A note about the images:

*All images are made at 300 dpi so the digital files will usually be very large digital files.

*Most will be .png files (transparent backgrounds) so that you can layer them on to your 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. 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.

Here’s another version of the image with sparkly blue stars!

Free printable Download- Shabby Chic Roses Tags and Labels

shabby-chic-ROSES-tags-labels-header

Hello…I have been having an enormous amount of fun working with different textures to create digital paper.  I am still trying to perfect my skills but I would like to think I am getting a little closer to creating highly textured and pretty paper.  I used the familiar rose pink and muted teal color scheme for this freebie and I doubled  the freebie fun for today’s blog post  by making a digital paper and then,  also designing tags from that paper!  I have made both freebies available for your use.  I hope you like them.

As for the details about the freebie, there are 12 elements in all.  The tags measure approximately 2″ x 3.5″   and the Dennison type labels measure about 2.5″ by 1″.

Although these  shabby chic roses 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 12 elements on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.
  • The file size is 7.52 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 and I added a lot of texture which often doesn’t show up in pictures on the web.)
  • design style: shabby chic roses, birds, french script, texture
  • Printing tip:   I would advise that you print on heavy white cardstock, plain or matte.
  • Color scheme: turquoise or muted teal, peachy-pink, cream, white

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” , you guys made October my biggest web traffic month yet, hopefully, it can be repeated in November.   I know you don’t always have time to leave a comment because you are busy, so I really appreciate it when blog visitors take the time to either like or comment.

Thank you for your single pins (and for some of you),  multiple pins of my various designs on Pinterest as well as Facebook links.  I also appreciate mentions in your blogs with appropriate link backs and active links.

The following is  sample of the printout printed on plain, white cardstock (Note: my current cardstock has a slight ivory cast ) and was printed on an Epson Artisan 810 printer. Also, I’m still working with my camera lighting; however, I wanted you to get an ideas of the laydown of the color and texture on the same printout.

Hello, blog visitors and followers,… so  I am in a retro fashionista mode this week and as I had mentioned in my last post, I have been acquiring a variety of images and other designer stuff in order to experiment with vintage or retro looking paper.  And…this is my first foray into a retro digital paper or background I would like to make available as a freebie for personal use.  It reminds me of the popular TV show Mad Men.

The picture below is the preview of the paper at 72 dpi, however the original is located on my Photobucket account and the file size is approximately 3.92 MB.

This digital paper was designed by me and  was designed  as a 12″ x 12″ , 300 dpi background using a lot of Photoshop brushes, textures and overlays.

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.

You can download the jpeg here.  Or click on the picture below.

Free Digital Embellishments – Vintage Brads

blue-brads-header

There is nothing so cool and refreshing like the color blue, and in this hot weather that we are currently experiencing in So Cal, I thought I would switch to a new color scheme.  The color of the sky, the ocean and your backyard pool…Aaaah!…I am cooling down already.

As for the specific color scheme, I went for a light, turquoise blue (or Tiffany Blue), grey and white, another of my color favorites.  So, this time I got a little over ambitious in designing these elements, and I am including up to six digital elements. I believe,  I am getting a little faster at designing these elements so that is why I had quite a few available. (I guess that means my skills are improving.)

As for the elements, they are approximately from  1″ to 2″  in size  and have been designed at 300 dpi.  The two brads are only 1/2″ in diameter.    All my elements are saved at  a printable  high resolution of 300 dpi, and are stored on my Photobucket account,  images on my blog are usually at 72dpi to 100 dpi resolution.  I’m sorry for making you go through the extra work to examine the items; however, I am trying to discourage copying of my images without credit due.  I appreciate the good sports who have credited me on their Pinterest boards and Facebook accounts, this kind of sharing is always encouraged!;)

So… here are today’s digital embellishments on a button card.  And to access the elements, you will need to click on the jpeg’s below to access the .png files on Photobucket.

