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.

Fall Word Art Sentiments – Free Printable Download

Hello and Happy Friday! Well, the Thanksgiving holiday is about two weeks away and as it is approaching the weekend…it’s crafting time.  So, today  I am releasing  a set of fall word art sentiments that you can use  for project life or other types of pocket scrapbooking.

These mini word art journaling cards are sized at 2″ x 2″ and are designed with a handwritten type of font as well as other script fonts.   I have been working on a variety of handwritten types of designs including my own writing as you might have seen if you are following my Instagram account.  Although, I will say that  for these cards   I have added a few more commercial use decorative fonts and I had  lots of fun creating them!

Although these are meant for project life or pocket scrapbooking, of course, you can also use them on your other papercrafting ,  Filofax planner add ons as well as greeting card crafting.

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 also appreciate the links on Facebook and Pinterest and for some of you, your personal blogs.   And thanks for checking out my Instagram pics as well, sure would love it if you can  follow me!

5 Whimsical Free Fonts for Valentine’s Day DIY Crafts

free-fonts-header

If you are contemplating making any DIY crafts for Valentine’s day, (whether it’s greetings cards, tags or labels),  it helps to have great fonts in your decorating arsenal.  I have compiled the following whimsical free fonts from a great online site resource  for free fonts.

The styles vary and the terms provided for their use by the font author varies; however, all those that were selected for this blog post are free for personal or commercial use.  These fonts (or typography, if you want to get technical) are all from the same site or font foundry, Dafont.

Selecting Your Font

The font designer usually provides a visual template of how each letter of the alphabet will look, or if there are any characters that are missing or not included in the font file,  for example, punctuation or other symbols.  They also include information as to whether the font can be used for personal or commercial use or whether they are requesting a donation.

The Dafont site has a cool feature that allows you to print the word phrase to preview just what your greeting card, tag or label might look like with the word phrase you have chosen.

All these fonts were located under the Holiday > Valentine’s section; however, there are hundreds  more available. The whole site has literally thousands of fonts.  They have sans serif fonts, serif fonts and script fonts available for your use.

I selected these because they were the most decorative (and they were searched as to the most popular) for the holiday, but I would suggest you check out the site for additional cute or romantic fonts that would suit your style or fancy.

1. Krishart

kris-hart-font

2.  Fatty Heartfatty-heart-font3. Heartland

heartland-font

4.Times New Romance

Times-New-Romance

5. Queen of Hearts

queen-of hearts

The font files are downloaded via a zipped file and it will contain a font file usually ending with the suffix .TTF.

The instructions for the  installation of the font files vary per computer but they are not that difficult. If you have a Windows Vista operating system or a Mac, usually it requires just dragging and dropping the saved .TTF file into your fonts folder on your computer. Otherwise, you might want to check your system’s operating “Help” file to find out how to install your fonts.

Once you get familiar with the site, and adept at loading your fonts the trick will be to see if you can stop at only one!
