Vintage Advertising Collage Sheets

One day last summer, my hubby and I went out "thrifting", we stopped at an antique store and after poking around the place for an hour or so, I ran across some really old magazines... Ladies World, Ladies Home Journal and The Domestic Journal. They date from 1895 - 1913, so you can imagine how fun they are to look at and read. Actually, I was amazed at what great shape they were in for being that old.

I've been pain-stakinly scanning these old beauties and have made several printable collage sheets with them. I hope to do more with them as time moves along.

Let me know what you think, by leaving a comment, or if you have any ideas for printables made with these, please be sure to let me know.

These can all be found on my website,

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Deena:) Nice prints. Lucky you to find those magazines. What about lamp shades? That's the first thing that popped into my head. Bandanas?

Those are great! I just discovered a 1912 cookbook, which is a clever disguise for a book of old advertisements. I'll definitely have to scan mine in too!
