7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book

Day 21 of #useitupjuly, today sharing 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book times two! It was so fun making the Embellishment books a week ago that I decided I would make two more in a different theme. Using lots of items from my stash and several from 7Gypsies I share two books that were made.

Supplies used in the making of the 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book.

This is the Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial I made on July 12. It features using the Frankenpages technique to create the cover and pages. This video also shows how the cover book was constructed and all the goodies inside the first two I made.

The 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book is a great way to use up scraps and items that you have had for a while, or that you have duplicates of in your stash.

When these books were made I was going through my stash and found where I had cut items out of the 7Gpysies booklets and out of sheets of images. Being able to find a use for the leftover pieces helps me a lot!

As an artist and crafter, I tend to find reasons to keep things that might be trash to others. The postcards used for the pages is one of those items. But having those pieces to use as a base helped these 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Books come together.

Once I got started it was hard to stop with just one book! lol I have supplies to make dozens of these little books. Creating with a theme helped me focus on the creation of the first 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book. When it was done I realized that I had enough to make a second with similar items.

Take a look at the stash you have. Find those items that you love and put them to use. We spend so much time shopping and collecting that we forget to create! My hope is that you are inspired to create after seeing one of my videos.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

Sharing a Glue Sponge Container Tutorial. This is a small vessel that holds a sponge and white glue to help with adhering papers together, especially when doing collage.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

Super quick Glue Sponge Container Tutorial Video.

Supplies used for the Glue Sponge Container Tutorial.

I used a container I had on hand for this project. The key is to make sure that it is airtight so the glue won’t dry out.

Cut the sponge if necessary to fit inside the container. Some containers may require three layers of sponges, some only one.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

Place the first sponge into the container and add just a little water, about a tablespoon amount. Then pour the Aleene’s Tacky glue over the sponge. Layer with additional sponges in the same manner.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

I used the water because Aleene’s Tacky glue is very thick and I wanted it to have a little help to soak into the sponge.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

After every use, I add a layer of glue on top before closing the container. This ensures that there is plenty of glue for the next project.

Hopefully, you found value in this Glue Sponge Container Tutorial and will make your own.

Mixed Media Frankenpages

Today I’m sharing my version of Mixed Media Frankenpages. I’ve been making mixed media collages for years and this is a great way to use up scraps of paper. In today’s project, I share how to use old book pages and mixed media to make some Mixed Media Frankenpages. Making these pages is also therapeutic. There is something about gluing papers together that just makes me so happy.

Aren’t these so fun! I just love all the colors together and the sewing just brings the whole thing together.

What I really love about this project is it is just fun. It is fun to see how the acrylic paint and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists will react on the book pages.

While I might do the same technique no two are ever alike. Variety is fun and adds interest.

Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements

Yesterday I shared how to print and cut a few Calico Collage Simply Spring images. Today I’ll show you how to use these items to make Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements. These elements or embellishments can be used for other projects as well – make greeting cards with pockets for the journal cards. There are lots of ways to use these elements.

Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements Tutorial video.

Supply List for the Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements

Having all the images cut and ready to use helps to make this project go faster. Once all the images had Vintage Photo Distress Ink added to the edges. Then I cut mats out of various pieces of cardstock from my stash. This is where I like to use up all those old sheets of paper and put them in my die cut and punched shaped box for use in projects.

Print and Cut Digital Images with Silhouette

Using pages out of an old book gives these elements a vintage look. Warning that some books are very brittle, if you use the papers you may need to attach to another piece for stability.

Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements

Adding lace to the elements seems to bring a little vintage charm as well. Don’t you agree?

Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements

Making a journal card with a pocket is also super cute. Great way to use up tiny bits of paper too.

Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements

One of my favorites in this set of Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements is the denim pocket with small journal card. I really like how this turned out. The denim and watercolor paper were leftover items from other projects. Feels good to use these in the project today.

Crazy Pages Junk Journal

Getting the Crazy Pages Swap has been so much fun. There are so many talented artists in this swap. Now I’m taking all those amazing works of art and turning it into a Crazy Pages Junk Journal. Using as much of the items that came in the mail and a few things from my stash I create a super cool Crazy Pages Junk Journal.

Crazy Pages Junk Journal

Video showing how I bound the Crazy Pages Junk Journal and a view of the pages I put together.

The idea behind these crazy pages was for us to decorate the pages when we got them in our possession. I decided that I would turn mine into a junk journal that can be further embellished.

Crazy Pages Junk Journal

The Crazy Pages Junk Journal measures 9.25 x 6.25 and has a total of 32 pages. The cover of the Crazy Pages Junk Journal is a watercolor paper that I stamped and then sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists through one of my stencils. Next, I sewed around one of the Crazy Pages to then attach to the cover and leave room for a pocket.

