Free Christmas Ornament Coloring Page

Free-Christmas-Ornament-Coloring-Page-Artzy Creations

  Lately, I’ve really gotten into creating coloring pages.  I’ve been an art teacher now for over eighteen years and have always loved drawing.  Both of my daughters have a great love for drawing too.  Sometimes, when I couldn’t find just the right coloring pages for the girls, I would create my own for them.  So, this Free Christmas Ornament Coloring Page was actually a special request by my oldest daughter who wanted some pretty ornaments to color in. Now, I’m sharing it with all of you!  If you haven’t tried coloring a coloring page in awhile, (which I admit, I hadn’t done in a long time before I started creating these), you’re in for a real treat.  Coloring pages are actually very relaxing and give your busy mind a chance to unwind just a little bit.  So, why not give it shot and see what you think!

 Free-Christmas-Ornament-Coloring-Page-01-Artzy Creations   This is a great coloring page to keep the kiddos occupied over the upcoming Holiday break.  Use crayons, colored pencils or markers… take your pick.  You and your kids will love it! Free-Christmas-Ornament-Coloring-Page-02-Artzy Creations

Don’t forget to print a page off for yourself and sit down with a nice cup of coffee or tea.  Or join your kids and make it a fun family activity where you all spend some time together, coloring.

Until then, you can follow me for more craftiness fun at Artzy Creations or on FacebookInstagramPinterest,Twitter, and Google +.

5 Little Pumpkins Coloring Page

5-Little-Pumpkin-Coloring-Page-Artzy Creations 3

Hi Everyone!  Today, I have another FREE coloring page for you.  This one was a request by my daughter who has been head over heels for pumpkins ever since she could talk.  She asked me if I would create a coloring page based on one of her all time favorite books, The 5 Little Pumpkins.  Of course, I couldn’t say no.  So, I thought I would share this coloring page with you too.  The 5 Little Pumpkin Coloring Page is fun for all ages.  When I was coloring this I couldn’t help but think of the song with the hand motions that I sing with my daughters  in both pre & elementary school.

Water Bottle Holder with Free Pattern

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Brita, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #BritaOnTheGo http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

As a teacher, I have a very hectic schedule during the day.  I’m constantly on the go.  I’m on the go so much that I honestly forget to drink enough water.  I know it’s one of the worst possible things I can do for my health.  Well, if you ask almost any teacher, that is pretty standard.  Well, in order to get back on track with my water consumption and improve my personal health, I’ve started making a point of taking a Brita Water Filter bottle to work.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 2

I picked up my Brita Water Filter at Walmart in the Hardware section.  You can also find them here.  First of all, this water bottle is great because it’s BPA free.  The even better part is that since my school is a much older facility, it filters the yucky tasting tap water, and reduces any chlorine taste, odor, zinc, copper, mercury or cadmium.  I also like how the filter is good for up to 300 uses, and by reusing the the bottle, it will keep 300 disposable plastic water bottles from going into the landfill, or even the recycling center.

Well, since I have my Brita water bottle all filled up, I wanted to make sure that I could  fashionably carry it with me to and from school, as well as between my two teaching classrooms each day. That’s why I came up with this handy dandy, fashionable water bottle holder tutorial that I wanted to share with you.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 3

First of all, I chose a sun outdoor fabric because it is a little heavier and would repel water.  Plus, it was such a pretty mandala design that I couldn’t resit. It matches my personality perfectly.  You could also make this pattern with regular fabric too.  My test pattern was out of regular cotton fabric and it worked just as well.

Supplies Needed:

  • Fabric (Sun or Regular Fabric)
  • Nylon for the inner lining
  • Batting
  • Coordinating Thread
  • Scissors
  • Nylon Webbing
  • Bungee cord
  • (2) Grommets
  • Gromet Setter
  • (1) Plastic Toggle Spring Stop

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 4

Step 1:  Cut the fabric, batting, and nylon all to 9″ x 12″ pieces.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 5

Step 2:  Cut a 4″ circle out of the fabric, batting, and nylon as well.

Step 3:  Make a proper hem at the top of your fabric.

Step 4: Take your outside piece of printed fabric and fold it in half so the print is on the inside. Pin and sew a 1/4″ hem along the 9″ side. When finished you will end up with a tube. DO NOT turn it right side out yet!

Step 5:  Taking the circle piece of fabric, pin it to the bottom of your tube. Make sure the bottom (no print side of the fabric) is facing out. Pin this in place and sew the circle to the tube piece. When done, reach through the tube, grab the bottom, and pull it through to make it right side out. It should look like this below.

 

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 6

Step 6:  Take your batting and nylon pieces. Fold the top over and sew a proper hem.

