A few weeks ago I was asked to make a Mermaid Planner Junk Journal for a friend. She wanted this as a gift for a dear friend of hers. After asking a few questions I had an idea of how I would make this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal and I began the task.
Here is a list of a few of the items used in this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal.
- A Mermaid Tale, digital journal kit from Calico Collage

- Enchanted, digital journal kit from Calico Collage
- Planner from Dollar Tree
- Various rubber Stamps
- Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven
- Dictionary pages

- Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists let them know how you found them in your order.
- Handmade stencil using my Circut and seaweed image
- Nautical fabric for the cover

- Beadsmith one step looper tool
- Fiskars 12 inch Portable Rotary Paper Trimmer

Once I had all the items selected for the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal it went together quickly. First I created a stencil using my Cricut, a seaweed image, and transparency film.
Lately, I’ve found that I really like making a stencil to match the theme of the junk journal I’m working inside. While looking around for stencil material I remembered I had a box of write on, wipe off transparency film. To me, this was the perfect material to use inside my cutter and I was right. I had to adjust the blade settings but once I figured out how to get it set things worked great.
The planner from Dollar Tree was a great help in this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal too. I wanted her to have space to write details or appointments and when I found this planner I knew it would work great inside the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal. Since there are over 200 pages inside she will have lots of room to write.
The fabric on this cover was a remnant I picked up a while back. There was just enough for the cover of one junk journal and I knew I wanted to use it for this one.
When the fabric was applied to the cover I decided that it needed more glam. That is when I used my fingers to spread around some Tulip Dimensional glitter paint. The glitter in this paint really helped to make this cover beautiful.
I enjoy making custom junk journals and this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal was no different. It was fun to see how I could add the planner part into the junk journal and I think I succeeded. My friend was very happy with this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal and I hope that the person she gave it to loves it and will use the planner. 🙂
