If you are a follower of my blog, you will know that i was recently chosen to be apart of a design team for the Etsy shop It’s Only Me Caralee. I am so honoured to be a part of this team and cannot wait to get started!
Today i received my very first package from Caralee. I filmed a little unboxing on my YouTube channel. If you would like to see that click HERE. Anyway i decided that i would show off the stickers in my package in a little more detail here on my blog.
The first sticker that i received in my design team package was these colourful pay day stickers. I love these stickers due to the variety of colours that they come in. I am a bright planner girl so almost all of my spreads are colourful. This means that these stickers will work perfectly with any spread that i do. The cost of this sticker sheet is £1.75
The next sticker sheet that i received was some heart check list’s. Again the colours are lovely. These check lists peel so easily off the paper which i LOVE. They don’t fit perfectly in my personal inserts, however i normally chop my checklists down a little bit so they fit so it is not a problem. The cost of this sticker sheet is £1
The last sticker sheet that i received was a brand new release from Caralee’s shop. It is a personal weekly kit. I am obsessed with this kit! I have never seen a personal weekly kit before and i am so glad that she has brought one out! I’m always jealous of the beautiful weekly kits that people use in their Erin Condron planners so i am extremely happy that i can now do something similar. In this kit you get two washi strips that fit perfectly along the sides of the page where you hole punch. However Caralee has not put the hole punches in the strips so you can use these anywhere on the weekly spread which i love! You also get 6 page flags and 8 mini page flags that you can use as check boxes or to mark little events. In this kit you also get 6 to do headers, 6 work headers and 3 important headers. The headers fit lovely in the personal spread. You also get 12 icon stickers plus 2 habit trackers, 4 circle stickers,2 decorative stickers and a weekend banner. I LOVE this kit! The colours are so summery and its so unique! I really hope that Caralee brings out more of these kits in lots of different colours and patterns! Finally the cost of this sticker sheet is £3.
I hope you have enjoyed this blog post. I am so excited to share other amazing things during my time on the design team. If you have liked the look of any of the stickers mentioned or stickers in Caralee’s shop, you can use ZOEA10 for 10% off your order.
Lately, i have found that i spend hours on Etsy looking at beautiful stickers for my planner. My current basket has 45 items in there! #NotKidding. Anyway i decided that i would treat myself, due to some exciting things happening in my personal life, so i orderd some stickers from Small Stuff Creations.
Small Stuff Creations is a lovely shop on etsy that sells TINY cute stickers for planners. The price of her sticker sheets are 80p plus 80p postage. I think this is an amazing value! I orderd 11 sheets of stickers and altogether i paid £9.60 including postage.
The stickers arrived in a small paper envelope. The stickers are then in a pink little bag which is pictured below. The envelope was sent second class. I ordered these stickers on Sunday, i got a shipped notification on Tuesday and they arrived on Wednesday (today) so that was super quick shipping.
The stickers that i orderd were:
When the stickers arrived i loved how bright they are. With all of the stickers available in the shop you can choose to either have them in bright colours or pastel colours. From the pictures above you really cannot tell how small these stickers are. According to the information box for the stickers they are 0.8cm small. I am not going to lie, when they arrived i was taken back on how small the stickers looked. However comparing them to my personal Filofax inserts, they look an amazing size! They are not too small, but big enough to fit a few things in a box on busy days. I thought the best way to show you the size of the stickers is to do a comparison photo of the stickers next to a sheet of stickers from DaisyDuster Designs.
As you can tell by this photo they really are tiny! however they are so cute. I think these would be perfect for a personal and pocket Filofax planner!
I really like these stickers, they are lovely and bright and are also so easy to peel off which i LOVE! Nothing worse then a sticker not coming of the sheet easily! I would 100% recommend these stickers to anyone who has a smaller sized planner.
I hope you enjoyed this blog post! I apologies that i have been MIA for the past few weeks. I have had a few big changes in my personal life that i had to adapt to. I am now all up to date with this blog so hopefully i can post consistently again!
As some of you know, i received a Filofax Original Nude in a swap that i did a few weeks ago. When i was on Facebook, i got a question asking me if its a nice as what people make out. I was really skeptical at first as i have never really like the Originals,however it looked lovely so i wanted to give it ago.
Filofax Originals retail around £65 brand new,however if you are on planner group’s on Facebook you may mind a pre-loved one a little bit cheaper. The Original that i own is the personal nude. However Filofax offers the originals in all sizes and loads of different colours.
The outside of the Original is thick cow leather with a patent finish. The feel of this Filofax is AMAZING! It feels so nice to the touch. This Filofax is the floppiest Filofax that i own. When ever i saw an original before, the floppiness really put me off. I didn’t think that i would like it as i am use to having stiff Filofax’s. However, I LOVE IT!!!! I love the floppiness. It’s just so nice to hold and use. I think i want another one already!
The inside of the Original is the same as external leather with patent finish and visible reverse of external leather.The Original has two card pockets, one vertical slip pocket, two elastic pen loops, one multi-functional elastic holder. There is also a slip pocket at the back for a paperpad. If there is one thing that i dislike about this Filofax it would be the elastic holder pen loop thing on the inside of the Filofax. In my 100% honest opinion, i don’t actually know why it is there. I have no idea what i would use it for. The left pen loop is a normal sized pen loop, however the right pen loop is ridiculously small!! I couldn’t even fit my really slim ebay pen in there!
My most favorite thing about this Filofax is the closure. The closure is made of a leather strap with a branded popper and colour coordinated gel button. I think this is really cool touch to the Filofax. None of the other Filofax’s that i own have this detail on the front so im really liking it.
All in all i love this Filofax. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone who is thinking about buying one! It is so stylish and elegant it would really go with anything! You could also use this as a business planner if that is something that you do. Please let me know what you think and if you have one.
Oh my goodness! – can you believe it? Out of loads of applications and I was one of six people chosen to become a member of the Its Only Me Caralee designs team! I’m so excited, surprised and honoured that I was chosen.This is going to be an amazing opportunity for me and this blog so stay tuned!
For the next 6 months I’ll be working with Caralee and the rest of the lovely Designs Team members to write blog posts, film YouTube videos and take Instagram photos of items we receive and how we use them. It’s going to be super exciting! Make sure that you are following me and everyone else in the image above on Instagram so you can keep up to date with our posts!
I hope you are all excited for the upcoming blog posts! I would like to thank Caralee for giving me this opportunity. I cannot wait to get started!
I hope you all have a lovely week!