Step 7: Repeat steps 4 and 5 with your nylon and batting materials. When finished you will end up with a second tube.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 7

Step 8: Slide the inner tube into the first tube you made. Make sure the batting is between the nylon and outside fabric like the photo above. See that wasn’t too hard. Now you’re almost done! Onto the straps.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 8

You can make the strap one continuous piece or you can use a parachute buckle. I wanted to be able to adjust the length of my water bottle holder, so I went with the parachute buckle.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 9

Step 9: Slip the nylon webbing  about 1″ down between your two tubes. Pin it in place but don’t sew it yet. If you’re just using 1 piece of webbing without a buckle, measure and cut the nylon webbing to what’s appropriate for the height you want the bottle to hang to. Since I decided to go with a buckle, I used about 1-1/4 yard long piece of webbing, which I cut into a 24″ piece and whatever the the remaining was. Before you thread the nylon webbing through the buckle, you will want to melt the end so it doesn’t fray. Be careful, this stuff gets really hot. Next, take the female end of the buckle and slide the webbing through with about a 1″ overlap.  Create a small fold under your webbing before sewing it so you don’t end up with the sharp, burned end exposed. Pin this folded end of webbing in place and sew it. Take the other side of your strap, and slide it down about 1 inch between your two tubes just like the first, but on the other side of the holder. Pin it in place as well. Next, slide the other end through the male part of the buckle. Once you have both pieces threaded through the buckle and pinned in place, run a stitch around the tube, securing the webbing, but keep it about 3/4″ below the lip. This creates at bottom of the pocket that keeps the bungee in place.

Step 10: Punch (2) small holes in the outer layer of fabric and secure a small grommet in each of them. This is a really nice and easy way to finish the opening where the bungee slides through.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 10

Step 11: Take your 20″ long piece of bungee cord, find the middle and tie a knot in it. Then, slide both ends of the bungee cord through the Plastic Toggle Spring Stop. Next, slide each end of the bungee cord through the front of the grommet, and pull them through. Place the ends of your bungee cord side by side, overlapping about 3/4″ and sew them together. Now you have a closed loop with the Toggle attached. The knot that you tied will keep the toggle from slipping off of your bungee cord so you won’t lose it. 🙂  Also,you can re-adjust the location of the knot later if it isn’t where you like it.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 11

Step 12: Fit the bungee loop between the inner and outer fabric. Pin the top and sew around the rim just below your proper hem, and you’re finished. It should look like above.

 I love how the water bottle holder makes the Brita water bottle even more convenient to carry around.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 13

 Now I’m really looking forward to getting back on track with my water intake.  The Brita water bottle also has markings on the side of the water bottle letting you know how much water you have consumed throughout the day.  This will be a great help for making sure I’ve met my daily intake goals.  I am trying for at least two water bottles full per day or 44 ounces!

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 14

 This water bottle holder will be great for short hikes too!  So, go out and get started on getting more hydrated with a Brita water bottle, and  by following this pattern and tutorial, you too can design and create your own water bottle holder that fits your unique personality.

Here’s to getting healthier.

Free Printable and How to Add Foil

Anna-Griffin-Minc-Artzy Creations 2a

The Anna Griffin Minc will be on sale at the HSN’s Today’s Special starting on May 11th at midnight.  This Anna Griffin Minc bundle is valued at over $150.00 and will be on sale for a special price.  There are limited quantities so they will go fast.

In this amazing package deal you will receive these 130 gorgeous designed die cut pieces, 5 packages of foil sheets in the various colors seen above, 3 plastic carrier sheets, glitter sheets, toner paper, and more.

Anna Griffin Minc Machine Features:

  • Will accept a 6″ wide sheet
  • Has rollers that evenly distribute the feed
  • Evenly distributed heat for more consistent application of the foil
  • The machine is light weight and compact which is perfect for any craft room.

The best part about this machine is that it’s really easy to use.

Anna-Griffin-Minc-Artzy Creations 3

The Minc has various heat settings for different types of paper.  Let the machine heat up.  The green button will stop blinking once the Minc has heated up to the correct heat.  Cut the piece of foil to the size of your design.  Above, you can see that I cut the foil for this die cut piece just a little bit large than the actual piece itself.  I didn’t want to cut it too close and run into any problems.  Insert the design with the foil side up on top of the design, and sandwich it in between the plastic carrier sheets.   Insert this into the Minc.  The Minc will feed the plastic carrier sheet through the machine to the other end.  Very carefully and slowly peel off the foil.

This is such a great machine because you can use this to embellish cards, gift tags, and so much more.

Here is the before and after of my printable.  Look how gorgeous this turned out!  If you would like to have the same free printable, you can get it HERE.  This will fit perfectly into a standard sized matted Ikea frame.

If you are going to use the Minc for one of your own designs, it must be printed off onto a laser printer or copy machine.  The Minc machine adheres the foil to the toner.

So, starting Monday night at midnight, head on over to HSN’s Today’s Special and get your Anna Griffin Minc.  You’ll love it.
