Capri Designs {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I had a friend from high school who literally asked for school supplies for her birthday, and though at the time, I probably would have placed clothes above school supplies on my own birthday wish list, I totally get it!  These are the things we use every day, all the time, so why not indulge on writing and note-taking supplies that are full of character, style, and chic personality!  Ladies, I’m talking about Capri Designs.

You’ve seen me feature their fabulous padfolios and notepads on here before, but today we have the first rockin’ giveaway from Capri Designs for our readers, and this time, I’m showcasing the lovely array of products from the new Sarah Watts collection!

IMG_9327Now lets take a closer look.  These new prints feature blossoms, lions, hedgehogs, foxes, owls, elephants, and even toadstools!  They are earthy, colorful, full of geometric shapes and artwork, and as cute as can be!

allIn this collection, you can find sketchbooks, spiral notebooks, metal bookmarks, clipboards and paper sets, daily journals, notecard tin sets, pocket companions, page flags, padfolios, wall calendars, and coming in June: backpacks and messenger bags!!

padSo I have a little obsession with Capri Designs padfolios.  I own three of them, and I am using them daily!  They’re just so functional while dripping with personality, and the working parts make it slick to keep track of notes/receipts and slide in and out of a bag.

noteHere is the notepad in Blossom, and the Note Card Tin Set.  Details, details, details!  There is a touch of personality and uniqueness everywhere you look!  This tin set would make an excellent gift for a graduate.   Lastly, we have these fancy page flags below.  They are just like cropped sticky notes, which let you mark up novels or textbooks with removable notes or use them just as bookmarks.  These would also be a great high school graduation gift, to encourage intense studying in college!

tinHave you had enough eye candy for the day?  Ready to win a bundle of stationary and other supplies from Capri Designs?

Some days, I could peruse the office and stationary aisles all afternoon, couldn’t you?  Everything is just so new, so useful, and usually so cute!  All the colorful notepads, fancy pens, and pencil boxes take me back to grade school, the uncontrollable excitement of back-to-school shopping, and the stage of life where I was constantly learning, growing, and experiencing so much every day!

Capri Designs Color Palette Logo, FinalI’m definitely still in a stage of learning, growing, and experiencing, but its a whole different ball game as a mom, huh!  I’m still needing office supplies more than ever and I’m still a sucker for the cutest prints!  These from Capri Designs are just exactly what I find useful, brilliant, and perfect for the busy mom!

Capri Designs has a new Signature collection in “All For Color” prints, and these beauties are from the Classic Anchors collection.  This style speaks to me!  Clean, nautical, bright, and sophisticated.   Gingham and anchors is perfectly “me + Boston”!  Included in my bundle to review was the Daily Journal ($10.50), Everyday Note Cards ($9), Magnetic Bookmarks ($4), and a Pocket Companion ($4).

pinkThe Pocket Companion is perfect for shopping lists.  It fits in a back pocket, stays closed with an elastic strap, and holds just the right number of scribbles before you can rip and toss.  This has become my ‘companion’ on all my errands for the last few weeks.  Also, these magnetic bookmarks are genius.  I don’t know how many times my books have been dropped, shaken, and tossed around in this house, and the bookmarks never stay put.  You could even use these to help you study and place them horizontally next to paragraphs you want to focus on.

IMG_0100The Everyday Note Cards are beautiful!  I love that there isn’t some kitschy saying on the inside, and how printed paper lines the inside of the envelopes.  Beautiful envelopes and beautiful colors!

Also in this “All For Color” collection are these fun prints:

Spring 2014 Swatch - Ikat Bliss 124 x 170  Spring 2014 Swatch - Sunset Chevron 124 x 170Spring 2014 Swatch - Fresh Pick Geo 124 x 170Spring 2014 Swatch - Moroccan Tile 124 x 170

Aren’t these perfect for Spring!?

Visit Capri Designs and hook yourself up with some vibrant school and home supplies!!

