. Thanks Kathy for all the wonderful projects you create. I’ve been a follower for a couple of years and you just continue to amaze!!

  25. Tazza April 14, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    I would love to have a supply list so I can go out and find everything for this project it is beautiful as always! I also really don’t understand why anyone would unsubcribe just because they didn’t get a kit! Go ahead and act like a spoiled child… we all will continue to enjoy all the fab creations Kathy makes and you can be left in the dust!
    PITAs Unite! ;D

  26. Ruth April 14, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    People, Kathy works so hard and does all this for us and gives so much of herself and gives for free all the instructions and the supply list. We need to support her and build her up, she is a wonderful, loving, giving person. Please don’t say negative things about her.. Kathy, we love you..

  27. Wende April 14, 2011 at 2:53 pm

    Ladies and for some I use that term loosely. Being rude is not the approach that would make our Queen want to accommodate you!!!!! You can not expect Kathy to be able to predict how many kits will be wanted. 36 kits is a huge task. She works a full time exec job, has a son and is a newlywed. I know putting together the kits is a lot of work from designing, purchasing elements and assembling them. Then there is the packaging and shipping. Everyone receives the email at the same time, with the exception of our overseas PITAS. If you cannot be nice, then I for one am glad you left. We will not miss you!

    Kathy as always beautiful work.!!!!!

  28. Shamila April 14, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    Oh man, I missed it!! Darn!!! Still, I want to make this project, is there any chance , Kathy, that you would let me know where to get the hardware (buckles etc) online?

  29. Anonymous April 14, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    A to the Men Wende! Preach it sista. Bravo my dear.She is ONLY hurting herself by unsubscribing.She will be missing out on future “crazy cool” projects that Kathy has in store for us.What a GR8 gift God has blessed you with Kathy. You are so generous and giving of your ideas. Thank you for wanting us to live our best lives as scrapbookers.
    Sold Out!! That is what supply and demand is all about. With the popularity of your site and kits, one must be very tenacious.We have act quickly. That is why I keep you bookmarked in my favorites. I check it constantly, either via iphone or on my computer.

    Warmest Regards,
    Asheboro, North Carolina

    If you cant say any thing nice, Dont say any thing at all…Oh my hell…DI

  31. rachele April 14, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    Missed out on the kit but I bought the TUT instead. This was my first TUT I’ve ever purchased from Kathy. Let me just say that it is worth EVERY penny! I didn’t realize that it would have photos of practically every step! It’s WONDERFUL!! I am sooo happy I got it & can’t wait for the class on USTREAM! Kathy, you are amazing. Taking all of this on yourself, you ROCK! THANK YOU for all the inspiration you share with us! All hail THE PITA QUEEN! 🙂

  32. Carol April 14, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    OMG Again! I stalked but I guess I’m not serial stalker yet. LOL! Well, I will still buy the instructions but I will miss out on all the fabulous charms and tinkets. Can you say where you purchased them, so maybe we can try to get them on our own?

    Thank you, Carol

  33. Nancy April 14, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    I am glad some of you ladies spoke up about Kathy! She has been very accommodating to me and I know to everyone here on the site! I want to say I was so tired yesterday getting ready for an art show and was literally exhausted when I got Kathy’s email that the kits would be going up at 10:00 pm. CST. I think I stalked Kathy’s site from then on, waiting for the kit to appear! I ordered even before the video came online!!!! I even missed the tutorial, cause I didn’t watch the video and know how to download it. I emailed Kathy right away and first thing this morn she emailed it to me. Thank you Kathy for your creativity and your generosity of time for an very tired lady!!!! LOL I did go to sleep finally at 12:00 EST!

  34. Brenda April 14, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    Sorry Girl I don’t live closer to ya. I love Crafts and have the time but am so far away. I could help you put thoes kits together in a jiff.
    I am 60 & feelin Nifty. Ha….

  35. KreativeKarla April 15, 2011 at 1:06 am

    Kathy…Great job on this one…I am amazed at the design and collection of papers and charms. It is all so beutiful I did not get a kit but I want to thank you for taking the time to do this and the videos for us. I will be sure to get my supplies together and join you. Julie…I don’t know what SOOKY LA LA’s are but I am sure I agree with you and just about fell out of my chair laughing. Kathy keep doing what your are doing, your PITA Babes love ya!


  36. shari April 15, 2011 at 4:24 am

    I too got the tutorial and it is my first of Kathy’s. OMG the work she puts into it is amazing, so detailed. Thanks Kathy. Shari (cricutrookie)

  37. TheFishie April 15, 2011 at 6:01 am

    Kathy, I don’t know if it would be easier or not, but I’d definitely be interested in a hardware-only kit (buckles, clasps, hinges, d-rings, charms, harder to find necessities). Paper I’ve found, as well as similar stamps. Thanks for all your awesomeness!

