How to make Christmas Rosettes

Another element to share from the Golden Christmas Journals. How to make Christmas Rosettes. Sharing my tips on making some fun embellishments for your junk journal or for a greeting card or other projects you might want to make. Ooh, how about a rosette banner?

How to make Christmas Rosettes

My inspiration came because of one of the lovely members of the Friendly Junk Journal People group sent a RAK (random act of kindness to me). When I saw the beautiful Rosette I knew that I wanted to create my own version.

After looking over my stash, I collected the supplies I wanted to use. Remember to dig around in your scrap bin for papers for projects like this one. You could even just use scraps and make all kinds of versions to have on hand.

Using the scraps and supplies from my stash I created these Christmas Rosettes quick and easy.  I liked using scraps that may not work for other projects, but for something small these were perfect.

Take a look at your supplies. If you don’t have the punches try using the bottom of a glass or other object to make circles. Use a penny to make large scallops around the edge and then cut it out. Just have fun playing with the paper.

Linda Israel’s Studio Tour 2017

Here it is, Linda Israel’s Studio Tour 2017. I’ve been asked to share an update on my Studio, or craft space or as Henry says, Linda’s Crap room. lol I decided after taking the following photo that I needed to clean up a bit and that lead to having the room tidy enough to show off the room.

Linda Israel's Studio Tour 2017

As you can see it was piled up pretty high on my desk. Sometimes I get busy and don’t take the time to put things away. I regret this, as I’ll start losing items. I can’t find that one thing I need because I didn’t put it away.

Now that the room is tidy I will share a video. Linda Israel’s Studio Tour 2017.

So do you think I have a large collection of Rubber Stamps and clear stamps? Heck, I even forgot to tell you about the ones on the shelf in binders above my cardstock! I have a lot of stamps! lol

Linda Israel's Studio Tour 2017

The collection began about 25 years ago and my first stamps only fit inside a shoe box. Then I got more and the collection grew. It has been a blessing when friends give me stamps or I find ones I love on discount. 😉

Linda Israel's Studio Tour 2017 Linda Israel's Studio Tour 2017 Linda Israel's Studio Tour 2017

When my old job was clearing out the mail room and they were going to throw out the old sorting bins I said, I would take them. Thankful that I drove a pickup truck back then as all I had to do was get the units loaded and taken home.

Linda Israel's Studio Tour 2017

The drawers were some of those really cheap three drawer units from Dollar General. I found these were the perfect size for the spaces to hold stamps and other items.

Linda Israel's Studio Tour 2017

Can you see those colorful boxes on the top shelf? Those are envelopes. Each box can hold 250! Need an envelope? I can hook you up! lol

The room is very full. It would be wonderful if I could take a week and pull everything out. Then reorganize things as I have things all over the room that should be grouped together.

Some of my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I decided a week ago that I wanted to see the bottles and I ran out of room in my drawers! LOL If you didn’t know I love Glimmer Mits. lol

Linda Israel's Studio Tour 2017 Just a few of the Prima Flowers I own. There are more in a box above these. My goal this past year has been to use up the items like these. I’ve already gotten rid of 5 bottles of flowers this year.

Linda Israel's Studio Tour 2017

To you, this may seem like a random photo but I wanted everyone the collection of Aleene’s Tacky Glue I have going on. How many bottles of glue do you see? lol And do you see my Brother Scan N Cut? Henry found it at a GoodWill for $60.00! This unit was brand new and never used! SCORE!

Linda Israel's Studio Tour 2017

Here is a view showing a lot of my paper. It is stacked to the ceiling! But I’m doing my best to use it up in my projects. What is it that you have the most of in your creative space? It’s a toss-up between Stamps and Paper for me. 🙂Linda Israel's Studio Tour 2017

We all want to have everything when we see something cool. Think about your purchases, do you love it enough that you want to keep it for the next 20 years? If so then get it and love it from now on. It might save you the headache of emptying a full room!

There are so many things I didn’t share today. I think the video would be a couple hours long if I share it all. LOL  If you are ever in Oklahoma, hit me up, you can have a private tour. 😉

What did you like about seeing Linda Israel’s Studio Tour 2017? Was there something you saw that you wish you could use or try out?

Remember it has taken me a long time and the generosity of my friends and family for me to build this collection. You could start a collection like mine, but it will take time and effort. 🙂

Paint Envelopes for Junk Journals

Do you have some papers that you want to alter? Then today’s post How to Paint Envelopes for Junk Journals is perfect for you. Using pages from an old book, acrylic craft paint and some glitter glue I alter paper to make fun envelopes. It’s a great mixed media project.

