I have from an early age been a huge fan of office supplies, stationaries, stickers, pens and pencils. I was all over Lisa Frank and I to this day have the sticker collection from my childhood! I have always thought there was something so special about a pretty piece of paper on which to write a nice note. When traveling I am that person who steals away pens and pads of paper from hotels as memoirs. I see these kinds of things as such practical souvenirs!

Last year I went to an iPhone app unveiling party with my friend Joelle. There were yummy treats, delicious drinks, and most importantly....goodie bags! My goodie bag came filled with beautiful orange pens, notebooks, rulers and fancy little all black pencils. I was overjoyed. I looked up the brand on my perfectly sized notebook for toting around in my purse and my heart leapt when I saw what a cool office supply company Poppin was! Simple, colorful designs for your office needs! They were kind enough to send me a box of goodies to photograph and I excitedly did!

Their notebooks have this amazingly textured paper that is great for doodling in. The smaller one that I have is perfectly sized for Impossible Project shots or Instagram prints.

It was perfect timing as I had just received my two packs of The Impossible Projects special edition Nigo PX70 Colorshade film. One of their best batches of color film yet! Each pack comes with 8 different colored frames. The colors complimented the cute Poppin products so well! I had so much fun shooting these pictures.

Am I alone in my love and hoarding of office supplies?!


  1. I love hoarding office supplies & I think this stuff is absolutely gorgeous. May I ask you something? What kind of surface do you shoot on to get this studio like-look? I love it & would appreciate any tips. Thanks! :)

  2. Nope, you're not alone! I've always loved new pens and fresh notebooks. I used to be really into Sanrio stuff, but I refrain from buying it anymore. I have a huge collection of postcards and stationary that dates back a few decades. The Poppin stuff looks really fun! Thanks for sharing.

  3. definitely not alone and I loove how you combined it with the coloured polaroids, such a great idea!!

  4. So colourful =)
    You're definitely not alone. I am obsessed with notebooks and journals! I just bought a bunch last week.

  5. Cool and Cute Office supplies are definitely worth hoarding. If I had infinite cash I would probably fill a whole room with pretty pens, stationary, tape, books, journals, postcards, cute to-do lists... the list goes on. The only thing that makes cute office supplies even better is when it's an instant photo of cute office supplies. ;)
