REVIEW : PetaPeta watercolor tape

Tired of your usual stickers or washi tape? How about something a little different? Today, I'm going to review the watercolor tapes by PetaPeta.

Each roll has several different shapes and peel off the main roll of release paper easily. They also come in gorgeous vivid colors, which when placed on paper, create a watercolor look.

They are a little translucent but not quite like washi tape. If i had to give an example, i would say they are close to vellum paper. Adds a gorgeous shot of color to journals and gift wrapping. You can write on them with a marker or fast drying ball point pen! Or trying layering them for a different look! The possibilities are endless!
Have you tried these? What do you think of them?

Paperchase Padfolio

Stationery shopping is one of the best things about travelling. 

I went to London for work last year and picked up this padfolio notebook in blue from Paperchase.
I thought the format was refreshing and the colour scheme (neon orange interior) was cute. 

I never expected to use it as much as I did. 

The idea is quite simple, in the front of the notebook there was a clipboard/folio.
Inside, there is a  tearaway pad of paper and a pocket to store loose sheets. 

It's perfect for quick notes or if you don't have space for an open notebook. 

I use it mostly for random lists and to dos. 

My one criticism of the blue padfolio is that the cover slopes down at an angle.
It's not a major flaw but can make writing a bit difficult. 

This year I travelled to London for work again and picked up 2 new padfolios. 

This time they had thinner spines and laid flat. 
Very aesthetically pleasing I have to say. 

The pink one had a plain paper pad, 2 types of adhesive notes and a cardboard pocket. 
Isn't the colour scheme so pretty! 

The second one is a simpler and the notepad is lined. 
I like the grey kraft material of the cover. 

This one currently holds my to do list. 

It doesn't take up a lot of space and it's easy to reference. 

You might be thinking that a normal clipboard would serve the same purpose but I like the feel of a notebook and it's always a good thing to carry extra paper around! 

What do you think? Is this something you might buy? 
Let us know below.

Multi Use Pens : PILOT Acroball White Line, 3M and Paperchase

As a stationery addict, I have always wished I could bring my entire collection with me no matter where I go. Alas, the bottomless bag has yet to be invented so what does one do?

The solution? Multi use pens!
There are many available but as an example, we will look at 3 which I own!
From left: PILOT Acroball White Line, 3M Post It Highlighter pen, Paperchase sticky notes double ended pen.

Maker: 3M
Usages : One end has Post-it tabs and the other is a Highlighter

 Maker: Paperchase
Usages : One end has a ball point pen and the other is a Highlighter. The cap covering the highlighter also dispenses sticky film tabs!

Maker: PILOT
Product Name: Acroball White Line
Usages : One end has correction tape and the other is a 3-color pen which changes as you turn the middle of pen to the corresponding color marked (Blue, Black, White). The pens and tape are refillable!

Personally, I use the Acroball a lot and is something I bring out with me quite often as I do not have as much to highlight. Have you tried any of these? Or do you have one to recommend?
