Washi Tape Coming to!

washi tape at

You heard right, washi tape is soon coming to CoolPencilCase! (Hint: VERY soon!) What is washi tape, you ask? Originating in Japan, washi tape is a style of japanese paper (similar to masking tape) that can be used for a wide range of decorative purposes! From decorating household items like frames and utensils to school essentials like calendars and study planners, you'll find that washi tape can be used on about everything!

Popular for crafts and do-it-yourself projects, one strip of washi tape can add that fun touch needed to make an item pop! With a transparent design, tape it over important dates, write on top of the tape, or just create fun borders on your school planner! Use them for scrapbooking or even quick fix-ups around the house! Seal envelopes, tape the corners of pictures on family album, or stick them on love notes or letters to your pen pal...we told you there are endless possibilities!

Change your mind on where you've put the washi tape? Easy! Since washi tape is similar to masking tape, just slowly remove the piece (this may be easier on some surfaces than others) and place the tape on something else! Washi tapes come in many different and unique designs, check out our washi tape collection coming soon to!

Accessories for your Filofax, Daily Planner, and Schedulers!

Here at the CoolPencilCase office, it's essential for us to stay organized. With meetings and deadlines, our planners are always open and being filled in. With this said, we really try to spice up the planners and schedulers we use because looking at the same organizer everyday, with the same colorless pages, can be a bit...well, dull. Therefore, we've put together a few accessories to add some color, character, and fun to your daily organizer.

Filofax Spotlight: Interview with AdamsFilo

Can you tell that we've made an awesome group of Filofax friends? Once again, to share the love with CoolPencilCase fans, here's another interview with an awesome filofaxer! Adam, of AdamsFilo, tells us what kind of pen he uses everyday, a little about masking stickers, and even links his youtube video sharing his "on-the-go" the rest below!

1. Describe your love of stationery to us.
I've loved stationery since I was in school, I always wanted to try all different types of pens and pencils. I lost the love as I grew up but in the last couple of years i've regained it, big time! When I was younger I had no clue there was a huge world of stationery items out there! Now I have access to them all thanks to stores, like coolpencilcase, I love being able to try all of the different things and build my collection of stationery from all over the world! Its just so much fun!!

2. What do you love best about your favorite Filofax and why?
I have several Filofax's so it's pretty difficult to pick a favourite, but recently i've been enjoying my Grey Finsbury so much! The cover feels so great, its nice and stiff which is perfect to support the pages while writing. But it also has some cushion to the leather which feels so amazing to hold and carry! Plus its a gorgeous colour and theres plenty of pockets to take some goodies on the go!

3. Tell us about your favorite and most used Filofax accessory (bookmark, gel pen, stamp, etc).
One of the things I use every single day is my Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto pen. I have a 4 barrel Coleto that I carry in my Filofax. They write beautifully and I love having different colours to write with, i'm able to colour code the information I write down with the same pen!

4. Where are some of your favorite places to shop for Filofax accessories, school supplies, and crafts?
I have a few go-to stores for different things, for pens and paper my fav's are 'Jet Pens' and 'Cult Pens'. For other stationery items and Filofax accessories I love 'Cool Pencil Case' and 'Mochi Things'!

5. Can you give some tips on those who love decorating their Filofax pages but are on a budget?
Theres a great product called Masking stickers, they're available from eBay and Etsy sellers for a very reasonable price. They're small packets with 20+ sheets of stickers, each with different colours and designs. They're a great way to start decorating your Filofax pages. They come in several different sets so there will sure to be a design to suit everyone, my favourites are the plain colour set & pastel set!

6. When did you start using your Filofax and how did it change the way you prepared for the day/week/month?
I started to use my Filofax properly last March. I used to have little notes and reminders all over the place, scraps of paper around the house, notes on my iPhone. It just wasn't working for me, I needed somewhere to keep my whole life organised. Now I have a tool to keep track of every element in my life that is fun to used, so fun that it has become my hobby! Now everyday I will start by opening up my Filofax, looking at what I have to do that day and to see whats planned for the rest of the week using my weekly diary. I also have a monthly diary so I will go to that to see if theres anything important coming up like birthdays or appointments! I have a video about my diary set up here;

"Love this pen jacket from @coolpencilcase Is has an elastic belt on the back so you can attach it to any notebook or #filofax. So cool!" - AdamsFilo

7. How do you organize all of your stationery and supplies?
I have some storage boxes that I use, I seperate my supplies by type so I can get to what I want quickly. Using boxes is great because although I love my stationery collection I don't want to see them cluttering up everywhere. So I keep everything organised and put away! I also have a pouch that I call my 'on-the-go' stationery, I keep a selection of my favourite supplies in that and I carry it with my Filofax so I always have something nearby to use. I have a video sharing my 'on-the-go' stationery and what I carry in it here;

Filofax Spotlight: Interview with FiloCuteness

Continuing to spread the Filofax love, we interviewed more of our new Filofax friends and asked them a few questions about organization, their favorite items, and more. This week, we interviewed Amy, of Filocuteness, about her Filofax and more fun stuff. Check out our chat with her below and see the cool pencil case she loves using, why its important for her to plan ahead, and where she stores her collection of stickers!

1.  Describe your love of stationery to us.
As long as I can remember, I have loved stationery and school supplies.  There's just something fun and special about personalizing your organizational tools.  I have always enjoyed making a to-do list on a cute and colorful notepad and keeping my planner up to date with coordinating stickers and sticky notes.  I've learned that if it's fun to look at, I'm more likely to use it!

2.  What do you love best about your favorite Filofax and why?
I absolutely love the color and size of my Large (A5) kikki.K Mint Time Planner. It has lots of room to store notes and extra planning essentials and holds a lot of inserts.

3.  Tell us about your favorite and most used Filofax accessory. 
My favorite item to use in my planner is a decorative paper clip/bookmark.  I have a lot of different ones and try to coordinate them with my weekly page themes.  I also adore using my Cool Pencil Case "Sealed With a Kiss" pink heart pencil pouch. It currently holds all of my pens and pencils and looks great next to my planner.

4.  Where are some of your favorite places to shop for Filofax accessories, school supplies, and crafts?
Cool Pencil Case, Etsy, Target, Michael's, and kikki.K

5.  Can you give some tips to those who love decorating their Filofax pages but are on a budget?
Use stickers and washi tape to brighten up and personalize your pages. Shaped sticky notes and page flags are also an inexpensive way to add some flair.

6.  When did you start using your Filofax and how did it change the way you prepared for the day/week/month?
I bought my first Filofax in January 2013.  It made planning so much easier for me.  Because I have three children, it's so important for me to be able to plan ahead and keep important dates close at hand. I love being able to see my daily, weekly, and monthly appointments together in one planner. It's also nice to be able to customize it with sections for to-do lists, menu options, party planning, wish lists, etc.

7.  How do you organize all of your stationery and supplies? 
I keep everything in my desk. I use several pencil cases and pouches to organize my washi tape, sticky notes, clips, pens, and notepads. I store my stickers inside page protectors in a three ring binder.
