Obsessed with Amazing Free Online Printables.. Send Help!

The last thing I needed was something new to be obsessed about. I simply have no time {hubby rolls eyes}. Honestly, I try to just keep to myself, stay focused on my current obsessions and just keep walking, telling myself “do not look up”… I’m just like a fish in the uncharted creative waters when it comes to crafts, tantalized by a wiggly worm that dangles in front of me… I just gotta get a closer look! Hmmm… Looks VERY interesting. Hey, I can do that! I just can’t help myself and lunge forward and lose complete control… {sigh}

Sadly, hooked is an understatement when it comes to my latest obsession with free online printables. I had no clue until the last couple of months that printables have really evolved beyond kids basic coloring pages. I’m not sure how I missed it but there is an amazing smorgasbord of free stuff like personalized labels, beautiful stationary, calling cards, art, kids Birthday party kits, monograms, fun recipe cards, signs and SOOO much more! Free!!

The great news is that most of these websites and blogs provide very clear and detail instructions in printing the printables!
Some of the best free printables available online are directly from some of the top graphic designers who offer freebies in hopes of generating interest and traffic to their websites. Graphic Artist, Cathe Holden of Just Something I made uphas one of the best websites I have ever seen with a huge library of some of the most amazing free printables online. Here are some of my favorites from Cathe:I LOVE all of Cathe’s canister labelsfor the kitchen!

 

 

Another favorite is Janna Wilson from Cut & Create who offers free fabulous printables like these:

Gorgeous favor cones

 

Are you overwhelmed yet? But wait, there’s more!

Online label/paper companies like World Label offer templates for free printables in hopes that we will purchase their labels for the printables. Many of these printables are “fillable” which means you can easily add text for monograms or to personalize! Wow! Here is just a small sampling of some of the free printables available at World Label

Laurie with Tip Junkie is also obsessed with free online printables and has links to literally hundreds of free printables available on the web. Laurie makes it so easy just page through hundreds of printables and you can click on the ones that peak your interest!

If you’re interested in seeing even more free printables, I have started my own Pin Board on Pinterest with more great printables. You can check them out here and be sure and check back as I will continue to add to the board as my obsession rages on!

Do you have a favorite printable that I need to add to the Printable Pin Board? I would love to see and “collect” it, so just post the link in the comment section. I can just hear my new line with my friends, “I have a printable for that”!

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and check back on Friday for another fun furniture revamp from the Studio 319 remodel.

As always, thank you for your comments, emails and notes! I really appreciate your feedback.

Cheers!

Cyndy

    Thanks for all the printable links! love them. I wasn’t able to get the colorful round labels that are second to last. the link just went to a jpeg picture of them fanned out. they look neat though.

  23. Belle says:

    Those are just lovely! I recently started a blog with free printables, maybe you would like to see it – printabelle.com. Also, in terms of the ink usage, my local UPS print shop charges .25 per color copy and they come out looking sooo much better than my home printer. I don’t know if that is a standard amount, but it makes for cheap printables when using the free ones! Thanks!

  24. Claryn says:
