Junk Journal from my stash, The best is yet to come.

It’s a Junk Journal from my stash, Titled The best is yet to come, that I’m sharing today. There are a few members of the Paper Crafters United! Facebook group that decided to do a video blog hop. We thought each of us could make a junk journal using items from our stash but we were not allowed to use printed papers, like scrapbook papers nor could we use digital papers in the junk journal.

Junk Journal from my stash

So this Junk Journal from my stash was a perfect challenge for me. As I was able to force myself to use some of these pretty things I’ve collected over the years or last week. LOL

Junk Journal from my stash

When I’m making a journal I look at all of the pages to decide what size it should be with the cover. For this Junk Journal from my stash, I found a page out of an old Harpers Bazar and decided that all of my pages would be this size or smaller.

Once the size was decided I went through the papers I wanted to use and set to cutting to the correct size. Doing this first helps me get my head around the papers I’m using and maybe how I want to decorate.

Using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and stencils I then started coloring the papers. I just love how the Glimmer Mists add color and shimmer to the papers. To me it makes it inviting to write on the paper.

Junk Journal from my stashIn my stash, I have a box of 500 envelopes that I got years ago. These were going in the trash because they couldn’t use them anymore. I’ve kept them as I wasn’t sure how to use these as they didn’t have any sticky on the flaps. Bam a JJ is perfect for these as you want to be able to open the envelope to get to the items inside. Here is what I did. I took two of these envelopes and laid these side by side and used the same stencils and glimmer mists to color. Then I used a pretty washi tape to attach these together to make into a page for the journal.

Using some of the same techniques I’ve used in other junk journals I made some pockets out of old book pages and hand stamped papers. Then I stack the papers in the order I want them to be in the journal.

Junk Journal from my stash

For this Junk Journal from my stash, I wanted to have lots of space to write and that is why I didn’t make a lot of embellishments for the pages. Using some stickers that I’ve had for years on the pages here and there added a small element without a lot of bulk. And as an added bonus I am done with that set of stickers. lol

Junk Journal from my stash

When I’m making a junk journal I like to figure out where all the elements should go before I bind the journal. Sometimes it is easier especially if you want to sew any of the elements.

Junk Journal from my stash

The cover is made out of a large Watercolor pad of paper. It measures 9 inches by 12 inches. This would make my pages 9 x 6. I used a Dictionary page over half of the full cover. Then using a stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists I added color to the cover. Love using my sewing machine so at this point I added a zig zag stitch around the cover. Then started layering elements, a page from a hymnal, vintage greeting card, yellow gingham fabric, cheesecloth and a stamped phrase – the best is yet to come.

Junk Journal from my stash

Here is a video showing the making of the cover for the Junk Journal from my stash.

After the cover was made I used a pamphlet stitch to bind the book. There are 10 sheets of papers (including the envelope page) for a total of 40 pages to work with in this journal. Would make a great monthly journal. I like how easy this binding method is to do. No need to use math if you don’t want to! LOL

Junk Journal from my stash

This challenge was fun and hard. I had to think differently about what I wanted to use and remember that all of these wonderful things have images or patterns that can be used without buying fancy scrapbook paper or digital downloads.

My hope is that this has inspired you to make a goal to create a Junk Journal from my stash project. Pull items from your stash, but no printed or patterned paper like scrapbook paper and no digital images you downloaded and printed. See what you can make, because the best is yet to come.

How to choose items for a Junk Journal

In this post, I’ll share How to choose items for a Junk Journal. Recently I’ve been asked how do I go about selecting items. So I thought I would share a video and talk about what I do!

Let’s get this started. To begin I think about a theme I want to make. I have made junk journals without a particular theme, but for the most part, each has a theme. So what is a theme you love?

Now that you have an idea of a theme, which can be anything. Birds, flowers, prayer, travel, favorite foods, favorite colors and so much more, the list can go on forever, which helps with my word count. LOL

Here is a video I created for those that like to watch. How to choose items for a Junk Journal.

For those that would like to know where I got the digital kits for this post on How to choose items for a Junk Journal, I used Calico Collage kits. EnchantedSummer Paradise and Mermaid Tale were some of the images I showed in the video above.

For me I like to try to stay organized. A box or a basket helps contain all the items. Dollar Tree loves it when I go. You would think that I have enough bins and baskets now. But I keep going back!

