Hello October! This brings my one little slip when I must start talking about Christmas before November – this week is the time to pre-order if you’d like a 2018 Christmas in a Box kit or any of the stamps! Full kits, including papers, embellishments, and stamps, can be posted from the UK or USA, or the stamps are available separately if you prefer to use your own Christmas stash with just a little something new. Pre-orders end this Sunday, the 14th of October.
Shall we look at the stamps first? This is the word sheet…
…and this is the number sheet. These are 4×6 inch stamp sets and are both included in the full Christmas in a Box kit. They can also be purchased as a set without the kit, if you prefer.
Or you can opt for the full Christmas in a Box kit!
Here’s more of what you’ll find packed into Christmas in a Box: lots of 12×12 paper, with a range of lush greens balanced by white-background prints, plenty of red, with navy, gold, and a little splash of the rainbow. Plus Thickers in red and gold (in a font that works well on small projects too), vellum, washi tape, flat and puffy stickers, and of course the custom stamps. New for this year is a subtle writing pad to give you plenty of options when including stories short and long or creating your own titles. Everything is chosen for a mix of specifically Christmas things alongside patterns that can be used year-round for the everyday. This way you can incorporate your leftover supplies into your stash in January without building up year after year of supplies you only use at Christmas.
Christmas in a Box is the kit I use to make my Christmas journal, and if you’re following along with the Journal your Christmas class, you’ll see the kit in action every day in the class videos. (You can join Journal your Christmas any time of the year! Find all the details about available classes here.)
Kits ship from the UK and the US, so if you are in the US, your kit will ship from the US and and if you’re in the UK, your kit will ship from the UK! If you live somewhere else, we will ship your box from the location that is most affordable, and additional shipping will be billed at the cost from the postal service. From the UK, this about £10 for Europe and £15 beyond Europe for the full kit, to give you an idea.
When you pre-order, you pay a deposit of half your kit price now and the remaining half when your kit is boxed and ready to ship. For UK addresses, that’s £20 now for a total kit price of £40. For US addresses, that’s $25 now, for a total kit price of $50. Those prices include shipping. If you would prefer to pay your full balance now, that’s fine of course! (This is great if you are travelling or busy at the start of November, when the balance invoices will be sent!) Any boxes paid in full will ship immediately when everything has arrived.
If you have plenty of Christmas stash and would just like this year’s stamps, that’s available too. The set of two sheets – words and numbers – is $24 or £18, which includes postage anywhere in the world. Again, choose if you want to pay the full balance and they will ship automatically or pay the deposit and I’ll invoice you for the remaining half before they make their way to you. All stamps ship from here in London, but they travel pretty quickly by airmail.
Pre-Orders have now closed. Thank you! A very limited supply of kits and stamps will be available without placing a deposit, but those numbers are truly very few. If you would like to reserve a kit with no worry, pre-ordering is your friend.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me and I’ll help in any way I can.
Thanks so much, and I promise you can now go right back to autumn and not think more about Christmas until at least November!
