From the Land of the Rising Sun

For those of you that like Asian themes and illustrations, this post is for you! These particular illustrations come from vintage ship menus and hotel brochures. They are perfect for tags, journaling cards, pages, and a host of other ephemera. Please visit The Repository to get more goodies. (Please answer all required questions to join.) Have fun!! 📋📌📎📏📖🔖✂✏






More Patterned Paper

Image
I find that I really enjoy looking for patterned papers. All the different designs and colors are unique, one-of-a-kind ephemera. These would make great writing pages for journals, base images to build mixed media on, cutouts, pockets, tucks, and tags of all shapes. The ideas are endless! I share these files and more in The Repository so take a look for other files I share there Monday thru Friday. Happy crafting!! ⏳✂✏📕📖📜





Patterned Papers

Image
In my ramblings this week, I found these gorgeous patterned papers that I just had to share. I know, technically, the first two are book covers, but it's the pattern that is so unique. These would make great tags, backgrounds for mixed media, pockets - you name it! Have fun with these patterns, and create something beautiful! Don't forget to hop over to The Repository for more free goodies, or join to get a notification when new things are added. I add new files almost every week day! ⏳✂✉✏🎁💡📂📃📖📎📏📜












More Double Page Ephemera Fun

Image
I, for one, am a great fan of vintage advertising. Not only are they an interesting read (like why some contraptions are not made anymore) but they have some unique illustrations to help sell their product. So, I decided to share another five of these double paged ads, since the response was so good last week. Enjoy!







Double Page Advertisements

Image
This week I have found some double-page adverts from a late 1800's catalog. I have made them to print out a full 8.5 inches wide and 5.5 inches tall. So, they would be great as signature centers, or smaller pages within a signature. Or they can be cut in two to make tags, pockets, or a host of other ephemera. Be sure to hop over to The Repository for more freebies. In addition to the free five on Friday, I am now sharing 3 png (transparent stamp) files each Monday. They live on a page of the blog called The Stamp Stockroom. Plus, I am sharing some of my free textures, backgrounds, and ephemera I have designed on the other days. Happy crafting! 💚💛💡📁📕📖📜🎨✀📏







The Oompah

Hello fellow crafters! This week I thought I would change things up a little. In my search to find five files to share, I happened across this woman in orange playing a trombone. And, with the the name of the song, all I could think of was the Wizard of Oz. So, I have curated all the sheet music, plus made a duplicate cover in a sepia wash. I will be starting a new free-file give away in my group The Repository beginning next week, and I will be calling it The Stamp Stockroom. This will be a random collection of illustrations that I share as digital stamps with a transparent background, so keep a lookout for the album. New files will be added Monday through Wednesday each week. Stop by and have a look! 🌻🌹🍓🍒🐓📖✂



Rose Doorway, Piano Advert & Cabbage

Image
Hello everyone. Another free 5 coming at you this Friday morning. Three versions of a rose-covered doorway, a vintage color advert for pianos and organs, and a field full of cabbage with a horse-drawn carriage to boot. These could be tags, journaling cards, journal pages, or anything else journal-related. Have fun!!






Women & a Wagon

Image
The catalog cover this week features a group of women and a nasturtium. This would make a great tag or journaling card, and comes in the three variations that I think most creatives can use. I have also included a great page of advertising in two versions of sepia. I have also created an fb group to share these files en masse. I have also created an account on cluster(.)com, added a group on Mewe(.)com, and have made a shareable album in my Google photos. It is an experiment to see what works best. Please message me for an invite, or more info. In the meantime, enjoy the latest free downloads. 😁📜🎁📖📚✂

Pansy Field & Alphabet

Here is a beautiful pastoral scene with a lovely house in the background. Will make for a unique book page or tag in a journal, or plenty of other paper craft uses! I am still working on a group to share digital goods, but it will not be on fb. This is for both personal and professional reasons. By the next blog post, I plan to have it up and going. Stay tuned! ⏰⏳✂💻📖📎🔍👀