Free Digital Embellishments – Gold Vintage Crown Charms

Crown-charms-header1

With all the good news about babies and royalty in the news, I thought I would create my own celebration of kings and queens by providing some free vintage crowns.  This is my newest foray into designing realistic looking metal elements and I hoped I accomplished that goal with this set of vintage pressed metal golden charms.

The source for the vintage postcards is from a fabulous collection on Flickr’s Creative Commons section managed by Chicks57.  These were my favorite, but she had several beautiful french vintage postcards of little girls with various shabby chic elements such as roses, wings, decorative props, and so forth.

As for the color scheme, I went for pink and gold, another of my color favorites.  So this time, I am including three vintage metal crowns.  They are approximately 1″ to 1.5″ large and have been designed at 300 dpi.    All my elements are saved at this high resolution, and stored on my Photobucket account,  images on my blog are usually at 72dpi to 100 dpi resolution.  I’m sorry for making you go through the extra work to examine the items; however, I am trying to discourage copying of my images without credit due.

So… here are today’s digital embellishments on a button card.  And you will need to click on the jpeg’s below to access the .png files on Photobucket.

Free Digital Embellishments – Shabby Chic Brads

Shabby-Chic-brads-header

Well, the week has flown by, and the weekend is rolling in… I hope you find some time for crafting ( of all kinds) and time for your family and other pursuits. Yes, it’s shabby chic time again.  I am  back to a vintagey, shabby chic theme, the tried and true seafoam green, shabby chic pink and peach color scheme. I also have a few other color schemes in mind but if you are asking why I have been sticking to this one…is there a method to my madness?  Yes, there is because if you come back each time, you will pretty much be able to collect a coordinated mini kit!

So, as before with  this color scheme  there are so many variations and patterns to work with and it gives me a chance to try out a few different designing techniques.  So this time, I am including a couple of  1.5″ brads and three pieces (approximately 3.5″ wide and .75″ tall) of shabby chic washi tape at 80% opacity.  All these elements were created at a high resolution of 300 dpi.

If you have visited this blog before you will know that, I really like paper crafts with a vintage or retro theme .  Although, I often create whimsical elements as well.

So… here are this week’s digital embellishments on a button card.  And you will need to click on the jpeg’s below to access the .png files on Photobucket.

Free Digital Embellishments – Shabby Chic Felt Flowers

Shabby-Chic-felt-flowers-header

Well, the weekend is rolling in…and I hope you find some time for crafting and other heart healthy pursuits.  This time, I am resorting back to a vintagey, shabby chic theme. I went back to a seafoam green, shabby chic pink and peach color scheme.  Yes, you have seen this color scheme before; however, there are so many variations and patterns to work with, so, I am trying another layout.  I really like the creative aspect of it all.  This time, I am also including, a scrapbook layout idea, that came to mind as I was creating these flower embellishments.

I am also including some matching glitter brads (you’ll see “bling” sneaking into my designs often…I really like it…no, I would say love it)  that are about 1/2″ wide in diameter. The felt flowers are about 3″ wide.

If you have visited this blog before you will know that, I really like paper crafts with a vintage or retro theme and when a crafter combines sewing with paper crafting or digital scrapbooking…well, that just about does it for me.  I haven’t got the sewing styles & stitching technique quite where I want it, but you can expect to see it in  future layouts.

Here are my felt flower embellishments within my scrapbooking layout idea.

So… here are this week’s digital embellishments on a  button card.

Free Digital Embellishments – Whimsical Flair

whimsical-flair-header

Here is the latest digital embellishment freebie, for your digital or hybrid crafting use.  These flair were made from the digital designs I released a couple of months of ago which seem to be pretty popular.  Thanks to all my visitors.

If you have visited this blog before you will know that, I really like the color scheme black, white and red. I created the original files in a pdf freebie.  So, I decided to create matching flair. They are created at 300 dpi and measure approximately 1″ in diameter (300 px by 300 px).   They are created for personal use only.

Just like the other embellishments I made,  I got so excited that I went beyond creating the embellishments and created the packaging as well…it’s getting pretty standard. Continue reading Free Digital Embellishments – Whimsical Flair
