Hey, Peeps! Well, it’s a few days before the official celebration for St. Patrick’s Day, but I imagine this weekend will be filled with holiday celebration and fun leprechaun parties.
So, with the upcoming holiday in mind, I decided to create a project life or pocket scrapbooking freebie with journaling elements that include iconic Irish images with a vintage twist.
I included a lot of authentic textures and muted green and neutral colors as well and with that…Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
*A little update*…I have been wanting to do this for a few months now and am so excited to get or make these live samples available. I had to wait for my tech guru son to hook up the printer to the network ( all my laptop and electronics are on a mini-home network), so that I could really utilize the “print and cut ” feature of my Silhouette Design Studio software. This is the result! I still have a few calibration issues I have to resolve with the registration marks, but it is working!
I tried the following samples and finished the details with some original “scherenschnitte” (I think that’s German for scissor cutting) scissors featured in the picture below and a corner rounder.
Keep in mind, I printed these samples on plain white cardstock. Just wanted to give you a sample of the 300 dpi print quality. Of course, your results will vary depending on your printer’s ink, the model of the printer and the quality cardstock you use.
As for the details about the freebie, there are four journaling cards and 16 elements in all. You have four journaling cards (3″ x 4″) and a few more labels, tags and elements as well. As always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects, smashbooks, art journals or other types of memory keeping. Hope you like them. 🙂
Facts about the freebie:
- This free printable has 16 journaling cards and elements on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.
- File size = 9.07 MB.
- These elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be very clear and sharp with a smooth lay down of the ink color. The preview pictures both on the blog and on Google are at 72 dpi, so you often can not see all the detail accurately or colors are sometimes distorted.
- Color scheme: green, l. green, buff, tan (photo-realistic paper texture)
