Christmas Gift Tags on Hooray Magazine | DESIGN IS YAY!

Hooray Magazine recently asked me to create some printables for their “x days ’til christmas” blog posts. Day 7 features some festive gift tags created by yours truly! There are 4 designs to choose from. My favourite is the one with the three penguins.

Hooray is this awesome magazine that celebrates the art of entertaining, from children parties to bridal showers. If you’re an insta-addict like me, you might have stumbled across their magazine covers styled and photographed by some of the best instagrammers around the world. The illustrations on their covers are so amazing that even though I’ve always pre-ordered the magazines before they go on sale, I can’t help but still notice them in the news stands.

Print n' Plan: Planner Calendar 2015 | DESIGN IS YAY!

If you’ve been following me on instagram, you’ll notice that lately I have a new obsession: personalised planners. I am so late in discovering this amazing world of planner community. Now that I have, I regret not doing it sooner. I love stationery and planning – so personalised planners are perfect!

If you’re a #planneraddict, you’ll love the fact that I’m going to share planner printables that I’m going to design for my own planner. I have created “Be Free” notepaper that would be perfect for your personal planner last week. This time, I have designed for you a double-sided planner calendar 2015. The A5 size is perfect for Kikki K leather personal planner which I am using.

Since I am still a newbie in the personalised planner community, I hope you guys will tell me in the comment section what sort of planner printables that you’d like to see on Design is Yay in 2015.

Be Free Printable Notecard | DESIGN IS YAY


Have you had one of those days when you’re so full of big ideas and your mind jump from one task to another? I find that it helps to write them all down so that I spend less energy in trying to remember those ideas and the tasks. Let your mind be free by writing it all down on this printable notepaper I’ve created for you to download. The grid style paper also allows you to draw your ideas instead of writing them down.

By the way, those lavender are from my own garden, which I never knew existed. When my mum came to visit in September, she saw this patch of dried plant and she gave it a good trim. Come summer, voilà.… they bloom and smell so good.

These notecards are A5 size (14.8 x 10.5 cm or 5.8 x 8.3″), so they are also perfect for personal planners as well. I’m using them for my Kikki K personal planner, I can’t tell you enough how much I love it.
