Present Story Kit™ + January 2024 Stories By The Month

Today's the 10th of the month and that means a new  Story KitStory Stamp, and Stories By The Month kit

This month we are focusing on stories related to the theme of Present.

As we wrap up another trip around the sun, focusing on the dual meanings of the word present feels like a wonderful storytelling invitation. This time of year is often full of presents - the gifts we give and receive AND there's so much to be gained from grounding ourselves in the present moment. This month we are telling stories of gifts - things, moments, memories - and what it means for each one of us to be living in the present moment in our own season of life. 

Initial story ideas for this theme include:

  • What is the best present you've ever received and why?
  • How are you practicing being present in your life right now? What does that mean for you? 
  • Use "this moment" as a repeated phrase to jumpstart journaling about a specific event. 

STORY KIT

The  Story Kit™ includes:

    Love everything about this month’s subscription! Congrats and thank you for always thinking ahead. I’m really intererested in adding a 6x8 album on my box this month but I’m deeply concerned about the shipping taxes: does the $5.00 apply to the albums or it will be the regular shipping?
    Thanks in advance!!

      Anything that you can Add On via the add on menu will be shipped for the rate your kit usually ships.

      Sweetheart, there are A LOT, I mean A LOT discounted albums you can add to your box (I am a new INTERNATIONAL subscriber for SBTM kit). What you can also do, since OLW is also coming up and it's a really busy month, is to order the page protectors.
      And the album later or the AMAZING DIY albums.
      ALI, That one is excellent. Reminds me of the good old days.
      Have an amazing, Joyful rest of your December and Holidays everybody... Love and light to all of you... Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 🎁🎉

    Do we need to renew our Inspiration By The Month subscriptions for 2024 or will it roll over?

    Triple meaning - how do you present or think you present yourself to others? Or have you ever been "presented" to (i.e conferences, trainings, etc) or given a presentation? Or has anyone ever presented themselves to you in a declaration of love (thinking proposal of any kind) or have you ever made a big presentation of a dog, horse etc at a competition?

    Lots of thoughts!

    Quick question about the SBTM stamp set…will the month font remain the same so you will end up with a complete set at the end of the year or is the month on each stamp a different font?

      Each month is a different font.

    Has the 6x8 paper pack been delayed or has it sold out already? It’s not showing up in my add ons? Thanks

      Can you see it? I can see it on my end. If you still can't you can reach out to CS and they will be happy to help.

    I am happy about more journaling cards in the kits and the inclusion of vellum. I am curious if it would be possible to have the 4 x 6 card printing be horizontal rather than portrait. I don't think I have ever seen page protectors run in that direction. I am also wondering if the ephemera pack will include other items this year, i.e. felt, canvas, cork etc or just the paper items. Thanks

      Hi! That vertical card is just in this particular kit - it's not a repeated thing from month to month. This year will be paper die cuts - not the same shapes each month.

    I couldn’t see the paper pack add-on either and now realize I must have missed it. Will it be available again for Jan 10 order?
