The goal is to use up all the bits and pieces for the Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial that I can. Thought that sharing how to make individual junk journal pages might inspire each of you to use up your stash.

When I have leftover bits I try to sort by color. Using 12 x 12 clear scrapbook pockets to keep everything in order and easy to see. Before I cut a large sheet of paper for a project I look in the pockets to see if there is something I can use. Don’t want to create more scraps.

Images from Magazines and Calendars are a great source to add color to junk journals. Trim out of the magazine or calendar and use any way you like. If there is writing on the back side of the image you want, then add another piece of paper. Notebook paper is a great back and it gives you lines to write upon.

White and Ivory lace is great to have in the stash. The lace can be sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to match a project. It cuts down on having too many colors of lace that you may not use all of the time. But white or ivory lace is easy to work into a project as it can be changed.

Think outside the box when making journal pages. It’s okay to splice two pieces together to get the size you need. Remember there is no wrong way to make a junk journal page.

7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book

Day 21 of #useitupjuly, today sharing 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book times two! It was so fun making the Embellishment books a week ago that I decided I would make two more in a different theme. Using lots of items from my stash and several from 7Gypsies I share two books that were made.

This is the Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial I made on July 12. It features using the Frankenpages technique to create the cover and pages. This video also shows how the cover book was constructed and all the goodies inside the first two I made.

The 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book is a great way to use up scraps and items that you have had for a while, or that you have duplicates of in your stash.

When these books were made I was going through my stash and found where I had cut items out of the 7Gpysies booklets and out of sheets of images. Being able to find a use for the leftover pieces helps me a lot!

As an artist and crafter, I tend to find reasons to keep things that might be trash to others. The postcards used for the pages is one of those items. But having those pieces to use as a base helped these 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Books come together.

Once I got started it was hard to stop with just one book! lol I have supplies to make dozens of these little books. Creating with a theme helped me focus on the creation of the first 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book. When it was done I realized that I had enough to make a second with similar items.

Take a look at the stash you have. Find those items that you love and put them to use. We spend so much time shopping and collecting that we forget to create! My hope is that you are inspired to create after seeing one of my videos.

Cluster Embellishment Tutorial

Day 20 of #useitupjuly, today it is a Cluster Embellishment Tutorial. Using some leftover items and images from Calico Collage I share how to make three different Cluster Embellishments.

Supplies used for the Cluster Embellishment Tutorial

When getting prepared for the Cluster Embellishment Tutorial I collected the items I knew I wanted to use. First I imported the Calico Collage images into the Silhouette software. Adjusted the size and created cut lines. Printed the images and then cut with the Silhouette Cameo 3. While I was cutting I also cut squares and circles for the mats on my Cricut. Handy to have two different machines so I could get done fast. lol

Using papers from my stash, some I’ve had for years, I then proceeded to use the Flourish Square paper punch and create shapes for bases.

The tuck spot or journal card was made using a scrap of Kraft Cardstock. Distress Ink, frayed burlap was applied to the edges, then overstamped with a script rubber stamp for a background.

Cluster Embellishment Tutorial

Lace was sewn down the side and then the elements I wanted to use were arranged on top. Adding stitches with a sewing machine gives each the handmade look and a bit of charm.

Little words were added to tell a story. In the past, I wouldn’t put words as I didn’t have any and then I realized I could make my own!

Have fun using your stash and making little cluster embellishments. Hope you enjoyed the Cluster Embellishment Tutorial today!

Paper Pocket Tutorial

Day 19 of #useitupjuly and I’m sharing a Paper Pocket Tutorial. These pockets are perfect for junk journals. One pocket I really like because it holds lots of goodies that can be placed anywhere in a journal and taken out to use the bits.

Paper Pocket Tutorial

Supplies used for the Paper Pocket Tutorial

I’m working on my goal of using it up in July by going through my stash and finding ways to use items.  Each project reduces my stash a little at a time.

The plan for the Paper Pocket Tutorial today was to use brown paper sacks, book pages, transparency and a sewing machine to make pockets.

