Spring Collection 2022 - Budget Friendly Miniature DIY Canister labels, FREE Planner & Idea Project Printable

Spring collection in miniature-  Don't you love looking at Baking Centers in kitchens? I love looking at the. Spring decorated ones, with pretty pastel bowls, pretty canisters, baking casserole dishes, cookie sprinkles in pretty jars...I love all of it. So I used that idea to create new miniature labels which you can get in my Ribbonwood Cottage etsy shop. They are fun, inexpensive and a great way to fill up those miniature kitchen shelves and cupboards. 

Spring colors.

Pretty little kitchen linens- I folded pretty fabric to represent kitchen linens and towels in this shabby cupboard.
Canister labels are available in my shop. Print, cut and adhere to little jars- 
I filled these with salt to give them a look of a filled canister-

Hand painted dishes and bowls- hand made polymer clay carrots and cookies…. And so you see the little bunny below?

I filled the cupboard with dishes and pots and pans. I absolutely love little bunnies.

I love making little things. 

So I have a notebook. A planner actually that I add papers to and take out-

Pages of ideas, seasonal ideas, holiday ideas. Miniature ideas and projects for ebooks-

I love planners and  I’ve been using a planner for just ideas, and patterns I’ve made, going to make, directions, measurements- and more. It’s enormous and it got me thinking  I need to create a printable for a crafters/creator/ designer where ideas can be written down, sketched, directions and instructions! So I’m working on that- 

So I have a new printable shop on Instagram and Etsy- @cottagechicprintables and it is printables and templates for small business creators. I’m loving all the designing!

When  I start with an idea,  I write notes, the original thought and then sketch…  

This is a rough sketch and all my ideas so I can be reminded what I was thinking- Because now I am printing out the Project and Idea Workbook planner I created for my Project Planner that you can print out soon, because it is available in my Etsy shop - April 10th 2022. But today you can access the free printable below. And start making a plan for  your projects! Get it out of your head and down on paper. Then start accomplishing, creating and making!

I have been creating planner printables, social media templates on Camva, and pattern templates.  It seemed that since I’ve learned some easier ways to create patterns it might be good to create a step by step guide and workbook for others to help them make their own digital pattern! It took me months to create my first digital pattern. So I’ve put together all my tips and techniques and created a pattern template so others could make their own cross stitch, sewing, jewelry making or woodworking pattern. Those are just a few ideas for people to make their own pattern.  

How about you? Are you a list maker? I’d love to hear!

I am now an affiliate for Canva before that even became a thing! I create all my patterns and miniature decorating ebooks that are on Amazon (Kindle), created in Canva. 

I love using it mostly because it is easy for us tech challenged people!

So for you I created a free template for you to try. If you don't have a Free Canva account it is easy- Sign up!

You can find your free Project, Idea & Workbook Planner Page. The page is white background.

I used the free account until I needed to upgrade for my patterns. I needed them to look professional, so I upgraded. And it was cost friendly to my fledgling budget. It still is.

I decided this. year to learn all I could about making things. Digital workbooks, Business templates, patterns. And if I can't figure something out, write down notes on what I do know. And then watch videos explaining how to do things! Haha I watch a lot of training videos. I am blonde but don't ever want to be dumb.

My son once said "Mom quit crying about not knowing how to do things, and just learn how." That made a huge difference. So my goal this year, and every year for the rest of my life is "Just learn how."

Do more! Accomplish great things. Start learning how.
