My apologies for running behind in posts. Important family commitments recently have set me back. Please stay tuned for a few more posts from NoteMaker in the coming future too, I haven’t forgot! 

 

I recently had the opportunity to review a wax seal stamp from Kustom Haus. I’ve never reviewed anything of the sort before, so I had a lot of fun. The packaging was extremely stylish, and they even made the wax seal stamp with a ‘SR’ for Stationery Review (lucky me!). Don’t worry, you can customise your own if you choose.

Just a little image of what came inside the awesome box:

Firstly, I cut approximately 1cm of wax and placed it in the measuring spoon. I lit the candle then held the wax above it, allowing it to melt. I must admit, the wax that was provided is extremely good quality and there’s heaps of colours you can pick from.

After the wax was melted, I then poured it onto the document which I wanted to seal, then used the stamp to create the seal. A minute later, the wax had dried, and I was left with a beautiful wax Stationery Review seal.

Being a creative, I played around with the wax and added a few colours to see what it would turn out like – not too shabby!

Kustom Haus’s products are top quality, and such a great idea for wedding invitations, parties, you name it. If you want something special for our envelopes or documents, this is definitely the way to go. Feel free to check out their website and order yours online at Kustom Haus.

I’d first just like to apologise for the short amount of reviews lately. It’s been a busy semester of study, and hopefully after the next couple weeks I can update more frequently.

After what seemed like a really long time, I finally received my customised notebook in the mail from Bookblock Original. I was so excited to see the finished product. Being able to choose everything, down to type of pages and front cover image, really personalised the notebook for me.  I’ve completed a review for Bookblock before, but I wanted to let you all know just how awesome this notebook really is.

BookBlock Custom Notebook5

Above is the designed notebook that I created. It comes in A5 size, my favourite, with my custom image on the front. It also has an elastic close, a ribbon bookmark and blank pages inside. The best part about this notebook is the customisation. If you want ruled pages, you can have it. If you want dotted pages, you can have it. This also makes the notebook extremely handy for gift ideas as you could put a family photo on the front.

BookBlock Custom Notebook4

The image is extremely high quality, and the feel of the notebook is beautiful. I’m not going to go into the specifications, as I did that in my previous post, but I’ve never come across anything quite like this notebook design before. The pages are also quite thick, which makes it great for writing with fountain pens. I don’t think I could even tell you about a flaw if I tried to find one. Don’t mind the writing, but the picture below shows an example of the inside of the notebook. I was writing with a Lamy Safari medium point, and got little to no bleed-through on the pages.
