Handmade Pink Grace Prayer Junk Journal, I made using the Calico Collage digital images – Pink Grace. Also used, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Scrapbook papers,

Video Flip through of the Pink Grace Prayer Junk Journal.

This handmade journal has 3 signatures of 10 pages for a grand total of 120 pages. It Measures 5.25 x 7.5 x 2 inches.

There are 9 embellished paper clips in this Pink Grace Prayer Junk Journal.

For this journal, I tried to keep a theme throughout even the folded pockets that are inside. There are about 12 different folded paper pockets or tuck spots added to this journal.

So that there was plenty of room to write notes there are 4 mini journals tucked in pockets throughout this journal.

Used several different Spiritual stamps throughout.  These were stamped in either Tim Holtz Distressed ink or if black it was Brutus Monroe Detail Ink.

The smaller color printed images are also from Calico Collage – Bible Verses domino size images. I cropped three images that I felt matched the color in the Pink Grace Prayer Junk Journal. These were printed as a photo sheet of nine images which made these larger than the domino images.

Other journal spots were from Calico Collage and are free to use. These were the Vintage Seed Packets, and I altered the colors to match the Pink Grace Prayer Junk Journal.

I was glad to be using up more of my scraps of paper from my stash. The scraps were used in the die cut images and tuck spots in this journal.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist were sprayed on every page. I love how it gives a beautiful shimmer to the pages, don’t you?

The cover of this journal is a scrap of canvas from Canvas Corp Brands. I sprayed the canvas with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to change the color to match the journal. I did the same with the strips used as ties for the journal.

This Pink Grace Prayer Junk Journal would be a great gift to give to someone you love. You could write notes in this journal and then give it as a gift. Several of my friends have been making journals like this to give to their daughters.

Unicorn Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Kit

So in love with Calico Collage Unicorn Magic journal kit. So I’m sharing a journal I made, Unicorn Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Kit. This was a special request from Tracy that I met through Junk Journal Junkies.

Unicorn Junk Journal

The Unicorn Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Kit is my second Unicorn Junk Journal. I really do love this journal kit, the colors are so beautiful, the images are fabulous.

For this journal, I decided to use some pink copy paper for several of the pages. On the back side of these pages are lines I printed. Then I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to add shimmer and texture via a stencil. The transfer from one page to the other from the stencil turned out so cool.

The new dies and old dies in my stash are getting a good workout with these junk journals. I’ve been able to dig through my scraps of paper and turn these into journal spots for the journals I’ve been making. It feels good to use up these bits of paper.

My friends may say I’m a hoarder, but I feel that it is justified when the items I save that might be trash to another are perfect for junk journals. If you have the space to save these items, why not?

This journal has already been shipped to its new home and Tracy sent me a message that she loves what I created in this Unicorn Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Kit.

Here is a video flip through of Unicorn Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Kit.

Want your own Unicorn Junk Journal? Feel free to contact me here, or on my Facebook page or even on the video at YouTube. I’ll be more than glad to create a junk journal for you.

Two Sweet Elegance Junk Journals

I’m really on a roll when it comes to Junk Journals. Today I’m sharing Two Sweet Elegance Junk Journals that I made using Calico Collage Sweet Elegance Digital Journal Kit.Two Sweet Elegance Junk Journals

In my stash, I have a large supply of really nice heavy handmade watercolor paper that is cut to about 6.5 in. x 12 in. These are nice and heavy perfect for a small Junk Journal Cover. I cut the paper to be 6.25 in. x 10.5 inches and used one of the journal pages on this to be the outside cover.

Inside the journals, I used all kinds of scrapbook paper, left over paper, lined notebook paper, graph paper and more. Many of the pages were sprayed with various colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

What has really been the most fun was using the scraps and leftover pieces from other projects as elements in these Two Sweet Elegance Junk Journals. Sometimes when I stamp something to test the image or just thought I was going to make a card or something, but there was something not right. So I put it into a file folder to deal with later. These have been perfect for journal cards inside the junk journals.