So you have picked that theme and you have a box or basket, start adding to it the items you have on hand. Look at things like an old book, magazine, greeting cards, wrapping paper, wallpaper, old letters and junk mail. I got this really cute postcard because it was my birthday and I saved it because it was so cute! It would be great for a birthday junk journal or a cat junk journal.

How to choose items for a Junk Journal

Other things I will collect are stickers, scrapbook paper, rubber stamps and digital journal kits. For today’s post, I was working on a Mermaid Junk Journal and collecting items that would work. The list really is endless. I have also selected, washi tape, die cut images, dies to cut my own images, candy wrappers, dictionary pages, maps, index cards, blank note cards and notepads.

Look at fabric and cheesecloth to make some beautiful textures. How to choose items for a Junk Journal is all personal. Each of us has items we like more than others. If we were put in a store and told to go find items for the theme we are making into a Junk Journal and then came back I bet we would have different things in our shopping carts.

What I really love about Junk Journals is there is no wrong way to make one! Don’t fret about the process, enjoy the process. Take time to enjoy picking out things you may or may not use.

There are a few things that are not listed, like ink pads and glimmer mists, but I’ll share more in the next blog post and video.

CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017

Hello, my friends. It’s that exciting time again where I get to share my CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017 entry. Being a part of this round robin has really helped me to stretch my creativity. What have you done lately to stretch your creativity?

CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017

For this CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017 entry I decided to use a page of Mixed Media Origins Nature by Tattered Angles. This paper is almost like fabric. It has a beautiful texture and it is strong. Adding wet media to this paper is no problem and that is why I chose to use it today.

Here is a video showing how I created the CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017 entry.

Some of the products used today were Mixed Media Origins Nature paper from Tattered Angels. One of my big go to products Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Iridescent Gold, Red Chillies, Crimson. I love how thick the Tattered Angels High Impact Paint is and how it adds that perfect touch, used; White and Black.

Loose or free form water coloring is so beautiful. When using the Mixed Media Origins Papers with Glimmer Mists you can get that beautiful water color effect with very little effort.

CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017

Spray Glimmer Mists into a palette and use a paint brush to add color where ever you want. Use water to dilute and move the color. A heat tool comes in handy to dry each layer of color.

CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017

When I started using the Tim Holtz stencil with a foam brush I found that I wasn’t getting the coverage I wanted. So I switched to a stiff stencil brush. Sometimes you have to switch tools to get the look you want.

CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017

The Vase of Roses image was something I found in my old digital image file folder and loved the boldness of the image. It seemed a perfect accent to the Nature paper with the roses highlighted in reds.

CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017

Every month I get a new journal as do 23 other artists. I hope you will take a look for the #CCBTRAVELINGARTJOURNAL tag to find all of the other CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017 entries.

To see the other journal entries do a search on Social media for this tag: #ccbtravellingartjournal or #ccbtravelingartjournal Also make sure you visit Canvas Corp Brands Blog, there are lots of beautiful things posted to inspire you.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Journaling in Junk Journal

This question comes up a lot how do you go about Journaling in Junk Journal? So today I’m sharing my Journaling in Junk Journal for the Junk Journal July Challenge. I created a journal to remember this month and I’ve finally finished journaling inside it today.

Journaling in Junk Journal

There are a only a few items I used when Journaling in Junk Journal for July. Since the journal was already finished all I had to do was add my journaling. My tools were simple, Jot Glue stick, Aleene’s Tacky Glue, Sharpie Fine point pen – no bleed, Waxed Linen Thread, awl, bookbinders needle, or a Book Binding Kit – Awl, needle: here, washi tape, two sheets of 12 inch x 12 inch cardstock in lavender, paper cutter, scissors, Ranger Blending Tools, and Tim Holtz Distressed ink – Black Soot.

Here is a video showing my Journaling in Junk Journal July journal that I completed.

What I love the most about Junk Journals is there is no wrong way to make them, no wrong way to use them. If it is something you love then make a junk journal so that you can be like me and start Journaling in Junk Journal of your own.

Journaling in Junk Journal

For today’s Journaling in Junk Journal in my Junk Journal July journal I had printed my photos – 4 to a page what ever size I thought would look good. These were printed on standard copy paper with a laser printer. Could use real photos from a photo shop or print with ink jet printer. I would love to get one of those new mini photo printers that can print Instagram style photos.

