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!

More Paper Packs on Etsy!

I just wanted to give you an update on the new stuff I've got in the shop this week. Last week's paper packs sold out! I can't thank you ladies enough for that!

Here's a sneak peek into this week's packs:

There are Christmas and everyday packs and they're full of goodies, as you can see! You can check them out in my Etsy shop here.

Plus, I'm also offering printed journal kits now too. All of my printable journal kits are available in printed format, on high quality colour laser paper!

And finally, I'm working on art journal/mixed media creativity packs too! These will have original painted and inked background papers and more. They'll be so great for art journaling and other projects! Stay tuned for more details on those as well. They're taking some time to make :)

In the meantime, I hope you're having a creative week!

Free Printable - Autumn Journal Pages

Hi lovelies! How has the weather been in your part of the world? It's been raining lots here. But somehow between the downpours, the leaves got raked and the garden is ready for its winter slumber.

I've got something different for you today. It's a set of 5x7 journal pages, made from sheet music I scanned from a vintage children's song book. These would be great in a seasonal junk journal, or even as a background in any Fall project.

Once again, I'm so grateful that you stopped by. Thanks so much, and I hope to see you again soon!

All New! Junk Journal Paper Packs

I'm happy to announce that I'm now offering junk journal paper packs in my Etsy shop. There are several reasons I've decided to do that.

1) I don't like hoarding supplies. Clutter bothers me and storage space is minimal in my home, so I like to use what I have and if I can't, then I need to move it out before it piles up.

2) I really enjoy the process of gathering the paper goodies and embellishments for journal making but I never have enough time to make all the books I'd like. So I often end up with file folders containing colour coordinated papers and bits that just sit there for months.

3) I'm a tree hugger and junk journals allow you to repurpose and recycle in the funnest way. I think these habits are better than always hitting the major craft stores for large hauls. I'm on a mission to use up as much of my old books, office supplies, etc, and I encourage everyone else to do the same.

4) Because I design digitals regularly, I'm often testing them on paper and don't always have the right personal project to use them up in.

And so, putting these paper packs together for you feeds all these needs for me! All the sets are different. They contain at least 70 items (sometimes more) and can be used to create one junk journal or to add to other ones you're making.  There are patterned paper pieces, vintage book pages, scraps of paper, doilies, printables, various embellishments, etc. I've tried to include interesting bits in each package to spark your imagination. And I've made a few Christmas theme packs for those who like to make December Daily journals ahead of time. This first batch is going fast, but here's a sample of what's left:

So maybe you're new to junk journal making and you want some inspiration, you don't have alot of supplies on hand or you're just bored with your current paper stash. Just stop by Ephemera's Vintage Garden on Etsy and have a look. These packs could be just the thing to get your started!
