Free Printable Download – Floral Watercolor Bookmarks

bookmarks, floral, printable

Hello, blog visitors and followers. Well, we are now into May and the big day for Mom’s draws nearer!   I have a freebie today  that reflects a floral design and soft, spring  color palette. I have been “playing” with a faux watercolor technique for a  while and thought that Mother’s Day is an appropriate time to provide a freebie with such pretty and happy colors. I also love the quote.

As for the details about today’s freebie,  you get 4 bookmarks at (7″x 2″)  .  I designed the freebie with a little bleed area between the outer dashed line and the bookmark to make it easier to cut.   This freebie is for all Mom’s that love to read and could be appropriate with a reading gift!

Facts about the freebie:

  •  4 bookmarks on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.
  • File size is 2.39 MB.
  • 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:  soft green, pink

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”.

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.

Here’s a sample pic of the printout on plain, white cardstock.  I use an Epson Artisan 810 color inket printer on full color photo print. I went ahead and rounded the corners just to see how they would look.  You might like the straight edges better.

Free Printable Download – Romantic Rose Bookmarks

Hello…I hope you are starting your weekend off great and that you’ll have plenty of time for crafting and other happy pursuits.  As for today’s freebie, I am doing something a little bit different, I have stuck to an ephemera/vintage color scheme and style but this time I designed  romantic, rose  bookmarks.  I love pretty bookmarks and I have several since I love to read.   I’m excited to add these to my designs and hope you find them functional as well as pretty.

As for the details about the freebie, there are 4 bookmarks that measure approximately 2″ wide by 7″ tall.  As always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects, smashbooks, art journaling or other types of memory keeping or just what they were designed for to keep your place in your latest read!

This free printable has 4 elements on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.  This freebie’s file size is  rather large at approximately 10.2 MB.  The elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be very clear and sharp.

Note: The design was laid out on a landscape printer orientation, so please remember to change your printer when you send to print.   The paper textures used (music sheet and dictionary page) were scanned at a very high dpi and the roses are original, clear images of vintage roses.  I also included a damask overlay in the design.  The overlay is more subtle and doesn’t show up as dark as it is in the preview image below.

Most of my elements are 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.  Designers vary in their restrictions for their terms of use (even for CU items), so although I try to be scrupulous, I may miss some.