Trimmed the photos with my paper cutter. I had a close up of the cover so it was a different size than the other photos. It made that easy to pick out of the others when trying to remember which photo went first. lol

Journaling in Junk Journal

Since I had 20 photos I wanted to use Journaling in Junk Journal July journal I made a mini journal. The mini journal was made using two sheets of 12 inch x 12 inch cardstock. These were cut into 4 inch x 12 inch strips then folded in half to make 4 x 6 pages for a mini journal.

Using the Tim Holtz Distressed ink – Black Soot I added color to all of the pages. I fold the papers both directions so that I can get both sides and down in the crease of the book.

Journaling in Junk Journal

Stack the pages of this mini journal together and center. I make a template to mark my hole placement for a Pamphlet Stitched journal. Mine is the height of the journal by 2 inches wide. So, in this case, it is 4 inches tall by 2 inches wide. Score from top to bottom in the center. Fold the paper in half to mark score. Then place a dot in the center and dots 3/4 an inch from each end.

Use an awl to pierce dots on the template. Place the template in the center of your new journal making sure to line up all the pages. I use giant paper clips to hold my pages while I’m punching and sewing the pages for Journaling in Junk Journal.

Take the awl and pierce through all the pages. Remove the template and pick up your thread to bind this journal. I use waxed linen thread that is three times the length of my journal height in this case about 12 inches. Thread a book binders needle (can use large yarn needles but the eye is wider and will make a larger hole in the paper. The yarn needles are sometimes not as strong too.

Starting in the center of the holes on the inside of the journal place your needle and push to the outside of the journal. Pull the needle up and into the top hole from the outside going inside the journal. Make sure to hang on to the tail on the inside or it will pull through. We need that to tie it off in a moment.

Now that you are inside the journal take your needle and go through the center hole. I hold the tail of the thread so it doesn’t pull through. The needle is now on the outside in the center so go to the bottom hole from the outside to the inside.

Time to tie off this journal. Pull your needle under the top thread on the inside. Gently pull the threads in opposite direction to make sure all are tight. Then tie two square knots. Here is where you can snip it close or leave a tail to add a punched shape.

Journaling in Junk Journal

Congrats you just made a tiny journal. Wasn’t that easy? Easy is good when Journaling in Junk Journals.

Then I proceeded to journal about the Flowers and Lace Junk Journal. Information about the size of the journal, how many pages, the price it was sold for and who purchased the journal. These are happy memories for me to remember later.

Journaling in Junk Journals isn’t hard. And there are no wrong ways to do so. Have fun with your journals. This one I kept to photos and writing. The next might be mixed media – paints, papers, fabric and more. And the one after might be all about a trip and the memorabilia that is collected on the way.

Have fun when you are Journaling in Junk Journals.

Magnificent Junk Journal Page

Welcome to my blog. Today I’m sharing how to make a Magnificent Junk Journal Page. Using stamps from Brutus Monroe, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and various scraps of paper I share how to make a Magnificent Junk Journal page.

Magnificent Junk Journal Page

What are your favorite themes to use in a Junk Journal? Mine varies depending on my mood. Some are chosen because of the digital kit or a favorite stamp set that I want to use.

The inspiration for making this Magnificent Junk Journal Page was from Liz Costin. Recently I was the swap coordinator for a page swap for Friendly Junk Journal People and I had the pleasure of looking at all of the pages before swapping. I loved what Liz did with her pages so I asked if I could make a tutorial with her pages. She agreed so here I am sharing. 😉

Here is a video showing how to make a Magnificent junk journal page.

Since we are doing page swaps in our group I decided to follow the size requirement that we set in the group for the pages. My page is 8 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide.

When I’m working in a journal it needs to have places to write. Isn’t that what most journals are about? Even though I may not like my handwriting I want to have plenty of room to record memories or notes. That is why this Magnificent Junk Journal Page has pockets to hold journal paper.

Every time I make a junk journal page I feel good about using the things I have in my stash. You can make trash into treasure with a little work.

For those that like a video here is a video. How to make a Halloween Junk Journal Page.

This Halloween Junk Journal Page was made for a page swap inside the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group. Every month there is a new theme and we are swapping one page with a partner.  The idea was that it would be easier to make one page to swap with another. But if more pages were wanted, just ask to be on the list for however many pages you want to create and swap.

