Free Scrapbook Embellishments

There are really two types of *FREE* when it comes to free scrapbook embellishments. The first would be finding things around your home (or your Mother's home, LOL!) that you can use to embellish your scrapbook for free. The second, which is the focus of this post, is using free digital scrapbooking embellishments on the net.

There are so many places online that you can go to in order to download free scrapbook embellishments. Most of the time you will find that you need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader to see the PDF file that the free scrapbook embellishment downloads are created in. From there, save the file to your computer and you are set to print it off. Or, you can print while viewing it. I would suggest saving the file so you have it for future use. Be sure and save the file with the name of the artist or site where you found it so you can give credit to the designer if and when you decide to post your completed scrapbook layout online or submit it to a publication for publishing. One other note about saving the files. You will find that these files are often large and
take up a lot of space on your hard drive. So, you may want to copy them to a CD or a portable hard drive instead. Free digital scrapbooking embellishments are also given in other formats so that you can use them in PhotoShop and thus manipulate them. I won't go into that too much more. There are other places with more info on this and my purpose is to talk about the embellishments, not how to use Photoshop.

You can get this lovely free scrapbooking embellishment kit from Digi-Designs by Nicole. See photo above.

In addition to digital scrapbook embellishments, there are also lots of free vintage drawings and photos that can be had online for free. As well, many other clipart items can be printed out on your home computer and used in a scrapbook layout as a scrapbook embellishment. Think on the holidays. You can get lots of suitable material online for free.

Here are some beautiful vintage images of children that can be used as scrapbook embellishments in a children's album.

This image above of a mother and child would be perfectas a scrapbook embellishment for a Mother's Day layout. Such a sweet and touching image.

Make your own stickers by finding the appropriate clipart and printing it out on sticker paper for another free scrapbook embellishment. Another idea is if you have a Xyron sticker maker then you can print it out on regular paper and run the image through the Xyron machine. Then you have a custom made sticker - perfect to embellish your scrapbook layout.

This website has lots of free clipart available. Many of them would be more than suitable for scrapbookers to embellish their scrapbook pages with. There are scrapbooking tags, scrapbook journaling spots and more.

There is no need to pay a truckload for stickers, and other scrapbook embellishments at the store. Simply use the internet to it's advantage and print off your own digital scrapbook embellishments.
