The Winter Season

Image
With cooler weather coming, and winter just around the corner, I thought it was a great theme for this post. I love the vintage, outdoor activity greeting and post cards. They would make great journaling cards, tags, and a host of other ephemera. Happy crafting!! ❤πŸ“ŽπŸ“•✂πŸŽ‰

The Joys of Nature

Image
Hello fellow crafters! I just ordered myself a long zoom lens for my camera, and it got me to thinking about what I would like to photograph with it, so today's freebies are a diverse collection of animals that I thought befitting for this time of year. Many of us would rather be at the beach than the forests or mountains, so even the little sea birds are appropriate, even though they have been extinct since 1911. πŸ˜” Hope you enjoy these and are able to use them in your craft projects! πŸ€πŸΎπŸ“·✂✏

Autumn Theme

Image
Today's freebies are a collection of autumn-themed illustrations, from fall fashion to a classic menu. Hopefully, these will add a little pizzazz to your autumn themed paper crafts. Happy crafting!! πŸŽπŸπŸ‘’πŸ“–✂

Five Florals

Image
Today I am sharing some vintage floral illustrations and the back covers of a couple of seed catalogs. It doesn't matter what time of year it is, flowers are always a bright spot in any craft project. These are especially pretty with their Victorian styling and typography. Hope you all enjoy these! Happy crafting! Remember to stop by The Repository for more free goodies. πŸ‘€❤πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’œ✂✉✏🎁  

Eclectic By Request

Image
Within the definition of eclectic, I searched and found some unique brochure covers and an illustration that are just fabulous! I love the colors and designs of the covers. I made two versions of the illustration, with and without the typography. I hope you enjoy creating with these as much as I enjoyed finding them!! Happy crafting !! πŸ˜πŸ’œπŸ‘€πŸŽ€✂πŸ’ŒπŸ“πŸ“œ

Vintage Ladies By Request

Another requested post coming at you this Friday. Vintage ladies! I love these old photos, and have quite a collection of my own growing.

Birds By Request

Image
So, I did a poll in the group to see what people were looking for, and I have a few subjects to search for. Today's offerings are a couple of vintage bird images and illustrations. My next search will include vintage photography, so look for that next week. In the meantime, I'll keep looking for requested items, and have more to add in the coming weeks. The poll is still open, so drop by The Repository and put in your comments if you are looking for something particular. Happy crafting!! πŸ’šπŸ˜πŸ“Ž✂✏πŸ“  

Hats & Portraits

Image
This blog post is running late!! Today has been a busy day. (Actually, the whole week has been!) But, there is the old cliche` Better late than never! Today's offering are two advertising goodies from a magazine, dated in the 1800's. Two gorgeous men's hat adverts, in the original blue and a sepia version. Also an ad for household art, in a whole page and just the images. Also remember to visit/join The Repository for more free goodies every week. Happy crafting!!   

At the Market & Worn Book Cover

Image
Since I don't 'do' the typical holidays that most people do, I thought I would share a representation of the fall seasonal with a market harvest. Those who make gardens are gathering in the crops this time of year. As usual, there are three versions: bright, faded, and sepia. Along with that are a front and back book cover, worn and raggedy, that would make a great base for dark themes. Be sure and check out The Repository for more great freebies. Happy crafting!  ✒✂πŸ’ŒπŸ“–πŸ“š
