Happy new year 2022! It’s been ages since I have last written in this blog but now I am back! Hope you all had a great start to the year. And happy lunar new year too if you celebrate it!
It’s the year of the Tiger! I am a rabbit. What’s your Chinese animal?
Today I am doing an unboxing post because I just received my monthly subscription box to the Paper Club for February. The theme for this month is Terrazzo. It’s a pattern used for flooring and walls but it’s very colourful like a celebration.
The box includes:
1 x Notepad
2 x highlighters
2 x greeting cards
1 x eraser
1 x pencil sticky notes/page markers
2 x pencils
1 x wooden sharpener
I love the theme of this month. It’s very colourful and it looks like it’s made from watercolour with different mixed media. The brochure explains what the notepad can be used for. It can be used for a to-do list or a checklist, for writing messages or letters to someone, for a shopping list, for tracking habits, making goals, for practising lettering, etc.
Each box supports OzHarvest so it’s for a worthy cause and it’s made by an Australian company. If you like stationery then this is the box for you! Items in the box are valued at over $50 and I will definitely use all of the items that are in this months box so it is worth the money.
My favourite item in this months box are the highlighters as they look like good quality highlighters and I have never seen those pastel colours before in highlighters so I am excited to use them. Who else uses highlighters for highlighting notes?
Rating: 9 out of 10 stars. What are your thoughts on this box? Let me know what your favourite item is from this box.
If you’re a follower of my blog then you will know that I have been subscribed to The Paper Club Stationery Subscription Box for a while now. I had just received the October Box and I am so excited to share it with you. Each box will contribute $1 towards OzHarvest, which will feed 2 meals for the homeless so it’s for a really good cause.
This months theme is an Oasis theme that allows you to escape reality.
In this months box we have:
1 x Washitape
1 x Tropical Stickers
1 x Scissors
2 x Tropical Paper Sheets
1 x Greeting Card
1 x Notecards and Envelopes
1 x Monstera Leaves Gift Bag
My favourite items in this months box are the washitape, tropical stickers, and the scissors. I have been a collector of washi tapes since I started my stationery account on Instagram a few years ago so I have a whole box full of washi tape sorted out into different colours. I just love using washi tape as a seal on the back of envelopes or as sticky tape when wrapping presents. I mainly use washi tape for decorating my planner!
Speaking of planners, I have been decorating my planners from stickers that I got from Officeworks as they have a sticker section in the stationery aisle from Carpe Diem that are for planners and calendars. They are just so cute! But these tropical stickers from the Paper Club are cuter and I love the watercolour style they have used for these stickers. I will definitely use them in my planner. Keep an eye out for my planner and washi tape collection.
The last favourite item is the golden scissors with the black trimming on the handle. It just fits my style of my desk so I am glad to have it sitting in my pen holder. The Paper Club have added some really good items in this months box as it’s the first time I have received tropical stickers and golden scissors!
if you want to find out more about the Paper Club then I will put a link to their website here. You can check them out in your own time. The subscription box is only $19.95 a month and all stationery boxes have a combined value of over $50. It’s really worth the money and I have not been disappointed in any box yet. I have loved all the items I have received so far and I am not just saying that because I am a stationery addict.
Overall, I rate this months box 5 out of 5 stars. It’s probably one of the best boxes yet!

I just received my June stationery box from the Paper Club. I thought I’d share with you what I got in this month’s box. This month’s theme was a floral winter garden theme. On the card, it said ‘Bringing joy with flowers’ on the front and then on the back it describes what the theme is about.
‘The bright floral designs evoke the wisdom of nature. A flower doesn’t force itself to open but must simply wait to bloom. When we plant a garden, we know the flowers will take time to grow and through these actions we show our belief in a better future and a more beautiful world’ (The Paper Club 2021).
I like the theme of this box. You expect the theme for a winter box to be dark colours but the colours of the theme is a mixture of bright and dark. It has a blue, red, yellow and gold theme with a hint of green. The design somehow all works well together as one.
The box includes:
1 x rose gold ruler 2 x gel pens 1 x letter writing set 2 x greeting cards 1 x gift tags 1 x wrapping paper
The box is encouraging you to take time to make time. It says ‘get cosy and create something special with the gorgeous pens, nurturing within yourself the seeds for a luscious life’. I love the rose gold ruler, gel pens, the letter writing set and the wrapping paper. I will definitely use those. I love collecting greeting cards so I will add those to my collection. I am not a huge fan of the design of the gift tags, letter writing set and the greeting cards of the red flowers. I prefer the simpler designs like of the wrapping paper and the other greeting card but it’s still a gorgeous box and I love how it encourages you to write. Overall, I rate this box 4 out of 5 stars. I can tell a lot of effort has been put into it with their own packaging and designs. It still makes me excited for the next box!
