Well, it’s a new month and I’ve got lots of stuff to share. I hope you all had a great weekend even though we were shaking and rolling quite a bit here in Southern California. (at least where I live.) I’d like to welcome all new blog visitors and followers. I really appreciate all the visits from newcomers and of course, I am always grateful for the “oldies but goodies” that have stuck around since I started actively posting my designs about a year ago. The time sure has flown by fast!
Speaking of times past, with today’s “vintage writing journaling elements” freebie I have included several vintage writing images and have blended them with ephemera backgrounds that are free and are made available by Mel at Melstampz.com. I just love her gift card and other “creative crafty” designs, the colors she uses and all the other crafting and designing freebies that she makes available on her blog. The following is an image/print screen of her blog and a sampling of the free papers she provides on Pinterest.
I used the neutral colors from the background papers and tried to emphasize the hexagon graphic as well as used vintage writing instruments. I can just say that designing these journaling elements was a lot of fun.
As for the details about today’s freebie, there are 12 elements in all. You have four journaling cards (3″x4″) and a few more labels, tags and elements as well. As always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects, smashbooks, art journals or other types of memory keeping and that includes you Filofax/planner fans, as well.
Facts about the freebie:
- This free printable has 12 elements on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.
- The file size is a little hefty at almost 9MB. (857 KB)
- These elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be very clear and sharp with a smooth lay down of the ink color. The preview pictures both on the blog and on Google are at 72 dpi, so you often can not see all the detail accurately or colors are often distorted.
- Color scheme: black, white, cream, grey
My expression of gratitude for all your Pinterest and other social media pins…
I’d like to say thanks to all those taking the time to comment, I sure appreciate the gracious “thank yous” and the legitimate “link love”. I have been nearly overwhelmed with the positive response from blog followers and blog visitors. My web traffic keeps growing every month.
Thank you for your pins on Pinterest as well as Facebook links. I also appreciate mentions in your blogs with appropriate link backs and active links. Many of you have been kind enough to feature some of my designs on your blogs and that has contributed to the increased traffic.
I hope you don’t mind when I check out your Pinterest boards, and repin some of your pins to some of my Pinterest boards, these pins usually provide inspiration for new designs of my own! You guys and gals often find things I don’t often run into and it just serves to expand and generate new ideas.
As usual these freebies 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 below before you access the printable.
* Vintage Glam Studio printables (formerly under the name Vintage Glam Collectibles) are for PERSONAL USE ONLY. (I own the domains for both names and will be dedicating this blog to more design related articles and printables. Don’t be concerned if you have posted it under the previous name, my traffic boost is contributing to the name change.)
*You may not re-sell, redistribute, or claim the original or derivative designs as your own.
*Please do not remove the watermark or modify the design in any way other than for your own Personal use.
*If you post this on the internet, please give credit to Vintage Glam Studio & link back to my blog, so others can obtain the resources. Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook are great social media sharing platforms, it’s the sharing without a link back that can be a problem.
