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.

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.

Some of the items used in Unicorn Magic Junk Journal.

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.

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.

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.

How to Make a Hipster Greeting Card

If you have been following me for any length of time you know that I have a hard time leaving white space on a card. Today’s project is no different.

Here is a video for How to Make a Hipster Greeting Card

Stamping, spraying, and coloring is so much fun. sometimes I forget how much fun it is until I sit down to make a card like this one.

The layers of color on this card gives it depth. To me, it looks like a spent a very long time creating this card but really it wasn’t long. Do you ever look at a project you made days later and think, hey who made that? Then realize that YOU made it, that you were the creator of something wonderful?

Do you ever look at a project you made days later and think, hey who made that? Then realize that YOU made it, that you were the creator of something wonderful? Sometimes when I look through old photos or visit a website where I submitted my work I’ll stop and say hey I like that one. And then after a moment, I’ll realize that it was my own work! lol

Creating a greeting card to give to someone is so much more than giving them a lift for the day. It can also brighten your spirits while you create and then when giving the card or art to another person.

Go forth, create and share with the world, it does make a difference. And no I’m not weird, I am a Limited Edition. 😉

How to make a Birthday Wishes Card Using Scraps

If you are like me there are scraps left over from projects. Today I’ll share How to make a Birthday Wishes Card Using Scraps. The focal point is an image from Calico Collage Natures Glory digital journal kit. The Birthday Wishes Stamp is from Brutus Monroe as is the Detail Ink – Raven.

How to make a Birthday Wishes Card Using Scraps

When I clean up after a project I try to see if there is some way I can use up the bits and pieces that are left over. Looking at the Natures Glory image I knew it would be a perfect focal image on a greeting card.

Since I knew I also needed to make a project featuring a Stamp Club set from Brutus Monroe I had several sets on my desk. Flipping through the stamps I saw the Birthday Wishes and an idea formed.

Here is a video showing How to make a Birthday Wishes Card Using Scraps.

Used the Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven to stamp the Birthday Wishes from the Brutus Monroe Stamp club set on a scrap of white paper.

Washi tape from my stash added another layer to the card. On my desk was a tied black and white bow and a smaller waxed linen bow. Self-adhesive rhinestones add a touch of bling.

A page torn from an old book also makes a great background. Don’t worry I didn’t destroy a best seller book. It was one that I picked up at a thrift store. Usually, these old books can be found for under a dollar and these have nice old pages that can make great backgrounds on cards.

Next time you are cleaning up your work area take a look at those scraps and see what else can be done. That way you don’t store the scraps, you make a finished project.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.

Life is Art Card, in under ten minutes

Another ten minute card: Life is Art Card, in under ten minutes. For those days when you need a card fast here is another quick one to make. The Brutus Monroe Be Brave and Botanical Banners are a perfect pairing.

Life is Art Card, in under ten minutes

Supplies used for Life is Art Card, in under ten minutes:
Be Brave
Botanical Banners
Gilded Embossing Powder
Embossing Ink
Heat tool
Surface Inks: Rouge and Cabbage
Tsukineko 6-Pack Fantastix, Brush/Bullet Tip Combo for All Purpose Ink – on Amazon
Ranger Blending Tool
Rose flecked cardstock
A2 Greeting Card
MISTI
3  x 4 Acrylic Block
Aleene’s Tacky Glue

Video of how to create Life is Art Card, in under ten minutes:

Having a package of Rose flecked cardstock on hand helped in the decision on what color to use for this card. My goal this year is to keep using the stash I have. I feel like I have enough paper that I could use a page every day and still not have it all used in 100 years. Of course, I’m probably exaggerating a little. lol.

One of my online friends said she has a hard time cutting paper to the sizes she needs for her cards because of a stroke. So she takes the paper to a print shop with a list of paper sizes she uses. For a small fee they will cut the paper to her needs and then she doesn’t have to think about the measurements, she can just grab paper and go. This is a good idea if you are a card maker and want to have things precut.

Personally, I keep my paper in full sheets unless it has been cut for a project. Then when I need paper I know to look in one of two places. The full sheet bin or the scrap bins. Slowly I’m making a dent in this paper stash, one day I’ll have it down to a more manageable amount, right? lol

Making this card is very simple. Select a card topper to stamp the Roses from the Botanical Banners. Using the MISTI stamp the roses with Embossing Ink in the lower left corner. Emboss with Gilded Embossing Powder.

Next stamp life is art from the Be Brave stamp set with Embossing Ink and emboss with Gilded.

Use the Fantastix tool to color the leaves with Cabbage.

Color the roses using the Ranger Blending tool and Rouge.

Adhere the card topper with Aleene’s Tacky glue. Boom you are done.

What I like about this card is that you can change the colors and it will have a different look. Have more time? Then you can add some bling; rhinestones, pearls or sequins to the card. Tie a ribbon around the top before you glue the topper down and you have a whole new look. It’s a starting point or it’s a finished card. So many options, because you are the creator.

My hope is that you are inspired by this project today. That when you need a card fast you are able to put it together with little effort, but it looks like you worked so very hard on it, and your friends will be impressed.
