Once all the supplies are gathered making these Super Easy Altered Paperclips is a breeze.

ScraPerfects Best Glue Ever is perfect for adding just a little adhesive to the book page. Since the paper is thin and the glue only takes a small amount I don’t have to worry about my paper buckling.

Painting paper is a lot of fun. I like the ability to change the paper to match my project by just adding craft paint.

For the past year, I have stopped buying flowers in color. I only purchase white or natural colored flowers. The reason is I already have a stash of colors that I don’t use because these don’t match my other colors. So I found that if I use white or natural flowers I can change those to any color Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists I would like.

Tulip Dimensional Glitter Paint has been one of my favorite products to use to add a little sparkle. It doesn’t take much and looks so pretty.

The Embellie Gellie helps with placing the rhinestones just where I want them to be on the flowers. Sure keeps me from dropping a bunch of rhinestones.

Postage Stamp Embellishment Tutorial

Recently inside Friendly Junk Journal People, I was asked, how do I use postage stamps? That prompted me to share the following Postage Stamp Embellishment Tutorial. In the video, I show how I use postage stamps as focal points on a mini paper bag and journal card. I also show a few other examples and ideas where Postage Stamps can be used.

What I really love about a project like this is you can make it any way you like. Each one can be unique or you can make sets. Since we are using old items it’s okay if they don’t all match.

Save those leftover bits of paper and use shape punches to get more bang out of that stash. I found that If I will go ahead and pull a few paper punches out and just try to get the largest shapes first, then go to a smaller punch until there is nothing left. Doing this when you cut a sheet of paper for a project, or if you have a Circut or Silhouette you might use those leftover papers when the shapes are cut.

I had a lot of fun making the example in the video. Before I started the video I made a couple other sets. This can get addictive making these up.

The pinks in these just make me so happy. Party Pink was sprayed along with a small amount of Fully Purple Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists through my Butterfly Stencil. The 4 x 6 inch watercolor card looks so pretty as the sprays bloomed on the paper.

The second set is a little more traditional vintage look. Used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Kraft and Walnut Gold on these elements. Also used the same Butterfly Stencil as before, it seems to work in lots of situations.

When I created the Vintage looking set I remembered that I had some tiny postcards and a passport stamped images. I had even already fussy cut these out. Score for being a quick project.

Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distressed Ink was used with a script background stamp. It just adds another vintage touch to the mini bag.
