Free Digital Embellishments – Vintage Brads


There is nothing so cool and refreshing like the color blue, and in this hot weather that we are currently experiencing in So Cal, I thought I would switch to a new color scheme.  The color of the sky, the ocean and your backyard pool…Aaaah!…I am cooling down already.

As for the specific color scheme, I went for a light, turquoise blue (or Tiffany Blue), grey and white, another of my color favorites.  So, this time I got a little over ambitious in designing these elements, and I am including up to six digital elements. I believe,  I am getting a little faster at designing these elements so that is why I had quite a few available. (I guess that means my skills are improving.)

As for the elements, they are approximately from  1″ to 2″  in size  and have been designed at 300 dpi.  The two brads are only 1/2″ in diameter.    All my elements are saved at  a printable  high resolution of 300 dpi, and are stored on my Photobucket account,  images on my blog are usually at 72dpi to 100 dpi resolution.  I’m sorry for making you go through the extra work to examine the items; however, I am trying to discourage copying of my images without credit due.  I appreciate the good sports who have credited me on their Pinterest boards and Facebook accounts, this kind of sharing is always encouraged!;)

So… here are today’s digital embellishments on a button card.  And to access the elements, you will need to click on the jpeg’s below to access the .png files on Photobucket.


These are made available as freebies for you to use for your personal hybrid or digital scrapbooking use.  I hope you like them. 🙂

Some things you should know before downloading

Note About TOU:

As usual these are free for personal use, (check my TOU if you haven’t previously.) If you have been here before, you know the drill.  If not, you might want to read the quick TOU before you access the printable.

*Vintage Glam Collectibles or Vintage Glam Studio digital resources are for PERSONAL USE ONLY.
*You may not re-sell, redistribute, or claim them as your own.
*Please do not remove the watermark or modify the design in any way.

*Copyright remains with Vintage Glam Studio – Dru Cortez
*If you post this on the internet, please give credit to  Vintage Glam Collectibles & link back to my blog so that others can access the resources.

Details About the images:

*All images are made at 300 dpi so the digital files will usually be very large.  Make sure that your computer or laptop can handle the download.  In the future, I will be placing the images in .zip folders but they will usually still be large files as high res 300 dpi files usually are pretty huge and do not often compress to a smaller size.

*Most images will be .png files (transparent backgrounds) so that you can layer them onto your scrapbooking backgrounds or photos.

*Most elements will not include a drop shadow, as I will leave that up to you to add one if you like.  Drop shadows are usually included in the top layers of layered elements.  However, bottom layer shadows are included only in the preview images.

*I will be providing these elements with the assumption that you know how to use either Photoshop Elements, the open source photo editing program GIMP, Photoshop, or other photo editing software.  While I would like to offer support for these digital files, this is currently just a hobby and not my full time business.

*Most of my elements will be made from purchased commercial use or public domain resources, however if any designer feels their copyright has been infringed upon the freebie will promptly be removed and the freebie will no longer be available.  (I try to be scrupulous about what resources I use, but I may miss some.)
