Aren’t these the cutest? Love these three gold paper clips. They’re classy and fun all rolled into one! An aesthetically pleasing way to stay organized.
Custom Journal Cards

We received two small journal cards. We are very fond of the camera one! Great to jot notes or use as gift tags. We think journal cards are probably one of the most versatile paper craft items there are.

“Oh Yes” Die Cut

Particularly proud of an accomplishment? Want to commemorate a fun event properly? These “Oh Yes” die cuts are perfect ways to do either!
Gray Packing Tag
Love this simple tag in one of our favorite colors! Perfect as a gift tag or even for labeling!
becky higgins clear overlay
We received a total of 3 Becky Higgins Clear Overlays to use in our scrapbooking. The first is a 4×6 that says “Love It”. Perfect for those special pictures.
This “Choose Joy” overlay is probably our favorite, just because of the upbeat message
The third of the set is another 4×6 that says “My Kind of Day” – super sweet
Amy Tangerine Postcards
There were also two Amy Tangerine Postcards that are just perfect. The first says, “Just Lovely” and would make an excellent congratulatory note!

The second says, “Just Be Cool” and is super cool! Very hip and fun!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. Creative Mercantile is an awesome mix of items that work for many different interests. From planner addicts to scrapbookers and many others this is an awesome subscription for you. The presentation is very cute, we love the glassine bags! The quality is great – we love each item that we received and feel like they are all well made. Finally, the curation is great! We feel like all the elements came together to make this a perfect box for summer and summer getaways! 
As far as box economy the Creative Mercantile Subscription costs $24.95 each month and while couldn’t find many of the prices for the items included we definitely feel like this subscription box is worth the price.
And remember use code AGBFF for 15% OFF your first 3 months!
