Vintage Calendar Frame & Templates for Photo Frames

Well, here's a few more goodies for the template, frame and calendar fans. First up, a simple calendar template, uniquely vintage because...well the framing is vintage.

This is a scanned photo frame - the kind that fold over and cover the picture, like a small booklet. Turning the frame on it's side so the blank cover is on the bottom gives you room to add a yearly calendar. Which is what I did.

Although the calendar is for 2011, it has been given the same vintage feel as the original vintage photo frame.  This template is in png format rather than psd, so to use it simply open your image in photoshop, then open the png and place it over your image, keeping in mind that since the entire calendar frame is going to be larger than your image size you may need to add some canvas to your image background.

Along with the calendar template, here are a few film slide frames - once again my dad's hobbies have provided me with some cool imagery. These too are contained on one large png (with transparent background), so you can copy whichever frame you want to use into your image file and adjust it to fit. There are four of these - the "ektachrome" marked frame is the same as the plain frame, the plain one simply being the "back" of the other.  Please keep in mind that a couple of these contain trademarks, so if you intend to use them for any other purpose than personal use, you'll need to either remove the trade marks (clone them out) or you'll need to seek permission for the use from the trademark owners.

Okies...the final stuff for today are  two vintage photo frames in png format - one is the same frame used above for the calendar (without the calendar) and the other is a very similar frame design. The designs on these frames are from the 1930s and early 1940s, as were the original photos contained in these folding frames.

If you print these frames on artist's rag paper, you get an "old time" feel from these and will be able to use the fold-over section. If you don't want the added section, simply crop it away at the fold and use just the frame portion. Print the slide frames on heavier card stock if you want a more authentic feel for the frames (print a front & back, cutting away the center sections) and insert your photo between the two pieces.

There are more of these frames coming...but everything takes time, so until our next post I hope you can find a use for these. As always, the links to download these are below (all in png format with transparent backgrounds).
