My Free Printable Holiday Tags

Free Printable Gift Tags

One of my favorite yearly holiday projects is designing gift tags. I try to make a different set every year, and this year I had lots of fun with a teal, green, and pink palette and wintry illustrations. I shared this set of ten wintry holiday tags over at Domestifluff yesterday, and I thought that you guys might enjoy them, too. You can download the tags over at Domestifluff.

Collage Press Joyride

I first spotted Collage Press’ Joyride scrapbooking collection back in September, and I was instantly taken with the awesome vintage inspired palette and graphics. Plus, how cute are the little skiers in the top left pattern below?! The collection was inspired by a vintage Lifesavers ad, which just makes me like it that much more. The patterned papers in the collection are great for scrapbook layouts with a vintage feel and all sorts of fun, wintry paper crafts:

Carrotflower by Crystal Kluge

Carrotflower by Crystal Kluge

Crystal Kluge continually amazes me with her calligraphy and font work, and my jaw just about hit the floor when I saw her newest, Carrotflower. The font itself is so fun and whimsical, drawn from one of Crystal’s most commonly used lettering styles, and it will work well in all sorts of projects, from invitations and announcements to paper craft and scrapbook projects.

The coordinating Carrotflower icon sets — Invitation, Christmas, and Celebration — are an absolute must see for stationery and wedding designers. These super sweet illustrative icons are just perfect for wedding invitations, holiday cards, and so many other paper goodies. The Carrotflower font and all of the icon sets are available in the Carrotflower Stationery Kit, and you can purchase them separately, as well.

Ward Jenkins Rubber Stamps

My love for illustration with a retro or mid-century feel seemingly knows no bounds, and I’m so excited that more and more illustrators are making their work available in different mediums. Ward Jenkins, a Portland based illustrator whose blog, The Ward-o-Matic, features lots of great little behind the scenes tidbits and sketches of his work, is a must see if you’re interested in illustration and the process.

I was pretty jazzed to find out that Ward has recently released a collection of holiday themed rubbers stamps with Rubber Soul. The stamps are awesome, and rubber stamps, in general, are great because they can be used in so many different types of projects. You can use stamps to create custom holiday cards, gift wrap, and gift tags. Or you can incorporate them into scrapbooking layouts and use them to embellish envelopes. The possibilities are limitless! Oh, and, of course, rubber stamps make fantastic stocking stuffers for paper crafter friends and family. Check out the entire collection of Ward Jenkins’ rubber stamps at Rubber Soul.
