Junk Journal Swap Pages

Needing some pages for a swap, it was time to make Junk Journal Swap Pages. These had to be fun! It is so fun to customize a project and using stamps is a great way to do that!

Junk Journal Swap Pages

I’m over on the Brutus Monroe Blog sharing how to Decorate Journal Pages.Using Brutus Monroe Stamp set Dreamcatching, Chameleon Pens, Sewing, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and more.

Make sure you check out the blog to see all of the supplies used. There is a video showing how to make the Junk Journal Swap Pages.

Making these Junk Journal Swap Pages is a great way to use up all those papers that you have been collecting. But maybe you don’t like them 100%. Since these were Junk Journal Swap Pages it these don’t have to match and these don’t have to be perfect either.

It was also great to use up lots of scraps of fabric that I’ve had for years. Years ago I made fabric angles and had a ton of fabric strips. After playing around with the scraps I found that these were perfect for the Junk Journal Swap Pages I was creating.

Welcome to the blog today. I’m sharing a post about Making Grateful Travelers Notebook Junk Journal over on the Brutus Monroe Blog. Using the Turkey Day stamp set from the July release I share how to make a beautiful Grateful Junk Journal.

It is important to remember the things we are grateful for daily. A great way to do that is to write inside a journal.

Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

One of my friends contacted me and asked if I would make a Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal for her. I told her yes I would! Looking through Calico Collage I found the Enchanted Journal Kit that had a few Mermaids and then I did a search on the internet for a couple more images I could use.

Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

For the cover, I used the Mermaid image from the Calico Collage Enchanted digital journal kit. This was layered on top of a pretty mermaid cardstock. Then I used some Tulip dimensional glitter paint and added sparkle to her. The sea horse is from a stamp set out of the Creative Stamping Magazine from the UK, The Sea View Collection by Sheena Douglass. These images stamp beautifully.

Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

It was fun to create some journal bling or a journal charm to go with this theme. Digging around in my jewelry making stash I found a few items to use. Visiting the local craft stores I found a letter C to add to the journal charm that I decided to make into a bracelet. She can leave it on the journal or take it off and wear the bracelet if she chooses.

Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

This Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal measures 8.25 tall by 4.25 when closed and has 18 sheets of paper for a total of 72 pages to use.

Here is a flip through video of the Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal.

Since she said, Mermaids, shells and the ocean I went to work collecting things to make the journal. Using a couple of stamp sets that had a Mermaid Images was fun to create little journal cards.

Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

While out shopping at the Dollar Tree I found these really cool sea themed stickers. I love how they shift to another image when you tilt them.

Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Love adding coloring book pages and found a few that fit the theme for this Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal.

This time around I decided to add some fold out or flip out pages. I wanted this Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal to be pretty and useful for her.

Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Another technique I tried was using small jute to tie items into the journal. I think it gives that sea feel to the elements. I also like using cheese cloth that was sprayed with Tattered Angles Glimmer mists. It reminds me of nets.

Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Most of the pages have been sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Several of the pages were stamped with a starfish and Tim Holtz Distressed Ink.

This Mermaid Travelers Notebook Junk Journal is full of lots of tuck spots and pockets. It was fun looking around for elements to add to this journal.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

Made a Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal for day 30 of #junkjournaljuly. Unicorns have always been a favorite item to collect since I was a little girl. Today I thought why not make a Unicorn themed junk journal.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

This Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal measures 8.25 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide and has 16 sheets of paper for a total of 64 pages.

Here is a flip through video of the Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal.

Supplies used for the Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal
Lawn Fawn Unicorn stamps – two different sets, Critters Ever After Clear Stamp Set, LF1218 Winter Unicorn
Mama Elephant Over the Rainbow
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists
Scraps of Ivory Cardstock from Canvas Corp Brands
Various designer scrapbook paper.
Notebook paper, graph paper, coloring book page, old maps, old book pages and more.
Die cut shapes of various types.
Ribbon and washi tape
Chameleon Pens
Tulip Glitter Paint
Book Binding Needles
Waxed Linen thread
MISTI
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven
Aleenes Tacky Glue

Lately, I’ve really enjoyed doing collages on the covers of the junk journals I make. It is a great way to use up scraps of papers by layering on the cover. This adds texture and interest.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

One day I sat and stamped the unicorn from the Lawn Fawn Winter Unicorn set and then die cut each one. The unicorns were then colored with Chameleon Pens. Using these pins really does make it easy to blend and get beautiful images. I’m still learning how to use these, but I’m very happy with what I create using these pens.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are my go to product when I want to add color to a page. I just love how it makes everything shimmer.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

Using my MISTI I was able to have perfect placement on the pages where I stamped either a Unicorn or a saying.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

My goal for 2017 is to use up what I have collected over the years. Making this Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal was another way to use up this stash. Many of the papers I’ve had for years and I was unsure how to use many of these papers. Making a Junk Journal gives me a way to use these papers up as pages or elements in the Junk Journals. My stash is starting to get a little smaller every day!

