New Pentel Sign Pen Colours!

I'm always excited when brands release new colours for existing product lines. 

Pentel recently released 12 new colours for their sign pens.

Here in Singapore, Pentel ran a promotion where a purchase of all 12 of the sign pens, they would gift a limited edition pen roll.

I of course bought all 12. 

The colours are all so pretty, a great addition to the existing sign pen collection. 
The pen roll fits all the pens perfectly too. 

What are you waiting for, go run out and get them!

Review : SEED Color Correction Tape

Just when I thought correction tape was pretty much all the same, Japanese stationery brand puts out COLOR correction tape. Available in 6 colors, I picked up 3 of the ones I figured I would most likely use.

From left : pink, kraft and black

They work pretty much exactly the same as their white-out counterparts; dispensing opaque tape but with color. 

One of the most obvious uses is to cover up writing mistakes but now you can use it on non white backgrounds to further hide your mistakes! The kraft one works wonderfully on...kraft paper. XD

Another excellent use in your journal would be as a highlighter or fusen whereby you can write on top of the surface with any pen you have. Makes for a wonderful pop of color!
The official website also suggests one can use it in giftwrapping, decorating, scrapbooking etc!
Have you come across these tapes? What have you been using them for?

Review: Dear Kitchen Tape Cutter by Nichiban

I use stationery in every part of my life, especially the kitchen. 
Labelling is such an important part of organising a kitchen. 

I've always used washi tape to label but I recently discovered this line of 'Dear Kitchen' tape by Nichiban. 

There are a number of different items in this line. 
I purchased the tape cutter and another roll of tape with it's own magnet holder. 

First up, the tape cutter also includes a magnet and it is much stronger than the smaller magnet. 

You don't really need the tape cutter, the tape can just as easily be torn by hand much like washi tape. 

The tape cutter does mean tearing tape with one hand is fuss free with the addition of a slanted blade. 

Also, I hear you asking, how is it different from washi tape? 

It's plastic instead of paper which means it is more water resistant and will last longer. 
However, this means that water based pens will not work with the tape, the best pen to use is a permanent marker. 

Overall, it's a great addition to any kitchen. 
Easy to use, easy to write and looks great, it even comes in an array of different designs. 

I know I could use a labeller and I do own one but writing on tape is so much more convenient. 

Do you prefer tape or labels? 

Bonus, it has a notch for you to attach your pen. They've thought of everything!
