July 2019 Printable

Our July Printable is here! We're feeling kind of green but stuck to our love of pastels. 
Also, did you notice this month's printable looks like washi tape? 

We adore washi tape and if you'd like to take it one step further, we recommend printing this on our washi tape sticker paper.

Review : Zebra Pen Mildliner Double Ended Brush and Fine Tip Pen

Over here at TN5C we love our Mildliner highlighters so when ZEBRA [the manufacturer] announced that they would be making MILDLINERS in BRUSH form, we were quick to purchase them!

They come in 15 colors [also available in 3 sets as shown grouped below]

The colors are exactly the same as the existing MILDLINERS highlighters and are wonderful for coloring and lettering [of course]. The larger brush tip is soft yet sturdy enough to make lettering a breeze whilst the other end with the smaller nib is good for basic thin lines and writing.
I've found them wonderfully useful in my daily journaling and I would almost consider them a must have!

What about you?
Have you tried them?

New find! Stick'n

There is a store in Singapore called Popular, a bookstore best known for school books and supplies. 
I shop there pretty often, I buy office supplies, snacks, cute stationery and even phone cables.

The other day, whilst looking for some new pens, I came across a range of fusen that I had never seen before. 

Stick'n, as it turns out, is a Taiwanese fusen brand. 

Popular had everything from normal paper fusen to index tabs, film fusen, roll paper fusen and even fusen pockets, which we'll discuss in a bit. 

I picked up 3 items. 

Decorative film fusen inspired by famous fruits of Taiwan, pocket film fusen and fusen index tabs. 

 Out of the 3, the fusen index tabs were my least favourite, simply because it is so big and that makes it inconvenient to use. 

The pocket film fusen is really interesting. 
You can use it to hold pieces of paper anywhere in your notebook, receipts instantly comes to mind. 
You can also use it as a temporary frame and because it's film, it's reusable and can be written on. 

There are also 2 types in the 1 package. One has a tab, and the other is a plain pocket. 

I used the pocket fusen here to hold my laundry docket in place, so I don't forget to pick it up. 
Very useful! 

However, I do wish the colour selection is a bit better, but it is quite subtle when you attach it to a notebook page so that's not a big dealbreaker. 

The decorative film fusen is also really cute. 
The material is conducive to colouring, great for that pop of colour on your notebook pages. 

So if you see this brand out, you should definitely look out for some of these items! 
Are you already a fan of Stick'n? What's your favourite product?

Review: Daiso Neon color fusen collection

Another day, another trip to Daiso, another new cute collection! 

I picked up a few pieces from the Neon color fusen collection, but the full collection looks like the above picture. 

The square one is film whilst the other 2 are paper. 

The size of the fusen is what really I was really interested in. 

I had recently begun using a Jibun Techo, and finding stickers/fusen that would fit in its narrow columns was proving to be a challenge, so I bought these Daiso ones, hoping they would fit. 

And they did! 

I loved that the back of the fusen was 80% adhesive, this made it easy to peel and stick.
The colours of all the designs also worked well together. 

Writing on the fusen is easy, although like other film type fusen, a marker is required. 
The paper fusen performed well too.

If you have a Jibun Techo or a similar notebook, I would definitely recommend these.

For reference, the width of these are 1in/2.5cm and 1in/2.5cm tall for the film and 0.4in/1cm tall for the paper fusen.
