Holiday Freebie: DIY Printable Valentines - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Hello, everyone!

I’m coming at y’all today with a very exciting freebie! If you’re a newsletter subscriber, then you’ve already seen these printable valentines! If not, you should sign up for my newsletter so you can get first access to releases like this!

Holiday Freebie: DIY Printable Valentines - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

This week’s adorable freebie features five printable valentines — three with honey bees and two with conversation hearts!

I love all five, but I’m partial to the honey bees! They are just TOO CUTE!!

You can sweeten up your cards by taping a piece of candy on the inside or outside of each valentine! Actual conversation hearts are an acquired taste so I wouldn’t suggest those but they would go quite nicely with the second set of cards! 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day Art Print: Free Download

Happy February!

Can you believe that January is already over?! I sure can’t!

Just like last month, I have a holiday themed art print to share with you!  Valentine’s Day is obviously this month, so that’s the theme of this digital print!

I’ve made this print in both a horizontal and a vertical version.  The vertical version is pink watercolor and the horizontal version is red!  They both measure 5×7, but you can always add a 1.5 inch border around each edge to transform the print into an 8×10.

I have three other Valentine’s Day digital art prints in my shop that coordinate perfectly with this one and together create a simple + chic collection.

Check them out!!

Just like with my sticker printables, these art prints are for personal use only.  You may not re-sell, redistribute, or claim these works as your own.

When posting on the internet, please give credit to Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes.  Feel free to tag me (@pinkbowstwinkletoes) on Instagram when posting my printables!  I would love to see how you’re using them!

To download the PNG file:

  1. Click on an image above
  2. Click “view full size”
  3. Right click and save image
  4. Open saved file and print
  5. ENJOY!!

If you skip step 2 and don’t click the “view full size” button, the image will save in a much smaller format and will print incorrectly.

If you would also like a the PDF files, you can download them here, PBTT Happy Valentine’s Day Art Prints.


I hope you enjoy these prints!

Happy (early) Valentine’s Day!!

Cupcakes and pink are a two of my favorite things, so I knew they’d be just perfect paired together!

The pinks match perfectly with the February and May themes in the vertical Erin Condren LifePlanner!

DIY Planner Dividers: Personal Size

Hi everyone!

I have a super easy paper crafting project for you today!

I recently purchased a kikki.K personal planner!  I love my new planner, but I didn’t love the dividers that came with it.  I’ve seen so many cute handmade dividers online, so I decided to make some myself!

IMG_8265

Here’s a little sneak preview of the finished product!

IMG_7782

Supplies:

  • Large paper dividers or file folders
  • Paper cutter
  • Glue dots
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Dividers that already fit your planner
  • Decorative papers and appliques
  • 6-hole punch (find one here)

The dividers I have came with seven tabs.  I knew I only wanted four tabs for my dividers, so I had to make a few adjustments to make the dividers fit and not look awkward!

IMG_7785

You’re going to start by tracing your first divider onto one of the large file folders.

IMG_7786

Leave a little space at the bottom of the first tab.

IMG_7788

Take the next divider “in line” and scooch it up a little to create a larger tab for your first divider.  Finish tracing the rest of the tab.

IMG_7790

This is actually a picture of the second divider, but you can still see what the divider tabs should look like.

Once you have the dividers drawn out, cut them with your paper cutter.  I cut all the straight edges first.

IMG_7792

At first, I wasn’t sure how I was going to cut the tabbed side of the divider.  I decided to cut part of it with the paper cutter and the actual tab area with a pair of scissors.

While using the paper cutter, I had to be very careful not to accidentally slice my tab right off!  To avoid that happening, I stopped the paper cutter about half an inch from the tab on each side.  I then finished cutting it with some scissors.

Getting the inside corners perfectly rounded was pretty tough, but I think I managed okay!

IMG_7795

Here are all the cut out dividers!

You may have noticed that there are five papers in the picture!  About halfway through my project, I decided to make a dashboard to match my dividers!

To make the dashboard, just line up all of your original dividers, trace around them, and then cut it out!  It’s super easy!

IMG_7826

I love the striped, metallic dividers, but I wanted to add a little something else to them!

I found these fun Project Life cards and cardboard appliques at Hobby Lobby.  When I saw them, I knew they’d be perfect for this project!

IMG_7800

I played around with a few different design options.

IMG_7829

Here’s what I decided on!

IMG_7832

I used some adhesive, glue dots to attach all of the decorative items.  I’m rather heavy handed with every kind of adhesive, so you may not find this many glue dots necessary! 🙂

IMG_7918

Now it’s time to punch the holes!  Once all of the holes are punched, your dividers are complete!

Dividers

Here are all of the finished dividers!

Aren’t they so cute?!  I love the light pink with all of the gold accents! So classy!

IMG_8244

I absolutely love the way the dashboard and dividers look with my light blue planner and matching, pink planner clips!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little tutorial!