Paint Envelopes for Junk Journals

When you gut out the pages of a book you end up with a lot of pages that need a new purpose. While some pages are beautiful the way they are others need a little help.

This is where acrylic paint can be a great help. Using an old gift card or room key card and Acrylic Paint you can alter the paper.

Paint Envelopes for Junk Journals

Here is a video on How to Paint Envelopes for Junk Journals.

Collect a stack of papers to paint. Protect your work surface as this can get messy. I use old poster board or newspaper to help with any excess paint.

Select the color you want and a page. Pour some paint on the paper and use the card to spread it around. The more pressure you use the lighter the paint layer will be on the paper.

Paint Envelopes for Junk Journals

Once you have the paper coated with paint allow it to dry. Or you can use a heat tool to speed up the process.

My pages were already die cut with the Tim Holtz Envelope Die. If you don’t have the die, you can make your own template. Copy an envelope you already have or download one from the internet. With the new punch boards out you can use one of those too.

Paint Envelopes for Junk Journals

Once the envelope has been formed I then used a punch to create a closure on the back of the envelope.

There are a lot of fun to make and will be inside the Christmas Junk Journal I’m making. Keep following to see more projects.

A Mermaid Tale Junk Journal

The first thing I do is pull my digital papers to the front if I’m going to be using some in the journal. My reason for doing so is this will determine the size of all the pages I use in my junk journal. I prefer to have all the pages the same size. Occasionally I’ll do a journal with all different sizes of papers but when working with digital images I like using the size they are printed.

A Mermaid Tale Junk Journal

Having pulled the digital images out of A Mermaid Tale Junk Journal digital kit, I’ll see if I want to print lines on the back side and then trim the page of the white area down to the page image. Now I measure this page and that is the size I’ll cut the rest of my pages.

Napkin Embellishments

When all the pages are cut I’ll then decide to either stamp on the pages and Add Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

A Mermaid Tale Junk Journal

If I’m working on a theme then I will make embellishments as I make the journal. And by theme one that is not going to cross over from another very well. lol Like the Mermaid isn’t a Jane Austin style journal so you wouldn’t really find one in the other. But I will make a batch of Jane Austin style elements to use in lots of journals. Mermaid stuff I try to make as I need so I don’t have to store it when I’m done if it didn’t get used. 😉

Napkin Embellishments
A Mermaid Tale Junk Journal

Then I proceed in stacking the pages and adding the embellishments, including journal cards and tags. The cover is chosen out of cardstock this time to keep it simple and I liked the pattern. Using my sewing machine I sewed the elements in place. Doesn’t the stitching make you want to touch the cover?

A Mermaid Tale Junk JournalA Mermaid Tale Junk Journal

The cover for A Mermaid Tale Junk Journal is attached to the signature of pages with a pamphlet stitch. I used a pretty teal blue ribbon slipped through the binding and tied in a bow to hold it closed and the journal is done.

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.

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.

Video of how to make Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk Journal.

To begin making this Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk Journal I used bleached muslin fabric and freezer paper. I cut a piece of fabric and then iron it to the shiny side of the freezer paper.  Next using a rotary cutter and a cutting mat I trim the new fabric paper to fit inside my printer at 8.50 inches by 11 inches.

In my photo editing software, I edit the Calico Collage image I want to use for the cover and crop it down to just the image without the text. Then I set my computer to print on my inkjet printer. I have found that it is better to print on this new fabric paper soon or make sure to store it in a way that it won’t get damaged. As the new fabric paper will fray around the edges and you will need to trim these threads before printing.

Once the fabric has dried for a while I usually print and set it aside to dry for 10 to 30 minutes. If you try to use it too soon the ink will smear. Peel the freezer paper from the back Or leave it in place until you cut the page to the size needed for the project as the paper will help it to be easier to cut on some paper cutters.

Prepare the cover by covering it with fabric. I use Aleene’s Tacky glue to hold the fabric in place and then sewed a zig zag stitch around the edges to finish.

The inside cover is scrapbook paper. I find that I love to use printed paper for the inside, but sometimes the thin scrapbook paper isn’t enough. It might be necessary to add cardstock to the inside.

Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk Journal

One of my favorite things to do in my journal is adding pockets. These could be made with the actual page by folding up the bottom and sewing down the sides, or it could be making a pocket out of paper and gluing to the page. I think it adds interest to the pages.

Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk Journal

For this journal, I decided to try cutting apart the pages and rearranging. On the photo below I cut the lace portion out of the center of the page and added it over an old book page then attached to the edge of the page to make a double pocket or tuck spot.

Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk JournalFlowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk Journal

The left over piece was attached to one of my mop up pages and the new pocket covers the area where I cut the page.

Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk Journal

Adding scraps of paper to the pages is something else I enjoy doing. I’ve been lucky to have several friends give me scraps that I can use and I have a few of my own from making quilts. I think it adds a bit of softness to the journal. Don’t you?

Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk Journal

Love the Calico Collage images. The colors and images are so beautiful. When I use one of the kits I try not to cover up the beautiful work that was created on the pages.

Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk Journal

The beautiful Flower Mason Jar tags are a Freebie from Calico Collage. These are a perfect addition to this journal.

When all of the pages have been completed for this Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk Journal bind to the cover using waxed linen thread.

Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk Journal

Select a length of lace or ribbon and wrap around the journal and tie into a bow. Then on the spine of this journal I glued a pretty flower chiffon trim with Aleene’s Tacky glue. I just love how soft and pretty this looks. Using a small hole punch I added a hole at the top of the spine so that I could attach the journal bling I made.

Doesn’t the fabric cover look beautiful? I love how a fabric cover feels in my hands. It is so easy to print on fabric for junk journals. My hope is now that you have seen how to make a Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk Journal you will make your own.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

Made a Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal for day 30 of #junkjournaljuly. Unicorns have always been a favorite item to collect since I was a little girl. Today I thought why not make a Unicorn themed junk journal.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

This Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal measures 8.25 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide and has 16 sheets of paper for a total of 64 pages.

Here is a flip through video of the Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal.

Supplies used for the Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal
Lawn Fawn Unicorn stamps – two different sets, Critters Ever After Clear Stamp Set, LF1218 Winter Unicorn
Mama Elephant Over the Rainbow
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists
Scraps of Ivory Cardstock from Canvas Corp Brands
Various designer scrapbook paper.

Die cut shapes of various types.

Chameleon Pens
Tulip Glitter Paint
Book Binding Needles
Waxed Linen thread

Aleenes Tacky Glue

Lately, I’ve really enjoyed doing collages on the covers of the junk journals I make. It is a great way to use up scraps of papers by layering on the cover. This adds texture and interest.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

One day I sat and stamped the unicorn from the Lawn Fawn Winter Unicorn set and then die cut each one. The unicorns were then colored with Chameleon Pens. Using these pins really does make it easy to blend and get beautiful images. I’m still learning how to use these, but I’m very happy with what I create using these pens.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are my go to product when I want to add color to a page. I just love how it makes everything shimmer.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

Using my MISTI I was able to have perfect placement on the pages where I stamped either a Unicorn or a saying.

Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal

My goal for 2017 is to use up what I have collected over the years. Making this Pink Unicorn Travelers Notebook Insert Junk Journal was another way to use up this stash. Many of the papers I’ve had for years and I was unsure how to use many of these papers. Making a Junk Journal gives me a way to use these papers up as pages or elements in the Junk Journals. My stash is starting to get a little smaller every day!

Take a look around at your stash and see what could be used in Junk Journals. You might be surprised at how easy it is to make these journals and use what you already have to make them.

Day 13 of #junkjournaljuly and I made a Rejoice Travelers Notebook Junk Journal. This could also be a prayer journal.  This one I decided to use red throughout. I pulled all kinds of scraps from my stash to make the elements in the journal.

The Journal Measures 8.25 tall by 4.25 wide and has 15 sheets of paper to make 60 pages. It has four mini journals that have three sheets of paper or 12 pages.

Some of the things that I used in this journal range from scrapbook paper, map, coloring book page, old bible pages, graph paper, notebook paper, mop up sheets of paper and more. I also got to use a lot of my tools, like a cool ticket punch by Little B.

I also got to use a lot of my tools, like a cool ticket punch by Little B. Using my sewing machine lets me add texture and interest to the journal too. Once washi tape wasn’t something that I used. I was annoyed that it didn’t always stick where I wanted it to stick. The newer styles stick a lot better.

My stash of ribbon is finally getting more use as I’ve found that I like sewing it onto elements. I think it adds just a touch more to the project and now I can’t stop using ribbon in my junk journals.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists is one of my favorite products to use and I love how it looks in this Rejoice Travelers Notebook Junk Journal.

Another feature of this journal is the four mini journals I made using scraps of paper. I fold these in half and sewed with my sewing machine. I love how cute these turned out to be.

As I said, in the beginning, this is day 13 of my personal challenge to make a junk journal every day in July. I’m still on track and have made a journal or even two every day so far.  My hope is that I have inspired you to create. It doesn’t matter what, but create something every day.
