Kids (and maybe some adults too!) will have fun writing a Christmas wish list on this free printable design by Paperspice. It will also be a good opportunity for kids to practice their handwriting. If they change their mind, then simply print the sheet again and let them write a new list. You can download the free printable PDF file by clicking on the link below. The file has two 5×7 lists per sheet. Just print the file on US letter or A4 bright white paper and then trim the lists to size using the printed guidelines. Have fun with this free printable, but please remember that the file is for personal (non-commercial) use only.

It seems unbelievable that Halloween is now less than three weeks away! This year Paperspice has designed a new Halloween party collection called “Spooky Friends”. This printable collection is just right for a Halloween party for younger kids, as the designs are more cute than scary. The designs are now available to purchase in the Paperspice Etsy shop.
Ombre is a big design trend right now in everything from fashion to baking. (Ombre is a French word meaning “shade” and the trend consists of designs that include graduated layers of colour from light to dark or from one colour to another.) Ombre layer cakes are a simple interpretation of the trend using different shades of the same colour in each of the cake layers. Despite the simplicity of the idea, the effect is stunningly pretty and it is no wonder that ombre layer cakes are everywhere at the minute. As you can see by looking at a selection of my favorite examples below, this style of cake is perfect for so many different types of celebration including birthday parties, baby showers, bridal showers, engagement or anniversary parties.
