The TPK holiday worksheet printable is a tradition that I started in 2016! Around this time every year, I come up with a few different holiday-themed calligraphy pieces and combine them into a worksheet. That worksheet only is available through December 26th — but! — like the Ghost of Christmas Past, it makes an appearance the next holiday season (and the next, and the next).
I love making themed calligraphy drills sheets, so I planned and put together some “Spooky Drills” last autumn! The only problem? My memory of making these drills is about as foggy as a dark and stormy night at a haunted mansion. The drills sheet was my creative outlet after becoming a mother in mid-September, and those early new-parent days can be pretty intense!

My personal mantra? Everything looks better with lace! As beautiful as an autumn leaf may be, add a lace illustration, and it really pops. Today, I’m going to show you how to make an amazing fall-themed card! All you’ll need is a printer, some scissors, and glue.

Ten years ago, “learn Photoshop” was not an item on my goal list. I was proud of my analog skill set, so why would I have to fuss with digital stuff? The answer came to me — quickly — when I founded TPK. Photoshop proved indispensable in designing invitations for clients, making printables for blog readers, and editing photos! My only criticism of Photoshop? It’s very frustrating to learn. I hardly ever cry … but teaching myself how to use that program provoked tears of frustration! That’s why, years later, I made the Digitizing Artwork and Calligraphy eCourse. It’s been a staple of the TPK catalog for three years, and it will continue to call the catalog home for two more weeks until its retirement!

As I mentioned in Monday’s newsletter, there are some changes afoot at TPK. I’m working hard to curate the TPK catalog before we implement a new website design later this month! Too much of a selection can be overwhelming, so I’m paring down and laser focusing on what TPK makes best: educational tools. You can expect most TPK eBooks, courses, and worksheets to stay! Most illustrations, however, are on their way out, including the “Springtime in Paris” Printable Stationery. I’ll be retiring them from the catalog on Tuesday, July 16th … two days after Bastille Day!

A couple of weeks ago, I released a limited edition worksheet set: the CLASSIC Amy Style. While learners seem to be enjoying the dip pen and Procreate versions of the worksheet, I’ve had a few requests for a brush pen version! With the clock ticking on the expiration of the Classic Amy, I decided to hunker down and make a brush pen worksheet set happen. My timing means that it’s only available for a week: but hopefully that gives you enough time to snag it if you’re interested!
