Now that so many good scrapbooking image designers are Internet savvy, the Web is full of free scrapbook graphics that can be downloaded for no charge. That means all you need to know is how to do an Internet search and download files and you can find all the materials you need to create delightful scrapbooks. That's why popular artist Mary Englebreit recently remarked that the Internet is a great source of digital scrapbook materials that will yield nearly anything you might need. And she's an authority on quality images; products featuring her graphics on them fly off the shelves as soon as they're released!

Here are some of the types of free scrapbook images available:


The holidays are great subjects for scrapbooking, since those are the occasions when many of us create some of our most lasting memories. And Christmas, Easter, Halloween and Valentine's Day aren't the only holidays that make people want to create scrapbooks; many people are interested in the minor holidays too. You can find lots of patriotic scrapbooking papers and embellishments on the Web for holidays such as Veterans Day, Fourth of July, Memorial Day and Flag Day. There are also many images out there for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Earth Day and any other holiday you can think of; even the off-beat and downright bizarre ones.


More and more people seem to be searching for vintage scrapbook designs. That could be because antique art is so timeless and creates such gorgeous results. Antique greeting cards make perfect vintage scrapbooking embellishments, as do clipart images from years gone by. And if you're fortunate enough to find vintage designs on digital scrapbook papers, you'll have the best of both worlds. Antique art also covers a range of subjects, including images as diverse as these pretty vintage airline posters, vintage flower baskets, Victorian fashion illustrations, magic show posters and old sailing ships. So whatever subject you're trying to cover in your scrapbook, you can probably find antique art to match.

Floral and Butterfly

I've definitely noticed that scrapbookers love flowers, and why not? They're appropriate for almost any occasion. Butterflies attract a large audience too, because they represent summertime, freedom, happiness and other cheerful things. Flowers and butterflies are also diverse, because an abundance of them can be found as both illustrations and photos, and in modern and vintage styles. You can even find some free vintage butterfly scrapbook papers that have coordinating modern and vintage designs available in the same collections.


Weddings and scrapbooks were naturally made to go together, because wedding photo albums have always been traditional anyway. But if you can make it a wedding scrapbook instead, you can preserve your memories in an even more creative way. There are many good free wedding scrapbook images online that will allow you to create one of these very special mementos with no or little cost. And if you can't find any specifically for weddings, flower images can also give you a pretty look.


As is the case with wedding ceremonies, tiny tots invite the taking of photos. And what scrapbooker wouldn't want to pass down a beautiful baby scrapbook to her child as he or she gets older? Fortunately, you can find a huge selection of scrapbooking designs for babies. If you haven't looked at baby images for a while, though, you might find the color schemes a little surprising these days. Chocolate brown, burnt orange and red are popular, as are various shades of green. Of course, you can still find lots of blue and pink, it's just that you can find a lot of bolder color choices too.

So the next time you go looking for scrapbook images, check out what's available on the Internet. You might be pleasantly surprised at the free images you'll find.
