Trillia Planning June 2016

Trillia Planning is a monthly Canadian subscription box that supplies you with all your day planner needs. For $19 a month you will receive scrapbook paper, stickers, washi tape, embellishments, stamps and pens. Shipping is free within Canada and there is $5 for international shipments. You fill out a survey when you first sign up saying if you have pets, kids, favorite colors, past times etc. This helps them send you relevant items!

First Look

 

Last month we had a shiny purple mailer and this month it’s blue! I love that they changed up the color, I hope this is a regular thing!

Everything was inside of a clear plastic sleeve and had a note attached to it. I always appreciate small touches like this that make it more personal.

The Goods

Washi sample from Echo Park (flip flops)
Papermate Inkjoy Gel Pen
Ephemera from Echo Park’s I Love Sunshine Collection

Seriously, can anyone ever have too many pens? I don’t know about you, but I can never find pens. I don’t use this type of pen in my planner, I generally stick to Staedtler porous point pens, but it’s still handy to get these. Just from looking at these first few items I could tell there would be a ton of summer in this package!

Crabby Apple Designs was the featured Canadian Etsy shop this month. This is a planner band and clip. I do find clips handy with marking the right week. This is a really cute one, though I do worry about how it’s not going to let my planner lay flat. The band is cute too! I like the colors on both.

Journaling cards from Project Life Prismatic (rounded corners)
Echo Park’s Sweet Summertime 3×4 cards (square corners)

In the two pictures above you can see both sides of these cards. I generally hate double sided things because how do you decide which side to use? I like the colors and patterns on these, just need to figure out what the heck to do with this stuff!

I believe these cards are just more/different patterns as the ones above!

6×6 paper from the summer collection by American Crafts–These are both great! I love anything bicycle patterned, and I love how summery the other paper is. I still really don’t have anything to do with these papers so they will either go into my closet for potential eventual use, or go into a pile to one day give to my mom. I do really like these though, so I might just try and find a use!

Me & My Big Ideas Fitness stickers–I got a sheet of these when I got my Happy Planner fitness planner but they were easily used up. I work out fairly regularly and these are all pretty standard words to use, either on days I workout or just random reminders.

Stickers from Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness collection–This collection seems to be properly named. I love how bright and summery these stickers are!

Dalya’s Dainty Designs colorful checklist stickers–I don’t often have checklists in my planner, though I definitely could with tasks I need to get done at work on a weekly or monthly basis. I suppose this is good reason to start keeping a list! The extra sheet has some cute stickers too, I haven’t added any to my planner yet but they do seem like practical ones.

Final Thoughts

I really enjoy this sub and it’s nice to know that I have stickers coming to decorate with the next month. I wouldn’t have minded seeing more summer stickers, things for BBQ’s or camping even. Just more stickers in general too would be great, but that’s mostly because I don’t journal or scrapbook so the other items aren’t of the most use to me. Even with that said, I can’t wait for next month!
