Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal

I’m finally home for a little while from doing a couple of trips and two workshops one in Jan and the other in Feb. I decided to make an Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal, well actually three from the leftover supplies from my last workshop in Baton Rouge LA. I had a great time with the ladies that attended.

It was a great workshop too as all three ladies hadn’t done the style of a journal we made. Two had never made a junk journal at all. So it was a lot of fun to show them how to put it together and all three went home with a completed journal.

Since Norella the owner and designer of Calico Collage were attending I asked her what her favorite kit would be to make. She said she liked the Dragonfly Delight Kit. So that is what I prepared for the workshop. By printing, cutting, adding embellishments and creating kits.

When I have a workshop I try to have a couple extra kits just in case someone comes that we didn’t expect. Or if I want to make part of the journal in the workshop. This time I had enough for three journals.

Here is a flip through video of the Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal. I also show the covers other two, but not a flip through of all three. If interested in purchasing one check out my shop.

Since I stay super busy I decided I would make all three pretty much the same as the workshop but I would make it a soft cover. Making a three signature 15 and up page journal takes a lot more time to construct than a single signature with a soft or cardstock cover.

The purple cardstock I used for the cover was given to me. A friends mother moved out of her home and took all that would fit in her two bedroom apartment. When I got to the house there was still at least a full room of supplies that were going in a dumpster. So I took what I thought I could use. This was paper left over from making wedding invitations I think.

If you didn’t already know I love using Tulip Dimensional Glitter Fabric paint. This paint leaves beautiful sparkle on projects. I also like cost, being under $5.00. It does take a little bit longer to dry, but it is so worth waiting.

For a few months now I have been using the domino images as embellishments. I really like the Dragonfly Delight Domino images. These have a lot of color and beautiful images. These just so happened to fit a punch I picked up and I was also able to create a cut file in my Silhouette Cameo 3 to mat the dominos.

I’ve also been using some of the one-inch circles and used the Dragonfly Delight 1 inch circles in this Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal.

Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal

This time I wanted to have lots of color in the Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal. I didn’t want to stay with just teal or pink. But instead, I wanted to use as many colors as I could.

Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal

Glitter cardstock was found to match the colors of the Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal. The glitter makes me smile when I see it in the elements. First I used my Cricut Explore Air to cut little dragonfly boarders. Then with what was left I used a paper punch and made dragonflies. Then I used a Tim Holtz heart paper punch to get as many as possible out of what was left. LOL I really did use it all.

Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal

Making journals like this Inspire Dragonfly Junk Journal makes me so happy. I’m getting to play with so many wonderful products and tools and create something beautiful. This is my passion and I’m so glad that I finally found the one that makes me the happiest.

Jane Austen Junk Journals

One of my local people requested that I make some smaller size and priced junk journals. I decided to make several Jane Austen Junk Journals for her shop and two others. Using the Jane Austen digital journal kit from Calico Collage and ATC cards, made it easy to put these journals together quickly. Do you have favorite Jane Austen quotes? I added a couple that I like inside each journal.

Jane Austen Junk Journals

Flip through video of the Jane Austen Junk Journals I made.

The journals measure 5 x 7 and have 40 pages in each one. The cover is cardstock with the Calico Collage Jane Austen image sewn on top. There is gold organza ribbon tying each one shut and this can be removed.

Selecting items from my stash and pairing with the digital journal kit from Calico Collage is what makes these journals so pretty. I ended up making over a dozen of these journals!

My process of making a lot of journals at one time is to go through the paper stash I have and see how many of the same type of papers I can find. Then I start cutting, folding, sewing and creating pages. I find that if I create one design for a page and then make duplicates it goes much faster than creating each journal then moving on to the next.

There are four of the Jane Austen Junk Journals in my shop. If you are looking for something special, feel free to contact me about special orders.

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.

Valentine Junk Journal Page

Video Tutorial for the Valentine Junk Journal Page.

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.

Valentine Junk Journal Page

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.

Valentine Junk Journal Page

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.

Valentine Junk Journal Page

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.

Valentine Junk Journal Page

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.

Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal

Hello friends. today I’m sharing a custom junk journal I made for one of my fans. Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal uses lots of purples. The digital images – Among the Stars from Calico Collage were used in this junk journal. But I altered these with a scan of a paper I created to give the pages a darker purple and to tone down the pinks. I love how it turned out!

Purple Among the Stars Junk JournalPurple Among the Stars Junk Journal

Here is a flip through video showing the Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal.

When I saw the purple fabric that was used for the cover I just knew I found the perfect piece. Since she said she loved purple, black and stars it was easy to pull items from my stash and get to work.

Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal

I even made three pages out of canvas from Canvas Corp Brands. These pages were sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Fully Purple using a stencil I made on my Cricut Explore Air. Then I added a fabric and lace pocket and more fabric and beaded trim to finish out the page. It is so pretty.

Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal

It was fun to do a little mixed media inside this Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal. Used some old street maps for Oklahoma City and covered those with purple paints. I love being able to alter the color of paper.

Using my Cricut Explore Air I made two different star stencils. One was what I call a waterfall of stars the other is an all over star pattern. Fully Purple Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist was the main one I used for this Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal.

Take a look at those supplies you have, it could be that spraying with something like Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists will take something blah to wow. In this journal, I was able to alter the color of paper, canvas, and even eyelash yarn.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Getting ready for Creativation 2018 in Pheonix AZ, are you? I was asked to make a few junk journals for the Canvas Corp Brands booth that includes 7gpysies and Tattered Angels. I came up with a 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal that I’m in love with and don’t want to let go of for the show. lol I do hope to get it back.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Supplies used in the 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

When I got this paper collection in front of me I decided I really wanted to use as much as possible and not add other products from other companies if I could help it. I believe that I have achieved this goal.

Here is a flip through video of this 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal.

I began by cutting the papers 8 inches tall by 12 inches wide. Saving one of the papers for the cover and the others to become pages.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Next, I selected three pieces of burlap to make pages and used the 4-inch pieces that were cut off of the cardstock papers to make pockets on the burlap.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Sewing canvas, paper, fabric, and burlap was a lot of fun. I love the look it gives this journal. One of my friends said it looked tattered, old and junky. Well, that was my goal! lol

Trying new things in each project helps me grow as an artist. Today it was making a page out of burlap. What new thing have you tried lately in your creative play?

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

Another custom order to share with you today. It is a Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal made for Carrie, one of the members of the Friendly Junk Journal People. She asked me to make a custom Planner Junk Journal when she saw my Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

Once Carrie gave me a list of themes she liked I knew what I wanted to do. Make a Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal. These seemed to go together – flying things and birds could eat dragonflies. lol

The following Digital Journal kits from Calico Collage were used. Song Bird and Dragonfly Delight. I created homemade stencils to use with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Lots of stamps from my stash were used as well.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

Flip through video of the Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal.

One of my friends gave me a 2017 Happy Planner in August. She picked up this planner on clearance and didn’t realize that it only had one month left before it was out of date. Knowing that I make Junk Journals she gave the planner to me to use.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

These pages were great foundations to add other elements and I did so by adding notebook paper to one side and painted paper to the other. This created four pockets on the page to use.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

One day I picked up a stamp set with months and numbers and I knew it would be perfect for a Tab paper punch I have had for years and I was right! The stamps are the perfect size to fit on the tabs so I created two sets one for the pages the other for the Monthly Calendar Journal cards.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

For the cover of this Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal, I used fabric I picked up that I thought would be perfect for Carrie. There are lots of positive phrases and beautiful images all over the fabric. It matched perfectly to the Song Bird and Dragonfly Delight digital images.

Making a custom Junk Journal is fun and a challenge. Getting the themes and colors that a customer wants can sometimes be a challenge but so far I’ve been very lucky that the custom orders so far have been super fun to make.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Happy New Year everyone. Today I’m sharing a Happy New Year Junk Journal Page Tutorial. This Junk Journal Page is for the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group for a swap.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

The idea is that we all trade pages and then we can use these in our junk journals. The size of the pages are 8 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide is folded in half to make an 8 x 5.25 inch.

Supplies used in making the Happy New Year Junk Journal Page.

Video Tutorial for the Happy New Year Junk Journal Page.

This Happy New Year Junk Journal Page is super easy to create. Using a 12 x 12 sheet of scrapbook paper that has a light color or print that goes with your theme is helpful.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Using the Fiskars paper trimmer and a stylis score at the 8-inch mark down one side. Rotate the paper and score at 10.5 inches. Fold up the 4 inches at the bottom. Next, fold over the 1.5-inch flap to the smooth side of the paper. On the flap turn the corner of the lower flap down to give a finished edge. Fold the page in half with the 4-inch pocket at the bottom and now on the front of the page.

Now that the page has been folded you can now see where to decorate with stamps and the stencil. Once the page has been stamped and sprayed let it dry for a moment and then added lace to the flap and the pocket. I use a glue stick to hold the lace in place and then sew the lace on my sewing machine.

Adhere the flap and pocket to the page with the Best Glue Ever and set aside.

