Most of the SCK Team keep a journal, whether it’s a bullet journal, planner, art journal or something in between. We often share kawaii journalling supplies and stationery (like this gift guide) but I thought it might be interesting to see which products we actually use. Check out our photos below, including shopping links.

I mostly use my journal for tracking stuff (like what’s in the post and how many days I go outside) but I’m also planning my next Japan trip. I use a Leuchtturm 1917 dotted journal which is covered in my own Redbubble stickers. I decorate the pages with washi tape and mostly use Twin Tip Sharpies as the wide tip is great for headings and the small tip for writing.
Here’s everything else: Saturn sticky notes & fruit clips (Paperchase past season) | Sumikko Gurashi magnetic bookmarks | Sumikko Gurashi mechanical pencil (similar) | bunny ruler (similar) | Japan stickers | Mt Fuji, Japan train travel and mountains washi tapes | stencils.

For almost all of my pages I use fineliners and stencils, with the pencil helping me to sketch the set up or titles. My writing is done with a Frixion ball pen, because I often make small mistakes and this ink is erasable. To add a touch of kawaii to the pages I use stickers, washi tape and sticky notes.
From left to right, top to bottom:
Kawaii character stickers | Bullet journal stencils (pack of 12) | Washi tape | Rhodia Goalbook Bullet Journal | Kawaii sticky notes | Pilot Frixion Ball Gel Pen (black 0.7 mm) | Kawaii vintage HB pencil | Stabilo Pen 68 (pastel colours) | Sakura Pigma Micron fineliners

I use a Recollections personal planner (they don’t ship outside the US; Dokibook is a good international alternative.) My favorite writing utensils are the Micron 05 pen, Papermate Flair felt tip pens, Pilot FriXion erasable markers, and Zebra Mildliners.
I’m in a Marumofubiyori phase, so I’m using page flags, sticker flakes, and a mini memo pad set featuring the character at the moment. I also love using felt paper clips; the ones pictured are from PinkieBows.
Lastly, my favorite part of a planner is accessorizing it with charms; I’m currently using the tassel charm I made for the tutorial featured on SCK.

My go to art journaling supply is this massive set of gel pens! I use sketch book picked up at the craft store for $5.
