The Best Online Resources for Free Digital Scrapbooking Materials

Embarking on a digital scrapbooking project is an exciting creative journey, but sometimes the cost of materials can add up. Fortunately, the internet is a treasure trove of free resources. In this post, we'll explore some of the best online destinations where you can find free digital scrapbooking materials, from papers and embellishments to fonts and templates.

1. British Library on Flickr
If you're looking for vintage ephemera in the public domain, look no further than the British Library on Flickr. I love browsing through their images looking for something interesting and inspiring.


2. Brusheezy

For those looking for unique brushes and textures, Brusheezy offers a wide range of free Photoshop brushes. These can add artistic effects and textures to your digital scrapbook pages.

3. FontSquirrel
For fonts, FontSquirrel is my go-to resource. It offers an extensive collection of free fonts in various styles, all allowing commercial use. You can find the perfect for adding that special touch to your scrapbook.


4. Canva

Canva isn’t just for designing; it also has a large library of free graphics, photos, and elements that can be incorporated into your scrapbook. The drag-and-drop interface makes it user-friendly, especially for beginners.

5. The Graphics Fairy

The Graphics Fairy specializes in vintage images, offering a wide array of free downloadable graphics perfect for adding a touch of nostalgia to your pages. From antique maps to vintage botanical prints, there's something for every retro-themed project.

Obviously the best source for free digital scrapbooking elements and papers is right here at! This site has been offering free daily downloads for over a decade and we don't plan to stop any time soon :)

I've been hesitant to use Canva, seems it will be another learning curve. I'm still learning PSE.

Thanks Marisa, sites like this are always helpful. Here I have further license-free or public domain designer link recommendations from German-speaking countries, which can also be easily translated into other languages. But everyone recognizes pictures in their own language ;) royaltyfrei-bilder-mit-cc0-und-kostenlos/
