Here are some ideas of how you can use these leather notebook covers (listed largest to smallest):

A5 size leather notebook

The A5 size leather notebook cover is the most popular size as it is both generous in size and has the most options available when it comes to adding a hard cover or soft cover notebook, sketchbook or diary inside. Use the A5 leather notebook at work or home (or both) as your diary / organiser, as a journal or bullet journal.

Basically, you can’t go wrong with getting this size as your first leather notebook, then adding to it as you find uses for the other sizes – as outlined below.

B6 size leather notebook

Similar to the A5 although a little smaller, is the B6 size leather notebook. This size is more popular with our American friends, however Australians have come to love this size too, as it has much more room than the A6 but is more compact than the A5. The only issue with this size is finding B6 notebooks to insert into the cover, however I have you sorted if you are after softcover B6 notebook inserts as I sell those too!

Fill your leather cover with 4 notebook inserts and use them for journaling, bullet journaling, as a monthly & weekly organiser, have one notebook dedicated to ideas & thoughts, or a house task list, shopping list, menu planner, holiday wishlist, personal wishlist or fitness and health tracker.

Slim (Standard TN) size leather notebook

The Slim size (otherwise known as the Standard TN leather notebook size) is such a sleek and stylish size. If you don’t mind lopping off about an inch from the side of an A5 size, then this size is not only stylish, but easier to carry around. Depending on how much information you need to input in your diary / organiser or how small / large your writing is – this size might just be what you need. I started off using this size and found it sufficient for a full 12 months. Although I LOVED the sleek size, I admit I was curious to try the A5 and so far, I have been enjoying the extra space.

If you’re not looking to use this as a diary / organiser, then it would be perfect for all your journaling needs. Whether you do gratitude journaling, art journaling, junk journaling, or need to keep your house keeping tasks and shopping list separate from your everyday A5 planner.

A6 size leather notebook

The A6 size leather notebook cover is half the size of the A5, and the 2nd smallest in the range. Being so compact, it can be carried in a bag without adding too much extra weight, or left on the bedside table. Some people like to use the A6 size as a full blown diary / organiser by using a day-to-a-page, rather than a week-to-a-page (or they have teeny-tiny neat hand writing, unlike myself!). This size is perfect for gratitude journaling, art journaling, junk journaling, health tracking or as a shopping list and menu planner. If you get the elastic closure version, you could keep your credit card tucked into the inside panel and even use this as your wallet / purse as well.

Pocket size leather notebook

Similar to the A6 although a little smaller, is the Pocket size leather notebook is the most compact of the range. Not recommended for use as a dated diary (unless using a day-to-a-page set up), the pocket size is perfect for all other uses such as a sketchbook, note taking & ideas, thoughts & journaling for well being, as a house keeping tracker, medication, fitness or health tracker, shopping list & menu planner, holiday & personal wishlist or a combination of them all.

In addition to the pocket size notebook inserts available here, the pocket size leather cover is also suitable for Field Notes brand memo books and the ever so stylish Blackwing brand Clutch notebooks.
