New Subscription: Pipsticks!

I had to sadly say goodbye to Birchbox here, however that allowed me to look around at other subscription boxes (since I enjoy getting things in the mail, and what better way then having a monthly subscription box every month filled with things that you love?!? :)) And since we all know that I love Planners and Journals, I decided to look for a subscription that would support my hobby...and after searching for a bit I decided not to go with a box per se, but more of a cute, adorable envelope filled with STICKERS and other goodies! I decided to do that since I can then use the stickers for not only my planners and journals but for other things as well...if I so wanted to. :)

Pipsticks is "a company founded on the idea that little things can make a big difference....[they] are IN LOVE with stickers and understand their power to make you smile." They "connect and collaborate with thousands of amazing sticker lovers all over the world...[their] stickers are selected by designers and sourced from around the world." They do an amazing job at making sure that you will get a HUGE variety of stickers each month. You will also get an pre-stamped postcard to decorate and send out and other "paper goodies" in your awesome envelope packet. And it's sent like a regular letter with a cute stamp on it!

There are four different packages that you can choose from. There are two packages for kids and two for adults. For kids, there is the "Kid's Club Classic" for $14.95/month which will get you 15+ sheets of stickers, 1 postcard, and 4 sheets of craft paper. And the "Kid's Club Petite" for $9.95/month and that comes with 7+ sheets of stickers and 2 sheets of craft paper. For the adults, the "Pro Club Classic" for $14.95 will get you 15+ sheets of stickers, 1 postcard, and 1 quote card and the "Pro Club Petite" for $9.95 will get your 7+ sheets of stickers and 1 mini quote card. Shipping is free within the US, but there is an additional $3/month for international subscribers.

I subscribed to the Pro Club Classic and I just got my first one in the mail today when I got home from work! And I am excited show you and review what I got!


This is what I found waiting for me when I got home, and I have to say that I was super excited to open it!


A velum envelope came inside a see-through plastic envelope. I like that. The fonts they are super cute and the print/pattern on the velum envelope is super cute as well!


Without really looking I took out everything from the envelope and at this point, I am bursting with excitement to look at each and everything! :)


This printed paper is the first thing that caught my attention. Pink and yellow, one of my favorite combinations of colors and hearts! Who doesn't love hearts?!



This subscription comes with a monthly newsletter filled with a Pipstick's surveys, activities, and welcome. I think this whole pack is the welcome pack (different from what other subscribers will get this month), so I am guessing that this is the welcome newsletter. I love the layout of the newsletter, the different colors and how fun she makes it!


Although I do love a lot of color, I love the design and simplicity of this postcard! I know exactly who I am going to send it to!


On the back of the postcard it looks like a promo code for the person I send this to. I love how that it is pre-stamped and all I have to do is write the address and send it off! I was just talking to my cousin and how she was telling me that she loves planners and stickers like me and so I think that is who I am going to send this postcard to! :)


Included in my envelope of awesomeness is this simple, black & white quote card. It is on sturdy card stock paper and look at the back!


...a fun print! :) At first glance it looks like a bunch of (eeeeeek!!!!) spiders...but lets just say it's a bunch of dandelions in in an abstract aerial shot!

And now to the stickers!!!! :)


I love glitter. I love shiny. And I adore these glittery, shiny, sticker flags! They are small enough to use them in my planner and they are so fun!


I also have a love of Popsicle (too bad I didn't get this packet in July since it would have been PERFECT for my July summer theme in my planner...but NO COMPLAINTS! I live in Hawai'i, I can eat Popsicles year round! :))...The glittery rainbow and the fun bumblebees are cute too!


The Wedding Story sticker collection...now, that is too adorable!! :)


 

Super cute stickers that I know will make my planner/journals really look fun!




I really love and adore this big washi tape-like sticker thingy! The print is something absolutely love! And it's gold and shiny!! You can either use it it as a big piece or cut it up and use it as smaller strips/pieces.

Oh my goodness, the nesting dolls are the cutest! And I love the see-through window stickers! That is just too cute! Ahhh! Cuteness overload!


Definitely can use these stickers in my planner! :)

And lastly, I love this idea!




In the newsletter they explained that they will be giving a ticket in your packet and with next month's delivery, they will post the winning ticket for more fun prizes!

One thing that I love about this subscription, I feel as if they are NOT stingy with what they like to share with others. There are plenty different opportunities to get free stickers and prizes through them! I did sign up to receive their enewsletter and in there they also have a lot of participation surveys and they really do make you feel like you are a part of something fun and "club-like" when you sign up. They make you feel like they do care about their subscribers and that they really do appreciate you and everything. I like that.

I am glad that I found this monthly subscription...and I can't wait until next month, that's for sure! If you want to be part of Pipsticks club, I urge you to check them out and see for yourself how much you are going to love this place!

Oh, and I don't know for how long this promo will last, but if you sign up now and use the code PICNICTIME you will save 10% on your first month's subscription!  So, what are you waiting for!? Go to Pipsticks now and join me in this awesome sticker/paper goodies fun! :)
