Vintage Photo Mat Frame Printable

Last week, my buddy Betsy from My Salvaged Treasures (one of my Vintage Inspiration Party co-hosts), shared a photo on her Facebook page, showing how she uses vintage photos in mats to display the gorgeous jewelry that she makes and sells.  When I spotted the frame with the gal in the fur stole, I asked Betsy if she would scan that photo and mat and send it to me, so I could share it with you all as a printable, and she sweetly agreed.

 Based on the gal’s hairstyle, I’m guessing this photo to be from the 1920’s.

I’ve removed the photo, and turned it into a PNG image, so you can “layer” your own photo behind the mat.

 This gives you an idea of how it looks afterward.  I shot this photo of one of my sons before he left for college last year.  I use Picmonkey to layer a photo inside the mat frame.

  3. I love vintage photo mats…thank you!

  4. Thanks so much, Angie! these are beautiful…and I have some great vintage photos of family members that I would love to put in these! You are so kind!

    I absolutely love these! What a great idea! My sons are mixed so we often print the photos in black and white or sepia tones simply because their features show up better. It will be such fun to print them out with these mats!

    • Glad you like them, Ericka! My oldest son and husband have really dark hair and sepia tones work better with them as well. Forget any kind of dark background – it looks like they have no hair because it just blends into the background!

  6. Love the mats Angie … so sweet of you to offer these. I am sure I can find something to use them on.

    Love this! I recently acquired a small grouping of antique photos myself, and had some thoughts along this line for displaying the rosaries I make. Great minds think alike! Old is new again.

  9. Thanks so much for sharing Angie. Love all these gorgeous frames, so many possibilities. They just don’t make them like they used to.

    I look forward to all your post. I really love your house, and your great ideas.

  12. I just recently acquired an autographed black & white photo of Farley Mowat for which I bought a simple black frame, but this would make lovely matting that would add a bit of special detail around it…something that would just show it off a bit, you know? Thank you so much for sharing this with us! And a big “thank you” to Betsy, as well!

  13. Thanks you very much. I will use it for my scrap album with pics from my parents and family in the fifties!

  14. Thank you so much! I was just looking for something like this on the net and then you post this much to my surprise! !!!!!!


  15. I visit your website almost daily, Angie. Love it.

  16. Marla Boye says

    Love, love, love the antique picture frames. I was searching for matting ideas for vintage photos never realizing that I would find the PERFECT mat

  17. I am really wondering if I could use your images like these frames for my junk journal that I like to make and sell? These are so awesome.
