This month we are focusing on stories related to the theme of Now.
Documenting what's happening in real time is one of my favorite ways to tell the story of my life. Themes like currently, around here, and right now invite us to look around and capture the lives we are living in the moment vs. waiting for a future time when we try to remember (we all now how hard that can be). This month we are coming together to tell some stories of own personal now.
Initial story ideas for this theme include:
- Make a list of what's happening in your life right now. A simple list is a great way to capture little bits of what's real for you in this season.
- Right now what are you loving/listening/watching/eating/reading/going? Using those -ing words is a great entry point into capturing life right now.
- Tell the story of now by contrasting what's easy and what's hard.
The Story Kit™ includes:

STORIES BY THE 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.

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
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.
ALPHAS ARE AWESOME
This stamp set is available to subscribers to add to their box during the Add On period and also offered in the shop for anyone else!
I'm super excited about these as alphas are my favorite kind of stamps!
