Day 29 of #useitupjuly and I’m sharing a Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial. Going through my stash and creating junk journal pages in various colors. Since I just completed the Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial and had supplies out I made the light blue page.

For this Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial, I begin by referring back to my Napkin Embellishment Tutorial. Where I used a glue stick to adhere a napkin to a piece of paper. Separate the layers of the napkin so that only the design remains. Coat a piece of paper – like the dictionary page with a glue stick, work quickly and be generous but not crazy. Lay the napkin face down and then press the page covered with the glue stick on the backside of the napkin. Press gently and it should adhere.
Next, add stitching around the edge and add a scrap of fabric for a tab. This page could be left as it is with the pretty napkin, but let’s add a little pocket. Layering scraps of paper and adding the digital images from Calico Collage along with the words from my shop create a pocket. Adhere on three sides of this piece to hold a tag or two.
Flip the page over and attach a pocket to the left side. In my case, it was a leftover piece from an old project that I didn’t use. Check out my Pocket tutorials for other ideas to use for pockets.
Attach a folded piece of paper on the right side to create a pocket. Add another piece of paper to make the top layer thicker if necessary. On my page I wanted it to be the same shade of blue so I attached a piece of text weight paper after stamping and adding stickers.
Fill the pockets with tags and booklets to journal upon and enjoy!
Making these pages has been a great way to use up leftover pieces. I like finding ways to use things instead of storing a partial sheet of stickers. Have fun using it up!
