Review: Hapila! Sheet Seal Collection Refill

 Nothing is more fun than stationery shopping...well maybe except the organization of stationery *_* If you are like us, you will have tons of stickers in your stash and it is just too easy to forget about them. So when Hapila! released a sticker filing solution, we simply had to check it out!

Each pack comes with 5 sheets and each sheet is A4 with 30 holes. 

There are 3 pockets [single sided opening] and each measures 98cm X 210cm.
This makes it large enough to file your sheet stickers in its original packaging. Plastic sleeve and all!

To file these sleeves, I used an A4 30 rings binder from MUJI.

It took me a while to file everything but here is a video it done ^^

What do you think? How do you organize your stickers?

Review: Kamio Piritte Masking Tape


 Tape, there's no such thing as too much tape! 

There's so much choice when it comes to tape, what makes Kamio's Piritte line of tape different? 

 The piritte masking tape is described as 'cellophane-like'. 

It's clear and matte, which is something you don't see very often.  

Each roll of tape is 20mm wide and 4m long. That''s wider than a regular roll but shorter than say, MT tape. 

I picked up 2 designs to try out. 

The top one is 'otona no zukan' (adult illustration) stationery edition, the bottom one is 'frames story' cafe edition. 

Both designs are really pretty, and very usable, and as you can see, does not reflect light which makes it easier to photograph. 

The cellophane-like texture is unlike any other tape I've tried before. 

I did find it that it warps a bit when you use it, and it's prone to getting caught on other parts of the tape, the longer you unwind it. 

However, like washi tape, it comes off of paper easily so it is easily adjustable. 

The designs are very usable, I used the cafe ones in this brown layout. 

and I cut up the stationery designs for use in my diary, it looks quite seamless here, like I drew the designs myself. 

I really like this series, other than the minor annoyances such as the warp, which can be helped by unwinding the tape slowly. 

Other designs include sea creatures, musical instructions, even characters such as moomin and peanuts, something to appeal to most people. 

Mostly importantly, it photographs nicely, which when taking pictures of your daily journal, is an important trait to have. 

What do you think? Would you purchase this tape?

Review : Hapila! Tsuku log - Masking Tape / Flake Sticker / Marker Collection Card

If you are like us, you must love collecting stationery. 
So when it comes to cataloguing them, what do you do? 

Japanese stationery brand Hapila! has come up with a new solution.
Introducing Tsuku Log Collection Cards!

Here are 3 I picked up to try
Each pack has 30 sheets [printed on both sides] and they are B6 in size.
They are also made of fairly thick paper so that the ink does not show on the other side. This is particularly useful for the marker collection card when you are swatching multiple markers.

These sheets can be stuck inside a diary or simply holed punched to be used inside a binder; making them very versatile.

Its really quite nice to be able to see at a glance one's stationery collection.
Will you be trying these out?
