Happy Mail from Deya!

Hey there! :D

I got another happy mail!, yay! this one’s a little special though. (not that the others aren’t…) My friend and I, whom I met years ago decided to become penpals! She lives in the Netherlands and I live in Belgium, so staying in touch hasn’t been the easiest, so therefore, SNAILMAIL! Yep! I’m very happy to get in touch with her again, especially with this medium! Since we’re both stationery lovers, it’s perfect!

Like I always do I recorded the opening of her lovely happy mail! :D But first, some pictures!

Look at these! :D I absolutely adore those cute suirrel clips and that GIGANTIC strawberry clip! I just love it! Also those cute embellishments! I’m definitely gonna make paper clips out of those little strawberry embellishments!

She gave me a lovely dog keycap! I love the little dog’s expression, it’s funny!^^ Aside from that she included some small deco tape rolls with a dispender! They are so tiny. And then some cute bear pageflags!

I got my first stickerflakes EVER! :D This I am very excited about! And they are Kokeshi dolls! How cute are these? :o I really want to try making my own stickerflakes (working on that) :) Love the teeth stickerflakes too! She also gave me cute flamingo and cat stickers!

IMG_1131
Here’s the letter she wrote me! She added a cute sticker and sticky note! Her writing is so pretty. :o The pink pen you see next to the letter is actually an invisible ink pen! When you use the little light you can see what was written down with this pen. (it took me some time to figure out though. :p)

These magnets are just <3 There are so many! I love the whole newspaper theme a lot! :D I already used them on my magnet board of course!

Now for the video: (if you’re curious to see my reaction :D)

Well, that concludes another Happy mail update! For those who are waiting for more planner related videos & posts, don’t worry ! I’m working on those. :D Bye everyone!

So this was the first snailmail! I got this cute “homemade” envelop from Stephanie from South-Korea! I love how she used magazine paper to make it! It looks really unique. Beside the cute letter she wrote me she gave me some Korean tea! I will try that out very soon! She also gave me some Korean coffee. I’m so curious to try Korean products, so I’m very excited! She also gave me “Tiny Cute Stationery”! Just look at that little envelop and letter! Korean goodies really are too cute right?!

Now for the other mail! Here’s a picture of the letter my penpal, “Trisha” sent me! She decorated it so pretty! Love the curly design and colors! She even put a little quote in the middle that says:

The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
The more places you’ll go.

-Dr Seuss

It’s such a nice quote! Inside was the letter ofc! Which I had a lot of fun reading! :) Then up to the last of my snailmail!!

I absolutely love the stamps on the envelop too! Now, you must be curious what’s inside right? Here it is!

In the picture above you can see an overview of how she decorated her planner pages! It looks so colorful and sweet, doesn’t it? I can see she used some “Easter” stickers that fit very nicely. She also loves using Washi Tape when decorating her pages and did so here aswell! The cute colored polkadot Washi Tape fits so nicely!

Take a look at this cute dashboard! She definitely made this especially for Easter. I love how she chose for a soft green one since it’s also spring right now. :) I really like this dashboard! Having a dashboard fit with special days like “Easter” or events or seasons really makes your planner unique.

Take a look at these adorable Bunny Paper clips! They really are the cutest! I defnitely like the white one the best, since it’s even carrying a little chicky! In the next two pictures you can see another cute paper clip well fitting for the “Easter theme” and a closeup of a bunny sticker!

My name is Jessica, and I’m a Washi Tape addict!

Hey there !!

A lot of you know that I am obsessed with washi tape! So I thought it was about time to show you the washi tape I have collected so far! Starting off with a picture of course!

BeFunky_IMG_0373.jpg

So that’s my stash(for now)! Counting them I think it’s about 90? But you all know, that it will keep growing. Now, why am I so fond of Washi tape you must be thinking? It’s the possibilities. There is just so much you can do with washi tape, especially decorating things (planners, furniture, presents, cards, craftworks,…). Since I also love seeing lots of different colors and patterns, it just makes me wanna have more washi tape! For now I’m on the lookout to buy more gold-themed washi tape. But they are just so hard to find in stores in Belgium. Next step: Ebay! But this will have to wait for a bit! ;)

I am wondering though, am I the only one here who’s so crazy about washi tape? ;)

New dividers! (kikki k planner)

BeFunky_IMG_0309.jpg

Hey there! As you guys know I recently bought a kikki k medium sized planner. Since I wanted to make it more personal and unique I made these dividers asap! I The things I used to make these dividers were: “Scrapbookpaper, ikea round stickers, pen, laminator, gold pen, hole punch”. That’s about it! My mother actually brought these ikea stickers and I though they would be perfect for my new dividers. I’m pretty happy with them! I chose soft colors since the kikki k lilac is also pretty soft and elegant looking. I’m really digging it! If you want to see the dividers more clearly, here they are! Just click on them for a bigger view.

I’m curious to know what you guys think of my new dividers ;) That’s it for this planner-related update. I hope you all had fun reading my new post! Thanks for the support! Bye.