The journals have one signature of 10 sheets of paper for a total of 40 pages.

What may have been considered trash is now a treasure for junk journals. I’ve had some papers for almost 20 years that finally got used in a junk journal.

These papers are fun to die cut into various shapes. I’m getting my monies worth out of my Tim Holtz Vagabond and the dies I’ve picked up lately.

 

Now I look at dies differently. Can this be used as a journal spot? Could this be used as a tuck spot? I’m also looking at the scraps of paper differently. Is it large enough to make a mini card inside the junk journal?

I even saved the strips of coloring book page to be tuck spots on another page in this junk journal session.

What I really love about junk journals there is no wrong way to make these. Whatever you like and enjoy can be put into a junk journal.

Here is a video talking about the Two Sweet Elegance Junk Journals I made.

These Two Sweet Elegance Junk Journals were a lot of fun to make, and I’ll be making more of these.

Be Brave CCB Traveling Journal Entry

Being part of the CCB Traveling Journal group is a lot of fun. Here is the April Be Brave CCB Traveling Journal Entry. I used the Naturally Aged Paint System Precious Stone as the foundation along with lots of other supplies.

Be Brave CCB Traveling Journal Entry

Supplies used in Be Brave CCB Traveling Journal Entry
Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Kit – Granite (Precious Stone Faux Finish Paint Kit)
7gypsies Ordre Du Jour 8×8 Paper Pad
Architextures™ Junque Pack – Parlour
Memory Box die Large Ringlets
Gold Rinea Foil
Brutus Monroe Be Brave Stamp set
Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink
Brutus Monroe Gilded Embossing Powder
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink, Vintage Photo
Zig Two Way Glue
Aleene’s Tacky Glue

Check out the video showing the Naturally Aged kit. I used this as the background for the journal page.

Since the note on the journal said that the pages were thin and that paints were seeping through I decided that it would be easier to create the page outside of the journal and then paste it when it was complete. That’s a cool thing about art journaling, it is easy to adapt when necessary.

Then here is the video showing how I made the Be Brave CCB Traveling Journal Entry.

Do you like to art journal? Art journaling is a great way to express yourself. It isn’t necessary that you share the entry with the world, but you can do the entry for your own pleasure.

Be Brave CCB Traveling Journal Entry

What I love about art journaling is there isn’t a right or wrong way to make an entry. Create whatever you want, with whatever supplies you like to use.

The process of making a journal entry in this traveling art journal is something that I enjoy. Each month a new journal arrives and a plan forms on how I will create my page.

Be Brave CCB Traveling Journal Entry

To see the other journal entries do a search on Social media for this tag: #ccbtravellingartjournal or #ccbtravelingartjournal Also make sure you visit Canvas Corp Brands Blog, there are lots of beautiful things posted to inspire you.

How to make a Canvas Covered Junk Journal

Have you been to Michaels and seen the Mixed Media Packs? I used one in a journal. How to make a Canvas Covered Junk Journal shows how I used this Mixed Media Pad and the canvas included.

How to make a Canvas Covered Junk Journal

A few days back I shared a shopping haul that included two of the Mixed Media Packs. There are so many wonderful papers and textures in these pads. Check out the video here.

How to make a Canvas Covered Junk Journal

For this junk journal, I truly decided to pull items from my stash. When I have scraps of paper from fished projects I save them in a storage pocket. So I pulled several of these pockets and dug through the papers. The items may not have been perfect for the original purpose and ended up in the storage pockets, but now they were perfect to add into a junk journal.

Save those pieces that you think are not perfect, you will be surprised how well these will work inside a junk journal.

The mixed media pack I used is called Frills and I found it at Michaels normally for $14.99 each. The papers are 12 in. x 12 in. cardstock. I decided that I also wanted lined papers for journaling. I used some linen papers from my stash, that I then ran through my printer and added lines. Since these papers were only 11 inches long and I wanted these to be 12 inches long I added scraps of paper and washi tape to the ends to extend the length.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are such a great way to add color to the pages. I’m not one to use coffee or tea to stain the papers. The brighter colors appeal to me and Glimmer Mists are a great way to add these brighter colors to pages.

