This month we are focusing on stories related to the theme of Open.
I love beginning the new year with a welcoming theme like Open. Arms wide open is my favorite way to begin a new chapter (and sometimes that's easier said than done). This month we are inviting you to tell stories about what being open feels like, sounds like, and looks like in your own life.
Initial story ideas for this theme include:
- What are you open to in your life right now?
- Use this kit as a jumping off point for your storytelling this year: what do you want to be open to in this new chapter?
- Tell the story of a time in your past when you really felt open.
The Story Kit™ includes:

STORIES BY THE MONTH™
First and foremost we are excited to begin offering a classroom included with this subscription (called Inspiration By The Month™). Each month Lisa Varshine, Krystal Iduante, and Jen Wong will share inspiration in a classroom using pieces from the Stories By The Month™ kit.
Here is a full look at the kit this month:
The kit now includes a sheet of vellum or transparency (sized outside the page protector in a 6 inch x 8 inch album), a pattern paper, a 3 inch x 8 inch (outside the page protector) journal card with the month at the top which will be repeated each month, a 3 inch x 4 inch stamp set, chipboard, 4, 3 inch x 4 inch journal cards, 3, 4 inch x 6 inch journal cards and an embellishment.
And a video overview:
This subscription is a great option for those who are looking to tell more calendar/everyday life sorts of stories.
INSPIRATION BY THE MONTH (DIGITAL STORIES BY THE MONTH)
Our Digital Stories By The Month™ kit is now called Inspiration By The Month™. With this subscription you receive access to the Inspiration By The Month™ classroom and the digital kit.
This kit is also available to physical Stories By The Month™ kit subscribers as an Add On each month.
ADD ON OPTIONS
Make sure you check out what's all available via your My Subscriptions page.
Add On options are available to all Story Kit™, Story Stamp™, and Stories By The Month™ physical 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 11th 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.
PIECES OF PLAY
The next chapter in our Pieces Of Life collection is now available: Pieces Of Play.
Physical kit subscribers can add this to their subscription box for no additional shipping charge. This is also available in our shop to anyone who wants to pick it up.
Ali will be using this notebook to document her Pieces Of Play the week of February 6th.
You can see a blog post that went live yesterday talking more about the project and looking at past chapters here.