I currently hold a leadership position in our church’s women’s auxiliary, which entails conducting meetings, attending meetings, and occasionally teaching lessons to a large group of women every Sunday.  I’ve had this calling for a few months now, and I feel like I am still scrambling to get organized.  In every meeting, there are more papers to hold on to and lots of notes to be made, and if I don’t come prepared, I end up scribbling on the back of already-scribbled on coloring book pages left in my church bag.  I decided I needed a much better system, and I remembered how much I loved Capri Designs and their functional, useful, and visually beautiful products.  I knew they’d have just what I needed.

Capri Designs Color Palette Logo, FinalAnd they did.  Capri Designs sells a designer-style collection of stationary, back to school, and home office supplies for the working woman and homemaker.  Everything they sell is something I would love to have, honestly!  This is the Padfolio with Clipboard, in their Signature Anchors Away print, which is 100% the solution for my weekly scramble.

IMG_8379

Why I love it:

There is an interior pocket to hold loose papers as well as a sturdy clipboard on the front to snatch onto anything loose flying around.  This is perfect for holding announcements as I’m reading them.  The interior notepad contains 50 sheets of papers with these cute little anchors on them, and the surface of the padfolio is hard and strong enough to write on.  The print is classic and still fairly professional.  It measures 9.5″ by 12.625″ by 0.875″ so it can accommodate full sheets of paper without a problem, and is sold for $14.50.

I was also sent the Magnetic Writer’s Round to review, and it is just as much a favorite of mine.  I’m usually in the kitchen when I need to jot down a number, a shopping list, or a to-do list, and having these notes on the fridge where I can pull one out with one hand and not mess with peeling, sticky surfaces, or even having to put them away when I’m done, has been perfect!

IMG_8368fridge

This is the Vivid Paisley print and it contains 175 notepad rounds!  You could also stick one of these inside a locker or metal file cabinet, and never be without scratch paper to jot down an address or number.  These are sold for $7.50.  When the rounds run out, I’m excited to use this to store pencils or maybe even extra fridge magnets.  What a cute storage box it will be!

Do you remember Lisa Frank art and school supplies?  The techno-bright colorful, happy, and extremely pre-teen girly line of pencils, stationary, folders, lunch boxes, etc.  If there ever was a fan, it was my 11-year-old self who would do anything for another item in my collection of Lisa Frank things to take to school.  The same feelings of, “I want one of EVERYTHING here!” and “I want the whole collection” and “I MUST have one of these in that print!” came flooding back as I awgled over everything in the darling shop called Capri Designs.

Its like a grown-up collection of stationary, back to school, and home office supplies for the working woman and homemaker.  Let’s begin with some of my favorites!  This is one of the cutest clipboard and paper sets I’ve seen!  I only wish I had one back when I was teaching Home Ec, and always had a clipboard in my hand.

CPS_5348_PAISLEY BREEZE_1_L

And oh how I need some of these magnetic writer’s rounds for my fridge!  I seem to always be scrambling to find a post-it, and these notes are just so adorable, and would always be where I needed them.

If you’re currently a student, and find index cards useful for studying, wouldn’t these colorful tabbed index cards only encourage more studying?!

IND-5272-Blooming Bunch large

And I would love to use these signature note cards to send thank you cards and sweet notes to friends:  SNC_5371_ANCHORS AWAY_1, L

What really gets me are all the organizational gems, like these file folders!  SO cute!

I was drawn to literally every product from Capri Designs, but the padfolios won my heart.  Capri Designs sent me two of their padfolios, and they are beautiful!  Here is the Signature Mini Padfolio with Pocket Organizer in Cottage Rose, along with the Medium Padfolio in Heritage Floral.  I LOVE this cottage rose print!

IMG_3261

 These floral prints make me so happy!!IMG_3260

I’ve been looking for a better grocery shopping companion than the scribbled piece of paper in my pocket, and this little friend totally fits the bill.  The notepad inside the mini padfolio is so pretty, securely placed, and a new notepad can be inserted in the slits behind when the first one runs out.  My pen stays where I won’t loose it, and the accordian file on the right holds all my coupons!  When I took it grocery shopping with me yesterday, I kept thinking, “this is such a great set-up”.  I love it!

