Happy Paper Club Review

Today I want to share with you the newest stationery subscription box service from The Green Gables – Happy Paper Club!

Happy Paper Club subscribers receive a box of stationery, exclusive items and surprise extras, through the post once a month. The contents of each box are kept secret until it arrives. You’re guaranteed a Happy Post Day every month and the box is thin enough to fit through a standard letter box. So no red cards of doom here!


One of the things I love about The Green Gables, is not just their fab stationery box, but that they are a generous and thoughtful company too. They give 10% off their annual profits to charity and use recycled paper and cards for their products.

So what was in my taster box?


A set of eight Make Me Cards (perfect for recipes) and a inspirational mini print reminding us to Enjoy Your Life!


A beautiful illustrated notebook. I actually gifted this to a colleague at work who adores writing and dragonflies.


A cute A6 notepad which is already being used to jot down ideas in the studio.


A super sweet paper doll kit from Clara and Macy. I think I’m going to give this as a gift to my friend’s little girl.


Set of 6 postcards with positive phrases. You could make a cute wall art gallery with these if they were framed!


Boxes are released on the first of every month costing £12.95 per box. A monthly subscription is cheaper at just £10 per month and a 6 month sub is £60. As a bonus, club members receive a discount to use at The Green Gables stationery shop for the duration of their membership.

You can find out more about Happy Paper Club here – they deliver worldwide! I’d definitely recommend the boxes if you’re into snail mail and stationery.



*I paid a discounted bloggers price for the Happy Paper Club preview box. Read more about my disclosure policy here.

It’s Paper Dear: Stationery Subscription Box

I’m a stationery geek. A full-on paper loving weirdo.

Since I started blogging, I have discovered it’s not all that weird and there are people like me out there! People Like Zie who runs the stationery subscription box It’s Paper Dear.

Zie amazes me. She runs It’s Paper Dear, whilst juggling school as an illustration student amongst many other things. Even her recent house move didn’t stop any orders being delayed.

So, let me share with you this super cute box of stationery goodies, with supplies all hand selected by Zie herself. All for a very reasonable $20 (around £12.95 with a little extra for postage).

Super quirky greetings cards from Paper Sparrow. Not something I would usually choose, but that’s what I love about subscription boxes!

Gorgeous moleskin notebook and magnet from print maker and visual artist Jessica Gowling. The notebook is just beautifully made and designed. I can’t wait to use it.

Polka dots! Chevrons! Paper bags and scrapbooking card 🙂It's Paper Dear on claireabellemakes

These journalling cards are designed and printed by Zie herself and are probably my favourite thing in the box. This spotty box will definitely come in handy. There was also a clicky pencil, but unfortunately, mine hadn’t survived the trip from the US.

Cute envelopes, cards, buttons, sequins and washi tape. Such a cute little selection!

I was hugely impressed with the box. It came with a handwritten thank you card and was packaged in pink tissue. I’ll definitely be ordering again!

It’s Paper Dear is available in one month or three month subscriptions. As I’m saving for Christmas holidays this year, I’ll be buying a box as a treat every now and again.
