July is a BIG month here at PbP. It’s our one year anniversary on July 20th!!! One. Whole. Year. I can hardly believe it.
We have lots of celebration plans in the works AND we gon’ party like it’s yo birthday! There are special email subscriber coupons – HALF OFF any single purchase collection and FREE SHIPPING on monthly, mini or gift subscriptions. Make sure you sign up for the newsletter to get them!
What We’ll Be Debuting
- Special themed collections (ie: thank you, encouragement, sympathy, birthdays, etc.) after July 4th.
- A quarterly stationery box subscription towards the end of July!
Then later in the year, we’ll roll out our Preferred Partner Program & PbP paper products.
To start off the celebration, we have an extra special one year anniversary collection as our way of saying thank you for being a part of PbP, supporting my dream of inspiring #fierceloyalty, sending cards and spreading love!
It’s bigger than ever and amazing. I wanted this collection to be fun, colorful and in true PbP fashion, chock full of friendship cards!
The July Curated Collection
First is this card by E. Frances Paper. The card is hand painted watercolor with gold foil. Remember how I said bold, bright colors and pink and gold were huge trends at the National Stationery Show? Well this card is the epitome of vibrant and colorful. I think the watercolor wash is simple yet beautiful.
This is just a modern and updated version of the best friends necklaces that were popular when I was growing up. Which one of your lucky babes will get the other half of your pin? I can see young me doing the shoot-the-duck at the local skating rink with Def Leppard and Guns & Roses blasting as if it was yesterday.
This metallic ink screen printed card (which means that each card is a one of a kind original and that the inks will never fade) by The Paper Cub gets a big gold star from me. You could let the recipient know that it’s an original piece of art and that it would look great framed.
It wouldn’t be a celebration collection without a Cyndi Lauper reference and a birthday card. I’m definitely feeling the 80’s vibe in this month’s collection. This card from The Social Type is so cheerful.
Since there was only one best babes pin to send, I wanted you to have another card for your other close babes. This one from Worthwhile Paper does the trick.
Lastly, this card from Yellow Grass Greetings is funny. I really enjoy sarcasm and dry humor. I know that’s not everyone’s jam, but a little snark, when done right, brings a smile to my face as much as the encouraging and “nice” cards.
I also believe that everyone knows at least one person who appreciates snark/sarcasm. Yellow Grass’s tag line is: cards for people who like people, but only kind of. That got my attention immediately. Though when Jill, the founder, got in touch with me, she was anything but snarky (but don’t tell her that).
So this is the big one year anniversary collection! To make sure you don’t miss out, get your bi-monthly subscription here. We offer mini-subscriptions too. If you have commitment issues, then you can try out any collection as a single purchase. AND our single purchases and gift-subscriptions are fabulous for the stationery lover in your life.
