A few Christmas folds

Here are a few Christmas book folding templates I have been playing around with.  The trees are simple, and could be tarted up with decorations – oooh, I wonder if you could add those tiny battery-operated LED lights to the fold somehow?  Hummmm…

The reindeer are maybe a little more tricky, maybe better for cut&folds.  But either way, if you do make one, send along a photo so I can see and if the photo is clear and in focus I might share it here. I never have time to fold all the designs so it is nice for people to see they work and what the end result looks like!

Grab that PDF here.

And just a reminder of a more challenging one:

and the design folded by Melanie.

You can find some other Christmas folds, including Rudolph, here.

Book folding templates for a Friend

I have had many requests over the years for book folding templates that say Friend.  I thought as I was making one anyway, I would pick three nice fonts and make it available to all. So here you go!

 

Here is the PDF to download

A word about the last one in particular.    I tried to fatten up the thinish font a bit by adding an outline. I have created and printed many templates this way and they always look weird on the screen, but trust me.  Overlapping areas of the letters show quite clearly on screen but, at least on MY printer, they do NOT show when printed.  If they do on yours, try draft mode or a lower quality print.

Have fun!

One more blank 2018 Calendar, 3 sizes

Another request, from Margaret who quite likes Kravitz Extra Thermal as a font choice.

Here is the CD sized, 2 a page version:

Here is the smaller sized, 4 a page version (about 3 inches wide by 3 1/4 inches tall:

Here is the very small, 8 a page version – although there IS a box around each month, when I print them on my printer, the box doesn’t show up.  That could be a good thing, if you want some flexibility in what size you cut them. You can cut them with quite a long top area for decorating, up to 3 1/2 inches for the whole block.  Unless your printer prints the lines….:

Have fun – hopefully in time for creating gifts! And if you do, I’d sure love to see a photo! My email is in the About Me tab at the top!

2018 DIY calendars (Decorate it yourself)

By request, I have a couple of 2018 calendars that you can decorate yourself.

First, here is a CD calendar sized one:

Download that here.

And the other is the smaller PL size cards:

And you can download that one here.

Hopefully this will give you a chance to get started on some Christmas gifts! Thanks, Kristi, for the nudge.  {wink}

Just a few Xmas tags for 2017

I tend to design things I need then share.  Here is a sheet of Xmas tags for you.  Hopefully you will find them useful!

You can download them here.

There are a few different styles so hopefully one of them will appeal! If not, I do have a ton of Xmas stuff in the menu under Freebies & Project Life Printables at the top.  Lots of tags there – here are a few (links to all, and more, in the menu link):

There are also some ornaments, a few cards, and more.

And although I showed this as a holder for swapping ATCs, I think it words perfectly as a gift card holder.  You can find the post on Twisted Cards here and here. You can see in the second link how to adjust the folding to accommodate a sideways card, which would pretty much equal a gift card.

As requested – 2018 Banner calendar

I haven’t been doing the Project Life printables like I once did, but there are loads of them available in the drop-down menu at the top.  Most of them are not year-specific, but the calendar ones are.  If possible, I do try to update ones when people request them.  Myranda asked that the banner calendar be updated, and she did so in such a nice way, how could I say no?

I left the same font, in the interest of speed, but I may try to change that if I do a 2019 version! Here is a reminder:

And here is the download!

Make sure you check out the calendar projects page.  There are some ways to use 3×4 cards that you may not have seen.  Hopefully they will increase the usefulness of these, even if you don’t do PLT

2018 and 2019 plain PL cards, as requested

Jess commented that she liked the Doily PL cards because they had a larger font.  Perhaps they are more readable without the large decoration, and it is easy to REMOVE something and re-create the PDF, so here they are:

Download 2018 version HERE

and

Download 2019 version HERE!

I also centred them in the middle of the card.  They could be enhanced by:

  • trimming a scant border and mounting them on patterned paper or coloured cardstock
  • trimming them with decorative scissors, maybe only top or bottom, and mounting on card
  • dusting distress ink around the edges
  • adding a stamped or sticker border top and/or bottom

You could also create a larger calendar with them by mounting the cards onto a much larger piece, with more room to decorate!

Be sure to check back on my calendar projects page for other ideas with 3×4 cards. This shows a larger calendar block but could easily be adapted to use cards like these:

Enjoy!

Prom?

OK, so I know this is well in advance of when it might be needed, but I have had more than one request for a Prom? template over the years.  I always intended to make a set available but never got around to it.  Then I had another email request and it prompted me to just do it.  I figure Prom?– askers might appreciate the extra time to wrap their heads around the craftiness required, make a test fold, and find the right, most significant book.

Not to appear too cynical but the book can be folded and hidden away.  And it’ll still work, even if the potential recipient changes over the course of the year.

Now, there are 7 fonts, but with the last one, I experimented with a top-to-bottom stretch to give it a bit more height.  I think it will work.  I quite like funky #5 personally.  But you should also know I have not folded any of these myself.  If you do, send me a photo. I’d love to add it to show people how they turn out! Grab the whole set in the PDF here.

I think it would be cute to present the book with a long-stem rose threaded thru the spine….just a thought…..

Book folding Templates – BIG Alphas

I am getting the sense that the serifs on the collegiate-style alphabet makes them less useful, and have been meaning to take the 20 minutes it needed to make a big, bold, plain alphabet, like this:

Only the I and the J share a page.

I also did the numbers (use the O from the alphabet for Zero) with a couple of extras:

Grab them:

Hope they are useful!
