asking for trouble

Next Month on Patreon

Here’s what’s coming up throughout February if you join my Trouble Club on Patreon.

Trouble Club Patreon

Things have changed this year and there are no longer any Happy Mail tiers. Instead, Patreon is more about supporting me so I have more time to create, and in return you get special access and rewards. You can read more about that on Patreon. Here’s the new tiers:

Trouble Club Supporter ($1)

  • Unlimited use 15% discount code
  • Weekly catch up post behind the scenes
  • Occasional wallpapers & printables
  • Take part in polls for new products/designs
  • First access to sales and limited offers
  • Access to the Trouble Club shop with exclusive products and add-on Happy Mail deliveries

Trouble Club Member ($5)

  • All the $1 rewards
  • Monthly printables, zines etc. including exclusives
  • 75% discount for all my printables & zines
  • A postcard in the mail every 6 months (sent in January & July)

Special Reward: Japanuary Zine

All $5 patrons will get a free digital copy of my next zine. It’s my way of doing the Japanuary daily photo challenge from Cakes With Faces. I’m really looking forward to going through all my photos to find pics and stories I’ve not shared before. It will also be available to buy in my shop after.

How Patreon works

To get the discount codes and zine, you need to join my Trouble Club before the end of January as Patreon charges everyone on the 1st. Wallpapers, printables and posts are available whenever you join.

Can’t afford to join?

You can still follow along for free. You won’t get any of the rewards but I do make some of my posts public. Also, some wallpapers will be shared with my newsletter subscribers the following month. You can also take part in my Surprise Mail Swap and I will send you something fun.
