Stories By The Month™ | 2024 Changes

We are excited to reveal new changes to our  Stories By The Month™ subscription for 2024 starting with our January themed kit which launches Sunday, December 10th, 2023. 

 The 2024 monthly kits will consist of:

  • (8) 3x4 and (6) 4x6 Cardstock Journal Cards
  • (8) 3x4 and (6) 4x6 Vellum Journal Cards
  • 4x6 Chipboard sheet 
  • 4x6 Sticker Sheet
  • Variety Die Cut Paper Pack

The biggest change you will see this year is that we are removing the 3x4 stamp from the kit and will be offering it to subscribers as an add-on. Moving forward this change will mean that the new SBTM add-on stamps will be consistent with the quality of the stamps we sell in the shop. Our goal with removing the stamp from the kit is to be able to provide you with a higher quality product, as well as an opportunity to choose the stamp if you would like to purchase it, since not everyone participates in stamping in our community. 

For those of you who were fans of the bigger 6x8 paper sizes included in the 2023 kits, we will have a quarterly offering of a 6x8 Seasonal Specialty Paper Pack (sized at page protector dimensions of 7x8.25 in) available as an add-on. These papers were designed to coordinate with the first three themes for 2024 (January, February, and March). The next 6x8 Seasonal Specialty Paper Pack will be available with April's theme that goes live in March of 2024. 

Each Quarterly Paper pack will consist of:

  • (2)  7x8.25 in Cardstock papers
  • (2) 7x8.25 in Vellum sheets 
  • (2) 7x8.25 in Transparencies. 

Our Customer Service team is happy to help with any questions or concerns. Please reach out by Friday, December 8th to make any changes to your subscription. 

Here is a video walkthrough from Ali: 

INSPIRATION BY THE MONTH™

We are also excited to announce that we will be adding a new lesson into the Inspiration By The Month™ classroom each month from a Guest Storyteller from the community, similar to what we offer in the Story Class classroom. This online class subscription will continue to include the digital version of Stories By The Month™ and inspirational lessons using both the physical and digital kit by members of the Ali Edwards community. All physical Stories By The Month™ kit subscribers will be continue to receive access to the Inspiration By The Month™ class content as part of your subscription. Physical Stories By The Month™ kit subscribers will still have the opportunity to add on the digital Stories By The Month™ kit to their orders for $5 during the add-on period.

    I am a digital SBTM subscriber. Going forward will the digital stamp and papers be included in the digital kits or will they be an add on? If they are what will be the cost? I was considering switching to the physical kit. What is the cost for the ‘kit’, stamp add on and papers?

      Hi! The digital stamp and paper pack will be add-ons. The digital stamp will be $0.99 and the digital paper pack will be $1.49. The price of the physical kit will remain the same.

      I didn’t saw the digital stamp and digital paperpack as add ons?

      @Anke78 they were there but you had to scroll right to the bottom of all the add ons - I mean a really long way down. I didn’t think they were there at first and got some confusing info from customer service. I missed them first time as I expected to see them at the top where the adds on for the current month usually are. This time they were after all the both physical and digital extra products. Hopefully in future months they will be at the top.

      Thank you @emmaaliceturner! Too bad I didn’t see and order them :(

    I'm so happy with these changes, as I am back to weekly PL in pocket page format for 2024. I used to feel like I was wasting the stamps, as I would save them up and donate them and would have had to cut up the larger papers. I am going to keep my SBTM subscription due to the changes. Thank you!

    Yes! Love all the cards, vellum and die cuts. I personally do not need all the stamps. I’ve been a subscriber since 2018 and that’s a lot of stamps! Love the option of a paper pack!
    Thanks

    Wow! Love these changes for 2024! Perfect for those of us who still love pocket pages. Fun to add vellum cards too. The January kit is beautiful! Love the addition of your mixed media pattern, Ali.

    Love the new look of the kit. Will miss the papers but appreciate they will continue as add on. Wish there would be 3 each instead if 2 each of the 6 x 8 add on papers for the 3 months.

      Yes! I thought the same, that it would make sense to have three of each type, one for each month.

      However, I do love the new look of the kit :)

    I was considering cancelling my SBTM subscription given the 2023 format did not suit my documenting style, but your changes for 2024 are so on point for me. I love the new format. Thanks for keeping it fresh Ali!

    I love all of these changes!!! I find that I do not use the stamps very often so I will not miss having them in the kit. I do love the 6x8 papers and am happy for the option to add them on quarterly - will definitely be doing that!!

    Okay Ms. Edwards, I'm going to need you to show me how to use 4x6 vellum! But you had me at vellum, so....

    This looks great! I love the changes—especially all the vellum! I would love it if it were possible to subscribe to the quarterly 6x8 paper packs and the digital SBTM kits. I do not always have internet access and with only 2 days for the add-ons, I sometimes don’t get a chance to add anything. It would be so helpful if I could just subscribe and not need to worry about it!
