Looking for some Chinese New Year papers for crafting? Download these free printables and print them yourself at home!

Download these free printable Chinese New Year Year pattern papers.

Chinese New Year is the celebration of the beginning of a new year in the Chinese calendar. Besides using themed paper to document your family memories there are lots of fun papercrafting projects for everyone to participate in.

Whether your family is Chinese or not, it’s always nice to learn about different cultures and traditions. The Chinese New Year celebration involves family gatherings, lots of eating and celebrations in the form of lion dances and fireworks, but also gifting red envelopes of money to share good fortune and prosperity.

It’s a festive and upbeat time, so the emphasis is on celebration, which is a good thing for everyone. Have  a fun time, recognizing the culture and enjoy the festivities.

Download Free Printable Chinese New Year Papers

I decided to create some Chinese New Year themed patterned papers that would work great for memory keeping, but also for other paper crafting projects. Maybe you want some paper lanterns for decoration or making your own envelopes for gifting. My kids always enjoy cutting papers, collaging and making dragons or paper lanterns.

My love for digital papers is around accessibility and ease of storage especially. You can save all the papers you want for a future date on a hard drive and print as many copies as you need at the moment, without ever worrying about using up all your favorite designs. They will always be available and that is the power of printables!

What paper crafting project will you do this year for Chinese New Year?

Free Printable Vintage Valentine Cards

Looking for free printable vintage valentine cards that aren’t creepy or cringey for modern day times? Download these updated designs!

Download vintage-styled valentine love cards for free on tortagialla.com

Recently I came across this article of Sexist Vintage Valentine’s on Buzzfeed and it reminded me how the look of vintage valentine’s are cute – but they are often cringey and embarassing! I suppose they reflect the times, but the sentiments are usually not appropriate and certainly not what I want to say to my friends and loved ones.

So I thought it would be fun to riff off the vintage vibe and just design my own valentine cards. These new designs are definitely modern vintage, but they still have that old world paper feel. Now with a much more straightforward sentiment, I think these printable valentines would be great for your significant others as well as friends.

Just send them a note of love and care… especially during difficult times, because it’s nice to hear from friends and know they care. Download and print these at home, however many copies you need to send out. There are two different designs that can be printed trimmed and folded into traditional cards.

For personal use, feel free to download the PDF that contains both card designs for printing. Just click the link below and save to your computer.

As we approach February, the Valentine holiday is definitely on my mind. Although I’m not into the commercial aspects, I do like all occasions to celebrate love, romance and relationships. Whether you are making gifts for a significant other, your friends or your children – it’s a great occasion to just show that you care!

I love creating paper crafts and making a card or two for friends and family. Scrapbooking is also a great way to frame your photos and add the memories to your documentation. Lately I’ve been feeling the muted color palette, so created this cute heart-filled patterned paper design in a very muted burgundy wine color palette. The striped paper matches up with the busy heart design, so I hope these will be useful for your projects!

Will you scrapbook, make a card or wrap a small gift with these printable papers? I love to use printable papers in my art journaling as well.

Free Planner Dashboard Printables – Download Instantly

Check out these Free Planner Dashboard Printables to add to your system for a splash of pretty inspiration and motivational phrases.

Motivational inspirational free printable planner dashboards to download!

When it comes to planner sizes, I know there are so many options out there, so I decided to create these designs on a full LETTER sized paper. This means you can print it large like an art print or size down as necessary. I’m not an expert at all regarding conversion of sizes, but I’ve made sure to leave a lot of spacing around the central design, so you can always just trim to get the exact size you want.

The designs are all in a pinky earthy color palette that I’m totally feeling now. Very cozy and homey, but chic fashionable as well. There’s a light animal print pattern in the background with the white motivational phrase in the lower right corner. With a variety of phrases and colors to choose from, these dashboards can be very aesthetic but also functional in separating sections of your planner. I always love to include a bit of motivational artwork in my planner, even if I’m mostly functional and don’t use stickers or decorate. Since I look at my planner every day, I want it to be filled with things I WANT to see on a regular basis.

Get all the designs of the free planner dashboard printables below, just right-click on the link and download the ZIP file to your computer. You can choose whichever dashboard you prefer and print to the size you need. Trim as necessary. All the 300dpi JPGs are LETTER-sized.

Download this free printable 2021 yearly calendar at-a-glance view.

Here’s a yearly calendar printable for 2021 that is a MONDAY START. I’m definitely a Monday start kind of person and it makes more sense in my mind for the yearly and monthly view. If might also be helpful to highlight the weekends at the end if you prefer that view… but I have kept this design completely black and white for ease of printing and customization.

You can get your schedule and plans organized with a full year view at-a-glance – use this calendar however you see fit! Just download the PDF below and print as many copies as you need below. Here are some ideas on how I use yearly calendar views…

2021 Yearly Calendar View

This freebie printable is something I create almost every year, because it’s just so handy all around the house. We can always use a yearly calendar view – at your desk, on the fridge, in your planner. For quick reference of dates, it’s helpful to see the whole year on a sheet of paper.

Habit Tracking

Other than providing an at-a-glance view of the coming year, yearly calendars are also great as habit trackers. You can print as many copies as you need and label the top for one habit. Then cross out or highlight each day you complete your habit daily. You can also highlight or cross out a week, if your habit is weekly, instead of daily. Some folks actually collage over each month for a monthly habit or documentation as well. A lot of ideas and ways to keep yourself on track!

Get your FREE copy of the 2021 printable yearly calendar below. Just click on the PDF link and download to your computer for printing. The calendar is sized on regular Letter-sized paper, but you can print at a smaller percentage size as needed.