Crazy Pages Junk Journal

Used several of the envelopes that the Crazy Pages were mailed inside. By using the envelops those became the base page to attach the Crazy Pages. And it kept the old envelopes out of the trash. 🙂

Crazy Pages Junk JournalCrazy Pages Junk Journal

Some of the envelopes I applied acrylic craft paint, some got Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. It all depended upon my mood and what was on my desk at the time. lol

Crazy Pages Junk Journal Crazy Pages Junk Journal Crazy Pages Junk Journal

Using my sewing machine to add design touches or to attach elements just makes me happy.

Crazy Pages Junk Journal Crazy Pages Junk Journal

Now that the journal has been made I’m looking forward to adding more artwork. 🙂

Crazy Pages Junk Journal Crazy Pages Junk Journal Crazy Pages Junk Journal

The different sizes of the pages really make this Crazy Pages Junk Journal unique. While some of the pages might have been duplicated slightly no two junk journals would be 100% alike as we all have different ways to create journals.

Make sure to look at the other Crazy Pages that have been posted on YouTube. There are some who even made a Crazy Pages Junk Journal like I did.

Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements

It has been a few days since I did the Gel Press Play Time and now it is time to use the Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements. This project a was also prompted because I’m in a blog hop #thanks4watchingart on YouTube with a lot of very talented artists. Make sure that you visit each one to see their projects.

Gel Press Play Time

Using my new Gemini cutter from Crafters Companion with their dies I was able to sit and play for a while and turn the Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements. I love how intricate the dies cut even on thin papers.  Too many times in the past I would cut a die and it wouldn’t do a good job, but the Gemini cuts beautifully every time.

el Prints into Junk Journal Elements

Here is a video showing how I took the Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements.

Supplies used today in this project Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements.

My method was to use the pages I had with the dies from Crafters Companion in the Gemini and see how it turned out.  Each print is unique, even when I used the same colors no two were the same, similar but not the same. I love this idea of making a bunch of prints and then using these for junk journal elements. It was fun to use the Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements.

el Prints into Junk Journal Elements

Before you throw out those old papers and pages take a look at my Gel Press Play Time post and see if you can then turn these Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements like I did.

Once you get started you won’t know when to stop. lol Have fun making your own.

Using napkins as an embellishment inside a junk journal is easy and beautiful. Each time a napkin is used you can get a different look, depending on the other elements you use.

Napkin Embellishments

What I like about using a napkin is I can create several elements to go into the junk journal and thus carry out the same theme. Or I can use only one of the napkin embellishments for a focal point.

Napkin Embellishments

There really isn’t any limit to what you can do with these new napkin embellishments in your junk journals.

Stay tuned for the tutorial on A Mermaid Tale Junk Journal where I used these elements.

Junk Journal Note Cards

Junk Journal Note Cards, what are these and how to make them. This is the reason for the post today. There are so many ways to make journal note cards for a junk journal. Today I’m just sharing one idea that I hope will inspire you.

Junk Journal Note Cards

For years I have collected paper items. It goes in stages of collecting and using. When I originally found the papers I had other plans for them and used some for those ideas. Now that I’m making Junk Journals these paper items are getting a new use.

Junk Journal Note Cards Supplies
Page out of a dictionary – I used the page with Love defined
Bingo Card
Watercolor Paper
Glue Stick
Aleene’s Tacky Glue
Distressed Ink – Vintage Photo
Blending tool
Vintage photo
Scrap paper.
Sewing Machine

The supply list is short and simple. I’m sure you can find a few things to make Junk Journal Note Cards in your stash too.

Here is a video on How to make Junk Journal Note Cards.

The process is very simple. Selecting the items from my stash I proceeded to cut the papers as necessary.

Using Distressed Ink – Vintage Photo I added a bit of color around the edges of the papers.

Layered the dictionary page onto watercolor paper using a glue stick and then sewed with a zig zag stitch on a standard sewing machine.

Junk Journal Note Cards

Once the sewing was done I then proceeded to layer the other elements. One of the elements was cutting the definition for the word Love and layering on top. When I make journal cards I like for these to remain flat so that it is easy to write on the backside.

Junk Journal Note Cards

Making Junk Journal Note Cards is a lot of fun and a great way to use up bits and pieces that you may have in your stash. Take a look around and see if you can find some cool images inside a magazine, junk mail, old photos, and more.

Here are a few other Junk Journal Note Cards that I made using this same process.

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.

Flowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk JournalFlowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk JournalFlowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk JournalFlowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk JournalFlowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk JournalFlowers and Lace Fabric Cover Junk 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.
