American Beauties Stationery

When Harrison Fisher published his famous book “American Beauties” in 1909, with 21 gorgeous portraits of contemporary beautiful ladies, E. Stetson Crawford contributed with the illustrations to the volume. I have used some of Crawford’s illustrations to design a complete line of free printable American Beauties Stationery:

For the envelopes I also included a liner and a seal:Wings of Whimsy: American Beauties Stationery #vintage #ephemera #printable #freebie #stationery

And here are the individual pieces:

Print these out to restock your stationery drawer, or to create a nice gift set for a friend. Mine were printed on plain 80g paper.

I will show you soon how I have used an old book to create a dedicated stationery folder, until then you might like to keep your stationery in one of my Accordion Organizers (click on image below to see the original post with tutorial):

    1. Thank you Dear 🙂 I’m feel like I don’t deserve your lovely compliment, since this stationery was really very easy to design 😛 I guess the initial idea to use book illustrations and the skill to transfer them onto printables, are my contribution to creating something new out of something old 😉 xoxoxo

  1. Wow, i love this stationery and that seal and envelope along with it! Such pretty designs! We have to start writing more these days with all the virtual messages taking over as where would we be without receiving such pretty papers with lovely letters written by hand?! Thank you for sharing, yet again! You’re such a busy bee, as usual! Can’t wait to print this one too and start using it!! Blessings and big hugs from the Netherlands,
    Ingeborg
