I’ve been working on some new printable products for the shop! I’ve added some downloadable Christmas sets that include coordinating printable gift tags, stickers, and 8″ x 10″ art prints.
There are 2 sets. The first set I’m calling Fresh Vintage. The colors are sweet, lively, and a bit less traditional with some coral and turquoise in the mix. I really love how these printed!
I also created a second set with a classic Christmas color palette. Traditional berry red, pine green, and gold will look lovely with both modern and country decor.
Each set includes 12 Christmas gift tag designs, 10 sticker designs with 20 to a sheet, and four 8″ x 10″ art prints.
You can download a page of free sample tags here, or purchase the whole set from my shop.
You’ll need some heavy-weight paper, like card stock or presentation paper, for the gift tags and art prints. To print the stickers, you can buy some sticker paper sheets like these, or some full page label paper. Keep in mind that you will need to cut the stickers with scissors after printing.
The files contain several pages in PDF format, as well as printing directions.
It’s almost Christmas! I’m always late getting started with handmade gifts, but I got a jump start on making some printable gift tags this year! And I’m giving you two designs for free.
I thought it would be fun to design a couple of Christmas gift tags as a free printable, but once I got started I couldn’t stop. It was so much fun seeing these designs that started as doodles (which I made while waiting for during one of my kids’ regular appts.) come to life as a finished product.
Styling and photographing everything made me excited to wrap gifts and decorate. I hope they inspire you too!
In the end, I created two full sets of farmhouse style printable tags, stickers, and art prints! If you want all the stickers and art prints and coordinating gift tags, you can grab a full set for a few dollars in my shop.

Last week, I shared a zipper pouch that I made using the shibori indigo fabric I dyed. We also dyed a bunch of other things, including some cloth napkins and fabric yardage. Once the dye is mixed, you can use it for several yards of fabric, so we tried to get as much use out of it as possible.

Since we made the indigo dyeing a family project, I wanted to let the kids experiment with folding small pieces of fabric into different patterns. I found some packages of white cotton dinner napkins, perfect for dyeing. I ordered 2 packages, so we had 24 napkins to dye. They absorbed the dye well and were perfect for experimenting!
You can see we had a variety of patterns. I like how the napkins are all unique, but work together as a set. We gave some as gifts but kept most of them to replace the worn out cloth napkins I made several years ago.
Overall, the cloth napkins were perfect for indigo dyeing as a family. They are inexpensive, practical, and perfect for experimenting with shibori folding techniques.
Sewing is my primary creative outlet, but I also love to experiment with photography, surface design, printmaking, and other art. I recently entered some of my art and photography in the art challenges at Minted. If you aren’t familiar with Minted, it’s a company that sells art prints, stationery items, and home goods by independent artists and designers. All art is voted on by customers and designers, and Minted sells the best ones. Artists then earn a percentage of the sales.
Last month, my photo titled “Curious Calf”, was chosen as one of the editor’s picks. I love the sunlight in this picture and I’m thrilled that it was voted among the winners!
I’ve been very impressed with the quality of the items I’ve seen from Minted. Their paper goods are truly the best I’ve seen. When I get start getting Christmas cards in the mail, I can always spot the Minted cards immediately because the cardstock is so nice. I also ordered a framed art print a couple of weeks ago and I can’t wait to get it up on the wall. They run sales and share coupons often, which they will let you know about in their newsletter if you sign up.
I currently have one photo art print for sale through Minted and several submissions in current challenges.
If you are interested in my work at Minted, I would so appreciate it if you used my affiliate link to check out my photo and the other artwork!