Halloween Junk Journal Page

The swap requirements:
1. Make 1 journal page when open measure 10.5 inches wide by 8 inches tall. The folded page will be 5.25 inches wide by 8 inches tall.
2. The page should include a tuck spot
3. At least one journal card should be included
4. Sign each page so that the new owner will know you created the page. You can sign up for specific months or take the 12 month page challenge. Please note that you must sign up each month if you want to be a part of the event.

Halloween Junk Journal Page

Using the swap requirements I selected items from my stash to create the Halloween Junk Journal Page. What I found really cool was using the things that others would throw out. Like the manilla envelope from a swap, I received in the mail or the makeup booklet.

All Hallows Eve a Halloween Junk Journal

Today I’m sharing a new Junk Journal. It is an All Hallows Eve a Halloween Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Digital images, some images from my friend Janice, Stamps, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and more.

Halloween Junk Journal

Since we are having a Halloween contest in the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group I thought I should make a Halloween Junk Journal. Norella with Calico Collage provided a great freebie for the contest and has also agreed to give the winner a copy of the All Hallows Eve Digital junk journal kit.

Halloween Junk Journal

So I thought I should make a Halloween Junk Journal with those images so that everyone can see how cool these images are to use. Using these images makes a junk journal come together so easily.

Halloween Junk Journal Halloween Junk Journal

For this Halloween Junk Journal, I started collecting things I already had in my stash. some of those items were stickers. When out shopping I buy stickers and then I get home and forget to use them. My plan this year has been to use up the items I have and when I found the stickers I decided I will use as many as I like.

Halloween Junk Journal Halloween Junk Journal

This journal also helped me use my Cricut. I did a search of all the Halloween images that I own and picked a few to cut. I didn’t use all of these images, but I had fun with the stack of things I collected. What didn’t get used in the Halloween Junk Journal will go in some RAK packages in the next few weeks. That way I get rid of this stash!

Halloween Junk Journal Halloween Junk Journal Halloween Junk Journal

My brother gave me a box of papers and photos he picked up at an auction a few weeks ago. It is time for me to use some of those items. Digging around in the box I found some 5 x 7 black and white photos. These became some items to add into pockets.

Halloween Junk Journal

In this video, I show how to make the cover for the Halloween Junk Journal and how to sew the pages inside. At the end of the video is a flip through of the junk journal.

Making this Halloween Junk Journal was fun. It was cool to try a few new things, like stencils and the Cricut images I cut. Many people love Halloween and consider it their favorite holiday. What is your favorite holiday?

Halloween Journal Jewelry Charms

Love making journal jewelry so today I’m sharing How to make Halloween Journal Jewelry Charms for the Halloween Junk Journal I’m working on at the moment. It’s fun to see what I can add to a Junk Journal that fits the theme.

Halloween Journal Jewelry Charms

Items used for the Halloween Journal Jewelry Charms.

Needle Nose or round nose Pliers
The chain can be any color, you just want the rings big enough to attach jump rings through.
Charms and items to add to chains
Jump rings – I found a kit on Amazon that has a ton of different sizes.
Clasp
Large closed ring to hang chains

My collection of charms and components don’t include a lot of Halloween items. So I thought I would make due with what I have. Look at charms to see if there is some that could be used. While looking for charms I found wings and spiders that I thought were cool. I also found a few keys. Like the large keys I used? I have more of the large keys if anyone is interested in purchasing those in my shop.

Two Large Keys with shipping inside the US is $10.00.

Here is a video on how to make Halloween Journal Jewelry Charms.

In the video above, I show a completed beaded element. If you would like to see a video on how to make that element watch the following video, How to make Journal Charms.

Making these Halloween Journal Jewelry Charms is a lot of fun. Picking out items that go well together and make that tinkling sound when they are hanging on a journal makes me so happy.

Remember that it is okay to mix the metal colors in jewelry as it is a neutral color. So when you pick out your elements pick a variety of color and size as that adds interest.

Halloween Journal Jewelry Charms

Think outside the box when looking for journal charms too. That lonely earring can be used, that broken neckless can now have a new purpose.

One of my favorite things is making the beaded elements out of what ever beads I want that fits my mood.

The key is to have fun!
