Free Vintage Mother's Day Scrapbook Paper and Embellishments

Once again we're coming up on the day that we honor Mom every year, Mother's Day. Unfortunately, my mom has been gone a long time. But if she were here I know she would really appreciate it if I made something for her with some of these free Mother's Day scrapbook papers and embellishments. And they're not just for scrapbooking; they can also be used for making handmade cards and other crafts.

Oddly enough, the inspiration for these embellishments and papers was the master bedroom in the house I inherited when my mother died. I grew up in the house and hadn't lived there for many years. In the years that I was gone, my mother had "decorated" the house in her own style (decorating wasn't her long suit), so when I moved in I practically gutted the place. I removed all the carpeting to reveal the original wood floors, painted and wallpapered the walls and replaced all the window treatments. I paid special attention to my bedroom, because I considered that my sanctuary.

I still remember the pale yellow striped wallpaper that sat below a white wooden chair rail that circled the room. I loved that wallpaper because it was such a sunny yet subtle color and it matched with the other Victorian-look ice cream colors in the room. The yellow striped scrapbook paper you'll find on this page is very similar to that wallpaper.

The other scrapbook papers, and the embellishments, also hark back to that decorating scheme. Using images from Vintagerio, I infused them with an old-time feel that I hope moms everywhere will love. If you like those images, scroll down to see the Vintagerio link. It's a great site that offers unlimited downloads of over 15,000 images for one low price.