Assemble the words and numbers, add the rhinestones with the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Jellie. Adding flatback rhinestones to the project was so easy using ScraPerfects, Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Attach the words and 2018 to the page with the Best Glue Ever. Then add the journal cards and tuck spot.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Making one of these junk journal pages is so much easier than trying to plan a whole journal at one time. I find that if I think about one page (it actually creates four pages when added to a journal) it is much easier for me.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

When you are out looking at paper take a look at the die cut sheets. there might be one that would make a great stencil to use with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

With the end of 2017 it is time to get a new planner for 2018 and I decided to make one. Sharing a Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal. This Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal is made using Digital Images from Calico Collage – Dragonfly Delight. A Dollar Tree planner, bullet journal and monthly dividers from a 2017 Happy Planner.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Collecting a few of the following for this Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Here is a video Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

To make this Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal I began with taking apart the bullet journal. This is where a Xacto knife comes in handy. When you locate the start of the signature it is easy to pull the book apart.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Next, take the staple out of the Dollar Tree Planner. Then cut the pages down the spine because this was a one signature book and the pages need to be broken up into a three signature book.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Composition book pages are sewn to the calendar side of the Happy Planner monthly tabs. The top and bottom are sewn down and that makes pockets on each page.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

When printing the Calico Collage Dragonfly Delight pages I print lines on the back side. Then use the handmade dragonfly stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the back side of the pages.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

While the stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are out, apply to the bullet journal pages.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Use Distress Inks to stamp Dragonflies and quotes on the pages. I like how it adds another element to each page.

Acrylic paint was applied to the book pages with an old credit card. When the paint is spread thin with the card it allows the words to be faintly seen in the background. Stamp with Brutus Monroe Embossing ink and sprinkle with Brutus Monroe Gold embossing powder heat set.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

These new painted book pages were then folded on one side then sewn with a zigzag stitch. Now, these are new pockets for the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk JournalDragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Group the pages together. Paying attention to where the monthly tabs and the weekly planner pages fall in the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Once all the pages have been arranged it is time to attach the planner pages. Using Washi tape either attach to a journal page or to a corresponding planner page. These new pages will then rest in the journal and can be bound to the cover.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Making the cover is something I really enjoy. It makes me feel happy that this journal is almost complete. When the signatures are applied I will sometimes pet the journal. It makes me so happy.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

As I sit and admire my journal it fills me with joy. This is MY Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal. I get to use this for the next year. Hopefully, I will enjoy every day I get to write inside.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

A few weeks ago I was asked to make a Mermaid Planner Junk Journal for a friend. She wanted this as a gift for a dear friend of hers. After asking a few questions I had an idea of how I would make this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal and I began the task.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

Here is a list of a few of the items used in this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal.

Flip through video of the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal.

Once I had all the items selected for the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal it went together quickly. First I created a stencil using my Cricut, a seaweed image, and transparency film.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

Lately, I’ve found that I really like making a stencil to match the theme of the junk journal I’m working inside. While looking around for stencil material I remembered I had a box of write on, wipe off transparency film. To me, this was the perfect material to use inside my cutter and I was right. I had to adjust the blade settings but once I figured out how to get it set things worked great.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

The planner from Dollar Tree was a great help in this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal too. I wanted her to have space to write details or appointments and when I found this planner I knew it would work great inside the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal. Since there are over 200 pages inside she will have lots of room to write.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

The fabric on this cover was a remnant I picked up a while back. There was just enough for the cover of one junk journal and I knew I wanted to use it for this one.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

When the fabric was applied to the cover I decided that it needed more glam. That is when I used my fingers to spread around some Tulip Dimensional glitter paint. The glitter in this paint really helped to make this cover beautiful.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

I enjoy making custom junk journals and this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal was no different. It was fun to see how I could add the planner part into the junk journal and I think I succeeded. My friend was very happy with this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal and I hope that the person she gave it to loves it and will use the planner. 🙂

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

I’m loving this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal I just completed. Using the Calico Collage digital kit Song Bird. This time when I used this digital kit I decided to use a lot of pink throughout the journal.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

This Pink Song Bird Junk Journal measures 6 x 8.5 with 64 pages. Lots of journal cards and tuck spots throughout this junk journal.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

Here is a video flip through of the Pink Song Bird Junk Journal and Journal Kits.

For the cover of this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal, I used a pretty floral fabric with butterflies. I loved the pinks in the fabric and that is what made me choose to use pink inside the journal.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

Using the iridescent glitter tule on the dragonfly junk journal was a hit so I decided to use it again on this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

The pages have been sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists through stencils that I made using my Cricut. I’m really enjoying making my own stencils. I can match the theme of the junk journal and it is an original design.

Another favorite tool in my studio is my sewing machine. I love adding the zigzag stitches to the pages and elements.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

The lace elements in this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal were all colored with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Spraying the lace with the colors I love helps me use up the white lace in my stash. It also makes it easy to make more lace matching the colors I’m using.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

Sewing strips of the fabric to the journal cards helped tie the elements together. When making the Journal Kits I made sure to add enough of the fabric that can be used on the elements that you might make.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

When I’m making junk journals I really love being able to use my rubber stamps. It makes it easy to make pretty journal cards with a great select of stamps.

The journal kits have all the elements used in the Pink Song Bird Junk Journal. The sewn elements – pages and journal cards are done. But you get to choose where to attach the pocket, tuck spots and install the journal cards. You can even add more of your pages and elements.
