Review: Yamato Clip Memo Tape + Magnet

It’s fusen time again. 
Feels like it’s been awhile since we’ve done a fusen review! 

This time, I would like to introduce the Clip Memo Tape + Magnet by Yamato

The Clip Memo Tape + Magnet is an improved version of the Fuse’n’Tape
It adds a clip and magnet and now comes in pastel colours. 

I purchased this fusen in yellow, it reminds me of the classic post it notes. 
The roll is 15mm wide and 10m long and fully self adhesive, like other fusen, it is movable. 
The dispenser has a clip on one side, a magnet on the other side and a paper cutter on the end. 

The clip is unfortunately a bit thicker than the usual paperclip, most likely to hold up the weight of the fusen roll but it does clip on nicely onto a notebook cover.
But again, the weight does not make it very practical. 

The paper material used is nice and thick and the paper cutter cuts the paper roll easily.
I really like the jagged edges, it looks like washi tape. 

I decorated some strips of fusen that I cut. 
I used highlighter pens here and I think it looks pretty good. 
And because the material is paper, not film, most general pens will work. 

The yellow really stands out on white notebook paper, great for marking stuff and other important uses.

Also, did I mention it won the Good Design award for 2020? 

What do you think? Is this something you would find useful?

Review: King Jim Kraft Notebook Cover

Do you know that feeling when you buy a new notebook and you don't want it to become dirty. 

The options are wrap it in plastic, buy a cover if one is available, leave it as is (shudder, the horror) and now King Jim have these Kraft notebook covers

The covers are made of washable kraft paper, look really smart, have an elastic look closure. 

They come in 4 sizes (A6, A5, B5 and A4) and 4 colours (Navy, Beige, Brown, Gray). 

I picked up 2 of the A6 sized covers in gray and beige that were on sale. 

The inside of the cover is very well constructed with very neat stitching. 

The inside of each vary slightly with each size. The A6 comes with 2 card sized pockets, 1 A6 height pocket, a half sized pocket, a pen holder, bookmark and a pocket for you to slide in the back of your notebook. 

Here I used a Midori A6 notebook and of course, it fit perfectly. 

I also inserted a notebook into the half size pocket, that works really well if a notepad is your paper of choice. 

I like that it has lots of storage, although the pen holder does have a limit for the size of pen that will fit. 

With the Midori notebook and the cover closed, it isn't as thick as one would think. 

In conclusion, these notebook covers are really useful and great for keeping your notebook and other things with it. 

If you're someone is carries a notebook around, this is definitely something you should look into. 

What do you think? Is this something you would purchase?

Review : AMIFA Masking Sheets - Watercolor

Today, we will be reviewing the new masking sheets sets from AMIFA.

Each set contains 8 sheets of masking tape texture sticker sheets (2 sheets of 4 designs) and they measure 150mm x 100mm.
There are 2 types available.

First type 

2nd type
The sheets are designed for "Free cut" aka you can cut them any way you want before peeling off the backing paper and sticking them somewhere.

If you prefer to not cut by hand, you can also use a paper punch 

Or an electronic cutter for an even more precise cut (settings : masking tape)

The possibilities are endless!
What would you do with these?
