Fab Freebie: Bamboo-tiful

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries***

Who knew bamboo could be so beautiful? Well actually, the people behind Smock Paper did. They also know that bamboo is one of the most earth-friendly sources of paper out there. By relying on it, along with other recycled materials, and by incorporating other green practices into their shop, Smock Paper is truly a wonderfully sustainable operational located right here in the good ol’ US of A. Oh, and of course they make very pretty things.

You may have already heard of Smock Paper from our monthly sponsor shout outs, and if so you probably remember them for their stunning letterpress greeting cards, party and wedding invites, and the like. Well they’re here this week to give one of you a sweet $100 shopping spree while introducing some new products to amp up your note-taking, gift-giving, and memo-jotting adventures.

Just like all of their other products, these colorful items come with an eco-tastic spin. Like the memo pad above whose letterpressed bamboo cover protects 90 sheets of 100% post-consumer recycled paper. Or the cube of 700 sticky notes below that also comes from recycled paper.

While those items could dress up your office nicely, they’ve also got graphic beauties like double-sided wrapping paper, gift bags and even gift boxes that all boast punchy designs on recycled materials that would certainly dress up your next gift or look great in your home office.

Or are you high tech and rely on a voice recorder or phone app to help you remember stuff?

    BAMBOO ME…I keep notes in several different ways- I use the note pad on my phone, and jot notes at my desk on my notepad. Sometimes I use a notebook too!

  2. Mandy says


    I use either the drafts or notepad section of my phone, or a piece of paper that its in my purse if that isn’t handy. Anything around the house with free space is free game as well!! I definitely need to have a better process…

  3. Lilly says

    I keep notes everywhere! I have a notepad on my desk, in my purse, by the front door and in my car. I also use my iphone for grocery lists but I just love marking things off lists on paper, so I would say thats my favorite!

  4. Adrianne says

    My yellow legal pad beside my computer scribbled with weekly grocery lists and reminders is so not stylish. ; )

  5. Hilary says


    I am constantly scribbling something on a random piece of paper at work, home, or any time I am out and I want to remember a paint color, a decorating idea, or a new store I wanna check out online. Sometimes I write it in on my phone’s “notepad” but the old-school scrap works just fine for me!

  6. Brianna says

    BAMBOO ME! I use post-it notes, a phone app, or scrap paper. All depends on where I am and what’s accessible!

  7. Megan says


    I write notes everywhere – at home, at work, on scraps and on notebooks, before bed and when I get up. But I rarely ever look at them after writing them!

  8. says

    Bamboo Me!

    I tend to have random scrap pieces of paper floating around with my “to do” and “to buy” lists on them. Those Smock Paper products are beautiful!

  9. Lauren says

    I use a decorative notepads that I get in the $1 bins at Michaels. They have a magnet that sticks the notepad to my fridge. I am constantly making and checking off my “to do lists”.
