Vintage Valentines

Who doesn't like vintage valentines?  I just finished doing up some vintage valentine ATC's for a swapbot swap. There are unlimited resources on the Internet for vintage inspiration and lots of freebies.

The Frugal Crafter has this sheet of valentine kewpies for downloading here.  She made lovely little lollipop covers with them. 


Altered Stuff has a wonderful collage sheet of vintage valentines that can be downloaded in pdf or jpg format

Scrappiles has digital scrapbooking freebies including a sheet of cute vintage cut-outs.


If you want to send vintage ecards, West Virginia University Library has put together a selection of valentine cards and postcards.    This is a sample from their collection:


The valentines that I used fort my ATC's were from Zwani graphics.  This site has html code ready to cut and paste so that you can add a wonderful vintage valentine to your site!

Nice, I love vintage valentines. I was lucky enough to stumble upon a big bag of them at the thrift store a couple of weeks back. If you like vintage clipart, here is a great site http://etc.usf.edu/clipart/
Thanks for the link to your blog.

Thanks for sharing all these great links. I liked the Kewpie clip art so much that I made a Valentine with it. I just posted it on my site and linked to your site in the post. :)