Have you ever looked at those daily flip desk calendars? The ones with beautiful images and sometimes a quote. Years ago I would get one to display on my desk at work. I saved several of those pages and these are great images to add to a junk journal.

The images from Calico Collage Flowers for my Lady Journal Tags are perfect for small journal spots. These images are ATC size measuring 2.5 in. x 3.5 in. I love the vintage images with the flowers. Mine were printed on cardstock so these make perfect journal spots.

There are three signatures with then sheets in each. That means there are 120 pages to enjoy in this journal. There are eight altered paper clips throughout the journal as well. The junk journal measures 6.75 in. x 7.75 in. with a two inch spine.

One of the tuck spots was something I learned from YouTuber PinkOddBird. She showed how to make some really cool envelope, tuck spots and I loved how those turned out so I added a few to this junk journal.

Making this journal took a while, well over 5 hours, closer to 6. I filmed at least 2 hours and condensed it down to 1 hour. Enjoy the video on How to make a Canvas Covered Junk Journal.

A close-up of the Canvas Covered Junk Journal cover.

If you only want to see a flip through of the journal I made another video just showing the goodies inside.

Unicorn Magic Junk Journal

I’m so in love with this Unicorn Magic Junk Journal. Hopefully you love it too. I used the Calico Collage Digital journal kit Unicorn Magic to make this journal along with stamps, scrapbook papers and the mop up pages when I use Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Unicorn Magic Junk Journal

There is so much beautiful color throughout the journal. If you are a pink and purple fan, then this is a perfect color combo for you. Because doesn’t everyone love Unicorns?! Ever since I was a young girl I have loved Unicorns.

Unicorn Magic Junk Journal

When Norella the owner and creator of Calico Collage said she was making a Unicorn Kit I was super excited! I think I responding in all caps that I loved the designs.. Working with these images has given me such joy!

The journal measures 5.5 in x 7.5 in. with a 1.5 in. spine. It has three signatures of 10 sheets of paper which make 120 pages to journal or add items. There are 9 different altered paper clips throughout. I made eight pockets out of pages from old books and decorated these pockets with various colors of washi tape. Pink lace seam binding ties the journal closed.

Here is a video flip through of the Unicorn Magic Junk Journal.

When I spray items with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists I line a box with a sheet of paper. This sheet of paper is an old letterhead that belonged to my husband. The company logo changed and they told him to throw out the paper and they sent new paper to him. Well, I knew that was a waste of paper so I kept it and I used it as a mop up sheet.

Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal Unicorn Magic Junk Journal

The results of using this old letterhead to soak up the glimmer mists make a beautiful paper that is perfect for pages in a junk journal. I trimmed off the letterhead log as best I could. When some of the images remain I find clever ways to cover it up. In the Unicorn Magic Junk Journal, I created tuck spots. Some fo these tuck spots are long strips of paper. Some tuck spots are just enough to cover the corner.

On many of the pages, I used stamps to add more interest. I love looking at different images and colors in a journal. Adding stamps throughout helps to not leave any blank pages.

How to make a Shabby Chic Kitten Greeting Card

Kittens are so cute, so I decided to put one on a greeting card. Here is a project on how to make Shabby Chic Kitten Greeting Card. Using the Calico Collage Painted Kittens Digital Download, Scraps of paper, Spellbinders Die, Tim Holtz ink, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Prima Flowers, and more.

Shabby Chic Kitten Greeting Card

These kitten images from Calico Collage are super cute! I just had to have these so that I could make a few projects with these images.

If you are like me when making paper crafts you want to use up all those pieces from previous projects. This is one of those projects to use up bits and pieces.

When I clean up my desk I sort the scraps by color family and place these into 12 inch x 12 inch scrapbook pockets. Then when I want to make a project that only needs a scrap I pull out these pockets. That is what I did for this project.

