My #PaperHaul Review

I like to write reviews. I like sharing the cool and fun products and businesses that I find. Today is absolutely one of those days!

Not long ago I ended my series of Stitch Fix reviews (you can see my farewell here) because I became dissatisfied with the product. I set out on a search for a monthly subscription box to take it’s place, preferably a foodie or crafty one. I hunted and searched and read all sorts of reviews before settling on the Crafty Creatives #PaperHaul based out of the UK.

It was perfect. It was within my budget even with the international shipping charge (Β£10 plus shipping). It had the potential to contain washi and stickers and cards. It was NEW.

At the time I discovered Crafty Creatives, #PaperHaul had just been launched so I ordered mine ASAP. Then I waited. And waited. And waited. Have I mentioned that I am not terribly patient. The internet has spoiled me and I wanted instant gratification. LOL

Finally I got my shipping notice. I figured that it would be a good week + before I got my package, but it only took a few days! Squeeeee!

First up, small notecards with envelopes. Great quality and so adorable. I need to figure out who to send these to…I’m thinking my dad πŸ˜‰

Next were some adorable gift tags. I love the colors and hairstyles. The whole box really has a super fun 60s-70s feel to it.

WASHI!! Need I say more? Okay, I will. This picture does this washi no justice. It is the perfect shade of orange and I cannot wait to use it in my planner…probably in March because it is very ginger!

Next was a few bigger stickers. I love that these have speech bubbles! I think they will be great to use for some gifts that I want to send to some animal lovers I know!

POSTCARDS!!

How beautiful is this ginger princess card? I can’t think of any little girls to send this to, but it will make a great birthday card. Or maybe I will frame it and hang it up in my new office! YES! Actually, I think I will frame the next card too.

How freaking amazing is this card?!?!?!Β PaperHaul 9My #PaperHaul Review - Crunchy, Crafty, and Highly Caffeinated - www.crunchycrafty.com

 

 

Next up was a sheet of circle fox stickers. Every single fox is different! I love that. I have NO CLUE what to do with these, but you can bet your booty it is going to be awesome.My #PaperHaul Review - Crunchy, Crafty, and Highly Caffeinated - www.crunchycrafty.com

 

Last up are two double sided crafting papers. All four sides are different and I hate to part with any of them. I saw that someone else used these to make their own envelopes which I might have to try!

My #PaperHaul Review - Crunchy, Crafty, and Highly Caffeinated - www.crunchycrafty.comSo there is a quick review of my first #PaperHaul. I am already so excited for my next box of goodies! This might sound dumb, but I think the funnest part of this box for me is that it is international. I always tend to shop very American by going to Target, Michael’s, and some local crafting stores, but this time I knew that it would be nothing I had seen before. All of the cards are made specifically for #PaperHaul and I love supporting that type of business.

But Wait, There’s More!

They support charity! With every #PaperHaul that is bought they make a monetary donation to Post Pals. This is an amazing organization that arranges for mail to be sent to sick children to brighten their day. This might be a great thing for my new found love of stamping greeting cards.Β Please check them out and, if you can, send a card…and maybe some stickers. What kid doesn’t like stickers?

The Verdict

I cannot wait for my next box! This is actually SO MUCH BETTER than my Stitch Fix!

What do you think? Is this something you could see yourself getting, or do you have another crafty box you love?

    Omg I love everything in this box! Its all so cute and stylish. We are going to have to see that washi collection of yours soon!

    • mrsdmeeks

      haha! My washi collection is getting quite impressive! πŸ˜‰ I am giddy with excitement for my February box to get here and it will be a few weeks still!

  2. Lauren

    Such cute stuff! And I love that it’s not anything you’ll find in the stores here.
    I’ve made envelopes before and they’re really cute. I think that would be a great way to use that paper!

    • mrsdmeeks

      The stuff is so cute, and the quality is amazing! I can’t wait to try making my own envelopes!

  3. Natalina

    I love all the cute stuff, I need a sewing box! If I take on one more hobby I’ll need to add on to my house just to store it all.

    • mrsdmeeks

      Hahahahaha! I know the feeling! I just can’t stop trying new things! There is just something about papercrafting that I adore.

    • mrsdmeeks

      The crafty is fun, yes, but I love that it included so many greeting and post cards!! Sending and receiving “happy mail” is wonderful! Just making someone’s day like that makes me happy!

  4. Kristen

    So I totally want this now! But wait – how do you have time to send all this out?!

    • mrsdmeeks

      hahaha!! I like to randomly send happy mail to people. It only takes 2 seconds to write a hello and pop it in the mailbox πŸ™‚ It also helps when you have a pile of cards in your office and stamps in your planner πŸ˜‰

  5. Rach

    Love it! Definitely a Weasley!
    It’s nice to know I’m not the only one with a paper obsession.

    • mrsdmeeks
