      I'm still a newbie so I'm not sure if this has been discussed already (or if I'm even putting this post in the right section)… Is their any possibility that one (or more) of the Swirlydoos kits will consist of any of the Pion Design paper? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their vintage look. Pion + Swirlydoos would = FABULOUS!!!

        There's been a LOT of discussion about Pion 🙂 Scroll down two posts from yours to I Want All Of These! and you'll see you're not the only one who covets their lovely papers. There was some discussion about them on the Christmas kit thread, too.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

              We're very lucky (and know it!) to have mom on our side 🙂 Who can say no to their mother?

                    I think the paper is pretty but one of the problems is the stuff outside the US seems to have problems having enough to order and then getting it here in a timely manner.

                      I know there's another kit club that's had Pion several times, so I don't think supply's an issue.

                        I think that the price is. An issue, I mean.
                        Maybe a Spotlight Kit?
                        I ordered some directly from Sweden using Jennike's link and while the shipping wasn't as bad as I expected, the paper itself is expensive. Gorgeous stuff, though.

                          I would imagine that shipping boxes of paper would be terribly expensive.

                            Oh my goodness YES YES YES! I HEAR YOU!!!!!!!! LMAO! I too covet these little lovelies! And I am looking into it for sure. I've already contacted the owner of PION and am waiting to hear if we can work something out.

                            The problem most definitely is not supply (to my knowledge). The problem is the obscene shipping fees. The papers themselves are terribly expensive in and of themselves. But when you have to ship multiple 25-35lb boxes of paper, the cost becomes prohibitive. On top of spending $1-3 per sheet of paper, we then are spending about $150.00 per box to ship it to the U.S. Just to cover OUR cost on the product we would have to charge a fortune. So, we will NOT be having a MAIN kit of PION designs, but a spotlight kit is definitely looking do-able!

                            I'll keep you all posted!

                              $150 a box – that IS obscene!Exciting about a Spotlight kit, though.