The size of the pocket is determined by the journal. I measure the page and subtract about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch. That is the width of the pocket. The height is usually no more than 4.5 inches. It depends on how large the journal pages are and what will go inside.

The inspiration for the first pocket: one day while playing around with paper, I decided why couldn’t I create a multi-pocket out of one sheet of paper. That is when the three pocket came about. Being able to see bits at different levels in the pockets gives just a little bit of charm to a junk journal. A removable pocket is so much fun!

Paper Pocket Tutorial

The second pocket I made used transparency film that I purchased for a different project but the transparency film didn’t work for that other project. That is when I thought, hey it can be a pocket in a junk journal. And that is how I decided to use transparency film over a stamped piece of kraft paper sack.

Paper Pocket Tutorial

Take a look at those supplies you have and use them. Sure it is fun to go shopping, but after a while, you can have way too many supplies and it can overwhelm you. Don’t be overwhelmed with too many supplies, use it up!

Experiment with your supplies to find new things. If trying something for the first time, use old book pages or scrap paper to make the prototype. Sometimes I like how the prototype turned out with scraps! lol

Have fun creating and Use It Up!

Use Your Wings Junk Notecard Tutorial

This month is halfway over! Day 17 of #useitupjuly sharing, Use Your Wings Junk Notecard Tutorial. Using the junk on my desk and a stamp I create a little notecard.

Use Your Wings Junk Notecard Tutorial

The video for Use Your Wings Junk Notecard Tutorial.

Supplies used for the Use Your Wings Junk Notecard Tutorial

The process of making this Use Your Wings Junk Notecard Tutorial begins with applying Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to a page out of a book. I love using the stencils I made for this, as I know that each one is unique and no two will be identical.

Adding stamping with white paint on the book page makes the heart on the top pop out on this card.

Being able to attach the transparency using a sewing machine really makes me happy. I love how the stitches look.

The packaging from 7Gypsies really makes me happy. I love that they use pretty prints so that we can use the packaging in our projects too. It was perfect for a bookmark tag.

Use Your Wings Junk Notecard Tutorial

One of my best investments has been the Silhouette Cameo 3. This machine has allowed me to create so much for junk journals. Like the words and word phrases. This time I created the words with white text and a black box. Printed on cardstock and then used the Silhouette Cameo 3 to cut the words. Being able to create any phrase at any time makes me so happy!

What kind of scraps do you have leftover? How do you use the scraps? Love to hear, feel free to tag me on social media and use #useitupjuly as the tag. 🙂

Pamphlet Stitch Binding Tutorial

Day of 13 #useitupjuly, decided to share a Pamphlet Stitch Binding Tutorial and then share the contents of the Dragonfly Memories Junk Journal. The Pamphlet Stitch Binding is one of the easiest for making journals. Once you have made a few journals it will be one of your favorite ways to bind a journal.

Pamphlet Stitch Binding Tutorial13

Video showing the Pamphlet Stitch Binding Tutorial.

Supplies used for the Pamphlet Stitch Binding Tutorial and Dragonfly Memories Junk Journal.

The Pamphlet Stitch Binding Tutorial should help you bind most journals. Today only one signature is used and only three holes are made to attach the pages to the cover.

Once the cover and the pages have been finished, stack the pages making sure these are even. Hold the pages together with giant paperclips or clips. The key is to keep the pages lined up and not let these move.

Make a hole punching template. Measure the height of the book, cut a piece of cardstock at that height and about 2 inches wide. Fold the paper in half both from top to bottom and lengthwise. Mark the center point. Using the fold mark that is the length o the journal mark a dot 1.5 inches from each end. These are the three places to punch holes.

Lay the template in the spine of the journal pages and cover. Punch the three holes. Use waxed linen thread and a bookbinders needle to bind the pages.

Start in the inside center hole, pull needle to the outside, making sure to secure the tail and not pull it through to the front. Now place the needle in the top hole from the outside of the journal and go to the inside. Pull the center tail up towards the top of the journal and use the same hole in the center again to go to the outside. Then pass the needle through the bottom hole on the outside. With the needle on the inside go under the top thread. Pull the tail and the remaining thread in opposite directions. Making sure that the thread on the inside and outside are tight. Tie a square knot.

