Hello peeps! Well, today I am providing an update on my latest vintage junk journaling mini kit printables! I wanted to help you out a little with a vintage ephemera junk journal mini kit printable set to jump start your crafting, art journaling, and/or scrapbooking time with today’s freebie download. These images are absolutely gorgeous with beautiful turquoise and neutral colors. They were created by a 20th century French Artist by the name of Emile-Alain Seguy. The originals were in a book titled, Papillon.
Most of these images are public domain images and came from a wonderful website called Rawpixel, they offer unlimited downloads on public domain images for free with a free sign up to their website. You can download up to five images per day on their other free images. They offer different high quality sizes of these graphics, some at resolutions suitable for professional printing. I like this graphic website because they provide a lot of high quality png files as well as gorgeous vintage images.
Today’s freebie was created from a variety of vintage ephemera butterfly botanical images that were downloaded and resized to approximate journaling cards size. I added the additional elements which I hope you can use in your various junk journaling or other paper craft projects.
I didn’t add distressing shades or brushes on the individual images, because what I have seen is that different diy crafters have different preferences to the amount of distressing they prefer on their journal items, I will suggest that you take a look at Tim Holtz, distressing inks, if you are interested in what “distressing” with ink is all about.
Facts about the Vintage Junk Journal Kit Freebie
As for the details about the freebie, there are 16 elements varying from journaling cards, tickets, tabs and a single isolated butterfly image. As always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects or other types of memory keeping.
This free junk journaling mini kit includes: 1) a junk journal page on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ jpeg file. 2) A set of tickets and tabs journaling images on a 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ jpeg file and 3) png files with the french word for butterfly and 4) a butterfly image isolated on a transparent background. I didn’t bundle these files, so you will have to download them individually. The watermark (if any) will NOT appear on your junk journal page.
These elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be clear and sharp.
The materials I used were all sourced from online vintage ephemera scanned at a very high resolution. Enjoy!
Latest Vintage Junk Journal Project
I don’t always get a chance to share little tips on what I am working on, I am providing more of these pics on my Facebook and Instagram accounts. I just wanted to show you that using Photoshop CC (there are other Photo editing programs available) I took one of the images by E. A. Seguy and isolated this set of butterflies. I usually work with a light grey background in a second background layer in order to erase all the unwanted floating pixels and jagged edges. The fully edited image with a transparent background is provided below.

How to Use these Junk Journal Kit Printables:
There are several ways you can use this printable to create your stickers and I have included a few in the following instructions:
1) The easiest way to use this printout is to print it out on a full sheet of white sticker paper and if you own a Silhouette Cameo or Silhouette Portrait or other digital cutter, such as the Cricut Explore or Maker you can cut out the journal kit using their designer software.
( **Please note: You must have the Silhouette Designer Edition software upgrade to open pdfs in your Silhouette. I also have redesigned the template so that the margins are within the “registration” area of your silhouette. You will have to spend some time creating the cutlines for the silhouette but this should make creating the cutfile a lot easier.) I have provided jpegs to resolve this problem.
2) Also another method, would be to use heavy bond printer paper or you can use 65 lb. white cardstock or heavy white printer paper depending on how thick you want your sticker and then place adhesive via a snail tape runner or with a Xyron sticker tool or machine.
3) Another way, (albeit a little time consuming way) is to print out the planner stickers on sticker paper and “fussy cut” out by hand, I have spaced the elements so that you can use a pair of good craft scissors to get a clean cut and handle the fussy cutting. Another handy tool to have for the straight cuts is a slide or rotary paper trimmer which will reduce cutting around the straight sides of stickers.
