Kawaii Journalling With Rainbowholic

Kawaii Journalling With Rainbowholic

Something different today as I have a cute video to share with you. One of my favourite people in the kawaii world is Kaila of Rainbowholic. She’s always so positive and motivated to fulfil her dreams, even when things get tough.

She helped me out with a project recently and I sent her a few bits of my stationery as she is an amazing kawaii journaller. I’ve become pretty interested in journalling recently and hope to start one myself next year. Everyone has their own style and Kaila’s is really kawaii with a mix of scrapbooking, daily life and goal planning.

Unfortunately, she accidentally deleted the videos where she created the pages featuring my characters but you can see them in this video below. It’s all so cute! If you watch the full video, there’s also a little discount code for my shop too.

You can see more of Kaila’s kawaii journalling videos at Rainbowholic TV, as well as videos from her life in Japan, but be careful as they’re very addictive :)

Cookie Cute Printable Garland & Ornaments

This gingerbread man garland was my first free printable, and the most popular by far. Print off as many as you like, cut them out and string together to decorate a wall, shelf or mantelpiece. You can even print it half size for a mini garland or cut out individual cookies for tree ornaments, gift tags or place settings. If you don’t have a printer, I also sell ornament postcards, ready printed for cutting out.

Gingerbread Man Mini Christmas Cards

This mini card tutorial is based on my own personal Christmas cards from a few years ago and is easy to customise for your skill level and available supplies. The little cookies can also be stuck on gift tags, handmade crackers or place cards.
