I'm off to make hot chocolate and watch the snow continue to fall as it has for a few days. Winter is here, and I'm ready to stay cozy indoors until Spring.

See you back here next week, lovelies!

Free Printable - Lovely Journaling Cards

It's freebie day! I really wasn't sure what to create today, but then I started thinking about how wonderful you all are to keep coming back week after week and how blessed I am to know you. And so, these pretty ladies are dedicated to you, my lovelies!

For Personal Use Only

I also want to take a moment to thank all the ladies (and gent) in the UK who wrote to me last week and have offered to send me British junk for my Doctor Who journal project. This book is going to be all the more special because of all the help I'm getting to create it. Thank you so much!

Wishing you all a happy weekend!

Calling All UK Lovelies :)

Hi everyone, it's me again! Last week, I posted on my Facebook page that I'm looking for a big favour from anyone in the UK, so I decided to post it here as well, hoping some of you will be able to help me out!

I'm on a mission to make myself a Doctor Who junk journal, in which I can record favourite quotes, episodes, characters, etc. Very geeky, yes. But I think it would be lots of fun and something just for me! So here's why I'm addressing all you wonderful British lovelies - I need your UK junk!

Let me explain: I'd like to make up the pages of the journal with any junk mail, menus, theatre programmes, maps, etc that you have, simply because it's from there. Doctor Who and the BBC are British icons and I want my journal to be all British, front to back, top to bottom.

If any of you would be interested in sending me junk, I'd be happy to pay the postage. Here's a list of suggestions:

-tourist pamphlets
-takeaway menus
-bus/trolley maps/schedules
-theatre tickets/stubs/programmes
-postmarked envelopes from your old bills
-of course anything related to Doctor Who, Torchwood, or the BBC would be perfection
-book, telephone, magazine, catalogue, newspaper pages/ads

I've had some wonderful responses already from overseas friends who are sending photos and junk and I can't wait to get started. If you can help, please contact me here so we can go over the details. It would mean so much!

Thank you, and have a great day!

Christmas 2014 Printable Journal Kit - Merry Melody

Hi lovelies! It's been a very busy week for me, I can't believe the weekend is almost here already. But I'm really excited to share the Christmas journal kit I just finished. It's called 'Merry Melody'. It's a 5x7 printable journal kit for making December daily journals or mini albums, or whatever Holiday project you want. It all started with some coffee stained paper I made and vintage sheet music I picked up recently at a thrift store...Here it is with a few close ups:

Six double-sided journal pages

Hang tags, journaling cards, embellishments
and pocket

BONUS lined pages - with image or plain for
coloured/coffee stained paper

I hope you like! You can get all the details on my website Ephemera's Vintage Garden or in my Etsy shop.

Thank you so much for visiting. Have a great weekend!

Free Printable - Christmas Journal Embellishments

Happy freebie day! Since I just finished and released the Christmas 2014 printable journal kit 'Merry Melody' I thought it would be fitting to give you an add-on for it. It's a set of embellishments to dress up your journal pages. You could also add them to greeting cards or scapbook layouts, etc. The bingo card bird shapes would make cute hang tags too! And I'll share a little lazy secret of mine - when I cut out detailed images like the birds and owls, instead of trying to fussy cut them, I leave a white trim around them. Easy peasy!

I hope you're having a happy, creative week!

Free Printable - Vintage Planner Pages

Hi lovelies! It's that time again, so let's get right to it. I've got a month-at-a-glance planner page and note pages for you today. They're designed to print on standard 8.5x11 sheets of paper so that they fold to 5.5x8.5 inches but feel free to resize to suit your needs. The monthly calendar is blank so that you can fill in the year, month and dates (and I hope you don't mind it this way, but I began the weeks with Monday, not Sunday - just a little quirk of mine). The note pages can be printed on the back of the calendar or on their own. They coordinate with the 'Endless Love' collection I just released earlier this Fall.

Now I'm off to plan the upcoming Christmas journal kit. I'll keep you posted on my progress and planned release date.

I hope to see you back here soon. Happy Halloween!
