Carolina Pad Back to School Giveaway

Recently Carolina Pad asked if I would be willing to do a review of some of their Studio C collections for Back to School.  The Studio C collection products can be found at Walmart, Target, Staples, Office Max, Michaels, CVS and more retailers nationwide!

I love stationery products, notebooks, pens, pencils, and can never have too many of them around the house.  Last year I picked up some of the Carolina Pad ‘Eye Candy’ supplies at Target to add a little color and fun to my desk space.  As is usual of Carolina Pad they have a large selection of patterns this school year to choose from, as well as supplies covering many different functions.

Carolina Pad’s Studio C collections include; Hot Chocolate, Techno, Royal Twist, Zensational, Sasquatch and Dreamsicle.  My personal favorite of these collections is the Hot Chocolate, the color is as rich as its name, and the print just as fun as hot chocolate is to drink!  The Techno is definitely reminiscent of computer bytes, and Amber really liked that one.  A lot of the collections are very ‘girly’, but Techno has a few products that are a little more gender neutral and suitable for the online generation.  Royal Twist is a pattern that has an old world feel, with a pop of color added to it for fun.

Within the range of the collections I was sent: a 1-Subject Notebook, 2 Pocket Folder, 1″ Binder, Composition Book, Ideal Book and Journal.  See what I mean by covering all the functional bases?! I love the 1-subject notebook for the singular reason that it has an elastic attached to the cover that you can extend around the notebook, so that when you toss it into a backpack or bag, the pages don’t get all bent and torn.

I also really like the Ideal Book I was sent.  It has tabbed dividers separating it into 3 sections, an inside pocket as well as perforated pages.  It’s “ideal” (great name for it!) to throw in your bag since it’s just 8.6″ x 6.5″, for taking quick notes at extra-curriculars, PTA meetings or Homeschool Co-ops, or just so you have something larger than a post-it to write on!

All of the products I received are of good quality and a nice change from ordinary solid colored supplies.

Carolina Pad is giving one of my readers a prize pack similar to what I received.