Although I’m pretty happy to live in a time when technology allows us to Skype with family clear across the country, see pictures of a friend’s new baby within hours (or sometimes minutes!) of his/her birth, or receive a text in the middle of the night with some exciting news from my brother, I also love handwritten notes and books with pages you actually have to turn.

main

Galison offers incredible paper products for all occasions with classy themes and collections.  They have organizers, calendars, journals, bookmarks — everything that reminds us of staying connected with other people without having to be connected to the Internet.  Here are a few of my favorites:

pocket planner

I love this Today is the Day Pocket Planner to keep track of appointments, playdates, meetings, and menu plans!  I’ve tried every organizing app under the sun, along with online calendars and other special ways to keep my days straight.  None of them work as well as my paper planner/calendar and my pens.

partyThese Playful Animals Party Picks are also a cute way to decorate homemade cupcakes for baby showers or birthday parties and turn them into something amazing!

bookmarks

This Up in the Air Magnetic Bookmark set will be finding its way into my four-year-old’s Easter basket this Sunday – we’ve recently started reading early chapter books, and we need something better than a sticky note to tell us where we are! bookplates 2   And these Forest Friends Bookplates are the best ways to keep track of your books and to ensure that they make it back home once being lent to a friend.  (I’m a big reader, and I like to swap books with my friends.  I know I’m guilty of having borrowed *someone’s* book, only to have to try and remember whose it was…)

Head on over to Galison and check out their great collections, and be sure to use the coupon code ZZZ2 (three Z’s and the number 2) for 15% off any order!

If you’re really on top of things, you may have your Christmas cards already planned out, but have you thought about how to dress up and personalize the envelope?  Wouldn’t a personalized message or seal on the back of your letter be such a classy addition and bring a smile to whoever opens it?  Have you seen the beautiful creations at Custom Stamp Place?

Look at all these lovely options for the back of your Christmas cards or gifts:

 

And there are so many more great ways to use these stamps than just for Christmas cards!  What about a stamp for your return address?

 

A teacher’s stamp for homework, a job well done, or a note going home…

 

…and wedding invitations!  Its almost proposal season!

And here’s one I love: a stamp for all your books, so they will all return home to you after you’ve loaned them out to friends, since it is just the kind of weather to be indoors cuddling up with books.

Custom Stamp Place also carries stamp pads and re-inkers so you’re all set!  Every stamp has the several different mounting options.  You can choose a rubber stamp/wood mount, a rubber stamp/handle mount, a self-inking mount, a pre-ink mount, or no mount at all.

Custom Stamp Place so generously let me pick out a stamp!  I wanted something that we can use every year on every Christmas card, no matter how big our family gets or where we move to, so I went with something without names or an address, but classy nonetheless.  I love the font and the clean picture it creates.  The ink they sent along with the stamp is top quality, and looks like it will last for several years.

Thank you, Custom Stamp Place, for making adding that special touch to our Christmas cards!  The best part is that I can pull it out and use it year after year!

Well, its your lucky day, Dandy readers!  Here is a 10% off Custom Stamp Styles Coupon Code: “DANDY10”.

Wouldn’t you love a custom stamp of your own?!  Custom Stamp Place is offering one lucky winner a $20 gift certificate to spend at their store!  Stamp away!

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat!  Every year, my family draws names for who will give gifts to which family, and its usually a huge dilemma for me, trying to decide what gifts to give.  You want it to be personal, something they don’t already have, and something that will be useful.  If you are looking for a great family gift idea, here are some super ideas from FamilyStickers.com!

You can design your little family of stick people like I did here:

And then create all sorts of fun things!  There are so many super cute options, such as fridge magnets:

Stationary:

Or even jewelry!

This year, I wanted to make our little family a Christmas ornament!  I’m DYING to put up the Christmas tree early so I can show off our new ornament from FamilyStickers.com!  I was so pleased with how it turned out!  I loved being able to select every detail I wanted to include, down to the exact skin tone and color of every article of clothing and object.  The ornament itself is much more sturdy than it may look.  Solid and thick.  Ain’t no baby chewing up this ornament off the tree.

Christmas gifts are covered for one lucky winner who will receive a $30 giftcard to spend at FamilyStickers.com!
