About Caroline Pad. From the site:
“Carolina Pad notebooks, binders, and other school and office products stand out from the crowd. You might also catch a glimpse of our fashion collections, with catchy names like Hot Chocolate and Pattern Play, on hit shows like 90210, Greek, and Gossip Girl”
“The secret to our design success: passion, research, and attention to detail. We sweat the small stuff because we know that it’s the little things that count.”
Pie and I are notorious paper users and notebook fiends! You can never have too many pretty things to write in, right? Right! So when we opened up the big box of goodies we were sent, our eyes lit up as we were drawn towards the bright and colorful items inside.
Pie’s first pick was, of course, the Peace On 1-subject notebook. Peace signs are all the rage with her friends this year, and nothing is cuter together than stripes, polka dots & peace signs! I think I see a future shopping trip to find the entire Peace On collection for her first day of school. Next she claimed the very pretty Rising Sun pencils because hey, that girl NEEDS more pencils! Love the soft colors of those. She also really loved the 3 pack of Rock On 2-pocket folders. I’ve got to say they are very cool, we love how the silhouettes are made up of different colors/styles of the word Rock! She said they look “awesome” in the new Eye Candy 3-ring binder she claimed as well.
Mom gets to keep the gorgeous pink Mo’ Rockin’ 18 month planner (maybe it’s cuteness will encourage me to keep to a schedule!), and the so pretty Rising Sun composition book was mine the minute I laid eyes on it! I love the simple yet classy design on the cover, it will be a perfect journal! I am in L-O-V-E with the adorable Graffiti fashion pens! O.M.G. the grips are fab and who can resist those sweet doodle designs? Not me! I also really dig the feminine grunge style of the Free Spirit ideal book. This sweet 3-section tabbed notebook is going to come in very handy as my wish book! I see visions of chicken coop drawings and flower bed diagrams in it :) I only wish it had more than one page sized pocket in it, maybe one for each tabbed section! The CD sized pocket is a nice touch though.
I think what struck me most when I first started handling these Carolina Pad products was how well made they are. I have truly never felt notebooks with such solid and durable covers as these! Every single item has a high quality look and feel to it! I was pleasantly surprised to see that almost every item I’ve mentioned was only $2.50! The planner is the most expensive at a measly $4.00. I’d be excited to give and/or receive any of the Studio C collections by Carolina Pad as a very affordable & adorable gift! And with all of the different designs you will certainly find something to suite your taste!
Buy It! The new Studio C collections by Carolina Pad will be exclusively available at Walmart for the back to school season (July – early September) and will range in price from $2.50 – $4.00.
Win It! Thanks to Carolina Pad one very lucky reader is going to win an awesome prize pack full of Studio C collection similar to what I received!
