Birthday Scratch Cards | The Pretty Blog
If you’re like me, you love giving gifts but aren’t the best at remembering people’s birthdays (I’m really terrible at it - I think I need to make a new year’s resolution!). having some scratch cards like these on hand are perfect. Make them up with different gifts, like ‘dinner is on me’ or ‘night out of the movies + your favourite snack’ or even ‘wash your dog’. Be creative and fun and make it fit your giftee. Then print out one of the many amazing free birthday cards linked here on S+T and they’ll never know you only found out it was their birthday because of Facebook!

Jelly Bean Embroidery | Wild Olive
Easter started in January this year. That’s right, next to the clearance rack with the tinsel, bon-bons and baubles were Easter eggs! Crazy. And it’s so hard - Easter is when they bring out Cadbury Creme Eggs and they are my weakness! Do they have these anywhere else? Hoo boy. Anyway, I’ve now started a healthy eating diet to loose weight, feel better, etc along with the rest of my family. It’s still nice to give gifts though, so I’ll be making some lovely little hand made items for my family instead (except for my niece - she’ll still get chocolate!) This super cute jelly bean embroidery pattern is perfect for my sister - how cute is that little one in the bottom with the frowney face?! All the sweetness, none of the calories!

Confetti Mad Libs & Activity Sheets | Love Vs Design

OK, I think we can all admit: weddings can get boring. It’s usually after everyone is finished eating and before speeches. Especially if the music is terrible! These printables are great because not only are they something to do for your guests, they’re also great for the Bride & Groom to keep afterwards.

Owl Library Card | Love Vs Design
If you go back through my archive you’ll see a lot of library card freebies! I love them! Even though I agree that computerising library systems makes life so much easier, I do miss those cards you had to stamp out in the back of books. It was always exciting when you realised when you were the first person to take out a book! Sigh. Anyway, now I can have that pleasure again with my own books. Now I just need a stamp and a late fee system…

Printable Floral Tags | Packagery
Have y’all got your gift wrapping boxes ready for the upcoming year? No? Just me?! Haha! Well I have started with some truly gorgeous paper I found at a cheap store (it was such a find, woo!) I even bought this awesome paper cutting thing that looks a bit like a tooth brush without the bristles - you simply slide it through the paper to cut it. It’s truly awesome. I think I need to now add these floral tags to my box. I love the vintage floral designs and I believe any recipients would love them too!

Book Label Printables | BerinMade via Poppytalk

At work we are in the middle of a mass book swap - we’ve all kind of realised that we all have the same taste in books (I’ve found out there are quite a few people who love Terry Pratchett - though I am apparently a ‘Practchett Trekkie!’) At the moment I am readng One Unknown by Gill Hicks, an amazing woman who was a victim of the London Bombings that I borrowed from my friend Julie. I have myself promised to lend a couple of books, but I’m going to stick these pretty labels in the front so that they eventually make their way back to me!
