Free Thanksgiving Printables!

Here in Canada, it’s Thanksgiving weekend!  I’d say Thanksgiving is probably my favourite holiday – not just because it’s my birthday weekend, but also because I think it’s awesome to have a day of the year that’s specifically dedicated to giving thanks.  This year in particular, I’m thankful for a lot of things – my family, first and foremost… my new job that I love, being in Canada… and so very much more!

So, I decided to create a printable for you and your families to share what you’re thankful for!

I'm Thankful For... free printables at Superflash Creative!

 

These printables are configured to print on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper – there are two files – one that says “I’m thankful for…” and one that is blank.  You can use the blank one as a place card, or a note, or … well whatever you like.

Doctor Who Valentine's Day Cards by Superflash Creative

I designed them as a one-page printout, with all four cards on one page.  They feature my two favourite aliens – The Dalek’s and the Adipose (both looking unbelievably cute – I think it’s the eyes!), as well as the TARDIS and the 11th Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver.

Petting Zoo Party

Petting Zoo Party by Superflash Creative

Back in September, Jennie emailed me and asked if I would work on a party theme for her little guy, Caleb.  Caleb was going to have a farm-themed party, complete with a petting zoo in his own backyard!  I was super stoked to design the invitations, bunting, tented cards and more.  I thought about what best conveyed a “farm” / “animal”/ “country / “petting zoo” theme, as well as something suitable for a little boy.  I came up with red, navy blue and beige as the main colours.  I started by hand-drawing and scanning all the animals.  I drew a cow, sheep, chick, chicken, pig, and rabbit, and after I scanned them in, I coloured them digitally.

Petting Zoo Theme Invitation by Superflash Creative Jennie wanted to incorporate Caleb’s picture into the invitation, so I had her send me a photo, and then I drew some overalls and a hat.  I put them into photoshop and combined them all, and the result was a truly customized invitation that she wouldn’t be able to get anywhere else!  It’s little touches like this that really set invitations apart when your guests receive them in the mail!

There was a lot of information to deliver on a single flat card invitation, so with the top half of the card, I played with the colours and fonts to really convey what the party was all about.  Below the dots, I included all the information that Jennie needed her guests to know, including address, time, food and clothing options.

The “Yay or Neigh” text was Jennie’s idea, and I thought it was such an adorable touch!

A few of the farm animals were placed along the bottom of the invitation.  Between the animals and the bandana graphics on the invitation, party-goers would recognize a lot of the elements from the invitation carried throughout the party with various party printables.

Petting Zoo Theme Tented Cards by Superflash CreativeI created a set of tented cards to be placed on the food table.  The middle was left blank so that Jennie could write in the food options once they were decided.  She chose adorable names like “haystacks” for Rice Krispie Squares and “Chicken Feed” for Chex Mix.  It was super cute!

I actually created 5 pages of Bunting for Jennie – below is just an example of how it turned out.  I did one sheet of the plain bandana print in the 3 colours, a few pages with each animal taking centre stage, and I also spelled out “C-A-L-E-B” using the same font as his name in the invitation.  And of course, the Farmer Caleb picture made an appearance in the bunting too!

Some other elements that aren’t pictured here are a large “3” and “Happy Birthday” with the bandana print that Jennie used as decor and for the centrepieces.  I also included black and white versions of all the animals so that the kids could colour them.  Oh, and of course, there’s a thank you card… but you can’t see that until all of Caleb’s thank you’s get mailed out!

I really wish I had been able to attend Caleb’s party. I was told it was a blast for both the kids and adults alike.  And naturally, Caleb thought it was the best party ever!

Photos at this party were taken by local photographer, Rachel Price – hopefully she will have some on her blog soon to share with you all.

It’s October! New print available on Etsy!

October has always been my favourite month of the year. My birthday, Thanksgiving (in Canada), Halloween, all those beautiful fall colours, Pumpkin Spice Lattes… what’s not to love?! Living in Florida is a bit different – it’s still getting into the 90s during the day (nights are a bit cooler, but nothing like Toronto fall!), and there are pretty much no fall colours to speak of – everything here is pretty much green, year round (except when the leaves fall off the Frangipani trees and leave them looking like weird random sticks. That’s just not so pretty, if you know what I’m talking about!)

But anyway, October in Florida is awesome in its own way – especially this year, because I have my parents & one of my good friends from home arriving this week – and with plans for concerts and Disney, who can complain?!

To commemorate the awesome month of October, I created a print that is now available over on my Etsy store. It’s a high resolution PDF print, featuring one of my favourite quotes by Lucy Maude Montgomery from Anne Of Green Gables – “I’m So Glad I Live In A World Where There Are Octobers” – Aren’t we all?!
