Today I want to share the new Dreamsicle collection created by Carolina Pad designed by JACK!E to benefit Girls on the Run International. The collection is so pretty and feminine, in shades of bright pastels with trendy designs featuring flowers, butterflies, and cherries. I would love it even if it didn't support such a good cause.

Commerce with a Conscience™, a partnership between Carolina Pad and JACK!E, combines the everyday products from Studio C and the extraordinary design from Jackie McFee to create a communication platform for non-profit organizations. The first Commerce with a Conscience collection – the Kendall Kollection – was launched in 2008 in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
This is the inside of the binder, shown at the top, far left of the top photo, with the tab dividers inside. They are so pretty with bold patterns like circles and stripes.
The dividers aren't just printed in full color, with a variety of patterns from the collection on the front. There is also a lined space for jotting notes on the back. My favorite feature is that the last one in this set of five has a folder on both sides. Here's the inside of the 1 subject notebook, like all the Dreamsicle products it has a quote from Molly Barker, the founder of Girls on the Run, "The only requirement of having a dream is believing in it", printed on it. I love that it's in full color. Since this is a product you can personalize, it comes with a sheet of stickers.Isn't the journal with ribbon closure pretty? Inside the pages are lined and edged with pink. Once again you can add your monogram and comes letter stickers, just like the folder above. It's so fun and girly, just waiting for all those "Dear Diary" entries. The composition book is also super cute, even the binding is pink! That's my favorite part☺
I am so happy to be partnering with Carolina Pad again, I know from my last review that one of my favorite products by Carolina Pad is their Ideal Book. As you can see, I had to immediately add my first inital to the cover. I'm not sharing this one! At about 9"X7" it's the perfect size for quick notes or for a journal. The pages are perforated for easy removal, great for shopping lists.I really like how in the front is a plastic pocket page, with a spot for a computer disk. It's also the right size for keeping track of receipts. There are two more plastic dividers so you can use it for several projects at once.
From a self confessed office supply junkie, trust me, staying organized never looked so good! It truly is time to celebrate being a girl! This would be a great collection to send your daughter back to school in style and will be sold in Michaels and Wal-Mart from June to September 2010. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to support Girls on the Run.
