Over the last several months I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking when the 2014 Calendar and Note Pad Tins and the refills will be back.  We are excited to announce that we are running a pre-order from August 9/13 – August 23/13.

Please note that we have a free video tutorial on how to create the tins shown above,  a pdf handout and download of the “Just a Note” Labels on Andrea’s blog which you can access HERE.  She is also offering a give-away of the two finished tins shown above (two winners will be chosen and each will receive on of the tins).  The winners will be announced on Monday, August 26th on Andrea’s blog.

The calendar that you see on the inside front cover of the tin (also shown below) was custom-made so that it perfectly fit the inside of the tin. The calendars are 4 7/8″ x 4 7/8″. The font used for the months and the date match the font used for the “just a note” on the front of the tin.


As you can see from the picture of the tin at the beginning of this post, and the picture below, I also had some note-pads custom designed to fit inside the tin. The notepads are 3 3/4″ x 4 3/4″. There’s 50 sheets on the notepad and the lines are black so they match with any color scheme.


As we did last year, we offering this in several options.  Please note that these are ALL pre-orders. Orders will start to ship the week of September 9, 2013, in the order in which they were received. Because everything is custom-designed and manufactured, I don’t want to order too many and end up with hoards left over, or too little, and then run out. So make sure you have your order in by Friday August 23, 2013.

There is a lot of info in this post, so please be sure you read it all!

One of the things I do have to give you a heads up about is shipping. As we are located in Canada, the most “cost-effective” option for shipping is Canada Post. I use that term loosely because it’s still not cheap. The only methods of shipping we offer are small packet air (which I don’t really recommend because it is not trackable) and expedited – which is trackable, and the fastest method. We used to offer a small packet surface option, but ran into too many problems with it being waaaaaaay too slow (as in at least 4 weeks to the US), and not trackable.

I do want to assure you that we only charge you what we are charged. We do not mark up shipping. Because we are a small company with small volumes of shipping we don’t qualify for some of those great shipping volume discounts that bigger stores get. If perchance you are overcharged (which we will only know when we start shipping the packages out), we will reimburse you the difference. Shipping in Canada is based on weight and package size. Because of the weight in particular, for most of you, shipping is probably going to start at about $12 – $15. What I have found though is that the more you get, the better the deal. So if you only want one of’s I would recommend ordering as a group (with a friend or a few friends). So please be prepared.

So, here’s what we have:

Calendar Bundle Pre-order – $7.50 + shipping (each bundle has 5 calendars) 




Note Pad Bundle Pre-order – $7.50 + shipping (each bundle has 5 note pads)




Bundle of Hinged CD Tins Pre-order – $25.00 + shipping (each bundle includes five 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ tins)




2014 Calendar and Note Pad Tin Kits Pre-Order – $17.95 per kit + shipping  (These kits includes a pdf handout as well all the supplies needed to make the project shown in the picture below, other than adhesive.  You will need to supply red liner tape, double sided adhesive and dimensional foam.  Color of the pencil/pen in your kit will vary.




Once again, just a reminder, these are ALL pre-orders.  The orders will start to ship the week of September 9, 2013, in the order in which they were received.

Have a great weekend!

    1. The store that we had ordered these from in the past is no longer in business. TThey are the ones with the templates for the calendar and note pads so unfortunately we won’t be able to offer the calendars and note pads. Sorry for the inconvenience.
