Free Christmas Collage Printables for December Daily


Hi friends! I'm excited to share some new collages with you today.  After much thought, I decided against doing a December Daily journal this year.  I want to free up my time to do more fun things like watch the good Christmas movies and make cookies with  my kiddos.  I LOVE DD and think it is a great project and hope you will find inspiration from my journal last year posted HERE.  I'd love to see links for yours in the comments and maybe by next year I will have my ducks in a row again.  For now, I've spent a small amount of free time working on these collage style cards.  I'm excited to share the links to these free printables with you to help you get your projects together too. 

Y'all know I'm from South Carolina, so this magnolia card really gives me the southern feels.  :)  I paired it with a gorgeous fussy cut deer.  Find the deer image HERE.  Find the vintage magnolia image HERE.  I used my photo storage software (Google Photos) to edit the image and intensify the colors/contrast.  Here is my version.  Right click to open in a new window to save.


I used lots of scrap Tim Holtz papers from years gone by for the backgrounds.  I enjoyed using this deer illustration, which I cut as a tag.  I also fussy cut THIS vintage holly postcard from The Old Design Shop.  This blog is a great resource, but it takes time to hunt through.  I recommend pinning each page's graphic to a Pinterest board so you can find it easier later.  HERE's my printable Pinterest board.

I love a good reindeer image for Christmas!  This one was a free Graphics Fairy download with lots of other great deer images on the post HERE.  I love to pair non-Christmas vintage postcard images, labels and postage with my more Christmassy images to make my collection work harder for me.  It takes time to collect images and to prepare your files and cut the printouts, but I love how I can customize my finished work with them!

Finally, my favorite card from this batch features a stunning red bird, the Pompadour Chatterer.  You can find him HERE.  And below is my edited version.  And the gorgeous Rowan berry image is another The Old Design Shop freebie found HERE.  I use recycled cardboard boxes to build up layers in my collages for sturdy finished work.  This year I went to prescored card blanks because I found making 5x7 cards was a big waste of cardstock.  I got two sets with matching envelopes on Amazon HERE.  I hope these gorgeous images will set your ideas a spinning and wish you a very merry Christmas crafting season.  Hugs, Autumn
