Winner Announcement and Share of Old Journals

Thanks to the following vendors for sharing products with me for this giveaway. Crafters Companion for the Gemini Junior and dies. Surebonder for the glue gun and glue. And Holster Brands for one of their clever holsters. Thank you for helping to make this giveaway possible.

Here is the video of the Winner Announcement and Share of Old Journals.

I decided to share a few of my old journals and alter books because people keep asking when I first started making journals. Back in the 1990’s, I made a lot of different styles of journals. Most were altered books. There wasn’t an outlet in the area for sharing these altered books so I went back to making more greeting cards than journals. It was a little over a year ago that I picked journal making back up.

The winners of the giveaway:

  • Johanne Lancombe – Flowers made by me
  • Susan Tracy – Flowers Made by me
  • Linda Davis – Holster
  • Erica Nelson – Glue Gun and glue
  • Brandy Wollet – Gemini Junior and dies

Congratulations to each of the winners. Please contact me with your mailing address so I can send the prizes. 🙂 Thank you so very much for watching and entering the giveaway. My hope is you will enjoy the prizes shared in the Winner Announcement and Share of Old Journals.

Make sure to check out the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group. Of course, you are welcome to join the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group. The group is growing daily and we are a friendly group willing to help each other and encourage each other.

Felt Flower Tutorial and Gemini Jr Giveaway

Today I have a Felt Flower Tutorial and Gemini Jr Giveaway to share with you. Back in January while attending Creativation 2018 I got to meet some wonderful people at the Crafters Companion booth. I got to test drive the Gemini and make a few projects and then later they gave me a Gemini Jr for my 5000 Subscriber giveaway on Youtube.

Here is the Felt Flower Tutorial video. Share this video using the tag #lindaisraelgiveaway, then to be entered to win, post on the video you have shared it on your social media.

Items used in the Felt Flower Tutorial.

The method of making these flowers is pretty easy for this Felt Flower Tutorial, I first used the Gemini to cut the felt. It cuts beautifully and is easy to pull apart the negative from the positive.

Using a pair of tweezers I then start to roll up the flower. Adding a drop of glue and then rolling more.

Continue rolling the flower adding glue until you get to the big round part. Make sure you are keeping the roll even so you will have a pretty flower. When you get to the end, apply hot glue to the roll and close the flap on the bottom.

The flower is done, or you can go further by spraying with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I used Party Pink Tattered Angels lightly over the flower and then dried with my heat tool. The flower on the left has been sprayed the flower on the right is the original color.

This flower needed a flat back pearl so I used the Embellie Gellie to hold the pearl and the Surebonder glue gun to place the glue. The Embellie Gellie with its stick allows perfect placement of the pearl.

Isn’t this pink flower super cute? It was made using a dryer sheet and Party Pink Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Then added a flat back pearl to the center. What a great way to upcycle those dryer sheets right?

The hot glue gun by Surebonder is a great tool. This is a full size glue gun with dual temp. I like the auto shut off. No worries about did I leave the hot glue gun on?

These Holsters are really cool. A great way to have a holder for a tool and have it out of the way, hanging off your table or sink.

Valentine Junk Journal Page

Since Valentines is just around the corner and I joined the Valentine Junk Journal Page swap inside the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group I thought I should get one made. It was easy to turn this into a video tutorial showing how to transform junk mail into a journal page, using craft paint and images from Calico Collage. I even used a body butter box for a couple of tags.

It is possible to alter a piece of junk mail for a junk journal. Lots of people say that it is hard to make something pretty. But if you get some acrylic craft paint you can do beautiful things.

Using an old credit card or gift card is a great way to spread paint onto paper. It goes on in thin layers that dry fast. Once all the layers are dry it is easy to write on top of the paint.

While for this project I used digital images it is possible to find pretty images in things you may already have. Take a look at that empty tissue box, chances are there is a pretty pattern that can be used. Flip through old magazines and look for flowers and other images you can use. Those old greeting cards you saved for years are also great items to use for something pretty.

Really the key is to enjoy the process and have fun looking for items you can use. Like the empty Victoria’s Secret Body Butter Box. The box is a pretty shade of pink and had the word Love so I had to use it as a journal tag.

I’m looking forward to swapping with the assigned partner. It is so much fun to see what others make. Getting a junk journal page in a swap helps me learn new things or come up with new ideas.