The background paper was left on my desk from the Bi Fold Mother’s Day card I made a few days back. I thought that the colors were perfect to go behind one of the kittens. Also from my stash was the pink cardstock, the ivory cardstock and the white cardstock.

Watch this video to see How to make a Shabby Chic Kitten Greeting Card.

Handmade Natures Glory Junk Journal

I’ve made another Junk Journal. This Handmade Natures Glory Junk Journal features the digital journal kit from Calico Collage: Natures Glory. It is a beautiful digital kit with lots of flowers, butterflies, and moths.

This Handmade Natures Glory Junk Journal measures 5.5 in. x 7.25 in. with a 1.25 in. spine. There are three signatures with 7 to 8 pages in each.  This will make about 84 pages in the journal.

Handmade Natures Glory Junk Journal

For this kit I decided to print the pages and then on the backside print lines for journaling. This way I could trim the pages down to the image area and then fold, boom instant page.

So that I would have enough pages in the journal I used several scrapbook papers. These were twelve by twelve inch papers that I trimmed down to eight and a half by eleven inch. Then I printed journal lines on the backside of these pages.

Once I had all the papers on my work table I then started using a border punch on the edges of some of the papers. I love the beautiful look this gives the pages.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are a beautiful way to add color to white pages. I’m not one that really likes the tea dye color for a whole page and for a whole journal. But using the Glimmer Mists gives beautiful color hues that blend well with this journal kit. And the added shimmer on the pages just makes you want to pet the paper.

Digging through my stamp stash I found some butterfly, flowers and a swirl stamp to use on some of the pages. Tim Holtz Distressed Inks were used as those had a light hue so that journaling could still be done over the stamping.

There are several pockets that I made throughout this journal. Some were from a random book in my stash. Others were from a dictionary that I picked up at a thrift store. If you ever feel like you can’t destroy a book check out the thrift store for books. Usually, these are very old and no one is going to collect these. Thus great books to pull apart for junk journals.

Recently I picked up a butterfly die and it is a great solid die. These were cut out of a gold yellow paper and placed in several of the pockets.

Here is a video flip through of this Handmade Natures Glory Junk Journal.

Journal making is a lot of fun. I’m really enjoying these digital kits from Calico Collage. The images that she uses in the kits are beautiful. Make sure to check out her shop to see all of the beautiful kits she offers.

The fun thing about these paper dolls is that you get to make them any way you want. With the items in the kit you can pick and choose which patterns you want to use. Or you can make up your own.

For my Spring Peacock Paper Doll Fairy I decided to add some of the Rinea paper foil. I love the shine and sparkle it adds.

Video for How to Make a Spring Peacock Paper Doll with Rinea Foil

The paper doll is super easy to make. Cut out the desired doll. Since mine were printed on copy paper I glued mine to cardstock.

Select the Rinea foils that match the Doll parts and die cut the butterfly and roses.

Paint the Bamboo Skewer black with acrylic paint.

Use the Cross Lock Tweezer or a quilling tool to make the roses. I use hot glue to finish the rose as it sets up quickly.

Using purple acrylic paint, cover the back of the dolls head to mimic her hair.

Adding a little extra to the outside edge, trace the dress on the Purple Rinea Paper Foil and cut out. Adhere to the back of the dress.

Hot glue bamboo skewer to the back of doll body. Attach arms and legs with Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Make a lace petticoat and adhere to the back of the dress. Hot glue the dress to the body.  Tie lace around the body at the waist to represent a belt. Leave extra in the back to look like a big bow.

Adhere the Rinea Paper Foil wings to the Calico Collage Wings with Aleene’s Tacky Glue. Then adhere both to the back of the doll.

Place the large Rinea paper foil rose at the waist of the doll with hot glue. Add the smaller rose and a couple of silk flowers on her head.

Admire your super cute fairy you made.

Spring Peacock Paper Doll with Rinea Foil

Now that you know  How to Make a Spring Peacock Paper Doll with Rinea Foil, do you have plans to make several? I think I’ll be making a few more and will hang some from the ceiling in my studio. Won’t that be fun!