  38. Lisa April 15, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    I’d be interested in a kit if you can make more. How much were they? It’s a stunning project! Thanks so much for all you do for us. I don’t know how you have the time to accomplish everything that you do.

  39. The Cake Lady April 15, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    Kathy is pure GENIUS….. I stalked forever and my dad went to by the kit for me for my birthday but by the time he got to the site they were all gone, but….. I was able to put together a kit exactly the same except for the charms! The charms I did buy are pretty darn close to what’s in the original kit!!! I’m an impatient girl so I couldn’t wait for the second batch, lol!!! This will be the first time I get to follow along on the Ustream class. SOOOOOO Excited!

  40. Ruth April 15, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    Woo to the Hoo!!! I got my tutorial and it is fab, would not expect anything less than fab from Kathy, but this is fab x infinity… wow!!!
    so excited… now to start gathering supplies.. hope to see ya’all tomorrow.. hugz, Ruth

  41. want2win2 April 15, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    Oh this is such a great kit!!! I am sorry I missed it but im sure my wallet is HEHEHE-ing and happy!
    Not only is making kits time consuming but you dont want to make more than what is demanded and get stuck with a ton of extras! I think its a great idea that you are asking for people to email you with requests!

    How much was the kit???

    I love the kit but personally dont care for graphic 45 (altho this line is perfect for the look)but I am wondering if I can make it with other papers.

  42. Merilee Lane April 15, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    I am soooo sorry I missed the kit, but I bought the tutorial anyway. Your projects are unbelievable and I can’t wait to make this, even if I don’t have the kit. Thanks for always inspiring me to stretch my imagination and think outside the box!


  43. D~Fleur Designs April 16, 2011 at 1:30 am

    You are great Kat and your imagination, surely is a gift from the Big Man himself, we love you and thank you for all the inspiration!! I’ve never bought a TUT but i think this will be the one!!!!TFS!

  44. Candace April 16, 2011 at 3:12 am

    Kathy, I forgot to click on the files after paying for the kit. How can I get the tutorial? Sorry, I blame “hormone FOG”!

  45. Lilian April 16, 2011 at 4:43 am

    I happened to be on your site when you put this kit up. It was Friday noon here.Immediately ordered it! Thanks from Singapore! Can’t wait for your class.You are soo creative, love your work, Kathy!

  46. Mimi2six April 16, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    I’m a newbie to your site, love your talent. I would love to have had a chance at the kit. I would like to order one, it is fantastic. Do I need to let you know that I want this on another location? I have spent time looking at some of your videos, love your energy and your creativity. Don’t know what a PITA is, lol but I’m sure it’s not bad. Can’t wait to see Ustream live. I guess I will order the instructions if I can’t get a kit.

  47. SlomoMom April 16, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    I was online when the kit was posted and still missed it. I agree with what everyone is saying. Her lose, not Kathy’s. Some people just don’t have any “class”! Will be getting the tut, have found the paper, like everyone else it’s the hardware/charms that will be hard to find. Google here I come!

  48. Crabtree Creations April 17, 2011 at 6:17 am

    Let’s not give Downer Debbie any more air time. PITA Babes all over this planet love you Kathy and understand that you work a FT job in addition to this AMAZING, remarkable and creative thing you do here.
    I personally cannot imagine the time and effort it takes to do just ONE mini album or project, let alone the vast number that YOU do!
    Your creativity knows no bounds!
    You design the projects,
    make the projects,
    design the cut files,
    star in the videos,
    purchase the items for the kits,
    put the kits together,
    mail out the kits,
    teach the classes,
    author a blog and maintain a website,
    answer emails
    and that’s all after you get off work!
    We rational people know what a tremendous feat this is, and we appreciate you. I did not get a kit either, but I know that I can still watch the tutorial and attempt the project while you do it with the class. Since you do a detailed video describing what’s in the kit, I will be able to go out and find what I need. And I bet that it will take me a long time to find everything, just like it took YOU a long time, buying all that stuff for all the Pita’s…I am stunned that that Downer Debbie had the gall to criticize you and your site. Don’t let the comment of a nitwit ruin your day. Thousands of PITAS know the truth, and the truth is KATHY ROCKS!

  49. GrammaBird April 19, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    I too missed the kit – again – was on vacation bummer. I did get your wonderful tutorial and like others am busy trying to get all the supplies. Can you give us a hint as to where to get the camera and airplane charms. I found a camera but it is not as FAB as the one you showed. Thanks as always for sharing your talent – Hugs! PITA Barb

  50. sandi.james April 21, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    Kathy, I need the tutorial for this. I purchased the kit but there was a glitch saying my payment had been cancelled so I never got a confirmation where I could click on the “files” to download. Thanks.

  51. Anonymous April 22, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    Hi Kathy, When will the Travel Tales Kits be shipped out to us? I am very excited to get started on the projects.
