Freebies: Holiday Gift Tag Printables

Hello lovelies! The holiday season is in full swing and I hope y'all are enjoying this wonderful time of the year! Keeping with the holiday spirit I have some fun freebies to share! As you know I am a huge (make that HUGE) fan of Pinterest and I came across a bunch of different holiday gift tags that were pinned from graphic designer's websites across the internet. I have gathered up my favorites and compiled a list of them below. Aren't these great!? I love them all, especially the tags with modern patterns like the first set as well as the vintage style of the second set. I hope you enjoy these freebies as much as I do! Big thanks to all the fabulous designers that created and shared these!

Details: All of these holiday gift tag templates are in .pdf format. You will need a .pdf reader to download and use them. You can download a free one called Adobe Acrobat Reader here. These templates are for personal, non-commercial use only.

Instructions: Click the link below the pictures and it will take you directly to the .pdf file for download. Then just print on cardstock, trim, punch a hole for twine or thread and tie onto your loved ones’ gifts. Or turn the tags into gift labels by printing onto sticker paper.

Merry Christmas and happy wrapping!

Engagement Session: Rachel + Jake

Allow me to introduce you to one of the sweetest couples ever, Rachel & Jake!! I just love these two and they are especially near and dear to me because their wedding was my first official booking!! Yep, that's right! I met with them back in July and we hit it off immediately! I cannot wait for their big day to get here, less than 4 months to go! They are getting married on March 31, 2012 at the Evergreen Marriott at Stone Mountain. It's going to be beautiful!!! Here are the couple's gorgeous engagement pictures taken by the talented Justin Wojtczak of 375 Photography. I just love all the fall colors! Enjoy!!

I just love how they incorporated their pup, Lilly, into their e-session! So sweet.

Inspiration: Chevron Pattern

I just love this timeless + chic zig zag pattern! Chevron is one of the most classic graphic patterns of all time; it's basically the next best thing to the polka dot! It has shown up everywhere from the fashion runways to the living room rug. Now this pattern has now taken on a fierce position in the wedding world and I am loving it! The best thing about the chevron pattern? It's versatility! It can be anything from modern, to preppy and even vintage depending on the color and what design elements you pair it with. Go mod with black and white plus pops of yellow or keep it soft with light pink and white and a little lace. Oooh… I get so excited thinking of the possibilities! Just one thing to keep in mind when it comes to this bold pattern, a little really goes a long way! Here are a few of my favorite ways to showcase some chevron love in your wedding.
