Happy New Year Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Happy New Year everyone. Today I’m sharing a Happy New Year Junk Journal Page Tutorial. This Junk Journal Page is for the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group for a swap.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

The idea is that we all trade pages and then we can use these in our junk journals. The size of the pages are 8 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide is folded in half to make an 8 x 5.25 inch.

Supplies used in making the Happy New Year Junk Journal Page.

Video Tutorial for the Happy New Year Junk Journal Page.

This Happy New Year Junk Journal Page is super easy to create. Using a 12 x 12 sheet of scrapbook paper that has a light color or print that goes with your theme is helpful.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Using the Fiskars paper trimmer and a stylis score at the 8-inch mark down one side. Rotate the paper and score at 10.5 inches. Fold up the 4 inches at the bottom. Next, fold over the 1.5-inch flap to the smooth side of the paper. On the flap turn the corner of the lower flap down to give a finished edge. Fold the page in half with the 4-inch pocket at the bottom and now on the front of the page.

Now that the page has been folded you can now see where to decorate with stamps and the stencil. Once the page has been stamped and sprayed let it dry for a moment and then added lace to the flap and the pocket. I use a glue stick to hold the lace in place and then sew the lace on my sewing machine.

Adhere the flap and pocket to the page with the Best Glue Ever and set aside.

Assemble the words and numbers, add the rhinestones with the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Jellie. Adding flatback rhinestones to the project was so easy using ScraPerfects, Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie.

Attach the words and 2018 to the page with the Best Glue Ever. Then add the journal cards and tuck spot.

Making one of these junk journal pages is so much easier than trying to plan a whole journal at one time. I find that if I think about one page (it actually creates four pages when added to a journal) it is much easier for me.

When you are out looking at paper take a look at the die cut sheets. there might be one that would make a great stencil to use with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

With the end of 2017 it is time to get a new planner for 2018 and I decided to make one. Sharing a Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal. This Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal is made using Digital Images from Calico Collage – Dragonfly Delight. A Dollar Tree planner, bullet journal and monthly dividers from a 2017 Happy Planner.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Collecting a few of the following for this Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Here is a video Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

To make this Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal I began with taking apart the bullet journal. This is where a Xacto knife comes in handy. When you locate the start of the signature it is easy to pull the book apart.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Next, take the staple out of the Dollar Tree Planner. Then cut the pages down the spine because this was a one signature book and the pages need to be broken up into a three signature book.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Composition book pages are sewn to the calendar side of the Happy Planner monthly tabs. The top and bottom are sewn down and that makes pockets on each page.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

When printing the Calico Collage Dragonfly Delight pages I print lines on the back side. Then use the handmade dragonfly stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the back side of the pages.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

While the stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are out, apply to the bullet journal pages.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Use Distress Inks to stamp Dragonflies and quotes on the pages. I like how it adds another element to each page.

Acrylic paint was applied to the book pages with an old credit card. When the paint is spread thin with the card it allows the words to be faintly seen in the background. Stamp with Brutus Monroe Embossing ink and sprinkle with Brutus Monroe Gold embossing powder heat set.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

These new painted book pages were then folded on one side then sewn with a zigzag stitch. Now, these are new pockets for the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk JournalDragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Group the pages together. Paying attention to where the monthly tabs and the weekly planner pages fall in the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Once all the pages have been arranged it is time to attach the planner pages. Using Washi tape either attach to a journal page or to a corresponding planner page. These new pages will then rest in the journal and can be bound to the cover.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Making the cover is something I really enjoy. It makes me feel happy that this journal is almost complete. When the signatures are applied I will sometimes pet the journal. It makes me so happy.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

As I sit and admire my journal it fills me with joy. This is MY Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal. I get to use this for the next year. Hopefully, I will enjoy every day I get to write inside.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

A few weeks ago I was asked to make a Mermaid Planner Junk Journal for a friend. She wanted this as a gift for a dear friend of hers. After asking a few questions I had an idea of how I would make this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal and I began the task.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

Here is a list of a few of the items used in this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal.

Flip through video of the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal.

Once I had all the items selected for the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal it went together quickly. First I created a stencil using my Cricut, a seaweed image, and transparency film.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

Lately, I’ve found that I really like making a stencil to match the theme of the junk journal I’m working inside. While looking around for stencil material I remembered I had a box of write on, wipe off transparency film. To me, this was the perfect material to use inside my cutter and I was right. I had to adjust the blade settings but once I figured out how to get it set things worked great.

The planner from Dollar Tree was a great help in this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal too. I wanted her to have space to write details or appointments and when I found this planner I knew it would work great inside the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal. Since there are over 200 pages inside she will have lots of room to write.

