Free "Let's Picnic!" Invitations

It is probably clear, upon viewing my last couple of projects, that I am a touch pre-occupied indulging in fantasies of the summertime. Please forgive me, I find that this helps me get through the cold winter months! So, for those currently blessed with beautiful weather and thinking of enjoying a lovely picnic or two, I'm hoping that these little invites I've designed will come in handy! The PDF contains 2 pages which includes the tag invitation and gingham pocket design.

It is 6mb in size so please be patient! For the tag- print out onto thick white card stock. For the gingham pocket I've printed onto thick glossy photo paper. Paper City Paris! Voilà, Paper City Paris!

Paper City Paris!

I’ve been working on this for a very long time now and had so much fun creating it. My kids have been watching me draw and sketch for two months, and they’re now huge fans of the city. They kept asking me, “When are the buildings going to stand up, Daddy?” And now every time they see a radio tower while driving in the car, they yell, “I see the Eiffel Tower!” Crafts.

Downloads. Under the Sycamore. When I started SnapShops nearly six years ago, I had no idea I would eventually get to know some incredible photographers who also teach various photography courses.

Under the Sycamore

Both of my SnapShop workshops (the phone and DSLR versions) are intro courses. I wrote both with the beginner in mind. Over the years, students have asked me about offering more advanced courses, but that just has not been on the horizon for me. As a result, it is important to me to find other workshops I can recommend to my students. Karen Russell‘s photography workshop (and lessons) are among my favorites to recommend students. So, for those that have a basic understanding of shooting in Manual, but want a better understanding of all that it takes to make a super sharp – in focus- shot, I highly recommend this course (139 page downloadable PDF). “Making the Shot Three: An In-Depth Discussion on Focus is an advanced photography course devoted solely to the topic of focus.

FREEBIES. It wasn't till I became a mum, that I understood the value of a cooked meal as a gift.


I mean I would give meals to other friends who had had babies, or were going through a rough patch, but until I had received a warm home cooked meal at the pointy end of the day with a newborn, did I fully understand how this gift is seriously one of the best. Do I hear an 'Amen', fellow frazzled mummy? I've gifted a couple of meals recently and when I went to package them up, I was reminded of these labels I did for one of those big cook things late last year. And well, they came in real handy again for writing up ingredients, instructions and serving suggestions.

Handcrafted party. I am ecstatic to share with you today’s Handcrafted Party feature.

Handcrafted party

The seriously creative Disney from Ruffles & Stuff is sharing with us a party she recently threw for her sweet daughter (and modeling assistant) Paige. I can not tell you enough how much I love everything Disney does… this party is no different. From homemade party hats to accordion style paper flowers she did not spend a dime on decorations. She created everything from hand and stayed true to her lovely homemade style. Handcrafted party, Ruffled style Although the party was moved indoors at the last minute the birthday girl was still celebrated under walls filled with beautiful handcrafted party decor.

Each girl was given an fashionable flower headband to wear. Last-minute christmas tags. I know everyone is busy wrapping (or perhaps still finishing) a few gifts. I'm here to help! These gift tags are a great way to use leftover fabric scraps. First, download this template and print it on some white cardstock. Here's what you need: your printed template, a ruler and an x-acto knife, a bone folder (in order to get nice crisp folds), a cutting mat, glue (spray adhesive or glue stick), 1.5” circle punch (or you can cut the circles with your x-acto knife.. be careful!) , a few cute fabric swatches (cut to roughly 1.75” squares), and a hole punch.

STEP 1: Cut out your tags (each template makes four tags) with a ruler and an x-acto knife, using the guides on the template. STEP 2: Take the four cards and punch out the 1.5” circle, as marked on the template (your circle punch will be slightly larger than the circle on the template). STEP 3: Apply glue to the entire wrong side (or back of the card) especially the edges.
