My Favorite Stationary, Pens, Stickers and Planner Supplies (& A Giveaway!)

Yesterday I shared with you how I set up my Blessed Is She planner. This is part two with my favorite planning supplies. šŸ™‚

* * * * *

Whenever I write a post about planners, journals, snail mail, or lettering, etc, I always get messages and emails asking me about the supplies I use and where I bought them. To make it easier for you, I compiled a list of my favorite stationary supplies. Hopefully it will help you find a new favorite. šŸ™‚

(Note: Some of these are affiliate links, meaning I get a small percentage of the sales that goes towards keeping this blog online. I did not receive any of these items for free. They are just products that I bought myself and loved!)

Erasable Pens for My Planner

*** ***

When I write in my planner, I MUST be able to erase. I used to use pencil until I found these awesome erasable pens. I have three sizes:.

The thicker Pilot Frixion Colors Erasable Markers.

The thinner Pilot FriXion Pencil, 0.7mm Ballpoint Pen, 12 Colors Set. (Also available in the 24 pen set.)

The even thinner Pilot Frixion Ball Knock Retractable Gel Ink Pen, 0.5mm, 10 Colors Set.

(One note: It has been said that the ink of these pens disappear in extreme heat but the ink will reappear if book is placed in the freezer. I have never had an issue but I also don’t live in extreme heat.)

Colored Pens

These are my favorite regular thin pens.Staedtler Color Pen Set, Set of 36 Assorted Colors

If you don’t need as many as 26, this 20 pack of Staedtler pens is nice and it comes with a cool plastic case that can stand.

Handlettering/Brush Lettering Pens

My favorite black drawing pens are Micron. I use this when I am practicing hand lettering.

For hand lettering with a brush pen in black ink, I use Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen 2 Pens Set. It comes with a hard and soft tip.

For colored ink, I use the Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

Handlettering Introductory Books

I’ve been wanting to improve (and learn more about) brush lettering so I’ve been using these two books.


Lettering For Beginners: A Creative Lettering How To Guide With Alphabet Guides, Projects And Practice Pages


Creative Lettering and Beyond: Inspiring tips, techniques, and ideas for hand lettering your way to beautiful works of art (Creative…and Beyond)

If you don’t want to spend money on a book there are plenty of practice sheets to be found on Pinterest. I have also used these at Tombow.

Colored Pencils


Here are the colored pencils I use – Prisma Scholar Colored Pencils. Costco had this art set available. I haven’t seen them there anymore but found it on Amazon.


If you don’t need all the extras, you can buy just the pencils.

Pen/Pencil Cases

I’m (almost) embarrassed to tell you how many pencil pouches and cases I have! šŸ˜‰ Here are a few of my favorites.

Weapons of Mass Creation Pouch – Love this. It’s available in three sizes. šŸ™‚

Star Wars Tattoo Flash Nylon Pencil Case 8 x 4in – When I wrote my last planner post, this pencil pouch was sold out. I am adding the link anyway in case they get more or you find another Star Wars style you may like. (They were also sold out of the matching Star Wars backpack I bought but have since got those back in.)Ā 

YOUSHARES 120 Slots Pencil Case – I use the above Star Wars pouch for one set of erasable pens that stays with me and my planner in my purse. The other pens and pencils I keep in this larger case that stays at home. I bring it out when I have time to decorate my bullet journal or planner.

I use this smaller Designed for Arrangement pencil case as a little traveling pen/pencil holder when I need a variety of pens to take out of the house.

Magnetic Bookmarks/ Bookclips

 

London Magnetic Bookmarks – These little book magnets are cute ways to mark my pages. šŸ™‚

Forest Friends Magnetic Bookmarks – I’m a sucker for cute forest friends.

I also love all things Jane Austen so these Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy magnetic clips from Jane’s Tiny Things were a must! ( Note: I just ordered the Anne and Captain Wentworth version to go with them.) šŸ™‚

 

 

 

 

 

I LOVE these Star Wars book markers. I change them around my planner to suit my mood. (Darth Vader hangs out by the Mondays. Han by the Fridays. šŸ˜‰ ) You can find them at HappyHelloCo at Etsy.

Planner Accessories

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tiny Saints CharmWe have lots of these cute saint charms on backpacks and adding my patron saint (also patron of mothers) to my planner seemed appropriate. šŸ™‚

Photo credit: LuckyDuckDesigns. – For my bullet journal, I purchased this pen holder from this great etsy shop. I love her holders and have a few designs but she often sells out so you’ll have to keep checking back. I also recently found this shop that sells journal pen holders. They are made of a thicker material that doesn’t lay as flat, but she has some cute designs.

Sticky Notes

These are the sticky notes I used for my planner dashboard.

Write It Down Shaped Sticky Notes: 175 Decorated Stickies

Monthly Sticker Subscriptions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I re-live my childhood by continuing my sticker collection. I use them to decorate my planner, bullet journal, snail mail and more. These are two monthly sticker subscriptions that I love.

