Vintage Holiday Crafts was born because I could never find the free images I needed. As an artist and a crafter, I found that frustrating. Some of you have let me know that you found it frustrating as well. Vintage Holiday Crafts is an ongoing attempt to address that problem. My goal is to provide as much contemporary and vintage clip art, cards and other types of art as possible, so anyone who needs free images can have them any time!
Naturally, the world being what it is, along with the fun stuff there have to be some rules. But I’ve kept them pretty simple and many site visitors have told me they think they’re very fair. You’ll find all of them below.
Thanks for visiting Vintage Holiday Crafts!
P.S. I especially enjoy it when people leave comments and tell me how they use the images, so please feel free to do so.
Use of Vintage Holiday Crafts images automatically indicates your acceptance of the following terms.
- use these images to create e-cards to send to individuals or a non-commercial list;
- incorporate any of the images into craft projects, either for your own use or for sale, as long as no more than 5 images are used and no more than 50 products are produced;
- print the images to use as personal greeting cards;
- incorporate up to 5 images in newsletters or other print pieces;
- use up to 5 low resolution images (you must reduce them so they aren’t at their original size) as clip art on any given page of a commercial or non-commercial site, blog, forum or discussion group as long as this link (or one with similar wording) is somewhere nearby to each image or group of images:

Please note that linking the image itself DOES NOT count; it must be a text link. Please download the image to your hard drive and then upload it to your site or blog; don’t use the image URL to post the image.
(Photo sharing sites like Photobucket and social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook have different rules as described in the “You may not” section below.)
If you want to post more than five (5) images on a blog or Web site, you may post one screenshot containing as many images as you’d like, as long as it is accompanied by a link to VintageHolidayCrafts.com, as indicated above. Doing that would exempt you from the rule below, but only as it pertains to Web use. Use of the images for any other project(s) would require the license described below.

If you want to produce 1,000 or more of any product using our images, please contact me using the e-mail address at the bottom of the page for a quote.
You may not
- sell these images outright;
- incorporate them as-is into scrapbook kits (they must be altered in some way and you must purchase the license mentioned above);
- incorporate the altered images referred to in the previous line into commercial use or scrap-for-hire scrapbook images (they must be clearly marked for personal use only);

- post them to Photobucket, Flickr or any other image sharing sites, unless this link is somewhere near EACH image: Image courtesy VintageHolidayCrafts.com;
