Free Digital Embellishments – Vintage Map Tags and Brads

Spyglass on a Map During summer many are taking time to relax with travel and vacations, but even if all you can afford is a “staycation” and the extent of your travel is only to the local park or your backyard, today’s freebie is all about travel with a vintage theme.  Hopefully, it will get you to think about far off destinations and put you in a relaxing frame of mind so that you can enjoy your weekend!

And on to today’s freebie… there are two types, as for  the  digital embellishments, I am including a couple of  1″ brads and 2 vintage cluster tags (approximately 1.75″ wide and .3″ tall).  All these elements were created at a high resolution of 300 dpi. You can usually right click on the jpeg image and it will take you to the full resolution image stored on my Photobucket account.  On a windows platform, you can right-click and”save image as” in order to download and save to your desktop.

In addition, I have included a printable download .jpeg file for  vintage map tags of the United States on a 4″ x 6″ sheet, the tags are approximately 1.75″ by 3″, at 300 dpi.  The file size is about 1.39 mb and as mentioned before is on a 4″ x 6″ sheet, so you might want to print this on a matte 4″ x 6″ photo paper for the best printing quality.

Here’s a sample of the print out and finished product below:

If this size works out, you will probably see more “freebie” mini printable downloads with printable elements in the future so that you can use in your project life or other scrapbooking use.

You can download the jpeg here.  Or click on the picture below.


So… here are this week’s digital embellishments relative to  a 4″ x 6″ button card.  And you will need to click on the individual 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. 🙂

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.

Details About the images:

*All images are made at 300 dpi so the digital files will usually be very large.

*Most will be .png files (transparent backgrounds) so that you can layer them on to 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.)
