Pay It Forward

I wouldn't have been able to set up my business without the generosity of those on the web that offer free digital downloads. Although I do purchase a significant proportion of my images, many I obtain free of charge from wonderful people such as Karen from Graphics Fairy.

I also have in my collection a few items that I have found myself at flea markets and antiques fairs, so, moving forward I am going to be offering FREE EPHEMERA from my own personal collection for you to download for your digital collages, cardmaking or ACEO's.

This reverse of a Victorian photograph would make a super background for all sorts of projects! I love the delicate scroll decoration down the edges and the symmetry of the overall design.

Another superb background. You could use the whole image or if you are a whizz with photoshop you could remove parts of it such as the signature or the charming illustration to the left.

I particularly love this one because it has the address of Attercliffe Road in Sheffield - where I live! Sheffield that is, not Attercliffe Road. Though the name sounds familiar... Another lovely background image in subtle tones.

If you are at all familiar with my designs you will recognise this background!! A truly romantic backdrop for all sorts of things to be layered over. I use this one for my Studio Rose design and Love bird design.

Well that's it for now. Do check back in as I delve through boxes and find more treasures for you :)


  1. They are lovely, and it's so generous for you to share.
    I love the way you've used them in your designs.

  2. Thanks Sam,

    A slowly adding more images, so check back in again soon....

  3. Thanks for sharing these Claire. I have taken a copy for use with crafting. Hope that is ok.
    Florence :)
