Supplies used for the Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial.

Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Let us begin the Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial. Starting with a napkin, separate the layers by using a piece of clear tape on the back side to peel the layers from the printed design.

Next, select a dictionary page and cut to 8 x 10.5 inches in size apply glue stick all over one side of the page. Carefully lay this page on the smooth napkin. Gently smooth the two together. Flip the dictionary page over and apply glue stick on that side and smooth the napkin on top.

Trim off the excess napkin with a paper trimmer or scissors. We want clean edges.

Since the napkin didn’t cover all of one side of the page, let’s make a pocket using a scrap of fabric measuring 4 x 10.5. Cut a piece of cardstock at 1.25 x 10.5 and a pretty lace at 10.5 inches long.

Apply distress ink on the side and bottom edge of the strip of cardstock. Make a sandwich with the Fabric, Cardstock Strip and Lace on top and sew these layers together.

Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Sew the pocket on the page and around the edges. Doing this attaches the pocket to the page and gives a decorative element around the edges too. Use a strip of a 1-inch x 3-inch piece of orange fabric to make tabs on the sides.

Select a page from the Calico Collage Natures Glory Digital journal kit and print lines on the back side. Trim page, removing the white edges around the page measuring 10.45 in width.

Spray the back side of this page through the lace stencil using the two orange colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Fold the page and apply distress ink around the edges. Attach the printed image to the napkin side of the page without a pocket using washi tape.

Add Journal cards, envelope and tags to the pockets and the Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial is complete.

Orange Tag Tutorial

Today I’m sharing an Orange Tag Tutorial with you. The tag will be a part of my Orange Junk Journal Page Tutorial and I wanted to give more time to make the tag so that it was easy to follow along. There are two more pages to complete and then I’ll have a rainbow done for my junk journal.

Supplies used for the Orange Tag Tutorial.

Let’s get started on this Orange Tag Tutorial. Begin with cutting a scrap of orange cardstock at 4 x 6 inches. Then cut a book page about 3.75 x 5.75 inches. Add distress ink around the edges.

Spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on a scrap of book page measuring 2.25-inch square and the book page topper through the Lace stencil. Mop up the excess Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists with a sheet of copy paper or book page. These make great backgrounds.

Adhere the book page using the No-Clog Writing Cap on the Best Glue Ever. A small bead of glue is all that is needed. Select a scrap of lace and adhere on top mostly on the left side of the tag.

Select a patterned paper that is 4 inches wide by 2 inches tall this will become a pocket on the tag. Cut a 2.5-inch square out of a scrap of orange cardstock. Select an image from the Calico Collage Beauty in Roses. Apply distress ink, Walnut Stain around the edges of all of these pieces.

Adhere the Circle image on top of the book page, then the book page on top of the cardstock. Next, adhere these on top of the 4 x 2-inch strip on the right side.

Take the tag base and the pocket pieces to the sewing machine. Add stitches around the perimeter of the tag, attaching the lace to the base. Ad stitches around the perimeter of the circle image and then down the sides of the pocket.

Adhere the pocket to the tag with the Best Glue Ever, making sure to only glue on three sides.

Orange Tag Tutorial

Lay down a snippet of eyelash yarn. Then, select a few paper flowers to match and adhere on the left side of the pocket over the yarn. Apply Tulip Dimensional Glitter Paint in the centers of the flowers.

Punch a hole in the top of the tag using the Crop a Dial Eyelet Setter and Hole Punch tool. Use a strip of 1 x 8-inch orange fabric and tie through the hole on the tag.

Wasn’t that an easy Orange Tag Tutorial? What color will you make for your tag?

Tiny Envelope Tutorial

The Miniature Envelope Tutorial was a hit! Today I’m sharing Tiny Envelope Tutorial using the template’s I created for the other video and showing how to create the tiny envelope and embellish it too.

Supply List for the Tiny Envelope Tutorial

The process for this Tiny Envelope Tutorial. Choose a mop-up paper or scrapbook paper or any other paper you want to make into an envelope. On the back side use the miniature envelope template and trace with the Sharpie Pen.

Tiny Envelope Tutorial

Cut the envelope out using Fiskars Scissors. Then add distress ink to the edges. Fold the envelope and add distress ink on the new folded edges.

Tiny Envelope Tutorial

Attach the word(s) that have had distress ink applied around the edges to the front of the envelope. Adhere a tiny heart in the corner to represent postage.

Tiny Envelope Tutorial

Using the No-Clog Writing Cap on the Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect apply a small dot at the peak of the envelope and allow to air dry. Once the glue is dry it is tacky and makes a great temp adhesive for the envelope flap.

Tiny Envelope Tutorial

Create a tiny card to fit inside the envelope measuring 1.5 x 1.25 inches. Apply distress ink around the edges and adhere a word.

Tiny Envelope Tutorial

Aren’t these super cute? I love how these turned out. For the first nine people that place an order for the mini envelope template and the words, I will send one of these little envelopes. Hurry as I know these won’t last long.

Altered Handbag Tutorial

Day 31 of #useitupjuly, last one! Today I’m sharing an Altered Handbag Tutorial. Years ago I purchased a white coach purse with brown leather accents. This purse was one of my favorites, but it started to get dingy! So I stopped carrying it and it stayed in my closet. It is now time to transform this handbag so I can use it again.

