The January kits feature really fun mailboxes, puppies, kittens, and lots of postal puns. The club set (stamp and die) is called bigmailbox2stampand and there are lots of coordinating sets. So many options with these sets! These will coordinate nicely with previous releases too so that really gives you even more options. There were many other releases this month like background dies, fold-its, sentiment dies, and more so be sure to check it all out at the Stamps of Life website. You won’t want to miss them!
The monthly card kit is called: For You and, of course, it coordinates with all of the monthly sets. This kit contains enamel shapes in 3 colors, postal truck and envelope puffy stickers, ribbon, wooden envelopes, a sticker set that has birds and borders and sentiments, a fun patterned paper pad, cardstock, envelopes, a storage envelope and the “For You” die and shadow die in a really fun font. On top of all of that, this kit includes an A1 gatefold cardbase that has several flowers and shadow dies as well as a large “special delivery” die set with coordinating shadow dies!! Can you believe that! This really adds to the overall value of the kit. The cardstock in the kit matches everything and features the following colors: Sunshine, Strawberry, Kiwi, Blueberry, Pool, Grape, Midnight, Ocean and Powdered Sugar. All items can be found on the Stamps of Life website.
The new fold-it club features a bicycle for the month of January. Included in this kit are two fun stencils too. The first coordinates with bicycle scenery and has really cool grassy edges, and the second stencil is a full page of flowers that coordinate with the flowers in the bicycle basket. The fold-its won’t be available to the general public for several months so if you are not in the club …. join now!
