Fairy Garden Altered Paperclip and Tuck Spot

Here is another video from the Fairy Garden Junk Journal I’ve been working on. This is the Fairy Garden Altered Paperclip and Tuck Spot I created for the journal. I created these as kits for a workshop and it seemed to go over nicely. They liked that I had all the elements picked out and ready to go. Being organized while creating junk journals really makes it so much easier.

Here is the tutorial video showing how to make the Fairy Garden Altered Paperclip and Tuck Spot.

Once the images are printed and trimmed down to size use Vintage Photo around the edges. Apply vintage photo to the edges of the ticket, label heart and words.

Use a glue stick to adhere the domino image and the floral image. Snip a piece of eyelash yarn and place it on the images and then use Aleene’s Tacky glue to adhere the words and heart.

Add the flowers and that completes the Fairy Garden Altered Paperclip and Tuck Spot.

If you don’t have the tools to make the shapes, find things around the home to use as a template and hand cut the shapes. This is what I did for years until I got the cutting tools.

Tutorial Decorating Notebook paper for Junk Journal Page

When making a junk journal I like to include notebook paper, more space to write. Today I’m sharing a Tutorial Decorating Notebook paper for Junk Journal Page. I’ll be using lots of products, Calico Collage Fairy Garden images, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and more. These pages are super easy and fast to make. It’s fun to sit and make several in one session.

Here is a video Tutorial showing my Decorating Notebook paper for Junk Journal Page.

Tip, open up a Composition Notebook to the very center. Some are stitched and others are stapled. Remove the stitching or staples and you will have a very long piece of paper and you can use it with the lines going in the correct direction.

I love creating a stack of pages like this for Junk Journals. It’s very relaxing to spray and stamp on the pages. Adding little bits from the current kit helps tie things together.

Do you like wide ruled or college ruled notebook paper? I think I like the wide ruled so I can write bigger, but if I have a lot to say the college ruled is better.

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.

How to make a quick Keychain

Need a quick gift? Today I’ll show you How to make a quick Keychain Using Calico Collage Spring Peacock digital images, Tim Holtz distressed inks, Brutus Monroe detail in and Rinea Foil in Sapphire.

How to make a quick Keychain

When out shopping I saw a package of plastic Button Keychains by Playside Creations. These are 2.75 in. in diameter and I knew these would be beautiful keychains to add images inside.

Using my Silhouette Cameo 3, I pulled the 1 in. Digital images from the Spring Peacock set into the software and adjusted the size until it was the correct size for the keychains. I set the images to cut and saved the file.

Sent the images to my printer with the registration marks so that my Silhouette would recognize the sheet for cutting. Then placed the sheet on the Silhouette mat. Loaded the mat into the Silhouette Cameo 3 and told the software to send to Silhouette.

I just love watching my Silhouette in action! It cut the circles the perfect size for my project.

Once the images were cut I then took apart the plastic keychain case. Using Zig Two-Way Glue I glued two circles back to back.

Since the edges don’t always line up perfectly I then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Tumbled Glass to go around the edges. This will cover up the white areas.

As another measure to make the images look finished I then went around the outside with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven.

Selecting a sheet of Rinea Foil in Sapphire I then used the Tim Holtz Bow Paper Punch to punch a bow.

Time to put the keychain together. Make sure that the images are right side up and place inside the well of the keychain. Add the bow or other die cut shape then snap the cover back in place. Bam you are done. It took less than 5 minutes to make one of these keychains.

Here is a list of supplies use in How to make a quick Keychain
Silhouette Cameo 3 bundle
Spring Peacock 1 inch Images

How to make a Spring Paper Bag Junk Journal

Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit

I made a Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit. This kit is so beautiful I just had to make another journal using these papers. Many of the pages can be used outside of Valentines and I know I’ll be printing more of these for other projects.

Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit

For this journal, I decided to make the journal out of 11 in. x 17 in. card stock folded into thirds with pockets. There are lots of tutorials out there on how to make a journal like this so I won’t take the time to explain. But if you are interested I’ll make a follow-up post.

Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit

Once I had the pages defined I started distressing the papers and adding each of the printed images or scrap papers to the pages.

Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit

Every page has something added. Either it has a pocket or a tuck spot. All kinds of places to add notes or photos. Lots of little bits to write love notes or memories.

Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit

My thought was this would be a great journal to write love notes to that one that you love and give it to them. What fun would they have going through each page looking at each item. They could enjoy seeing the beautiful papers and seeing what you add to the book.

Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit

A flip through video shows all of the pages and the items added.

This video is a process video that shows how the book was made. It took over 3 hours to make this journal. Actually more as some of the time was planning on how to create the journal.

I really enjoyed making this Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit. There will be more journals offered in my shop so keep coming back to see what I have created.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

A Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas project. Little paper roses fill a mini 3 in. x 3 in. canvas. Rinea foil, Brutus Monroe ink, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Sizzix die, and a Silhouette image were used to create this Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

Being on the Rinea Design Team gives me the advantage of getting to play with beautiful foil paper. For this project I chose silver, light pink and mint green foils.

The Sizzix Bigz Die – Flowers, 3-D by Beth Reames was used to cut the flowers. Rolling the flowers with a quilling tool makes the flowers come together easily.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

Used Brutus Monroe Sea Chalk ink around the edges of the canvas and swiping a little across the top as well. Then a few spritz of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – True Turquoise and Iridescent Gold coat the canvas to give a beautiful shimmer.

Recently I acquired a new wreath die and used this to cut the mint card stock. The wreath was adhered with hot glue.

A pink scrap of card stock cut with the Silhouette Love image. Cut at 3 in. Adhered with a light glue.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

I arranged the roses around the canvas and adhered with hot glue. I just love how this little canvas turned out.

Here is a video of the whole process.

The Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas is a beautiful mini canvas that would be perfect gift for Valentines or even for Mothers day.

Who would you give this Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas to?

Hobby Lobby & Michaels Haul & I made a Stencil

Hobby Lobby & Michaels Haul & I made a Stencil. I did a bad thing as my husband would say. I went shopping. Mainly because I had a gift card and because I wanted to get some items for my Happy Planner.

Hobby Lobby & Michaels Haul & I made a Stencil

Boy was I lucky that I went shopping! While at Hobby Lobby I found a Happy Planner 9 hole punch for $17.99. I was going to go to Michaels and purchase the one they offer but it was $39.99. So I figured I saved money even if I have to make two punches for an 8.5 in. x 11 in. page. It was worth saving the money.

Since I didn’t have to use a 40% off coupon to get the punch I did pick up a package of 12 page protectors. These I knew would be fun to add items to my planner.

But I did make it to Michaels because one of my Facebook friends posted that there was a new display of Unicorn items. She was so bad for doing this! LOL I just had to go see what was being offered. Thankfully I had a 60% off coupon I could use and was able to get a great deal on a set of stamps, a package of unicorn washi tape and even stickers. I’m so excited to be able to use these in my planner.

Here is a little video of the items I purchased.

Finally while watching a video by Karen Burchill on youtube about her making a stencil for her planner. I got an idea to make a stencil on my Silhouette. This stencil fits the boxes in my Happy Planner. When I want to decorate a box and not make a mess outside of that box I can lay my stencil down and it will protect the area around the box.

Being excited about making this stencil I ended up making 3 patterns and a plain box. I see myself making more of these. Now to draw some designs to scan into my computer!

What kind of images would you like to use on your stencils? I would love to read your ideas, it may spark an idea to help me create my own stencils. And maybe I’ll even share the file with you if you have a Silhouette.