The fabric on this cover was a remnant I picked up a while back. There was just enough for the cover of one junk journal and I knew I wanted to use it for this one.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

When the fabric was applied to the cover I decided that it needed more glam. That is when I used my fingers to spread around some Tulip Dimensional glitter paint. The glitter in this paint really helped to make this cover beautiful.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

I enjoy making custom junk journals and this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal was no different. It was fun to see how I could add the planner part into the junk journal and I think I succeeded. My friend was very happy with this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal and I hope that the person she gave it to loves it and will use the planner. 🙂

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Welcome my friends, today I’m sharing a Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial. This pocket was in the Let it Snow Junk Journal and I made extras for the Simply Winter Junk Journal kits. I thought I would share How I made it so others could make their own Junk Journal Pocket.

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Here is a video showing the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial.

Supplies used for the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

The method used in this Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial is very simple. Take a page out of an old book. I’ve even used books from the Dollar Tree. Fold the book in half from top to bottom. Turn down one corner and adhere in place.

Using a Snowflake Stencil (I made the stencil myself using my Circut and a snowflake image and cut on Transparency film.) Spray with both colors of Tattered Angels Mists.

Once the page is dry (can use a heat tool if necessary) take to the sewing machine. Stitch around the outside edges to add a touch of zig-zag stitches.

Next using the Calico Collage Vintage Holiday charm image, a few punched shapes and some sheet music decorate the pocket. I even used some blue eyelash yarn for cool texture.

To put in the pocket I made a tag using Canvas Corp Brands Canvas an index card and more of the Tattered Angels Mists.

After watching the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial I know you will make a lot of these fun and beautiful pockets.

Custom Gypsy Junk Journal

A month ago I was contacted by one of my followers and asked to make a Custom Gypsy Junk Journal. Using the list of items she liked and didn’t like, I created the journal. Used journal kits from Calico Collage – Gypsy Love and Nature’s Glory along with other items from my stash.

Custom Gypsy Junk Journal

What I enjoyed about this journal was dying the lace with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Lately, I have found that it is better if I purchase white lace and change the color with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. That way I can make it match my project.

Custom Gypsy Junk Journal

This Custom Gypsy Junk Journal has lots of colors throughout. I love how the pages look with the addition of lace, stamping and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

How to make Three Junk Journal Embellishments

Just finished up a Let it Snow Junk Journal and thought I would share a tutorial. How to make Three Junk Journal Embellishments. Using Calico Collage Victorian Holiday 1 inch charms and other elements from my stash.

Three Junk Journal Embellishments

Collecting items from my stash, which includes a few tools, it was time to start creating. What I love most about Junk Journals is being able to use all the different supplies and tools I’ve collected over the years. Busting out tools that might have a little dust on them, makes me happy.

Stamping and also die cutting the papers helps me make unique junk journal embellishments. Since these are tools I own it is easy to duplicate a look and I ended up making four of each of these three junk journal embellishments for the Let It Snow Junk Journal and Journal kits.

Using the one-inch square punch I proceeded to select images from the Victorian Holidays charm set. I love how perfect these images look backed with other shapes of paper.

Christmas Junk Journal Page

Today I’m sharing How to make a Christmas Junk Journal Page. Using digital images from TsunamiRose – Christmas List Ephemera Pack, vintage hymnal page, ribbon and more.

Christmas Junk Journal Page

Each month the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group has a page swap. It is Junk Journal Page Swap. The requirements; the page has to be 8 x 10.5 inches and when folded measures 8 x 5.25 inches. Each page should have a pocket and a journal card/tag included.

So other than sticking with the theme we had a lot of choices on how we can make our pages. This month it is a Christmas/Winter theme. I decided this would be a perfect project for the TsunamiRose kit Christmas List Ephemera Pack. Love the Vintage images, there are lots to choose from in the kit so you can mix it up too.

Here is a video of How to make a Christmas Junk Journal Page.

When I made this Christmas Junk Journal Page I really did want to try some new things. I also wanted to make sure that I used some junk from my stash. This journal met my goals.

Christmas Junk Journal Page

Something new I used in a Junk Journal Page was sewing on wide ribbon and making a pocket with it the ribbon. Someone shared a photo of something they had made with a ribbon and it sparked my creativity. I’ll share the actual project later on as I want to do another tutorial. 😉

Christmas Junk Journal Page

Being able to use up some of my stash is so wonderful. I was able to use that red ribbon that I’ve had for so, so very long. The wide Christmas Poinsettia ribbon has also been in my stash for a while.

Christmas Junk Journal Page

Wander around your studio and look at things differently.  There maybe be a cool something that you can use, the ribbon, the tule, and lace from another project. Have fun using it differently.

Christmas Junk Journal Page

My Christmas Junk Journal Page ended up with 4 pockets and one tuck spot. There are eight different pieces to write or add memories to as well. Looking at it, now I want to keep it, but I signed up for the swap so I guess I’ll just have to make a second one if I want my own.