Take a look around at your stash and see what could be used in Junk Journals. You might be surprised at how easy it is to make these journals and use what you already have to make them.

How to make a Dream Big Junk Journal

Still working my challenge #junkjournaljuly and this is day 29. Today I’m sharing How to make a Dream Big Junk Journal. Using Brutus Monroe Stamps, Chameleon Pens and more.

Dream Big Junk Journal

The Dreamcatching stamp set from Brutus Monroe is super cute! When I saw this set I knew it would make a great Dream Big Junk Journal. Isn’t this a great set?

How to make a Dream Big Junk Journal
Here is a Video Showing How to make a Dream Big Junk Journal.

Supplies I used for How to make a Dream Big Junk Journal.
Dreamcatching Stamp set from Brutus Monroe
Detail Ink – Raven
MISTI
Surface Inks, Zest, and Jack O Lantern
Chameleon Pens
Tulip Glitter Paint
Book Binding Needles
Waxed Linen thread
Scraps of paper
Yellow & White Dot Reverse cardstock from Canvas Corp Brands
Various junk papers for the pages: Graph paper, an old map, mulberry paper, Designer scrapbook paper, a page out of an old dictionary and more.
Black with dot washi tape
Foam Dots or Pop Dots
Aleenes Tacky Glue
Sewing machine

Using a MISTI stamp the Dream Catcher, Fox and Dream Big on a scrap of white cardstock that will fit on the cover of a Travelers Notebook. My Travelers Notebook measures 8.25 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide when closed.

Color the images using Chameleon Pens. Don’t you just love how they blend so well?

Dream Big Junk Journal

Apply Jack O Lantern with a distress applicator around the edge, then apply Zest in the same manner.

Tulip Glitter Paint adds sparkle, add a little to the dream catcher and the fox. It is so pretty!

Collect scraps for the cover and make a collage. Attach the panel with Aleene’s glue and pop dots if necessary. Mine had a really thick piece of handmade paper so I used both.

Dream Big Junk Journal

The inside is a mix of papers that were cut 8.25 inches tall by 8.50 inches wide. These are then folded in half to make pages. Some I even sewed pockets.

Dream Big Junk Journal

Assemble the Junk Journal with Waxed Linnen thread. I like to apply little butterflies or other punched paper shapes on the strings in the center of my book. It adds a little bit of whimsy. 😉

Now admire your work! I love this little journal. I’ll be making more like this one!

Dream Big Junk Journal

This is day 29 of my personal challenge #junkjournaljuly. Only two more days left and I’ll be done! Will you miss these posts? Got an idea for another challenge? Please feel free to share an idea for me.

Travelin Through Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

This is a project that the Calico Collage Design team decided to create a Blog hop and make a Travelin Through Travelers Notebook Junk Journal to share on each YouTube channel.

Travelin Through Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Calico Collage Design Team Videos for the
Travelin Through Travelers Notebook Junk Journal
Beth Soler
Liz Caranci
Rosemary Roca
Lindsey Zenor
Carol Tinson

I created a playlist with all of the videos on my YouTube.

All six of us that participated use the same Calico Collage Digital Kit – Travelin Through in our journals. So when you visit each YouTube video you will get a different version of the same kit in a Travelers Notebook size.

The idea was that everyone could then see a big variety of how this kit could be made into a Junk Journal.

Here is the video for my Travelin Through Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Some of the items I used for the Travelin Through Travelers Notebook Junk Journal
Cardstock
Various Rubber Stamps
Distress Inks
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists
Scrapbook paper
Premade note cards that I added stamped images
Brutus Monore Be Brave Stamp set
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven
Canvas Corp junk pack of papers and scraps
Washi Tape
Journal Cards I made with stamps, and sewed fabric, and lace on as well.
Pages out of old books that were made into pockets
Die cut shapes – I used scraps of paper to cut into shapes. Great way to use up that stash!
Mulberry Paper
Sewing Machine

This Journal Measures 8.25 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide. It has 12 sheets of paper for a total of 48 pages.

Making a Junk Journal can be as simple or as complicated as you decide. There isn’t a right or wrong way to make a junk journal. It is all about what you like and what you want to use. Just select some papers and fold in half, bind together and you have a journal. It can be very simple with out all the embellishments.  Some people prefer a blank journal as they want to add the stamping and embellishments. Others want the journal full of all kinds of cool things.

Travelin Through Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

The Tag on the right was a scrap of paper that I stamped then sewed scraps of lace and fabric on top. The scraps of fabric came from my sewing group and these scraps were going to be trash! I have given these a new life.

Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Still making a journal every day for my #junkjournaljuly challenge. Here is today’s project, Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal. Using Canvas Corp Home Basics papers and Calico Collage Gypsy Love images in this one.

Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

A few weeks ago a friend gave me a large box of fabric. Some of it is really fancy like velvet, and some are simple fabrics that she used for making cosplay costumes. It was fun digging around in this box to see all the colors and textures of fabric. I picked out a small piece of crushed red velvet and knew that it would be a perfect touch on this Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal.

Sewing has always been a passion of mine. Since I learned how to sew at a very young age I really like adding sewing to projects. For the cover of this Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal, I decided to layer the Calico Collage image on top of the velvet and added some trims. Doing a zig zag stitch around the outside gives this a truly handmade feel.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are my favorite way to change or add color to paper. I have several reams of a light green linen paper that to some isn’t that pretty. but when I add the Glimmer Mists over the paper it gives it a new life.

Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal a few of the items used:
Calico Collage Gypsy Love digital journal kit.
Canvas Corp Home Basics, Red & Ivory Damask, Red & Ivory Big Stripe
Various colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists
Brutus Monroe Stamps and Ink
Tim Holtz Distressed Inks
Various stamps from my stash
Scrapbook paper, map, dictionary page, notebook paper, an Italian paper, Coloring book pages and more.
Prima Flowers
Ribbon
Fabric
Handmade Lavender Sachet

The journal measures 8.25 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide. It has 12 sheets of paper to make 48 pages. Lots of space to write in this journal. As well as places to tuck mementos.

Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Making these junk journals give me joy. When I have a completed journal in my hands I just love the way it feels. Looking at the pages, feeling the texture of the elements added.

How to make a Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Day #8 of #junkjournaljuly and I’m sharing How to make a Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal. Using Brutus Monroe Stamps & Inks, some fun paper, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and my Chameleon Pens.

Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

When I was thinking about this project, How to make a Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal I decided that I would finally use up a paper pack from Deja Views that I’ve had for a very long time. I picked this up at Big Lots a few years ago, ahem. I am not a hoarder. LOL But today it is getting a few pages used.

Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Supplies for How to make a Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal:
Brutus Monroe Stamp sets: Brutus and FriendsSnap
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink Raven, Cabbage surface ink
Dog Days paper pad from Deja Views
Chameleon Pens
Scrapbook paper, Ivory Cardstock from Canvas Corp Home Basics
Random papers; dictionary page, coloring book page, designer paper and old book pages
Ribbon
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Blarney, Moss, Dazzling Diamonds
MISTI
Craft Glue
Dymo Label maker with Black Label
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Crushed Olive
Ranger Blending Tools
Zig Two Way Glue
DOTS grass stamp
Large sewing needle for bookbinding. Can use a large upholstery needle
Waxed Linen Thread
Scissors
Jumbo Paper Clips
Awl
Scoring tool
Paper cutter
Bone Folder

Making a Junk Journal is a great gift idea. Sometimes it is hard to buy for some people as they have everything they need, but a fun Junk Journal would be something unique. You could give it ready to be written in, or you could write a story and add photos and give it as a completed journal.

Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Here is a video for How to make a Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal.

Using my MISTI and the Brutus Monroe stamps I created a scene on a scrap of Ivory Cardstock from Canvas Corp Home Basics. I even made a mask of little Bruno using a scrap of copy paper and a Zig Two Way Glue Pen. Think of a sticky note, that is what Zig Two Way Glue can do to a piece of paper. In this case, it will hold the image in place while I use distress inks and sprays on the paper.

It is a blessing to have a supportive husband and I’m so thankful that he purchased the Chameleon Pens for me at Valentines Day. I’m still learning how to use these pens, but it is so much fun.

Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

The measurements of this journal is 8.25 inch tall by 4.25 inch wide, with 12 sheets of paper to make 48 pages for this Travelers Notebook Insert. I cut my papers to be 8.25 inches tall by 8.5 inches wide or if I’m using 12 inch x 12 inch scrapbook paper I’ll sometimes leave a flap that can fold out. Good to have extra writing space right?

Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Once I have all of the papers cut and folded I then embellish. This is where the MISTI comes in handy again. I position the folded page and place the stamps I want to use on top in the MISTI. Then I’ll stamp each page that I want to have that image. In this journal, I did two different stamp image sets. I think it turned out super cute.

Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

After the pages have been stamped I spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I love how it adds color to the pages that may be white or ivory. I used shades of green as I thought dogs would want to be running free on grass.

Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

For the cover of the book, there was an embossed heart with dog print cardstock that I thought was super cute. Do you have a Dymo Label maker? This is a super handy tool when you want to create a phrase and don’t have the stamps to create it. The Dymo Label maker is so easy to use and I love the texture it gives a project. For the cover, I layered a scrap out of an old book, some scrap cardstock and a small portion of a dictionary page on the front. I used Washi Tape and then sewing to embellish.