Happy Crafting and Happy Planning!

Pink Bow Planner Stickers: Free Printable

Hi everyone!

I have another free, planner printable for you!

This one is pink bow themed!  I love pink bows (thus my blog name) and couldn’t resist making a sticker sheet with a bunch of them!

I’ve been trying to make a bow in Adobe Illustrator for months now and have finally succeeded! YAY!! 🙂

IMG_7870

I’m going to use the majority of these stickers to indicate different blog things I have going on like writing, crafting, taking photos, etc!

I absolutely LOVE the bow checklists!  I think they add a little something to the whole sheet! I can’t wait to use them!

Screen Shot 2016-01-18 at 9.37.28 PM

Here’s a closer look at the printable.

The pinks of this sheet will perfectly match the February colors in the vertical Erin Condren LifePlanner.  They’d be a perfect addition to your Valentine’s Day spread!

You might be wondering about the way the smaller bows are spaced out a the top of the page.  Well, I spaced them out a little to give myself enough room to cut them with a circle punch!

IMG_7876

I don’t have a Silhouette, so punches help me cleanly cut out the more detailed stickers.

IMG_7872

I use a Fiskars paper cutter for most of my stickers.  After cutting away the excess, I use scissors to round corners and trim the little things.

To see some more of my printing and cutting tips, check out last week’s printable!

IMG_7878

Here’s a little mock up of how I might use some of these stickers in my EC LifePlanner.

I recently bought a kikki.K personal planner for all my blog scheduling.  Most of the stickers on this sheet will fit in my kikki.K as well.  The only exception would be the decorative full boxes.

I hope you enjoy this printable!  Don’t forget to tag me (@pinkbowstwinkletoes) on Instagram and use the hashtag #pinkbowstwinkletoes when you use these stickers!

DIY Confetti – Easy and Fun!

Hi everyone!

I have a fun and SUPER easy craft for you today!

I’ve been wanting something to add a little pizazz to my Instagram photos recently, so I decided to invest in some confetti.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to buy exactly what I wanted, so I decided to make my own!  Making my own definitely didn’t save me money, but that’s okay!  I got exactly what I wanted!

IMG_4007Supplies:

  • Paper punches
  • Cardstock
  • Scissors

IMG_4016Simply use the punches to cut out lots and lots and lots of your desired confetti shapes!

I found it the easiest to start with a whole sheet of cardstock, punch out a complete row, and then cut that strip away.  In the end, you’ll end up with a bunch of punched out strips like the ones above!  You could also cut the strips and then punch.  Whatever floats your boat!

IMG_4051I went to town and punched out lots of different shapes!

I bought my punches during JoAnn’s most recent scrap booking sale, so they we’re out of a few punches that I wanted. 🙁

I still managed to get my hands on a few fun ones!  As you can see, I got a medium heart, a dove, and a small circle.  I also got a small heart.  I just haven’t made any confetti with it yet.

IMG_4036Look how cute! Doesn’t it just jazz up the picture?! 🙂

Happy Crafting!

DIY Hand Embroidery Motif – Happy Hedgehog

Hi everyone!

I have another embroidery project to share!

I made this little hedgehog for my best friend, Kylie, for Valentine’s Day!  I know that Valentine’s Day has passed, but I couldn’t post my tutorial until after I gave it to her!

IMG_8374

Supplies:

  • Doodle Stitching The Motif Collection by Aimee Ray (Get a copy here!)
  • Embroidery hoop (I chose a 4″ hoop)
  • Embroidery floss
  • Needle
  • Pencil
  • Fabric (I used muslin)

IMG_8377DMC Floss Colors:

  • 321 – red
  • 840 – light brown
  • 838 – dark brown

As you can see, I had an issue with 838!

Somehow, my thread turned into a delightful, brown knot!  So much fun! 😉

IMG_8144
Design courtesy of Doodle Stitching

We’ll be using this little guy from the Woodland Animals section of Doodle Stitching! IMG_8345Start by hooping your fabric and tracing on the hedgehog motif.

I tried my best to center him!  If it ends up really crooked, you can always go back and fix the fabric! IMG_8349Using the light brown thread and the Back Stitch, we’re going to stitch around the body. IMG_8352Continue stitching up and around his back. IMG_8353_2Use the dark brown thread and the Satin Stitch to create his eyes and nose. IMG_8359_2The spines are very easy to stitch.

Using the Straight Stitch, start at one end of the pencil line and stitch to the other.

Each spine should be made up of only one stitch. IMG_8360_2Continue adding spines.

After adding all the spines that we’re traced on the fabric, I filled in a few holes. IMG_8363_2Time to add some little hearts! IMG_8365Each heart is made of two Lazy Daisy stitches. IMG_8368Once all the hearts are added, our cute, little hedgehog is complete! IMG_8384Happy (super belated) Valentine’s Day!! Bow signature pink
