asking for trouble

Trouble Club July Rewards

If you need more reasons to join my Trouble Club on Patreon, here’s what everyone who signs up before the end of the month will be getting. I’ve tried to make it extra good value for the first month as it will be much more fun for everyone when there’s a bunch of people to chat to.

Trouble Club Patreon

There’s also other content shared throughout the month including weekly updates (with sneak peeks, what I’m into and links), Q&A, blog post previews, seconds/sample sale and maybe a giveaway if enough people join. Most of this will be exclusive to the Trouble Club so if you would pay $1 a month to read my blog, maybe you should check it out.

I’m not doing this for the money but because I want to share things with a small group of people I get to know, instead of seeing a stream of free download emails from people I never interact with.

If you can’t afford to join, I’ll be adding the printables to my shop, and sharing the wallpapers with my newsletter subscribers, but not until September.
