Thank You, magical Graphics Fairy:

A handful of the images I used here are courtesy of
The (fantabulous) Graphics Fairy, Karen.

Hope the downloads work well & that
these tickle your fancy,

directions for downloading can be found here

There's a card made with
these Ephemera papers here:
ephemera birthday card SU image mel stampz

P.S. The circular labels were originally meant to show details,
but the are high resolution, so they're printable if you like them.

P.P.S. Found out my elbow is not fractured like I thought,
it's just smashed up a bit. Thank you so much for your well
wishing! oxo. Curious how clumsy I am? ... Well, I woke up at
5:00 am to feed Mouse (the hungry cat beast) and when I went
back to bed I misjudged the distance of the wall by a couple of feet
and smashed with my weight behind me into the wall with the old
funny bone (but it's not so funny, now, is it?) Well yeah, sort of is! ;-)

Margie said...

Wow and greater WOW! I feel like a kid in a sweet shop - don't know which one to go for first. They are all so good and I love your card - did you hand sew that or use the machine? It looks fab. Can understand you losing your balance with the elbow problem - funny how it totally affects your co-ordination. Hope it improves soon and thanks again for everything!

Dawn said...

ACK! your elbow story hurts me! glad it's not 'broken' broken!!!

love the stitching, always amazing! fab papers once again too!


Tine said...

Marianne said...

Oh, love these. Will be back later this week to download them. Love the circular labels, too. Happy to hear your arm is not fractured, but I guess it will still take some time to heal. I'm always afraid that one day my husband will fall down the stone steps in the house because of our cats. He's always in a hurry coming up or down, but the cats always outrun him, flying past just in front of his feet, always thinking there's some food to be had...

Glennis F said...

Thank you so much - I can't wait to use them

Lisa R. said...

Love these. TFS

Kathlene said...

Mel, there are many talented designers out there, but you are by far the sweetest and most generous.

Here's to speedy elbow healing vapors wafting your way. xoxo

Thank You Very Much!
Our Cat is always crying for food and running under our feet and trying to trip us up. I always make him go down the stairs first!

emelyn said...

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Hi Mel,
I found your link on Pinterest and have downloaded the Ephemera papers, they are wonderful. Thank you so much. When I am able I will make a card using them and post onto my Pinterest boards and link to you. By the way, I love the stitching you do around the shapes within the papers, I cannot wait to see how you have used it for a card yourself.
All the best Linda

Lisa's ESL Site said...

Hi Mel, thank you so much for your generosity, I simply adore the Ephemera papers. Just a quick question, would you have these papers in a smaller size? If you do, please let me know so that I can come back and download them. If not, my email is It's because I'm trying to use them as binder spines but when I shrink them down from the other sizes, the papers become all squished and funny looking.

Looking forward to your reply! Thanks again!
