Christmas Digital Washi Tape

Pin It!

I shared a few sets of digital washi tape back in August, and today I am sharing a Christmas version! The images can be used for things like blog posts, Christmas crafts and scrapbooking.



The set contains 15 assorted designs. Each image is 400 pixels x 100 pixels, and is in .png format with a transparent background. Click on the link below to download the .zip file...



If you aren't sure how to add digital washi tape to your photos and images, check out this tutorial.

Enjoy your freebie!

Christmas Fonts 2013

Pin It!

This time last year, I downloaded so many Christmas fonts that I had to put together an image with them all on so that I could remember what I had. I ended up sharing this in a post and my font collections ended up being a regular feature on the blog.

The number of fonts I have download has increased a lot since then, so this year I am sharing 16 more Christmas fonts. Hope you like them as much as I do!


Jingle Bells
Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
Oh Christmas Tree!
Santa Claus Is Coming
Deck The Halls
{Snowflakes}
Dreaming Of A White Christmas
All I Want A Christmas
Silent Night
Winter Wonderland
Frosty The Snowman
{Festive Dingbats}
It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
Santa Baby
Holly Jolly Christmas
{Christmas Dingbats}

The fonts are free for personal use, but check the small print if you want to use them for more than that. :)

Free Christmas Social Media Icons

Pin It!

I know a lot of people like to change their blog with the seasons. I seriously considered giving A Typical English Home a festive makeover this December, but with being so busy I probably wouldn't get around to switching it back until next summer. However, that isn't going to stop me sharing some cute Christmas social media icons with my readers...


There are twelve free social media buttons included: blank, Bloglovin', email, Facebook, Flickr, Google Plus, Instagram, Pinterest, RSS, Tumblr, Twitter, You Tube

The icons come in four wintery colours:


All of the icons are in .png with a transparent background, so that they can be used against any colour.

Click on the link below to download the corresponding .zip file with all of the social media buttons.

Printable Christmas Planner 2013

Pin It!

I know I already shared a printable Christmas planner last year, but I couldn't resist creating a shiny new one. My 2013 printable planner is bigger, better and prints to an entire A4 page (after 17 months of blogging I have finally worked out how to create printables that don't have pesky margins). 

There are currently 14 pages in the planner, although that is subject to change if I think of anything else I would like to add. I am splitting the planner into two posts to spread my workload a bit. The rest of the printables will be available next Thursday.


You can't create a planner without a cute cover, right?


If you haven't already, you should start thinking about what you are going to buy people for Christmas. Use this printable to keep track of your gift ideas and what you have already purchased.


I know that some people love writing holiday cards, but others find the whole thing a bit of a chore. Whatever group you fall in to, stay organised and make sure you don't forget anyone with this printable Christmas card list.


It is scary how quickly the costs can add up at Christmas. Many people keep track of how much they have spent on gifts, but those inexpensive little extras can also cost a lot once you add them all together. If you are trying to be good and stick to a budget this year, this printable will help to keep you on track. I recommend printing off a sheet for each different category (food, decorations, entertaining, activities, etc).



For  a lot of families, December is the busiest month of the year. Therefore, I have created a calendar to go in the Christmas planner to help you remember all of your family's commitments.

Download/Print Christmas To Do List

I love to do lists. I would never get everything I need to done without them. This generic printable can be used for all sorts of things, so you may want to print off several for your planner!


I find myself scribbling all sorts of notes in the run up to Christmas (ideas, brainstorming, more to do lists). Sure you could regular lined paper for this, but this coordinated blank insert will look much cuter. :-)

Don't forget to check back next Thursday to download the rest of the 2013 Christmas planner! If you are trying to get organised for the festive season, then you may also want to check out my Tuesday posts for the next few weeks which will be full of tips and checklists to help you create an organised and stress free Christmas.
