Full 78-card deck that uses the wonderfully eccentric illustrations of Victorian artist J.J. Grandville.

Tim Holtz Distressables CDs

Three CDs, each with 300 dpi electronic artwork. Crop them, resize them, print them multiple times. Images are in jpeg or ping format, so will work for Windows, Unix or Mac.

Papers & Frames
15 vintage frames and 60 papers (in original 9″ x 9″ size — many of these were available here as physical papers, a few still are).

345 images. As you can see from my samples, the items without straight edges are saved as ping files so they are ready to drop onto a layout without doing any silhouetting by hand. Categories include vintage kitchen, crowns, postcards, stamps, games, keys, sewing, books, clocks, travel labels.

9 sets of numbers and 7 full alphabets (including a baby block alphabets; with bonus bottle caps, word brushes (for Photoshop) and vintage people).
