I am in love!! Last month Foxy Fix released a new leather called Stella – it’s the same leather as Rowena, but it is grey instead of brown. And it is absolutely gorgeous! I ordered a perfect fit cover for my Hobonichi cousin – A5 size.
And it feels amazing! Smooth and soft!
You can customize the perfect fit cover – I chose white stitching and yellow elastic.
For the inside, I chose the criss-cross pocket. You can see my Hobonichi Cousin Avec inside, which I labeled with some monthly tab stickers from Studio Calico – I love being able to quickly flip to the right month!
The Hobonichi Cousin Avec has same A5 format as the Cousin version, but it’s split into two volumes (January-June, and July-December). I prefer it because I can only carry one volume around with me.
This is what the back pocket looks like.
Now, is this really a perfect fit like the name claims??
I tried my perfect fit cover with these 3 notebooks:
The cover I bought is for the Hobonichi Cousin, and you can see that with the Avec version there is some extra room. The Leuchtturm1917 A5 (hardcover) fits pretty well, even though it is a snug fit to insert the back cover into the pocket. Foxy Fix also sells a model of perfect fit covers specifically for the Leuchtturm1917 A5. I wish there were a slimmer version to fit the avec, but as it is it’s not too bad at all, I like having the option of using my cover for all these notebooks!
Overall I am thrilled with my purchase! These covers come in a variety of leathers and colors if you want to try something different. Save 10% off your first order with my Foxy Fix Referral.

Well, I have fallen into the rabbit hole of planners and traveler’s notebooks. In the space of a short few weeks, I have become totally obsessed! 🙂 They are so much fun. I have acquired monthly and weekly traveler’s notebooks, that I use for documentation, and a melon planner by Studio Calico that I use mostly to plan my creative projects. I see these planners as a way to use up my stamps and have fun in a small format, and so far I am having a blast.
Today I stamped for the first time in my Melon planner that I received this week, so I wanted to share a few photos. BTW, the planner is currently 40% off through the weekend, and you can get an additional 20% off with the code EASTER20 – it’s a great deal! In fact, I couldn’t resist and I may or may not have a grey planner coming my way…
I just LOVE the melon color – and the polka dot inside! Anyway, here is this week’s spread in my planner.
I used the mega date stamp to add the dates – it is coming back in stock in June so hit the “notify me” button here if you want to know when it’s back!
I used a pastel color theme for this Easter week.
I have also fallen in love with the planner kits from Studio Calico and I will definitely buy the April one going on sale on April 1st – the stamp set has so many possibilities!
There is a fantastic promotion going on if you want to try out a Planner or Stationery kit this month. Just add the 1-month subscription to your cart and use the promo code FREESCKIT to get the kit for free, all you have to pay is $5 shipping (FREEKITINTL for international).
