Kate’s Stationery of the Week #4

As seen on my Instagram earlier this week (I’m Magic_Kitten if you’d like to follow me!), here’s my stationery of the week for this week…

In keeping with my resolution to keep in touch with friends on paper, I popped into my local Paperchase to look at what correspondence sets they had. I went for this set, with illustrated pages (I’ll write on the other side) and envelopes. The set contains 20 sheets of paper and 10 envelopes, for £6. For my next set, I think I might go Korean, as they’re bound to have some beautiful designs.

Plus, I couldn’t resist the adorable Koala rubber, for just £1 – it’s from the same company who made the set I bought recently.

Kate’s Stationery of the Week #3

This week, my stationery of the week was free! What could be better than free stationery?!

Simon and I were both at London Book Fair this week, which had a Korean theme – yes, I know! – and I managed to find a stall about Naver, a popular webtoon site now publishing comics as books (I was allowed to take two to try in a lovely tote bag) and, while I was there, was given a lovely biro pen with a paper outer casing. In case you can’t tell, it says “Korea Market Focus 2014 The London Book Fair”. An excellent souvenir from an excellent day. You can hear more from me about the London Book Fair over on http://www.adventureswithwords.com

What’s your stationery pick this week? We’d love to know!

Kate’s Stationery of the Week #2

This week, I have a new love… Washi tape, or patterned tape, is making a huge comeback. Here’s a lovely set I found in Paperchase but you can find it all over the place online and in stationery stores.

I used the red roll on the left to wrap up my Mother’s Day present; it looks lovely against the wrapping paper. It’s also great – apparently – for paper craft, personalising greetings cards and so on. I’m looking forward to experimenting with different patterns and designs.

Do you use washi tapes? Got any tips for me on making something lovely with it?

Kate’s Stationery of the Week #1

Hi all! Slightly later than planned, I’ve got a couple of pieces of stationery to share with you that I’m particularly pleased with this week…

If you like post-its, you’ll love these teeny tiny sticky notes:

i-Marker 'Paris' sticky notes

i-Marker ‘Paris’ sticky notes

It’s (almost, sort of) the skyline of Paris! They’re not the most practical but they’ll be great for bookmarks or finding my way back to various scribblings in various notebooks (and, like Simon, I have one or two…). I know they have other designs too – I’m going to keep an eye out for London and New York!

Then, there are these – totally kawaii! (Apologies for the shaky camera work!)

Iwako Doll and Lucky Cat Eraser Set

I really love the Japanese kawaii ‘cute’ trend – I’ve been a fan of Japanese culture since I discovered Haruki Murakami and Studio Ghibli, ten or twelve years ago. This is a really sweet little ‘puzzle eraser’ set, that’s partly a toy but also works as a rubber. I don’t know if you can see but this is number 17; I know number 1 is a funny little fast food set with a burger, fries and a milkshake among other things, but I particularly like the little animals. Could I ever bring myself to use these to rub something out? I’m not sure; I wouldn’t want to spoil them! I might have to get another set “for best”. Is that odd?

What stationery are you coveting at the moment? Simon and I would love to know! Tweet us your finds @WeScribbleIt or leave a comment… xx
