Is there anything better than new cute stationery? There probably are lots of things, but this week I found a few really cool items that made me smile.
One of them is my "ultimate" notebook. I started thinking about what would be perfect for me, right now:
- A5 size - not too big to fit in my handbag, not too small to write in
- A zip pocket - for storing business receipts and fabric samples on the go
- Pages that can be used for designing, writing lists, note taking and jotting down ideas
- Spiral bound - so pages that can be easily torn out and transferred to client project folders
So with this list in mind, I headed off to Officeworks....and voila! There it was! My ultimate notebook. It was like I MADE IT HAPPEN!
And then (of course) I made it mine.
Super cute, right? And by some magical co-incidence, the colour of the elastic band totally works with one of my Wendle Handmade stickers. Like it was "meant - to - be".
I also made some dividers for the main part of the notepad, because I like keeping stuff organised.
To do this, I ripped out a page to use for a template, traced the holes to punch on some scraps of pink cardstock and then just snipped the back of the holes to slip around the metal rings. See how cool the pages are too, the dots are great for designing, but also good for writing.
What's your favourite stationery find lately?
Happy crafting! Wx
