I’m sure the weekend is going to be a busy one, but nevertheless I came up with this design for today. I really should stay away from Pinterest, just when I think I am plum out of ideas for the week …there you go, I get a new idea! I must be thinking about food gifts, or the board I have specifically for food packaging called DIY Crafts | Food Gifts and Packaging on Pinterest. I changed the color scheme for this design to a vibrant turquoise and red!
As for the details about today’s freebie, you get 8 retro kitchen labels at (3″ x2″) . I designed the freebie with a retro feel. Also, there is plenty of room for you to get in and around the labels to cut them out . I think some rounded edges on these might look great.
Facts about the freebie:
- 8 kitchen labels on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.
- File size is 3.64 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 often distorted.
- Color scheme: turquoise, red
How to Use this “Journaling Cards” Printable:
There are a few ways you can use this printable to create your journaling cards and elements and I have included a few tips in the following instructions:
- The easiest way to use this printable is to print it out on a full sheet of white cardstock and if you own a Silhouette Portrait or a Silhouette Cameo or other digital cutter you can cut out the journaling cards and journaling elements using their designer software. ( **Please note: You must have the Silhouette Designer Edition software upgrade to open pdfs in your Silhouette.) There are several pdf to jpg converters online if your software just can’t open a pdf. You will have to spend some time creating the cutlines for the silhouette but this should make creating the cutfile and cutting it out a lot easier.
- The most labor intensive (or time consuming) way is to print out the journaling cards or journaling elements on 65 lb. white cardstock and “fussy cut” out by hand, I have spaced the elements so that you can use a pair of good craft scissors or a slide paper trimmer or gyro tool to get a clean cut and handle the fussy cutting.
