Baby Announcement/Christmas Card 2013

I figured if I was going to send out a Christmas card, I might as well as send out a Birth Announcement too! I did have a hard time designing my own card. Why is that? Maybe because I’ve been on Maternity leave or maybe because it’s always harder to design for yourself. I would have loved to have gotten gold foil on the card, but gold colored ink will just have to do. Happy Holidays friends! (I’m just a little late on this one! Ha ha!)

Day 20: Coloring Page, Design a Pattern FREEBIE

Want to keep the kids busy while you’re getting ready for the Holidays? Give them the assignment to either color the wrapping paper, or better yet design their own patterns on the wrapping paper. My daughter, who is almost 5, thought the assignment to design her own patterns was a little tough, but loved the challenge of coloring her wrapping paper in Christmas colors! She kept asking if certain colors were Christmas colors. Too cute! Enjoy this freebie!

Day 14: Free envelope liner

As promised, here is the matching envelope liner! I think that envelope liners really add a touch of “special” to your cards. I imagine the person opening this beautiful card thinking, “Wow, you really care about me, you even added an envelope liner to my envelope!” Ha ha! Just joking. But really, don’t you think it’s cute!

Enjoy, and if you missed yesterdays free Christmas card that coordinates with this liner, you can get it here!

Day 7: Anthropologie Inspired Gift Tags

I know this one isn’t a printable, but I thought it was worth sharing! As some of you may know, I love Pinterest. I often get swept away by all of the beautiful images and yesterday I found myself loving these ceramic gift tags by Molly Hatch for Anthropologie. I also noticed that they aren’t available to purchase any more either, so I thought, why not make my own for FREE! They are super easy to make and the best part is, you probably have everything you need to make them at home!

 

 

1. First start by following this recipe for the salt dough. I halved the recipe and it made 2 large cookie sheets full.

2. Roll the dough out to about a 1/4″ thick. Cut out small circles, about 1.5 inches. If you don’t have a cookie cutter, try a small cup. Then punch out a small hole at the top using a straw.

3. Next, using stamps (if you have some) impress them into the dough. If you don’t have stamps, just skip this part.

4. Bake in a 300*F oven for 25 minutes.

5. Let cool for 15 minutes.

6. Using sand paper, sand down the tops of the tags. And wipe off with dry towel.

7. Using a small sharpie marker follow the imprints from the stamps, or just wing it. The rougher looking the better I think.

8. Add twine, tie knot near tag. (I got my twine at Home Depot). Add to any gift to really add some personality!

 

I’d love to hear if any of you have made these before. Oh, and stay tuned for tomorrow! I’m adding some new printable wrapping paper to my shop (see below) and one of them will be free in tomorrow’s download.

 

Day 1: Printable Gift Tags with Calligraphy

Well, here’s what you’ve been waiting for!!! The first download of the 24 days of Free Christmas Downloads. If you missed last years downloads, go check them out here. I will be posting one more download today as well, so stay tuned.

These gift tags were so much fun to create. I spent much of my night using my mad calligraphy skills to address Christmas Cards and decided why not make gift tags with some of my calligraphy on them. I wanted to make them look as hand drawn as possible, so I created them on a kraft paper. They are super easy to create, just download the file below, print and cut them out on the small white dotted line. Punch a hole in the top center, which is also marked, and you’ve got easy tags to use to make your holiday packages simply lovely!

If you’re wondering about the wrapping paper. Well, it’s my secret and I may or may not share it with you! Whaa ha ha ha (maniacal laugh)…

Enjoy!

There’s a total of 8 gift tags on each page, but only 6 designs. I really liked the to/from gift tag and pattern one. I though those turned out super cute! Which one is your favorite? Where will you use your gift tags? Presents for the family, or as neighbor gifts? Please share, I’d love to know how you are using them!

 These gift tags are for personal use only and not for resale.
