In the Story Classroom this month we are focusing on stories related to the theme of Type.
Here are a few thoughts about this particular theme:
I have long been a fan of letterforms and I thought this would be a fun theme to explore in terms of design ideas and in terms of the stories from our lives. This month’s stories can really be about anything or about something more specific like the “type” of person you have become (or want to be), who is “just your type,” and maybe something about your favorite type of adventure. Join me as we come together again to get more of our stories told.
Initial story ideas for the Type theme include:
- Who is "just your type" and what are the characteristics of that person?
- Pick any story from your life right now and tell it by using a variety of letterforms/fonts. Go big with your type choices.
- What is your most favorite type of adventure?
If you are new to the Story Subscription program, check out all the details here.
If you are already a subscriber the content in the classroom will be available to you on the 15th.
Here's a look at the Story Kit™ contents for Type (this subscription is currently at capacity - please join the waiting list to receive a kit as soon as a spot opens up):
ADD ON OPTIONS | Current and new subscribers can select + purchase Add-On's via your new drop-down menu access under your user name in the top right corner of the site. If you subscribe to more than one you will have a Box for each subscription and the ability to purchase Add-On's for each one. Depending on product availability subscribers may be able to purchase the Add-On's after the Add-On period has ended and regular shop shipping rates will apply because they will ship separately from the kit.
Here are the optional Add-Ons for subscribers of the Home Story Kit™ theme. All three of these products are exclusive to subscribers at this time (but may be added to the shop in the future).
Here's a video overview of the Story Kit™ and Add-On options this month:

STORIES BY THE MONTH™
Last December I introduced a brand new subscription called Stories By The Month™. Each Stories By The Month™ kit includes chipboard, 3x4 and 4x6 cards, and a 3x4 stamp. These are all based on the designs we offered digitally each month throughout 2017.
Here is a full look at the kit for May:
This month we included two additional 3x4 cards for those of you who use the term "Mum" rather than "Mom."
And a video overview:
The response to this kit has been far beyond our initial estimates and we are increasing quantities each month. Stories By The Month™ is currently on a Waiting List. Sign up on the Waiting List to be able to receive the first available kit.
This subscription is a great option for those who are looking to tell more calendar/everyday life sorts of stories.
Check out this post for more information about this new subscription, including differences between the subscription options offered.
