Filofax Shopping

 

I have been meaning to blog about this some time now. I am a traveler. I travel – a lot. Strangely, because I HATE flying. But I love traveling. Is that even possible?

In 2013, I travelled to Houston, TX a lot – and I think Houston has the best stores for stationary and Filofax type stuff; other than Tokyo!

Paradise Pen: (Houston, TX)

The first store is located in the Galleria Mall. If you are expecting low discounts – look somewhere else. This place sells at the retail price – and sometimes higher. Not sure why, but I opted not to buy anything from here.

Dromgoole’s: (Houston, TX)

This was THE BEST place!

Franklin Covey: (Houston, TX)

FIT Japanese: (Houstom, TX)

 

The Papery: (Philadelphia, PA)

This store is located in Central Philadelphia. Parking wasn’t too bad, it was street parking. They were in the process of moving, so it looked a little disheveled. They had a lot – I mean a LOT – of old inventory, and not really the good kind. They had a bunch of old Kate Spades, one had a diary insert from 2005 and they were selling it at full price.

They had really cute paper goods, so if you are in Philadelphia, check the spot out.

When I return from Tokyo Japan in December, I will get into a nice detailed post about the planner goodies there!

My Kate Spade

I am a part of a Kate Spade group on Facebook, and I am astounded by all the beautiful Kate Spade planners there are in the world. So I am interested in collaborating a blog post about the different types of planners she has created! Sadly, they need to continue making them, no clue as to why its non-existent!! So I am asking that if you do have a Kate Spade planner, to include it in the comments and I would love to include you in on the post!

Here are photos of mine, enjoy!!

My Custom Van Der Spek!

I am currently obsessed with yellow – my entire home is decked in gray slate and mustard yellow. So when I had the chance to customize my own planner, I went with the Van Der Spek! I decided to select the standard size. I’ve always used the Filofax personal size my entire life and I felt this was the best size for me! The exterior is #238 which is the light grey ostrich leather (with some color combinations, this color can appear either greyish or lilacish — keep that in mind when selecting your interior). I alternated the thread colors; exterior was yellow, and interior was grey. The rings are silver 30mm rings which gives me much more paper space!   IMG_7317.JPGI decided not to upgrade anything other than the ring, I just needed a much larger ring for my daily to-do’s. I stayed with the 1 pen loop as well – I find when you give me too many options, it gives me anxiety!IMG_7331.JPGShown here with my Heidi Swapp pen! The strap is the perfect size for that larger 30 mm ring!IMG_7325.JPGStickers shown are reinforcement stickers from my shop, and Heidi’s planner set from Michaels.IMG_7332.JPGI “believe” this may be a little bit wider than the personal Filofax, but not noticeably wider. The measurements are 188 x 144 x 50 mm (in US its, 7.4 x 5.7 x 2.2 inches), whereas the Filofax is 7.4 x 5.3 x 1.75 inches. Both still uses the personal size papers (3.75 x 6.75 inches). Franklin Covey is 7.5 x 6.2 x 1.8 inches. IMG_7333.JPG IMG_7334.JPG

The cost was about $215 after the conversion, and I ordered it October 1. It was shipped out by the 28th of October and in my hands November 14. So you have to be VERY patient! Petra over at VDS is very great with customer service as well!! Join the Facebook group and take a look at all the creative color combos of other VDS owners! I’ll be posting a video soon, showing off my Amy Tangerine Stitched set-up in the planner!

My Kikki K Planner

Hey everyone! I am really enjoying this A5 size, but I am not going to lie – this baby is heavy! I am currently carrying around a Limited Edition Kikki K Planner in mint (size large which is equivalent to a Filofax A5). The dashboard shown in the photo is an old arrow overlay that I had in my shop (soon to open October 1 with all amazing new items from Tokyo!)

I have been getting a lot of questions about my printables. I use Hammermill Color Digital paper where I purchase from my local Staples, and what I like about it is its smooth and super bright white color. Also, the inks from my stamps don’t bleed as much either so that’s a plus! The digital prints are from Miss Tiina and what I did was purchase the personal size (which I was using in the beginning of the year) and just printed it at 130% on half-sized letter paper (aka “statement” in my HP printer). Another cute site that has adorable printables is Hello Forever for those who like them undated.

