Cloth & Paper offers a monthly subscription box of their planner supplies, inserts, and writing instruments. The items look sleek and Cloth & Paper believes “there is luxury in simplicity”.  The Planning + Stationery box is $39.99 a month but drops to as low as $36.99 a month when you sign up for a 6-month term. The Penspiration box is $21.99 a month but drops to $19.99 a month for the 3-month plan. The Penspiration AND Planning + Stationery combo is $54.99 a month and drops to as low as $49.99 a month when you choose the 6-month term.

The items were wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with a sticker — sleek and simple.

Looking good!

I found a card that told me what I would find inside this month’s Planning + Stationery box.

Here is a picture list of those items on the back.

Everything was wrapped in plastic to keep it nice and tidy.

When you sign up, you will get to choose the planner size that you own (there are 13 options) and then you will receive products that will fit appropriately. If you don’t own a ring or discbound planner, then there is also a 14th option, to receive a coordinating bound or notepad stationery item instead. Cloth & Paper has a website with tons of stationery products and you can find a planner there if you are in need.

Everything in my Planning + Stationery box! Again, you will need to have a planner of some sort and Cloth & Paper has lots to choose from on their website and in a variety of price points. If you don’t want or need a planner, your items may differ from what I received.

Planning + Stationery

2022 Spiral Planner Can you believe 2022 will be here in less than a month? We received a planner to start off the year with a bang, time to get those appointments and other important dates down on paper.

The front and back covers were covered with a layer of plastic that needs to be removed to reveal the smooth, clear cover. There were a couple of dashboards already in place.

Here’s the year at a glance.

Some holidays and conversions were next.

Each month had a planning section at the beginning and I am so happy to see a running to-do list along the side.

Here’s the month at a glance.

Here is what a weekly spread looks like. It continues this way for the rest of the year. There are a couple of pages in the back for noting contacts.

Planner Stickers in the shade Beignet are next.

They are sort of sheer and they can be placed in the spiral planner so they are always nearby. There are 146 stickers on this sheet.

Pocket Folder was also made to fit into the spiral planner and can hold cards, more stickers, page flags, or whatever else you can get in there.

Dashboards The dashboards go into whichever size planner you indicated when you placed your initial order — mine are sized to fit my A5 planner.

Semicircle Sticky Notes in Absinthe I love sticky notes, they are wonderful in helping me mark important pages that I wish to refer to often (or even for marking recipes I wish to try in cookbooks). What a cool pop of color in an otherwise subdued color palette!

Routine Card Set Planning to start the new year with new habits? Note them on these cards!

There’s one for am and one for pm and there is a space to note the time and habit.

Journaling Cards are small cards that can be used inside the planner, perhaps they can be placed in the pocket insert.

My Penspiration products came in a pack labeled ascribe.

Here’s what inspired the box for the month. The back of this card is a pen test sheet, shown below.

It also came with a journaling prompt card.

There’s space to write thoughts on the back.

Here are all of my new pens! I must say, this past month I have reached almost exclusively for the pens I received in last month’s box, they write so beautifully. I think Cloth & Paper can describe them better than I can, and keep in mind that colors may vary (and they aren’t in order according to the list, sorry):

The November  2021 Penspiration box includes:

Dianshi Triangle Highlighter | Light Retro series | Mauve | A lightweight, essential highlighter for the top highlights in your life.  Creates lines between 1.2mm-5mm. Pull cap.

Wenduo Dual Tip Highlighter |  Sweet Morandi | Peach Powder | Get the best of both worlds with a dual ended highlighter.  Chisel tip creates lines between 1mm-3mm. Brush-style tip creates lines between 1mm-2.5mm. Pull cap.

Homu Retro Series Gel Pen | Blue Black | An annotator’s new best friend. Indigo gel ink, 0.5mm conical nib. Pull cap.

Homu Retro Vintage Gel Pen | Nori Green | A classy yet unique addition to your pen collection. Dark forest green barrel. Cream clip. Colored gel ink, 0.5mm conical nib. Retractable. Ink color coordinates with barrel color.

Zenith Piloting Morandi Gel Pen | Sage | Wind down with a soft and light everyday journaling pen. Sage green barrel. Black gel ink, 0.5 mm conical nib. Retractable.‎ ‎

Here they are “swatched”.

My Cloth & Paper Planning & Stationery Box and Penspiration Box have me ready to conquer the new year in style. This subscription is perfect for those who like their planner and accessories subdued and stylish, yet never boring. I am ready to note all of those important future dates, appointments, etc. now that I have a planner and the dashboards will go into my A5 planner. The sticker sheet and pocket sheets are spiral punched so I can stick them into my 2022 spiral planner with no problems and keep them handy to use as needed. I love the pop of color from the half-moon sticky notes too. The pens, well, they are awesome to have on hand and one writes in dark blue ink, one in black, and one in green and the highlighters are peach in shade. All items are of great quality and are fun to use.