Once you have bound a couple of journals using this method, you will find it is super easy.

Making the Dragonfly Memories Junk Journal really helped me use up my stash! This journal measures 5.5 x 8.5 inches and has 11 sheets of paper folded in half to make 44 pages.

Hopefully this Pamphlet Stitch Binding Tutorial will inspire you to get into your stash and use it up! It is a lot of fun to shop for supplies, but now it’s time to use them in projects. 🙂

Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial

Day 12 of #useitupjuly and I’m sharing an Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial. One of my followers Cara Brandon shared her project for the use it up July and it was an Embellishment book.  Cara got her idea from CraftingwithLiller. I really liked what Cara shared and took a look at what Liller created and decided I would make my own version and make it geared towards Junk Journals.

The embellishment book measures 5 inches wide by 6 inches tall with a one-inch spine and has four pages inside. There are pockets on each page and on the inside of the front and back cover. Lots of embellishments to use in this little junk book.

Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial

Cut the watercolor paper down to 6 x 11 inches. Score at the five-inch mark, and again at the six-inch mark. Fold on score lines and this will be the foundation of the cover.

Trim giant postcard down to 5.75 x 10 inches. Score at the 4.75-inch mark and again at 5.25 inches fold on score lines.

Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial

Apply scraps of paper using my version of Frankenpages. Basically, adhere random scraps on the front cover and the over the whole postcard. I like to use rectangular shapes and rotate the text when applying the pieces.

Sew around the paper borders on both the cover and the page. Attach the cover image with the sewing machine.

Adhere the spine of the pages in the center of the cover, allow to dry then stitch with a sewing machine. This ensures that it won’t fall apart.

Attach pockets to each page to hold the embellishments. The embellishments can be anything that you like. Get creative on adding items inside little paper bags, attaching things to little cards. Making each piece something useable.

Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial

Use the Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial to help you use up those leftover pieces and make a great gift or swap item. These little books would be great to hold different themes of embellishments that you can grab when you are creating.

Once all the embellishments have been used the book can be used as a journal, by adding journal cards. Or cut the book apart and use each cover and page as an added element in another project. Remember with Junk Journals there are no rules. Have fun using up your stash for this project.

It was so much fun creating the Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial that I ended up making two Embellishment Junk Books, these are listed in my shop.

Tropical Tag Booklet Tutorial

One of my followers on YouTube requested a special project. This is part one of that project, Tropical Tag Booklet Tutorial. In this tutorial, I’m sharing how to take leftover bits and pieces and make a tag booklet that will be used in a junk journal flip book.

Supplies Used for the Tropical Tag Booklet Tutorial

After digging around in my stash I found some leftover pieces from previous projects that I thought would work to make this Tropical Tag Booklet Tutorial.

Tropical Tag Booklet Tutorial

The Cardstock had scuff marks on it, but I knew that these would be covered up and thought it was the perfect color for a Tropical Tag Booklet. I just love this shade of teal blue.

Tropical Tag Booklet Tutorial

When I’m making projects I try to use as much of the pieces as possible, but sometimes there are bits that don’t get used in a project. I sort mine by color and/or theme. It was easy to pull items for this project because I made a couple of Mermaid Journals and put all the bits in one ziplock bag. It makes it so easy to use items when the items are stored together.

Tropical Tag Booklet Tutorial

Play around with the bits to create new elements. Like the Mixed Media Gel Press paper, I turned into a pocket. Sometimes paper just needs to be folded and altered a little and it becomes a perfect element.

Tropical Tag Booklet Tutorial

Sewing on paper gives a pretty detail that wouldn’t be there otherwise. I love the little strings that are left as it gives it a truly handmade look.

Tropical Tag Booklet Tutorial

Stickers are another great item to use in projects like this one. Sometimes I forget to use the stickers, but I made sure to find spots for them in this project and I love how the surfboards look.

