Everything came in retail plastic bags but we remove them for photography purposes.
The box is filled with lots of stuff!
Included in the box is an info card.
The theme for January 2019 is New Start, New Journal!
Everything in the box!
Cactus Pen. This novelty pen is in a form of cactus, minus the thorns!
It’s really cute and it writes well too!
Dear Lizzy Journal ($14.71) It’s a 52-week journal from Dear Lizzy’s Fine and Dandy Collection.
I got this gold polka dots design on teal.
The journal features 106 pre-designed pages, with 52 journal prompts.
The journal is ring-binder, which makes it easier to turn pages.
You can also make a weekly entry, it all depends on how you want to track or document your every day.
You can even list down all the lessons you have learned and get back to them for guidance!
Here’s a page dedicated to your best buddies!
There are other activities that you can do that the journal already provided, you just need to answer them.
Heidi Swapp Memorydex Tray. A Memorydex is used to keep track of everyday moments and special events using cards. This tray makes it easier to store those memorabilia.
The design is also beautiful. There are white and gold colored stripes on the tray. Inside the tray are gold colored partitions.
Heidi Swapp Memorydex Tabs ($8.63) To keep your Memorydex more organized, you can use these tabs.
The pack contains 12 dividers, 88 cards, and 10 stickers.
The cards came in several designs and patterns. Mostly they’re in black and white, but some have gold patterns on them.
Here’s how the tabs looked placed in the tray. The tabs are added embellishments to the whole Memorydex system.
With the tray, you can easily go through the tabs, you can just slide them all and find what you’re looking for.
It’s like a journal where you can easily flip the pages.
I also like how the tabs complemented with the tray, they look perfect together.
Project Life Becky Higgins Flat Magnets ($3.19) This pack contains 4 of inspirational flat magnets. It’s from the Inspire Edition designed by Vanessa Perry.
You can place them over the corner of a Project Life card, or use it for a photo to add an embellishment.
Aside from photos, they can also function as dividers for your planner or journal.
Paper Clips. Another item that can be used as beautiful embellishments on your Memorydex cards or journal are these golden ribbon paper clips!
I got 9 paper clips from this set. These can hold my papers in place for me.
Project Life Becky Higgins Rub-On Transfer Sheet ($6.50) These rub-on transferables also complement the Memorydex system.
The images and letters are gold colored, making them look fancy. I can also use it for other personal items I got, as they’re very easy to transfer.
We R Memory Keepers Puffy Stickers. Puffy stickers are fun! They aren’t your usual flat decals, but you can press them and feel how soft and kind of squishy they are!
The sticker set got some cute raccoons, a whale, some dialogue bubbles, and more! I can add this to my new journal or also in the Memorydex that I got. It’s also perfect for a boyish scrapbook layout!
The January box is fancy, as most of the items are gold colored, like the rub-on transfer sheets, paper clips, Memorydex tray, and the tabs! I love having my own journal so I can keep track and make accounts of my everyday activities, but the Memorydex looks like a great idea to try. The tabs are beautiful and the tray also keeps everything in place. This box definitely makes journalling more interesting and fun! I love this stationery subscription, all the items are usable, high-quality, and definitely crafty!
