Enjoy this latest freebie printable, “Vintage Ephemera Rounds”. This download can make great additions to your scrapbooks, cards, tags, junk journals, and other mixed media projects. These circles are 3 inches and are printable onto 8.5″ x 11″ paper.
I have been working on a junk journal for a few weeks now and decided to add some of my digital printables to a couple of the pages. I used the latest Multimedia Crafts Digital Blog Freebie called, “Ads Envelope Template”, and the Multimedia Crafts Digital Facebook Freebie called, “Aged Stamps”.
I made two pockets on the right side of the page and created some tuck spots on the left. There is plenty of journaling space in there.
-Crop a Dile or hole punch
-Distress Oxide inks – Tim Holtz, Ranger(Peeled Paint, Broken China, Vintage Photo, Black Soot)
Multimedia Crafts Digital Facebook Freebie – Aged Stamps
I first began by brushing some white acrylic gesso on each page. I let it dry using my heat embossing tool. Next, I added old book pages that I had distressed using both Tim Holtz distress ink, “Walnut Stain”, and Ranger pigment, opaque ink, “Black tie”.
I then ran some homemade modpodge over the base and added the book pages, sprinkling them with Recollections embossing powders: (snow, sapphire, citron).
On the left page I punched a hole in the top using my Crop a dile tool and added an eyelet. I wanted to secure the hole so that the ribbon wound through it would remain strong as it held the tag that I placed there as a tuck spot.
Next, I took some scrap cardstock pieces and drew flowers. I cut them out, dipped them in a distress oxide ink water mix (Vintage Photo), and stack them together with lace and cheesecloth to form a 3-d floral piece. It was added to the tag as a collaged tuck spot.
I found various pieces of ephemera, including journaling cards, and two reversible fabric tags that I made using Prima Marketing paper from the “Amelia Rose” collection.
I glued on the blue fabric and sewed the two brown buttons on. I added a butterfly die cut to the opposite side to garnish it.
I fussy cut out a vintage notebook from the Graphic45 “Typography” collection and added it to the center of the two envelopes on the right page.
I used text from the ephemera sheet on the Facebook Freebie, “Aged Stamps” along with other cut out embellishments for the rest of the project.
Finally, I drew a black flourish using Firefly alcohol marker #120. It is the same marker used to trace around fussy cut ephemera used throughout the two pages.
It was a very fun project. I hope you enjoyed this. Happy crafting!

I hope everyone has been doing well and is still sharpening their skills with digital crafting. I’ve been playing around with some clip art and decided to design a simple photo frame layout. This freebie comes with a psd and a png transparent file.
