April 2017 – World Stationery Day

As most of you will know, I am a massive stationery fan! I have so much that I am never at a lost for notebooks, or anything stationery related for that matter. Recently I found out that today, Wednesday 26 April 2017 is World Stationery Day, I swear there is a National Day for anything and everything now a days. I jumped at the chances of celebrating this day as I am a stationery addict.

I am sure you are all thinking what exactly is World Stationery Day, what is the point of this celebration? Well, after some careful research on their website, I have learnt a lot about the day. It is a day of celebration for the written word and all things stationery. Their aim, to get people all over the world talking and writing about stationery as well as speaking about why writing by hand is important.

March #Paperhaul Subscription Box

I am very excited to show you something that I recently received, I was luckily enough to receive March’s #Paperhaul, a monthly subscription box by Crafty Creatives. I’ve seen this box for a little while now, but never got my hands on one until now. I have heard a lot of good things about #Paperhaul and I was not disappointed when I opened the envelope!

#Paperhaul is an exciting stationery subscription that celebrates great design and high quality stationery. Contents of the box will vary each month, but you could expect, greeting card, postcards, sticker sheet, notebook, mini notebooks and wrapping paper. The subscription box is delivered monthly and costs £10 plus £2 postage.

On the front, there was the first clue for this month’s theme, a sticker that matched the design and theme inside, and stated ‘your #Paperhaul is here’. I was in awe when I looked at the different stationery items I received. What I loved most is that because it’s in a hard-backed envelope rather than a box, it fits through your letterbox!

This box contains:

  • One large greeting card with envelope
  • Three postcards
  • A ruled notebook
  • Three mini notecards with envelopes

The designs are amazing, I love the bright and vibrant colours, they are all very floral which I suppose is very fitting for March as the first day of Spring was Monday 20 March. These have definitely cheered me up and made me excited for Spring/Summer. I love that they’ve chosen a design to match the month. Along with the floral designs, there is little quotes on everything which I love!

There’s a card for different occasions and I can not wait to send these to my friends and family. I’m sure they’ll be a lovely pick me up for anyone! I’m really glad I received this box, as I love my stationery I can really see myself using it. Especially the ruled notebook, like how adorable is that! It’s perfect for little notes, I might just leave this on my desk for important dates/notes.

I hope you have enjoyed this post! If you’ve liked what you seen, you can get your hands on April’s box HERE. I am definitely thinking about subscribing to this box as I have loved what I received this month and I was not disappointed!
