Happy Mail x A Beautiful Mess

To know me is to know that I am stationery obsessed. I have always been and inevitably always will be. I'm also a bit obsessed with A Beautiful Mess at the moment. While I lack the motivation to do their DIY's, I love the inspiration their designs and projects bring to me. So when I heard about Happy Mail, I was intrigued and decided to sign up with their February kit...

Happy Mail is a subscription service and each month you receive a kit containing various cards, prints, stickers, stationery and more. Given that each kit is valued at $50 US and you pay around 20 NZD a month with shipping, this is really good value. Each item I received in the February kit was such good quality and I've already sent off a few of the cards to friends and family.

If you're an ABM fan you've probably already seen the contents of this month's kit but there was an art print, an assortment of cards, colourful stickers for decorating envelopes/sealing them, those cute word stickers above and a Taylor Swift-themed pencil. There was a lot of gold foil accents on show this month. You know how I feel about gold foil...I loved the range of cards included too. Those word stickers feature phrases from Mean Girls which made my day and they'd be great for cards or journals. I also spotted one of the cards I sent out on my friend's pinboard this weekend which made me smile. They're such beautifully designed cards that deserve to be shown off.

One thing I noticed was a lot of the cards are more postcard style and only have one side to write on. I don't know if this is a particularly American thing but I like cards that open up. It's not a major by any means, I'm just fussy with stationery. I also like having space to write on because I tend to write a lot in cards.

So all in all, I was really impressed with the February Happy Mail kit. I'm thinking about doing a post about the March kit as well, so let me know if you're interested in seeing that.