Dog Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Once the cover and the pages have been created I then bind using Waxed Linen Thread and a bookbinders needle. I use a Pamphlet stitch to hold the pages together.

Depending on my mood will determine if I embellish the pages before I bind the book or after. I like to have the pages flat and easy to add items. But sometimes You don’t know how the placement will work unless the book is bound. I do a little of both.

Nautical Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Continuing with my #junkjournaljuly I’ve created a Nautical Travelers Notebook Junk Journal for July 6th. My idea was to share how I decorate a Travelers Notebook. Adding the ephemera and tuck spots as well as stamping.

Nautical Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

This Nautical Travelers Notebook Junk Journal measures 8.25 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide when closed. It has 15 sheets of paper folded in half for a total of 60 pages.

A few of the Items used inside this Nautical Travelers Notebook Junk Journal
7Gypsies Architextures – Trinkets – Seashore Decor 
Creative Stamping Magazine Issue 43 Stamp set
Cheese Cloth
Old Calendar images
Various papers – Map, textured, coloring book pages, graph paper, cardstock, mop up paper, notebook paper and scrapbook paper. There isn’t a limit to the type of paper you use.
Sewing Machine
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Blue Bubbles, Denim Blue
Waxed Cotton Cord from Canvas Corp Home Basics
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink and Cornflower Surface Ink
MISTI
Note cards
Navy & Ivory Chevron is from Canvas Corp Brands

Here is a video showing How to make the Nautical Travelers Notebook Junk Journal.

Isn’t the 7Gypsies Architextures – Trinkets – Seashore Decor a perfect touch for the cover? I added a some Brutus Monroe Surface ink – Cornflower on top of the Welcome Mermaid. It deepened the color. I just love the texture.

For this Nautical Travelers Notebook Junk Journal, I decided to pull some blue scrapbook papers from my stash. These pages reminded me of the water and I knew that the print was light enough of several of the pages to be written upon.

Nautical Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

As always I like using up scraps that I have on hand. I made tags out of Navy & Ivory Chevron is from Canvas Corp Brands paper. I sewed a scrap of dictionary paper on top that had been sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and stamped with Let your dreams set sail. After punching a hole in the top of the tag I added Waxed Cotton Cord from Canvas Corp Home Basics. Doesn’t it feel like something Nautical?

Nautical Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

My friends are such a big blessing to me. One year a friend got a beautiful daily travel calendar. There are so many beautiful images in this calendar and he was throwing away the pages when the days were done. I asked if I could have those and I’m so glad I saved these from 2006! Tell your friends to save these items for you to use.

Nautical Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

Nautical Travelers Notebook Junk Journal

I’m so glad that I purchased the Creative Stamping Magazine Issue 43 Stamp set
from Barns and Noble. I’m loving the nautical themed stamps that came with the magazine. I used the heart knot rope on the tops of several pages. My MISTI sure comes in handy to get precise stamping every time.

Share Your Story Travelers Notebook Junk journal

This Share your story Travelers Notebook Junk Journal measures 8.25 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide. It has 12 sheets of paper for a total of 48 pages.

Here is a video flip through of Share your story Travelers Notebook Junk Journal and a couple of tips on stamping inside.

It has a variety of items included. Used an image from Calico Collage Natures Glory on top of a 7gypsies printed cardstock for the cover. I love adding a little bit of sewing to the cover.

Just like most of my junk journals the Share your story Travelers Notebook Junk Journal has lots of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists added to the pages.

Share Your Story Travelers Notebook Junk journal

I also used some stamps from Brutus Monroe. The first one I used is Life is Art from the Be Brave set. I really like this stamp set with the beautiful words. One of the other stamps I used is a border stamp from Fancy Borders. When working in a Travelers Notebook it is perfect to add on the pages.

Share Your Story Travelers Notebook Junk journal

Papers used for pages: Coloring book page from a Dollar Tree coloring book. I found that I like the full page images that when these are folded over you can still make out a pattern.

A page from a daily tear-off desk calendar. One of my former coworkers saved these for me and I love the beautiful colorful images.

Part of a large color map. These were also given to me years ago. I love how it gives added color to the journal. Like you saved the map from travels and had to include it in the journal.

Share Your Story Travelers Notebook Junk journal

Wrapping paper was also used. It is the one that is gold with hearts and flowers. Old wrapping paper is a great way to add a little bit of color to a journal.

A variety of scrapbook papers were used. I love the cardstock papers from Canvas Corp Home Basics I used the Orange & Ivory Chevron as I thought it would be cool to write on the page in a whimsical way.

Share Your Story Travelers Notebook Junk journal

Other papers, graft paper, mop up sheet from my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist spray box. And even wallpaper.

There are so many things that can be used in a Junk Journal. Have fun selecting items to make into the journal.
