Make your planner stories beautiful with Bella Storia MNL

10 May

[UPDATE] Bella Storia MNL changed her brand name to Papermela

My followers and frequent readers already know how I am so inclined with Creative Planning. I design my planner and makes me enjoy planning tasks ahead of the week. One thing I never forget to use are stickers. I go crazy over them whenever I see new designs from my favorite craft supplies store.
Just recently, I received sets of stickers and clips from Papermela (formelly, Bella Storia MNL). Papermela is an online (instagram and facebook) and etsy store. The owner/designer Domina Carmela started her business October 2013 under the label Hacked Craft. She later on closed due to priorities but reopened 14th March of this year and renamed her store to Papermela. This shop now has collections of Chibi and Kawaii emoji stickers, paper clips, planner kit bundle and sticky notes.


Why I love the Kawaii Emoji Stickers

I am so excited to show you the beautiful kawaii stickers from this shop. I got the camera kawaii, shopping bag kawaii and laundry cleaning kawaii set. Here are reasons why I love them!
1. It Has an Effective Packaging
The stickers are sealed in a zip lock packaging inside a small brown envelope. This way, you are sure that even if the envelope gets wet, your stickers are safe.

2. These are the Stickers a Planner Enthusiast Needs
As a planner enthusiast, I prefer stuff that are related to planning. Papermela has most of everything you will be needing. For students, you can buy their tuition fee kawaii to remind you that you need to pay for your tuition fee already. For happy go lucky people, if you plan to have some me time – there is a shopping bag, pop corn, donut, coffee and green tea kawaii sets. You can also remind yourself when to pay dues as you can put your car bills, water bills and rent payment kawaii sets on your respective planners.

 3. Great Print Quality
I printed my own stickers before but didn’t get the correct colour that resembles the image itself. I used a glossy sticker paper back then and some get smudged. The stickers I received are printed in matte sticker paper. The images are not blurred nor have spots. No smudges at all too. Surely, inks used are for high quality printing.

I also like the idea of using matte sticker paper. Matte is somehow near to the texture of an “oslo” paper. It makes the sticker look like not a sticker. Hahaha. I hope you get what I mean. It’s like it is printed or drawn on the paper of the planner spread itself. Plus, if you decide to have the planner sticker bundle, you will be able to write on the checklists and the weekly box sticker.
4. Easy to Peel and Perfectly Cut
I really had to compare these stickers to the flags and box edges design sticker I just recently baught. It’s hard to peel off and the edges are tearing. Very disappointing. Papermela’s not. The spaces between the stickers are in proportion that I think it’s the reason why each was cut evenly resulting to easy peeling.

So I said it’s perfectly cut. Why? Because there isn’t any part of the image that’s wrongly cut. I stalked the shop’s Instagram Account and saw the crafty owner/creator uses a Cricut Explore Air. To how that machine is being programmed to cut the stickers, I don’t know. I just believe Domina and the machine are bestfriends. Hahahaha!

Now let’s have a look on the clips.

Why I adore the clips

I orded two clips from their Etsy Shop. One is the Floral Dress Paper Clip and the other is the Vintage Floral Shoulder Bag. I always want things with a touch of pink. Bet it’s super obvious with the clips!
Clips are crafted by no less the owner of course. It’s a little embossed because there is a canvass underneath the die cuts. The whole dress and the vintage bag was smeared with a clear glue to make sure the die cuts are intact with the canvass and to keep the color from fading.

I attached the Floral Dress Clip on my Kikki.K Planner Dashboard. The Vintage Floral Shoulder Bag makes me easier to go to this week’s spread.

Overall, I am impresses with all that I received from that little brown envelope. I suggest you checking Papermela’s etsy and online shops now and see how Domina’s designs and craft products can make your planners and simple journals beautiful. Trust me. You’ll never regret. The girl’s crafting since childhood.

So that’s it! I am so happy I have shared again some thoughts about my planner obsession. Oooppps. It’s a hobby. Hahaha
