Thank you to Canon PIXMA for sponsoring this article.   Print anything that matters to you from anywhere to anywhere, with Canon PIXMA and the PIXMA Cloud app.

For the past few weeks I've shared with you my experiences with my new Canon PIXMA MG7120 Wireless Photo All-In-One printer.   I've been able to unlocked the power of printing in a big way, including party planning.  Not only has it enhanced productivity for my small business, it's made homework a breeze for you boys, and helped make me a better multi-tasker at home!  I'm still shaking my head though, that I am now able to completely plan a party with my Canon PIXMA!

Here's how to plan a party with the PIXMA printer and the PIXMA Cloud app.  It's a beautiful thing.

Finding Printables
My parties always involve fabulous printables.  I decorate and embellish with them at every event that I host.   There is just something about custom printables that make a party look like there is attention to detail, and guests LOVE that.
 
In the past, I would spend time browsing the internet, specifically Tip Junkie {wink} looking for printables and inspiration.    Then, I'd make files on my computer for ideas that I had found, bookmark the URL, or just hope that I'd remember where I saw the great idea or printable.  It was always a mess, always disorganized, and never as beautiful as I'd hoped.  Plus, I always wasted time looking for ideas and printables that I had "misplaced".  {{frowny face}}
 
Once I started playing around with my Canon PIXMA, I realized that it would behoove me to save all of my ideas in one place (I put the ideas for this party in my DIPTIC app), access them with the PIXMA Cloud App, and then send them to my printer so that I could make my final decisions.    Easy as 1-2-3.  {{see above}}
 
Once I had my inspiration printed, it was easy to figure out what items I'd need to decorate for my party, and then simply print them.   For this Party, I only used Printables and items I already owned to decorate, so it truly was an easy, inexpensive and low-time party.  I LOVE that!
