Free Birthday Scrapbook Paper

free teal star burst birthday scrapbook paperClick on the free birthday scrapbook paper to see it full size.

This free star burst birthday scrapbook paper is part of a much bigger collection of free papers designed just for birthday scrapbooks. (Of course, you can also use them for wrapping small birthday gifts, like CDs!) To see the entire collection, please click the link in the first sentence of this paragraph or the ad in the sidebar.

There are three distinct designs in the collection but this one is the most colorful and downright exuberant. The design also comes with a magenta background and both colors also have versions with just stars (no "Happy Birthday!"), and stars and stripes. That means these more generic papers can be used for other purposes besides birthdays, such as Father's Day, Mother's Day or even Fourth of July.

As with all my other papers, this collection was designed using Picnik.com, the free online graphics program anyone can use. I highly recommend it! To learn how to use Picnik to design your own art, read my tutorial that explains how to make your own art.

I hope you have as good a time using this free birthday scrapbook paper as I had creating it! Please come back soon to download more free scrapbooking supplies.

Free Creepy Spiders Halloween Scrapbook Paper

free Halloween scrapbook paperClick on the free Halloween scrapbook paper to see it full size.

I had a blast designing this creepy spider black Halloween scrapbook paper and all the companion designs featured on my new Halloween paper crafts hub. There's something about playing with creepy-crawlies without having to get your hands dirty that's just a lot of fun.

The full collection contains scrapbook papers, journaling cards and borders with the following fun Halloween themes:
  • Ghosts
  • Spiders and spider webs
  • Jack-o-lanterns
  • Skeletons
  • Witches
  • Bats
  • Skulls
  • Colorful Halloween masks
  • Frankenstein monsters
So if you're looking for free Halloween scrapbooking supplies that feature any of those subjects, you're in luck.

I've also created several free Halloween clip art collections that match some of the papers. One collection features black and white Halloween clip art, one has pumpkin images, another has full-size paper Halloween masks and another has colorful Halloween clipart.

I hope you'll come back soon to download more free scrapbooking supplies for Halloween and every other holiday or occasion!

Free Patriotic American Flag Scrapbook Paper

Click on the free patriotic paper to see it full size.

This free patriotic scrapbook paper prominently features the American flag and matches the patriotic scrapbook journaling card I posted on May 23. In fact, I just finished designing an entire collection of coordinated patriotic and military scrapbook papers and embellishments. So now if you need to create scrapbooks, handmade cards or other crafts for Flag Day, Fourth of July, Veterans Day, Memorial Day or an American election, you'll be all set.

Many of the papers I've designed would also be perfect for making handmade cards to send to a soldier in Iraq. If you'd like to do that but don't know anyone stationed in Iraq (lucky you), check out AnySoldier.com. They provide addresses to soldiers in all branches of the U.S. armed forces who have requested to be sent mail from folks back home. What a perfect way to celebrate the upcoming Flag Day and the Fourth of July holidays! With any luck, by this time next year most of our soldiers will be back home. But in the meantime, they need our support.

Come back soon to download more free scrapbooking supplies! Please see the sidebar for many more.

Free Flower Scrapbook Journaling Card Embellishment

Click on the free flower scrapbook journaling box embellishment to see it full size.

This free scrapbook journaling box matches the purple flower scrapbook paper I posted a few weeks ago. I ordinarily put lines inside the journaling boxes I design but I thought this one was so pretty without them, I left them out. Also, I thought this would make a lovely photo frame if you cut around the inside round border and the edges of the flower that fall inside the circle. If you want the lines for journaling, you can always use a ruler to add them after you print the embellishment. Or if you have Photoshop or Fireworks, you can add them to the digital art.

This journaling card is part of a much larger collection of flower scrapbook papers and embellishments I designed at Picnik.com. Click the "Free Scrapbook Paper and Embellishments" sidebar ad to see all the art. To learn how to use Picnik to design your own art, read my tutorial that explains how to create your own clip art.

I hope you have as good a time using this flower scrapbook journaling card as I had creating it! Please come back any time to download more of my free scrapbooking supplies.
