Hello peeps! Today is the official first day of spring!!
I had a fun weekend getting ready for the new season and I thought that today I would provide this vintage sewing kit image in three different formats! I was actually sewing this weekend ( the canvas heart pin cushion was one of those projects) and I thought this pic and images would kick off the season in a fun way!
It doesn’t help that I have been watching so many junk journaling vids on Youtube 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 image (that is very hard to find by the way) to jump start your spring crafting, art journaling, and/or scrapbooking time with today’s freebie download.
This image is an update to the vintage ephemera that I have been providing in the last few posts.
Today’s freebie was created from a scan and then brought into photoshop in order to provide the black and white photo and the png file.
I didn’t add distressing shades or brushes on the individual images, because what I have seen is that different diy crafters have different preferences to the amount of distressing they prefer on their journal items, I will suggest that you take a look at Tim Holtz, distressing inks, if you are interested in what “distressing” with ink is all about.
Facts about the Vintage Sewing Kit Image Freebie
As for the details about the freebie, there is one image provide in three different file formats 1) original jpeg 2) black and white and 3) png file with transparent background that will be available on the downloaded file. As always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects or other types of memory keeping.
I didn’t bundle these files, so you will have to download them individually. The watermark will NOT appear on your junk journal page or vintage image.
These elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be clear and sharp. ( In this case the original image was taken at 150 dpi but the quality was improved in Adobe Photoshop.)
The materials I used were all vintage ephemera scanned at a very high resolution. Enjoy!
Latest Vintage Junk Journal Project
I don’t always get a chance to share little tips on what I am working on. The following is a photo of my tea dyed reinforcement labels, that I then stamped on with clear stamps (placed on acrylic blocks) and used black ink! Here’s my set of reinforcement labels in an organized set and with a handwritten key showing the different types of stamped coffee dyed reinforcement labels that I have created…

How to Use these Junk Journal Vintage Image :
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.
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.
