I know February is almost over but thanks to oversea shipping delivery times I just got my first Paper Camellia Everyday Life kit (Project Life style kit) and I couldn’t be more excited.
I signed up for a subscription at mid January after checking videos and details on every possible kit option that I found. It’s really hard cause international shipping really increases the cost and I wanted to make sure the kits will be as packed as possible.
I used a referral so the items in the photos are not just from the Everyday Life kit but also from the goodie bag I got with it.
Opening the box there was a lovely handwritten message from Ria who was extremely helpful while I was spamming her with questions regarding the kit.
I was so happy when I saw she included the extra wood veneer pieces in my goodie bag cause I really regretted not buying them at the release and they got sold out really quick.
Sadly when I took them out I found that the “Beautiful” piece was actually broken. I was really surprised as they were packaged so nicely but oh well, I just grabbed some glue and put it back together. These wood veneer pieces are actually my very first ones of the size and I found them way less fragile than I expected.
Another small thing that made me sad was that I really got unlucky with the paper clips of the February kit. We are supposed to get 5 random ones from an Amy Tangerine collection. If I’m not mistaken there are only 6 different designs and the one I wanted the most was the only one I didn’t actually get (the camera one).
The main collection of the kit is Love Notes by WRMK and omg! it’s totally my style. I fell in love instantly. I also really love kits that include 6×6 paper.
From what I’ve seen so far in the past kits, every month they include cards from two different collections which is fantastic. Also the amount of cards you get is more than the usual. It’s nice to get exclusive designs like Studio Calico or Gossamer Blue (I think their designs are fantastic) but you can’t really fill many spreads with the cards of their initial kits.
I don’t know if Ria is putting the kits together on her own, but whoever does, has really good taste and picks really beautiful collections. If you are considering subscribing to Paper Camellia I would totally recommend it. Maybe you can even use me as a referral and we may get something extra in our kits (as far as I know they don’t officially have a referral system but it never hurts to try).