Supplies Used for this Altered Handbag Tutorial

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Turquoise Blue, Curious, Patina, Tea Cup, Cranberry Zing, Fully Purple, Pop Rocks
Paintbrushes
Pallet to hold Glimmer Mists
Water
Scotch Guard
Leather Cleaner
Scotch Guard

Altered Handbag TutorialAltered Handbag Tutorial

Begin the Altered Handbag Tutorial by selecting a few colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I found that the darker the color the better it dyed the fabric. Use a paintbrush that is damp with water and dip into the color one at a time and apply it to the fabric.

Altered Handbag Tutorial Altered Handbag Tutorial

Once the fabric gets wet the color will absorb better. Keep applying color until the bag has the color you want.

Let the bag dry and then apply Scotch Guard and allow to dry.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Day 27 of #useitupjuly, today I’m sharing a Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial another in the series of different colors for junk journal pages. Using wallpaper, transparency film, acrylic paint scraps and a couple of digital images from Calico Collage.

Supplies used for the Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

This month is almost over and I’m still finding things to use up in my stash. This Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial project came about because of the requests to make different junk journal pages in different colorways.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

When I’m working on a project I collect all the items that could be used in a basket. Some of these items may not get used, but if these are in the basket then it is easier to see what is available to use in the project.

Wallpaper is a great way to add a pattern to a project and if you are lucky you can pick up sample books when these are retired. Just ask at your local wallpaper store if they have any discontinued wallpaper sample books.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Paint the back of the wallpaper to match the project, using acrylic craft paint. Using this paint is super easy and inexpensive! Apply with an old gift card and the paint dries quickly.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Add a pattern to the painted side using a stencil and a different shade of blue acrylic craft paint and a paintbrush. Don’t worry about being perfect, it is all about adding color and texture. Allow the paint to dry.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

For this Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial, I used a piece of transparency film for a pocket. Map out where you will want a pocket. In my page, there are to places for pockets. On those places add stitching. Then layer the transparency over the wallpaper design and stitch in place. This allows the pattern to be seen through the transparency and creates pockets.

Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Accordion fold the image from the Day Dreaming digital journal kit. This will be adhered on the painted side of the wallpaper, leaving a pocket to add a journal card.

Finish decorating the page by adding journal tags/cards and stickers.

Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Day of 22 #useitupjuly and today’s project is a Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial. Several members of my Facebook group Friendly Junk Journal People wanted tutorials on different pages. This is one of many junk journal pages that I’ll be sharing.

Supplies used for the Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial

The goal is to use up all the bits and pieces for the Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial that I can. Thought that sharing how to make individual junk journal pages might inspire each of you to use up your stash.

When I have leftover bits I try to sort by color. Using 12 x 12 clear scrapbook pockets to keep everything in order and easy to see. Before I cut a large sheet of paper for a project I look in the pockets to see if there is something I can use. Don’t want to create more scraps.

Images from Magazines and Calendars are a great source to add color to junk journals. Trim out of the magazine or calendar and use any way you like. If there is writing on the back side of the image you want, then add another piece of paper. Notebook paper is a great back and it gives you lines to write upon.

Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial

White and Ivory lace is great to have in the stash. The lace can be sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to match a project. It cuts down on having too many colors of lace that you may not use all of the time. But white or ivory lace is easy to work into a project as it can be changed.

Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Think outside the box when making journal pages. It’s okay to splice two pieces together to get the size you need. Remember there is no wrong way to make a junk journal page.

Paper Pocket Tutorial

Day 19 of #useitupjuly and I’m sharing a Paper Pocket Tutorial. These pockets are perfect for junk journals. One pocket I really like because it holds lots of goodies that can be placed anywhere in a journal and taken out to use the bits.

Paper Pocket Tutorial

Paper Pocket Tutorial Video

Supplies used for the Paper Pocket Tutorial

I’m working on my goal of using it up in July by going through my stash and finding ways to use items.  Each project reduces my stash a little at a time.

The plan for the Paper Pocket Tutorial today was to use brown paper sacks, book pages, transparency and a sewing machine to make pockets.

The size of the pocket is determined by the journal. I measure the page and subtract about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch. That is the width of the pocket. The height is usually no more than 4.5 inches. It depends on how large the journal pages are and what will go inside.

The inspiration for the first pocket: one day while playing around with paper, I decided why couldn’t I create a multi-pocket out of one sheet of paper. That is when the three pocket came about. Being able to see bits at different levels in the pockets gives just a little bit of charm to a junk journal. A removable pocket is so much fun!

Paper Pocket Tutorial

The second pocket I made used transparency film that I purchased for a different project but the transparency film didn’t work for that other project. That is when I thought, hey it can be a pocket in a junk journal. And that is how I decided to use transparency film over a stamped piece of kraft paper sack.

Paper Pocket Tutorial

Take a look at those supplies you have and use them. Sure it is fun to go shopping, but after a while, you can have way too many supplies and it can overwhelm you. Don’t be overwhelmed with too many supplies, use it up!

Experiment with your supplies to find new things. If trying something for the first time, use old book pages or scrap paper to make the prototype. Sometimes I like how the prototype turned out with scraps! lol

Have fun creating and Use It Up!

Use Your Wings Junk Notecard Tutorial

This month is halfway over! Day 17 of #useitupjuly sharing, Use Your Wings Junk Notecard Tutorial. Using the junk on my desk and a stamp I create a little notecard.

Use Your Wings Junk Notecard Tutorial

The video for Use Your Wings Junk Notecard Tutorial.

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.

Pamphlet Stitch Binding Tutorial13

Video showing the Pamphlet Stitch Binding Tutorial.

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. 🙂
