If you aren’t familiar with Studio Calico, they offer Stationery ($22.99 a month with 6-month commitment), Planner ($22.99 a month with 6-month commitment), Scrapbook ($37.99 a month with 6-month commitment), and Project Life ($27.99 a month with 6-month commitment) monthly subscriptions.

They recently had a first-box-for-a-dollar offer (if you signed up for a 6-month subscription), so I decided to go for the Stationery kit!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Because You’re Really Hard to Buy For Folded Card

Beautiful Person Flat Card

This folded card comes with a slot to hold a gift card – super useful! Here is the quote on the flat card:

You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest and most beautiful person I have every known – and even that is an understatement. – F. Scott Fitzgerald

Don’t Cry Because It’s Over Smile Because It Happened Folded Card

Happy Holidays Folded Card

Dr Seuss cards are always a win, and I love this double decker bus take on a holiday card!

Howdy Partner Postcard

Thankful Folded Card

I don’t use postcards from these subscriptions too often, but I can never have enough thank you cards. Plus I love the color combo of grey, pink and gold lettering.

I’ve Lost Count Folded Card

Sorry You’re Under the Weather Folded Card

On the inside of the cards: “Happy Birthday!” and “GET WELL SOON.”

The Ultimate List Sticky Notepad

Gold Foil Tag

The single tag feels a little weird (I would have expected a set), but the sticky notes are a perfect desk item!

Sticker Set and Envelope Washi Tape

This tape is interesting. Half of the pattern is blank for writing your return address:

Verdict: I can’t help but compare this box to Happy Mail for my verdict. I think they both are a good value for the price (with the discount this box cost me about $19). If you’re looking for more of a variety from card designers, I would recommend trying this subscription. (Or I’d recommend subscribing to both Studio Calico and Happy Mail if you are like me and love gettings lots of cards and paper goodies each month!)

What do you think of the Studio Calico Stationery Kit?
