I'm a little upset I haven't even had this journal a week and the pen loop fell off. I would exchange it however, I've already started writing in it, and there's no way that I can find to contact the seller. The journal is still functional of course, but I am disappointed in this. The loop hole looks like there wasn't much glue on it to bind it to the journal.
Okay, for the cons now. I guess I read the description wrong because when I think semi-soft I think a nice cover with a little flex to it, something that will make it easy to slide in and out of a purse or bag. This cover is clearly stiff cardboard underneath and the one thing about the journal that feels extremely cheap. The material used on it is nice and soft at least but it hardly feels like most synthetic leathers and more like rubber to me. I still like it but no one is going to pick up this book and think it's anything but plastic. Also, it's only been in my work bag less than a week and there are already scuff marks on it. In general the cover also adds a lot of bulk to the whole book which is supposed to be portable. The journal does mostly lay flat, meaning the pages open nicely but the thick spine gets in the way of true flatness when on a table, which you won't notice until you start writing on it and it wiggles. Books aren't waterproof, and so while I think the waterproof cover is a cute selling point but I'd rather see a little water resistance for accidental splashes and a less chunky product.
In all, it's a nice journal with handy features (did I mention I like the numbered pages and two ribbon marks?) that feels quality made but next year I'll be picking up another brand that has a more flexible or at least less chunky cover... unless they come out with a soft or flexible covered one, then I'd be back for more.
I bought one of these back in April, and I LOVED it. Paper was a great color (off-white/cream), the dots and page numbers were visible but light enough to not be a hindrance, and the paper weight was PERFECT (100 gsm) - thick enough to not ghost too badly and thin enough to have lots of pages that feel like paper - not card stock. I spent AGES looking for a notebook with the right paper thickness (Leuchtturm is tissue paper - most others use card stock). I'm not playing with water colors - I just want a normal ink pen to not to be completely legible on the verso pages.
My ONLY complaint was that the colors/design were for a 12 year-old girl, so I was super excited to see a nice navy blue color. I was so excited to get my new notebook (just in time to start a new one on my birthday), only to find really thick paper inside...160gsm.
Literally card stock. It's ridiculous.
Only 150 pages instead of the old 200. It's WHITE paper with DARK dots and page numbers. Page numbers actually look a little like navy blue. At first I thought it was the new color, but according to the product description even the teal with pink band (what I got in April) is now 160 gsm.
I know it's ridiculous to be upset about a journal, but if they are going to significantly change their product they should make it clear using a different product page.
- numbered pages
- grid center point marks
- two bookmarks
- really thick, white paper - it's like cardstock
- bubble font and "cute" designed wasted pages

This is a hard review for me to do as I absolutely loved my first scribbles that matter so much that I got another for my next bullet journal but I have found so many issues with this new one. As a positive the lavender colour is beautiful and I like the mid page dividers with the lines and pluses. The pages are thick and have minimal bleeding or ghosting but that is where the good points stop.
The paper quality is so much lower than in my last one. My main issues with the paper is that both the paper and the dots repel some pen inks so they take forever to dry or come away when I erase the pencil outlines behind the ink. However the pencil doesn't erase easily and erasers can leave shiny streaks across the page. These streaks end up repelling any watercolour I use. The pages also seem to grab hold of fingerprints so these also repel watercolours like I've put was down wax or something. Just not impressed with this one. Very sad.
Was mir als erstes auffiel war, dass die Farbe viel weniger "intensiv" war, als auf dem Bild bei Amazon. Ich war dort bereits leider recht enttäuscht, da mir die Vorschaufarbe unglaublich gute gefallen hat. Statt mehr ins Lila geht das Buch eher Richtung mattem Blau.
Der Deckel an sich sieht uneben aus und ist an manchen Stellen (besonders am Buchrücken) dicker und an anderen wieder dünner. Das elastische Band zum Zusammenhalten ist wie beim Leuchtturm sehr sinnvoll, drückt aber dermaßen in das Buch ein, dass dort unschöne Druckstellen und Einkerbungen sind. Das ist bei meinem Leuchtturm, selbst nach einem Jahr Nutzung, absolut nicht der Fall. Die Unebenheit des Buchrückens stört mich dazu ungemein.
Beim Aufschlagen des Buches fiel mir als erstes die schief aufgeklebte erste Seite auf. Gerade beim Bullet Journal soll es für mich auch hübsch und ansprechend aussehen. Leider sticht einem so etwas immer wieder ins Auge.
Zu dem Aufbau und den Seiten sage ich an sich nichts, das wurde bereits in vielen anderen Bewertungen erwähnt. Die Qualität des Papiers scheint gut, es ist sehr glatt, wodurch sich mit Brush Pens und Markern sicher besser arbeiten lässt als mit Buntstiften, aber hier muss ich erst noch ausprobieren. Sollte das irgendwas an meiner Bewertung ändern trage ich es nach.
Leider sind auf 2 bis 3 Seiten unschöne Flecken auf dem Papier, werde ich wohl überkleben müssen, auch wirken manche Seiten knittrig und ungrade.
