I thought with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’d do a little round up of past Free Valentine Printables we’ve offered on the blog. Kind of one stop shopping, but it doesn’t cost you a cent.

Cupid Telegram Printable

It’s been a long while since I’ve introduced a new editable Printable for sale, but this idea popped into my head while I was brain-storming designs for the free 2014 Valentine’s Printables and I liked it.

New to the shop… Send a little love old school style with the CupidGram.

6 Free Valentine Printables

January 19th, 2014 § 18 comments § permalink

One of my 2014 intentions is to strengthen my creativity muscle, which means I need to use it more. So, I sat down the other day and came up with six Valentine Printables I hope you’ll enjoy. I tried to design each Valentine so that young and non-as-young could use them. I purposely left the word “valentine” off a couple of the designs in hopes that they will get used all year long. If you download one (or more), please leave a comment letting me which one(s) you download. It’s always nice to know what is getting enjoyed.

Happy (early) Valentine’s Day!
Whitney

Cross Stitch Gift Tag Printable

December 17th, 2013 § 1 comment § permalink

This year I’m going a little old school style with my holiday wrapping. I’ll be using my favorite stand-by wrapping paper (brown kraft paper) and embellishing my gifts with Divine Twine, maybe some washi tape and these Cross Stitch Gift Tags. The gift tags simulate linen with cross stitched holiday words.

FREE Cross Stitch Holiday Gift Tag Printable

I tried printing the tags out on plain copy paper on my HP ink jet printer and on card stock on my Epson ink jet printer. Wow! What a color difference. (See photo below.)

Cross-Stitch-pages

Plain copy paper from HP printer on left; Card stock from Epson on right.

I prefer the color from the HP, but I really wanted the tags to be on heavier weight paper which my HP can’t handle, so I ended up using my Epson for my final tags. Your printer may produce the colors a little different, but regardless, you’ll have some sweet tags to accent your holiday gifts.

Please leave a comment if you download them. I’d love to know if  you’ll be using the tags.

Have fun gift wrapping!

Perfect DIY Treat + Recipe Printable

December 5th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

What makes a DIY treat perfect? Well for me, it has to be made from easy-to-find ingredients, easy to make, quick to clean up and taste beyond delicious. This Toffee Chex Treat ticks all those boxes, plus it’s easy to share and it travels well (hello road trip).  To make myself feel better when I’m eating waaaay more than I should of this stuff, I remind myself that the cereal is vitamin fortified and therefore this is a nutritious treat. Yeah, right.

Chex Treats 2

Last year we made and packaged this candy-coated, addictive treat (no lie. this stuff is addictive. beware.) for our neighbors at the holidays.

Chex Treats 3

We used Middy and Bigger Bitty Bags, Colored Tags, Glassine Bags, and Divine Twine for the packaging. We lined the Bitty Bags with the Glassine Bags so the buttery goodness wouldn’t soak through.

Chex Treats 1

It was such a huge hit that I thought I’d share the recipe on handy recipe cards. Just download, print and cut. If you end up giving a batch away, you could attach a recipe card to your packaging. That way it’s a gift that keeps on giving.

Tip: I’ve substituted Crispix for Chex if that is what is on sale. Still turns out great!
Enjoy!

XO,
Whitney

Disclaimer: I did not invent this recipe. I got it off the internet a dozen or more years ago. It is called “School Fuel” on the Chex.com website. I renamed it Toffee Chex Treats because I think it describes it much better. The original recipe calls for chocolate to be drizzled over the treats, but I’m more of a purist and do not like chocolate interfering with my toffee taste. 🙂
