Get It Scrapped: Free Public Domain Images

Free is always good. If you are looking for the perfet little extra something for your scrapbook layout, free public domain images might just be the right thing. Public domain images run the gamut from scientific type prints to vintage valentines.

No Dog No features a photo of our kitten meeting our overzealous dog. The encounter was brief and the photo isn't the best. However, how could I resist documenting this moment! The vintage valentine was the perfect addition to the layout. It features a cat and mentions a brief greeting. To ensure that the page didn't have a Valentine's Day feel, I used products with bright pops of color not associated with the holiday.

Printing the free public domain images is easy. My printer has an option for 4x6 prints. I chose not to fit the Valentine image to the frame.This prevents part of the image from being cut off. After cutting off the excess paper, I had the die cut image you see here. Another viable option would be to use the Silhouette Portrait print to cut feature. You might also consider printing multiple images by using photo collage options from your home printer.
