Paper Goose Review August 2015 – Scrapbooking Subscription Box
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I received this box for review.
Paper Goose is a scrapbooking subscription box that gives you all the materials to create 4-5 complete pages. Boxes are $19.99/month and include paper, embellishments, letter stickers, and more. Paper Goose also includes inspiration on their social media accounts. Before finding subscription boxes, I was a serious scrapbooker. My office is still set up as a scrapbooking room and I am waiting to be caught up with boxes to finish my 3 year old's baby book (eek). I was thrilled to review Paper Goose and see what products would be included.
What's in the box? “You can expect to see 2-4 pieces of patterned paper, 2-3 pieces of colored cardstock, alphabet stickers or titles, chipboard or sheets of stickers, and maybe a stamp or some washi tape! The value will always be more than the subscription price, so you don't have to worry about not getting a great deal!”

Paper Goose ships in a 12 x 12 box, perfect for holding scrapbooking supplies. You can also re-purpose this box and store your completed pages, before sticking them in albums.
Project Life 3 x 4 Cards I am not sure the series, but I was excited to see Project Life products in the box. If you have never heard of Project Life, it is an EASY system of memory keeping by Becky Higgins. You use a combination of 3 x 4 cards (usually for journaling) and 4 x 6 cards, along with photos, for a complete page. You can do many memory pages this way, in half the time as traditional scrapbooking. If you prefer traditional scrapbooking, these can be incorporated into 12 x 12 pages.
Project Life 4 x 6 Cards: This coordinate with the 3 x 4 cards above. You can use one of this cards to be a place holder in a page, or as a pretty embellishment
Heidi Swapp Project Life Photo Flipbook This little flipbook is great for including multiple pictures on a single page, or you can use this with the Project Life system.
Accent Frames: These frames are stickers with adhesive already attached! These are great for blocking titles or framing a section of a photo. If you use Project Life, these can work with 4 x 6 photo slots too.
Puffy Alphabet Stickers: I love white letter stickers and uses to incorporate them into my pages often.
Doodlebug Design Inc Teensy Type: These little letter stickers are great for labeling photos are for little phrases on your page.
Heidi Swapp Favorite Things Ephemera Die-Cut Paper Pack $10.25 This pack sells on Amazon for 1/2 the cost of the box! This pack is filled with brightly colored flowers, letter, punctuation, quotes and so much more.
This is a look at some of the different kinds of embellishments. For clear items, use an acid free adhesive for easy application.
Patterned Paper + Cardstock: 6 sheets of patterned paper and cardstock was included in the box. This is the foundation of 12 x 12 scrapbooking and I liked how the papers coordinated with one another. If you don't scrapbook 12 x 12, you can cut this down for Project Life, card making, or even planners.
Final Thought: This was a wonderful subscription box for paper crafters. I didn't do a full retail price breakdown, but the price of the ephemera is half the cost of the box, just with that one item. I love that all the paper, stickers and embellishments coordinated. It's easy to spend serious money on scrapbooking supplies, and Paper Goose includes a nice amount of supplies, for a low cost. A monthly scrapbooking kit from Paper Goose would be a great way to stay motivated on your memory keeping. Whether you traditional scrapbook, use Project Life, make cards, or just love paper crafting, Paper Goose is a great choice. You can check them out at this link!
