Happy end of the first week of December, Day 7! Today, I’m providing my latest vintage ephemera junk journaling printables. I have noticed a lot of traffic on these blog posts and I’d like to acknowledge and appreciate the support and referral traffic.
Today, I am providing you a set of Vintage Christmas journaling papers or paper textures that you can use for a variety of paper crafts. The color theme is filled with rich cranberry reds, forest greens, and creamy vintage book pages that suggest vintage Christmases of times past. And, of course, my regular readers know I like the contrast of script and ledger paper.
In any case, I hope this freebie inspires you in your diy crafting, art journaling, junk journaling and/or scrapbooking time with today’s vintage freebie.
I so enjoy 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 uses. I am trying to provide a few of these vintage printables more frequently. I mentioned previously about how many crafting/junk journaling Youtube videos I am watching for inspiration and ideas. The list of ideas is long.
These jpegs are created in Photoshop CC at a high quality dpi, so some of the files may be large at approximately 5 MB. I designed the repeats in these patterns in Photoshop and than layered with other paper textures to provide you with the journaling papers I am releasing today. If you are not into junk or art journaling, you can also resize some of these images and 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 ledger script, vintage Christmas music images I have scanned and other sources of vintage ephemera digital items, some sourced from books published in the 1800s and great vintage ephemera websites. I also would like to mention that Creative Fabrica (a great graphic resource site and my go to site) is having an awesome sale throughout this month as we get ready for holiday/Christmas crafting, be sure to check out their daily freebies and giveaways. I took advantage of their Black Friday sale and reduced the annual cost of my subscription. There are a lot of other great digital graphics websites that I use, but I have been pleased with the offers provided by Creative Fabrica. The chinoiserie graphic below was is an exclusive design by Creative Fabrica’s graphic designers.
Facts about the Vintage Ephemera Junk Journaling Freebie
As for the details about the freebie, there are 4 printables provided today. 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 paper crafts but, of course, can be used in your journals.
This freebie has two journaling pages at 8.5″ by 11″ and two add on pages of Christmas washi and a newly designed printable of 3″ x 5″ postage stamps. 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.
The materials I used were vintage ephemera scanned at a very high resolution and other high quality vintage digital resources.

*White cardstock or white sticker paper, depending on your final use.
*Vintage inks, such as Tim Holtz Distress Inkpads, to give the edges a worn, tinted or aged look. Takes off the white edge of the journaling cards and journaling spots if you are using them for junk journaling and gives the paper an aged look. With these inks you control the amount of tinting and color you prefer on your edges.
*Scissors or slide cutter
