September Card Kit of the Month REVEAL "You're Amazing"

Hello there gorgeous!  When you think of September, what comes to your mind?   September always reminds me of back to school. It was my favorite time of year as a kid!  Coming back from summer break to see my friends, having a fresh start with clean school supplies, new markers, a blank slate to fill and most definitely, being one whole year ahead in class!  Boy oh boy, I was an eager beaver about school! Before classes even started, I would wait on the school steps in August along with swarms of other kids eager to see our new teachers' names and who was going to be in our class that year.  I would school shop with my mom and sister picking out the coolest "trapper keepers" we could find.  Clean juicy markers... oh yes!  Colorful new notebooks, rulers, and stickers to jazz up my blank folders kept me pumped about this time of year.  Quite honestly, I don't think I ever, ever slept at all the night before my first day back to school.  My mind raced with excitement and adrenaline.  What do you remember about those days?

 School was definitely the inspiration for this "You're Amazing" card kit!  The fun and bright paper colors, ruler, twine, mini chalkboard, stamps with encouraging phrases, and large variety of stickers are all accentuated with a stylish gift box by "Branch + Cotton".  "something little just cause...." is written on the front of the gift pouch and would make a delightful surprise to put in your child's lunch or backpack on the first day of school.  Teachers would love it as well.  To top it off, Kristina Werner designed a beautiful stamp set full of encouragement. "Shoot for the Stars!"  It's perfect for more than back to school!

We will begin shipping kits to Subscribers next week.  Right now assembly is in full force!  Be inspired by 2 of the projects Kristina created using the kit:

Would you like to share your work with us?

Stay tuned!  We have a huge surprise announcement coming this week for Junior Stampers!

    I remember when it was time to go back to school, I always cried in the bathtub the night before. I wanted to continue playing and didn't want to have to go back to school. My fondest memories of school were the ones I made with my kids in their school.
