Here I am, as promised in my Van Der Spek Unboxing post, ready to share some ‘moving in photos’ as I transition from my old Filofax A5 Holborn and into my new lovely VDS. You’ll be happy to know that I took these photos in the light of day, so they are much better than the unboxing set!
Moving Into My New Van Der Spek
Here she is in the light of day: look at that stitching!
I got the binder without stiffener so it is lovely and bendy – just the way I like them!
So many pockets in that front section! And they hold a lot more than I was expecting, they look so neat that I expected that would be really tight, but actually they are lovely and large and easily fit everything I need.
The gorgeous Personal Filofax Teal Baroque for colour reference.
She sits completely flat right out of the box, without any training at all, and best of all, she still keeps the structured line of a beautiful old book.
It’s such a small detail, and one most people probably don’t even think about, but the closure flap even naturally sits away from the binder so you don’t have to keep moving it out of the way to write.
And check out the size of those rings!
Lovely gusseted back pocket – the perfect size to fit my Erin Condren perpetual calendar!
And here’s a look at my DIYfish inserts in the VDS binder (Planner Peace?!?)
Needless to say, I’m completely in love!
