Happy New Year printables fans!

Here’s to another year of art, craft, baking and exploring – all with the support of ready to print downloads to help us look and sound a lot more competent than we are (or at least I am) at the click of a button.

Here’s also to continued foresight such as that which curtailed my ambition to label our Christmas printable series as an Advent or even a 12 days of Christmas series.  It’s almost as if I knew my new arrival would put in an early appearance and takeover our lives for the foreseeable future.

Here she is:


At 6 lb 10 oz, Willow Katherine was a perfectly packaged early present for our family and a very good excuse to put Christmas on the back burner.  If you’d been hoping for posts on Christmas jumpers, seasonal celebrations around the world and the nativity then come back in 11 months time and hopefully I’ll still be able to find the links then.

Meanwhile my printables searches may also have been taken over by all things baby…

IMG_2254.JPGIf you’re creating your own baby related stationery then click by A Typical English Home’s blog post Free Fonts for Baby Showers and Birth Announcements for a collection of links to typography that appealed to Angela when she discovered she was going to be an auntie.

IMG_2255.PNGI’m a big fan of Red Ted Art’s blog and craft projects but in Maggy’s (Free) Personalised Posters post she chooses to highlight the “ADORABLE personalised posters from Vertbaudet that are FREE to download and enjoy from their website”.  Choose your favourite design from a spring tree, jungle animals, butterflies, vehicles and the Eiffel Tower, add your information an then print it off as any times as you like – “it make a super sweet memento… You could even use it to personalise a baby announcement card, but I like the idea of having it framed and added to your child’s nursery”.

Those of us who aren’t just juggling the nappies, feeding and lack of sleep newborns bring with them but who also have an energetic toddler to throw into the mix might also be grateful of a way to entertain and include them in their sibling’s arrival.

IMG_2258.PNGDLTK’s Crafts for Kids has a range of custom greetings cards (and matching envelopes) available to create with a personal message including congratulations and thank you cards.  Themes available to select include dinosaurs, teddy bears and babies, rattles and storks.  Print out the black and white rather than colour version and your toddler can make the card even more personal by adding their own colouring skills to the design.

IMG_2275.JPGThe Free baby card printables from Naomi Skinner! hosted by Papercraft Inspirations also come in a colour and a black and white outline version ready to be coloured in and includes the text options “great news”, “congratulations” and “welcome little one” as well as “new baby” or you could just use the images to fit your own purpose.

And don’t forget to click on to our Paddington Bear printables post for a link to some baby shower printables designed by Leah from Mommy in the Mountains that were inspired by the most unusual bear.
