If you have been following me for a while, you know I LOVE Lisa Glanz. I’ve basically purchased all her cute animal and floral illustrations the moment they come out. You can say Lisa is my woman crush. I totally adore everything that she does. Don’t believe me?
Here are some freebies that I’ve created using her illustrations:
Since I have so many of her works and love what she does, I’ve decided to include more printable freebies using her illustrations.
Today, I want to give you these super sweet and whimsical bear and friends gift tags.
You can print these on cardstock and just clip them on gift bags using clothespins.
Print them on sticker paper and stick them straight to the bag.
Or you can punch a hole and use string to tie the thank you tag to the gift bag.
Tie a nice tassel to turn the gift tag into a bookmark.
Lots of cute ideas, right?!
These gift tags are designed to coordinate with the bear and friends party invitation in the shop.
I’ve been wanting to do editable invitation templates in the shop for a while now. I was trying to figure out a way that you can customize it exactly how you like it without having a million back and forth conversations with me.
This week I discovered Corjl. It’s a free online editing platform for personalizing editable templates. There is no waiting for personalized proofs. You can edit your templates right away on your computer or mobile device after purchased.
You can edit my purchased templates until you are satisfy, download it to your computer and print them at home or at your local print shop.
The other great thing about Corjl is that you can view a demo of my templates. You customized the template to see if you’re comfortable using the online editing platform before purchasing it.
Here is the demo for the bear and friends invitation:
You can’t edit this freebie in Corjl as they don’t offer it to use with free printables. You can easily personalize these using Picmonkey or Canva.

Planning a party can take a lot of money and time. But most of the time it doesn’t have to cost as much as we think. The solution is use what you have or buy something really cheap and create something magnificent with it to decorate your party.
Today I’m going to give you 5 ideas on on how to decorate a party and wow your guests.
I hope you didn’t throw those tissue papers from your holiday celebrations away because you just wasted tons of good tissue papers and money for your next party.
By the way, I’m not talking about the tissue paper you blow your nose with. I’m talking about the tissue paper that you stuff into gift bags to hide the fact that you don’t have time to wrap the gifts!!! You know who you are!
Here are five ways to decorate your party with tissue papers!
Tassels will always be in style. They are super easy to make. Here are some awesome tutorials on how to turn tissue papers into tassels. Visit Purely Katie to learn how to make these tassels. Attached to a balloon and you got an awesome table centerpiece or a photo prop for a 1st birthday or gender reveal photo shoot. An awesome idea is to put something in the balloon to reveal the gender of the baby when popped.
Here is another way to use tassels. Make a tissue paper garland and hang them all over your house. If you’re doing a 1st birthday party, you can add pictures of the baby between the tassels with cute clothespins.
Make tons of tissue paper pom poms and flowers. Another really simple DIY. You can make them really big or really tiny for a doll’s party. Jennifer from the Crafted Patch Blog will show you how to make these in different sizes. These are actually fun to make with your friends over a little drink,like, tea. *wink*
Make these cute little flowers to use as a place setting. Attached a floral wire and put them into a little vase to make a table centerpiece. Or can also make party favors by attaching a clip and attaching a thank you note to it. Learn how to make them here.
You can simply layer different color tissue papers and hang them on a baker’s twine, yarn, or whatever string you have lying around to make a tissue paper garland. You can add a little more flare by snipping it however you want. Check out this multi colored tissue garland from Pizzazzerie. Make it shabby chic by folding these doilies over the tissue paper. Or put these over the tissue garland for Valentine’s Day.
This is a bonus cause if you want to make it this long it might take a while, but look how awesome the end result is. It would be so fun to make and see the guests face when they enter your house. Just make this over a movie marathon with the kids snipping lots of tissue paper. OH SO FUN, right??!!! Learn to make it from Oh Happy Day.
Planning a party can be stressful for a lot of people. I’m no exception. I’m actually horrible at planning parties. I’m great at pinning party inspirations from Pinterest, but not party planning. I design party printables, but I do not give lots of parties.
So I’m not here to tell you how to host a stress-free Thanksgiving party because honestly I have hosted a Thanksgiving dinner once. Luckily for me, we used live close to my parents and mom is a great cook so Thanksgiving was always at her house.
I’m hoping for the same this year even though we moved to a different State.
From all the Thanksgiving pasts at my mom’s house, here are some of the things I’ve learned on how to host a stress-free Thanksgiving dinner.
Always plan ahead even if it’s just a day before Thanksgiving!
If you’re really into planning and writing everything down, use these checklist and party planners.

You don’t have to make the traditional Thanksgiving food if you don’t like it.
If you hate mashed potatoes then don’t make mashed potatoes. Fearful someone will leave your party cause you don’t have mashed potatoes? Oh well, more food for you. Just kidding. You can always ask that person to make their version of mashed potatoes. Maybe you might actually like it.
My mom always make traditional Thanksgiving food because my cousins who came from Vietnam love her Thanksgiving feast. However, she also makes Vietnamese food like egg rolls, lo mein, or shrimp salad. She also bought some Russian food cause she lives in a Russian neighborhood.
You don’t need to make everything from scratch!
Are there anything on your menu that you can just buy and then semi-make it? For example, if you’re making pumpkin pie, you can buy pie crust instead of making it. My mom actually buys dumplings and Kale salad from a Russian store. Nobody cares that she didn’t make them herself.
Have family and friends pitch in for food!
You don’t have to be the only person making food for Thanksgiving dinner. Do a potluck Thanksgiving dinner, where everyone bring a dish. You just have to assign everyone a food category so you don’t have double. Potluck is always fun because you can sample how your family and friends make different version of the same food.
You can also have everyone attached a recipe to their dishes. This way people can just snap a picture of them to make at home.
Remember it’s about family and friends, not spending half of Thanksgiving day in the kitchen.
Plan your party ahead of time. Decide what you will need to buy and when to buy them.
Assign guests food to make or buy.
You can make whatever food you want for Thanksgiving.
Lastly, have fun with some silly games and lively conversations.
