I ran across thetomkatstudio.com several years ago when I was looking for free printables for a project I was working on. I discovered that Kim Stoegbauer has a fantastic website and blog with lots of ideas beyond printables to inspire!
Stoegbauer is the founder and creative director of The TomKat Studio, a blog and shop dedicated “to celebrating all of life’s moments and doing so in styl! She started The TomKat Studio blog (named after her two children – Tommy and Kate), in 2008. A few months later, Kim shared Kate’s second birthday party on the blog and demand for sharing her creativity soared. That same year, she opened up an Etsy shop and became one of the first Etsy retailers to provide printable party supplies! She soon went digital with her designs, allowing more people to join the party.
Stoegbauer’s styling and design eventually caught the attention of major brands like HGTV and Pottery Barn Kids. Since then, her styling work has been featured by Martha Stewart, HGTV, DIY Network, Pottery Barn Kids, Coca-Cola, Barbie, Shutterfly, Vera Bradley and many more. Her work has also been featured in publications such as Parenting Magazine, Celebrate Magazine, Where Women Create and InStyle Magazine.The TomKat Studio site has lots to offer! You can check out Stoegbauer’s home tour, decorating, parties, crafts and recipes sections. She shares cute ideas for themed parties for both children and adults.You’ll find lots of craft and recipe ideas for Halloween, tailgating, baby showers, Easter and Cinco De Mayo and many other holidays and occasions. I particularly liked her black and white Valentine’s party and her mini yogurt cookie cups from her back-to-school party.
Her free printables range from invitations, menus, signs, cupcake toppers, flags, cards, thank-you tags, and more. They are contemporary and classy. She has themed party designs and more you can print out to use at parties and dinner gatherings.
