The team at Rifle Paper Co have been hard at work adding new products to their ever-growing range of paper goodies, which is awesome for us stationery lovers. I’ve been a big fan of the biz for a while so it was a treat to get hands-on with Rifle’s new Vintage Blossoms and Rosa journal combos recently.
The Vintage Blossoms set consists of two journals that are 150mm x 202mm and contain 48 blank pages. The cover is made from a thin cardboard and while it has some sturdiness to it, it would be easy to crease or damage if not careful. The cover features beautiful illustrations with that unmistakable Rifle style. It also has gold foil accents that really elevate the design to another level.
The Rosa set (below) is smaller in size with each book measuring 106mm x 139mm. They feature the same thin cardboard cover but it’s made stronger because of the smaller size. The Rosa set also features gold foil accents. This smaller set is the perfect size to carry around in your bag.
All of Rifle’s notebooks are printed on high quality paper FSC-certified paper stocks. Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), is an organisation created to ensure sustainable forestry and holds the highest level of environmental standards in the paper industry. The inside paper stock is a cream colour and is untextured. I didn’t do a pen test on these notebooks because I’m giving them away.
Thanks to my friends at Notemaker for giving me with these gorgeous journals to review. Notemaker stocks a whole bunch of Rifle Paper Co goodies so make sure you pop by and have a look.

I am VERY happy today because I finally took my one year old boy to the crèche at the local recreation centre and had a lovely swim – on my own! Sounds like a small thing, I know, but fitting in exercise around a baby can be really hard! And I had been so frustrated lately because with winter, crappy weather often meant we couldn’t do our usual thing and get out of the house to go for a run or walk with the pram. It had been making me really grumpy until my husband suggested the crèche. I had to get the nerve up to try it (“what if he cries? What if he hates it? What if I feel guilty?”) but our little guy loved it and I got to exercise and feel good. So, I’m very happy! 🙂
Well today I had a really good day. I enjoyed breakfast under sunny spring skies on my balcony, I slept well last night, I decorated the front cover of my journal (which I will write in after this), my loving partner made us small egg, bacon & spring onion pies for lunch & it is now raining & I just love the rain Now that may sound like a good day but nothing outof the ordinary but something else put me in an amazing mood. I had a day almost free from pain. I got really sick last year & spent most of 2015 in hospital first recovering & then learning how to move, walk etc again. This has left me in pain most days but occasionally I get a wonderful day like today where the pain is only minor & on those days I am really grateful & it’s the best!
