EVG Free Printable and New Subscribe Button!

Sweet New Subscribe Button!

Hi lovelies! First, I want to thank you for being on the winding road of blog and website changes with me over that last year. I made some upgrades over at Ephemera's Vintage Garden to make your shopping experience as easy as possible. I also created a Members Only blog which worked for a time, until I could figure out what was best for EVG freebies moving forward. Which brings me to a few new and final (I hope) changes that I think will further simplify your time online with me.

1) I've done away with the membership process so you don't need to register and log in to access the EVG blog anymore. It was originally fuelled by the incessant copyright infringements that were happening with the free printables. I wanted to streamline the access to these goodies that I make solely for your personal projects. The result was that it doubled my workload since I've had to post here and then link to the post over there. Frankly, I'm tired and grumpy by Thursdays and really only want to make freebies for the fun of it and not add work for myself. So now, all my blog posts - freebies and otherwise, will be coming to you straight from the EVG blog and not here. It just makes sense. And if the stealers want to steal, well they'll have to deal with me and the digital watermark I've embedded into each, single, printable there. 

2) Emailed freebies and updates have returned with a nice new look. Thanks to the fancy pants little teal coloured 'Subscribe' button on the left, you can now resume getting my posts sent straight to your inbox. Just click on the button and enter your details. You'll get an instant freebie for doing it too!

No more wild goose chase to get the freebies, woohoo! Thanks for being so patient as I tried to figure out what would work best. 

Free Printable - Vintage Christmas Postcards

This week's freebie is a set of vintage postcards that I scanned and retouched slightly. They're beautiful and I thought you might like them for your Christmas journals, to make tags, etc.

Grab it here
So thanks again for sticking around. If you're in the US, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Please save me some turkey and pumpkin pie ;) I hope to see you all at the new blog soon!

Weekly Freebie and EVG Update

Free Printable - Victorian Bird Journaling Cards

These cards are an updated variation on a set of 5x7's I created a few years ago.

Grab them here

EVG Update - New Christmas Junk Journal Listings

I just listed the last of my Holiday junk journals on Etsy. I'm hoping to do a video but in the meantime here's some pics.

All three have similar covers and extra embellishments for personalising.

They can be used as a December Daily, a Holiday planner or photo album.

You can find them in the Handmade Journals section along with the others I've got listed. And if you want to get creative and make your own, I've got Christmas journal starter packs here.

I hope you're having a happy week. As always, I really appreciate you being here xo.

Weekly Freebie and EVG Update

Free Printable - Fall Forage Postcards

Today's freebie features two of my favourite things - vintage and Autumn!

Grab it here

EVG Update - Christmas Junk Journals

I've got two new junk journals listed on Etsy. It was so much fun to get some Christmas stuff out to play with! These are perfect for December Dailies or Holiday journaling/photo albums.

Both of them were made with a vintage book cover. I like to keep the covers simple - these are embellished with a gorgeous rhinestone snowflake and bronze metal corners.

I've included lots of extra embellishments so that the journals can be decorated your way. They're available now in my Etsy shop. I posted these now for those who like to start their Holiday shopping early. Journals are always a great gift idea!

New YouTube Videos

I've also posted two new videos on my channel this week. The first one is 'part 2' of my 2016 planner setup, which I'm really thrilled about. I've found a simple system that I think will work really well for me and EVG. Maybe this will help you decide if you need to up your planner game!

And then I shared a super easy journal project that I completed in a about half and hour - all I used were a pair of Moleskine notebooks and a vintage book cover.

So all in all, I had a pretty productive week! I'm off to plan next week's projects now while I sip some hot tea - it's a little chilly outside. Thank you so much for stopping by xo.

Weekly Freebie and EVG Update

Free Printables - Halloween Throwback Collection

I'm going back into the archives again this week to bring you some Halloween favourites dating back to 2011. I should be able to bring you some new freebies again very soon! Here's a peek at some of the collection available now on the members only blog:

EVG Update - New Christmas Items and Clearance

I'm currently finishing up some vintage Christmas junk journals to list in my Etsy Shop. But in the meantime, I've added new Christmas paper packs for creating your own! These were very popular last Fall so I've packaged up a few more.

They are jam packed with goodies like these! Each one is different - you can see them all in the Paper Packs section of my Etsy shop.

I've also got a clearance sale on some of the non-Holiday packs left over from the past few months. No two packs are alike and they're full of papers, embellishments and great junk journal items. You'll find them here on Etsy.

Thanks for stopping by. See you next week xo.
