Welcome to It's Paper, Dear! I'm excited to share this new adventure with you!
----A little background info----
As a child, I was always excited for back to school time, if only because of the beautiful pens and pencils, the smell of new books, and the crisp feel of notebook paper. Even now, I often find myself wandering into paper stores and office stores just to grab a new pen or a new journal. (And my friends can attest that they've had to drag me out by my hair more than once, heh.)
But I’m not alone. I’ve discovered quite a few people who are just as excited about paper goods as I am, and possibly even more so. Other people who get giddy over paper bits & pretty pens. So with that in mind, I’ve decided to launch a monthly subscription box all about paper goods in order to share our obsession and our passion. Because honestly, what could be better than “back to school” coming once a month?
"It's Paper, Dear." ---What?
This is an idea that my mother and I came up with not too long ago. (It was honestly close to 65/35, on her part. Thanks, Mom!) And I'm so excited to finally get it going. And as for the name: I'm sure many can relate, but I am often asked "What is that?//Why do you need that?" And every time I've explained this to those wonderful people who support me, but don't quite understand, they just smile and nod their heads, thinking I'm nuts, I'm sure. And I wanted to play on that. So to anyone who receives a box and is asked something along the same lines, they can answer in kind: "It's Paper, Dear."
And while most of the box will change month to month, there will be some repeating monthly features: a pretty journal for you to doodle, write, and/or collage in. A lovely pen or pencil for you to play in your new journal with, and pretty tapes and office goodies.
But let's not forget the paper...
Everything from note cards to recipe cards, to book marks to book plates. From templates to create the loveliest envelopes on the planet, to DIY paper projects. From stickers and stamps to labels and collage sheets. From scrapbooking and smashbooking supplies to stationery to write darling letters. And it keeps going.
(Are you getting excited yet?)
Which brings us to how you can get your hands on one of these little boxes of paper goodies. Currently, there are two subscription options: 1 month & 3 months & both options can be found in the etsy shop for immediate purchase.
The box is shipped out the second week of the month!
"I get what kinds of things are going to be in it, but I want to know what it's going to look like."
Above is a little hint at some of what's coming in July's box. Now, I want to clarify. Each box is a little different. All boxes have the same ingredients, but maybe one box has red tape and another has blue. It's Paper Dear is a box filled with things I've found, collected and made, as well as donations/gifts. It's not a cookie-cutting factory, it's a quirky, fun, hand-crafted treasure box. :]
"What kinds of papers are going to be in the box?"
Everything from vintage and antique papers, to modern scrapbooking/smashbooking papers. To things made of paper that I'm sure you're going to love!
"Do you ship internationally?"
I've gotten this one more than any other, and I'm sorry for any confusion on this matter. I should have stated this from the start, heh. Yes, I am able to ship to any country of your choosing! If you live outside the USA, please just send me an email or message letting me know which country & which package (1 or 3 months) you'd like. That way, I can calculate accurate shipping.
