#PaperchaseLovesLists – A List A Day Journal

It’s the first day of National Stationery Week! I am really excited that this week is finally here. I have a lot to share with you. Glad that I can finally start kicking off with the celebrations now. So let’s dive right into it with today’s theme: #PaperchaseLovesLists! It is a day sponsored by Paperchase, dedicated to lists and why they are amazing.

Lists are very popular for many reasons. They are probably a growing trend among people, actually. There is a variety of different listmaking challenges and books available out there. With this theme in mind, it seemed only apt to share one of my own journals for list lovers from Paperchase themselves. So without further ado, may I present this ‘A List A Day’ book:

National Stationery Week 2019 – #NatStatWeek

National Stationery Week 2019

The long awaited National Stationery Week 2019 is almost finally here!  In one sleep, we will wake to a week long celebration of all things stationery related.  Yes, that’s right, seven full days of stationery.  At the Aumsome HQ, every day is a day full of stationery though.  However, it’s really nice to be able to celebrate with likeminded people – stationery addicts.

National Stationery Week (#NatStatWeek) is a great way to encourage more people to get writing.  So many people have not held a pen or pencil in so long!  Technology is taking over, with everyone emailing or direct messaging each other.  Digital planners exist or online calendars.  Ask your friends, family and colleagues when the last time they wrote something with a pen was?  The answer might surprise you.

What Glue to Use – featuring tesa adhesive giveaway

When it comes to crafting, there is a huge range of products that you can buy. It’s very easy to want everything. However, there’s always a few ‘essentials’ that are the most important. Everything else comes as extra, add on costs if you wish to spend it. These crafting essentials vary depending on the craft itself. If you’re crocheting, an essential is a crochet hook. For papercrafts, one of these essential items is an adhesive. This post will be looking into the variety of different adhesives that you could use and some examples of when you might want to use them. So without further ado, let’s have a look at some of the adhesive essentials you may need.

Personally, I don’t believe that ‘one adhesive fits all’. It’s simply not the case. The material matters; some work better on fabric, others might work better on wood. The purpose also matters; whether you want a strong adhesive that permanently sticks quickly, a temporary option or perhaps a slow drying one.

I’m also thrilled to announce that there will be a giveaway at the end of this post. What better way to end National Craft Month than by sharing a crafty giveaway? Hopefully these products will inspire you to craft even more! So, let’s get on with looking at the different types of adhesive before then!
