Free Printable Download – On The Farm Tags and Labels

On-the-farm-tags-labels-header

Hello, I hope you are all doing fine mid-week and are looking forward to a great weekend.  As you can see, today’s freebie ( a set of farm tags and gingham labels)  is leaning a lot toward farm ephemera and a harvest theme and my favorite, red, cream and black color scheme.  I really had a lot of fun  designing these tags even though collecting the vintage images was a real chore.  Certainly, not anywhere like the back breaking work of actually being on the farm,( I did a couple of stints in my time); however, I  actually take a nostalgic look at those days with vintage ephemera.

The background was a great find on the Old Design Shop‘s great site (a great resource for vintage images) where I found a vintage farm almanac page from the turn of the century. I added some chalkboard anagram-like alpha, some strips of virtual washi tape and vintage chicken and rooster images.

As for the details about the freebie, there are 8 elements in all.  The tags measure approximately 2″ x 3 1/2″   and the the red gingham labels are approximately 3″ x 2″.  I used a photo-realistic paper texture for the red gingham  labels.

Although these tags were made specifically as gift tags, as always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects, smashbooks, art journals or other types of memory keeping.

Facts about the freebie:

  • This free printable has 8 elements on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.
  • The file size is 8.52 MB.
  • These elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be very clear and sharp. (The preview pictures on the blog and at Google are at 72 dpi, the actual download’s color is actually much smoother and softer.)
  • Printing tip:   I would advise that you print on heavy white cardstock, plain or matte.
  • Color scheme: red, cream, black

Hello and welcome to all my new blog followers.  As you can see, for those of you who have been around a little longer, today I have gone back to my favorite color scheme of red, black and cream? tan? I’m not quite sure what the color is exactly since all the vintage ephemera varies  in their color tones.  And this time, I was aiming for a specific look as inspired by the work of Hope Wallace Karney whose blog’s name is called Besottment by Paper Relics.

I really just love her work and these art journaling tags I realize are far from the “real” materials she uses in her art journaling designs.  However, I thought I could absorb some of her design inspiration  and create the look in today’s freebie and this is what I came up with.

The following pic  leads to her blog via my Pinterest pin and served as the original idea inspiration.

Vtg-ATC-cards1-headerWell, I have gone back to my vintage theme with today’s freebie.  I have been experimenting with some of my brushes, overlay blends,  vintage images and vintage ephemera and came up with these designs.   I decided to combine two different styles, an art journaling doodled style on some of the vintage  ATC cards and vintage images of paper ephemera on the others.  I selected butterflies with blue colors in the wings, I guess I felt it coordinated well with the soft browns and creamy color of the paper.  Just my little foray into “digital” mixed media.

As for the details about the freebie, there are 8 different ATC cards measuring 2.5″ by 3.5″ some with butterflies and others with doodles and quotes that I liked.  As always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects, smashbooks, art journaling or other types of memory keeping.

This free printable has 8 elements on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.  This freebie’s file size is  rather large at approximately 11.5 MB.  The elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be very clear and sharp.  The paper texture at 100% detail are taken from vintage ephemera digital files scanned at a high dpi.  Hope you like them! 🙂

Vtg-ephemera-tabs-header

Well, now we are rolling into the weekend and I wanted to help you out a little with something to  jump start  your crafting and/or scrapbooking time with today’s freebie download.  I  have been wanting  to create  some tabs and labels with a vintage ephemera look for either scrapbooking, journaling, smashbooks and other paper crafting uses, so today’s freebie has a lot of vintage ephemera from postcards, a french dictionary, a music sheet and other sources of vintage ephemera items.

As for the details about the freebie, there are 23 elements varying from tabs, inchies, circles and a vintage ephemera butterfly.  As always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects or other types of memory keeping.

This free printable has 23 elements on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.  Unfortunately, although I tried to keep the file size smaller, this freebie’s file size is really large at approximately 21 MB.  These elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be clear and sharp.  The materials I used were all vintage ephemera scanned at a very high resolution, so I believe this contributed to the larger file size.  Hopefully, you own a modern computer and internet connection that can make the download easier for you.  Enjoy!

I hope your weekend has started out great.  I have been back to the “drawing board”, literally and took the time to design these vintage inspired, romantic garment tags.  I had hinted that I had been acquiring or gathering some crafting items in a previous post, and some of those items are commercial use vintage images used in designing these tags.

Commercial use images are a little pricier than personal use items but it pays off with higher quality images to work with in your designs.  I have just wanted to create high quality images as freebies from the beginning.  (Well, the design skills just need to catch up.) 😉

As for the details about this freebie, there are 14 elements in this download to use  either in your scrapbooking or in  other paper crafts.  This  free printable has 14 elements on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.  The garment tags are approximately 3.5″ x2″, the banners are  1″x 4″ and the circle labels are approximately 1.5″ in diameter.

The file size is rather large at 12.5 MB.  I’m sorry, I try to keep the file size down but trying to get fine detail at 300 dpi and a small file size is a little difficult.     All the elements were designed at 300 dpi, so you should have a very high resolution print quality.

I am continually grateful when I see my designs along side the designs of other established designers on your Pinterest boards.  I appreciate the vote of confidence.  Thanks so much for all the pins and repins to your Pinterest boards, I have had a lot of views from all over the world.  I’m grateful for all those that are reposting my designs with proper credit and linkbacks, I sure do appreciate it!

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 before you access the printable.

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.
