Cupid Telegram Printable

January 28th, 2014 § 2 comments § permalink

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

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!

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. 🙂

Free Hanging Holiday Card Printable

This is not your ordinary holiday card. It can act as cheery wall decor or as a mobile. How fun would this be to receive!?

Hanging Holiday Card with reindeer “Vanna White”

It’s super easy to create. Just download our free Printable below and print out using a color printer. I used regular copy paper because that is what I had on hand, but I would recommend cardstock or heavy weight copy paper.

Cut out the rectangles and write your personal message in the blank rectangle. You can decide how many HAPPYs you want. I went with 4.

Printable assembled

Attach Divine Twine (I used Holiday) to the back of each rectangle using Petite Stickys (I used Red Stripes). Use 2 Petite Stickys on the last rectangle to keep it from tilting forward.

Printable back

And ta-da! Your card is ready to mail to friends or family or you use it as decoration at home. If you are mailing it out, it fits nicely in a #10 envelope.

Father’s Day, June 19th, is just around the corner. Do you know what you (or the kids) are giving the special dad(s) in your life? If not, maybe this  free Printable of Father’s Day coupons I designed can help. Just print, trim, fill in and give. The set includes 4 coupons, one in each colorway seen below, but you can print as many sets as you like.

Free Printable ~ Holiday Garland

November 28th, 2010 § 58 comments § permalink

Back in February I offered a free Valentine’s Day garlands printable and people seemed to like it. A reader asked about a holiday garland. Great idea!

This time around there are two sheets. You can mix and match the words to create your own sayings. There are several tiny images to place at the beginning and end of words + they also make great gift tags.

Use as gift tags too

You can use tape (yea! another reason to use Japanese Masking Tape!) to hang a garland on your front door, mantle or wall. One attached to a large wrapped gift would be nifty too.

If you download this printable, it would be lovely if you’d leave a comment. It’s fun to see who and how many people enjoy it. Feel free to spread the word. Enjoy!
