What is the best thread for binding junk journals?
Waxed Linen Thread is my first choice.
Crochet Thread
Bakers Twine
and in a pinch embroidery floss – use all six strands.

There are a lot of different threads on the market these days. Choose the one that is best for you and your budget.

I prefer waxed linen thread as it is strong and hold my journals together nicely. I’ve been using waxed linen thread for many years and I’ve not had an issue with it breaking.

Now that you know What is the best thread for binding junk journals, what is the next junk journal you will make? Me I’m still working on Christmas projects.

Hello Spring Greeting Card

See the Hello Spring Greeting Card I made on the Brutus Monroe blog today. Used the New Roses Background stamp from Brutus Monroe and last years Hello Spring. Also used an image from Calico Collage Simply Spring digital images.

Hello Spring Greeting Card

Loved making this card. I’m so ready for Spring to arrive. We have fluctuating weather here in Oklahoma. One day it is freezing the next it is 70 degrees.  Soon we will be able to say Hello Spring for good!

Stamped the Roses Background and then sprayed with one of my favorite products: Glimmer Mists.

To make the Roses Background and Digital Image I used:
Roses Background
Hello Spring Stamp set
Calico Collage Digital Image from Simply Spring
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – True Turquoise and Party Pink

Watercolor paper
