Happy midweek, blog followers and visitors ! Today, I’m providing the third in this series of blue hydrangea vintage ephemera journaling papers printables and add- ons, I had hinted about in a past post. Yes, I do have a lot more flowers, but some of the inspiration for these designs I came up with after I had published my first post of these lovely flowers.
Your enthusiasm motivated me to come up with some new ideas and hopefully these journaling papers are more luxurious! So, I designed… (1) Lace journaling paper with a blue hydrangea repeat (2) Neutral journaling paper with hydrangea, script and vintage keys (3) french blue cotton fabric made to simulate muslin or ticking and (4) three large tags made from these papers. (The watermark is removed in the downloads.). Let me know what you think about these designs in the comments section below.
I designed these images in Photoshop CC which is an awesome photo editing program and can handle these large image files quite easily. (That’s part of the reason I subscribed to the CC version as soon as I was able.) The jpegs for these files will be rather hefty averaging around 4 MB each and the lace paper at 7 MB. Your printing results will vary depending on the type of printer you have. You can always take them to the nearest Office Depot or Staples (here in the US) to get higher quality printing if you are using these for a special journaling project.
I hope this freebie inspires you in your crafting, art journaling, junk journaling and/or scrapbooking time with today’s vintage freebie.
Blue Hydrangea Journaling Add Ons Design Inspiration
I am totally enjoying designing these projects. I am always excited to develop new ideas for tags and now papers with a vintage ephemera look for either scrapbooking, art journaling, junk journaling and other paper crafting use. I am trying to provide a few of these vintage printables more frequently.
If you are not into junk or art journaling, you can also pop these into the pockets of A5 planners or Traveler’s Notebooks if you enjoy a vintage aesthetic, as I do.
Today’s freebie has a lot of source vintage ephemera images from vintage Photoshop brushes (many that I am designing), round hand script, vintage botanical images I have scanned and other sources of vintage ephemera digital items, some sourced from books published in the 1800s! Each design requires different Photoshop skill sets, so I enjoy the process.
I thought I would mention that Creative Fabrica (a great graphic resource site and my go to site for many graphics) is having an awesome “Christmas in July” sale throughout July, check out their daily freebies and giveaways, yesterday was a Cricut Press! These are legitimate offers and giveaways but the goodies and discounts end on July 30th, 2022 when the promotion ends.
Facts about the Vintage Ephemera Journaling Add Ons Freebie
As for the details about the freebie, there are 4 journaling options in this printable. You can use these elements for journaling in your traveler’s notebook projects, smashbooks, junk journals or other types of memory keeping. This printable is for diy crafts but, of course, can be used in your journals.
This free printable has four journaling printables at 8.5″ by 11″ with assorted add-ons to coordinate or match with the original papers I released. These elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be clear and sharp. They can be used in either the Silhouette Cameo or Cricut digital cutters to cut them out or you can use scissors and a slide cutter. You don’t absolutely need a digital cutter to print, cut and assemble your projects but they’re great tools!
The materials I used were vintage ephemera scanned at a very high resolution and other high quality vintage digital resources.
**Please note, although I used public domain resources to create this design, the design is under my copyright.**
*White cardstock or white sticker paper, depending on your final use. You might consider white matte photo paper as I have included photo images in the journaling cards printable.
*Vintage inks, such as Tim Holtz Distress Inkpads, to give the edges a worn, tinted or aged look, if that is your preference. This process takes off the white edge of the journaling cards and journaling spots, if you are using them for junk journaling and gives the paper a subtle, aged and worn look. With these inks you control the amount of tinting and color you prefer on your edges.
*Scissors or slide cutter
*Photo editing software (i.e., Photoshop Elements) for jpeg files or Silhouette or other digital cutters.
How to Use this Vintage Ephemera Journaling Papers Printable
- Print and cut out the papers and use them as add on items for your junk journals, traveler’s notebooks and other planners. Watermark is removed on actual downloads.
