Begin Story Kit™ + February 2022 Stories By The Month Kit

Today's the 13th of the month and that means a new Story Kit, Story Stamp, and Stories By The Month kit. This month we are focusing on stories related to the theme of Begin.  

This month we are celebrating and documenting those moments in our lives that signal a beginning. Whether it’s a small step or a giant leap, there’s likely a story there worth telling. Join us this month as we excavate our own stories of beginning or beginning all over again.

Initial story ideas for this theme include:

  1. Tell a story of a time where you had to start over. What was it like to begin again?

  2. Being a beginner can challenge us in the best possible ways. Document a time when you were a beginner (especially as an adult) and how that made you feel.

  3. Tell a story of beginning by documenting what it looked like, sounded like, and felt like.

PLEASE NOTE: This month's kits are in the warehouse and will ship on our normal schedule. Subscribers will be updated on the shipping of last month's kits sometime this week. Thank you again for your patience as we navigate supply chain issues. 

STORY KIT™

The Story Kit™ includes: 

Here's a video overview of the  Story Kit™ and Add-On options this month:

Starting with the Begin Story Kit™ we are making a change to the number of journal cards in the kit and adding in 3, 6x8 papers and 2, 3x8 papers (sized to the outside of the page protector). Going forward the kits will include those papers along with 6, 4x6 cards and 8, 3x4 cards.

STORIES BY THE MONTH™

Stories By The Month™ kits include 4x6 chipboard, 3x4 and 4x6 cards, a 3x4 stamp, a sticker sheet, and an embellishment (wood veneer, cork, fabric, etc). 

Here is a full look at the kit: 

STORIES BY THE MONTH™ DESIGN NOTES: For 2022 there will be 5 designs that are repeated each month to give you some design consistency throughout the year. Each month you will get a 3x4 gratitude card (with the current month’s name at the top), a “this + that” card with the month, a “this happened” card with the month, and a “moments” color blocked card with the colors for the month. You will also get a 4x6 card each month with the monthly circle design AND the 3x4 stamp will have the uppercase handwritten month each month.

And a video overview:

This subscription is a great option for those who are looking to tell more calendar/everyday life sorts of stories. 

DIGITAL STORIES BY THE MONTH IS BACK

After taking a year to get our digital and physical Stories By The Month™ kit collections lined up, we are so excited to offer our popular Stories By The Month Kits™ as a digital subscription AND for a new lower price than what we previously sold these kits for in our shop.

Starting on 12/13/21 this kit will be offered for only $9.99 as an ongoing month-to-month commitment. Our month-to-month subscription option allows you to cancel at any point prior to the 10th of the following month without penalty or a cancellation fee.  

STORIES BY THE MONTH™ DESIGN NOTES: For 2022 there will be 5 designs that are repeated each month to give you some design consistency throughout the year.

CURRENT SUBSCRIBER BONUS: Stories By The Month™ physical kit, Story Kit™, Story Stamp™ and Story Class™ subscribers will be able to add the new Stories By The Month™ Digital Kit as an add on to their order for only $5 during the add on period each month.  

Thank you for your patience this year as we worked to get our digital and physical Stories By The Month™ kit designs in release date alignment. We can’t wait to see what you create! As always, please reach out to our Customer Service team with any questions and they would be happy to help!

ADD ON OPTIONS 

Subscriber Add On options this month include a 4x6 Planner Stamp Set, a set of plastic abbreviated months of the year, a set of adhesive-backed fabric numbers, and a set of transparent details cards (use a slick writer to write on top). 

Add On options are available to all Story Kit™, Story Stamp™, and Stories By The Month™ subscribers (this excludes Digital Story Kit/Story Class subscribers since you don't have any part of your subscription shipped already). 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: you need to do this before the 15th of the month in order for them to ship with your kit. 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.

    Great idea, re: storage of the SBTM! Is it possible to get the mailer 'design' of the STBM in a digital format, for those of us who get the digital SBTM? I'd love to print it out into my own envelope so I can store all my printed versions of the kits in a similar format :)

    Will the Begin word be the same fabrication as the December Daily phrase, this story has my heart? I'm so excited to receive the kit with all it's changes. Well done! Have a Happy 2022!

    so just to be clear.... if I am a stories by the month PHYSICAL kit subscriber, I can get the story kit DIGITAL kit (this month BEGIN) for $10 as an add on? because I subscribe to the digital kit now and pay $20 a month. I can put that $10 towards other goodies! 🥰
