Hello peeps! When I shared that I have been experimenting with some of my “new” vintage brushes, overlay blends, and vintage images , I was serious. So, to make up for not publishing earlier in the week I am providing this set of journaling tags for your crafting and journaling pleasure.
The journaling tags are in six different colors and in three different sepia tones. There are two variations of the same image for you to use ” as is” or so that you can embellish for your art journals or art/bullet journals. I think they might serve as a good background or base for your designs and add a pop of color.
I added a linen texture which you can see clearly when you view the cards up close. These vintage journaling tags also have several sewing themed vintage elements that add additional interest. My sisters are the expert seamstresses in my family and my Mom still knows how to use her “serger” when she helps my sister make drapes or furniture coverings. I sew well enough for crafting and getting myself into trouble.
This is another example of my dabbling into “digital” mixed media and junk journaling.
Facts about the Journaling Tags
As for the details about the freebie, there are 9 different journaling tags measuring 2.5″ by 3.5″ , about the size of your standard baseball card.
As always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects, smashbooks, art journaling, junk journaling or other types of memory keeping.
This free printable has 9 elements on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ jpeg file. This freebie’s file size is rather large at approximately 8.4 MB. The elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be very clear and sharp. The paper texture at 100% detail and the images are taken from vintage ephemera digital files scanned at a high dpi and Photoshop brushes that I have created. Hope you like them! 🙂
How to Use this “Journaling Tags” Printable:
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 Maker or Explore you can cut out or planner stickers using their designer software. ( **Please note: You must have the Silhouette Designer Edition software upgrade to open pdfs in your Silhouette.
2) Also another method, would be to use heavy bond printer paper or you can use 65 lb. white cardstock 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) The rather 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 stickers.
