Free Printable Index Cards Vintage Look High Res

Who doesn't love and use index cards right? I use them for everything and as I was writing one of my to do lists today I thought, wouldn't it be cute and fun to make index cards a little less boring a lot more fancy?

Yes... yes, it would.

 So, I decided to make some vintagey looking index cards with great texture and subtle color in a sort of shabby chic look.  Think of all the potential these have.  Print them off "as is" on card stock and write handwritten greetings on them.  Doll them up by adding some of your own graphics in Photoshop and then printing them for personal use in your scrapbooks etc.

Oh the possibilities from a meager little 3x5 index card inspiration.

These are high-res - click the image to view it, then right click and "view image" to get the larger sizes for the best quality print.  These are 3x5 inch standard index card size.

Enjoy!  and PLEASE share on social media if you love my site/blog.  I need your help to spread the word.  Because I give stuff away free I don't have an advertising budget ;).  Thanks for your help and consideration.

Free Gift Printables for Redbox

This is a cute idea that you can use for last minute gift ideas for co-workers or even kids stocking stuffers.  Redbox offers the ability to buy promo codes for free movies in bulk.  I believe 5 free DVD rentals cost me $7.50. 

I had the codes emailed to myself and then I put a code on the cards below and give them out.  Very cool and fun idea - cheap and can be put together in 5 minutes :)

Here's the direct link to purchase movie codes from Redbox. Buy Bulk Promo Codes 

Print out the little gift cards on high quality card stock or photo paper (approx 2.5 x 3.5) customize and hand out to everyone you know :) 

Special thanks to All Free Downloads for the cute little ticket graphic I used to make these for you.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas

Free customizable wine bottle graphics

Today's freebie is a set of wine bottle graphics with blank labels you can customize.  Use them for scrapbooking, making cards, stickers, buttons or whatever you like.

I left the labels blank except for a couple of vintage Victorian bow and flower embellishments at the corners.  I also added plenty of gradient and shading to give the bottles dimension. 

You are free to use them however you wish.  If you want to offer them on your blog, you must link to this original post and not simply post my graphics on your own site.  If you create something with them, please share.  I love to see how my work is used :)

Thanks and enjoy! I think they are festive enough for Christmas, but versatile enough for nearly anything.

How to Sell More at Craft Fairs

So, you want to get more sales at craft fairs and festivals? I spent several years doing shows before moving my projects online.  In that time, I learned a lot of neat tips and tricks - from how to set up booths visually, to how to network effectively with other vendors.

Of course, I also saw a lot of bad examples and learned what you should NOT do as well - ever. 

I wrote a very long craft fair vendor guide that I published on HubPages.  I hope you will enjoy the information and of course, if you have other tips that have brought you success, please leave them in the Hub comments to help other vendors.

I love the idea of craft fairs, but for me it became too much work with all my other obligations so I gave them up to focus full time on my writing and design career.  Anyway, the information is still valuable to those who do want to do craft fairs full time.