Studio Calico Agenda

IMG_3666.JPGHey everyone! Well, my casino has finally opened and I am back on my creative kick! I wanted to let you guys know that I am helping Marcy Penner and friends kick off an awesome class called Agenda in the Studio Calico. IMG_4180.JPGCan you believe that I think I have graduated into the A5 size?? I know, its crazy. But with so much going on in my life, I felt it was super necessary. Before I left for Tokyo, Kikki K planner was selling a limited edition mint leather large agenda – and I got my hands on it! If you are obsessed with gold, they have a GORGEOUS one on sale right now here!

IMG_4058.JPGI hope to see you guys there! And on another note — be on the look out, I am opening up the Paper Addict store back October 1! Mark your filofaxes!!!

20140515-031200.jpg

Hello, Paper Planner Addict!

June 1, I will be allowing pre-orders for a limited number of kits. And I mean VERY limited, but the future kits I will allow more purchases. Please keep in mind this is still testing, the products are exceptional and I would love feedback once you receive the kits (what you like, what you prefer, future product interests).

Items are hand selected and ordered months in advanced, some items coming directly from Japan. I have personally picked quality items that I personally use in my day-to-day paper planning life and I hope this will help you organize better while bringing your creative side out! Future products will include but not limited to American Crafts, Amy Tangerine, Heidi Swapp, Studio Calico, Allison Kreft, Freckled Fawn, Sakura Lala, Webster Pages, Hambly Overlay and more!**

June Kits will be available at $5 US shipping, $15 international shipping at the moment.

Future pre-orders will start the 25th of each month, and you will have the option to purchase a personal size kit or an A5 kit (prices vary). Add-ons can be added up until the last day of the month and everything will ship out between the 1st – 7th.

This is a horrible picture but you get the gist of it:

New Shop items!

More pretty things for your planner! I just want to say how so very grateful I am for every single purchase and blog reader who follows me. I never thought that there was so many people in the world who loved pretty accessories for their planners as much as I did! Let’s go over a few new shop items!

20140403-165351.jpg

It’s getting harder and harder to get Hambly Overlays – like VERY hard! Sadly, they are being extinct slowly but surely. They will someday just be gone – and its so sad because they are beautiful! However, I was able to find THREE other manufacturers who do make something similar. Above are three new designs that I just adore. They aren’t the same thick quality as the HO but they are just as adorable. And they were designed by the ever so talented Allison Kreft – who we know was also affiliated with HO. In addition, her paperclips are also in the store. I was able to purchase them in bulk, so split up into a set of 5 for $2.25!20140403-165518.jpg

Also in the store, are the awesome 7mm We R Memory Keepers washi. They are also the same size as the pastel washi in the store here. They are so perfect for the planners since its the same size as a highlighter. 20140403-165537.jpg

I love bookmark clips. These are perfect because they are flat and metal! These came straight from Tokyo, so they take a little longer to come in. More will be in the shop soon! 20140403-165628.jpg

And of course, more overlays/dashboards! I am expecting more gold HO ones in soon – imagine the peacock one in gold! Yes – coming soon! Of course the clouds was a huge success in the my shop, I was able to find a secondary alternative. Its a “doodle” version – basically as if someone drew it on! Hearts, banners, stars! Oh My!20140403-165657.jpg

I love Project Life. And what else I love are the dividers. They are a bit larger than your usual planner ones, so I trimmed them down for you and punched the holes right in. What’s also cool is I cut slit in the holes so you can easily pop them in without opening your rings!20140403-165718.jpgAnd of course, if you have been following my Facebook feed – YES, I am seriously in the works of creating a monthly subscription box of adorable goodies. The item will include 10-12 pieces priced starting at $19.99. Both international and domestic – and both planner sizes – personal and A5 (future sizes to come). It will include washi tape, pens, clips, stickers, mark-its, dashboards, etc. It will also include the option for add-ons. So leave a comment below if this is something you will be interested in and I will be starting a newsletter soon for it.

And once again, thank you thank you thank you – for ALL of your support.
