After my winter themed Smitten Mitten bookmark printable a few weeks ago, I wanted to create something for you guys on the other side of the world who are most likely welcoming the sunny summer days.
Enjoy your Summer days, stay safe, and don’t forget to wear sunblock!
Moms are the queen of our hearts. That is why they deserve a special treat on Mother’s day that’s just around the corner (May 10th to be exact!)
This special Mother’s Day printable is created by Helen Cheung, a graphic designer and creator of PartiArti. Imagine how cute they would look on a home made apple pie for mom (or store-bought ones are okay too, I don’t judge).
You could also surprise mom with breakfast in bed. It doesn’t matter whether your spelling is Mum or Mom, because we have them both!
Grab your Mother’s Day Food Toppers from the download link below. Don’t forget to follow PartiArti on Facebook and Instagram, and check out her shop for more Pop culture inspired party goodies!

In case you didn’t know from the announcement on my instagram account, my DIY Fruit Coasters was featured in Nest Magazine’s first issue. Nest is a new publication that runs on the reverse of already popular RELAX publication that comes with The Canberra Times Sunday paper. I am delighted to be featured again inside the new Nest publication issued today with a printable exclusively designed for the publication. If you’re in Canberra, make sure to check out the article inside Nest, published today April 26th.
I hope that these printable Pink Flamingos will cheer up your Sunday and weeks ahead! You can download more Pink Flamingos printable templates here:
This year, Chinese New Year falls on February 19th (3 days away!). Since this is such a last minute printable, I thought I’ll keep it neutral so that you can use this all year round. Plus, you may learn something cool if you don’t know how to do it yet – your own DIY scratchie cards.
Making your own scratchies, or scratch-off cards is actually really simple. First, you need to print out your cards (download link is at the end of this post), and write your fortune/wishes/message on it.
These cards would be very cool as a pre-surprise message (i.e, write “you will get your dream car” just before you reveal that you’re actually getting someone a car. Woot!), or just to wish them luck on something they’ve been working on.
And then, prepare your mixture of two parts acrylic paint for every one part dish washing detergent. You may use any acrylic paint colour. But since we’re on the Chinese New Year luck & fortune theme, I decided to go with my gold acrylic paint.
Mix them slowly until well combined. Don’t stir too vigorously as you don’t want them to get lots of air bubbles.
Cover the area where you write your message with clear packing tape.
Paint on the coin/message area using thin and even layer, allowing to dry between coats. Continue painting until they are all covered. Make sure they are really dry. I actually left them overnight.
When your scratchie fortune cards are ready, put them inside red packets or mini envelopes, such as these printable CNY Red Packets I did for 2013, or the pretty Shabby Chic CNY packets I did for 2014.
Maneki Neko and Daruma are two symbols of good luck. Maneki Neko (Beckoning cats) is a very popular fortune and good luck symbol in Chinese and Japanese tradition, while the Daruma is a symbol of perseverance and good luck. So even if you’re not celebrating Chinese New Year, you can always give them out to someone who’s in need for some encouragement.

In case you don’t know, today we are celebrating Umbrella Day. Even though I am not sure why we need to dedicate a special day for Umbrellas, but I am grateful for their existence. Without them, what is going to cover us from horrible weather? And also, umbrellas make our drinks more pretty.
I have created these umbrella drink stirrers for A Subtle Revelry, a popular printable and DIY website based in the U.S.
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.