Das Papier an sich ist aber merkbar dicker als das des Leuchtturms, grade das Ghosting beim Leuchtturm hat mich dermaßen gestört, sodass ich nach einer Alternative gesucht habe. Ich denke dass wird mit den selben Stiften kaum bis gar nicht auftreten, gerne reiche ich hier noch etwas nach, sollte ich das Scribble That Matters Buch tatsächlich behalten.
An sich ist es ein schönes und sicher gut funktionierendes Buch, wenn man über Schönheitsmängel hinweg sehen kann. Das rechtfertigt jedoch nicht den Preis von 18€ welche ich bezahlt habe. Dafür erwarte ich eben keine bis sehr unscheinbare Schöneheitsfehler, so wie beim Leuchtturm, welches optisch einen viel hochwertigeren Eindruck macht.
Positiv hervorheben möchte ich noch dass die Stiftschlaufe extra kommt und daher auch weggelassen werden kann. Ich benötige nämlich keine, da das BuJo die meiste Zeit zu Hause verbringt und ich meine Stifte dort separat aufbewahren kann. Wer eine braucht kann sie sich scheinbar recht unkompliziert ankleben.
Danke fürs Lesen bis hier her, ich helfe gern sollten noch irgendwelche Fragen sein.
These are I admit well made and feel quality note books. But what shocks me is the cost £16.99 as of today 22.1.2019 for something that can be picked up from a shop for well £3. I also don’t get the need for the dots. Although I am told this is to keep writing neat. This is a note book. When asked to buy I expected something special to come. This is for me an average notebook at a very high price. Save your money and pop into a high street shop to buy a standard notebook.
However, I have just received and unboxed my notebook to find myself disappointed with the condition. The elastic was twisted inside the plastic wrap so now the band doesn't sit flat and neatly on the cover of the journal but is all puckered and wrinkled. And there is an ugly indentation from the ribbon on the cover itself.
I know this is only minor damage but when you're planning to use the journal for several months you at least want it to arrive in good nic, especially when you have deliberately gone for a pricier item to ensure its good quality.
I love the feel of the notebook and the paper feels such good quality and so much thicker and brighter than my leuchtturm1917s. Just so gutted it came with a slight damage 😣
- Perfect page colour. I love the off-white shade...not too creamy and not too stark. The dots are an ideal darkness as well. Very easy to see while writing but blends into the background when you're done.
- The cover is beautifully soft "vegan leather". It feels very lux.
- I love love love the page markings inside. Really helps in building a spread when you can immediately identify the centre of the page and halfway marks.
- Of course the added features like numbered pages, index, key page, pen test page and mindfulness page are amazing.
- Whatever coating is on the page now is terrible. Sure, I can use any pen I want without bleed through - that part is fantastic. But my inks NEVER DRY. I've tried every pen - Tombow MONO, Pigma Microns, Inkjoy, regular cheap gel pens, EnerGel, Sigma. All of them smear, or transfer. And I'm not talking smearing with highlighter (although that happens too), I'm talking accidentally brushing against the letters with my finger causes enough smearing to make my words illegible. It's awful. I have an older STM journal that didn't have this issue, nor did my original B5 Bullet Planner.
- I chose a light colour cover (Pastel Pink) and after four days of use, it's already looking absolutely awful from being only in my purse or on my desk. While the colour is gorgeous, it's not cleaning off (I think some of the marks are actually ink smears from my hand due to the aforementioned issues with dry time).
- The cover of my book came dented, but I understand that is not STM's fault so much as the way it was shipped, in just a bubble mailer. It would be nice to see these shipped in a small box so the corners do not get damaged. Unfortunately the plastic "box" it comes in isn't enough to protect from careless mail delivery.
All in all, the journal is well thought out and the perfect companion for bullet journaling but I can NOT get over the smearing. It's so upsetting to see a spread you spend good time on get ruined, even after sitting to dry.
This time, I received the classic amazon envelope but the journal was inside a transparent plastic box. I am not sure if this was done by Amazon or the STM company ( i guess the latter), but it was for the better. No scratches, no bumps or whatever. Excellent product in excellent package!
I totally recommend it for daily use as it is sturdy enough.
This journal has Lovely thick paper, with little to no ghosting or bleeding. Two book marks are always handy. The paper in this journal has a texture to it and is not as smooth as the Dingbats, which I prefer. The paper is also white, where as the Dingbats is cream. I do really like that the pen loop is secured with a metal stud at the back and is still going strong- the Dingbats pen loop was glued in and it fell out after a few months.
Although the cover is lovely and smooth and a nice texture, it does scratch easily and leaves slight marks. I tend to put it back in the cardboard cover it comes in now if I want to transport it in my bag which makes it more bulky. The pages are also narrower in the Scribbles That Matter than the Dingbats, which did bother me at first, but I have gotten used to.
Over all, I find this to be an excellent journal and will be happy to continue using it.
