July SSS Reveal


August is almost over, and I’m just getting around to showing you what was included in July’s SSS! Apparently moving to another country doesn’t magically happen if you don’t take matters into your own hands. Who knew?!


So here are the six brand new designs that were sent to all the SSS subscribers last month:

Six new designs that I’ve been using for my own July/August letters and that are now available in the Etsy shop! All the photos above are clickable and will take you to the individual listings. Let us know which ones are your favorites in the comments below!


And good news! If you’re tempted to purchase a few packs of stationery… You can currently get 10% off when you buy 2, and 30% off when you buy six, as well as get free shipping if you live in North America. More details can be found in the shop and in all the listings.


If you’re not an SSS subscriber yet and getting 6 new stationery designs in the mail for $10 sounds like a dream come true, head over to La Papierre and get a subscription! If you sign up before the end of the month, you’ll even receive the August bundle. Just a few days left, so hurry up! I hear the papers are pretty fun and colorful this time…

My name is Julie and I'm 35.
I live in Québec (close to Montréal) and I speak French.

I write letters, I love stationery and I have a handwriting fetish. I often eat sushi, still feel like I'm 16 and only wear skirts & dresses (with colorful tights when it's cold).

I'm happier with a mind full of ideas, a mailbox full of letters from my penpals, a shop full of stationery, a house full of cats and a day full of hugs.

Read my Top 10 Quirks here.

This is me with my wife,
Denise. We met through the
League of Extraordinary
Penpals and are living
happily ever after amongst
piles of cats and stationery.

Denise blogs here
from time to time and is
the one in charge of the
social media: Facebook,
Twitter and Pinterest.

She's 39 years old,
from the United States,
and in love with me, washi
tape & imperial rolls.
