Free Vintage Flowers Scrapbook Paper

Click the free vintage flowers scrapbook paper to see a larger version

This pretty free vintage flower scrapbook paper is neutral enough to be useful for a variety of uses but still has enough color to be cheerful. While I'm not a flower expert, I think I can identify some of the flowers. There are pretty deep-pink camellias and white and light pink cabbage roses, blue forget-me-nots (a favorite of Victorian ladies), and there might even be some small pansies in the flower strings used to form the lattice pattern. As to the rest of the flowers, you're on your own!

Like with many vintage flower patterns, this would probably look great when paired with stripes on the same scrapbook page, similar to the way a room looks when two wallpaper patterns are used above and below a chair rail on a wall. You'll find some nice pastel-colored striped papers on my Mother's Day scrapbook paper hub. They come in subtle blue, dusty pink and pale yellow colors that would match well with this design.

Free Vintage Fruit Crate Label Embellishment

I got a kick out of the "carefree" woman on this vintage fruit crate label, so I thought it would be fun to post her for others to enjoy too. She's perfect for the start of summer, when so many people are venturing out on vacation or just plain relaxing. I bet she'll find her way into many vacation scrapbooks!

I like vintage fruit labels because they're usually so colorful and have lots of personality. This one is a bit subdued color-wise, but her smiling face makes up for that. If you like vintage labels, too, hop on over to my Vintage Holiday Crafts blog to see a large selection of vintage fruit crate labels. There are also some great vintage cigar labels you'll probably find useful.
