February 2014 {I Heart You} "I love you" box

Hoooray Hooray it's my absolute favourite day, the day I get to reveal what was in our February "I love you" box. Why do I love this day so much? Well, after all the planning, designing, printing, sewing, production & packaging that goes into this box of goodness I can't wait to share with the world the unique set of Elephantshoe items that only our subscribers get to receive first. They are also the items that I personally curate and think are AWESOME.

With this month being the month of LOVE, it was the perfect opportunity to place my all time dearest stamp in the boxes. I've been waiting months and months to find the right time to include it. This stamp is made from an imported maple wood, it is laser engraved on the top and only a select few people now have it. (Those that subscribed to our Feb box). The heart shape makes it useful for any occasion, be it Valentines, Mothers Day, Birthdays, Get Well Soon or just a simple "I'm thinking of you". Stamp cards, tags, bags or even make your own wrapping paper. 

This little heart stamp gem was packaged in a handmade, handsewn canvas bag that you can use to store your nail polishes, hairbands, hairpins or any other kind of small item in. I have mine filled with jewelry which is really handy for traveling. 

Although the stamp was the main feature in this months "I love you" box we included a few extra Valentines treats :

  • 1 x Black Brilliance Fast-Drying Ink Pad (so that everyone could get stamping right away)
  • 1.2m fabric hearts and crosses ribbon
  • 5 x Oversized Kraft Luggage Tags (these tags were made to fit the size of the stamp)
  • 3 x Manilla Luggage Tags (with a variety of stamped messages, e.g Sealed with a Kiss; Love; Love is)

Decembers {Santa's wrapping} "I Love You" Box

WOW, December has come and gone and we are already in our second week of January. I'm just crossing fingers and toes that 2014 doesn't fly by in the same way that 2013 did. There are many exciting things we have planned for the year ahead but before we start celebrating those I wanted to share the contents of our December "I Love you" box with you. Take a little look here

We had so many fun and festive  washi tapes  in store this year, each box had one design included - from gold chevron, grey stripes, red snowflakes to red spots, stripes and stars. They were awesome and so useful when it came to attaching your Christmas cards & tags and wrapping up your parcels in a unique way.

Our  Kraft Christmas cards  were hand screen printed here at the Elephantshoe Studio and they were accompanied with an envelope. We included a variety of envelope styles e.g grey or red large spots printed on the outside of the envelope, red or grey striped printed as a liner on the inside of the envelope.

Looking back on the festive season one of our favorite shoots was our Christmas one. It was wonderful to gather all the products and styling goodies to give the shoot a holly jolly charm. A big thank you to our 2013 intern Kathleen for helping us with all the Christmas preparation and of course to Andre from Blackframe photography. We are blessed to work with such talented and all round GREAT people. 

Don't miss out on our January "I love you" boxes - these are going out to our lovely subscribers on the 15th of January instead of the usual beginning of the month. We will return to delivery in the fist week of the month when we send out the February box. 

Thank you everyone for your "I love you" box orders.

x Love Sam
