Hello peeps! Well, I really have something very different for you today! I have been watching several Youtube vids on junk journaling and that inspired me to try my hand at this project. I wanted to help you out a little with a vintage ephemera junk journal mini kit printables to jump start your crafting, art journaling, and/or scrapbooking time with today’s freebie download.
I have been wanting to create this type of freebie with the vintage ephemera and vintage Photoshop brushes that I own and already have in my stash.
Today’s freebie was created from a variety of vintage ephemera-some made into Photoshop brushes and other’s are just png files of these images sourced from vintage paper items scanned at a high dpi. I made these with the color theme used by many of Tim Holtz’ vintage Idea-ology products. Of course, this is my first go round with this product, so on to giving you the info as to what you are getting in this freebie. I didn’t add distressing shades or brushes, because what I have seen different diy crafters have different preferences to the amount of distressing they prefer on their journal, I will suggest that you take a look at Tim Holz distressing inks, if you are interested in what “distressing” is all about.
Facts about the Vintage Junk Journal Kit Freebie
As for the details about the freebie, there are 20+ elements varying from tabs, pocket cards, quotes and an 8 1/2 by 11 journaling page.. As always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects or other types of memory keeping.
This free printable has 1) a junk journal page on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ jpeg file. 2) A set of journaling tags on a 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ jpeg file. 3) Foldable pockets and tabs on an 5.5″ by 8 1/2″ jpeg file. And 4) Ten quotes, Shakespearean quotes, (can you guess which is not written by Shakespeare? Note: Answer in the Image Credit notes below, in case you are curious) on an a 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ jpeg file. I didn’t bundle these files, so you will have to download them individually. The watermark 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 vintage ephemera scanned at a very high resolution. Hopefully, you own a modern computer and internet connection that can make the download easier for you. Enjoy!

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.
