christmas shopping with one click


Hello my dears, and happy Friday!! I’m in and out today, as I have family in town and a full day of plans with them ahead. I hope you’ve been enjoying all my crafty little DIY gift ideas over the past couple weeks. I’ve sure had fun working on them, and my pile of homemade presents to give is growing daily. I have a few more last minute homemade gift idea up my sleeve, which I will share next week. Today I am here with a shameless plug, as I point you in the direction of my shop, Emmy Lu Design Studio.

I know many of us are feeling the cost-crunch this time of year, and are looking for budget-friendly, yet hip-and-trendy gift ideas. My shop is stocked full of lovely, simple and cheerful printables that can be purchased for a low price, then printed over and over, as many times as you’d like.

This year, I printed off several calendars, slipped them into CD calendar cases, and wrapped them up as a little something for many of my friends. The jewel cases are less than a dollar a piece, and they also double as a stand for the calendars! I bought a five-pack of cases for $3 from Papertrey Ink, and I was so pleased with how quickly I received them, and the nice quality of the end product.

So, all that being said, if you need a last minute gift, or are on a budget, head over to Emmy Lu, and check out my calendars, notecards, recipe cards and gift tags!

    I need help! I tried doing this with the calendar that I won from you a while back (which I absolutely love!) but I don’t quite understand what you mean. How does the jewel case stay open? Where exactly am I putting the pages? I am sure I am missing something really obvious, but if you wouldn’t mind explaining a bit more I would love it!

    I love that calendar! What type of paper do you recommend printing it on, though? Also, does the paper have to be a certain size? Sorry, I’ve never purchased anything like this that I have to print myself!

    These are a perfect gift and absolutely adorable! You have such a artistic gift! SO cute I can’t wait to use it in 2011!

    The calender is absolutely adorable… I love the fact that the stand doesn’t take away from the calender.
