Studio Calico Savannah Planner Kit | February 2016
One of my favorite days of the month is the day my Studio Calico Planner Kit comes in the mail. If you're not familiar with the kits, they're basically a monthly box-subscription (but they come in a little reusable pouch) similar to the other box subscriptions out there - think NatureBox, Birchbox, etc. Each pouch is filled with goodies to organize or decorate your planner. Studio Calico offers a few different subscriptions - planner, documenter, scrapbook, and stationary - so if you're not big on the planning thing but love creative documenting, they've still got you covered! I thought it would be fun to start a little review/look into the kits each month to share what was in them, what add-ons I purchased, etc. Similar to an unboxing!

In addition to the contents of the kit, there is usually a customization option. This month, we were given the option to choose between the two art prints listed above (under customization). If you don't login and choose between the two, they will randomly select one for you. I was distracted this month and didn't have time to do the customization part, so I was sent one of the options randomly. Sometimes that can be fun!

In addition to the kit contents, you have the option to add-on other items at a discounted price each month, or add-on a few extras of items that are in this kit or have been in previous kits. You only have a day or two to choose these add-ons before they go back up to full price! This month, I added more of the to-do flag stickers because I knew I would be using them often, as well as some of the SC mini heart stickers that I basically use everywhere! I also picked up another sheet of my beloved vellum washi stickers that I just can't get enough of, a pack of journal cards, an Amy Tangerine roller stamp, a few sheets of paper, and a pack of monthly dividers (last three not shown because I've already started using them. Oops! :D).
If you order anything else from the site between the kit preview date and ship date, you get free shipping and they just toss everything in the box with your kit. Such a steal! I bought quite a bit more this month than I usually do. It was my birthday month, and I decided to treat myself to a few extra bits that I knew I would put to good use!
This month, there was also a promotion going on for a free Hello Forever Planner with a new planner kit subscription (this deal is still going on, so hurry and take advantage!). Since I just signed up for the kit last month, Studio Calico graciously applied this promo to my account. - Be sure to take a look at the full review (with lots of photos) I shared last week if you're thinking about picking one up!
Do you subscribe to a monthly documenter kit or to any of the Studio Calico kits? How are you liking them? Are there any I have to check out?
