I love finding freebies for my junk journal online -- but when you find something that looks amazing but is no longer available it is no fun at all! I'm looking at you, Pinterest! It seems like half the pins that promise free graphics or ephemera for junk journals are no longer active (at best) or lead to malware infested sites instead. Each of the free printables below is offered by a different designer or brand and has been verified as live as of September 2021.
