Don’t know how, but I just came across your blog and I am having a ball looking around at all the wonderful images you have posted. You really inspire me, because I too am a country gal and from one country woman to another, you have great ideas and taste!! I want to thank you for all the “free bees”. You are very kind and generous. I have no doubt some of the things I see are going to end up in my home!
I have a bit of a 'vintage ephemera' obsession of late.  I am in love with the pretty journals I see on Instagram that use old botany/floral images and vintage ladies.  So I have had a look around the internet and found the ten best free vintage ephemera printables / digi scraps sites for use in your planners, smash books, journals, collage art, mixed media and scrapbooks. Have fun browsing, scrapping and journaling through my 10 favourite ephemera freebie sites.
About TheSwagElephant:  I started The Swag Elephant as I was planning my best friend’s bachelorette party.  We were going to Las Vegas and I was super inspired by “the Hangover” and wanted to create some sort of fun accessory for the bachelorette party attendees.  I decided to create gold foil temporary tattoos that say “bride tribe” and “wolf pack” and they came out great! They stayed on in the pool and the ladies loved them, especially the bride.

If your customer would be benefitted by having the high-res or high color print professionally printed, suggest it. Even if it’s at your local Staples® make the suggestion to save them time and aggravation. If your products are business forms, to-do lists, etc., a home printer will do, so let them know. Have your cover sheet also include any specific instructions about your product, and a thank you.
Do you need a great last minute handmade gift for the traveler in your life? If so, this personalized vintage map stationery set is the perfect fit. For this stationery kit you need white A6 envelopes, white text weight paper and cards stock paper and your customized PDFs of the three printables. Start by downloading and installing the free font Museo Slab which you can download here. When you double click and open both the belly band and the note card PDFs, you can simply click onto the text and edit with your own copy and the name and monogram of the recipient. The envelope liner does not have any text so these are ready to print onto a text weight paper. I like to print my belly bands onto text weight as well and of course the note cards onto cards stock. Once printed, trim all of the pieces to assemble your stationery set. Maybe when you are done you can print a set for yourself too. Enjoy! ~ Lia

Glossy Labels. This material is often used by the food and beverage industry. This material is very flexible and is water-resistant. The material though needs to be laminated so that the ink and the label stays intact and does not run.Transparent Labels. When you want to achieve the “no label” look, this is the best choice. They often have very good adaptability to adhesives and so they are very hard to tear or rip.Foil Labels. This is often used when you want to achieve a metallic look on your label. Sometimes, a UV coating is even added to make the silver pop more.

Well it is also cost effective. A lot less expensive to purchase a download and then print it yourself on your home printer, at your local printshop, or online through a website. I don't know if it's more of an impulse purchase. I think it is attractive to people that like DIY projects. By using a downloadable file you have a lot of options for printing as opposed to only have it printed in one way.
Putting a label on a bottle is not just printing out vintage label templates you find online and pasting it on the bottle. There are still a number of factors you have to consider. One such thing is the material you use for the label. The bottles often are exposed to different things and so things like condensation, adhesion, product handling, etc., need to be considered when choosing the material you use for the label.

Sarah loves doing whatever she can to help busy moms by providing them with the organizational tools they need. Often customers’ needs are slightly different from her product so she offers customization. This is hard to balance with the overall business because custom work in any business can be very time consuming. Sarah counters this struggle with requiring a minimum amount for custom products so that each order is worth the time she puts in.

There’s just something about a paper greeting card that never loses its charm for some of us. We like to hold the greeting in our hands, feel the crisp paper, run our fingers over the words and pictures as if we were trying to absorb the essence of the message. Most of all we like to see the handwritten notes and the signatures of our loved ones. While ecards may be viewed instantly and forgotten over time, printed cards can be saved, cherished and shared for years. Although ecards have replaced printed cards in many instances as the more convenient, inexpensive and quick mode of wishing one another, printed cards still retain that special quality that electronic messages cannot convey effectively.

Totally understand. Currently I am selling digital abstract designs so not photography. So while colors are still important it’s a bit different then photographs. Obviously part of the photography process is retouching in Photoshop and all your hard work can go down the drain if someone went and printed your work incorrectly. So printing yourself is obviously the way to go for photography.


I sell physical prints mostly out of the fear of someone reselling. Like you said, they could still do that with a physical copy by scanning but at least that’s a little more of a hassle. I’d also hate to see my art printed on shitty paper or the colors are completely off because the buyer (or print service they use) doesn’t put in the effort to get the colors just right.

I wanted to be that girl. Even though I had achieved my first dream at that point where I was able to make all my money online as a virtual assistant basically, I was still trading hours for dollars. I knew that my finances would take a hit as a result of taking a vacation. I did NOT want to feel like my money was running out while I was traveling. I did NOT want to come home broke.

One more of my vintage illustrations: this time shabby-looking old fashioned retro photo camera. Illustration is based on my father's old Fujifilm finepix x100 camera. I had never used  this camera, I prefer instant digital photos. I can't imaging paying on each and every photo, just to see it. But I like vintage things and vintage clip art and I enjoy to share my finds.

Like we said, getting a greeting through the mail is becoming more and more of a special occurrence seeing as cell phones and e-mail make it faster than ever to reach loved ones.

I have a story for you and it is not about how I suddenly woke up, decided I wanted to make a bunch of money on Etsy selling printables and became an overnight success. This is a story of how I sloowwwwlllllyyyyyy came to the realization that success on Etsy as a "Printables girl" was POSSIBLE for me. Once I got to THAT point, then yes, things took off from there. But, let's start at the beginning...

If you don’t have a print at home option just save the JPEG files to your computer and upload them onto a site like walgreens.com to print them online. They are specifically formatted to fit into an 8×10 inch frame. If you want to and know you you are certainly welcome to change the size although printing quality my be reduced at sizes larger than 8×10

Periods in a logbook, (for example, years and months) are more often than not, however not really, synchronised with the cycle of the sun or the moon. The most widely recognised kind of Printable Calendar Templates pre-current timetable was the lunisolar schedule, a lunar date-book that at times adds one interplanetary month to stay synchronised with the sunlight based year over the long haul.
Digital stamps are like any .png file. They can be resized in a photo editing program, which means you can choose a size to suit the card or layout or craft item you have in mind! Once they have been printed out, digital stamps can be used in much the same way as traditional stamps. They can be colored and embellished. The finished images can be cut out and incorporated into handmade cards, gift tags, scrapbooks and a whole wide range of papercraft projects.

A great tip Sarah shared was to encourage independence in smaller children so they can be playing alone and entertained at least for a short time while you do some work. Sarah has been able to achieve her goal of making a part-time income on her own terms with lots of flexibility. Although she tries to continually create new products, she knows that her business was built to allow for flexibility and put her family first.  So Sarah doesn't stress if she can't add new products for a while.  Her business works for her – not the other way around!
My Plan, Do, Review kit continued to sell, but I had another collection of useful templates bubbling in my mind. Before I had even ever started this blog, I had been using a system called the Ultimate Life Binder as a way to keep track of my life. It was my central hub for setting goals, measuring my progress, and generally just being aware of where I was, where I was going, and what I was working on a day to day basis. It was comprised of life-management printables that I had printed out from my findings on the web and some that I had created myself to suit me even more personally. 

About BossLadyPrintables:  I’ve been a project and program manager for over 10 years now, with a diverse background working in multiple Fortune 500 companies. I became interested in creating career-focused printables after searching Etsy for specific types of files and coming up empty. I was looking for digital downloads that I felt were professional enough for a formal office setting and that I could use confidently, with clean and modern design elements.
