In the Story Classroom this month we are focusing on stories related to the theme of Listen.
Here are a few thoughts about this particular theme:
A big piece of many of our lives are the sounds we hear as we go about our daily lives. Music, voices, and general noise of life fill our days. This month we are telling stories about listening and what that means to us in our lives.
Initial story ideas for the Listen theme include:
- Document what you are listening to right now. That might be a soundtrack or it might be other sounds in your life.
- Pay attention to conversations happening around you. Write one of them down and tell that story.
- Are you a good listener? What are the qualities that make up someone who is a good listener?
HEADS UP: We've made a change to how we are offering the Add On's this month. The different Add On's will now be 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. Please note that the Crafters Ink pad option will only be available to Story Stamp™ subscribers. You can see this month's Add On's and read more below.
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.

Again, thanks so much for subscribing and/or considering my Story Subscription program! If you have any questions about this program please let me know below in the comments.
STORIES BY THE MONTH™
Stories By The Month™ kits now include 4x6 chipboard, 3x4 and 4x6 cards, a 3x4 stamp, a sticker sheet, and an embellishment (wood veneer, cork, etc). Subscribers were sent an email last month with information related to this adjustment, including the price increase and the option to cancel your subscription without penalty. If you have questions about this adjustment please reach out to my Customer Service Team. Stories By The Month™ Kits are all based on the designs we offered digitally each month throughout 2018.

This subscription is a great option for those who are looking to tell more calendar/everyday life sorts of stories.
ADD ON OPTIONS
This month we are making a change to our Add On options and making them 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). Please note that the Crafters Ink pad option will only be available to Story Stamp™ subscribers.
Our goal with this change is to decrease the overall amount of products offered as Add On's across all the kits but increase the quantities of the items we do offer with the hope that we will be making more of what you guys actually want (vs. more product overall). It's all still a work in progress.
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.
