If you watched my Listing Journal flip through & tool box video then you'll know that currently I'm obsessed with ephemera. These little packs of die cuts and cute things can become expensive...but for the most part they are worth it!

I've been loving these little guys to add a bit of flair and add to the story of the page I'm working on in my Listing Journal. I haven't been sticking to one collection of ephemera, I've been loving mixing and matching the different sets I have to create a unique look. But, gathering up a bunch of sets can get expensive (like I mentioned above!) so I decided to make some of my own...and share them with you today!
FreePik.com, imported them into my current favorite design software, Inkscape, and created an offset around each image for easier cutting using my Cricut Explore. I love my Cricut Explore for paper crafting and this project is perfect!
I've created a set for you to download from the link above that includes two PNG files, a PDF file and a Silhouette file. If you have a Cricut Explore (or Cricut Explore One or Cricut Explore Air) one of the PNG files has a 'key' with all the images included in the ephemera pack so you can store your ephemera together and still know whats in the little pack. I store mine in those little plastic zipper bags you can find in the jewelry section of the craft store and these little 'keys' (often found on the back of the packaging of commercial ephemera packs) help me know exactly what is in the little baggy. To cut with your Cricut Explore, simply size the width to 5.5 inches. To cut with your Silhouette open the Studio file and adjust your cut settings to be at a depth for cutting card stock.
I'll be sharing my lists over the next few days (when I remember) over on my Instagram. So go follow me there.
Have you started a listing project? What are some of your favorite ephemera packs?