Tropical Tag Booklet Tutorial

Have fun making items out of your stash. Hope you liked this Tropical Tag Booklet Tutorial as part of the #useitupjuly challenge that I’m doing. Share what you are making using the tag on your social media. I would love to see what you make.

Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper

Today I’m sharing a Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper. My neighbor gave me three wallpaper sample books and I decided that as part of my #useitupjuly challenge I would use some of the wallpaper for a junk journal cover.

Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper

When I make a junk journal, I begin with the pages. Once all the pages are made I use the measurement of the width, height and then dept of the stack of pages to determine the cover size. For example, I use the largest pages in the journal which are the digital images that measured 5.25 x 8. when folded in half. The stack of pages (8 sheets folded in half makes 32 pages, times three signatures for a total of 96 pages.) then measured 1.75 inches tall.

Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper

Once I know this measurement I decide how much I want the embellished pages to stick out from the cover, in this case, I decided that I wanted to see the lace and only made the cover .25 of an inch wider. The height of the book I decided to give an additional .50 of an inch. Then the spine I decided to add .25 of an inch. That makes the cover piece 5.5 x 8.5 inches- cut two. The spine is 2 x 8.5 inches – Cut one.

Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper

Then when I line of these three pieces I can measure how much I need to cover the chipboard. In my case, the chipboard measured 13 inches by 8.5 inches. I added 1.75 to both the height and the width and that was enough to cover the chipboard.

Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper

If you have never made a cover before, grab some scraps and practice. Get the hang of how things go together and you can make covers very easily! Just take your time, I know you can make these because I was able to make them. 🙂

Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper

Create the inside pieces for the cover by using cardstock or heavy paper. I usually cut cardstock slightly shorter on the width and the height of the chipboard pieces. The piece for the inside spine I cut about 4 inches wide if I have a 2-inch wide spine. This adds strength to the spine and when the side panels are attached it makes a strong book cover.

Attach the pages to the cover. I use the Pamphlet Stitch as that is sturdy and works for me.

Hopefully, this Junk Journal Cover Tutorial Using Wallpaper was helpful. I know you can make a cover too, it is easier than you think. Just don’t over think the process and make a sample if you have never made one so you can get the idea of how it goes together. 🙂

Domino Necklace Tutorial

Today I’m sharing a Domino Necklace Tutorial. In July I’ll be attending a Pin Up Girl Bazaar in Oklahoma City and I was asked to bring as many Pin Up Girl related items as I could. My thoughts were that Domino Necklaces would be a perfect item to bring.

Supplies used for the Domino Necklace Tutorial.

The process for this Domino Necklace Tutorial.

Domino Necklace Tutorial

Begin by printing the Pin Up Girl images. My images were printed on standard copy paper using a laser jet printer. Trim the images from the sheet.

Use Distress Ink – Black Soot around the edges of the images.

Apply a small amount of Diamond Glaze to the wooden domino and smooth out using a paintbrush, quickly place the printed image on top. Trim if necessary.

Once the Diamond Glaze has dried apply Distress Ink – Black Soot around the edges to blend the image into the domino.

Squeeze out Diamond Glaze on top of the image carefully to avoid bubbles. (Do not shake Diamond Glaze prior to use it will cause bubbles). Use a paintbrush to smooth out the Diamond Glaze. This product is self-leveling, once you have enough on the project. Place a small flat back rhinestone in the Diamond Glaze. Sprinkle a small amount of glitter on top then set aside for the piece to dry.

Domino Necklace Tutorial

Once the first layer of Diamond Glaze has dried completely (could be 30 minutes to overnight depending on where you live and the humidity) apply another coat of Diamond Glaze and allow to dry.

Attach a pendant bail to the back of the domino using Omni Stick Glue. Allow the piece to dry.

Cut a piece of cord or use a chain to complete the necklace.

Domino Necklace Tutorial

Did you think this was an easy Domino Necklace Tutorial? Once you get started it is hard to stop! I bought all the wooden dominos that my local Tuesday Morning had in stock and went back and purchased more! My hope is that you have fun making your own.
