project life, journaling elements, New year

Hello…blog followers and visitors!   Drum roll please…we are now in the last day of 2014, can you believe it?  And we will be soon ushering in the year 2015!  Today,  I am releasing another  holiday freebie with a set of black and white journaling cards and elements for project life or other types of pocket  scrapbooking. But before I discuss the freebie,  I’d like to thank you all for making this year a “rip roaring” one in terms of web traffic…thanks for your support,  frequent visits and frequent repins.  We hope to make 2015 even better!

As for the freebie, I have included an assortment of journaling elements, some can be used for your project life projects and others are for you Filofax planner fans.   I have a board on Pinterest you might want to follow that has several ideas by other designers for Home Office Planning , stationery and Filofax planner needs.  You can view that board here, Home Office | Planners & Stationery Favs.

Well, on to the  freebie, there are 19 journaling elements in all.  You have 2 journaling cards (3″ x 4″) and a few more labels, tags and word snippets.    As always, these journaling cards and elements  can either be used for journaling in your project life projects, smashbooks, art journals or other types of memory keeping and papercrafting.

Facts about the freebie:

  • 19 journaling elements and journaling cards (2) on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.
  • File size – 200KB
  • 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 sometimes distorted.
  • Color scheme: black and white

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.

Some things you should know before downloading:

* Vintage Glam Studio printables are for PERSONAL USE ONLY.
*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 (www.vintageglamstudio.com), 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.

Holiday Greetings from Vintage Glam Studio

holiday greeting, Christmas

Hello peeps!  It’s Christmas Eve…and I just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  I wish you and yours the best and may your holiday season truly be filled with joy and wonderful memories.  I’d also like to thank you for your continued support and here’s looking at 2015 for a variety of new ideas and freebies to share with y’all!

Vintage Kitschy Digital Diecuts for Project Life Filler Cards

Hello blog followers and visitors…it’s almost 3 days before Christmas! So, I just wanted to share a few notes on a theme I have been working on with my most recent project life filler cards.  I have been using vintage kitschy digital images and incorporating them into my designs for a “Merry Kitschmas” theme.

I have also been using my Silhouette Cameo to create an offset on some of the vintage kitschy digital images.  Some layouts look better with an offset others do not.    Here’s the round up of  the layouts I have created and posted to my Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Project Life Filler Card#1

I used Crate Paper scrapbooking paper for the background and added embellishments with gold foil diecuts, sequins and scrap paper banners.  I diecut the fawn image with my Silhouette Cameo.

I used Heidi Swapp scrapbooking paper for this filler card.  I embellished it with Jolee’s Boutique snowflakes, a flair made with my Epiphany Crafts tool, and scrap paper banners.

kitsch, santa, project life

Project Life Filler Card #3

I used Crate Paper’s vintage themed “Peppermint” scrapbooking paper for the background on this filler card.  I embellished it with a few snowflake diecuts, stickers and punched shapes.  The vintage kitschy kitten was too cute!

Project Life Filler Card Layout #1

I used scrapbooking paper by Pink Paislee for these two filler cards.  I embellished them with Jolee’s Boutique snowflakes, stickers, green glitter washi tape  and  scrap paper banners.  I just love vintage images of woodland animals and these bird and fawn were just the kind of kitschy digital image I was looking for!

Project Life Card Layout – 6″ x 8″

I used a combination of Crate Paper and Heidi Swap scrapbooking papers for the background on these project life filler cards.  I went “deer” crazy with the cute little vintage fawn digital images.

Also, I am including a short video that gives you a  closeup view of the detail on the cards. Enjoy!

Blog Announcement – Handmade Greeting Cards Now on my Etsy Store

Hello blog visitors and followers.   Well, I imagine you are busy with all you last minute shopping, wrapping, crafting and all the last minute activities that can occupy your time in this holiday season.

I just wanted to share that I am beginning to post tangible papercraft products in my Etsy Store apart from the digital graphics.  As we ahead into the new year,( imagine 2015 already?),  I will be posting additional papercraft products handmade  by moi!

I wanted to show you the detail on some of the recent limited greeting cards that I created and made available for sale on Etsy.

Greeting Card #1

I had holiday baking in mind when I created this card.  I loaded it with a lot of embellishments including a clothespin, handcrafted flair and silhouette diecuts as well as a diecut banner made with my Sissix machine.

Greeting Card #2

I was thinking “vintage” with this card and wanted it decorated with snow mittens and a lot of feminine details, such as stitched scalloped borders.  I even added the vintage  sentiment because I thought it was so cute and  of course, for more bling… pink glitter snowflakes and rhinestones.

Greeting Card #3

I was thinking of a “blue Christmas” with this card.  I love all the light blue elements and especially enjoyed creating the woodgrain background for the card.

Greeting Card #4

Now what is Christmas crafting without a little gold and another favorite woodland animal…a deer.  This card was so fun to craft.  I added a lot of details including an embossed piece and white ink stamped piece of acetate to simulate viewing the snow through a window.

Greeting Card #5

This card was so much fun to handcraft.  I used premade Jolee’s Boutique embellishments and placed it on an embossed backing designed by Anna Griffin.  A little more formal.  (This card is no longer available on Etsy and has been sold.)

Well, that’s the round up of cards I handcrafted and actually have made available on my Etsy Store.  You will be seeing more papercraft items in the future as I coordinate my time for these handcrafted items.    I hope you like my creations! 🙂

Holiday Crafting – Blog Update!

Hello Peeps…Just wanted to give you an update on what’s going on behind the scenes for the holidays here at VintageglamStudio.  I have been doing a little retooling of my activities and boosting a presence in other  Social Media locations…such as Google+, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.  I sure would like to welcome all the new visitors coming from Pinterest!

In addition, I am also actually spending most of my holiday  crafting time not only designing but actually creating in hardcopy most of the freebie printables I do design.  The image below has a sample of several of the products I have created and crafted.  Some of these holiday items,  I will soon be making available at my Etsy Store.

So, all to say, I am still here and will continue posting freebies in the near future, but currently  (or at least this week) I have been busy creating hard copy items to either post on social media or some hard copy items to feature in my Etsy Store.  Stay tuned for more freebies that I will be posting!

Thanks for everyone that is stopping by to visit and I encourage you to subscribe  to my blog if you would like to receive the freebie  goodies and news I do post when I am on a regular schedule.

Holiday Sentiments – Free Digital Elements

word art

Hello everybody…all blog visitors and new followers.  I wanted to share a type of  freebie that I had not  posted in a while….seasonal holiday greetings or sentiments.  Today, I am posting a variety of digital elements of holiday sentiments or seasonal greetings in gold foil or red glitter.  I am posting five different jpeg files and making them available for your  December daily papercrafting, photo editing  or digital scrapbooking use.

There are five files :  3 gold foil greetings and two red glitter sentiments.  I hope you like them! 🙂

General notes about the images:

*All images were designed at 300 dpi and stored on an external website, so the digital files will usually be rather large digital files. They were designed on an 1800 x 750 pixel grid which is approximately 6″ x 2.5″ if you were to print them out.   The preview pics below are at 72 dpi which are not suitable for digital scrapbooking or photo editing.

*Most files  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.

*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 Commercial use or public domain sources; 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.)

Please credit Vintage Glam Studio if you repost to another site and redirect to my blog not direct links to the digital downloads. Pins are appreciated.

The word art is stored on an external storage site. To access the file, click on the image and right-click and “Save As” on Microsoft Windows or click the download button once you click-thru the preview image.
