{FREE} Valentine’s Day Printable Gift Tags


Look ye here – it’s that time of the year again – Valentine’s Day!! It is almost scary to see how quickly it has swung our way again!

Things were so hectic in this office at the end of last year that we were not in a position to participate in the Consol Glass competition for the Xmas E-Book (Boo Hoo).  But we had determined that since they had supplied us with a few interesting glass containers, we would put them to good use for our Valentine’s Day blog posts.

This year, Marica’s mind went in the direction of those yummy edible gifts – you know cupcakes, muffins, sweeties, nuts and even a peach pud. After all – were we not told of old that “the way to a man’s heart is via his stomach.”  And since we know that “glass adds class” – we think we have a winning combination.

However, that then is not the end of the story.  In fact, the true essence of this post is going to be these super, cool free printable tags that Marica designed.  We try as a rule to avoid what we think to be “cheesy or corny” Valentine’s Day ideas, by steering away from the anticipated red and white images.  But hey – these tags and their tag lines are just so cute, that we are going with being “cute cheesy” this year.   I personally love it and think Marica has done a sterling job with them. Particularly by making them accessible to our readers as printables – sharing the luv!

Oh My Gosh – if I carry on writing any further, I will embarrass myself with the cheesy clichés I am coming up with. So, enough already from me.  All that remains to be said – kudos to you Marica.

CALL TO ACTION – get printing; make yummy edibles, pop into glass containers – and – ENJOY YOUR VALENTINE’S DAY with whoever you choose to share it with.

Consol Glass Christmas Inspiration

Last week the PR Company for Consol Glass published their very latest eBook. One such landed in my email. Well to coin one of my many favourite clichés – Oh my goodness gracious me! It is seriously loaded with a ton of very inspirational images and ideas.  Ideas that will have your heart pumping, your hands and feet itching to get going to make it your own. If you are anything like me – well – your brain will get so stimulated that it feels like information overload. They have taken from their range of Consol glass containers and presented gob-smacking images of fabulous stuff.

We could not help but to share it with our readers. In the spirit of Christmas, we have selected from the Festive Season chapter because again, if you are anything like me – still plenty to be done for Christmas.  I have to get my head around the whole Christmas gifts and décor stuff.  But, I have been inspired to use glass wherever possible. To quote Consol’s eBook – “allow the allure of glass to add style to your celebrations”.  Yip – that is what I am hoping to achieve with gifts, table décor, general décor and I might even get around to some of those tasty looking cocktails.

The few images we are sharing here are only there to whet your appetite for more. Check out the Christmas section (Chapter 6) of Consol’s eBook: here.

But please – don’t stop at that chapter. I would highly recommend that you nip over to view the entire eBook: here

P.S. – you will notice that talented local bloggers took part in the compilation of the eBook’s inspirational images, with credit  given to them at the bottom of each page as well as at the back of the book. Sadly, you will hopefully also notice that our blog is missing (says she sobbing away)! But there is a good reason for that – at the time the invitation came, we were deep in the throes of working towards a project deadline and could not tear ourselves away from it.  BUT – stayed tuned guys and dolls, because we here at The Design Tabloid have something up our sleeve for 2014 with Consol Glass products.