Pipsticks – There are two different subscription packs: Kids and Adults Pro Club. The Classic Pro Club pack includes 15 sheets of stickers, 1 postcard and 1 quote card. Cost is $14.95. The Pro Club Petite pack includes 7 sheets of stickers and 1 mini quote card. Cost is $9.95.

Stickii Club
– There are three different subscription packs for you to choose from: Cute/ Retro/ Pop. Each pack includes 5 or more sticker sheets, 1 bag of sticker flakes, and sometimes an extra stationery item. Cost is $10 a month.

Washi Tape

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Washi tape can be found at most stores that carry stationary, including Target. I usually wait until Michaels puts them on sale or clearance or use one of their weekly coupons. You can also order cute washi on Amazon.

Other favorites pictured in my planner photos.

This Choose to be Grateful mug from FawnlyPrints is my current fave.

    Love this post, Bobbi! I always love seeing you share your writing/planning on the BIS Insta stories.

This might push me over the edge. Happy almost birthday!

    Love all of these and this fun! Papermate felt tip pens are my tried and true favorites but earasable merits giving them a try!!! Also I haven’t been able to part with the my Erin C Planner for the BIS planner, I really wanted to last year but then chickened out and reordered the life planner I knew and loved. Maybe this year! God bless!

    I love my stickers!! Every time I go to a store I keep my eyes peeled. Also pens. With back to school I’m looking around to see what’s new.

  • Nikki says:

    I love sticky notes but my real obsession is pens. I just love having pens in differing colors so I can tell with a glance “what” something is about, at least that is my official reason. I just love writing in different colors and seeing them all.

  • Anna Pry says:

    would love to have erasable pens, i just use an erin condren planner right now and the teacher planner too

  • Simone Smith says:

    I love washi tape for my planner! Lovely box you have put together, such a thoughtful giveaway.

    I want to try washi tape! I’m too nervous about putting it crooked in my planner, even though it’s supposedly repositionable. šŸ™ˆ

  • Maria Cardenas says:

    Post it notes are always present in my planners. šŸ‘šŸ¼

  • Chris Staub says:

    I do love the frixon erasable pens! I recently started using them (per your recommendation) in my BIS planner…and they are fantastic!

  • Stephanie Bonin says:

    I want to pick calligraphy back up. Handwriting is a joy to me. Mine has gone downhill since the surgeries. Thank you for the inspiration!

  • Laura says:

    So fun! I love seeing what people use. I like bold felt pens that I have, and have a traditional calligraphy holder + nib, but would love to try a brush pen and other kinds of pens.

  • Elena Luther says:

    I love seeing your favorites! I want to try the erasable pens and bookmarks.

  • Reem Al Janahi says:

    I love experimenting with pens but I’ve never got to try brush pens (and if I ever get a hold of them I’m probably going to get waaaayyyy too obsessed šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚). Also, happy early birthday <3

  • Briget says:

    I cannot live without my Pilot G2 .38 pens and my Post It Notes! I use them for all sorts of things in my planner. I also like Post It Tabs to make dividers, and I use highlighters to highlight certain dates (blue is for medical appointments, purple is for birthdays and holy days, pink is for my husband’s ever changing work schedule, and yellow for the super important dates or things I need to remember. Very quick and easy for me to use!

    I love your blog!

  • Laura @ Life is Beautiful says:

    I really like colored pens to differentiate birthday vs appt vs meal planning etc in the same space. However, full disclosure– I don’t actually do that. I just like the idea of it, haha!!

    Love my Catholic Mother’s Companion planner, although I’m intrigued by the BIS one!!!

  • Sydney Morris says:

    I really love colorful pens to help me organize dates by subject and categories. This giveaway would be perfect for me!!!

  • Maribel Navarro says:

    I recently came across the erasable pens during a trip to Target and quickly remembered you had posted them in your instastories. I purchased them and so far I’m loving them! It helps me be more carefree and creative knowing I can easily erase as I go forth with my tasks.

  • Cate says:

    I’ve just discovered a love for all things paper & pen! šŸ™‚ Hoping to use tombow brush markers and experiment with them.

  • Michelle Macias says:

    I’m going to look for the pens you’re recommending that are erasable…
    I’ve preordered the BIS yearly calendar! Thank you, Bobbi, for your ministry! God bless you from the Holy Land! I am in awe here.

  • Jeanette says:

    I have been loving my staedlers lately!

  • Kelli M says:

    I’m not super creative with my planner so trying some of these things would be fun! I never know where to start with the extras and just seem to never try anything new!

  • Maria Holmes says:

    Erasable pens?!! I had no idea they made these. I’m super excited about them!!!!!!

  • Gina D. says:

    Brush pens! I’ve always wanted to try my hand at calligraphy. šŸ™‚
