Say Nice Things Stationery

New stationery brands pop up on what seems like a daily basis, however, every now and then one catches my eye and holds my attention. I spotted SNT (Say Nice Things) over on Twitter way before they launched and was intrigued. We got to talking and I was rather tickled to be sent a rather substantial pack of goodies to have a look at.

I was sent:

The Crystal A5 Journal


I fell in love with the Crystal A5 Journal at first sight. I adore the simplicity of it and like the fact that it has been designed so that you may use it any way you want or need to. This journal features 6 sections, all of which being colour-coded.


This enables you to split the sections up to use for different purposes, for example, a dream log, goals, diet information, anything! The first four sections are lined for you to use as you will and section five includes blank rather than lined paper as well as geometric colouring pages (to match the cover) giving you more freedom to doodle and colour to your heart’s desire. The sixth section features twelve double-spread month to view calendar pages which are ideal for planning, habit tracking and more. The possibilities are endless!


My photography really doesn’t do these items justice if I’m being honest.


The Crystal Journal also features a handy pocket at the back for stickers, notes, basically anything you want to keep at hand. I’m using the journal as a bullet journal and am loving it. If you’re looking for a present to make someone grin this year, this (or any of the SNT journals) would make a great choice.


The Cadence A5 Notebook


I’ve had to keep this bad boy under wraps somewhat as I’ve snaffled it and hidden it to put in Roy’s Xmas box! Not “just” an ordinary notebook the Cadence Notebook feels great, is perfect again for bullet journal use, work notes, story notes, doodles, whatever you want.

With a selection of plain, lined and grid paper pages, this offers a flexible notebook solution that can be whatever you want it to be.


A selection of gorgeous notecards / postcards and envelopes


These are just adorable! Like everything at SNT Stationery, these cards and their envelopes are made from the highest quality materials and you can tell that the second you look at them. I haven’t used these yet (mainly because I’m trying to decide which ones to pinch from my writing box to pin up in my office) however when I do I’m sure the recipient will be thrilled.

Specific details, the dimensions and everything you really need to know about these items may be found on the SNT Stationery website. I just wanted to talk / blog about what *I* think about them!

An up and coming company Say Nice Things really seems to see and understand what people, men and women, want from their stationery and as such I’m looking forward to seeing them grow. If you want to help support them, make sure you have a nosy on their site and if you see something you think would make a brilliant gift (for you or someone else) go for it! You won’t be disappointed 🙂


The Erin Condren Deluxe Notebook with Calendar

Erin Condren Deluxe Notebook with an added calendar

As many of you will no doubt already know I have been using the Erin Condren Life Planner for a while now. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and it has even encouraged my creative side out of hiding. I’ve decorated the daily spreads somewhat, used stickers, become more organised BUT (there’s is always a but) it hasn’t ticked all of my organisational boxes.

I’ve spent an obscene amount of time browsing blogs, YouTube videos and stalking  following my favourite stationery tarts and decided to give using a bullet journal a try. I adapted my current ECLP and used the notepaper in the back and came up with the perfect system.
Planner zen at last.

This system allows me to organise and prioritise work notes and tasks, incorporate brainstorming, lists and more while still managing a busy family and home schedule and all the appointments and reminders that comes with that.

While this notebook is larger than the popular midori set up  the size is perfect for me and I’ve included monthly spreads and monthly note pages in the front for scheduled / adavnce planning etc (this cost $15 more).

I’ll blog properly about my bullet journal soon however for now I’m just happy to introduce my Erin Condren deluxe notebook with calendar.

The notebook comes with:

  • 12 monthly spreads (starting from whatever month you choose)
  • Monthly note pages
  • 132 lined pages
  • 21 designer blank pages
  • A double sided sleeve for storing papers
  • A clear sealable pocked for storage
  • A page of date dots to use on the monthly spreads
  • A clip in ruler / page marker
  • Removeable covers 
  • A voucher for ordering a personalised divider (I didn’t order dividers as I have two ruler/page markers I can use if I want).
  • An assortment of stickers, postcards, sample coil clips, a sample page of EC Do it All Dot stickers
  • Referral cards (gives someone $10 off their order and I beleive $10 credit to the person whose link is used). I’ve not included my referral link but feel free to comment and I’ll email you it or contact me via the contact us page if you aren’t on my FB etc.

I can vouch for the paper quality already as this isn’t my first EC.

Keep your eyes open for a new post shortly about how I’m using this as my schedule / bullet journal.
