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.

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.

Here is my video Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial.

The supplies Used for the Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial

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.

Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial

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

Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial

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.

Pin Up Girl Twinchies Tutorial

Still working on the #useitupjuly challenge. Today’s project is a Pin Up Girl Twinchies Tutorial. What are Twinchies? These are two-inch square works of art. These works can be traded as they are or you can use these to embellish projects. Mine are now altered paperclips.

Pin Up Girl Twinchies Tutorial

In this Pin Up Girl Twinchies Tutorial video, you will see the transformation of ugly scrapbook paper into something beautiful.

The supplies used for the Pin Up Girl Twinchies Tutorial

The method I used for the Pin Up Girl Twinchies Tutorial was pasting other papers on top of the ugly scrapbook paper. Using the glue pot and a foam brush I applied glue to the page and then adhered scraps of book pages and hymnal pages.

Dry the page and apply random swipes of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam. The Glimmer Glam adds a touch of color and glitter to the project.

Sewing around the bits of paper adds another detail to the paper.

Pin Up Girl Twinchies Tutorial

Cut the page into two-inch squares and these become the base to decorate.

Pin Up Girl Twinchies Tutorial

Calico Collage Pin Up Girl Domino digital images are 1 x 2 inches and fit perfectly on the two-inch squares. Distress inks are perfect for finishing the edges of the image and giving a vintage look. Adhere the image on three sides to leave room for a pocket on one side.

Pin Up Girl Twinchies Tutorial

Add scraps of lace and trim for a pretty touch. The stamped postcard is the perfect size for the little pocket.

Didn’t these turn out super cute? I hope that this Pin Up Girl Twinchies Tutorial has inspired you to use up those ugly scrapbook papers, just give them a facelift. 😉

Tropical Flip Book Tutorial Using Junk Mail

This Tropical Flip Book Tutorial Using Junk Mail is because of a YouTube followers request. She really asked for me to make a tropical flipbook, I just chose to use junk mail. 😉 The tutorial has these techniques included: Frankenpage, Tuck Spot, Paper Hinge Technique, Pockets, Belly Band, Hidden Pocket. Day 8 of my #useitupjuly challenge.

You will look at your mail differently after seeing how I transformed a mail flyer into a really cool Tropical Flip Book. The method is really easy. Using the Frankenpages concept, attach scraps of papers to a mailer. In my case, this was a large 11 inch tall by about 22 inch wide advertisement.

Tropical Flip Book Tutorial Using Junk Mail

If you don’t have an advertisement that is that large, you can always attach several together. Use the scraps of paper to adhere the pieces together or even washi tape.

Tropical Flip Book Tutorial Using Junk Mail Tropical Flip Book Tutorial Using Junk Mail

Once the scraps have adhered to the base I then added stitching around the pieces. I chose to work on one side first using black thread in the upper and lower threads on my machine. That way there would be decorative stitches on both sides. When I felt one side had all the necessary stitches I the flipped over the piece and added stitches where I thought it would look good.

Choose elements from old projects to decorate the new flip book base. Some of these were digital images from Calico Collage, some were scraps from play sessions. This is a great project to use up those leftovers.

Have fun playing with the junk and make something useful. This Tropical Flip Book would be a great travel item to add memories from a fun Tropical Vacation.

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.

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. 🙂

Scrappy Tropical Note Card Tutorial

Day two of #useitupjuly and I have a Scrappy Tropical Note Card Tutorial to share. My goal is to use up some of this stash I’ve collected and share ideas so you can also use up your scraps.

Scrappy Tropical Note Card Tutorial

Scrappy Tropical Note Card Tutorial Video.

The supplies I used for the Scrappy Tropical Note Card Tutorial

For this Scrappy Tropical Note Card Tutorial, I decided that I wanted to make some note cards for a flip junk journal. When I’m creating a journal I like to make the note cards and other elements before I finish the journal. Doing this helps me have everything I need as I’m working.

Scrappy Tropical Note Card Tutorial

Since I keep the items I create when playing it was a perfect item to use for cards like this. Overstamping on the piece makes an instant background for the look I wanted.

Stickers are something that I don’t usually buy, but if I find a great bargain sometimes these make it home. lol When I was digging around and found the surfboard stickers and the stamps I knew what to create!

Tattered Angels Glam is so fun to use on projects. It gives the project a shiny shimmer that brings a project to another level.

Scrappy Tropical Note Card Tutorial

If you have been following me for very long you may have noticed that I love to add stitching to my projects. I just love the look it adds and makes me feel good about keeping that sewing machine nearby.

What kind of items do you have in your stash that you need to use up? I have so many it is hard to list them all, but hopefully my projects like this Scrappy Tropical Note Card Tutorial will inspire you.

Pin Up Tag Tutorial

It is the first of July, wow this year is flying by! Today I’m sharing a Pin Up Tag Tutorial inspired by the time of year. I know sounds strange, stick with me. So many of us made a resolution in January to use up or stash. This is something I strive to do all the time every year. But I was looking at a bunch of scraps and leftover projects that I thought, why not do a self-challenge for July and try to create something every day from items in my stash. #useitupjuly was my idea to use as a hashtag. lol

Pin Up Tag Tutorial

Here is a video showing the Pin Up Tag Tutorial.

The supplies used for the Pin Up Tag Tutorial

On my desk is a basket that collects scraps from projects. When I complete a video or project I’ll pop the leftover bits into the basket. Then when I need something quick to make I have items to grab. This basket is getting too full! That is why I decided to use it up a little at a time.

Pin Up Tag Tutorial

This Pin Up Tag Tutorial is really easy. Begin by grabbing up those leftover bits. This is a great way to make tags or even bookmarks. These you can use in journals, books or even give as a gift.

Trim papers to fit your idea. I don’t always measure, I just look and see where it needs to be cut. No stress this way. lol

Using a stencil on white paper is so pretty. It instantly turns it into a patterned paper. The shimmer is so beautiful it makes me smile to see it on a project.

Pin Up Tag Tutorial

Many of my projects I use my sewing machine. I just love the little details it adds to a project.

Glitter paint is something that makes items look even more vintage to me. Those old-fashioned cards that would have highlights of glitter always made me happy.

Pin Up Tag Tutorial

Since I began my crafting with sewing I have a large stash of fabric. My friends love to give me scraps as well so the pile is getting big and this was a perfect opportunity to use fabric as ribbons on the tags.

Pin Up Tag Tutorial

There is something about adding a single word to a project that completes the piece. It may not be needed all the time, but on some occasions adding a single word just adds the perfect touch.

These Pin Up Tags/bookmarks will be for sale at the Pin Up Girls Bazaar in Oklahoma City July 22. Come out and see lots of beautiful items for sale.

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.
