Not sure which Journal to get?

Review: Scribbles that Matter

Oooooooh the one I have been waiting for – Oh happy face! Now – Before I even start – YOU WANT THIS ONE (or a lemome that are about equal). The Review of Scribbles that Matter Bullet journal in A5 is definitely one of my favorite.  If you want to see the larger STM in a B5 head over here for our review

You can get them in New Zealand from Journal Junkies for $32.99 (use the code Bujoclub for 10% off :P)

Or internationally you can get them from Amazon for $19.99 – so already the price range is fabulous

Ok so lets get started!

The cover is hard, its thick and really robust. The spine has an embossed “scribbles that matter”

There are some really great colours and personally I am looking forward to getting the grey one!

It has an elastic closure band and a pen holder. Fabulous!

How the scribbles that matter bullet journal manages paper

We then go a little deeper and there are 201 numbered pages each one a buttery 100gsm thickness, the dots are 0.5cm apart and there are 27×37 dots on the page.

There are 2 lovely matching ribbon book marks.

What I love love love about the back page is they have a mindfulness space to review the use of your journal, as well as dedicated pen test pages.

I adore that the scribbles that matter lays flat and the binding is robust and doesn’t break after months of abuse! This helps takes great photos!  Another thing I love is there is a a number of versions of the scribbles that matter – this is the Pro version we are looking at now which has a variety of colors and also less of the iconic embossed icons on the front and back. The standard version has a number of embossed icons all over the pages.

There is limited bleeding and ghosting. which is great.

How water color works in the scribbles that matter bullet journal

Watercolor is a little tricky – the paper doesn’t love water but seems to fair with it far far far better than some of the others. the paper buckles under the water but it doesnt pill

Pros:

All of them!

Limited to no bleeding, thick paper, opens flat, thick and robust, pen holder

Cons:

The only thing I am going to complain about here is the water color – if you aren’t using water colour in your journaling, that ok then! But I do, so I might be hunting an elusive watercolour/bullet journal

Overall:

This is my favorite book, and I will continue to use it, although I do want to try some of my others.  For the watercolor buckling the page, I have it a 4.5/5
